SILAS
Born in the Spring of 1193 (4th of April)
Apprenticed in the year 1200 (Age 7) by Karvith, which finished late 1214
Size 0

Sigil: Small patches of rock nearby seem to develop a thin and crumpling layer of Cinnabar.

Childhood, early life & Appearance


Was spent living in a small village north-west of Hamburg Germany, Silas has forgotten which though it doesn't bother him, though he does remember the ocean. His stay there was pleasant at times, having the gentle gift meant that he was not shunned, but he did feel different and he was alienated by most villagers as he grew older.
Karvith's arrival was a dream come true, and while he missed his real parents they quickly faded.

 

Silas was treated well, almost as a real son by Karvith and became a (somewhat mediocre) mage at the Stonehenge Tribunal in the winter 1214. This was also where he first met Aeditha (or Edith) who he would later marry. Due to a horrible misunderstanding Silas and a fellow mage, Baruch, would be wanted for questioning by the Stonehenge Tribunal. While he might have volenteered to explain himself his friends convinced him that it would not help and only bring trouble.

This would later bring cause an incident when they returned to England at later stages, mainly looking into the resurfacing of dragons. This caused an tear in Silas' world view which could have been up until that point been described as dangerously naive. This happened when he was forced to protect himself and his friends from a Mercere group who sought to bring him and Baruch to speak with the quaesitors.

 

As the adventure of the dragons return ended so did Bashir's life as single, as he was married to the lovely (if slightly aggressive) Edith in the winter of 1217, 24 years of age.

 

 

 

Silas is a pale youth with blonde hair and blue eyes. He appears a bit lanky; a bit too tall and a bit too thin but is pleasing to look at beyond that. He tends to wear nondescript robes or regular "mundane" clothes when he travels. At least as he did while under Karvith's tutelage.

Bashir
Born late spring 1197 in the City of Ivory and Jade bazaar district.
Size -1
Childhood, early life & Appearance

Bashir was orphaned at an early age and ended up being taken in by Raiffel Tolbertus, a discrete man working for Antonius over the many years of his life. Tolbertus as he was commonly known saw potential in the kid and began teaching Bashir the fine arts of pickpocketing, hiding and when caught, lying through your teeth. Bashir developed a stutter which only grew worse, especially in the presence of the city guard. Tolbertus took a serious illness around 1206 and the subsequent reflection upon his life meant changes for Bashir. Now he was taught basic showmanship by performers and contortion especially came natural to the small kid.
Despite the enchanted weather of the city Tolbertus took another turn for the worse in the winter 1215 and feared that Bashir would be left alone and without means to provide for himself. He wrote a letter to Antonius, a man who he had served faithfully through many years, and implored him to take on the young man.
Antonius accepted the untried man and set him to work aiding Taitale and Dirk look into some anti-mage group in the Hyperborean district. He has seen (and subsequently fled from) a mean-looking cerberous in the catacombs there and saw his first violent death in that adventure too as they lost the grog Abood who was stabbed to death.
Later in a trip to Barcelona Bashir took a chance, trying to sneak off with some money, but was found out. It was inevitable he would be found out but to Bashir's mind it was Taitale's fault, the elderly scholar easily seeing through the short thief's stuttering lies. This lead to Bashir's first imprisonment, leniently Antonius sentenced him to 3 months. He has vowed that it will never happen again. The imprisonment, that is.
Bashir is almost a head shorter than most, and looks young (younger than he is) partly due to him shaving and taking care of his appearance. He, like most from the Bazaar district, have brown-golden skin, dark brown eyes and dark hair. He has a lean physique but does not look particularly strong. Those who visit the markets in the Bazaar might have seen him preform contortions.

Trough the bound Dirk no longer needed any food but at first he still allways feeled hungy and thirsty but the spirit didn't realy take care of this needs and after a time this feeling got weaker and weaker.
The Spirit teached Puer as it call Dirk the 2 Languages it knows, Magic Lore and some basics in Music.

Name: Ramon of Barcelona

Titel: Lord

Birthday : 05.August 1195

House: Mercere

Gauntlet: Autumn 1214

 

Ramon is a illegimate child of Peter II the former King of Aragón but was born bevore Peter II claimed the crown and got married.

The mother of Ramon became a lesser noble under the permiss that neither she nor her childs will ever make a claim for the throne.

