Auctus is a second generation Hermean. His father, Olyphan, hails from Nantambu deep in the Mwangi expanse, a master representing the disciples of Jatembe from the Magaambya academy and a member of the Council of Enlightenment. A powerful presence of both good and the representation of the true connection between the divine and arcane. Auctus is enamored with knowledge and his father is the representation of all that is true and wise in the world. Growing up in Promise is a dream come true for Auctus. At his finger tips is the collective knowledge of all of humanity, with his father to guide him and the great Mengkare for strength, Auctus has flourished.
Easily passing his tests of given by the Council of Enlightenment, Auctus felt pride. Praise from his peers and admiration from the Council only lifted him higher, high enough to feel it all crashing down when his own father recommended the final decision of the Council be postponed until Auctus could prove himself beyond his knowledge or accept failure for weakness in application. Auctus was crushed. In respect, Auctus bowed low to his father and asked why he is behind denied his rightful place as a full Hermean. His father’s simple reply, “You know nothing but books and pages, a student of dreams is all you are. Prove you have the will to possess this knowledge and the Council will grant your citizenship.”
Auctus learned of the expedition to the Worldwound and found in himself humility and a chance to prove himself to his father and the Council. Auctus went to face a man who represented all of his fears, a man who bullied him in his youth and a man whose recent anger had him faced with exile. Auctus spoke with Barca and swore an oath of loyalty. “I have always feared your rage and thought you to be weaker because of it, but I am learning that strength does not only reside in the mind, and that knowledge can also reside in the fist. I will accompany you in your expedition to the Abyss and together we can learn all the planes can teach. If successful, may the Council reconsider both of us as citizens.”
It was from this point, two men become brothers.
