Known Information

Amongst connoisseurs of the Salon de la Rose Sauvage and its rather pointed delights it is known that, early in the year 1311, an older Thorn returned to the fold: Raphael nó Rose Sauvage, who was one of the very first novices selected for training there, once upon a time, by Edouard Shahrizai and his cousin Annabelle, the first Dowayne. Raphael was a marqued Thorn in the 1280s and departed, very discreetly, around 1290. Where he has been since, what he's been doing with himself, is not generally known.

He brought to the salon a mature and authoritative presence which quickly earned him the respect of patrons and courtesans alike, leading to his appointment in late May as Second of Thorns.
