Trentus (1220)

Note: This is not a fair an adctual picture. This is the character as it was inthe saga a few years ago. I recreated the character from scratch using the current HR's, and though I made sure that he matches up to this state or beyond by the current saga year, as 1220 rolled past in development, he may not have exactly matched these scores.

  • AD 1172 Iberia; Apprentice Law

For his gauntlet, the apprentice Vermbar of House Flambeau (now magus Trentus) was abandon in Barcelona lacking clothes, provisions, and money; and was told to get to Sicily within a month. In securing provisions, the apprentice slew several mundanes, scorched a number of guardsmen, and burned two ships in the harbor. Mindful of the customs of the Order regarding the accountability of apprentices, the presiding Quaesitor recommended that Vermbar be held responsible for willfully interfering with mundanes and be treated accordingly. The tribunal ruled that an apprentice’s Gauntlet is a special situation, when a magus cannot be required to guide an apprentice’s actions, but when the apprentice is not yet a member of the Order and thus not bound to obey the Code. The Tribunal therefore neither punished Vermbar or his parens.

  • AD 1186 Iberia; Interfering with Mundanes

Magus Trentus of House Flambeau was brought before the Tribunal and charged with personally killing no fewer than 100 mundanes in several raids and battles. The Tribunal noted that although his use of magic had been blatant, and on occasion spectacular, Trentus had never left a survivor who might identify him as a magus of the Order of Hermes. The tribunal acquitted him of these charges.

  • AD 1194 Iberia; Sanctum Law

Magus Trentus was charged with slaying a fellow magus outside Trentus’ sanctum. Trentus argued that the other was approaching his sanctum with the intent of stealing certain magical artifacts. In accordance with precedent, Trentus was found guilty of breaking the Code, but was only punished with the loss of his familiar.
