Backstory

Stumbling upon an important discovery in his youth Magnus’ family kept him under house arrest to keep the secret from escaping. With little else to do for years he took to reading and found a passion for history, natural philosophy, cartography and of course magic. Once a man, he was finally allowed certain freedoms. Freedoms that he was unprepared for and went straight to his head.

Shortly thereafter he shamed the family by impregnating the daughter of a rival house. Magnus was forced to marry the girl and the Marché’s had to pass on their discovery as a dowry. Magnus was allowed only a few short years with his children before being sent overseas to use his talents as a cartographer with a guild known as Les Calipers Acquis. There he proved quite capable and moved into more archaeological related practices.

Eventually, war broke out between Oskiliath and Maurdorne and Magnus was recruited as a Specialist Field Officer, smuggling people and supplies to and from the front lines. The war took its toll on Magnus. He lost many friends and did unsavoury things to save lives. These scars he carries still, along with the secret that brought Maurdorne to the peace table.

Then he was tasked with ending the threat of Maurdorne for good. He soldiered forward, too ashamed to look back, in the fervent ambition to make amends with his family, and that his children will never have to know war.

Death

Magnus left the party seemingly loosing his mind, after receiving news that his children had died. He left all his possessions with 428, and in a shimmer of light, vanished.

Magnus later reappeared at the Cataclysm of Nezhar, along side Orryon. In the aftermath of the battle, it was found that he was felled by a shade.
