Hagen was a blond serf from northern Detina. During the Civil War, King Avram proclaimed freedom for serfs in areas his army occupied, so Hagen took his wife Corliss and their four children and ran to the swamps, where they came upon soldiers commanded by Captain Cephas. Cephas hired Hagen as wood-cutter and Corliss as cook for the regiment. So desperate and delighted were the two at having money of their own, they did not realize it was only a fraction of the salary a dark haired Detinan would have received.
