Magadan was a young man from the ruling family of the Voroshk world who appeared in Soldiers Live. His father was the brother of the patriarch known as the First Father. Magadan had a very poor relationship with his father, who likewise hated Magadan's uncle the First Father.

Soldiers Live[]

Magadan, Sedvod, Gromovol, and Arkana abandoned their world to become guests of the Black Company. They chose to flee after their world's shadowgate was unintentionally blasted open by their patriarchs, and would soon be overrun by killer shadows. The Company leadership accepted them but demanded that they hand over their priceless shefsepoken (magic robes) and rheitgeistiden (flying posts). They all expected to be treated like royalty, and were shocked when Croaker educated them about their new status at the bottom rung. They kept a distance from Shukrat, another Voroshk teenager who proactively integrated with the Black Company.

Magadan had a healer's touch which Croaker wished to nurture. But he could not help Sedvod, who fell ill and would later die. It was later revealed that Sedvod had been cursed by the Khadidas.

On the night of the Battle of the Middle Ground, Gromovol, Arkana, and Magadan decided to steal their shefsepoken and rheitgeistiden to flee from their new, dangerous, alien surroundings. The three distracted some guards with a primitive disorientation spell, and Gromovol murdered them against Magadan's explicit protests. Before the three could make their escape or retrieve their magic artifacts, Company soldiers discovered the murders, raised the alarm, and retaliated. Gromovol was seriously injured, Arkana was raped, and Magadan was killed. Of Magadan's surviving relatives: Gromovol would later be imprisoned in the cave of the ancients whereas Arkana would rise to be co-Annalist of the Company alongside Shukrat.
