Personal History Born in Copenhagen, Earth in 2354, Magnus is the youngest child of Spencer and Brigitte Temple, and younger brother to Nycolas. His father, then a Commander in Star Fleet, took an extended leave of absence to raise the young family in Denmark, where they enjoyed a relaxed, fun-filled life in this bourgeois artisan city, and so that their mother could continue to work as a European and United Earth leader.

When they were old enough, Magnus and Nyx would visit their grandparents on Betazed, which Magnus enjoyed thoroughly. He loved travelling in Star Fleet vessels and especially seeing his warm, loud, energetic grandmother. She instilled upon the young boy a fun, compassionate outlook on life, as well as basic training for his empathic ability. She passed when Magnus was 12 and he vowed to always live up to her image.

Magnus' mother Brigitte was a politician on Earth and was elected States Minister of Denmark in 2364, then chaired the European Union to United Earth's government for a term in 2367. Brigitte Temple was known as a progressive leader, speaking often of the need for the UFP to undertake more humanitarian missions. Magnus was a keen observer during this time, proud and encouraged by his mother's ideals.

Magnus was often in the halls of Parliament, asking far too many questions and making a clear impression of the Diplomat and politician he would become. While his parents worked, Magnus often visited his grandfather, who had returned to earth and now lived in the southern United States, while taking care of Magnus' wayward cousin Jesse as well. The three boys, Nyx, Magnus, and Jesse, loved playing in the bayous of New Orleans, and listening to granddad's war stories of fighting the Borg and the Gorn.

At 18, Magnus followed his father and grandfather's footsteps into Star Fleet Academy, though followed his mother's passion for humanitarianism. He majored in Diplomacy and minored in Federation history. He joined the student council and was elected Council Chair in his third year. In his final year, he was invited to address the United Federation of Planets Diplomatic Corp Annual Delegation in San Francisco, Earth.

He graduated with honours in 2375. Due to his impressive networking and hard work, he was selected as a Junior Envoy within Star Fleet HQ, shadowing several chief diplomats. Following this, he took several different postings throughout Federation territory, gaining experience and skills as a focused and professional Diplomat. He rose through the ranks of Envoy to Aide and then Diplomatic Officer.

After many years working on his career, Magnus missed his family and home. In 2380, Magnus took a break from Star Fleet to work as a consultant to the then-States Minister of Denmark, coming home to Copenhagen and the European Parliament. He was elected for a term as a junior minister in 2381 and became Assistant Foreign Minister, also working with the United Earth Aid Council. He was seen as potential future leader, much like his mother, but Magnus wanted to return to Star Fleet where he believed he could do greater good.

After an incident at Marienborg, Magnus resolved to rejoin active service in 2385. He used his political skills to advance his career, now focused on rising through the UFP Diplo Corp. He gained the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade at Federation marine base Camp Kovar. He briefly returned to Earth for the funeral of his beloved grandfather, before being reassigned to the USS Vanguard as Chief Diplomatic Officer.

When the Vanguard was moved to the Gamma Quadrant, Magnus chose to stay in the Inconnu Region with the 72nd Fleet and was assigned to Deep Space 12 as Federation Ambassador.
