Magi'i of CyadorBook - 2000
Lorn is a talented boy born into a family of Magi'i. A fastidious student of remarkable talent, Lorn lacks the single most coveted attribute required of a Magus of Cyador, unquestionable loyalty: Lorn is too independent for his own good. So Lorn is forced to become a lancer officer, and he's sent to the frontier to fight off the all-too-frequent barbarian raids - a career that comes with a fifty percent mortality rate.
