The sorcerer - in Germany many might think of the great book and movie "The Ringer" by Edgar Wallace.
Looking at the raven, some might get pictures of "Krabat" oder other raven figures in fairytales in mind.
However, all this is not what our sorcerer is about and to be honest: We don't know (yet) any concrete (literary) template for him.

But who is the sorcerer? Or the raven?
Both have in common that they are often depicted as bad luck bringing or convicted to misfortune figures in fairy tales. Thus, the Seven Brothers (Brothers Grimm), after being cursed by the father, became the Seven Ravens. In "Krabat" (Otfried Preußler) and the Southern Italian folk tale "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" (Waldemar Kaden), young men have to be identified among several same looking ravens to be redeemed.
Sorcerer transform themselves into ravens, rob young girls and don't release others from their ban. Only a clever ruse - as in "Krabat" or "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" - is able to break this ban.
Is the sorcerer calles a magnicien on the other hand, he is attributed with good characteristics. The Druid Getafix in "Asterix and Obelix" prepares a magic potion to give strength. Merlin has healing powers and can predict things by having visions. In great shows magicians and illusionists astonish us when the unreals seems to be real.

Anyway, our sorcerer is a magician too and enchants everyone with his grace. The silky dress in silver and gold, the black feather dress in soft faux fur and clear eyes let the ravens appear as an impressive figure. Fine details such as the magic wand with the snake, the amulet, the stand-up collar on the coat and the long belt provide dignity to him. Of course he delivers not bad luck, but might attract you to the "World of Fairytales" by Kösen Manufacturer.
