    The child Addie was born at the height of the power of Magincia, a short 4 years before the demonic invasion and the destruction of his home. His mother the healers guildmaster Genna, and his father a local politician his birth was one celebrated across the city.

    As all celebrations do, his ended and life returned to a normal pace. His life was marked with two parents teaching opposing views but both with a strict mind on education and the developing of his mind. His mother wished to instill into Addie a sense of humility, something she felt was lacking in their city. Addie's father, demanded his stiff upper lip and a strong sense of pride within his only son. So things continued and as parents do, they fought over such things.

    The night the walls fell and the population of Magincia was wiped from Britannia, Genna and her husband had quite a row. Addie hid his head under his pillow and cried, he hardly noticed when his hard sandstone walls began to crumble around him; nor did he notice his mother screaming for him.

    For Addie, he heard nothing, he simply cried himself to sleep.
    For Addie only seconds passed, he dreamed many dreams in a short time, and saw many things he did not understand... but they were only dreams. Surely, they were only dreams..

    For Addie's parents their last few seconds were lived in horror. The heavy sandstone walls around them collapsed into the house crushing tables and chairs, the whole structure was coming down. But they must get Addie out, for what parent would choose to live over their own child?

    Genna reached Addie's doorway quick enough to see a sight she did not understand, a void, a crack in what others of more learned sciences would call the space time continuum. When it disappeared, Addie too was gone. Tears and rubble hit the floor simultaneously and Addie's parents were crushed by both.

    Addie awoke to a strange landscape, a child of only four years old he found himself alone for the first time in his life. The area around him was unrecognizable, long flat grassland and bits of rubble. For hours he wandered, finally he found a small tent and hid inside, for there were scary men about, and dragons...

    Some found him later, hungry and tired with worry and doubt. He was taken to the Vesper Youth Hostel, far from his native home. Not knowing the fate of his family, or understanding his own.

    The Time Lord has issued a decree of death for the Magincian child Addie saying: "The child Addie is not a part of your time line, he must be purged. The error must be corrected for the preservation of this Britannian time line."

    He will summon a Time Vortex to erase the child Addie from our time line at 6pm EST on Tuesday, December 14th 2010.
