Obadiah Sandelspout

Description:

Obadiah Sandelspout is a charming old man, with bright twinkling blue eyes, a long bushy white beard that reaches all the way down to his belt. At first glance he appears friendly with his blue wizards robe with golden stars woven into the fabric, and a peculiar looking hat upon his head. Obadiah is moderately tall, but age and years of pouring over various tomes and parchments has not been kind to his posture and he has permanent slouch. Obadiah is as frail for his age as you would expect, but his mind is as keen as it ever was, though that may not be immediately apparent. Fortunately, his frailty has not affected his general health and hand eye coordination.

Obadiah’s youth, many years ago, was spent traveling and training under as many Master Wizards as he could find, he craved knowledge and wanted to have a vast repertoire of magic available to him, to cover any situation that could come up. After many years of travel and adventure, Obadiah settled in a community as an adviser for a minor Lord and became tutor in the wizarding arts for their youngest son. Obadiah stayed with the Arroway family for many years until his young pupil was tired of reading about adventures in books and wanting to experience them on his own. With the eldest sons of the Arroway family feeling that Obadiah is too old to continue being an adviser, they released him of his service but offered him a permanent home within the castles ground. Obadiah refused, feeling there is quite a bit more fight left in his bones and ventured once more into the world, for one final adventure.

Etc…: Obadiah’s early years with his parents were spent mostly on the road. Travelling from place to place. His father, Jebidiah, was a mage of little consequence and even littler substance. Earning money for the family by performing sleight of hand and other trickery with the aid of real magic. Obadiah’s mother, Sarah Jean, was a modestly talented seamstress who supplemented the family income by creating dazzling dresses and other garments to sell to Nobility. She also participated in the act by performing fortune telling and mind reading tricks. It is still unknown whether she possessed any actually telepathic ability. Obadiah was brought up on the importance of learning and studying, which came quite naturally to him.

Once his magical abilities surfaced, Obadiah was obligated to take part in the acts but quickly became disenchanted with the trivialness of his fathers magic; Obadiah demanded more from his new found power. Once having reached the age of 16 Obadiah was able to perform all of his fathers tricks with ease, as well as having invented a few of his own. The “showbiz” life had finally run its course, and after a heated argument involving a few long and complicated, though highly descriptive choice words, set off on his own to further his craft.

Many years later, after Obadiah had learned a great many thing in the way of magic, he received word that his parents had fallen ill. Travelling a great distance to a small community in the lands of the Arroway family, Obadiah reunited with his now elderly parents. Within the next year, Jebidiah passed away due to respiratory illness, the old man would still continue his act in the local tavern, even after all the years and his faithful audience had figured out every last trick. The following year Sarah-Jean followed Jebidiah into eternal rest, finishing one final garment before falling asleep for the last time. A set of wizarding robes, Blue with Golden Stars.

After the death of his mother, Obadiah was unsure of what to do next. There were not many wizards of the land who knew more of magic than he did, and those that did were usually not to keen on sharing their secrets. Deciding that to honor his parents he should perform one final show, one in which this community has never seen. Donning his new wizarding robes he gathered the entire community into the town square. With everyone watching in awe Obadiah unleashed the greatest spectacle of magic anyone had ever seen topped off with Obadiah transforming himself into a beautiful Silver Dragon and flying away.

Later that evening, when everything had settled down., Obadiah returned to his parents home and began to pack his belongings. Lost in his own thoughts he was startled by a knock on his door. It would appear that the local lords young son, Leokas, saw the spectacle and had decided then and there that he wished to become a wizard. The lord offered Obadiah room and board if he would become tutor for all his sons, and perhaps teach Leokas in the magical arts. Obadiah accepted the position and spent many years with the family…
