So from now on, we make our own rules

When his plan backfired into a bloodbath in Jakarta, he had himself appointed an inspector and led a team that investigated the Old City Sanctuary. Eventually, Dr. Helen Magnus convinced him that she had sent the Crixorum back to Hollow Earth. As a result, he told her that Starfleet Security was putting him in charge of the Sanctuary Network, otherwise all of its assets in the world would be frozen. To his surprise, Magnus threw him out and threatened that if he returned, she would have him eaten. Magnus was backed into a corner by her political allies and was forced to go rogue with the global Sanctuary Network to ensure its independence. This marks the end of the Sanctuary Network's long-time affiliation with Starfleet Security. Magnus explains to Typhuss that having the Network cut of from Starfleet Security and other external influences was her plan in the first place and has decided that the changes that are coming make it necessary for them to be able to make their own rules.

Personality and traitsEdit

Helen and Charlotte kiss

Helen Magnus and Charlotte Benoit kiss in 2381

Magnus is bold and straightforward, brave and no-nonsense, yet she remains proudly true to her formal Victorian English sensibilities.

Magnus's past is long and colorful, as one would expect from a long life. However, she proves that living forever is not the best of things and finds it hard at times. She has had to bury countless friends, colleagues, and lovers, making her somewhat reluctant to let new people into her heart.

She speaks a vast number of languages, including Italian, Zulu, Japanese, Cambodian, Norwegian, French, and Spanish. Helen is fluent in Latin, being that she is a medical doctor/scientist and it's her father's favorite language. Magnus is also able to understand Arabic, Hindi (has knowledge of its ancient Urdu dialect), as well as German and can identify its Bavarian dialect(s). She is also good at reading and translating other ancient and rare languages, such as Cuneiform, Sanguine vampiris script, and Praxian lexicon.

On more than one occasion she is shown to be skilled in hand-to-hand combat.

Magnus is abundantly seen to be very comfortable in holding and being adept at using a wide variety of weaponry, including but not limited to: pistols (revolvers and semi-automatics), rifle(s), an rpg launcher, knives (fixed blade, diving, folding, switchblade, and butterfly; includes being quite deft with a scalpel), a multitude of improvised melee weapons (spear, staff, chain, batons, and hammer; less efficient with a rock and a broken off metal bar), tranquilizer guns (semi-autos firing tranq bullets; an airsoft rifle firing tranq darts), two types of Praxian energy weapons ("whip" and "vaporizer"), and all sorts of tech gizmos that Henry whips up in his weapons lab. She was able to create a bomb/explosion out of lit stores of fuel, and even used the automated assist mechanism to kill intruders. With a brief glance, Magnus can specify weapons, such as Starstreak missiles.

Helen possesses is the ability to operate almost any type of vehicle; she is able to drive cars/vans/SUV(s) and motorcycle(s), pilot planes and helicopters, and can even fully command a tank (pilot and fire).

She is technologically savvy, being able to use and repair a range of analogue and digital devices, is familiar with the Sanctuary's computer system, and can perform piggy-backed hacks. She can get severely damaged and parted computer systems to operate again powered with batteries, as well as able to boost a crashed helicopter's radio distress signal using the inside walls of the borehole of an abandoned oil rig, and can send a long-wave transmission out of old disused radios attached to solar panels. She can also quickly figure out the UI of both Praxian and Vampire technologies.

One of Helen's most impressive talents is the ability to recreate tech devices after only seeing and handling them for a brief period of time: she was able to have Henry recreate the stunner weapon she encountered in the Guardian's alternate timeline. When Helen and Will were trapped in Carentan, she was able to successfully recreate a jerry-rigged version of Adam Worth's time nodes to nullify the time dilation bubble even though she never actually physically spent time working on one of Adam's nodes (Henry and Nikola did; whom the audience can infer relayed their findings to her).

In an implanted perfect dream world, Magnus is an at-home freelance painter who doesn't show her work publicly at art galleries, but instead prefers to sell her work privately to buyers through her agent.

Helen prefers the term lovers rather than boyfriend and girlfriend when dating someone. One issue she was particually touchy about being dismissed as simply a "bureaucrat". Magnus is bisexual.[1] (Sanctuary)
