MCSEE chooses to study the theory of sorcery on Valaris where magic is anathema and is a member of the Society of Sorcerers based in Gasmoor. Of course, as with the Mantle, this society is a secret and few know of it. He is a big man with fiery red hair and beard, and never stands aside in a brawl, and yet he is envious when he realises what Rayne is capable of (born, after all, to the same conditioning) and this escalates when it is revealed Taranis, Guardian, is Valarian also. McSee has the theory of magic, but has never put it into practice, and thus feels unworthy … and envious.
As Rayne arrives in Farinwood in search of Aven, so does McSee in search of Rayne. They meet, and from then on travel together, but it’s a prickly situation.
Will McSee overcome his bias?
