Arch-Magus Charles Black

Arch Mage & Headmaster of the Mage's Academy in Ricdom


Charles Black is a 6’1 human from Inselmaar. He wears the black and gold robes of an Arch Magus and walks with his gnarled staff.
He has brown hair and a short trimmed beard.


Charles Black is the current Arch Mage and Headmaster of the Mage’s Academy in Ricdom. He’s one of the few Necromancers still allowed to leave the Academies; this is probably because of his kind nature, his talent, and his proficiency in the arcane. He has shown exceptional power and skill as well as a friendly and welcoming attitude to those in need.

He has provided the party with Cups of Illusion that change their outward appearance to make them look like the living.

After the party’s encounter with Vecna in Maarbridge, he investigated what happened with the aid of Dahlia Dalma.

Black asked the party to accompany him to Zauber where the Archon Eight was gathering. He explained that he had been nominated for the open seat on the Archon Eight’s Council of Eight.
While there several attempts on his life were made against him but were thwarted by the party. In the end the open seat was filled by another nominee, Dahlia Dalma. He also explained that he and Dalma have been seeing eachother for a while.
