Alexandrus was born outside of Naples on the estate of a noble whose lands were built on the outskirts of the former site of Pompeii. His father was a villein who worked the lands of the lord and led a relatively good life for a peasant. Once he was old enough, Alexandrus took up the position of shepherd within the lord’s famulus. While not an exciting life, Alexandrus proved to be a good shepherd and his lord was relatively beneficent, gifting him with a sheep on Christmas each year. He eventually fell in love with the lord’s dairymaid, and after several years that had saved enough to be married. Life was good, but difficult, and Alexandrus and his wife were happy. Finally, just after his 27th birthday, they finally gave birth to their daughter, Maria.

But tragedy was soon to follow. Just months after Maria was born, a wicked infernalist hermetic wizard, a succubus and their sex cult killed the lord of the manor and took over his demesne. All of the lord’s family was murdered and many of the slaves and villeins were killed as well. The famuli did their best to serve the wizard and his cult for fear of death. Alexandrus was forced to watch as his wife was routinely ravaged by the lustful cultists while the succubus drew pleasure, and power, from her agony.

In the Fall of 1221, Alexandrus would finally see peace for his wife. A group of Hermetic wizards, led by Solomon of Guernicus, attacked the cult and eventually killed the infernalist and abjured the succubus. Unfortunately, the wounds his wife had received, coupled with the constant trauma she had undergone for last 9 months were too much for her to overcome. Solomon performed the Sacrament of Extreme Unction over her, and Alexandrus pledged himself to Solomon as long as he would keep his daughter safe.

Alexandrus has served as Solomon’s shield grog ever since, traveling with his daughter Maria first back to Magvillus with him, then to the covenant of Duresca, and now to Andorra.
