As virtually all lizard mage, considers him superior to other beings both mortals and immortals. His main drive is greater power and greater knowledge. Others are just pawns to him and he has even attempted to use the children of gods as his pawns in his great games. Cariellis always has games inside of games being played. Very few of his actions have just one meaning. Of course he does not really trust anyone, even those who are his allies. After all, if he may betray them, why should he consider that they will not betray him. While he normally keeps his word of honor, it is not absolute and will betray one which he has given his word of honor too with enough motivation.
In the past, he has pretended to work with those of the side of good to further his own ends although he sees the whole idea of good and evil beneath him. Even though he is definitely evil, he does not enjoy torture although as a tool it can be extremely useful. It is also a great way of increasing magical energies and will use it as well as death to power magic when useful to him. He usually keeps a number of slaves around him and uses zombies extensively as well.
He does have several well exploitable weaknesses. He has a tendency to underestimate others, considering them lesser than him. This is especially true about mortals. When he finds that he has been out-foxed by a mortal, he often gets extremely angry and may fly into a rage. In a rage, he often lashes out against those around him especially his servants. As well, he does not like to risk himself, preferring to work through minions even in some cases where direct intervention would be the most advantageous response. He also has been known to have relationships with his female allies including a relationship with a half demon / demi-god and with a Night Stalker Dragon.

Cariellis is surprisingly handsome creature if someone can see past the fear of his. He stands almost eight feet tall and has a dragon like head. He also has a short tail and dinosaur like feet. His scales are an extremely handsome gold and silver which glisten in the list. His eyes are a glittering emerald green with what looks like flecks of blue in them.

Cariellis's History:

As with many lizard mages, his history is shrouded in mystery. He is extremely ancient and appears to have traveled between different worlds and universes. What worlds he has explored is a great mystery. Early on, it appears that he learned the magic on how to preserve himself so he does not age. It is unknown where he came from originally although he does not appear to have been originally from either the Earth or from the Palladium World.

He has likely surfaced many times in the history of the Earth and may have been on Earth during the height of the Atlanteans. His spoken Greek is absolutely perfect. Other candidates include in Sumeria, during the height of Greek Empire during the Trojan War, during the height of the Roman Empire. There is even a possibly that he lived for a huge period of time in England and may have been one of the powers behind the throne. With his magic abilities, he has the ability to pose as almost anyone and often pretends to be the benefactor of a group in trouble to gain their trust.

He appears to have traveled to the Palladium World several times and that is where he learned the fine arts of Ward Mastery, already a master wizard. He probably did not visit the world until the Elves ruled the world and it is possible that he was one of the instigators which caused their collapse. He also appeared to have stayed for over a century in the Western Empire, posing as an Elven wizard. There, he instigated more trouble. The lizard mage is most likely the cause for several minor wars during his time there and almost once took power behind the throne. He was only thwarted by a powerful dragon.

Eventually, after exploring the Mega-Verse for untold years, he appears to have returned to Earth. Now, the Earth blossomed with magical energy like it had not since the time which Atlantis was in its zenith. In fact, Atlantis had returned. It was a wonderful time where he could bask in the power which had taken over the world.

After doing a bit of exploring of the world on his own, the Lizard Mage decided to settle near the city of Tolkeen and began to spread out his webs of control. While he often posed as a Human or Elven wizard, he decided to discard such a disguise. Pretending to serve on the side of light, he worked to make a variety of allies. Included in this was a young but extremely skilled knight. Another ally, a bit more dubious, was a shifter who was the have breed child of a demon lord. Still, he was able to make himself look like a positive force although all his goal were for himself. He built a major fortress for himself deep underground and protected it with wards. Some activities were a bit questionable such as the use of zombies and animated dead this were mostly ignored.

Darkness fell on the City of Tolkeen in the presence of the Coalition. This empire hated anything to do with magic and even distrusted psychics. The city was something which had to be crushed. As might be expected, the leaders of the city asked the powerful Lizard Mage for his help. Instead, he decided to flee and form a new empire with him as ultimate ruler. It is interesting that his long lime ally, the demon born shifter decided to fight for her lands near Tolkeen.

For a long time, the Lizard Mage had been dealing with the minions of the Splugorth. They would pay high fees for slaves. He settled in the eastern part of what had once been the American Empire and had himself built a tower as a fortress. It was where was once called Pennsylvania. Once in his stronghold, he began to gather allies including a Mystic Knight and a Baby Nightstalker Dragon. Along with this, he began gathering a small army to fight for him. This time, his minions would be definitely serving the side of darkness. These forces began conquering the small villages around, selling some of those conquered into slavery into Atlantis. It turned into an extremely profitable enterprise.
