Plot

Based upon the book series "Findlaich's Redwood Limbo", the series is centered around Iain Findlaich, an honorably discharged military doctor from Athlone, Ireland, who is looking for a new purpose in life, namely a job.

Down on his luck, Iain finally finds a job as a doctor at a distant island off-land called Redwood. Unknown to him, Redwood is actually the only refuge for mages and other rare beings. In short, it is the only place where magic exists. Upon arriving in Redwood, he starts to learn about the island's history, even learning how to study it's magic. But, a threat arrives in the form of Iron Bay, a militaristic organisation on a mission to enslave all mages for unlimited power. Because of this, he is now forced to fight against his own kind, to preserve a lost art from fading.
