The Null Alchemist
Alchemists are all geniuses in their own right to understand the complex principals involved in drawing creating and activating alchemy arrays is the mark of nothing but a genius by any intellectual standard. but among these gifted individuals there are those who understand the concept but lack he ability to activate arrays. though rare sometimes these individuals make leaps in the progress of alchemy regardless of their shortcomings. Sven is one such individual. Scientifically minded from a young age and being the son of a librarian gave him all the foundation he needed to pour his heart into the foundations of alchemy and indeed sciences that others with alchemical talent often ignore. by the age of 15 he was recognized as an honorary apprentice and by age twenty and honorary alchemist despite never being able to activate an array. Inquisitive and methodical would be traits most use to describe him. He also has a strong sense of humility given his ever present handicap in his field witch most would say serves him well in the discovery of new unnoticed solutions that normal alchemists might not think of.
