History: Born in Florence from a small trader's family, was taken (or bought) and brought to Verdi shortly after the manifestation of his Gift. There Oliverius became a Magus and he practiced his trade as a Verditius for several years. This ended when a rivalry with a resident Magus, who has hampered him several times, became unsustainable. Oliverius choose Praesidium Orae as his new home because is an ascending Covenant rich in Vis and mundane wealth, located not too far from Verdi where his enemy still dwell. In fact, Oliverius has not forgotten and waits for the best time to repay the attentions he receives, randomly questioning his apprentice on Verdi's news and hoping to get some useful information.
