Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 25. Chapters: Bartimaeus (book series), List of Bartimaeus characters, Magic in Bartimaeus, Ptolemy's Gate, The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem's Eye, The Ring of Solomon. Excerpt: The following is a list of characters in the Bartimaeus series by Jonathan Stroud. One of the trio of major characters in the series. In the first book, The Amulet of Samarkand, he is a 12 year old boy who is a magician in training, great admirer of William Gladstone, and foils a coup organized by Simon Lovelace and saves the life of the Prime Minister, Rupert Devereaux. In the second book, The Golem's Eye, after assuming a post in the government, he works towards stopping insurgent attacks in London and also attempting to destroy a golem and unmask the identity of its master.

This is made significant when he faces his greatest fear (as the magician John Mandrake) and divulges his true name to Kitty Jones. Over the course of the trilogy, Nathaniel, the innocent young boy hungry for knowledge, is transformed into the arrogant John Mandrake.

In his final moment, just before he sacrifices himself to kill the demon Nouda, he dismisses Bartimaeus, claiming that he would only botch the job and that dismissal would be the only way to get it right, although it is hinted by both Bartimaeus and Nathaniel that this is a last act of kindness and goodwill toward his long-suffering djinn. It is mentioned in Ptolemy's Gate that he is the strongest magician on...
