The Deptford Mice Wiki

In life I was Magnus Zachaire, a man of much learning. Or so it amused me to think.
―Magnus Augustus Zachaire

Magnus Augustus Zachaire was a 16th century English wizard who discovered the formulas for the Philosopher's Stone and the Elixir of Life. He was called back from the grave and his spirit imprisoned in a bottle by Elias Theophrastus Spittle, who was determined to learn his secrets.


In his life, Magnus Zachaire was a noted mystic and conjuror who was very wealthy. He discovered the formula for the Philosopher's Stone and also created the Elixir of Life. Eventually his reputation as a dabbler in the black arts incurred the wrath of the London mob, and one morning they dragged him out of bed and drowned him in the River Fleet. He died because water is one of the two Achilles' heels of anyone who drinks the Elixir of Life (with the other being fire).
