Gavin At Winter 1219

Background

Has a Leanan Sidhe as a father and a human as mother. He was taken from his home in the north of England as a babe and replaced with a changeling, the actual son of his adopted Faerie father. Following that, he was raised in splendor by Faeries until he was fifteen years old. Meanwhile, his changeling 'brother' grew up with Gavin's human family, where he was a real bastard, not making many friends.

When he was in his mid-teens, Gavin was identified as having the Gift. This was a human thing, and so he was given over to a magus to train. This particular magus was Acutus ex Miscellanea who travelled with the Semitae caravan in the Stonehenge tribunal. One day Acutus disappeared into a Faerie circle, and that evening he emerged with Gavin.

The next fifteen years were spent traveling all over Stonehenge, seeing the sights and learning magic. Eventually he was gauntleted, at which point he moved north to Loch Leglean where he took a junior position in Mac Gruagach covenant. During this time, his faerie 'brother' returned to Faerie. Unfortunately, Gavin has to live with the reputation he now has from what the changeling did.
