Magnus is perhaps best known for defeating a being known as The Gentleman (amongst other names). Many had attempted this before, but only managed to temporarily imprison him. However, Magnus, armed with a weapon called The Sword of Severing and possessing The Gentleman's true name was able to destroy the fiend once and for all.
