The Last Remaining Light
Alpha testers for Morgan's dream
A scattered mess of mages ranging from raw Disciples to some skill, hedge wizards (linear mages, or sorcerers to put it more kindly), and consor hangers-on, gathered from all over the United States by their respective Traditions and rallying around the Verbena Council representative, Hector de Xangô.
The prospects for House Diedne are lean, unwashed, but tough, having survived quite a bit just to get this far. Not afraid to brandish a gun or their foci, inspired by the example of Morgan and Joshua and the Rogue Council, they look ready to unleash their spellwork against the enemies of Ascension. Paradox be damned.
While finding most of the Diedne curious and at times entertaining, in the end Morgaine decided it was best that they go to Glastonbury Tor and aid the growing Awakened presence being gathered there by the surviving, resident Verbena. That is, all but one; Marius’ would-be assassin, Sebastian Chase, was kept with the Defiant and its crew. Although his place on the ship was acquired through distrust (both from the other Diedne and from Marius himself), it’s arguably either a challenge worthy of a true Tytalan disciple, or a death sentence.
