Arcanus was an alchemist and a scientist whose former disciples included Issac Newton and Halley of the Royal Society. He stumbled upon the Elixir of Life in 1670, a potion that gave him life and youth as long as he would continue to drink it. He made more discoveries has he learned how to transform steel into silver and that was when he discovered the world of magic. He lived for more than 300 years and now aspires to became the greatest sorcerer of the entire universe by studying the ancient spells and rituals contained within the civilizations of Earth. He has sometimes acted as a hero but only for his selfish goals as he remains a villain almost all of his eternal life.
