Edit 2 : voting sigil

Looks pretty good. Can you do a write up for a bit of history. Try to tell me about Juturnus and why he owes you favors.

I'm assuming that Optimistic and Ambitious flaws are major.

Sure will do the history and appearance asap.

Only Optimistic is major i'll edit this.

Favors is a flaw I actually owe him favors :wink:

What? A Tremere? In our Opiddum?! Who approved this!?

Let's hope this is in character talk and not players thought..

A bit of background...

He was born under the name Hakan. He is a cuman boy whose tribe fled to Hungary after the battle of kalta when he was 3. Even after he moved, he was sheltered from the outside, because he is the child of the Shaman. His father had great hope for him and tried to teach him cuman culture despite our migration.

The boy was found when he began to have accidents because of her emerging gift, he was 7.
At 10 when he was considered mature enough, he received an Initial training as assessor and soon after gauntlet worked initially mostly with senior magi in need of a trusted person to deal with people affected by the gift.

He was then given the task to try to get informations on what seemed like a new hedge wizard tradition settling into the tribunal, attracted by the absence of "witch hunting". He failed this mission hard, was trapped and almost leaked them the secret to parma magica. He could escape his fate thanks to the intervention of Juturnus of Tremere but He had antagonized them against the order already. Juturnus kept most of the story for himself and only reported that the contact hasn't worked and I owe him my reputation in the House for this.

Because of this he couldn't refuse when he asked him to join the Oppidium Héviz. Despite its reputation, he's certain everything is going to be alright.

He's rather handsome and a rather straightforward and optimistic guy so thanks to his Gentle gift he usually gets on well with the servants.When he travels outside his Oppidium, He's often found riding a nice light grey horse. He's almost always carrying a small circular leather bag carrying his Astrolab. He's often dressed in a Cuman fashion with their typical hat and tunic unless taking part to a formal meeting with magi.

Yes...hope...nothing amiss here... :smiling_imp:

Welcome aboard!
