Mentioned in Sourcery, Gravie Derment was an eight Level Wizard and a head of the Sages of the Unknown Shadow at Unseen University.

During the events of Sourcery, he met with Spelter and the five remaining order heads to decide what to do about Coin.

He thumped his fist on the table.

'Good grief, man!' he snapped. 'Some child wanders in out of the night, beats two of the University's finest, sits down in the Archchancellor's chair and you wonder if we have a problem? The boy's a natural! From what we've seen tonight, there isn't a wizard on the Disc who could stand against him!'

'Why should we stand against him?' said Spelter, in a reasonable tone of voice.

'Because he's more powerful than we are!'

This, in a nutshell, describes the attitudes of wizards towards one another. Their whole lives are based on one-upmanship, and we all know what happnes if one is "one-upmanned", viz. they are dead.
