Bear in mind I should not be Council Leader at all given I inherited the post because Rodish was murdered. Having said that the position of Council Leader carries a great deal of influence in and out of the Palace and I relish trying to use that influence to help people. I am particularly proud of the way my wish to improve our educational facilities has finally got through and that each school, college and university of magic receives a specified amount of money to use on books and to improve library facilities year on year. I believe Earth should have a similar policy. Libraries are magical places whatever the dimension one happens to find oneself living in.
What part of your role do you dislike most?
The interminable meetings! I am all for meetings to work out what must be done but then one must get on and do the work rather than have another meeting to discuss progress. There has to be progress to make that second meeting worthwhile and so often this is not the case. This is one area of Council business I would like to reform - to only have meetings that are necessary and to define that by setting out what each meeting is meant to achieve.
How much magic do you use in your role?
Very little in Council. Outside of Council I have used plenty of magic when trying to fight the overthrow of the Queen, which mercifully was brief. My role in Council is that of administrator and while magic can speed up paperwork I am distrustful of it. Magic to me is meant for fighting against the evil use of magic and so on.
