The wise and enigmatic mage pops up in chapter 2, generally armed with explosive revelations of Hidden Destiny, Prophecy and Big Brooding Evils.
So, pretend you're a stableboy that just learned you have a Magical Destiny. You're about to hike off on your journey to face the big bad, so which wizard are you taking with you?
A few rules:
- Try to be specific - so for legends and classics (e.g. Merlin), try to tie them down to one book or series.
- The definition of 'fantasy' is pretty broad. As is 'wizard'. More argument, less rules.
- They have to be a good guy - or, at the very least - on the same side. This is for the Companion, not the Dark. So Voldemort is out, but Snape is ok (please don't turn this into an argument about Harry Potter).
- Per usual, please wait 5 places before picking again.
