Dean Kianne is a elf druid teacher at the Quandrix College of Strixhaven University on Arcavios.


Brilliant and eccentric, Kianne is one of the preeminent mana scholars of the plane. She has visited and studied bizarre mana phenomena around Arcavios, from snarls and star arches to nameless ancient shrines. She loves to share her wild mana theories with anyone who will listen.

Kianne believes in using mathematics to better understand the physical nature of reality. She places an emphasis on practical magic that improves daily life through applied calculations. She rolls her eyes at Dean Imbraham's theories, dismissing him as living in an imaginary world.[1]
