Grog 11 : Till Eulerspiegel, trickster
Till was born to a peasant family but never intended to plough the earth, instead he always found excuses to be off the farm and talk to the neighbours, cajoling a sweet fruit or an excuses not to work from them. Growing up he would not learn anything despite being an intelligent boy, as he went he'd concoct lies to avoid his lessons or trick his teachers and parents into leaving him to his own devices.
As he grew older, he grew bolder, sweet-talking the barmaids into giving him free wine or into his bed, until he was kicked out of town. He continued his carefree wandering through Alsace, pulling tricks and pranks on people, seducing ladies and embarrassing those who sought to punish him.
When visiting Heidelberg he managed to trick the teachers of each topic into thinking him erudite, while knowing nothing of the subjects. He continues his picaresque way throughout South Germany until a mage must get him out of trouble and settles down in the Covenant (maybe after falling in love with a Custos?)
Note: Till Eulerspiegel (Owl-mirror) is Alsace's traditional trickster character.
Till Eulerspiegel is young, rather good looking, with short light brown hair.
Why are they in the covenant?
Till is a traveller, a liar and a trickster. He makes a great face for the Covenant, but is probably infuriating to have around as he might try to outwit the Magi and pull silly pranks on them. If he does not have to do anything he considers work and is kept well fed and wined, he'll happily stay in the Covenant. Maybe a promise was extracted out of him? saving him from the noose ( or spiriting him away from the bedchamber of a knight's wife) in exchange for an oath of service?
