An elf of average height, Cornelius is late of the Mage’s Academy, eager to make something of himself. To him, while running around and defeating evil is a good way to make a name, his main goal is to get experience so he can make this career self-sustaining, i.e., he wants to be able to settle down eventually in a nice tower and actually make a LIVING at magic. Rich would be nice, but he’ll settle for a small tower near a town with a white picket fence, a family, etc…
As for adventuring, well, it’s means to an end. While he’s not a coward, he does appreciate the notion of descretion being the better part of valor and would like to live to fight another day, if possible. If not, he’s a staunch ally (he hopes) and will fight to the bitter end, if necessary.
Now, having said all that, he’s also known to be a tad larcenous if it will help his (and the party’s) goals (like raising some sorely needed funds or getting the party out of a sticky situation with their heads intact). After all, he wasn’t born with that smooth tongue for nothing. Think of Brett Maverick and you’re not too far off.
