Magnus Godrikson portrait 2

Magnus Godrikson is a human wagon driver, merchant and barrister who was among the initial group of 500 people to exiled through the Portal by Msimangu.

Description Edit

Magnus is 5'10" middle-aged human. He has wizened green eyes and straight gray hair tied into a pony tail with black cord. He is usually seen dressed formally, in a particularly warm black barrister's robe with a white collar and black leather shoes. When he isn't on his wagon, he's usually nearby.

Background Edit

His parents died and he was cared for as an orphan by the temple. He studied well, excelling in mathematics and heraldry, and gradually learned to make a living by arranging trades and deals to help everyone get what they needed. When he came of age, he used the inheritance his parents had left him to make a living as a merchant and trader. He understood that local laws made a huge impact on trade, and learned the laws so that they would offer an advantage to him, rather than a hindrance. At times, he used his knowledge of the law to interfere with corrupt guards and nobles. He demanded justice, and had the courtroom skills to get it. Because of this, he was coerced into exile, with guards threatening his wife and his son if he refused to leave. The guards kept his family as hostages, and told him they would be killed if he didn't go through the portal with the first large group of exiles in two days.
