Mogamett is taking me for a ride. On one hand he is obviously compassionate towards magicians, yet his school is involved in black ruhk research and manufacturing of dark metal vessels. He isn't evil, just a man willing to do what is necessary based on his world view, and he is stuck between a rock and hard place with the 2 super powers moving in on his house.
Titus will most likely die but he should not worry, Marga has Aladdin and that white haired guy.
The Sinbad chronicles are fantastic, can't wait to read them.
