Karl Magnusson

Born among the fjords of Norway, Karl was a skald and scholar in life, dedicated to the preservation of the old ways of his people in the face of the imminent Christianization of Scandinavia. After being assaulted by the soldiers of the new Christian king, he was Embraced by Laufi Black-Tongue, a Gangrel in the service of the All-High at Uppsala.

After the burning of the temple of the All-High and the scattering of the Aesir, he traveled the world, seeking out other groups of Clan Gangrel and passing on knowledge as a teacher and wise-man. He entered torpor on the Faroe Islands in 1357, awakening in 1881.

After a period of time to adjust to the new world he awoke to, he went west over the sea to America in the 1920s, and has been slowly moving west ever since.

Karl took part in the Sabbat siege of Detroit in 1941, where the Sabbat used the chaos of the union riots to wage a silent war against the Kindred of the city, wiping out almost one-quarter of the Camarilla members that dwelt there.

He prevented a Lupine-Gangrel war in Minneapolis in 1957 by scouting out the Lupine territory and returning with vital intelligence on their numbers and confirmation of an old legend regarding silver and werewolves. He is given the deed-name Silverclaw.
