Wizard's Leap (ReCo(He) 15) +16. The caster instantly transports himself up to 50 paces in any direction, provided he can see his destination or has an arcane connection to it. His Tailisman comes with him automatically but casting requisites are required to bring along any other clothing or equipment. this spell is very effective as a fast cast defense to escape attacks or other mishaps, and can be used for bypassing obstacles or launching surprise attacks.

Stone Palanquin (ReTe(Au) 20) +23. Enchants a stone, large enough to bear the caster, to carry him along at his mental direction. The stone moves with a speed, direction, and height above the ground that he decides (maximum speed as of a galloping horse, maximum height of 50 paces above the ground). The stone can only maneuver across terrain that can support it, and so cannot cross water or crevasses without sinking unless they are no more than 50 paces deep. If the caster directs the stone to maneuver rapidly, he may be forced to make a Dexterity + Agility roll or fall from the stone. A cloud will surround the stone and caster to hide from prying eyes.(Base 3, +1 Touch, +2 Sun, +0 Ind, +1 for enhanced effect)

Honorus was born the 3rd son of a wealthy merchant near the city of Worms in the central Rhine valley. Although ostracized as a young boy because of the Gift he was educated by his family. He was noticed by Stentorius of Fengheld and with minimal negotiations with this family, became his apprentice. Stentorius recognized a talent with math and and Honorus's natural affinity to Terram had him trained as a Tremere Architect.When he spent his two years of training in the Transylvania Tribunal, he trained with Stentorius parens Lotharius who was the Certamen master. It was Lotharius who brought out Honorus' Harenarius ability. Lotharius passed away during Honorus' final months at Coeris and it was not long after that Honorus began to be haunted by his ghost.
After his gauntlet, he was contacted by a mysterious group called the Pythagoreans. They included may Tremere architects and it seemed natural to join this cult and learn the secrets of what was called Hermetic Architecture. He has spent the past two seasons at Durenmar learning more on Parma and the arts. He was preparing to leave in the spring but received a note from his counciliarius to stay in Durenmar and await for further instructions.

Hildegard of Mercere
Hildegard’s mother was a Maga ex Mercere from the Greater Alps Tribunal specialised in longevity potions. She paid a family of potion makers from Schaffhausen to foster the child, and since her offer was generous, the family tried not to show their dislike for the weird little girl (other children were not as nice though, so her childhood was far from idyllic). Hildegard’s mother did this because she didn’t want to be burdened with a little child and because she wanted the girl to grow up in a “natural” environment. On Hildegard’s seventh birthday, her mother came to collect her – starting to teach her about becoming a master of longevity potions and profounfly influencing her magics.
About three years into the apprenticeship, shortly after Hildegard’s tenth birthday, a lab accident destroyed the lab, sent her mother into a Twilight episode from which she hasn’t returned yet. At first, the girl, who was given to Xavier of Durenmar to finish her training, didn’t seem to have suffered any injuries from the accident. But slowly, it became clear that the lab accident had stopped her aging process (virtue: unaging, flaw: dwarf), trapping her in the body of a 10-year-old child.
Puberty was hard for Hildegard, as no boy even looked at her and adults, even magi, very often treated (and still treat) her as if she still was the child she seems to be.
She tries to make herself noticed by communicating: She likes writing, because people who don’t know her physically respect her for her texts. Surprisingly, she is a good teacher, too, probably because she hasn’t forgotten what it’s like to be a child.
Now, at te age of 24, Hildegard pretends to use her looks as a disguise, even playing with it, but deep in her heart, she wants to be a normal grown-up maga.

Hildegard Ex Mercere
Age: 24, 2 years past Gauntlet

Hildegard looks like a little blue-eyed girl with two blond braids (think “Hansel and Gretel”), innocent and naïve. When she uses her growing spell, she still looks like Gretel – only taller.

*You create a full set of clothes made mainly of linen. A finesse roll determines how good and well made they look. This is a common spell for Bjornaer magi travelling in their heartbeast shape. Hildegard sometimes uses it when she changes size (she can’t create leather boots for different sizes yet, so she has to take her shoes of first!). A low finesse roll means that the size is correct but the cut and colouring of the clothes make them look like clothes for children.

Background Story:

Excerpt from the special convening of the Stonehenge tribunal, Anno Arietis 1354, transcribed from latin by Thomas of Lanchester

Following the official investigation into the death of Master Geoffrey Cethegus of Tytalus and the destruction of the convent of Black Cliff, and after hearing the testimonials and confessions of Arturous of York, we pass the following verdict:

That having committed high crimes; dabbling with the Infernal, consorting with Demons and endangering our Order through his actions, Master Aleron Merula of Tytalus is herefore cast out. He who can provide evidence of being responsible for his demise shall be awarded the sum of two rocks of vis, paid for by the Stonehenge tribunal.

That having committed high crimes; dabbling with the Infernal, consorting with Demons, meddling into the affairs of mortals and endangering our Order through his actions, Master Primus of Tytalus is herefore cast out. Having been captured and brought to stand trial by Jerome Ahenobarbus of Flambeau, Primus’s sentence will be carried out immediately, according to the verdict of this tribunal.

That the convent of Black Cliff is hereby dissolved; its stores of Vis, tomes and magical items and goods shall be transferred to the possession of the Stonehenge tribunal, following an inspection by the Quaesitores, to do with as they see fit.

That the apprentices of Primus; Arturous of York and William of London, while being a party to the above mentioned crimes, are absolved of all guilt by virtue of their uninitiated status and will be hereby handed to new masters from the Stonehenge tribunal.

That the apprentice of Aleron; Anatalia of Muscovy, while being a party to the above mentioned crimes, is absolved of all guilt by virtue of her uninitiated status. Anatalia must appear before this tribunal by year’s end, and submit to the tribunal inquiries as to her actions and whereabouts pertaining to the incident at Black Cliff.

That the judgment of this special tribunal will be conveyed to all our brethren, in every tribunal, in every province, so the above mentioned crimes shall be made known to all.

The Quaesitores shall launch an immediate investigation of masters, apprentices and known associates of the accursed Cabal of Black Cliff, to ensure that the corruption has not spread further into the midst of our Order.
We deliver our judgment before the tribunal, in good faith, this month of Aries
Quaesitore Tiberius Tuditanus

End Excerpt
Arturous is a tall athletic man in his prime. His Stone-cast features betray little emotion, while his cold, black eyes are set deep in his pale face. His raven black hair is always cropped short and his beard meticulously trimmed. He is usually clad in heavy black robes of simple design.

Background: Albirich had always been a wanderer. Always moving from town to village doing odd jobs. When he got tired he moved on. He is not sure how he had started working for the Magi but it was good food and interesting company. He was just starting to feel the wander lust again when He was asked to escort a young Magi to Germany. What a lucky break. Things could not be better.

Albirich is a Jack-of-all-trades he has some small ability in many craft but is not good in any of them. His keen intuition has given him a rosy outlook on life.

Appearance: Short, squat and wrinkled

Background: Nobody likes Diederik. Fortunately, the Magi of the house of Mercere took heart to the ugly street urchin and raised him. Now, Diederik loyally serves the redcaps in their long journeys in the Rhine. He knows the forests and mountains like no other, and would risk his life to protect those who have been so kind to him.

HISTORY (in brief):

Viscaria was raised by dwarves native to the Rhine Tribunal. The exact circumstances of her birth are a mystery to her, but she believes she was born of a union between a dwarf and a Merinita. Her pater, Norbert Gunthar, provided discipline with a heavy hand, a far cry from her Faerie Upbringing, and she often resented it. Her life in the covenant of Roznov was hard, and she often dreamed of the day her mysterious mother (who was, in these daydreams, obviously a Faerie Maga) would rescue her from her torments.

That day never came. Her first taste of freedom from the hands of her oppressive master was when she traveled to Durenmar, ostensibly to begin training with the ____ Gild as per Herr Gunthar's instructions. However, this did not go as planned.

At Durenmar, she joined the Elder Gild, hoping to learn of her mother through their resources, and maybe even learn the magic secrets of the house that she considers her birthright.

During this period, Viscaria also meets or hears of Glesig, and becomes convinced that this woman must be her mother. She dares not approach the powerful maga until she has found out more about her. Perhaps she can find evidence to lay before her mother, so that she cannot be denied her birthright.

Of course, as much as she hates her parens, Norbert Gunthar, he is also the man who raised her for 20-25 years (part of her childhood was spent as the subject of his experiments, before her Gift was discovered). He knows much about the world she now faces, and knows many secrets of Verditus Lore as well (Major Philosophic Alchemy not least among those secrets, to her mind). Who knows what insights he has gained from his reckless experimentation? He may even know more about her mysterious origins than he has previously told. She cannot so easily let go of the man, however much she tells herself she wants to. Herr Gunthar, for his part, often does not seem to understand her anger and pain, dismissing it as her faerie nature rebelling against his human guidance.

Shortly after completing her gauntlet, the Elder Gild became furious over a case of molesting the fae, and in the resultant political spin-out, Lynchessa, the youngest member of the Gild, joined a newly-forming covenant....
