Character Objectives
: Being brought back in the modern era John wishes to continue his work and finish deciphering the Book of Soyga. He's curious about the advancements in both magic and science humanity has made and wants to add that knowledge to his already extensive library. Bio
: A prodigy of the sciences and a devotee to God, John Dee was an occultist, magus and mathematician who served as Queen Elizabeth I's adviser during the Elizabethan era. An avid book collector, he amassed the largest library in England at the time and came into be possession of several powerful magical texts, including the Book of Soyga. Collaborating with the scryer and alchemist, Edward Kelly, he claimed to have rediscovered the language of angels in hopes of finding the universal language of creation that would unite humanity before the end times. He claimed to have communed with the Archangel Uriel and asked it about the nature of the Book of Soyga. Uriel revealed that the book had been given to Adam in Paradise and could only be fully understood by the Archangel Michael. In truth, however, Dee had a hard time distinguishing angels from demons, and so became an accidental demonologist who was easily deceived and lead astray.
His more 'fantastical' exploits should not overshadow his mundane ones. The man was a genius and the leading expert of navigation in his time leading to the European Age of Discovery. He even coined the term 'British Empire'.Weapon

*Innocent Monster (Prospero) (C)
: An attribute possessed by Servants whose true history and existence have been distorted by monstrous reputations and gossips they accrued across the course of their life and thereafter, without concern for the actual person's will or appearance. Due to the reputation he gained later in life with his growing obsession with the occult, this John Dee has appeared as the dark mystic most people characterise him as rather than the pious man of God and scientist he was throughout most of his life. He has take on a resemblance to the manipulative, anti-theistic sorcerer from Shakespeare's The Tempest
