Jonas Marsden — First mentioned in Claimed by Shadow

Introduction Edit

Jonas Marsden, shown here as a young man, is head of the magical organization known as the Silver Circle. A demon expert, he was John Pritkin's trainer in Pritkin's early days with the Corps and remains a staunch friend. The pretty young woman with him is Lady Phemonoe, better known to Cassie by her birth name of Agnes. The former pythia, she had a long-running relationship with Marsden which they kept under wraps to maintain the image of pythian neutrality. They're shown here on an ill-fated date, when one of Jonas' famous flying cars ended up unexpectedly earthbound. ~ Take A Chance: Gallery
