For those that know me, hullo.

For those that don’t, let me introduce myself: I am James Michael Donobran, born Sean Conner Glendower.

Yes, THAT Glendower family. The most inbred clan of evil magicians that you find on the planet. See why I left? I didn’t want to go into the family business; demons are unpleasant, human sacrifice is appaling, and I didn’t want that much power.

So one night I cast a spell that rendered me invisible to my family and hoofed it from the Highlands, to London, and thence to Australia. Took up life as a ranch hand. Totally different kind of life. And it let me keep my magical shield up – had to renew it with blood sacrified once a year after the first. My employers were pleased I’d step up to help with the cattle slaughter when it came time; we both got what we needed.

Still, I had power… and power calls to power. One night, watching the cattle, there was a falling star. And then it hit me. Turned out it was a spirit, come to teach me magic, get me ready to stop my entire family. Too much evil in the world, they said. Too much nastiness. Need a champion.You’re it.


Couldn’t use my name or my Name (especially after how much I worked to change my Name, to keep myself safe from the family sending curses), so just to be cheeky, I chose my use-name as the place that kept me safe and happy: Outback. May need to change it, though.

So, after some foolishness in New York City, I ended up wandering the United States, taking care of things. Remind me to tell you sometime about Owen MacAllister, the vampire I saved from a vampire hunter in Iowa. Or Desdemona, the succubus I helped retire from Hell over in San Francisco, or the Franks, four poor homunculi some idiot tried to drown in a river. (They work as a cemetary caretaker.) Or a few others I’ve encountered.

Seems that no matter where I go, I run into the weird, the strange… and they need my help. Some are looking to change sides in the big War, some just want to live their lives.

And when I run into something that preys on others? That’s when I roll up the sleeves of my coat and start slinging the spells around.

Because someone’s got to, and I’m too kind-hearted to let them down.
