Duncan of Glen Airgead


Duncan was born and raised with his identical twin brother Magnus, and had all of the same promise as his twin. Together, there was nothing that the two of them couldn't do. And when it was discovered that not one, but both of them had the Gift, that seemed all the more so. They were apprenticed at the same covenant in Scotland and started their magical career together, as they did most things.

Unfortunately, circumstances would soon change. Five years into his apprenticeship, Duncan was the victim of a laboratory accident. There was a terrible explosion that left the apprentice both injured and, worse, without the Gift. It's possible that some materials he was working with were unstable. It's also possible that Duncan's Gift was weakening already and this was some manifestation of that. Some theorized that the Gift had been spread too thin between the twins and couldn't sustain them both. But none of that really mattered. Duncan was now a failed apprentice.

The covenant was kind to the unfortunate former apprentice. He was, after all, smart and educated by now. His training as a scholar continued, and he had a fine future ahead of himself as a magus' companion and laboratory assistant. Despite the loss of his Gift, Duncan nevertheless excelled at his studies. By the time Magnus was a newly gauntleted magus, Duncan was considered a valuable scholar both in and out of the lab.

It was only in his thirties, however, that Duncan found his dream. While visiting another covenant, the scholar discovered an old tractatus purporting to be about the lost city of Atlantis. Duncan was immediately captivated. He spent months poring over this document, and began to seek out others, as well as any scholars who knew anything about Atlantis. There was little enough information, but Duncan compiled it all. Within twenty years he felt that he was closing in on something that had eluded scolars for centuries - the resting place of that legendary city. He shared his findings with his brother, who happened to be a Rego-Terram specialist, and the two came up with a plan for raising the island to serve as a haven for the magi of Mythic Europe.

What followed was many years of carefully sounding out other magi to find a select few that shared their dream. In time they found a handful. Together, this group would raise the island that contained the sunken city and create a new place where magi could be safe.
