The First Mages are an immortal race that came from another world (some time after the Ancients (unofficial)) centuries before King's Quest II: Romancing the Stones. Their leader, Legenimor founded Daventria (Kingdom of Daventry). Not long after, the Grand War was fought. After which most of the mages lost their immortality.
Around one thousand years ago, Legenimor, the First King, lead the arrival of their kind from another world (perhaps the stars) and founded Daventry. Legenimor soon became the most powerful ruler the world had ever known, bringing both magic and civility to kingdom and surrounding lands. However, soon a terrible war broke out, the Grand War, and many people died. Legenimor blamed himself, and committed his power to the stars, becoming mortal in the process (and apparently taking the immortality from most his race with him). Legenimor's brother Morgeilen disappeared during the war. He later became The Father, and began preparing for an upcoming Ascension, and regaining his brother's power was an important part of that plan. He hoped to surpass his brother, becoming the most powerful ruler the world had ever known since the days of the Ancients.
All of the descendents of the First Mages, were mages themselves. Count Caldaur is one of the mage descendents. King Edward the Benevolent was a descendent of the line of Granthithor, and Graham is distantly related as well.
Behind the scenesEdit
The legends are mixed, some references in the AGDI games seem to separate the Ancients and the First Mages as separate groups. While some of the other references seem to tie them together.
