Profile: Constantine

January 12, 2007

Faithful Michael Constantine
His parents were set against it.

Both the Matriarch Apostolic Oracle and the Reverend Bishop Judge Advocate urged their only son to reconsider. His tutors pleaded with him. His fellow cleric Faith boys at Temple-at-Attica thought him humor-struck or fever-sick.

But Constantine tauValez knew his own mind and was determined to live his life his way.

Constantine had been born into Faith, to parents accomplished, respected and well bred. A gift for scholarship and a keen intellect were apparent even as a child.

Constantine was blessed a prodigy.

At an early age his parents set Constantine on a track toward position and authority. His Faithful tutors saw the potential to rise as far as the Principalities, or even the Seraphim. However, by the time Constantine reached thirteen and inducted into the Disciple of Michael, other ideas begun to preoccupy him.

Constantine wearied of life behind monastic walls, of the isolation of academia, and of the pretensions of privilege. A student of history, the romance of Faith’s warrior priests in ancient times—the so-called Soldiers of Paradise—enthralled the adolescent. The old stories of swordsmen on gryphon-back riding the open countryside and enforcing the will of Faith struck a cord.

He daydreamed of a life of adventure and intrigue, and of service to Faith that would take him far away from the sanctimonious world he’d grown up in.

Against all better judgment, Michael Constantine tauValez enlisted in the Order of the Knights Templar.

Characters: The Principles

January 2, 2007


Constantine
Constantine lived his entire life behind mannered monastic walls. Growing up he had little contact with people outside of Faith. Upon completing studies at temple, his family expected Constantine to take a position with great opportunities to ascend in authority. Instead he chose a protectorate career path in the Knights Templar, entering the Order at its lowest level. Constantine compromised with his family and accepted a commission at the caustic Court-at-Columbia rather than a more violent provincial garrison.
