After the magicians have returned from the village and reentered the council chamber, one of the grogs announces the arrival of a new guest, and shortly afterwards the man enters the room. The first impression is not very remarable, as Petrulus is of rather slight build and more than a bit clumsy, even so he has a friendly look on his face (should any of the magicians have their Parma down, they might feel a wave of spontaneous sympathy, but that seems unlikely). After getting an invitation to speak he introduces himself to the council members in a pleasant and melodious voice, using eloquent Latin, which certainly is able to enchant people withlout the use of any magic:
I am Petrulus ex Miscellanea, Filius of Parvulus ex Miscellanea, who was brought into the order by Justus’ esteemed pater, after he had gained a reputation as formidable wizard through his own studies. Four years ago I passed my gauntlet and started to roam the German lands in order to learn more about the magic of traditions outside the order and to integrate those powers they wield into my own arts. Now it is time for me to rest awhile amongst my peers within the order, to renew my studies of hermetic and classic lore and my magical arts, to write reports on my research and to show the order the wonders found outside its traditional approach to magic. - I certainly wouldn’t dream of insulting the Bonisagus and the other founders, for the achievements of hermetic magic greatly surpass those of any other magic tradition, but I have learned that there are many things out there which are worth to look at in order to improve the arts. Having been apprenticed to my master before his joining of the order and having been far on his way of magic use by then I couldn’t learn the arts of Bonisagus, and so it is my fate to show all those who follow his path a bit of what is left to be integrated. Now your covenant, situated in a wild area, dedicated to research into the local magical secrets and traditions and not yet crippled by the stiffness found in many older covenants, seems to be an ideal place to start my work on that agenda. Here I can easily think of ways, my arts can be put to good use for the covenant and its servants, and the charta seems to show a spirit of equality among mages that encourages fruitful cooperation. All said and done, I would like to join your ranks, either as a long term guest under the Rhine tribunal’s rules of hospitality or – preferably – as a member of this covenant. And now I am standing in front of you, dear sodales and am willing to accept your decision or to answer questions you want to ask previous to your decision.
After this speech Petrulus becomes quiet and looks confidently into the face of his sodales.
OOC: Petrulus isn’t rude, he has no active magic on himself to improve his chances but believes his natural talents to be sufficient.