There is also the suspicion that fearie magic or some other kind of foul play was the reason Peter II was fallen for her.

 

It was actual fearie magic in play and because his mother broken her promise to the fearie its why Ramon became cursed

 

As Ramon is actual the 2nd born child of his mother his chances to become a landed noble are not great.

During his education as Redcap in the Barcelona Covenant Ramon got Sedala as present from Peter II bevore he left for a fight against Crussader where he then died Sep. 1213.

Ramon haved to refresh the promise that he not claim the trone but also that he assist his much jounger stepbrother Jakob I in case something happen to his fater in return.

Baruch ex Bonisagus, Filius Octavianus [at Autumn 1217]


Baruch is a crouched, thin, bald Senior Magus who specializes in weather magic. His constantly worried expression has etched his face with a zig-zag of thin lines. He is accommodating and attempts to avoid conflict. Those who come to know him may learn to appreciate his exceptional intellectual curiosity and kind heart. He treats everyone, even grogs, with an unusual degree of respect.

 

Picture:

 

 

mugshot-42-Worried-Man.jpg

 

 

 

Background:

 

 

Theodoes was born on the small island of Kinaliada off the coast of Constantinople in 1185. His father was a fisherman of meager means with too many mouths to feed, his mother a washerwoman in whatever spare time she had. Self-deception or not, Theodoes would later remember his childhood as a time of familial warmth and security. He would treasure the cool baths he had in the salty Marmara, the feel of the invigorating winds at the highest point of the island, and his first fishing trip. The most vivid memories of his childhood would, however, concern the way in which it ended.

 

Everyone on the island knew about the impending siege of Constantinople. Some had even fled the approaching throng of Christians. Many others - like Theodoes' parents - could not muster the watercraft to evacuate their families. They watched on the beach as the sails approached.

 

There was no battle to speak of. "Extermination" was Theodoes' own, rarely heard description. Without the intervention of his to-be parens, Octavianus, Theodoes would certainly have perished alongside his family. Through the air Theodoes flew, like the gulls he had always envied, while blood stained the rocky beach beneath.

 

Octavianus took Theodoes to his covenant in the City of Ivory and Jade, a marvelous flawed gem in the clouds, to serve as his apprentice. Unfortunately for Theodoes, his new master was as ugly on the inside as he was on the outside: a cruel, petty, monstrous mountain of green, warty flesh. Theodoes' days at the isolated covenant were filled with hard work, study, and catering to Octavianus’ strange whims. Octavianus grew to think his apprentice fundamentally incompetent and worthless. In Octavianus’ eyes, Theodoes’ inaptitude with earth magic far outweighed his incredible talent for manipulating the weather.

 

At his Gauntlet, Theodoes assumed the name “Baruch”, or "blessed". He silently relished the irony of this new moniker, taking it to immortalize the suffering he had known in the hands of the holy and the magical alike.

 

By this point, Baruch’s past had left marks on his body and mind: a prematurely aged, crouched, thin, bald man with a constantly worried expression and submissive demeanor, he had become the embodiment of the underdog. Baruch’s magic, however, formed a striking contrast to his mild manner. He could conjure fierce gales and raging storms out of thin air, far outshining most of his peers in terms of raw magical power.

 

The years since his apprenticeship have treated Baruch well. He has become a respected member of the covenant. His power has grown, and with it his self-confidence. His newfound power also provides him the opportunity of aiding others in dire straits. Much of Baruch’s time is now occupied by his adoptive apprentice Arabella, whom he rescued from a cruel taskmaster not unlike his own. He has also embraced responsibility as the covenant’s youngest senior magus. Baruch considers himself the guardian of the covenant’s younger magi and grogs, and works to aid and protect them. With time, he hopes to devote more time to researching weather magics, but for the time being he seems content to disregard scholarly acclaim for more immediate and mundane goals.

Corbenic's Story

 

 

Son of the now retired City Watch Commander and some dead woman, born on the 13th of December of the Year 1189, was forcefully exchanged by Unsidhe (the Sidhe of Winter Court) and left a changeling in his place. However in a conflict between the two courts was able to flee to the Summer Court were he now makes his home. But what will he do, will he seek his past life out or perhaps stay with his Sidhe lady friend. Either way, without his knowledge, a story demands a climax.

