In The Beginning...
Oho the Mad
Crazy red haired mage from the Mage Dual
Glug beat Oho the Mad in a mage dual. Barely. It resorted to fist fighting by the end.
He used illusions, lighting bolts, and blinded Glug last time you faced him.
Vinolo had offered you a job to steal a spell from him before the next mage dual, the offer may or may not still be standing.
