Guido was born in Florence in Tuscany in the late seventeenth century but under the worst circumstances he was abandoned to the street as an urchin who had a telltale six fingers on his left hand.

He quickly accelerated his studies and was considered a prodigy from a very young age. Consequently he was fluent in reading and writing in all the romance languages. He was accepted into the University of Bologna the age of sixteen where he excelled in translating the ancient languages of Greek Latin and Hebrew. He finished his studies before his eighteenth birthday and returned to Florence. He was duped into following a man to Spain that he has unintentionally offended this starts his trek through Spain being pursued by the inquisition which eventually leads him the London where he begins his startling career.
