The scion of House Victocora.
Aneran and Portia Victocora always gave their son room to develop his own philosophies. They valued knowledge and personal freedom—with just enough distant oversight—over blind indoctrination. As a teenager, Rexus formed social circles from eclectic sources: musicians, servants, tutors, and even street urchins. He also developed a close friendship with Corthos Tanessen, who held similar views to Rexus on many issues, though they often disagreed on the details. After an adolescence spent stumbling through a dozen causes, Rexus finally decided to enlist in the secret society to which his parents belonged: the Sacred Order of Archivists.
Sadly, as Rexus was returning home from his studies at the Alabaster Academy, eager to announce his intentions to join his mother, the sight of a plume of smoke and fire rising from the Greens threw him into a panic. Upon arriving at his family estate, he found the manor engulfed in flames and the site under control of a large number of soldiers wearing the colors of House Thrune. At that moment, Rexus made a decision that haunts him still, yet which doubtless saved his life. Rather than race into the fire or reveal himself to the soldiers, he fled into the city to hide and mourn.
The next evening, Rexus crept through Kintargo on the first official night of its new curfew. He came to the still-smoking ruins of his family home and sifted through the rubble, hoping for clues, but found nothing more than evidence that others had scoured the place already for anything of value. Only the lack of any physical remains gave him hope that his family and the manor staff may have somehow, miraculously, survived. Over the days that followed, Rexus did what research he could to learn more, but no sign of his parents ever surfaced. Finally, cold and hungry, he received an offer of aid from one of his mother’s friends, Laria Longroad. The halfling was overjoyed to see Rexus alive, and not only took him into her house, but revealed something startling to him: his mother had left him an inheritance, as if she had foreseen the tragedy.
Rexus is a charming and insightful man, blessed with a handsome face and a keen wit. Though agreeable, he is also stubborn, unwavering from his goals. The fiery passion of youth drives him to fix the world’s problems, but he is aware of his limitations and tempers his ideals with realism. He reads aloud without realizing it, pushes his books onto others, and otherwise barely restrains his excitement over new discoveries. Though saddled with a weak constitution that has haunted him since a childhood bout with sickness, Rexus has a quiet courage that he inherited from both his parents.
