Help me find my first flash, please!

Hi everyone!

I would like to get into flash photography, having never done it before. Please help me find the right flash for me!

I am envisioning mainly two use cases:

a) bounce flash for indoor portraits

b) wildlife via flash extender with subject 10-15m away from me

This means that the flash I'm looking for has to have the following characteristics:

1) be compatible with my OMD EM-10 II

2) tilt back so that I can hit the ceiling or wall behind me

3) be compatible with flash extenders (I think MagMod and Better Beamer are the most common?)

Further on my wishlist are:

4) TTL

5) compact

6) budget friendly

7) take color gels (optional)

8) compatible with other camera systems (optional)

Am I asking too much?
