Jan was born among a czech lands going through a miniature renaissance. Many unremarked advances were progressing there, and Jan was the beneficiary of them. Unfortunately there was a local priest named Jan Hus who was interested in reform, but still putting it under the yoke of christianity. He put down many of the small academies and town groups devoted to exploring the natural world.
Someone brought some works on alchemy from Merlin to Jan’s town, and he was instantly hooked. At the advice of his parents, he read it in secret, so when the Hussites began gathering forces in the countryside to fight the local garrisons of monarchs loyal to the papacy and the Teutonic knighthood, the depths of his knowledge was unremarked.
The problem was that an overly passionate Jan decided that betraying the starts of the Hussite movement to the teutonic knights would result in a restoration of the freedoms that only came at that time when you had not drawn the ire of any church. He gave a lord of the Teutonic knights Petr Verakirk the information about the hussites. His main problem was that Lord Petr was contemplating heresy and joining the Hussites. He did not work against the Hussites rather tried to turn Jan in as a heretic to be questioned and eventually killed. Weeks into Jan’s stay in the loving arms of his interrogators, Petr’s conversion came to light which gave Jan’s vehement denials some legs. He was eventually released, but watched.
Jan managed to escape roaming Europe in search of knowledge separated from any religious organization. It has most recently led him to the camp of his original teacher, Merlin, he was a student there, working his way up in that camp. He has achieved the rank of Journeyman, and has been sent out to complete a Major Formulae on his own, and that is what finds him wandering as a healer, wandering sage, and helper of those on the fringes of acceptable society.
