"Wally, a powerful magician, once performed spells that could destroy entire cities. However, due to Wally's arrogance with these powers, half of his strength was sealed away by the Great Council. Wally was further sentenced to travel the land and perform good deeds to fuel the magical jewel embedded into his staff.
Teased by young magicians of one town, Wally made the brash decision of attempting to perform a forbidden dark spell to prove his strength to the hecklers. Wally only made it half way through the incantation before a member of the Great Council stopped him. For his actions, Wally would be tried by the Council an almost assuredly punished for them. When asked his excuse for engaging in forbidden magic, Wally defensively lied that he was merely trying to banish a creature that another magician had summoned as a spectacle. The council, angered by his arrogance, decided upon a punishment that would teach Wally some much-needed humility.
In the months afterwards, Wally continued to travel the land. once again performing small good deeds. However, Wally found that no matter how many good deeds he performed, the jewel on the staff would not change. While resting in a small village one day, an injured bear broke through the wall of his hut. holding a small, unconscious bird and calling for help. Wally, though confused, healed the peculiar pair, hoping to fill the jewel. After they had recovered, the two apologized for the intrusion and told Wally that they would be on their way. Wally, concerned for the health of the two creatures, decided to follow them in case they got themselves into even worse trouble. Unbeknownst to him, the jewel in his staff glimmered with a small twinkle as they set out on a new journey."
