Mags was a Trainee in the Heraldic Collegium in Haven,
Valdemarâ€™s capital city. Though his background of poverty
and abuse at Cole Pietersâ€™ gem mine set him apart from most
other trainees, nonetheless he had found his own group of
friends. Bear, Lena, and Amily were all students whose
situations in life set them apart from more usual Trainees.
The four of them had found mutual support in their shared
misfortunes, and together struggled to help one another find
solutions to their individual problems.
But Magsâ€™ friendship with Amily brought him to the attention
of the Kingâ€™s Own. The seemingly immortal Companion Rolan
had Chosen Nikolas to suit the specific needs of the current
monarch, and those needs were for an agent who could collect
information surreptitiously. Nikolas recognized the same
traits in Mags that Rolan had recognized in him and because
of Magsâ€™ friendship with Amily, no one would think twice
about seeing her overprotective father spending time with
So Mags began training as Nikolasâ€™ partner. They worked in
disguise at night with Mags as Nikolasâ€™ deaf and mute
helper, where his extensive knowledge of gems â€” especially
his skill at separating the real from the fake â€” would be an
added benefit. Hiding in the shadows behind the desk,
pretending to neither hear nor speak, Mags could better
â€śobserveâ€ť the clients, and even the surrounding
neighborhood. And Nikolas could send him out on â€śerrandsâ€ť to
chase down leads.
But this new job was far more dangerous than Mags had ever
considered. For there were mysterious agents in the city â€”
agents who sought to bring down the kingdom, and no one knew
where they came from or who they worked for. They were
smart, talented, and preternaturally fast. And most of all
they were willing to do anything â€” anything â€” to bring
Valdemar to ruin.
