Short History (edited from her canon to fit in the Evo!verse):
Morgan is the source of the le Fay of Arthurian legend, having been born sometime during the Sixth Century A.D. She studied sorcery under Merlin and became the High Priestess of Gaia-Danu. She was also briefly the Queen of Gorre (a British province) before becoming the Black Knight’s nemesis. Morgan used her astral projection during this time to time travel and possess a modern-day man in order to acquire the Darkhold, which resulted in the destruction of her original physical body. Morgan survived on the astral plane for centuries before reconstructing her body and finding a way to travel to modern times.
In modern times, she again sought to possess the Darkhold so that she could turn the world into one ruled by her dark magic. She fought with the Avengers and lost. As punishment, Morgan was trapped in the form of a 15 year old girl named Vivian Morgan, wearing a steel bracelet which prevents Morgan from undoing her entrapment. She ends up in the foster-care system as a ward of the state, much to her disgust. Six months later, she finds her way to Bayville, NY with a new foster-parent and is enrolled in Bayville High School. Her magical pranks end up getting her expelled from Bayville High nearly a year after Jean & Scott’s graduation, and she runs away from home to live on the streets of the town. Recently a lot of her magic has been computer-focused, as she adapts to life as a teenager.
The new apartment complex was nice, she decided. The sixteen-year-old had been living on her own for a couple of months now, using her magical abilities to con her way into her current apartment. The neighbours had gotten quiet after a few pointed “lessons” on her part, and her pet cat was settling in nicely. She had even set up a clever magical subroutine that automatically filled the cat’s food dish when it got empty so that she didn’t have to go out to buy anything. Of course, she did run out for food occasionally, to keep the neighbours from wondering about her, like her next-door-neighbour was currently doing.
“Are you sure you can manage, kiddo?” the older guy asked.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” she replied. “And I have a name, you know.”
“If you say so. How long you been living here anyways?”
“Two months and a fortnight,” she replied. “The name’s Vivian.” As much as Morgan hated her child’s body, she had at least managed to use one of her own names. It was an alias that never really saw much use, or at least it hadn’t until those damn Asgardians had trapped her in this ridiculous shape.
“That’s awful specific, Vivian.”
“How is that any of your business?”
The man grew flustered by Morgan’s rude mannerisms. She hated being talked down to, hated being treated like the child she appeared to be. A quick flick of her wrist and two whispered words activated a brief spell that made the neighbour forget what he was doing. Morgan almost sighed when he turned away and went back to his apartment. It never ceased to amaze her how quickly she had adapted to the speech patterns of the local teens; the teasing she had endured at school for “pretending” to speak like Shakespeare had swiftly corrected her speech patterns.
Additional Character Information:
Morgan/Vivian has dark purple hair and bright green eyes, and most people assume that she dyes her hair like that on a regular basis. She stands at nearly 6’ tall, and weighs roughly 140 lbs - many ask her if she has thought about being a super model. Morgan’s favourite colour is purple.
She’s snarky and frequently sarcastic, rude to adults, and tries to avoid contact with other teenagers as much as possible. A psychologist once described her as shy and introverted. Morgan has a marked interest in modern magical practices, and is currently teaching herself how to program in Java and C++. Other hobbies include disassembling the latest tech to see what makes it tick, which has made her appear to be quite the computer geek. She only does this to further her sorcery – she figures that electronics could make many of her spells much more interesting.
Her goal is to find a way to remove the steel bracelet she wears so that she can resume her normal shape and continue searching for a means of acquiring the Darkhold.
Suggestions on How Introduced: Morgan runs out for a grocery run when she bumps into either an Acolyte or an X-men, literally. Conversation leads towards whether or not she’s in school, which is no, and then the other PC tries to get her to enroll in Xavier’s or to join the Acolytes. Or, Xavier finds out there’s a teen living on her own with magical powers and sends Scott/Jean to see what’s up.
