Ceris is a Cí-Cennian senator who has been driven by both his political goals and his ancestry to rise through the echelons of power and take over the highest office in the kingdom: Chancellor. He keeps his magical abilities hidden as the use of magic within government is forbidden, but that doesn't stop him from using them in subtle ways.
Ceris' political aspirations are just a contributing factor to his personality. He is a crafty man, always trying to stay three or four steps ahead of his opponents. He is tactful and sly in his dealings; definitely someone to watch out for.
