Background

The Gifted is the name given to humans that possess the natural ability to tap into the most primal forces in existence – the stuff that normal humans called Magic. The Catalyst is the High Mage of his or her era and generally there is only one per century, though their tenure sometimes varied in length and occasionally overlapped. They could be recognized not only by their power but by a peculiar uniform that went along with the responsibility of wielding that much magical ability… an emerald set of clothing that changed appearance with the times but always bore a similar look.

In 1942, Nathaniel Caine adopted the mantle of The Catalyst – unknowingly disrupting the plans of a secretive coven of witches. This group of women known as The Sisters cloistered together in the small town of Milledgeville, Georgia. Their goal was to raise the next Catalyst, ensuring that she would be loyal to no one else besides them.

A ten-year-old member of the coven was impregnated by a powerful warlock and she died giving birth to one of the ‘Gifted’ in 1927. The infant was named Logan and raised by The Sisters, who sought to keep her secluded from the rest of society. Logan’s adventurous nature, however, led her to frequently running away and meeting local youths, particularly boys. She became adept at using her natural abilities, with a special focus on visions of the future. As such, she was nicknamed Augur by The Sisters.

Eventually, the now 17-year-old Logan learned that The Sisters considered her to be a failure in light of Nathaniel Caine’s ascendance. They planned to sacrifice her to an ancient entity known as The Elder, who wished to feed upon her magically-enhanced blood. Fleeing, she eventually found herself alongside Assistance Unlimited, who aided her in defeating both The Sisters and The Elder. She became a member of Lazarus Gray’s team in 1944, coming under the tutelage of both Abby Cross (who adopted her) and The Catalyst. While she would never be the most powerful magic-user of her era, her legend would nonetheless grow larger with each passing year.

The stats above reflect her abilities as of 1944.
