Oscen Ilfetwis, christened Petrus, was the child of woodcutters. Always small and slight, he had no ease of making friendships as a child but was exceedingly comfortable with animals. Briefly apprenticed to a local hunter and falconer before being discovered by the magi of House Bjornaer, he was a chatty child despite the numerous times his attempts to make friends were destroyed by his growing Gift.

At the age of 9 he was taken in by House Bjornaer. When he quickly displayed an aptitude and love for teaching (caught attempting to tutor the covenant's children in reading and writing), his sleeping years were spent with a Sept of Clan Ilfetus, who saw him as a natural fit for that clan. During this period he first encountered the concept of a "Great Work" when his sept traveled to visit a nearby covenant that was devoted to the construction and cultivation of a living text to Herbam magic. Fascinated by this labyrinthine garden and its lessons, Oscen began to daydream and aspire to creating some similar great work some day, though he knows this is a distant dream if it is to ever be realized. It was perhaps his good fortune to be brought into the clan a scant three years prior to the Gathering of Twelve Years in 1215, where he became not merely an awakened apprentice, but apprentice to the much respected Clan Chief of Ilfetu, Ardea. The following years saw him learning and growing under her tutelage, embracing her philosophies and teachings whole-heartedly.

Gauntleted in 1225, he has grand aspirations, serious frustrations, and no real place in the Order outside of House Bjornaer…
