The Archmage wields magic like a master painter wields a brush, or a fencer wields a sword. Magic is second nature to him, and he uses it in almost every aspect of his life. His passion for travel has taken him all over the world, and because of this he has acquired the most powerful artifacts available in every region. His headdress his from the lost civilization of the desert. Worn by kings of that country for generations, it bestowed the bearer the power to influence others and grant knowledge of all those who wore the crown before. He was gifted his cloak from a grateful village on an isolated tropical island after saving it from destruction by a tsunami. As well as allowing him fly, it gives him the ability to speak any language -- which is very important for his travels. His most prized possession (closely followed by his staff made from a fallen meteor) is his dragon katana. Forged by a guardian dragon in the far east, its razor edge can never be dulled and the wielder can control a fire that envelops the sword on command.
