Known by his last name, Faust is an instructor in arcane magic. He is a Steadmount family friend, and was largely responsible for teaching Tegan to manipulate and control the weave.
Before he left Hillvon, Faust revealed a secret to Tegan. Steadmount archmages all undertake a pilgrimage to a lost ancient temple hidden in a centuries old forest, where they pledge secret allegiance to an ancient creature/weapon called Ryloirth. In exchange for the pledge, they gain powerful abilities that allow them to live up to the lofty expectations they have inherited. Supposedly there is also a magical fountain where even more power can be unlocked, but its whereabouts are long forgotten.
