Cyrus Drake, a very complex man. When you first talk to him for your tutorial, he says clearly, "Another Myth wannabe"? from that moment you know he's one of the best teachers. He won't go easy on you and he will push you to your limits. He's actually the best teacher in my own opinion. Well I hope this isn't a spoiler, but at level 18 for Myth only he becomes a bit more nicer, seeing you've proven your capable of perusing your Myth intentions further.
How would you feel if your brother/sister/ or even mom or dad when nuts? Angry right? Only a few people who won't waste your time and have common sense will be the one's you'll admire. Cyrus isn't evil, and Diego may suspect that because he's Malistaire's brother, but don't judge people by who their related too, after all would you like that? Now that we know Cyrus doesn't intend to be so cruel, maybe he'll get some respect !
Yeah, like when <SPOLER> you beat him to get into Dragonspyre, he's like "Yeah, well, Dragonspyre is a MILLION times more dangerous than fighting ME!" Then, when you beat Malistaire, you gail some TOTAL respect from him. You gotta prove yourself.
I love Cyrus! My first wizard was a Myth wizard (she has since been deleted because I had no idea what I was doing) and after taking an Ice wizard to legendary, I went back to Myth. I am now at level 43 and am loving it, especially Cyrus and his sarcasm. :D
I created a myth character simply because I love Professor Drake :P Not in the lovey dovey way of course, but because his dry humor and sterness reminds me of my favorite fictional book character Larten Crepsley from The Saga of Darren Shan. Not to mention the grandmaster spell for myth is awesome! Medusa is beast.
