Arch-mage Volermo is the head of the Arcana Empiricum.
“Arch-mage Volermo. After showing the Empiricum’s impotence against the Avendi, I assume Volermo has decided to pull his head in. Hard to speak with authority in the King’s court when your best mages just dropped to their knees. Menon’s Archprelate no doubt slammed his fist on the table and Volermo goes down so fast his knees, which I’m sure are as black and blue as his sleep deprived eyes.” – Kidaris
