Eric the Wizard is really really old and really grumpy! He prefers to while away his time sitting quietly reading or drinking his favorite nettle tea. “Not too weak and not too strong” he asks anyone who is brewing up. He doesn’t like to socialize much with the other Wizards, but they often go to him to ask his opinion, especially when it involves anything mechanical. Now a lot of Wizards can fix things quite easily – especially if they have a decent wand, but with Eric guiding them, they have found it is actually very satisfying fixing things or making things themselves. A pixie once found an old motorbike just abandoned at the side of the road and he pushed it all the way back to Grazzlethorne. The Wizards thought it would be fun to try to get it working and after consulting with Eric, they did just that! When they want a little extra fun, they will start it up and take it in turns to ride around. What a clever Wizard Eric is.
