    Ever since entering the Colosseum of Valor in Planes of Prophecy, I've been seeing an Erudite named Dr. Arcana. He seems to be tasked with public quests and missions. I see him walking around the elemental planes in the Chaos Descending expansion, and apparently he's in charge of missions in Luclin as well.

    Is there any backstory to him? He must be pretty important if he keeps showing up over the last three expansions.

    Well his outfit hearkens back to Withered Lands and his facial structure looks like an erudite. Come to think of it, I don't remember any erudites in DoV areas like Great Divide, WL and Cobalt Scar. Maybe he's wearing a humanoid illusion?

    Just guessing.

    The mage spot in the Avengers raid team was already taken up by Dr. Strange and the Red Witch, so here he is.

    Dr. Arcana was in the order of the Darkwater circle that is why he is an erudite, he was then sent on a mission to gather intelligence on otherworldly beings appearing over norrath, that is why you see him in PoP and BoL. He Discovered a way to temper with dimentional portals back to the beings parallel world and that is why he also gives you the missions, he does not have the power ( as us heroes do ) to travel through the portal that is why he is always there and that is pretty much who Dr. Arcana is.

    Please. Take a look at his outfit, his walk, his hat. Ever wonder where the Undertaker from WWE ended up?

    He reminds me more of Shrike from Mortal Engines mixed with a little Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs..I half expect a van or an icecream truck to come around the corner every time I see him..creepy dude

    Darkwater Circle...is that supposed to be an evil version of the Deepwater Circle? :D

    It's the chaotic neutral one. The evil one is Blackwater Circle.
