"Boys need discipline. Elsewise he’ll go as bad as the feckless Scanran slut that whelped him an’ left him on the midwife’s step."
—Alvik to Keladry of Mindelan, defending his position that Tobeis Boon needs to stay with him and work.

Alvik (pronounced AL-vihk) is a Tortallan commoner who lived in the 5th century HE. He lives in the village of Queensgrace located in the county of Princehold. He works as an innkeeper.


Early life

Little is known about Alvik's early life. At some point in Alvik's mid life he bought Tobe's indenture for one or two copper nobles.

Lady Knight

Alvik physically abused his servants often. Keladry of Mindelan caught him beating Tobeis Boon and bought the boy's indenture from him. Neal of Queenscove placed an enchantment on Alvik so that if he hit any of his servants he would feel the pain that he had inflicted upon them. It is assumed that Alvik stopped beating his servants thereafter.
