- "Three more on my shift threatened to quit today. Candy asses."
- —Lannis Cadogan[src]
Lannis Cadogan (died 2014) was a mining boss in Heddwich, who died in a pyromancy incident.
Born in Heddwich, Pennsylvania, Cadogan met his wife by letters, claiming he was a rich man and a captain of industry. Upon arriving, the girl discovered that Lannis was actually a middle worker class mining boss in a small Welsh community.
Incidents at a Mine
One day, when three more men on his shift threatened to quit, Lannis returned to his home in a bad mood, being suspicious of his wife and drinking Glencallan scotch. He proceeded to drink even enetering the shower, during which he noticed that water switched to a liquified coal. Cadogan was then burned alive by an unknown force.
Cadogan's death was deemed suspicious by occultist John Constantine, also coinciding with a Scry map's patterns. John arrived in Heddwich in time for Cadogan's funeral, also visting his wake with Hearty Cuisine Chicken Dinner to interview his wife on the subject.
As Constantine confronted Cadogan's wife and while being attacked by controlled Coblynau, noted to her that they were spirits of dead miners and Lannis was also a dead miner. He then proceeded to summon Lannis with a spell. Bursting from the ground as a Coblynau, Lannis then proceeded to grab his wife and kill her by dragging into the ground.
