Tovrik the magician is a well-known performer, famous across the Western Lands for his light shows. With his goatee beard and diamond hat he is a somewhat comical figure and it is a matter of debate whether his shows are magic or merely clever tricks. Somehow, he has for many years avoided trouble and managed to accumulate a fair measure of coin along the way.
When he is not touring Tovrik can be found trying to restore the library of Caerddyn, the great mage of Albion’s court in the tower known as Elevered.
Tovrik is an old friend of Earl Cynric and Sir Marc and has visited Connlad many times over the years so that he is almost a familiar sight to Caleigh now.
Tovrik’s favourite animals are birds of prey, in particular eagles.
Height: 5′ 10″
Gideon is Tovrik’s best-known apprentice and is now habitually seen with him upon his light show tours. Every bit as clever as his master, he lacks Tovrik’s jovial streak and has had to work hard on his stage craft. Few seem to know how they came to be working together only that they are not related.
Gideon’s favourite animals are corvids.

Vaughn’s favourite animals are foxes.