 

 

 

Corbenik's/Ovan's Story

 


A story which has existed for long enough becomes faded, and with it the truth. Yet it may be restored perhaps if it is played out not by actors, but by the characters themselves. This idea has bound a changeling to a path with one certainty. However due to the demands of the story he remains unaware of the truth, for the characters did not know. As such Ovan, no Corbenik, the "son" of the former City Watch Commander has grown as such. Through his will he has become the City Watch Commander where Magi rule, and just like the other, a demand must be carried out, one which he has no awareness of.

Taitale (Autumn 1217)

 

Taitale is an eccentric, wealthy Hyperborean genius who lost his Gift and legs in an accident during his apprenticeship. He runs a family business and works to discover the pattern behind the city's movement. He is friends with the senior magus Baruch, who has made him a flying chair that he uses to move around. Taitale has learned to disguise himself to look as if he was walking in case he has to leave the city.

 

Image:

 

 

Mitchell01.jpg

 

 

 

Background:


Taitale was born the first son of the most powerful and wealthy Hyperborean family in the City of Ivory and Jade. A brilliant, Gifted child, he was snatched at an early age by the then-youthful Bonisagus magus Octavianus. The feisty child never got along with his master, and constantly disobeyed orders. Against Octavianus’ wishes, Taitale developed an eclectic assortment of skills and talents rather than focusing on magic. Perhaps it was this incomplete mastery that proved his undoing, or perhaps Octavianus is the culprit. No one knows. Neither ever talks about the events that permanently destroyed Taitale’s Gift together with his legs. The tragedy ended up breaking Taitale’s and Octavianus’ relationship completely, leaving them bitter enemies.

 

Taitale was not deterred by his newfound lack of power and mobility. He immediately returned to his family’s business, and soon used his superior education, exquisite perceptiveness, and reputed leverage with the magi to usurp the family’s fortune. To his siblings’ dismay, however, he ever only devoted a small fraction of his time on managing the estate’s mundane affairs. For most of his waking hours, he followed whichever fleeting whim, casual love interest, drinking binge, or neurotic compulsion happened to strike him. He developed an almost polymathic grasp of the wildest assortment of proficiencies, extended his family’s business to education under the rubric of the Schola Taitale, fathered a small army of children with several women, and built a city-wide reputation as an eccentric, amorous genius.

 

The only long-lasting interest in Taitale’s life has been the movement of the flying city in which he dwells. He has devoted a great deal of resources towards following the way in which the city moves, attempting to discern a pattern in its seemingly erratic meanderings. He has spent countless nights staring at the sky, marking down the locations of the stars, comparing them against literature and the geography of the land far below, and attempting to see meaning where there appears to be none. As his children grew up, they began assisting Taitale. The adult children are now largely responsible for recording the city’s movements alongside their other duties, whereas Taitale himself focuses on trying to construct a pattern to their notes. Although he has developed a strong intuitive grasp of the city’s whims, often enabling him to correctly guess its future movements, he has thus far failed to formalize this.

 

During the last ten years, Taitale has befriended Baruch, one of the covenant’s younger magi. They share a hate of Octavianus, who began training Baruch soon after Taitale’s misfortune. Although Baruch’s interest in magic is much more focused than Taitale’s eclecticism, their natural curiosities mesh well. Baruch has often kindly assisted Taitale in his businesses, studies, and dealings with the magi. Although Taitale has also sometimes aided Baruch with his magical endeavors, he is well aware that he is deeply in Baruch’s debt. This was recently compounded by Baruch’s constructing Taitale a flying chair, which he has only partially managed to pay back. Should the occasion arise, Taitale could not honorably refuse any request Baruch makes of him.

 

Taitale’s age is beginning to weigh him down. He has no intention of dying anytime soon, however. Painful as the loss of his famous libido seems, he has recently been plotting for a way to secure a longevity ritual from the magi.

The elder NPC magi of the City of Ivory and Jade in Autumn 1217:

 

Karvith Torin ex Mercere

 

Karvith Torin is the third-eldest magus in the Covenant of Ivory and Jade, after Antonius and Octavianus. He specializes in Creo, Intellego, Corpus, and Mentem. Karvith is Silas’ parens.

 

Picture:

 

 

karvith.jpg

 

 

 

Description:

 

 

Karvith has a broad face, slightly wrinkled with a generous mouth giving him a certain charm. He is on the short side, and his hair has for one reason or another fallen off partly. He walks with a staff but more of habit than need. He has brown hair (what is left of it) though it has a tinge of gray mixed into it, pale blue eyes and a slightly crooked nose.

