Garok Al-Mat, from Ultima VII
Three years prior to the Avatar's arrival in Trinsic, Garok was sought out by the Britannian Tax Council due to discrepancies in his reported income. Having lost his business and growing paranoid in the wake of the ethereal disturbance, the apothecary sought a means to silence the voice sounding in his head and the warped magic that drove him to madness, and scried that the answer to his problems lay in one of Britannia's dungeons. Eventually, he came to Despise, where he became hopelessly lost in his addled state of consciousness.
Should the Avatar encounter Garok, the mage would fear the champion to be a BTC enforcer and would react poorly if the hero told him they were from the Council. Should the Avatar allay his fears to this end, however, they could direct him toward the dungeon's exit, allowing the magician to magically transport himself homeward. Grateful for the assistance, Garok would offer the Avatar his remaining reagents on hand and would promise a discount on further goods should they ever visit him in his mountain home.
- Garok's dialogue, like all mages, will alter if he is spoken to after the cleansing of the ether. Should the Avatar know the true location of the Tetrahedron Generator, they may also tell the mage that he is exploring in the wrong dungeon.
- Garok Al-Mat is mentioned in Alagner's Book of Marvelous and Astonishing Things as having been experimenting with silver serpent venom as a divinatory reagent in conjunction with spider silk and the pollen of giant bees, although his research was in all likelihood lost after the ethereal madness overtook him.
