♚ History ♚
Born in northern Mirinah, Dagda MacLean grew up with two parents who hated each other and a sister and brother who didn’t particularly like him. He was the good, quiet child so his siblings resented him in their childhood years. After his parents finally split, he spent time back and forth with each. Both parents continued to spent their time and energy fighting with one another, neglecting their children and their needs. During this time of turmoil he was jokingly told by his siblings to kill the werewolf that had been terrorizing a neighboring town and bring back its pelt to impress their parents. Dagda, desperate for love and attention from his parents, took it seriously and left home without a word one night, heading towards the next village over to find the werewolf. A week later he returned home without a werewolf pelt and with a festering werewolf bite. He tried to hide the werewolf’s bite from his family, but it didn’t take them long to find out. Horrified and disgusted by his failure to kill the werewolf and his new condition, his mom kicked him out and his dad refused to speak to him. Dagda was out on his own at just 15 years old.
The werewolf’s bite caused Dagda to have his right arm amputated, but the werewolf’s disease had already taken hold of him. After surviving several full moon transformations, Dagda fled to the Outer Realm and met a witch several years older than him. She invited him to join a group of vigilantes who used violence to keep humans out of natural spaces. The young man was infatuated with the witch, so he joined the vigilantes and did everything she asked of him. The witch took advantage of this and they entered into a very manipulative, one-sided relationship. Using his loyalty to her benefit, she pushed Dagda to take things further past the law and his own moral standings. Eventually, when she found out he was originally a human, she deserted him and the vigilantes banished him.
Dagda was on his own for a few years before he met his wife Adamina at a bar in Newdale. The two had a playful brawl in the midst of a bar fight, and it was love from that moment on. After several years together and a lovely wedding in the mountains, they had a child. The young boy was full of personality and energy, loving nature just as much as his father. Shortly after his fifth birthday he fell suddenly ill. Within a month, he had gone from a vibrant child to a hollow, sickly husk of himself. It didn’t take long for his body to give out on him.
The grief of their son’s death tore Dagda and Adamina apart. No amount of effort or help could save their marriage, so just a few months later they parted ways. Adamina is MIA as far as anyone knows. Dagda spends his time pursuing a childhood passion of his by growing and selling his own flowers and plants from a cart he brings to Riverforte every weekend. During the night, he’ll often pursue the same goals of his teen years in the vigilante group, though he does it alone and more peacefully now.
Though they haven’t met and neither knows it yet, Dagda is an alternate universe version of Abelios’ father. Abe comes from another world, but they still share DNA if one were to test it in Rivengate with Otherworlder technology.
