Everett Callow holds the unfortunate distinction as the last Overseer in Majeria. He held the lofty position withing Mage society for some 50 years. He made great strides in demystifying to his public partners who Mages really were. He was loved by most Majerians and truly hated by none.
Hated by none save the Mages responsible for orchestrating The Mage Rebellion. Robitai, The Grand Betrayer called for Callow’s assassination at the onset of the Rebellion. It was an integral part of the operation. Callow could serve as a unifying force among doubtful Mages unwilling to participate. His death would also spread fear among the people; his murder was purposefully blamed on the Purists.
