It all started when Koa Turner found an odd, out of place piece of chain at a dig in Crete during the summer of his junior year in college. Prior to that the Purdue archeology student and former Seattle resident hadn't particularly thought either himself or his world unusual. By the end of a harrowing twenty hour run through a labyrinth and a desperate fight against a seemingly unstoppable minotaur those convictions had been thoroughly shaken. To say the experience had been traumatic would be an understatement, and that was made more so by the fact that whatever had happened had awoken something within him causing him to see and hear unusual things wherever he went. The world that had seemed so normal was now filled with myth and spirits and fairy tales come to life.

So what does a man do with a rock that seems to be somehow magical, a newfound set of perceptions that other people don't seem to see and a weird affinity for water? Well if that man is Koa Turner, he studies. And study he did. Over the course of the rest of the summer Koa devoured every resource he could on the supernatural, as well as family history. And to be honest, he loved it. It was fascinating, if sometimes rather frustrating and sometimes frightening. Study wasn't always a matter of researching and reading. Conversations with spirit-beings were all well and good but his first encounter with a demon nearly did him in. Still, each encounter, each bit of weirdness he survived taught him something and by the time he returned to Purdue he had a pretty decent grounding in what seemed to be the basics of how the magical world seemed to work and in particular how his pendulum and his own odd abilities seemed to work.

Graduation came and went. Koa started working in artifact authentications and acquisitions, with a side business in dealing with supernatural issues. At first he worked for the New York Museum of Natural history but after about a year he went freelance. His work took him to interesting places and allowed him to further his own interests: searching for the remains of Earth's mystical past. A number of these he collected to study, to use and to keep safe. It quickly became apparent that he was not the only one seeking ancient treasures and some of them took a particular dislike to Koa. They attacked him often violently and sometimes called him Akua, a term that seemed to refer to magically adept beings connected in some way to old Hawaiian legends.

Careful investigation allowed Koa to eventually piece together that these hostile relic hunters and magic users belonged to a group calling themselves Thelema that seemed to associate with a fraternal order called the Ordo Templi Orientis. While the OTO itself appeared to be something of a charity organization with an esoteric bent, the magi controlled beings summoned from some dark realm and left polluted mana - the energy of life and living things - in their wake. What exactly they had aligned themselves with he did not know but he heard fearful rumors of a dark power whenever he investigated, though who or what it was he could not discern for those who knew spoke of it only in whispers and never by name.

The next six or so years were quite busy ones for Koa who split his time living in New York and journeying abroad. In the former he worked freelance for museums and collectors and offered magical assistance to those who knew to ask him for it, frequently those who had no other options. In the latter he participated in digs, acquired artifacts for museums or for his own use and played a game of cat and mouse with Thelema agents around the world. Of course, one does not engage in arcane duels in cultural heritage sites without getting noticed eventually and after a particularly flashy incident in the Yucatan which involved two Thelema mages, a small horde of ancient ghosts and a jungle spirit of predation Koa found himself on SHIELD's radar.

Fortunately Koa did not in fact wind up arrested and thrown into a deep dark hole. SHIELD, in fact, was somewhat interested in recruiting him for their relatively new supernatural division. After a couple more run ins also involving Thelema he was convinced to come on as a consultant. Two years and a half years ago he signed on as an agent of WAND. The job is largely the same these days and he still even does authentication and acquisitions. After all. What better way to keep an eye out for dangerous things than be embedded in the circles that trade in them?

And what better way to keep an ear to the ground for whatever it is that Thelema is doing.
