Jed was too old to be accepted into the Aidman Academy at 42, but his gifts with Illusion were more than enough for Tavian Aidman to begin teaching him. He had taught himself a few cantrips, but with Tavian's instruction he began crafting more incredible illusion, shielding himself from others eyes and other wonders. He also showed a spark for Astrology and Divination. Within 4 years he has become and instructor, teaching at Redkeep 4 weeks a year as well as his duties in West End. Finally in 40 AF, Tavian selected Jed as his representative on the Council of the West. His down to earth thinking and incredible ideas have helped him to thrive in the council.
