Karel Wotan's story begins in antiquity, when a female Viking who mastered the art of sorcery. Gaining power in her male-dominated society, she pushed her abilities to allow her memories to pass from lifetime to lifetime as she reincarnated. But she realized that to grow her powers beyond a certain point, she would have to steal more power.
She came to Egypt and tried to take the power of Nabu, the wizard of Fate, but he defeated her. Realizing that she would strike at him and his successors, he marked her, so that her skin would always be grey, and immediately killed her.
Over the centuries Wotan continued to reincarnate in both male and female bodies until the present day.
