Can the Wizard

Can is a wizard colleague of Usidore's. His full name is very long, but part of it is:

Caneficent Dewspring, Master of Space and Time, Headmaster of the Jizzleknob Preparatory School for Young Wizards; the Elves did know me Cannigan the Everliving, the Elves do know me as Candle Dewspice, the Elves will know me as Candy Crowley; the Dwarves did know me as Canned Heat, the Dwarves do know me as Canticle Lebowitz, and the Dwarves will know me as Canban Scrummaster…

Can is a yellow wizard, and as such is a master of space and time. Usidore and Can often work together to defeat imp lords, dark elves, and other threats. He cast the anti-goblin enchantment on The Vermilion Minotaur for Otok, as he is unfortunately racist against goblins.

Can is married, but no one seems to know to whom.

Can the Wizard is played by Arnie Niekamp.

Time Powers

Can's main power is that he will live until the end of time, and when the world is created anew again, he will continue living. He has been through several loops of existence, and because of this has vague memories of events that will occur. However, because the entirety of creation is so vast, he cannot clearly remember events that are not sufficiently dramatic, leading him to half-remember or incorrectly remember many things. In fact, he does not even know how old he is, because he cannot remember coming into existence. It should be noted that even though his life span seems to be indefinite, he is not immortal and can be killed.

Each successive loop, however, means there will be another Can in the timeline. It is unclear if this Can is added to each timeline, or if each iteration exists across each timeline, but he notes that history always turns out the same way. Regardless, if he fails to die by a certain point, it will become necessary to kill him before the universe is populated by too many Cans. Can has a vague knowledge that he one day must die to save Foon, but is uncertain if it will be for this reason or not.

Can will also delegate tasks to his selves that are more suited to them; for example, Usidore will usually quest with a younger Can instead of an older one. Because it is unclear just how long Can will live or has lived, the realm of possibilities of his potential seem almost limitless. For example, a future version of him may in fact be the Dark Lord.

Schooling

Can is the headmaster of the Jizzleknob Preparatory School for Young Wizards, that some wizards attend before going to the Great Halls of Terr'akkas. He notably was in charge during the tragic death of Frizznap Tingle, thanks to a prophecy about him defeating the Dark Lord.

Despite being a headmaster, he doesn't love teaching, doesn't like children, or the bureaucracy of academia. In addition to teaching at Jizzleknob, Can has studied at the Great Halls of Terr'akkas many times.

Notes

  • He enjoys drinking water with a little banana in it.
  • Just prior to a Offices and Bosses game, the Singing Sword stabbed Can outside The Vermilion Minotaur. It is not known if he survived the attack, but since Usidore has demonstrated that wizards cannot be killed by stabbing, he is likely to be fine.
