Brechdan stands on the terrace of Castle Dhangodhan. Magnusson stands on the observation deck of his home in the desirable tract north of Aurea on Daedalus.
Brechdan has a scar that throbs on his forehead. Magnusson's left cheek has a battle scar which he has not had removed and which has become his trademark.
Brechdan persuaded Erik Magnusson to serve the God, the Roidhun and the Race and to give them his son, Olaf. The boy was trained in a secret school on Merseia and conditioned by Aycharayach. Thus, Brechdan and Aycharaych wrought long term harm. Tachwyr had succeeded Brechdan and Chereion had been destroyed before Olaf tried to seize the Terran Throne.
