Sorry for taking so long to get my character ready. I can't post in the saga forum so I'll post here instead. I suspect Iâ€™ll probably have to make some changes (I havenâ€™t finished catching up on the saga thus far, and have only a passing familiarity with the region in question), but hereâ€™s what I have so far.
Please let me know what you think. Preferably by PM
Ponz filius Bertram ex Flambeau
Born in a remote farming village in Catalonia, I experienced the same joys and sorrows as any other young boy growing up in my village, blissfully unaware of the Order of Hermesâ€™ existence. This all ended on a cool autumn day in my 10th year.
I was out in the fields watching over my familyâ€™s sheep trying to decide which should be put to the knife before winter when two large men wearing red caps sprang upon me and before I could cry for help, thumped me on the head with a large knobby club. When I awoke, I had been sewn inside a heavy sack which stunk of cabbages. I struggled to free myself, but one of the Red Caps noticed and threatened to beat me if I moved again.
Finally after what seemed like days we arrived at a moldy-looking covenant where I was introduced to Macera ex Tytalus who kept me imprisoned as a Lab Assistant for 10 long years (and inflicted severe mental and physical abuse in the process). Eventually Macera was marched after being convicted of murdering a Quaesitor. Bertram of Flambeau who slew my former master, opened my arts and started my apprenticeship.
Bertram, despite being a hoplite of great renown was a mediocre teacher, but I was already well versed in Magic Theory from my days as a Laboratory Assistant. Iâ€™ve recently completed my Gauntlet and my immediate goal is to find a Covenant and commission a much-needed Longevity ritual. Iâ€™ve heard that the Covenant of Andorra is looking for new magi and have decided to present myself for consideration.
