HistoryEdit

Mathers was born in London and became a member of the Hand of God were he was an exorcist, and then a Latin teacher in William's school (Stratford).[3] After leaving the Hand of God, he proclaimed himself the "Count of Glenstrae".[4] Not long after, he appeared before William, offering to teach him magic. He left when William told him he'd think about his offer, but not before seemingly effortlessly breaking a barrier that surrounded the estate. He is then seen in Stratford as a Latin teacher, where he starts teaching William and Isaac magic.

When the war is over and William graduates from Stratford, Mathers also leaves the school and gives Isaac permission to use his name as a pseudonym, due to the fact that Mathers was not his real name and he would use a new one soon.[5] Isaac says that was the last time him or William ever saw Mathers again, but he also mentions he may have encountered him during the World War I.[6]
