Leaving behind his lifelong dream of following in his father's footsteps and becoming a Coryani officer, Praetorius has hastely departed the legions where he spent most of his life. He now seeks to right the injustices that led to his departure.

Son of a legendary Illonian general, Praetorius was raised in strict military fashion and groomed from an early age to take his place as an officer in the Coryani legions. The death of Praetorius’ father and anhilation of his father’s legions was hailed as a tragedy by the Patricians but details leading up to the event are veiled and varied. Amid threats against his safety and rumors of political machinations among the Coryani elite, Praetorius left the legions. He has taken his own path with brash intentions of restoring the Empire to its glory and righting injustices wherever he percieves them. Perhaps the greatest obstacle to achieving these goals are his own inexperience and naivety.
