Deverick Abraxas (Pr/♂ half-elf/Dim20/LN) is the founder of the thaumaturgical school of Dimensionalism, within the last century. An extremely open-minded individual, and eager to encourage the spread of knowledge in contrast to the many near-xenophobic mages that fill the Prime, Abraxas was known to take many apprentices and students, contributing to the spread of Dimensionalism. He was known to be personally quite attuned to the Demiplane of Shadow, training as a shadow mage in his youth before founding his own school.
Because of his influence, many students of Abraxas, as well as their own students, refer to themselves as "Abraxites" rather than the traditional Dimensionalist term.
