Aurthor ex Misc – Life Story

Aurthor was lucky enough to have his Gift identified almost as soon as it manifested, and was given over to the Order by the orphanage. This saved him from a life on the streets of Rome, and instead set him towards a life of power and wealth. Lucky him. His parens was a Praxologist, although by that point they hadn't completely separated from the Legacy of Pralix. He believes it is his purpose to leave a mark on the Order's body of knowledge. He just isn't sure what it will be yet. He has entertained thoughts of a pile of new spells, an array of new books, one or more well trained apprentices, passing on his unique Hermetic skills to one or more apprentices, contributing to a breakthrough and other hazier ideas. Much to everyone's charagin people keep on mixing him up with someone else. This someone else is apparently a scoundrel, killer, and all around not nice person. Aurthor suspects this man has immunity to divination.

Praxologists

Their an off-shoot of the Legacy of Pralix. Its not completely clear how it started, but it seems like it was started by one maga or magus during the Schism War, who trained a whole bunch of apprentices. Long story short that first generation also had a penchant for training apprentices and that was enough for it to become a real off-shoot. Philosophically, the big difference is that Praxologists want to absorb new magical traditions, make them Hermetic and integrate anything useful, as opposed to the Legacy of Pralix which has more focus on preservation. Of course, most other people don't care and don't see any real difference between the two.
