The Ferdiad Cycle
Hagen mac Blàr
An old sage and magic user
Hagen is a former apprentice of a wizard but never was very gifted in the art of magic beyond a few cantrips. When the old master died, Hagen knew little else of life than dusting books and sweeping floors and decided to stay, earning his living as a tutor for the children of local nobility.
Hagen is a bitter old man who hasn’t realised his own lack of importance. Despite his callous nature his collection of old tomes and years of study of the classics are a rare prize.
