Background

Adeline was born in the town of Ay, along the river Marne south of Reims. Her father was a clerk there, keeping the account books for a number of tanning and weaving businesses. The girl was born with a weak right leg, which made moving around difficult for her and reduced her prospects for marriage, so her father taught her her letters so that she could eventually earn a living.

Unfortunately, while the family was travelling to Reims with a group of merchants, they were attacked by a band of brigands and her parents killed. She spent several weeks in captivity, forced to cook and clean for the brigands, but was rescued when two magi along with their grogs dispatched her captors and their leader. Bereft of any close family, she pledged herself her savior, Quintus Clusius of House Jerbiton. (This happened in Fall 1199)

Adeline spent a bit over a year at Confluensis, and followed Quintus Clusius when he moved to Triamore and stayed there four more years. During that time, she received additional training from Triamore's librarian, learning Latin as well as the basics of Magic Theory and some arcane lores. This allowed her to help gather and make copies for the new covenant.

She arrived at Tugurium in Winter 1204, after a season on the road.

Appearance

A rather pretty slender woman of with wide hips and dark brown hair, Adeline tends to stay in the shadow of Clusius, to whom she is utterly devoted. Despite rumors that she was the magus' bed warmer when they lived at Triamore, she has never worked up enough courage to approach him in that way. She suffers from a persistent stutter and her shyness usually means she keeps her brown eyes down when adressing most people.

Background

Louis was born in Reims. His father was a charioteer, driving his wagon for merchants carrying their goods from town to town. Louis was an only child, his mother having died from a coughing sickness when Louis was only 6. After his mother's death, Louis' father had taken to bringin Louis along during his trips instead of leaving him at home, so the boy learned his profession from an early age.

Louis was 13 when their merchant train was attacked by a group of brigands. His father was severely wounded, and without proper care died a few weeks later. Louis himself was treated reasonably well by the brigands at first, who were perhaps hoping he would become one of theirs with time, but still forced to work for them and take care of their horses. He tried escaping once after his father's death, but was beaten badly for his trouble.

Before his burgeoning hatred drove Louis to some desperate and empty gesture of defiance, two magi along with their grogs dispatched the brigands and their leader. Vowing that he would learn who to fight, the strapping lad pledged himself to one of the magi, Quintus Clusius of House Jerbiton. (This happened in Fall 1199)

Louis began his training at Confluensis, and followed Quintus Clusius when he moved to Triamore and stayed there four more years. During that time, he received additional training from Triamore's turb and learned a bit of Latin.

He arrived at Tugurium in Winter 1204, after a season on the road.

Appearance

Tall and strong, Louis has dark brown hair and brown eyes.
