Shadows over Tyner
A Conniving Butler
Mr. Slackbladder is the head butler at the Mage’s Academy in Brightwater. He is a scheming, rat-faced man. He accepted Baldrick as his dogsbody when the entire Baldrick family pressured him to do so. When planning his plans to gain influence a the Academy, he consulted Baldrick and involved him in the schemes, but something always went wrong, leaving him where he was. Mr. Slackbladder doesn’t really care about Baldrick, and only sees him as a pawn, and so does not care much when Baldrick is cast out of the Academy.
