An orphan raised by the Order of the Holy Flame, Frederick has devoted his life to serving the church. He believes that his magical ability is a divine gift that is meant to allow him to battle the forces of darkness.
Hearing tales of Frostgrave and the evils emerging as it thaws, he has gathered a following from the faithful and set off to battle against evil. He seeks to prevent less scrupulous wizards from claiming the artifacts found in the ruins and battle against the dark denizens of the city’s ruins.
Frederick has focused on learning spells to protect and aid other faithful from the dangers of the world. He can enchant weapons, illuminate targets, heal wounds, and create magical shields. When facing magical opposition, he can dispel magic and reveal invisible creatures. When enemies get close to him, he can unleash the burning heat of the Holy Flame to attack. Finally, he knows how to write scrolls so that he can more reliably cast his spells in dangerous situations.

Marona, a junior member of the Order of the Holy Flame, has been tasked with serving Frederick and learning from him. In battle, she focuses on protecting the members of the warband with Heal and Shield.
Frederick is joined by a Knight of the Holy Flame and a band of faithful soldiers. A crossbowman provides a powerful ranged attack while two infantrymen and four thugs are ready to face their enemies in hand-to-hand combat.

When Frederick casts Transcendence, he creates a thaumaturgic seal that locks away the dangers of Frostgrave.
Wednesday Wizards is a series of posts that I’m planning to write for the next few months. Each entry will present a wizard for Frostgrave Second Edition with background, spell selection, soldiers, and their goal in exploring the city. These wizards and warbands could be used as-is to start a new campaign or serve as inspiration as you build your own wizard.
