Brief History: Daegan was born the second son of Lord Thorneton and expected not to inherit his father’s lands. He spent his years from seven (7) to fifteen (15) as a Page for Lord Camryn Davan where he spent a good deal of time being shadowed by Lord Camryn's daughter, Kerensa. Instead of telling her father, he kept his mouth shut and invited her along, discovering she would continue to shadow him anyway.

He returned to his father's estates and remained there for another year when he finally left, growing bored with the life of a nobel and tired of his father's critisism. He has spent the majority of his adult life as a hired sword or working with those in the Military caste and was slowly accepted as one of them. He traveled for two years until he was hired by the Amherst family where he remained for a total of five years, two of those years he spent as Dane Amherst's personal body guard until he was called home during the story of Shattered Web when his brother was killed.

During the story of Scorched Earth, his father was wounded and was paralized from the waist down from being stuck by falling debree during an earthquake. Because he could not continue with his responsibilities he relunctantly passed the title of Lord to Daegan.

In the story Hell's Fire, Daegan asked Kerensa to marry him as a way out of the arranged marriage that she did not know about and left it open so that if she wanted it the marriage could be anulled by her, not him. However the marriage was never anulled and the man she was suppose to marry, Dane Amherst, was later killed by her uncle.
