A question about Magnus  
Hello guys!

I was hoping someone could do some research for me.

I recall that somewhere in the Chronicles Lestat mentions that before Magnus successfully became a vampire, he experimented by drinking the blood of captured vampires. I can not specifically remember if it was stated how exactly he was turned (it's been a while since I last read), did he even have a maker? I also remember references to half human/vampire hybrids.

Magnus stole his immortality.

'A catacomb I saw, a rank place. And a white vampire creature waking in a shallow grave. Bound in heavy chains he was, the vampire, and over him bent this monster who had abducted me, and I knew that his name was Magnus, and that he was mortal still in this dream, a great and powerful alchemist. And he had unearthed and bound this slumbering vampire right before the crucial hour of dusk,.

And now as the light died out of the heavens Magnus drank from his helpless mmortal prisoner the magical and accursed blood that would make him one of the living dead. Treachery it was, the theft of immortality. A dark Prometheus stealing a luminescent fire. Laughter in the darkness. Laughter echoing in the catacomb. Eching as if down the centureies. And the ecstasy absolutely fathomless and irresistable, and then drawingto a finish."
