A magus of considerable power, he got into some trouble with someone or other who was a bit more powerful and the woman he was in love with was bound to him. As a result, the two of them are occupying the same body and can never again see or touch each other. One side effect of this curse, of course, is that the mysterious, trenchcoat-wearing mystic can change at will into an attractive young lady.
Possesses a certain affinity with Arcadia, land of the faeries, and can travel there. He's the occasional colleague of John Constantine, the Phantom Stranger, Mr. E., and Tim Hunter.
