[size=150]Titus Aurelius [/size]

Titus Aurelius was born as 4th son to an impoverished noble with little to his name but his (possibly false) claims of decent from on of the early roman emperors.
A 4th son added little to the family save to further complicate the future inheiritance disputes and so his father happily handed him off when a strange but clearly powerful woman asked for a page for her retinue.

The next few months were a chaotic mess for little Titus. The woman who'd recruited him for her retinue served the Tremere of Roznov covenant, but Severicus owed a favour to a Bonisagus magus at Durenmar, whose former apprentice had recently become a master in her own right. Titus only really remembers these months as a nightmare and still becomes uncomfortable when near any of the involved parties, despite now having learned Parma Magica and so being unaffected by their respective Gifts.

15 years passed as the apprentice of Maria of Bonisagus, a relatively young master formally of Durenmar though she travelled a fair bit and insisted on bringing her apprentice. This was also the years were Titus learned that he was a (physical) coward, with no talent for combat what-so-ever.

Titus was most comfortable in the library or the lab, and plan to spend a lot of his future buried in research.
Titus is fascinated by by Aurae and Regiones, and to some extend with magic that affects magic, and hope to contribute to the future of the Order via his research into these subjects.

Minor update:
Titus has now been advanced 3 years past his gauntlet and is ready to enter play.

working on the private 50 points.

Planning to take the Key to Safety - 20 points.
This will be mainly for lab use (+2 safety, +1 experimentation), but I'll probably bring it along when I travel.