 

Karvith knows how to pleasure a woman despite his sterility. He enjoys drinking, singing, and generally watching and partaking in life. He also tries to encourage this in others, earning him a familiarity with the people serving under him. Karvith is not a hard master, but demands attention when he speaks and demands a rested and quick mind when teaching. Karvith has befriended a score of resourceful individuals, and they all seem to owe him some debt or another.

In his studies he occupies himself mostly with mentem and corpus, creo and intellego. He is talented at using his magic unnoticeably, but tries not to unfairly advantage himself in social situations.

 

Karvith insists that if people just worked together then they would be able to do anything and everything. This is his first and last interest in politics should anyone bother asking. He makes an exception for Octavianus, though, or “the tub of foul-mouthed sandworm dung” as he calls him.

 

Usually Karvith dresses in slightly worn traveling robes, though for the occasion he has dress robes. He carries a pure silver necklace with a pink sapphire. If someone mistakes him for s a regular redcap, he tends not to correct them.

His familiar is a white rabbit called Candidus.

 

Likes:

-Watching life unfold especially in the young

-Quiet contemplation, preferably equipped with a goblet of good wine

-Well practiced music and generally the finer things in life

-Popping into conversations

-Talking abstract, often taking whichever side only to further the argument.

-Agile minds

-Sense of duty

 

Dislikes:

-Getting interrupted or distracted while explaining or working on something.

-Matters of 'faith' especially getting personally involved in these.

-Magically prolonging one’s life – he thinks this leads to living less within your allotted time. Karvith has double morals on this issue, as he prolongs his own life – after all he thinks he knows how to live life properly. He also occasionally prepares longevity rituals for others, but tends to need convinging.

-Weak or watered down alcohol, it is just wrong. Don't stop a mage from getting tipsy!

-Cold

Octavianus ex Bonisagus

 

Octavianus is the second-eldest magus in the covenant. He is a mean, goblinoid scholar with a penchant for Terram. He is the parens of Taitale, Baruch, and Adal.

 

Picture:

 

 

octavianus.jpg

 

 

 

Description:

 

 

Octavianus’ goblin blood was very obvious to begin with, and his twilight scars have accentuated it further. His warty, green skin, reddish eyes, pointed ears, and blatant Gift make it very difficult for him to blend in with mundanes without magical concealment. This is the reason he gives when someone asks why an earthy creature such as himself wishes to live in a flying, magical city. The other reason he keeps a well-guarded secret.

Octavianus dresses in exquisitely-embroidered togas that flow freely around his corpuscular form. He wears rings with with large, precious stones in almost each finger.

 

Octavianus’ vast girth makes it difficult for him to stand up, which is why he usually lets himself be carried by his pet earth elemental Caesar. He rarely leaves his lab, preferring to stay away from the worthless rabble outside. When he does leave, people always end up angry and offended. Octavianus does not bother to please anyone. He lets his contempt for others show and only respects those rare few he acknowledges his superiors in matters arcane. He is quick to anger, and never forgets slights. He is still angry at Taitale and Baruch for failing him as apprentices. He has also never gotten along with the easy-going Karvith Torin, and the two have developed something of a feud.

 

Despite having earned the dislike of many of the covenant’s magi, Octavianus’ Mercurian magic renders him a veritable asset to them. He is well aware of this. Whenever a ritual needs to be cast, Octavianus is requested to do the honors to save vis. Although he invariably complains loudly at the burden, he secretly cherishes the power this affords him. Octavianus’ long term plan is to usurp Antonius as the leader of the covenant and to finally have his own Mercurian temple to rule with a diamond fist. He is scheming on several fronts to hasten Antonius’ demise, but failing that, he is equally content to simply let his natural longevity and safe lifestyle accomplish his goal for him. One of his schemes involves introducing faeries into the city and covenant, as he knows Antonius is susceptible to their power.

 

Octavianus is a famous master of all varieties of Terram magic, and is known for having developed several high-level ritual spells that wield the power of the earth to a devastating effect. He corresponds regularly with Bonisagi, and shares his work with Durenmar.

 

His familiar is a thick, brown, magical sandworm by the name of Shaitan. The sand Shaitan digs through exudes a layer of red-orange dust that Octavianus gathers as Terram vis.

