Although his grandmother was one of them, Dayven prayed that it was not hereditary.  After all, his cousin Soren had failed the test already.  Dayven was sure he would fail as well.  But on his fourteenth birthday, the day the test was given, Dayven learned the horrible truth.  He was indeed a wizard.  The wizards are despised by the Tharn but they are allowed to live among them and people did not hesitate to call upon the wizards for healing.  But Dayven had another destiny in mind.  He was to become a Guardian along with Soren.  If he were a wizard, that would never happen.  But the Lord has a proposition for Dayven.  Pretend to join the wizards and spy on them.  Find out all he can about them and report back.  When he has done that, he can then become a Guardian.  But little did they know that Dayven is to be apprenticed to Reddick who will bring Dayven on a journey to the land of the Cenzar -- the sworn enemy of the Tharn.
