What is in a name:

Minous enunciated: My-nuss; Mancer enunciated: Manzir;

Mancer(Magus; Mage; Magic Wielder), magic sculptor, one who shapes Magical power or Mana to ones will;

i.e Necromancer: Necro meaning death, so a Necromancer is one who wields, channels, controls and bends death-magic to their will.

I am a Necromancer of the Omega Order, first & foremost. Though I do enjoy manipulating other Planeswalkers minds & Mana.

I was born in Urborg, abandoned & left to die. I was rescued & raised by Thrull necromancers until I was a teenager. Then I was put into the care/custody of the Ebon Hand. Where I learned about & became to idolize and almost worshiping Lim-Dul. Eventually becoming one of his multiple apprentices. Not advancing fast enough for my liking, so I stole an Icy Manipulator, a Mox Jet, some Lotus Petals, & a Zuran Orb. I fled to the Ivory Tower(s) in Terisia to further my studies & under the shadows of night perform my experiments. To learn ancient Dark Rituals unlocking the secret of Necropotence.

When my Master Lim-Dul, The Necromancer was defeated. I was in utter shock. I felt that my Master had been betrayed. Fueled w/ rage & remorse I hunted down & slayed Lim-Dul's paladin. Not finding the answers I sought I hunted down The Lord of Tresserhorn. Raised his stronghold to the ground defeating him. In his last dying words, he said "It, was, ...Lashrac...

My utter disbelief, rage, confusion, & raw Necromatic-rage ignited my Spark! Everything went Red then Azure, & eventually Black.

I awoke in a cave. Years later, on a wasteland filled with pockmarks with Nectro-mechanical creatures all around some with vast dark Mana radiating off them. In the distance I could see castles & vast armies.

I attempted to tap into my own energies, it was like trying to pull an Aurochs w/ chains from a bog. Then out of an explosive & silent black cloud of Mana lined in Azule Mana he stood before me. Tall, dark, & radiating energy, he said to me "It's Minous, Minousmancer?" which I replied by squinting at him. He then said "we need to go, Phyrexia is not safe for you." he grabbed my left shoulder and in a swirling ink blot like that of a Kraken the world we were in was gone, in the blink of an eye.

We were transported to what I later found out was Innistrad. He explained to me what Planeswalking was & how I had become a Planeswalker. He told me that this plane would help me reconnect with my access to Black Mana. He gave me a Grimoire of the Dead, a Ghoulcallers Bell, & a Witchbane Orb. Then planeswalked away. Alone, mildly confused yet excited about the possibilities of what my new powers could mean I wandered Innistrad. Gathering my strength, harnessing my powers. Testing my capabilities. Raised an army of undead and made a few packs with some Werewolf tribes. We held back the disease infected humans who had contracted vampirousy. We were triumphant. We reached a treaty.

One day I felt this massive pull to leave, I didn't understand it. it was like my Mana wanted me to go somewhere I just couldn't understand it. It went on for months. I set up a consultation w/ the only other Planeswalker I knew. I knew of Liliana, she by then was infamous in the Necromatic circle of Innistrad. I talked with Sorin, he told me to ignore it. Said it was probably just my powers adjusting...

So, one day the pull just stopped. the Demonlord Ormendahl Had taken Griselbrand's place. Sorin & Liliana had both left Innistrad. There was nothing left for me & I could hear the cries of the dead calling me. A silvery, Black & Blue fog the color of gun powder enveloped me & like that I Planeswalked for the first time finding myself on Theros, where I learned of the War of the Spark as well as the defeats of Yawgmoth & Bolas.

Learning about Yawgmoth & his defeat before I ever woke on Phyrexia became a focus of intense study of mine...

Now equipped with my Soul-Guide Lantern, a Nyx Lotus, & my recently acquired Zagoth Crystal, That Gray Merchant of Asphodel had no idea the power the Crystal contains. I've just Planeswalked into an area known as Zagoth, on the Plane of Ikoria. This everglade like marshland overflowing w/ Dark & powerful reserves of Mana. I've met some strange & interesting creatures. So far I'm only able to focus the Mana here through the Crystal.

I've summoned a familiar. His name is Umori, he is a collector of power stones like myself. He has collected a Zagoth Crystal as well. He claims to be from Indatha, which is another land here on Ikoria. Currently I'm studying Zagoth & it's energies. Soon I will have full access to the powers of this land.

Maybe I will turn this place into my New Ice-Age. An Ice-Age of Ikoria

Planes/Times where my power is Highest: Dominariaā€ˇ during the Ice Age Innistrad through it's Dark Ascension and Restoration Theros' Underworld invasion of Nyx In areas such as: Zagoth; W/ Allies/Spies in Esper; Azorius; Golgari; Orzhov;

I like Black, usually Suicide-Black. Because raw it's power at a price of your soul and life. ..

I like Blue, because it's complicated, it's manipulation of Mana and schemes, & disruption of well laid plans. It's the color of precognition & control. ...

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.
