Once Gwydion was the court wizard of duke Pryden Daggerford but at 1370 DR the court magician was Bronwyn Daggerford in all save the name. Gwydion so was free to did his studies in order to find a mean to live more. He had a magic book that show how achieve Lichdom but he not like much this system. Instead he had sent many adventuring parties in search of a good potion of longevity but with no results for now.
Gwydion was a very indecisive individual, pondering months before coming to an easily swayed conclusion.
