How does the scoring work?

Catfishing is a guessing game built from Wikipedia articles. Given a list of all the categories that an article belongs to, you must guess which article it's describing.

(Beware: Some of these questions are very out of date! The game used to be live but stopped being able to connect to Wikipedia after an API change in 2009.)

Here's your first one:

Characters in written fictionFictional magiciansEuropean folklore
Literature protagonistsLegendsFictional alchemists
What person or place or thing belongs to all of these categories?
