Renaissance Hunter

Stuart Canmore (currently referred to as the Renaissance Hunter) was a Hunter from the Canmore family. [1] He pursued Demona during the late 15th century. He attacked her in Florence in 1495, on the same night that she stole the Medici Tablet, mounted on a hang-glider that looked like something out of one of Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks, but failed to slay her. ("Hunter's Moon" Part Two)


Real World Background

Stuart Canmore's first name is most likely a reference to the Stuart family, who became the kings of Scotland in 1371 with Robert II (1371-90). In 1603, James VI of Scotland (1567-1625) became King of England as James I (1603-25), and thereafter, the Stuarts were both Kings of Scotland and England until 1714 (except for the hiatus between 1649 and 1660, when England was a republic). James VI/I saw himself as descended both from Duncan and Canmore, and also the legendary Banquo and Fleance (which likely influenced Shakespeare's treatment of Macbeth's story).

In 1495, when Stuart Canmore encountered Demona in Florence, the Stuart King of Scotland was James IV (1488-1513).
