He has mentioned that he dislikes life as the leader of Mount Angel and wishes to return to the quiet life as a monk. He was also the one who ordered Ignatius to follow Rudi on his quest to Nantucket.
  • Father Ignatius: Belongs to the Order of the Shield of St. Benedict. His original name, or baptismal name, was Karl Bergfried. A sword-brother of Mount Angel of Vietnamese descent. Father Ignatius was given the task to help Mathilda escape the PPA so she could join Rudi on his quest and keep an eye on both of the heirs. He has also at times counsels Mathilda while she struggles over her feelings about Rudi. Though he believes strongly in God, he often uses reason and logic to argue against the Mackenzie idea of magic.
