" Yes…yes! I do believe this will work splendidly. I simply must show my colleagues this! "

Marcus Derek is a member of the Arcane Order of the Principalities of Glantri, they are also called “guildmages”. The academy is called the Order in casual conversation, or sometimes just “that college of wizardry.” It is both a school for fledgling spellcasters and a guild for those of advanced knowledge and power.

Marcus Derek was originally from the Principality of Aalban, but a long time apprentice and fan of both his prince General Jaggar von Drachenfels and the Great Magician Étienne d’Ambreville.

For a time Marcus Derek decided to be an adventurer and so he did with the group called Dusk and Dawn and he gained a moderate amount of fame both as a member of that group and as a mentor of spellcasters of other nations. He later returned to Glantri to follow the steps of his mentor Sir Arcanus(!) of the Arcane Order. He is now one of the Keepers of the Spellpool with a title of Master.

Marcus Derek is a widowed who fathered a son named Raizak Derek.

Raizak knows that his father, Sir Marcus Derek is a man who have raised in the ranks of nobility with hard work and discipline. He has a good standing in his original Principality of Aalban, and an excelent standing on the Principality of New Averoigne. He is one of the 10 men trusted with secrets and powers by the most powerfull magician in the Principalities of Glantri (and possibly the whole Known World) Prince Étienne d’Ambreville. He is one of the three second grade Grand Masters of the Arcane Order and a honor teacher on the Great School of Magic. In his youth he was an adventurer with the group Dusk and Dawn who has among their ranks the Queen of the Kingdom of Rockhome and the legendary mighty warrior Cimaguey Maguayo of the Atruaghin Clans. But he never talks about those years concentrating his time in burocracy and studies.
