Victor Highcastle is fresh out of Magic training and out on the streets of 1889 Chester, England. He tries to meld his magic with the new technologies popping out at this time. The elders of the Chester coven scoff at Victor’s idealism towards technology, they think magic can provide all they need. Victor wants to use the combination of magic and technology to help the world. Being that Victor is meddling in a new form of magic, you can expect things to go wrong. Now then, Mister Highcastle and the basic plot has been described. But there isn't really a central conflict. Could someone please help my brainstorm some villains I could flesh out into worthy adversaries?
