- — The Magician's Apprentice
|Book Origin||The Magician's Apprentice|
Lord Karvelan of Drayn is a wealthy Kyralian landowner, and head of the Drayn household. His wife passed away because Karvelan wouldn't let her see a healer and wouldn't pay for any cures for her. Together they have two sons, Velan and Jayan.
Karvelan is very judgemental and doesn't like the Circle of Friends as he believes they are against the city. He also believes that Dakon shouldn't have taken on Tessia as an apprentice as Jayan hadn't completed his training yet.
