Magister Galefridus Peregrinus is one of the masters at the relatively newly formed University at Cantebrigge. His father was a physician who went on Crusade, and was captured by the Saracens. During his captivity, he studied Islamic medical practices and when released, returned home and taught them to his son. Magister Galefridus occasionally visits a Far Eastern island nation, where he is known as Taguchi Moronaga.
