The Magic Thief Cast of Characters
Street-thief turned mage
A talented thief… until he picked the wrong pocket! After attempting to rob the wizard Nevery of his locus magicalicus – what mages on Lore call a focus stone – Conn became his apprentice and began learning the ways of a wizard. Quick of wits and deft of hand, Conn’s past serves him well as he learns the ways of magic!
Wizard to the Duchess, Chaorrupted
Corrupt and Chaorrupted, the wizard Pettivox is not afraid to get his hands – or his locus magicalicus – dirty if it will bring him power. Drakath dupes him into kidnapping many of the most powerful mages on Lore in order to taint ALL magic with Chaos!
Conn’s friend, Duchess’ daughter
Smart, sassy, fiercely loyal and independent, Rowan is NOT going to sit and sew while dangers threaten her home and friends. A student at Wellmet’s Academy of Magic, she’s ready to use the resources at her disposal to help her friend Conn save the world!
Conn’s friend, servant to his teacher
More bodyguard than street-brawler, Benet is the servant of Conn’s teacher, Nevery. He knows his way around Wellmet and prefers baking biscuits to breaking heads. He’ll help you navigate the town when you first arrive… IF you don’t threaten those he protects.
Duchess of Wellmet, Rowan’s mother
Guardian of all who dwell in Wellment, Duchess Willa is strong and determined to safeguard her lands. She’s badly served by her court wizard, Pettivox, who cares more about power than protection. She is ready to help those who wish to keep her people and home safe from harm.
