State Alchemist[edit]

A dog of the military. Practitioner of a science that to some seems like magic. You are a state alchemist. Whether you still serve under the military or not, that is how you are branded for the rest of your life. Most people despise state alchemists, seeing them as hounds that serve their warmongering leader with blind loyalty whilst doing nothing for the people. So why do you serve in as a state alchemist? Have you "retired" from the position? Are you seeking something through connections to state? Or are you escaping something from your time serving in the military?
