The Secret Garden
Ludwig is a tall, north African man with an amused smile and incredible cheekbones.
Ludwig is a member of House Janissary.
In an alternate timeline, Ludwig was a former member of the Brythonic Lodge and one-time friend of Portobello. He was cast out of that group allegedly for being an oathbreaker. The Lodge really don’t like talking about him.
According to Corduroy Jack, Ludwig left the Lodge in order to devote himself to the service of a powerful but obscure Umbrood. For the Brythonic Lodge, this kind of servitude is a heinous betrayal of the Hermetic Arts, and they have never forgiven Ludwig for the slight.
