Bio:

I was born Valère Androuet 20 years ago, my father Jacques was a Camon merchant while my mother Iphigénie was well occupied raising my two youngest sisters (Anne and Bérénice) and me.

I was kind of a normal kid, passing all the time I could playing with my friends, unaware of politics like all 10 years old boys can be.

Until one day, one of my close friends, Janus, showed the bunch of kids we were something he learned, making us swear to keep the secret: he knew a cantrip! Of course we swore, but 2 days after that, he was burned as well as his family on the village main place…

From that day, I’ve stopped being a kid and suddenly entered the real world. I was living in a country where you could be murdered by the rulers just because you were manipulating the most basic and inoffensive arcanes…

For those of you who speak French, you can find Janus’ journal here:
