I had a fondness for the name "Adelbert the Tyrolean" that Mark Lawford used in his Yestin chapter but I double checked the reference to learn that he was a Bonisagus from the same covenant as Yestin rather than a Gurnicus from a different one as I erroneously recalled. Vibianus is a roman name of unknown origin ie its original meaning isn't known. I think that this might be a good choice for an investigator. On second thought I was once a child and I can still see the word anus at the end of that name, and now I can’t un-see it. So I went back to plan A.
The boy who would take the name Adelbert at his gauntlet was born to a family of peasants who were bonded to a monastery in Tyrol. A monk whose responsibilities often brought him in contact with the boy took a disliking to him and, used the boy's aptitude for scholastic endeavors and his fight with a debilitating illness that shattered his previously above average strength to get him into the monastery under the supervision of less politically clever monks and out of his hair. Within the monastery he worked hard and his productivity and therefore usefulness compensated for the deleterious effects of the gift. The monks in the monastery taught the boy enough artes liberales to do his job and the boy then used this knowledge to learn everything that the books he had available could teach him. Adelbert began his apprenticeship at the age of 15. At the age of 19 he married a woman who was a grog at his covenant. Together they had three children. Just prior to his gauntlet, Adelbert’s wife died giving birth of the third of these children.
Adelbert began his life as a magus by moving himself and his three children to the Iberian tribunal where it was requested he go.
