Wizard Edvin is a wizard who helped repair the Mage Training Arena during his apprenticeship to Wizard Shug.[1][2] He was responsible for shaping the rune guardians' bodies using a specially created tool.[3]

He runs magical experiments, often using test subjects as guinea pigs, sometimes literally as in the case of Apprentice Clerval.[4] His latest experiment involves using portal magic, though he's lost at least one test subject to it.[5] Originally he had the portal maze filled with "surprises" like dangerous creatures and lava, but has gradually removed them to make the challenge purely mental.[6] He is on the verge of abandoning his experiment and moving on.[7]

He has a rivalry with Wizard Dougal. Apparently, he keeps trying to steal Dougal's ideas.[8]
