Oriam Trascalia (Pl/♂ human/W9/NG) is an older mage, a member of the Planewalker's Guild for many years. Skirting the edge of seniority, Trascalia feels himself too old to do much planewalking these days, and thus spends the majority of his time at the Guild's headquarters on the Infinite Staircase, helping out the new members with his own experience and worldliness. Most members of the Guild know him with at least passing familiarity. In the past, he has been involved with a mage by the name of Shavanistra, but this relationship ended abruptly some time past.
