Bishop Reiner

Physical Description

Apparel & Accessories

Is typically seen in the blue and white regalia of his position including a blue-with-silver-trimming skullcap hat and bronze bishop miter.

Mental characteristics


Currently serves as a bishop in the Church of Sone.   During the war with Calios, he served as a priest to military units.

Mental Trauma

Reiner witnessed numerous casualties caused by mages during the war with Calios, leaving him a severe prejudice against mages.

Morality & Philosophy

Reiner firmly believes that the Church is the highest authority, period. Therefore, while he does abide by civil laws for the sake of the mortal consequences doing otherwise would entail, he rarely loses sleep over the stricter policies he might advocate for that are technically in line with his faith.

Personality Characteristics


Reiner sees the authority of the Church as weakened given the increased influences of the Guilds and industrialization of Troth.

Virtues & Personality perks

  • Well meaning zealot: Reiner genuinely does care about his country as well as his fellow man; it's just that who/what he thinks should be in charge of said country and who he considers to be "his fellow man" leaves more than a little to be desired.

Vices & Personality flaws

  • Anti-mage: to the point that he doesn't see them as redeemable or even as people.
  • Zealot: Firmly believes the Church should be the highest authority 


Religious Views

Reiner describes the role of the Church to act as a constant, providing an island, a safe harbor of faith and moral guidance no matter the ever changing currents and tides of society. What he utterly fails to account for is that the Church, no matter how faithful its followers, is filled and staffed by human beings and striving to remain as the societal constant he believes can easily turn into stubborn, stagnate dogma and self-righteousness.   Reiner is devout in his faith and follows a very strict interpretation of the Sone scriptures. Specifically, he views the very ability to use magic as a sin and thus considers mages to be irredeemable.
