U is for Umbra Sprite
Some of you out there may not know who this guy is… his name is the Umbra Sprite and he was the mysterious enchanter and arch-enemy of Kevin Matchstick (see "K") from the great Mage comic book. The Umbra Sprite, whose face was always seen in shadow (sort of like The Octopus, see "O"), was the owner of the Styx Casino and father of the five hideous Grackleflint brothers, Emil, Lazlo, Stanis, Piet and Radu. He also had a growing dependancy on the leaves of a magical plant that he would smoke in order to "focus his powers". By far the coolest pot-smoking, no-faced bad guy I’ve ever seen.
