Born in St Petersburg, Russia in 1982.
Son of Dmitry and Maria Nikitich he was destined to Greatness. He had a nasty encounter with Tragedy when after turning 9, a train accident took away his parents´s life; luckily both him and his younger sister were adopted by a japanese couple who used to be friends with the Nikitich: Takumi and Reika Takariyama. Takumi was one member of the Japanese embassy in Russia and met the Nikitich by chance during an art event that took place in the embassy. Feeling pity towards the orphan children and learning they had no other living relatives who would take them, the Takariyamas intervened.
Magnus passed to be renamed Yuu (although he kept insisting to be addressed by his original name) and easily adapted to the Japanese culture.He assimilated the language at an incredible speed stunning everybody. Only half a year after being brought to Tokyo he was enrolled to Odaiba´s elementary school.
Not only he was able to follow through the complicated study system , Magnus proved to be born a genius. Like a storm, he ended surpassing everybody when it ´s about the exam rankings and much to Ryo Akiyama´s annoyance, who until then ranked 1st , he got on the Top. His popularity grew faster and wilder than a bush fire because the Russian also shone in sports and arts as well, Magnus ´s popularity rocketed when it was found out he taught himself how to play the piano and the Takariyamas believed he was fated to be Rubinstein and enrolled the kid into music lessons.
Magnus, though, was never quite sure what he was going to become in the future and sometimes felt a bit overwhelmed by his own abilities. When he´s not doting on his little sister he usually hanged around Tia Yagami´s circle. Tia was the first girl to welcome him in class and became the best friends since then; Ryo Akiyama , who was still annoyed about his stolen spot, ended becoming his frenemy. Ryo considered him his rival and at the same time a close friend and would often compete against each other toward everything.
He´s also a Dreamer and a Visionary.
He would often dream about visiting strange places and being frequented by a mysterious angel. And every time he woke up from those dreams, he would write down everything he saw in a notebook, leading him to uncover theories about time and space. It was at that time, a month before a science fair at school, that Magnus would have the strangest and liveliest dream of all:
The mysterious angel would show him the Multiverse and present him a challenge which him, a bit lightly, accepted. When he woke up he would find a strange bracelet attached to his right wrist!
He was told it was a digivice and if he was able to unlock it, he would gain the ability to open portals to different universes. Feeling energized, Magnus worked hard to discover its secrets. At first, it was the most excruciating challenge he ever faced because the bracelet refused to open up until the lad played the piano and responded to the notes. Figuring there was a link between music and the digivice´s data, Magnus developed Outworlds, a strange machine which was based in both the digivice´s properties and music and which would be the invention he would show in the fair. But during the first trail, much to his younger sister´s horror, while a gate was effectively summoned Magnus disappeared and never made it back…