Antonius ex Guernicus

 

Antonius is the covenant’s eldest magus and its Pharaoh. He is an able leader and a talented magical generalist.

 

Picture:

 

 

Antonius.jpg

 

 

 

Description:

 

 

Antonius dresses regally in expensive fabrics and jewelry, and obviously enjoys wearing the ludicrous headpiece that marks his position as the Pharaoh. He radiates an aura of great authority, but always with a tinge of unpredictability that makes everyone around him wary as if expecting the god-like figure to lash out in anger. He rarely does, but it is true that he has a manic and reckless streak that sometimes makes him behave erratically and unexpectedly.

 

Despite his quirks, Antonius is well-respected by the magi and grogs of the covenant alike. He is a capable administrator and leader, and knows how to appeal to his underlings while playing them against each other to achieve his goals. He is well aware of Octavianus’ scheming, for instance, and is maneuvering to counter him. Antonius is very happy where he is, and is willing to do anything to ensure the continuation of the covenant’s status quo. If presented with a chance to increase his personal power or his covenant's influence, however, his ambition is likely to get the better of him.

 

Since he moved to the city, Antonius has managed avoid all quaesitorial duties, and has long lost his status as quaesitor in good standing. He doesn’t really mind, though. Antonius was hardly the paradigm of lawfulness to begin with, and he is still always willing to bend the rules where he finds it useful. Although Antonius tries to avoid making enemies for the covenant, he ignores the rulings and goings-on of the land-bound tribunals whenever he can. He runs a fairly strict regimen in the city and the covenant, though, and is always willing to make examples of malcontents.

 

Antonius harbors an astonishing secret: his long-dead pater Caedmon was expelled from House Diedne shortly before the Schism War, and joined house Guernicus shortly thereafter. Caedmon made great efforts to prove his loyalty to his new House during the war, openly attacking his old house-mates, which is why his loyalty to house Guernicus was never questioned. Unbeknownst to anyone, however, Caedmon taught his apprentice the ways of the Diedne. This is the real reason Antonius is hiding in the flying city – among the inquisitive Quaesitores, it would have been only a matter of time before he was discovered. If anyone asks, Antonius says he is in the city to avoid contact with faeries, the infernal, and the divine, all of which he is highly susceptible to.

 

Antonius is known as a highly flexible generalist magus. He takes great care to appear exhausted after casting spells so as to conceal his Diedne heritage. This is also why he has never trained an apprentice - the risk is too great.

Antonius’ familiar is a magpie by the name of Marcus.

Pistrello Esposito ex Bjornaer

 

Pistrello is the fourth-eldest magus in the covenant. He is a highly specialized Muto Animal magus and the pater of Class, who has left the covenant.

 

Picture:

 

 

Pistrello.jpg

 

 

 

Description:

 

 

 

Pistrello is a sinewy, mousy man with an awkwardly skitterish gait and a high-pitched voice. He always dresses in the same nondescript gray robes. He smells strongly of sulfur.

 

For most of the time, Pistrello seems disinterested about everything around him. Then, on rare occasions, something truly catches his attention. When this happens, he focuses single-mindedly on that one thing to the exclusion of all else. On on occasion, for example, he spent years perfecting his mastery of one single formulaic spell.

 

Pistrello is a fervent and convincing public speaker. He exudes a primal allure that makes people want to follow him wherever he may lead them. Because of this, he often manages to convince others of the validity of his monomaniacal projects despite their obvious futility. However, he also has a way of making people nervous. He asks inappropriate questions. He stands too close for comfort. He stares at his discussion partner intently. He suddenly dashes off for no apparent reason.

 

Pistrello used to live at the Crintera covenant in the Rhine Tribunal, and sometimes still keeps in touch with his old allies there. He used to be a politically active Harmonist of clan Sirnas, but has since made efforts to break off from House politics. This is the reason why he moved to the flying city in the first place.

 

Pistrello has only been in the City of Ivory and Jade for about ten years. He is a famed scholar, however, and has already attained the rank of Journeyman. Pistrello is very narrowly specialized, and already ranks as one of the greatest live masters of Muto Animal. He wishes to one day be known as the greatest Muto Animal specialist in the history of the Order.

 

Pistrello’s heartbeast is a bat. He leads a pack of bats that live under the roofs of the City’s four towers. The bats have learned to recognize magical insects when they hunt and bring them to Pistrello.
