Embrose Lu
Race Human
Birthplace Arcavios
Lifetime Mending Era

Dean Embrose Lu is a human warlock teacher at the Silverquill College of Strixhaven University on Arcavios.


Dean Embrose of Silverquill is a master poet whose ink magic is dominating and without mercy. Quick with a cutting remark, Dean Embrose has seen many mage-students scrubs out of Strixhaven and has nothing good to say about those who can't hack it.

A cynic, Embrose believes that most people are in it for themselves. He demands his students learn how to use language-based magic to "get what they deserve." While he often fights with Dean Shaile, he holds a deep (begrudging) respect for the owlin.[1]

He is the father of Killian Lu, and is even stricter with him than he is with other students.
