The Wizard is mysterious wizard whom Connor met on his journey to save Daventry. Connor refers to him as 'sir wizard' or 'good wizard'.
Foreseeing the coming cataclysm he prepared a spell to save himself. His prepared spell protected him, but only half so, for he had only partially turned to stone by the released magic of the cataclysm. He was a very good wizard, and knew the vile tempest was approaching and swiftly conjured a countering spell, to shield himself from the effects of the oncoming cataclysm, but it wasn't enough. He was left with a lower half stone, and his upper half still in flesh.
He told Connor that it was his destiny to repair the Mask of Eternity and defeat the evil being that had taken over the Realm of the Sun, and taken up quarters in the mask's sanctum sanctum. He handed him a magic map so that he could keep track of his locations, and use it to travel between lands once he discovered the teleportation location for each land.
When he learned that Connor had ripped a page from his spell book, he explained that the page contained a spell of revelation.
After Connor discovered the large silver bell hidden in an illusory chest in his home, he told him to put it fit a structure on his island.
Later the wizard helped him defeat the Shadow Bane of the Dimension of Death by casting the Magical Illumination Spell and forming the Magical Ring of Illumination. Connor thanked him for all his immeasurable help, and hoped they could meet again in better times.
He would also give advice on the Unicorn Horn pointing out that maybe a unicorn had lost its horn
Behind the scenesEdit
This character is referred to as the 'Wizard' in the credits. The Sorcerer has also been known as the wizard but is likely not the same individual. An interaction article from just before the games release describes him as the 'wizard of Daventry'.
There had been early discussions of Wizard possibly being Crispin from KQ5, but they decided not to make a point of it. Obviously they changed ideas, as Cedric was replaced with Dante.
From the design document this character was original going to be the 'Island King", inspired by the Fisher King from arthurian legends, which explains his connection to the Lady of the Lake.
In debug mode this character is listed as "Wizard Wizard", as if Wizard is his name..
