Algrum Emberhand was a legendary adventurer, and arguably the greatest wizard in Erenoth's history. He was responsible for the disbandment of the Cabal, was involved in Falhast's secession, and established the Guild Arcanum. It is said that he had six to a dozen ioun stones orbiting him at one time.

The surname Emberhand is derived from his prevalent use of fire magic, as well as the presence of an elemental gem embedded in his palm.
