Samuel Freuhoff was a Vendigrothian doctor. He invented an anti-mage device, particularly for Arronax. His invention was funded by the Vendigrothian government the day after Arronax threatened governor Nikolai.
He boasted that their first line of defense was completed as he held up his device, dubbed Freuhoff’s Device by the press. He said that any mage would think twice before assaulting a civilization that has the capability of wrenching the very life force from his body, with no hope of magkical resurrection possible. Plans to commence the constructions of more devices, as well as several other types of anti-mages devices, were in progress, but only one of them survived.
