History: Andre is a second cousin of the ruling family of the House of Basilisque, from Camlach. The second of three boys, he was placed in the Cassiline Brotherhood as was traditional for his branch of the family. His training and early years with the Brotherhood were unremarkable, no different from any of the other novices.
Some 6 months ago, he was charged with the protection of a certain arrogant young nobleman, one who made enemies as easily as most people breathe. Though the truth of the matter is unknown, rumour has it that the noble in question was killed for more than simply his behaviour. Whatever the reason, a group of hired killers entered his townhouse. Neighbours, alerted by the screams, summoned the watch, and by the time they entered, there was only a scene of carnage. A trail of bodies led through the house to the nobles chamber, where the sole person unhurt was an adept of Valerian House, who had been brought to the house on Naamahs business that evening. The noble lay dead, with Andre collapsed atop the body of the one who had slain him.
The Cassiline still clung to life, if barely, and for over a week it was unknown if he would live or die. Live he did, and recover, though it was months before he could rise from a sickbed. When he was fit to rise, he was summoned before the Prefect of the Order, and dismissed, his failure to protect his charge cited as the reason. Again, rumour would hold that the nobles father, full of grief and rage had brought much pressure onto the Order to punish Andre for failing to die in his sons place.
Cast out from the order, and with a mysterious lack of opportunity elsewhere, he was offered a role within Valerian, perhaps in thanks for saving their adept.
