Though the face he wears is full of youth an vigor, Brigath is old. Very old. He was trained up as an assassin, but a botched job revealed that he had been born with the blood of a mage. For many years, while he studied and developed his new skills, he was forced to live with the scars of that revelation. The transformation magic that Brigath eventually mastered in an attempt to expunge those scars brought him great power, but not enough to break the curse that bound him. In desperation, he turned to the necromantic arts and was at last able to rid himself of the disfigurement that had been forced upon him. Those arts also offered him the opportunity to extend his life beyond the years naturally allotted to him.
He has long been a patron of the Duel of Swords, though he as absent from the arena for several years, and was an inaugural player in the Team Dueling league. He is now actively involved in the Duel of Magic and can often be found lurking about the Twilight Isle.
