Forgall Manach was the author of Forgall's Bestiary. Forgall was an Avatara that served with Mazzarin. He was a powerful avatara but also a powerful writer and scholar. Forgall mourned the loss of Mazzarin when he was slain by the Watcher--Forgall lived a long healthy life and died at a very old age. His teachings and scholarly work were admired throughout history and his historical mantle was picked up by Antero several ages later.
