Background: (abbreviated)
Saul was the third son of a prosperous money lender. He was well educated as a child but his small stature made him undesirable in the family business. He was taken as apprentice by Homerus Ex Bonisagus at the age of ten. Homerus believed Saul was gentle gifted, but was finally forced to admit that the apprentice’s gift was incomplete. Nevertheless, Homerus trained Saul to be a valued lab assistant, a role Saul proved quite capable in. Last year, Homerus was experimenting in his laboratory and underwent twilight. When Homerus returned, he wrote Saul a sterling letter of reference and bid him take leave at once. Homerus provided some supplies to Saul, then showed him the door.
Saul wandered from Homerus’s sanctum (a cavern deep beneath a mountain in the eastern pyrannesse mountain chain). He is seeking a covenant where he can take on work as a lab assistant, and perhaps eventually earn a longevity elixir.
