Rexus Victocora is a scholar and philosopher in Kintargo, Ravounel, and the last surviving member of the noble House Victocora.12


Rexus is a handsome, dusky-skinned young man with dark hair, a goatee, and fine clothing. He is of a short, slight build and always carries a cane.1


Born to Aneran and Porcia Victocora, he was raised as a lady in Kintargo's noble circles until a meeting with a Shelynite tutor proficient in changing genders. This meeting inspired him to transition into a man through alchemical unguents which, even with his parents' support, resulted in scandal, ostracization, and threats.1

His parents went missing and were presumed dead after House Thrune attacked Kintargo during the Night of Ashes and burned his family's estate in The Greens in 4715 AR. After witnessing the aftermath of the attack, he went into hiding in Kintargo.1 He particiated in the re-establishment of the Silver Ravens and worked with them as a charismatic orator and leader through the Kintargan Rebellion, which won independence for Kintargo and Ravounel from Cheliax in 4716 AR.23

After the Rebellion, Rexus has served Kintargo as a social reformer, writer, and politician, and more broadly as a freedom fighter in the continuing activities of the Silver Ravens and the Firebrands movement.4 As of 4724 AR he was also a traveling advisor to Lord-Mayor Jilia Bainilus.2


Family friend Laria Longroad took Rexus in after House Thrune's attack.1


Rexus studied at Kintargo's Alabaster Academy.1

Notable works

Rexus has authored dozens of works concerning liberty and oppression. Among them is The Dual Tyrannies of Crown and Currency: An Introduction to Firebrand Philosophy, a provocative work that proposed core tenets to be followed by the Firebrands.5
