About Golthwur Strath
Golthwur fancies himself a master of the arcane and wishes others to know it. He believes that all problems are best solved through the use of magic and has little patience for those who wish to address matters by more mundane means.
Golthwur is an elderly, bearded man dressed almost always in traditional wizard’s robe and pointy hat.

(8/day)Hand of the Apprentice (Su): You cause your melee weapon to fly from your grasp and strike a foe before instantly returning to you. As a standard action, you can make a single attack using a melee weapon at a range of 30 feet. This attack is treated as a ranged attack with a thrown weapon, except that you add your Intelligence modifier on the attack roll instead of your Dexterity modifier (damage still relies on Strength). This ability cannot be used to perform a combat maneuver. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Intelligence modifier.
Arcane Bond - signet ring
A bonded object can be used once per day to cast any one spell that the wizard has in his spellbook and is capable of casting, even if the spell is not prepared. This spell is treated like any other spell cast by the wizard, including casting time, duration, and other effects dependent on the wizard’s level. This spell cannot be modified by metamagic feats or other abilities. The bonded object cannot be used to cast spells from the wizard’s opposition schools of which Golthwur has none.

Golthwur is an old grump who has little respect or time for any matters that he deems "mundane", i.e., not involving the study or application of magic. He is a non-repentant coward in combat, preferring to rely on magic to distract or avoid himself getting hit. However, should he feel he is left with no alternative (or if he thinks he can do so with little likelihood of retaliation) he will engage in combat as follows:
Golthwur first cases mage armor. He then casts ghost sound (Will save DC 16) to simulate the sound of an approaching dragon or other predator.
Order of Actions in Subsequent Rounds (once combat begins)
If within melee, Golthwur takes every effort to avoid getting hit, including a step of five feet, and casts daze (Will save DC 16) on the nearest humanoid opponent that does not threaten him.
If at range, Golthwur strikes with his occasionally flying staff.
In social situations, Golthwur usually says something condescending or inappropriate, huffs when not permitted to speak, then sulks in a corner. He will, however, interject with an appropriate Knowledge check if he possesses the proper skill and thinks that it may elicit some awe or admiration from others present.
