Ian Maddox is a character that appears at the end of Season 4 and makes a more main appearance on Just Add Magic: Mystery City. He and the Wesson brothers were protectors of the book in the 1800s until Clint and Folsom Wesson created the sourdough starter recipe. The starter caused great destruction and mayhem to the town, so Ian took the starter and hid it at Unity Station in the future. He traded his life to stay in the future with Erin and Zoe. The magic caused him to die, not from a sickness or disease.
