Lifetime Mending Era

Dean Plargg is an orc shaman teacher at the Lorehold College of Strixhaven University on Arcavios.


Plargg is a gruff, blind orc who specializes in military history. Known as a demanding teacher, students seek him out anyway for his perfect recall of hundreds of historical stories and for his lessons in wielding potent scroll magic. He invented "heat lettering," a form of magical parchment embossing that provides a tactile way to read texts.

Plargg believes that history is full of unpredictable, war-filled chaos and that his students need to be ready for anything. He teaches that there are no rewards without risk, and his excursions always end with multiple trips to the nurse's office. He pays little attention to Dean Augusta's work, dismissing her attempts to find order in the chaos as a foolhardy waste of time.[1]
