Cygna was one of the original “second-generation” magi who answered Jamie Lannister’s call for new magi in 1213.

In 1221, Cygna was asked by Ardea (who holds the Swan Seat at Crintera) to investigate the disappearance of her heir-apparent Leona. As Cygna had also heard that Leona’s covenant, Gallus Florensis, was looking for new members and she was feeling homesick for jolly old England, Cygna decided to move there while she investigated. Unfortunately, a little more than a year later, she learned that Leona was, indeed, dead and not in final twilight as had been assumed.

She stayed for Stonehenge’s Tribunal (which was actually quorate, for a change), where they ratified the Wizard’s March that had been called on Adorjan Megidézó. Cygna, a few months after the Tribunal, had already grown tired of the persecution she faced from the princeps of Gallus Florensis (who felt that she was lower than low for being “Leona’s creature”), decided that she truly belonged in Phoenix after all, and returned to Iberia in Winter of 1222.
