The Price of Progress
A famous Arch-mage of Roke, was the youngest wizard to reach that state. He was previously the Master Summoner of Roke. He was known to have a face “carved out of dark stone” and carried a staff of bone white wood. He was killed by a gebbeth (an undead spector) while Irian, the Dragonfly, the first “woman of power” (the first female trained wizard) was trying to destroy it.
Thorion’s staff was broke in two, where one half grew into a tree on Roke Knoll.
