Background:
Pietro is small. Newly Gauntleted, he's ready to show how "little" that matters.

Pietro had the good fortune to be born to covenfolk at a Jerbiton controlled covenant in the Rome Tribunal. His Gift and native intelligence discovered before he could reach most door handles, he was apprenticed on his fifth birthday. After a year, the kindly but distant Jerbiton discovered his incredibly ability with iron. When she found another apprenticeship candidate with a gentler Gift, Pietro was traded to an ambitious (and quite young) Verditius.

Pietro's new parens taught him everything he knew about the hermetic arts, letting his academics suffer. Pietro quickly learned, also, that he was more important than other children. He got in a few fights, some involving knives, until his parens secluded him even more. Pietro turned inward, his mind developing far faster and stronger than his body.

As he aged, Pietro began to realize his imaginary friend wasn't so imaginary. Geist revealed herself to Pietro when he was ten. Pietro's parens didn't find her for another six months. By then, the two were inseperable, often basking together in the sun during off hours. Geist occasionally lays an infertile egg with odd patterns on it, containing creo vis and a horrible stench.

Upon receiving his sigil in 1220, Pietro journeyed to Sardignia to help found a new covenant and investigate an old covenant. His first lab season was spend bonding Geist. His current task is to learn from a Redcap in his employ the academic skills his parens neglected. He couldn't be happier.
