Sir Ludlow Swift
William and Tamara's grandfather, and patriarch to the Swift family, Sir Ludlow was once a famed stage magician, an early precursor to the Thurstons and Blackstones to come.
He was an oddity in a grimly serious and studiously boring family. As such, he has always bonded with his eccentric grandchildren. There is a great deal more to Sir Ludlow Swift than meets the eye. His magic is not all parlour tricks and sleight of hand.
In truth, he is the mystical protector of Albion, a sorcerer of skill and great power. A hero in his campaign to protect his homeland, Ludlow has been involved with numerous battles against evil, and has so far managed to win. This has left him somewhat arrogant of his mortality.
But when his arrogance exceeds reality, Ludlow is caught off-guard. He chose his grandchildren to receive the legacy of his power and his duty, but did not prepare them for this destiny.
Fortunately, the loyal ghosts of Albion shall not forget his valour and strength and in his memory they shall aid the younger Swifts as best they can.
