Grog 15 : Katherine, the Custos
Katherine grew up in Dunremar, the great-granddaughter of a visiting apprentice of the Eichenguilde and soon to be Jerbiton magus. She grew up in an environment which fostered academic excellence. She has spent several years teaching young apprentices their basics ( Latin, Order lore and Scribing) as well as working within the great tower of Dunremar, once her talent as a teacher was discovered. She regrets having never made it to the higher echelons of the Custos within Dunremar, but the competition in such a Covenant is fierce, which is why she was happy to (be) volunteer(ed) to help with the PC's Covenant. She knows the ins and outs of the Order, maintaining a correspondence with several people beck in Dunremar as well as in a few other Covenants. She has started two tractatus on the learning of Latin and outlining her understanding of Aristotelian Philosophy, but she ruined both by spilling ink all over her manuscripts, and has yet to start again.
Her greatest regret was being born too late to meet or correspond with Hildegard von Bingen.
Katherine is well dressed, benefiting from the ample resources of the Covenant. She wears a green-dyed wimple which compliments her eyes. She mostly wers brown dresses, but many are ink-stained or frayed as she is clumsy and often damages her clothes in the process.
Why are they in the covenant?
She is a fantastic teacher, born to the Order of Hermes and enmeshed deep within it. She would struggle anywhere else (aside maybe from of Closter). She has chosen to leave Dunremar as a way to strike out for herself and rise in a hierarchy which is otherwise too cluttered. She hopes to benefit from a Longevity potion when her time comes.
