Helene ex Bonisagus was born Helene de Mouen, the daughter of a Norman knight and his lady. Despite the Gift her earliest years were unremarkable, due to a combination of her parent’s love and the vigilant fist of her devoted elder sister Maynild. By the age of 8, however, she still had no brother and the family no suitable heir. It was then that an old man on some mysterious quest visited and took an interest in Helene and her family. Within a year her mother gave birth to twin sons, and a year and a day after their birth the man came and took Helene away. A deal had been struck and delivered. Whether Maynild was a part of that deal or not she went with the man too.

Helene served her apprenticeship at the great Quaesitorial covenant of Confluensis under the somewhat absent-minded tutelage of Celeres ex Bonisagus. She grew to love the old man and his rather eccentric views, and he instilled in her his own tendencies as a Seeker. Helene

Helene has jumped at the chance to become a member of a covenant in the Theban Tribunal, renowned amongst the Seekers as one of the most productive areas for their search into ancient magics. It is also an auspicious time to leave Confluensis as a faerie lady that guards one of the Roman ruins near the covenant has taken an amorous interest in Helene.
