The Old Master is often the sensei to one of the main characters, training them so they can [[PassingTheTorch pass on the torch]] to the new generation (and maybe earn themselves a break). To do so, the character typically prefers the WaxOnWaxOff approach to education and the WhenYouSnatchThePebble approach to final exams. Crueler or GoodIsNotSoft classes of Old Masters, on the other hand, function as the DrillSergeantNasty, and those who study under him had better be prepared for TrainingFromHell. In short, this character can be of any morality, alignment, or ''ethnicity'' whatsoever.
