Goodwyn was the royal sorcerer of Enchancia, during King Roland I's reign.[3], but not King Roland II's reign.[4] He and his wife, Winnifred, have since retired, now living in Mystic Meadows.[1]


Goodwyn and Winnifred keep watch of Cedric from an enchanted painting they gave him, coming out if need be.[3] He didn't approve of Cedric's plots to overthrow Roland II, as that was not the job of a royal sorcerer. He also didn't like that Winnifred would disagree with him by encouraging Cedric's evil desires.[3]

He had trouble believing Cedric could be a good sorcerer and say any spell correctly or pose correctly as he did them, until a visit to Mystic Meadows with Princess Sofia got him to see that Cedric was capable if he stayed out of the way.[1]
