Description and History
is always after one thing: power. He has fought, bitten, and clawed his way to his current
level by out-thinking some of the biggest names in the Realms. He cares for the other
Riders of the Elvenflow mostly because leading the group is a great ego boost. He will
defend them to the death, maybe, (He is chaotic!) and then browbeat them when the fight is
done. His only true loves are himself, and Ambrosia.
Magnus was born Kaa'bari Salta'res, the son of a member of the Elvish court. His father
had remained behind; living outside of Arabel in Cormyr, to keep the elves informed as to
what the humans were doing to the Elven Woods. Magnus was always mischievous, and his
father apprenticed him to a mage as soon as he was old enough to keep him out of trouble.
decided he was smarter than his master was, and attempted to prove it. As a result, his
master's laboratory blew up, and Magnus's father severely punished him. Angered by his
punishment, Magnus pretended to repent then stole some Fireball scrolls. One night he blew
up his house, killing everyone in it, and went out on his own. He was soon attacked by a
pack of wolves and forced to defend himself with a puny dagger. A young paladin, Cassius
Vaughn, happened by and saved him. They decided to remain together for mutual protection,
and soon encountered four other young adventurers. They grouped together as the Company of
the Iron Circle. They were soon kidnapped by an evil group and branded to do their
bidding. In the attempt to destroy their tormenters, they liberated the town of Hap from
an evil mage. Magnus, who by now had managed to declare himself the leader of the group,
decided that the party should rule the town. He renamed the town Elven Flow (Hap was
stupid, he thought), and the party The Riders of Elven Flow. He encouraged the party to
swell to the ridiculous number of 17, and has used them to turn Elven Flow into a powerful
presence in the heartlands of the Realms.
Magnus has undergone many changes since he was created (he sure didn't start with those
scores!). The most visible is a pair of wings that have been permanently grafted onto his
back. His bones have also been made hollow, like a bird, giving him a flight speed of 40,
also has many unique spells that he has created over the years. They include Magnus's Mind
Meld, Magnus's Damage Absorption, Magnus's Molecular Maneuvering, Magnus's Manacles,
Magnus's Partial Teleport, Magnus's Familiar Protection, and Magnus's Improved
Telekinesis. (For details, just E-Mail me).
*Magnus received a 5% Magic Resistance during one of his adventures.
Magnus always tries to keep the best magic items for himself. He currently possesses a
Girdle of Trollmoors (so he can regenerate), and a Rod of Xavier, which he made himself
(Again, E-Mail me for details). He has lots of other crap, but nothing real exciting.
Despite being so high in level (and yes, I actually did earn all of those), Magnus has
only died once. Early in his career he was killed by.... giant crocodiles. He has ever
since HATED reptiles, especially crocodiles, with a passion.
