Now petrified and forever entombed in his glass and wooden cabinet,Victos XIV was a sorcerer and necromancer, jester and councillor to the King of Valdynia. A strange and enigmatic character who had the ability to levitate and disappear at will. Purported to have eleven wives and seventy three children, a number of whom disappeared under unusual circumstances. A sinister character, he met his demise when the tribal chieftain of the nearby island of Magoobo challenged him to a contest of magical dexterity. Unfortunately, he had met his match and was unceremoniously shrunk to the size of a small monkey. He never recovered from the indignity and on the event of his death, caused by the accidental inhalation of a pomegranate pip, was transported back to the kingdom whence he came. He is now in the possession of a descendant of his first wife Briscilla. The figure has an unnerving presence and on occasion a magnifying lens has been known to be found in a different place within the cabinet. It is said that if viewed through a convex mirror, on the eve of the equinox, the figure has been seen to grimace.
