Dragon Master

Only a powerful wizard can become the Dragon Master.There have been two Dragon Masters,the first being Hotep-Ra.The current Dragon Master is Septimus Heap (formerly known as Boy 412), apprentice of Marcia Overstrand. Septimus stumbled across the Dragon Ring at Keeper's Cottage when he fell into a tunnel that opened into Aunt Zelda's Unstable Potions and Partikular Potions Cupboard, which,incidentally,also leads into the Queen's Room (which only appears to the Queen and the Princess).
