MorganFairy Tale Character:
Morgan le FeyFrom Fairy Tale:
While he is significantly older than he looks, he keeps himself looking very young. Morgan is actually into his forties yet he has the appearance of a boy in his teens. It makes others underestimate him significantly as well as keeping himself looking young and beautiful, if he needs to seduce someone for some purpose. He has very dark hair and eyes as well as pale skin. He spends almost no time in the light, living under a veil of the forest. His body otherwise is flawless. He keeps himself looking smooth normally, but shifts himself to match someone's desire, reading their mind, again if he needs to seduce them. If he gets any sort of mark on his skin: a cut or bruise, he just easily removes it with his healing.Species:
Morgan does not talk to anyone regularly. And when he does talk to someone it is normally only if he needs them for some purpose. He is outwardly cold to anyone and everyone. It is clear that he is loath to work with anyone on anything, but needs must when needs must. His outward personality is a reflection of his massive hatred for anything and anyone who is not magical. He has never actually attacked a city or town. Not just yet. Even though he is extremely powerful, Morgan doesn't think he is powerful enough on his own to take on an entire army. He'd probably be able to take down half of it, maybe even three-fourths, but not nearly enough to justify an attack just yet. So he waits, impatiently, to build an army of his own to take down the non-magic people of the world.
Mordred is the only exception to the way he acts. Mordred could be said to be his one weakness. He is passionate and caring towards his son and lover, the only person he cares about. And the only person he would actively protect if pushed, and maybe even die for (unless of course someone is of strategic value to him). Not only does he take on the role of parent and lover to his son, he is also teacher, helping Mordred perfect his magical ability and try to make him as strong as himself, or maybe stronger. Morgan trusts Mordred absolutely, the only person he trusts.From/Lives in Kingdom:

Teaching/Killing/Recruiting/A little of everythingHistory:
Morgan grew up in a little village on one of the larger lakes of Lothendania. It was a village almost entirely made up of mages. There were tensions in the kingdom of Lothendania towards mages as they realized how powerful mages could be and how destructive they could be. It could be potentially unsafe for mages living in cities in Lothendania. Of course their abilities were powerful, but no amount of power could stop someone stabbing you in the back or while you slept. Thus the mages lived in small villages together. The one in which Morgan grew up was surrounded by a magical barrier to keep people from seeing or hearing the village or anyone in it. Although not a barrier that could keep people out.
One day, when Morgan was about seven, he was playing outside of the barrier. His parents had always told him not to go outside of the barrier, that it was dangerous, but he had never really listened. Morgan was a rebellious little boy, always one to do his own thing. He didn't really understand the concept of consequences. However he would soon learn. When he was playing away from the village, Morgan saw a man dying on a road. The man had multiple stab wounds and looked like he could barely breath. His clothes were strange to Morgan: leather armor (for those in Lothendania never wore heavy armor, their kingdom mostly made of water) with some sort of symbol on the front. There was a sword and shield lying next to him. Morgan had known about his magical abilities for several years now, and used some of his healing power on this man. As the man sat up, his wounds disappeared. He looked down at the young Morgan and thanked him before getting up and walking away. Though not before hiding and watching Morgan walk through the barrier and into his village.
This turned out to be very bad, as the man Morgan healed was a knight in service to Dorhaven itself. He was not only a knight, but a knight who feared mages. It was was the reason he had volunteered for service in the first place. It was not long after that fateful day that Morgan's village was overrun by a massive army. It had turned out that the knight had told the king that there was a mage village hidden in their very kingdom, and what was more the mages in the village were plotting to overthrow the kingdom. The attack went very badly. Almost all of the mages were killed. Morgan was told to run as the soldiers destroyed his village. When he got out of the barrier, the sounds and sights of the attack stopped, and it was a shock for him, knowing that on the other side of that barrier, his friends and family were being murdered, and it was all his fault. Tears in his eyes, he ran until he reached the root of the tree separating one kingdom from the next. He managed to live there for a time, eating what food from the wilds that he could, hunting and cooking with his magic.
Several years later, he began tunneling through the root, trying to escape. Escape not only the kingdom that had destroyed him, but the memory of what he had done. He ended up in Ybardolla, living in the massive forest that made up the bulk of the kingdom's land. There he grew up, wanting revenge on those who had done this to him. He ended up hating. It was very easy to hate when he was all alone in the forest. As he grew up and started going threw puberty, he used his magic to rape innocent travelers. Or he killed them, depending on what mood he was in. His first time killing a human, he did not have the reservations about it that he thought he would. It was a human. And what was more, a human without magic. There was no reason not to kill it. Tales of dark things lurking in the forest soon popped up in Ybardolla. Even if he let someone go, Morgan always wiped their memory of the incident, leaving them with nothing but a feeling of darkness in the forest. They invented all kinds of stories and monsters to explain it. The recent loss of the royal family (Otho's history) made it all the easier. The internal upheaval of the kingdom made it harder to organize any sort of attack on Morgan. He was distant from harm and easily did what he wanted.
Around the age of twenty five, there was a forest dryad that took a liking to Morgan. She raped him for which Morgan never forgave her. He kept her prisoner and berated himself for being defeated so easily. He would never make that mistake again. After she had the child, Morgan killed her, of course. He couldn't let her live for what she had done. The child was Mordred. Morgan raised him to do the same things that he did, murdering and raping travelers, terrorizing people. As Mordred grew up, Morgan kept himself looking young, to make it easier to relate to his son. He and Mordred quickly became lovers as well. They lived together in the forest in a large house that Morgan had built over the years. It had a magical barrier, similar to the one that had been around Morgan's village all those years ago. It was so well hidden that even the best rangers and trackers couldn't find it. And that was where Morgan waited for an opportunity to attack.
