GURPS Fantasy: The World of Trifourian
Lambert "Char" Charmont
Lambert, who goes by Char is a powerful Mage.
Char is on the short side, average build. He wears simple earth-tone robes and carries a seemingly ordinary walking stick.
Lambert Charmont was born in Stromsok to a Mage couple. As such he was brought up very strictly, with all his time and attention put towards his Magical studies.

However, by the time he was set to take on his duties, the University had become very bureaucratic, with the “Head Administrator” being little more than a figurehead, a position of Respect for the family which founded it.
Lambert earned his nickname, Char during his first lesson in the College of Fire. His magical ability was largely unknown at the time, it being a beginner’s class.

If food is present, Char will be eating it. If it is not to his liking, he will season it himself and adjust until he is satisfied.
After he married, Char sired two children, a son and a daughter. His daughter disappeared at age 16 while visiting an old teacher. She is believed to be dead. His son, Jack has shown potential to be a formidable Mage but always spends his time on other things.
