To Whom it May Concern:
I, Atrox of House Albayati, seek teachers so that I may follow their path as a Red Wizard's apprentice. I make the uncommon request that I see more than one Master for guidance on this path. I have no doubt of my abilities. Seek me out at your convenience.
With Respect, Atrox
