|"At the risk of sounding clichéd, when you play with fire..."
-- Paragon Adrale Domyrri
The Callers are the living conduits of elemental perfection - to call them any less would be a woeful understatement. Where Arcanists bear some minor innate talent that is trained and coaxed to its full majesty, Callers manifest a link directly to the full fury of the elements - often spontaneously and from young ages. This is, understandably, extremely dangerous: experienced Callers have taken to tracking down and training those who suddenly find themselves with the ability to channel such primal force before they destroy themselves - or worse.
The majority of the established Callers have focused on one of three elements - fire, air, or water, though many at the peak of their power have risen to master two, weaving them together for unprecedented destructive capability. Of the many ways they choose to harness their powers, however, one common thread binds them all: an utter lack of subtlety.
Though their power must be tightly controlled, Callers benefit little from the highly regimented study and experimentation that marks their Aspalarian counterparts, the Arcanists. Once a Caller has established a sufficient level of control over their own abilities to avoid incinerating, freezing or blowing apart themselves and their surroundings they often dive straight into a life of inner contemplation, meditation or adventure. There is no single path to true elemental mastery and personal discovery is seen as a highly individualistic quest.
Their power and often charismatic nature has led them to be the heart of the Accord, both politically and militarily - of the Paragon Circle, the majority are Callers, and until recent times they occupied most positions of import.
When their ire is raised, Callers are a terrifying sight to behold. At their smallest gesture, blizzards form and coat the world in a blanket of snow. A sharp word calls forth sparks of lightning that grow until the very air hums with their power. Those who follow the path of flame will often march into battle already burning themselves, filling the hearts of their foes with despair as the fire leaves them unharmed.
|"The question is never 'do we have the power' - we do. The question is whether we are capable of harnessing it. In a world where the weak link breaks, we must ensure that our enemies are the ones found lacking."
