The adopted child of the Barma family, a wealthy merchantile family with connections to the Vintner's guild. About ten years ago he was discovered on the family's grounds badly wounded and close to death, as well as suffering from amnesia. In return for one of their priests having saved his life he offered his services to the Temple of the Tender, eventually joining its ranks being intrigued by the complexities of the human body. He was an unorthodox priest to say the least, claiming to be fascinated by the strange dichotomy that lies between life and death, suffering and pleasure. Once a fanatical priest, he became increasingly disillusioned, particularly with the Leader.
He also headed a sizeable cult who seem to embrace alternative interpretations of the Tender. His church lies on what was the border between the Cargan and the city watch controlled parts of the city. Its doors are open to any who might wish to give worship to the Tender. Rumours are they engage in all sorts of odd things including drinking blood and ritualised orgies. Most of his supporters appear to be those sympathetic to the viewpoint that killing is justified when done in the service of the common good and that those that might harm others are often better dead. In spite of this he had a good reputation within the church, being well known for having helped save the city and the lives of many of its citizens when it was thrown in to a temporary state of flux and for having, with the help of Alastair Fitzgrave, rescued an important shrine from a mad Magisterium wizard. As such he was rewarded with increasing status in the church and was seen as one of its most influential priests. He also representsed the Church on the newly reformed council and hoped to use his position to better the lives of Acryn's most poor and destitute.
He had a complex relationship with the nobility and was outspoken in his dislike of those who claim superiority due to their birthright, which is somewhat ironic. He was a descendent of the royal line of Acryn, a fact that he discovered by accident when called upon to investigate a spate of disappearances. According to the captured royalist his memories were removed so as to hide him within Acryn. With the help of his friend Logan Tomes he had finally recovered most of his past. Upon learning that Faria Carver and his uncle, Gaspor Cargan, were responsible both for the deaths of his parents and for the ritual to turn him in to an avatar of the Leader that went awry and led to the likely death of his brother (and much of his own suffering) he swore to have his vengence.
After being held prisoner by King Arcus I, who wished to use him to control the Cargan forces, he was freed by a group of adventurers and participated in the killing of the flux King. After the return of the Cargans to the city he returned to living by his true name, although his relationship with his family was complicated. Since reclaiming his old name he gradually started to use a clawfiend as his personal symbol in place of the Cargan Rooster. As a reward for helping bring down the Magisterium threat he was awarded to old Cargan estates outside Margush, which whilst mostly currently in ruins have great potential. Whilst this entitled him to the styling “Lord Vincenzo”, he tended to cringe at its use.
Following Auln's fall from grace, he assumed the title of First and Least, although he didn't seem particularly pleased about it. He later succeeded in taking control of the family alongside Walter Cargan by ousting his treasonous uncle Gaspar.
His final act was to call on the Tender's blessing to heal the Leader of his sense of entitlement. Whilst this was successful, it used up all of his life force. His soul most likely joined with either the Tender or the Leader.
A hospital run by Vincenzo's cult. It provides charitable healing to the poor for free but also will provide healing to paying customers in order to generate income. It has acquired some regular customers amongst certain segments of the nobility, who are willing to pay an extra fee in order to obtain additional discretion about the nature of their treatment. Its symbol is a heart, pierced by a dagger and bleeding. With the onset of war from both the Magisterium and the Serradic Empire, Vincenzo's followers have taken a more militant attitude (particularly compared with the rest of the Church) the order has begun to provide training to combat medics, which through a agreement with House Cargan are supplied to the Circle of the Broken Wing.
In his main church building a small memorial can be found reading “Logan Tomes: He proved that we can all become something better.”
