1338

Born

4/12/1320

Born in Split, a major port in the Kingdom of Dalmatia, which would one day become Croatia (Transylvanian Tribunal). Her parentage is a mystery, she was not gently gifted and was left as an infant in the Cathedral of St. Dominus. She is named Sipara and given to an orphanage to raise, much to everyone's dismay.

1 yr - Found by Theodora

3/20/1321

Theodora of Salonika sails from Magvillus into Split on her way to the Tribunal in Transylvania, discovers Sipara and pays a Redcap to take her back to her home covenant Cavala in Greece (Thebes). There a wet nurse is found and Sipara is raised among the grogs. Theodora begins gently, teaching her Greek and Latin, reading to her, and giving her toys to teach her, but resolves not to begin her formal apprenticeship until she can read and write basic sentences.

5 yrs - "Apprenticed" - taken by Ordelfo

9/2/1325

Ordelfo of Bonisagus visits Cavala, and learns of a gifted child too young to be apprenticed. While he fails to trick Sipara into accepting his offer for apprenticeship, he succeeds in exercizing his right to claim her regardless, and takes her to his covenant.

7 yrs - The Three Amicii

7/28/1327

Three mages declare Wizard's War on Ordelfo at once, invade his Sanctum, and kill him. One, Sophia Ferra, speaks to Sipara gently enough to get her to point to Ordelfo's chest as the most important thing in the sanctum (it was bigger on the inside). Sophia claims the chest and Sipara, but she and her amicii soon fall into squabbling over the spoils, and she is killed. Sipara ends up in the keeping of Sophia's paren, and giving testimony to a Quaesitor in preparation of the next Tribunal.

8 yrs - Testimony and Return

6/1328

Speaking as a witness at a Tribunal, despite being only 8, Sipara's clear testimony in the trial of Sophia Ferra's death is key in resolving the matter in the favor of Sophia's paren. This and her ability to remember Theodora result in Sipara being returned to the Guernicus - or so they told her, though it was clear that there were some significant favors or deals being made. Ultimately she found herself back in Theodora's care, to her great relief and gratitude.

8 yrs - Sase Monastary, meets Ladislaus

They discover that the Spring magus had made an infernal pact and both suddenly understood the value of the Quaesitor/Hoplite relationship.

24 yrs - Gauntleted

1344

Fumes as her mater refuses to Gauntlet her until Theodora is satisfied, even though in her own mind she was ready well before the 1342 Tribunal. Is Aggressively Perfect in the meantime. She takes the name Aeliana after the great orator Claudius Aelianus.
