In the Shadow of Princes
A young Roman protege of Golan Trevize, Aurus took the place of former Archon Minor, Terrick, after Phillipe Depardieu slew him in a psychic duel in the Paris underground.
Aurus and his twin brother Auren are both adepts in the Phoenix Order though they have both followed quite different paths in the order. While Aurus took up the aggressive discipline of psychokinesis and did his best to curry favour among the courtier savants of the Phoenix inner circle, Auren favoured the passive enlightenment of clairsentience under the tutelage of the aloof isolationist, Archon Sendahl.
Aurus’s elevation to Archon Minor puts him in a position of great prestige in the Phoenix Order, but his personal glories are incomplete so long as his nemesis, Phillipe Depardieu, lives and breathes. Aurus will not soon forget the insulting defeat Phillipe recently dealt him in Spain. Nor will he ever forgive it.
