For that, you ought to ask the Queen, given she was the one who appointed me. My family has no bearing on my work. What matters now is that I carry out the Chief Wizard's role with integrity and honour. If I can do that, I will have bettered my immediate predecessor for one thing. For another, I'm less likely to be blasted away by those outraged by my misuse of magic, because there won't be any!
Yes, it always pays to keep an eye on Eileen, even when she's another world away.
Yes. Eileen is formidable regardless of what world she's on. I must admit I feel pity for that husband of hers. I find it hard to believe she can soften. Still if he did achieve that, it confirms my pet theory that magic is not the most powerful force in the universe.
What do you want to achieve in your first year as Chief Wizard?
To know the Kingdom as a whole is reassured because they can see I'm not misusing magic. To then discipline the sprite communities effectively if they think that first point makes me a soft touch. Some idiot is bound to. That same idiot will quickly find out the hard way just how wrong they are. To develop spells which will help restore those areas of the realm that were devastated by too much magic going through them. It would be nice to rectify some of the more rotten areas of our history and use of magic.
