The Wandering Inn Wiki

Grimalkin Duveig, also known as Grimalkin the Fist, is a Drake who lives in Pallass, and the famed master of his own personal magic school, Physical Magic. He holds the position of Magic-Captain in his city.


He is a huge, muscle-bound Drake[1] with green scales[2] that wears tight-fitting clothing.[1]


Grimalkin is like a "drill-Sergeant on steroids" who also happens to have an obsession with the physical body. He is extremely demanding of his students and typically lacks social grace, but also serves to push them to their limits. He does occasionally tone down his brash nature to encourage his students. Grimalkin is also an intellectual, often taking notes when he witnesses an unusual magical phenomenon. Notably, he was able to figure out that Erin was from another world, albeit bribing Troy and Leon to spill the beans.


Grimalkin is considered the most powerful [Mage] in Pallass, as such, other Walled Cities note that the loss of Grimalkin would be devastating for Pallass. Grimalkin's power comes from practical expertise as much as levels and skills. Having fought in six wars, he looks down on [Mages] without combat experience. He notes Wistram graduates as typically lacking this practical expertise, although Grimalkin does admits Wistram is still a superior school of magic compared to the institution at Fissival where he learned.

Grimalkin holds an unknown formal rank in the military of Pallass and he confers with Chaldion and the [Generals] of Pallass regularly. It is implied that he has struck some form of deal with the government of Pallass to stay with the city in return for other benefits.

Grimalkin owns at least one mansion within the walls of Pallass which doubles as a location to train his students. He also regularly consults on the training of Pallass's elite military units. Grimalkin's graduated students qualify for a minimum rank of [Captain] in Pallass's military. He can also certify adventuring teams as Gold-rank, and recommends a student as Silver-rank and Gold-rank each every year.
