Background

Gaman Brouwn was born and raised in a small town south of Seattle. In his early years nothing much happened, but then he once woke up and saw weird things he only had heard off. Auras, spirits, and the beauty of the astral space. Fascinated by that he started experimenting. He discovered that he could leave his body and be free from all physical restraints. At first to his disappointment, he wasn't able to cast any spells, summon spirits or enhance his body. He wanted to see more of that world, so he studied the astral realm both as a job and as a hobby at the University of Washington, eventually becoming ThD of Astral Studies. In the 50s he participated in the study of mana storms in the Sahara. Through a chain of unfortunate events, he got caught by the storm and experienced the effects of a heavy manabolt on his own body. One of his friends and colleges had to cast a healing spell on the spot. The spell changed its effect and rapidly aged the elf. He survived that night just barely and carries the marks of it to this day. His hair has turned light grey, and he has some wrinkles. His physical shape has worsened considerably, but the mind remained sharp. After he recovered a bit from the shock he moved to Snohomish and changed subject he now studies the nature of spirits. In his quest for more and more knowledge, he reached out and found tomes that are not to be tampered with. From those tomes, he also learned his way of doing rituals. A thing that he previously thought be impossible to him. The tomes gave hints to deep knowledge into the entities that are commonly referred to as spirits. He digs further into this and without noticing it he adopts the Tradition of The Old Ones. Now he doesn't contribute anymore all of his insights to the research at Washington University, cause he doesn't regard all of his sources as save for the uninitiated.

One day he stumbled into an aztech ritual on the search for old ruins in the atzlanian jungle. After witnessing three human sacrifices he had to step in. Trying to overwhelm the ritual leader with his limited knowledge of astral combat turned to be a rather dumb idea. He nearly got killed by the guards and bloodspirits but managed to flee in time. He was very unsure how much Aztech knows about him until he barely survived the bloodspirit that was sent after him. From that day on he layed low. Had to quit his job. Now doing the research completly on his own and without supervisors. He deems less and less of his findings save to share. But he still contributed to the research at Washington University, be it through a good friend(the one that healed him). Soon he had to realize that life is expensive and without a job rather tough to pay for. So he searched and found. Low level jobs that weren't so legal. He soon realized that there is good money to make and expanded into another field of expertise, social stuff how he calls it. After five years of smaller jobs he now wants to do larger jobs, so he can focus more on his research, rather than surviving. That is the point at which he joins the Haven.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Positive

College Education - He spent a long time doing active research for the University of Washington

Mentor Spirit (Mechanic:Snake/Thematic:Knowledge) - Knowledge has recognised his desire for knowledge and showed him new and unorthodox ways to optain it.

Negative

Aged 2 - The effects of a healing spell cast in a manastorm.

Spirit Bane (Spirits of Beast) - there apperently has spread the rumor on the planes that he is grusome to them. He has no clue what they would think that. Must be a misunderstanding.

Gremlins - He and technology, those two don't mix well.
