The Master of the Tower of Istar was the leader of the Wizards of High Sorcery at the Tower of High Sorcery at Istar. Traditionally only White Robes took this role at the tower at Istar. This changed with Leciane do Cirica. Before the Cataclysm, the master of the tower was also the Conclave’s envoy to the court of the Kingpriest.

Statues of the past masters were in the Statuary and on the landings surrounding the central stairway in the tower.

Past Masters of the Tower of Istar[]

  • Asanta (circa 2550 PC) was the Wizard that decided the location of the tower and led the spell to raise it.

Unknown number of Masters.

  • Marwort (circa 61 PC21 PC) was greatly disliked for usually siding with the Kingpriest over the Conclave.
  • Leciane do Cirica ( 21 PC19 PC) was chosen by the Conclave as a compromise between the orders after Marwort. She was the last Master of the tower before the Cataclysm.
  • Basalt Darkeye ( 422 AC) was never named as the Master of the newly restored tower (now called the Tower of the Blood Sea), but he was named as the Caretaker of the Tower.
