Dark Age: Mage
Magnus was first encountered whilst exploring Crays near the city of Szczecin. Hidden under a boot shop, Magnus holds a hermetic Cray of stronghold energies with a small library of Hermetic magical tomes. Upon entering the shop, Magnus recognized the “special” natures of Bogdan, Brodir Olafson, Jamal Al Farouk and Konrad just as they recognized his in return. Magnus greeted the group warmly and offered them access to the Quintessence of the Cray. Magnus seems to have been aware of the impending Tzimisce attack on his Sanctum, for upon feeding the Cray’s surplus energies to the group, a crash is heard above and Magnus informs the others that they will either have to defend the Cray or give it over to the vampires.
From Jamal’s Diary: Magnus is the first “Real Mage” we have run across in some months. He is as clever with his magic as he is with boots, although rather obvious suggestions somehow confuse and bewilder him.
