I've been chatting with Jonathan about the nature of my character via PM before posting. After getting some clarification, he asked me to move our discussion to the forum to get further input from him and other players.
The original idea I had didn't quite work right and has been revised a little bit, but more thought is needed. The concept I have is a Tytalus with the Gentle gift, and whom past the gauntlet at a young age and got himself into trouble. This is a magus who frankly, is a bit incompetent when it comes to being a wizard. He tried to take some short cuts and got himself into trouble, which required digging himself a lot deeper before mostly getting out of trouble. As a result, he turned to God and Jesus Christ to stay on the straight and narrow path.
After that period of his life, he has focused on living a virtuous life and doing good works for the poor.
I'm wondering if he even got married while he was young and had a family - a child or grandchild (haven't decided on age) could be an apprentice in the school. Goals would be to instill good moral character into the next generation of magi, as well as finding a Mystery Cult that initiates Flawless Magic.
As for being a Tytalus, Kaltheus actually wouldn't be that interested in his House's games anymore. However, is smart enough to play up that his Piousness is part of some grander plan to make his housemates uselessly spin their wheels looking for something else that doesn't exist.
