Bio:

Childhood

Uwe grew up in the Franconian forest as the single child of a woodcutter.
Always a strange child he sometimes talked with the trees and animals of the woods.
One day when climbing a tall tree he fell, but instead of plummeting to his death magical winds lifted him gently to the ground. Seeing this as a miracle his parents took Uwe to the local priest. The priest took him in and promised Uwe’s parents that the child would be taken care of as he was assuredly destined for great things.

Early Life

Uwe spent 3 years with the kind and old Father Albert until he died one winter’s night.
The new priest was not kind and took an imediate dislike to Uwe. One night Uwe gathered som meager tools and took of eastwards. Eventually he arrived at the Bohemien forest.
Here he hooked up with some bandits and lived for 2 years until Fulchrum of Flambeau found him and discovered his gift. Fulchrum took Uwe as an apprentice and the two became good friends.

Apprenticeship

Fulchrum lived in Fengheld. A powerful covenant with great influnce in the Tribunal. The two formed a strong friendship that lasted for 14 years until the mysterious death of Fulchrum. Fulchrum was an avid explorer of old ruins and forgotten mystical sites , and the two travelled far and wide exploring much of the Holy Roman Empire and Transylvania. Uwe also spent many winters searching The Great Library in Durenmar for arcane lore. Fulchrum, who was an adherent of the school of Vilano taught Uwe all he knew about the principles of combat. Soon Uwe learned about his mystical heritage, and found strength in his Hyperborean decent. He atuned his innate connection to Appollo into an affinity with the cold associated with the north wind. He also mastered his ability to fly through the air, propelled by the the winds of Appollo. Much of his training focused on the use of magic as a weapon and he studied briefly under followers of other magical schools such as Boreas and Ramius. He has become convinced that while focusing on one school results in formidable power, all schools have shortcomings and can be withstood by those who are prepared. The greatest mystical pugilist will be one who masters several shools and can vary his attacks to meet all foes and mantain a constant edge of surprise.

During one expedition to an ancient pagan site somewhere in the Transylvanian Tribunal Uwe and his master encountered a magus from House Tremere who harrased them and drove them from the site after a Certamén duel. Uwe and Fulchrum had no legal choice other than leaving. Years later in 1219 Uwe was away studying Perdo in the library of Castra Solis when he recieved word that his master had been found dead at the doorsteps of a covenant in Transylvania. He had suffered grevious wounds from an unknown assailant and that he had made it so far was testemant to his indominatble will.

Gauntlet

Uwe stayed at Castra Solis to finish his training and pass his gauntlet. Uwe’s gauntlet was to climb some of the highest peaks in the Pyreneas in search of a rare bread of hawk that is immune to extremes of heat and cold and befriend it. After becoming a full magus he took the name Preanuntius (Harbinger) and swore an oath to identify and hunt down his Pater’s murderer. While he openly believes that the Tremere mage they encountereed years ago is the culprit, a Quesitor investigation was unable to identify the unknown assasin.

Venturing into the world

Preanuntius has founded the new Treverorum on the ruins of the old Treverorum together with four other young magi. From here he intends to improve his martial capabilities and search for his master’s murderer.
