Bio:

Baptism Name: Patrick MacCartan

Parens: Regnor of Ex Miscellanea, Formerly of Cad Gadu currentyl unaffiliated with a covenant, last seen in Hibernia. He is of “The Lineage of Pralix” (Houses of Hermes Societates pg. 126) as well as a “Magoi of the Star” (The Mysteries pg. 54)

Goals: Eolas is driven to preserve and all magical knowledge. I see this coming up in a number of ways. If the covenant gets possession of a unique magical book he will insist that the original be stored in a safe place, only taken out to make copies (and it would be good to share some copies with other covenants so a disaster here doesn’t take the knowledge with it). He wants to preserve hedge traditions by inducting them into the Order, and merging their supernatural skills with hermetic magic theory (and definitely not force them to lose their supernatural abilities). His “driven” flaw also potentially puts him in conflict with most mystery cults. If he can he’ll find a way to widely share, and thereby preserve, the secret knowledge many of them hold dear. He’ll try to convince people with supernatural abilities to teach him (which will likely fail with -18 to source quality) or write a book.

Eolas also will try to make sure any gifted individual is trained and inducted into the order.

Eolas would like to be inducted into the Magoi of the Star (actually any mystery cult with knowledge, but he’s specifically interested in hermetic astrology)
