Gielle was a survivor of the Mage Wars, a mercenary and veteran of Urtho's armies. He had been a journeyman, without the ability to go beyond that level, until he was caught in the Mage Storms following the Cataclysm. The Storms Changed him to an Adept-level mage, a transition he handled with both confusion and grace.
It was Gielle's comment that he had seen a drained teleson during the Wars, when a senile Adept accidentally reversed the spell, that gave Snowstar the idea to dowse for the absence of magic instead of its presence.
