Of the name of Stonehenge. These works prior to the Roman times. Who were the builders? Of the general situation of it, again. Of the beauty of its general proportion. A peep into it. A walk round the area. Remarks on two stones standing on the vallum, and two corresponding cavities for water vases: explained from ancient coins. That the Welsh are the remains of the Belgæ from the continent, who lived here at the Roman invasion, and by whose reports, Stonehenge was built by the most ancient oriental colony, that brought the Druids hither.

He was from a world long forgotten when sorcerers and wizards began to co-exist with the growing and oppressive human populations. He was born a Prince of a powerful Druid family. He was trained as a warrior and as a sorcerer and was second in power only to his father, who unwisely attempted to form a truce and alliance with a similarly powerful rival Druid family. An act of treachery forced the Druid Prince into immortal exile, where he is reincarnated endlessly only to die a violent death as a warrior in a thousand battles in a hundred wars. He is among us now and continues to use his powers to confront evil whenever he finds it as he waits for another death at the hands of another warrior.
