The Wizards of Válka stand apart from those they consider lesser in might and knowledge. They seek to understand the deep secrets of magic and will plumb great depths of arcane learning, whatever the cost.

Erstis. The most mysterious of all the magic users. Whose name has been spoken through all the major events of the last millennia. He is Grand Master of the Ancient Order of Elder Sorcery and keeper of the true secrets of wizardry. However Erstis isn’t as cruel and greedy as some of his wizarding kin, and openly disagrees with the councils schemes and machinations. And yet he is a wizard and must side with them first amongst all the lesser creatures. Thus his mighty spells scorch the battlefield, his quiet voice mumbling of past days as blood and fire paints the ground before his wizened feet.
The Battle Mage lives for conflict. Uninterested in the esoteria of scholarly wizardry, he has dedicated his study to the arts of war. His spells are brutal, his touch is death. When he had a name it was irrelevant, as meaningless as the family he left behind. All his focus is on destruction.
Famina Black, young and ambitious, they were apprentice to the great and ancient Erstis until their constant search for secret arcane wisdom pushed them in to the world, alone on a quest for hidden knowledge. They still have much to learn, much to do, but their power grows daily.
Okafina Star was a glamorous and popular member of the court of the Queen of Hearts until her meddling in the affairs of the noble ended her days with the Queen. She was exiled and left for dead. But out there in the wilderness, the latent mystic powers of the Star family rose within her and she willed herself to live. Now she has reinvented herself as a powerful mage, built a glorious tower of stone and set herself in secret against the knightly realms.
Amongst wizard-kind, Rizzo the Wiz is considered a bit of a liability. In a world of gunpowder he might have been referred to as a “loose canon”. Quick to anger, fast to offence, first to flee. He can throw a fireball with tremendous force, but does not like getting blood on his hand stitched silken robe. He mostly plays at court life in the halls of the Queen of Love, unofficial and unvoiced ambassador from the Order or Sorcery. As long as he keeps his opinions to himself....
