As a humble young man from Kenrith, Algenus had been chosen as one of the two candidates to quest for the high rulership. The Questing Beast had given him a blessed sword as the mark of its favor. Algenus and Linden both quested for years after they had been chosen. In the course of time, they fell in love, but they weren’t always questing together.
In Linden's absence, Algenus became enthralled by a witch. The witch became pregnant of Rowan and Will and killed the twins for their blood, which she intended to drink to extend her life. Linden gave up her sword's power to restore life to them and took them in as her own kids when she married Algenus. Unlike his wife, Algenus completed the High Quest and he was proclaimed as sole High ruler.
