Holgast

Galadriel Ly'istrel's mentor in the village of Kassen

Description:
On the eastern edge of Kassen is a single tower, leaning slightly to the south, made of bricks and timber. This is the home of Holgast, the town’s local sage and mystic. Although Holgast is very knowledgeable, he is old and quite forgetful, meaning that the townsfolk (the mayor in particular) only consult him if the need is truly great. Holgast spends most of his days wandering about his tower, reading books, smoking his pipe, and taking naps. Once a week, he wanders into town to purchase supplies and provisions with his seemingly inexhaustible reserve of perfect golden coins, which he claims came from an immense hoard some years ago. Holgast makes for a frustrating mentor. His lessons are erratic and old fashioned. His apprentices are required to do all manner of chores for the privilege of learning from him, while he sleeps the day away and teaches very little. Those who have learned anything from him have done so by sneaking into the wizard’s spellbooks while he is napping.
Bio:

Holgast is the old wizard residing within the town of Kassen in the nation of the Eldeen Reaches. He lives in the leaning tower within the town. He is old and forgetful and enjoys smoking his pipe as well as grumbling to himself. As far as his teaching is concerned, he is not the greatest of instructors. He is significantly better at giving his students, meaning Galadriel Ly’istrel, chores to do while he naps. Fortunately, that allows Galadriel time to study the old wizards spellbook without interuption.
