Character Name: "Black" Angus McAfee (pronounced MAC-a-fee)
Group: A Bar (which he owns...I am considering one of the current clubs being mentioned recently or a rival club to Lorne's new place...possibly the bar where Adam works...this is flexible.
Position: He owns or is a major owner of the bar.
Description: Angus is a huge barrel of a man with thick mucsles borne of slinging kegs of beer and cases of liquor. Hi has a big bushy red mustache and a shock of red hair that practically stands straight up from his head. He has teeth that while not crooked are gapped and somewhat yellowed from the coffee he drinks and the cigarettes that he chain smokes. His green eyes are clear and bright (beneath his wild red eyebrows) and his stare has been known to stop even brave men in their tracks.
Personality: Angus realizes that the role of bartender is something akin to the ancient role of 'local witch' - a confidant with a little dose of something to aid you. Within Slainte hangs a familiar sign - a wind battered wooden sign with a faded painting of an iron cauldron that had once belonged to his mother back in Scotland nearly 600 years ago. He does a small trade in potions, elixirs, brews, special protective charms and the occasional alchemical transformation, but his major trade comes from his fabulous scientific mixology. He can turn water into the finest wine. He can turn wine into the richest blood. He can create holy water by the gallon and he makes the best margaritas this side of the Mexican border. Angus has picked up assorted things over his lifetime that he held in previous lives - books, paintings, letters and such, but he has re-acquired them each time, not passed them from life to life. So many things have passed through his hands in his many lives (nearly 20 identities over 585 years with an average life of 30 years each!!) he has a good chance of - if he didn't own it - at least knowing something about it. While Angus is willing to share the fruits of his knowledge - he is very reluctant to share his true knowledge with anyone. He does not talk of apprentices, pupils, student or adepts. He does not trade alchemical, potion or brew recipes with anyone (although chemistry is another story). He will not collaborate on brewing or spells (although he is certainly willing to manufacture needed ingredients - he just wont participate in rituals or spells). And he never never never talks about his failures with anyone. And there have been mistakes.
Powers: None. No really, Angus has no magical or Psychic abilities. What he has is knowledge - the kind of knowledge that comes neither cheap nor easy. His greatest secret - that of eternal youth cost the life of his mother. His second secret - that of the Philospher's stone - has also cost him dearly on two occasions.
