Allavan was a tinker mage. Allavan was well-known for his use of technological devices to aid his arcane casting abilities. He found, through much experimentation, that many of the disadvantages arcane casters suffered could be countered through appropriate use of science. One problem in particular was that if he found himself silenced, he couldn't cast spells with verbal components – that is to say most of his spells. To deal with this eventuality, he developed the voice amplification modulator, a technical device that replicated sounds as a series of vibrations. Although he never perfected the item, he did find that it worked well enough to suit his purposes. He also invented the spellpower goggles xtreme to improve his spellcasting abilities. They allowed him to collect and focus his power when worn.
