Vadrik, Astral Archmage, is a human wizard from Innistrad.


Vadrik of Nephalia is a widely respected astronomancer and a powerful mage with over 40 years of experience.[1] His research into the movements of the moon has proven to be a great boon for the people of Innistrad. Greater knowledge of the moon means greater protection against werewolves, and he is even known to have fought an Eldrazi. While his expertise lies in the stars, he is also an amateur artist. His hand-drawn star charts are commonly found in the packs of travelers across the plane. Although he prefers to draw his maps from the comfort of his home, a favor for his old friend Jenrik, calls him into the field.[2] He is friends with Arlinn Kord.[3] Vadrik is married to a man from Lambholt named Hailin.

Midnight Hunt[]

Vadrik went to Lambholt, after being called upon by the village elders. There, he met Rem Karolus and both of them were employed to find a farmer named Arinos who had disappeared three weeks back after arguing with the richest man in Lambholt, a pious man named Dein Salvasi, who was the one who hired Rem and who was the primary suspect in Arinos' disappearance. Malynn, one of the elders, believed Old Stickfingers to be involved.

Vadrik, Rem and Malynn proceeded to find Old Stickfingers and, after they found it, engaged it in battle, wounding it. The next morning, the three met the daughter of Arinos, Ariosa. She revealed that Salvasi had threatened to take Arinos' lands. They went to find Salvasi but found his house deserted and discovered that it was in fact Arinos who had summoned Old Stickfingers to kill Salvasi. After employing a ritual to contain Old Stickfingers, Vadrik and Rem parted on good terms with the wizard returning home to his husband and studies.[1]
