If the roll beats the spell’s effect, the target is free of the spell and can act normally.

Bio:

Phase One: Background: Where did you come from?

Warren grew up poor and living in a worn trailer home. His father was usually drunk so Warren was raised more by his mother. In school Warren was usually in trouble and did poorly outside of shop and gym. Between his frequent fights and his mother’s growing illness, Warren dropped out of high school and went to work.

Phase Two: Rising Conflict: What shaped you?

That summer, Warren came home to find his drunken father beating his mother. Warren’s anger and fear erupted as FIRE. He burned his father to death in a moment and started the trailer on fire. He pulled his mother to safety and ran. Days later he was found by Aaron Boyce, warden of the White Council. Aaron sponsored Warren and saved him from execution. Warren studied as Aaron’s apprentice for years learning to control his evocations and his temper.
