Henry Fogg is a magician and the Dean of Brakebills University.


Henry Fogg is an African American man, with a strong build and broad shoulders. He is bald, and almost never smiles. After his first encounter with the Beast, he's forced to wear a pair magic glasses after being blinded. Fogg always presents himself elegantly, owning a variety of tailored suits, complimented with intricately knotted ties. The area surrounding his eyes suffers from permanent damage, though thanks to the medical staff at Brakebills, the scar tissue has healed relatively well.


Henry Fogg is an efficient man who knows how to intervene in the most dire situations, although some of his opponents describe him as cowardly or selfish. Dean Fogg is a man who takes into account the preservation of his students, although he doesn't think twice to punish them severely when they commit serious errors.


Magic and AbilitiesEdit

  • Master Magician: Henry Fogg is a master magician, who excels as a Knowledge disciple. A former student and Alumni of Brakebills University , Henry Fogg has the knowledge and skill of a formidable magician, accumulating over the years to grant him the power of a Master Magician and earning him the right to serve as the school's Dean of Brakebills. As such, he retains great insight to the magical mishaps of his students, and is often sought out for help by many skilled magicians. Professor Mayakovsky, however, looks down upon Fogg, due to his reputation of being cowardly and selfish. However, Dean Fogg was notably able to spar one on one with The Beast, albeit only briefly. As a tribute to his power, he was shown as being unaffected by the Beast's paralyzing spell over an entire class during it's appearance, and is able to retain his memories from previous timelines, with only The Beast itself being able to do the same.
    • Battle Magic: Fogg is proficient in battle magic, capable of quickly summoning a spell as he charged into Professor Van Der Weghe's class to face The Beast. The spell, though ultimately ineffectual, was substantial enough to send the Beast back into the table. Fogg recognizes his slights in this field, notably referring Quentin and his allies to a former Professor, and ex-lover, a pixie named Bigby, who used to teach a Battle Magic course at Brakebills before the school board deemed the class too dangerous.
  • Experienced Educator & Administrator: As Dean of Brakebills, he is entrusted with the safety of his students from external forces and internal mishaps attributed to young magicians. As such, he personally oversees the abilities of potential Brakebills' students during their Entrance Exam, and was undaunted at the task of facing the Beast.


  • Whilst in the novels Henry Fogg is described as blond, in the TV series he is a bald man of African descent.
