My name is Nox Sétanta. I’m a Libra. What’s your sign?
Okay not really a line that works. But “Hey Duckling, wanna *ahem*” doesn’t work either.
Anyway, me. I like talking about me.
I was born in Boulder, Colorado. Grew up in the great city of New York. That’s a long story I don’t want to get into right now. I am improbable. There is a whole line of statistics I could get into to tell you how improbable my birth was but I won’t bore you with those details.
My mother is human. Her family was annihilated when she was young. She grew up in the Venatori as well. Learned all about how cruel and evil the other supernatural creatures were. She took it to heart and when her son turned out to be something more than mundane she shipped him off and forgot all about him.
My father is Venatori. He is a hunter, like my mother, and myself. He is one of the best there is with his ability to determine the best option in a infinitesimal amount of time. My father didn’t know I existed until I was 18 years old and he was informed – oh yeah by the way you have another son.
They are my parents and I don’t know either of them, and I don’t really care. The only family I need is the one I choose, which right now consists of one soul – my best friend Jason Hill.
Jace has been my best friend since we were 5 years old. We’ve done a lot together – mostly got in trouble.
I am Magnus, and what that means is I can bend the elements – do magic in layman’s terms. But again I’m improbable. I can bend all four elements at the same time. Not exactly profound if you think about it. But it’s a rare talent in the Venatori, most can only bend one or two elements but never bend them all together. Some say I’m the strongest Cesari living today. Cesari is what I am – a Magnus that can bend all four elements at the same time. I don’t know how true that is, I’ve only met one other Cesari. Like I said it’s rare.
I am a hunter – it is my ultimate destiny to uphold the law of the Clandestine Providence. I help maintain order and the secrecy of our supernatural world. Without the Clandestine Providence the human world would shatter. What was once thought of as impossible is no probable. Myths and legends would destroy the world because they had the power to do so. Humanity would cease to exist and there would be all out war among the other races on this blue marble in the universe we call home. There is no God – only us. We all evolved for various reasons and some greater being took it upon his own person to protect every race. Thus creating the laws of the Clandestine Providence.
I was born to be a hunter. I will likely die a hunter. But I don’t have to like the job I do. I find it barbaric that we can’t find a better way to handle the little things. The punishment should fit the crime not a one size fits all – you will die if you break the law.
That’s the basics of me except for my dashing self. I’m 6’1″ approximately 145 lbs of lean muscle. It takes me fricking forever to get to an ideal muscle mass for the job I do and the creatures I go up against. I don’t have Venatori strength or speed. I am at a disadvantage so I eat healthy, workout everyday and practice as much as my schedule allows me too.
Maybe one day I’ll let AJ describe me to you. I’m horrible at colorful words unless you like them vulgar and inappropriate.
So that’s me in a nutshell.
