Bio:

From knowledge comes power and there are those that must guard that knowledge.  Orpheus' lineage has long been charged with that task.

Being proud members of the Order of the White Lion, the family held to their duty with quiet pride and noble honor.  Orpheus changed that.  Full of his own sense of superiority, Orpheus took to the task as chronicler and keeper of sacred secrets, but became enamored by the power involved in arcane knowledge.  Studying and completing the tests as a bonafide wizard, Orpheus sought to enhance and increase his power.  His family, afraid of what his passions would lead him to, asked him to serve the Order by joining the conscripts being gathered for the Battle of Meadthick Crick.  Even during training, Orpheus maintained his own level of self-important air and caused a few altercations among the other troops with his off-putting attitude.  Once thrust into battle, all came together well, as personalities were forgotten and survival became the order of the day.

Orpheus discovered the identity of a traitor among the conscripts and was forced to make a choice he had never hoped to encounter.  He took the life of the traitor, just as he was about to set off a spell trigger that would have killed everyone on the battlefield. Orpheus was particularly traumatized by the event and took a vow of pacifism, opting to maintain the civility of life by not killing, only incapacitating that which may seek to harm him.

While certainly wisened to the ways of the world, Orpheus still maintains his posture of the need for protection and sanctity of knowledge.
