The Birth of Èrainn
Abbot of Tintern and Èrainn
Father Clement, an Irish Catholic priest, is the former Abbot of Tintern in Wexford before its destruction. He has been commissioned by the Vatican to found a monastery in the secret Irish colony of Èrainn. Clement was trained as an architect in his youth, and took holy orders in his mid-thirties after significant personal tragedy. He is now known as an extremely competent administrator and fiery advocate of the church. His bitterness at the sacking of Tintern by an English knight has been noted by his superiors, but he is considered the first choice for administering to the colonists’ spiritual needs despite his anger. Clement is extremely observant and a charismatic speaker.
