He would spend most of his days learn and training every day from magic to strategy and politics, everything a potential emperor might need to rule an empire.
Alistair's world would change at the age of 12, when his mother fell ill and would quickly pass away, he was at her death bed when she passed, as they pulled him away to get to physicians to attempt to save the empress, Alistair lost control of his magic and set his own arms ablaze until a mage put him to sleep, he suffered Second-degree burns along both of his arms, leaving scars which still remain wrapped in bandages.
From the point of his mother's death, he and his father relationship started to grow slowly more distant and contentious, with him remarrying and two more children, his half-sister Lilith and her twin brother. Alistair had a good relationship with his stepmother, albeit things were slow to start off with but she treated Alistair as if he was her own son with her becoming pillar he could lean upon when he needed to, though always referred to her by her first name.
At 16, Alistair was sent to the mage academy at the capital, to further his studies and master his magic, with him further from the purview of his farther the next 12 years were some most of happiest he had since his mother's death, he applied himself to his studies, living at the academy he would often visit his sibling and stepmother, keep an active role in there lives but all good things, they must end.
The last day Alistair spent at the royal place was embroiled in an argument with his father other his future, this argument was the final straw that broke the camels back, that day he rode away from the place with only a horse and backpack, going to furthermost reaches of the empire to the edges of his farther influence
For the 5 years, he was missing from the court, roaming the world as the man Flynn Widogast. thought after a recurring dream of Rhisoka ablaze and his home destroyed, he returned home on the ball to celebrate his sister pregnancy.
Alistair at his core is a good man who wants nothing more than to entertain people and make them smile, this started with his half-sister, Lilith, who he would read stories to and perform sleight of hand tricks to entertain her while she was bed stricken at a young age, this would later extend to the common folk who he would entertain using magic to enhance to his stories while travelling.
While not a particularly violent man, Alistair can't stand bullies or those that abuse their power, first he confronts them with words, if that doesn't dissuade them he uses his magic to threaten them or persuade them otherwise.
Alistair possesses a deep shame of his scars due to the circumstances of how he got them. To him, they're a reminder of what happens when he loses his control and a reminder of the death of his mother so he hides them behind bandages.
