Only the Fury can absolve us of our sins. Take solace in the scripture, for it shall not lead you astray.Ser Haumeric
Having graduated from Saint Endalim's Scholasticate as one of the Trinity, Ser Haumeric's future among the Vault's elite was all but secure. After joining the clergy, he campaigned for the abolishment of trial by combat and other judicial reforms. His destiny lay elsewhere, however, for Ser Zephirin, having observed Ser Haumeric's exceptional conjuring abilities, bid him join the Heavens' Ward.
Although he once considered resignation, he eventually decided, after reflecting on his past experiences within the clergy, that he could not forsake his position within the Heavens' Ward, as it would afford him opportunities to entreat the archbishop directly.
Ser Haumeric, alongside his fellow Heavens' Ward, join Thordan VII in the Singularity Reactor, after the Warrior of Light defeats both Lahabrea and Igeyorhm. The knights transform into the Knights of the Round and assist King Thordan in combat against the Warrior of Light.
Upon defeat, Haumeric and the other knights fall to the ground, and are encompassed in a swell of aetherical light.
Haumeric is a Wildwood Elezen with short black hair and dark brown eyes. He wears Ward's Mage attire, which is a Halonic alb in the white and blue colours of his order, with its insignia on his robes. In battle he wields the Worm of the Dell, a conjurer’s staff made of steel and silver, with an ornate staff head that branches into several ice crystals.
A man of strong principles, Ser Haumeric has long striven to walk the righteous path, and so he holds vicious men like Ser Charibert in great contempt. He sees issues such as politics and conflict as necessary things of the world, however repulsive or unpleasant as they may be.
Ser Haumeric is fought as one of King Thordan's knights in The Singularity Reactor.
Behind the scenes
Ser Haumeric's weapon, the Worm of the Dell, is named for the worms that writhe through the flesh of the dead — not only because his magic would tear through his enemies from the inside out, much like a maggot, but because his political philosophy was such that he regarded battle as something that was "necessary but repulsive; much like the maggot."
