A familiar is a magical creature which serves as a sort of servant to an accomplished wizard.
The power of the Familiar seems to be in direct proportion to the power of the Wizard to whom it is a companion to. It is known that the Familiar can exist when the Wizard is unconscious, and is able to continue spells that the Wizard had cast. (For example: Fenrus able to keep Erasmus' house afloat in QfG5.)
Notable familiars include:
- Fenrus, familiar of Erasmus (or is that the other way around?)
- Damiano, familiar of Zara
- Archimedes, a familiar of Merlin.
Behind the scenesEdit
In some early development ideas for QFG they had hoped to implement familiar summoning for the Wizard/Magic User character.
