This elusive wizard is rumored to be long dead. After the giants fell, he was one of the major players during the change. He contended with other powers that be in order to claim a foothold upon the world. He was deceptive, but those who served him (often unwillingly) were well rewarded. He had an eye for power, and would often coax the strongest into his ranks. It kept him wary, however, so he always had methods of holding his claim.
There are rumors he may have made a return. He has been linked with the Benefactor, but only time will tell if they are rivals or one and the same.
