Bio:

Upbringing:
Born with blatant Gift to peasant family, and christened Arvel. Unfortunate childhood taught him how to hide and move quickly. The determination in childhood to try and persevere with people was rewarded with brief instruction in English from travelling friar. Arvel was an enthusiastic student but friar moved on fairly quickly.

Apprenticeship:
Taken from his family by young nun (unbothered by his Blatant Gift) on behalf of future Criamon master. Parens was talented but also busy and inattentive, tasked tutors with parts of Arvel’s education. Contemplating Enigma and circular nature of time inspired Arvel to change name to Rhodri.
Revealed to be poor at grasping and mastering creo technique, so parens quickly ushered him to other arts. Despite this deficiency health is unusually robust, perhaps an unrecognised manifestation or subconscious inversion of the magic.
Fine student of vim, found to possess a knack for perdo magic. This talent for making objects worse, on top of blatant Gift, proved rather discouraging on a personal level.
Received vision of an ouroboros during end of apprenticeship, interpreted as sign that future studies of Enigma lie in the land of Eire. Informed of efforts to repopulate the meagre covenant at Iniscrabhall, but departed homeland in no great hurry.
