Gherardo’s parents were taken in a pirate raid, leaving him at the mercy of church charity. While other orphans scuffled over the meager scraps that sufficed to keep the orphanage barely afloat, Gherardo curried favor and won rewards from the staff by his quiet and studious application to his chores, and avoiding the trouble that surrounded those who followed Mary. After years of drudgery and misery, his diligence paid off when he was among those sent to Domus Aureus in 1220 to help with their staffing shortfall. His initial misgivings at the blatant use of magic were laid to rest when he saw how Father Ratzinger tacitly accepted Antonius. Gherardo observed how close Ratzinger and Ismael were, leading to his asking for, and being accepted as Ismael’s apprentice gamekeeper, a practice he had some familiarity with from the orphanage. The young boy’s youth and earnestness softened Ismael’s reserve, and he is secretly delighted at the scholarly aptitude displayed by his new apprentice.

I like Trogdor's format and shamelessly stole it!

animal handling is not a craft... should puissant and adept be for craft or animal handling?

You are correct, it should be for animal handling.

since this comes from the orphanage it does not require a story to add.
