Though wary of the allure of power, he now wanted to delve into the magical arts in order to prepare himself for whatever confrontations awaited him. At least that's what he told himself. He had become bored with the books he had received from Arhyvhynne. In the past, they had proved too rudimentary to help him save Khyrhyelle or adequately defend against the SoulSlayer Ahrokh.
