Father to William and Tamara, Henry was just too much of a bore to be the legacy-bearer of Ludlow's gift.
The head of the family and propagator of the Swift family fortune, Henry handles the lion's share of the family banking business. He is a typical banker - wealthy, pompous and unaccommodating.
He's also prone to hypochondria, is extremely sensitive to noise as he has "poor nerves" and is constantly getting headaches. Still, he loves his children and is proud of their individuality.
Poor Henry Swift never had any interest in his father's magic, and Ludlow never intended to involve him. But fate has other plans for Henry, and they are not at all pleasant.
