Brom Oisín is a descendant of the lineage of the Silver Witch, and as the eldest child was originally destined to be his father’s heir. In his teens Brom fell in love with a boy, who later turned out to be a dark shifter attempting to gain access to the Oisín compound in order to bring down the magical barrier that protects the family from shifters. One night the boy got Brom drunk and took sexual advantage of him without protection. The Ebony magic in the shifters sperm invaded Brom’s bloodstream and went to war with his own Silver magic. Brom barely survived the blood poisoning, but his magic was damaged eliminating him from the succession to the power of the Silver Witch. Brom can only work his magic when creating items from silver or iron at his forge. He had become a master artisan and his non-magical work is highly sought after by collectors. His magical creations are sought after by Hunters and mages.
When his younger brother Kellan, married into the House of Beauty, he forged a special wedding present for the bride and groom, a set of silver wedding chalices that when used by the couple transformed into a single cup to represent their love and union.
When Kellan’s son Kieran was born a year after the marriage, Brom crafted Kieran’s baby rattle from silver and magic to help sooth the baby boy when he was upset. For ten years the Oisín family had little to no contact with Kellan, his wife and children. When Kellan’s wife died while hunting a dark shifter, the Oisín opened their home to the grandson/nephew they hardly knew. The distraught boy, welcomed the attention of his Uncle Brom, the first male relative to give the boy any affection aside from his father. Brom has stayed in touch with Kieran and often consults the boy of adapting spells for metalworking.
