"Le Prince-Magicien" is the ruler of New Averoigne, Grand Master of the School and Viscount of Sylaire... 
It is next to impossible to meet him in person; however, he may show up at embarrassing moments when an important character is plotting against him.

Etienne is a major character in "The Immortals' Fury" campaign arc, a series of adventures detailed in the "Wrath of the Immortals" (1992) boxed set, by Aaron Allston.
