Am I the only one that saw the true reference in Morgyn?

Like, I have seen a lot of people saying that he's a reference to Sabrina (which for me makes no sense), also seen/feel that he's a reference to Newt Scamander (when he first enters the portal, he's innocence, his clothes, etc), but NOBODY ever mentioned how much he looks like Michael Langdon from AHS: Apocalypse. Like... He was innocent and all of that, had a fast ascension to being specifically Sage fo the Untamed, his color choices, his hairstyle and clothing, his non-binary looks, the fact that the previous Sage of the Untamed is nowhere to be found inside the game... He's cute and all, but he looks evil.
Am I the only one to see this?

    Oh wow, I do see it now. It's the smirk and the raised eyebrow, too.

    Oh I saw it too ... that's one of my favorite shows and I agree, probably because that's how I want to see him.
    However I think he's more of a merged character pulling from other fandoms too even if it's just looks and dress style ect like:

    There's sabrina looks and potter stuff ect. I'd love to think the devs were all AHS fans though :).

    I'm so confused, I honestly don't see Newt in him at all

    Same. Maybe more of a young Grindelwald.

    I don't watch AHS so I don't know what kinda character that guy is. I still see Morgyn as Newt. Or a Newt wannabe. LOL.

    It's mainly his outfit and hairstyle.

    Just like Caleb Vatore is a reference to Tristan from AHS hotel.

    @Karon I haven't seen AHS Apocalypse but just looking at that pic has me convinced he was a major inspiration with Morgyn!
  • LadyKynLadyKyn Posts: 2,590 Member
    Haven't seen AHS but the resemblance is uncanny. Was my theory that the other sage 'disappeared' so suddenly and he ascended to sage of the untamed.

    Never heard of the show... but from your screenshot and description I think you're right haha
  • mikamika Posts: 1,570 Member
    I don't see him in any character and I dont see his appeal at all...
  • fruitsbasket101fruitsbasket101 Posts: 797 Member
    Oh my jeez yes!! I love AHS and he definitely reminds me of Michael Langdon!
    Have a super fantastic awesome splendid amazing day! -TheQxxn

    Im used to Langdon with really long hair, and because Morgyn isn't evil (like Langdon)...Im thinking Newt was the main inspiration.

    @BlueR0se I know, he spent more time with long hair on the show. Would've been really interesting if the in-game Morgyn had a longer hairstyle we don't have in the game yet, just to prove that the version we are playing is after the trailers. Some things got confusing, like the sages from the trailers are way more cooler and stylish than what we have, especially Simeon... but...
    Yeah, I also think Newt wast the main inspiration, as Morgyn's personality is far from being evil, but i kinda saw a shift in his personality. In the frist trailer he was all innocent and newbie, but by the end of the second one he was in all of his boss attitude.

    @LadyKyn Also, now that you mentioned it, in AHS he's part of a male's only coven and they had a feud with the female's only coven going on.

    I finally managed to edit and replace the lame sages that came with Realm of Magic

    The new Practical Sage, Simeon Silverstar.

    Turned the L Faba into the witch from the trailer, who I renamed Aine La Croix, the Mischief Sage

    And surprisingly, I decided to keep Morgyn but edited his features into less of a generic white dude and more fitting an Untamed Sage

    Newt never dressed like a girl. I think Morgan magically merged with Aine.

    They look pretty cool. Also, I have seen everyone naming this female sage from the trailer as Aine, but don't know where did everybody saw that she's named Aine. Do you happen to know?

    Eh, I still think he looks like Dorian Gray from Sabrina. But, I've never seen AHS to get a feel for Michael...
    But, I literally just based it off of his hair and the fact that he's a warlock lol

    They do look a lot alike but I doubt it was intentional as AHS does have a high rating due to the subjects in the series and not sure how many people even watch it. I say there isn't an single source of inspiration though, but draws inspirations from various stories, tells, myths, etc..

    Let's leave it out with the "agenda" comments. They never ever end well.
  • sgemmsgemm Posts: 33 Member
    Wow! I knew something about Morgyn looked familiar, they seriously are twins. He also looks a lot like Oscar Wilde to me. It's really cool though, Realm of Magic definitely took a lot of inspiration from popular witchy media and you can see it in a lot of places.

    Never seen that show, but I guess it does look a lot more like him than Newt Scamander.
