Velmal is the evil wizard of Gwildor and is the exact anagram of Malvel. He is the son of a medicine man. Velmal is also the main villain of two series, series five(The Shade of Death), and series six(The Land of Chaos). He has the power to poison enemies with his magic. Like Malvel in Avantia, he captured Gwildor's six beasts, and took them under his control. At one point, he captured Freya, Mistress of the Beasts in Gwildor, and turned her evil.
