"I need to concentrate on this spell, so kindly shut up... Generals."
Shashi's family have lived on Hinoiri for a while, producing many scholars and mages. As soon as Shashi's talent was discovered, he was placed in training to become a Gate Mage, and quickly proved to be a bit of a prodigy and invited to the largest school in the capital. It was here he met Ravi Falk, the only other person at his level in his age group. Shashi graduated and was given a position at the palace, one that Ravi declined without giving a reason. Shashi considers his job as recognition of his talent, taking it quite seriously.
Shashi is quiet, and generally keeps a cool facade, with maybe a couple of sarcastic comments muttered under his breath. He does want to be seen as an adult, so will keep things professional then, even though he might think many adults aren't any better than his peers. He does respect skill, though, so will be slightly warmer to people he sees as having some great talent, though he tends to see other gate mages as possible rivals or benchmarks. Has problems just relaxing instead of working on improving himself.
Gate mage, powerful enough to serve as the focus for inter-world travel, though he still needs amplification (the Hinoiri palace has a room designed for this) or other mages in the background. He has some healing abilities, but lacks the finesse to do much more than throw magic at a problem. Shashi is also naturally pretty bright outside of magic, and has sharp hearing.
