Early Life

Armand was born on April 10th, 1891 in Châlons, France to a wealthy family as an only child. Armand's father (François Patis) worked full time as a priest at a Catholic church in Châlons while his mother (Florentine D'Avallons) took care of the house and taught at a school in Châlons which Armand attended. Armand attended church with his family regularly each Sunday, however in May 1903 (when Armand was 12) anti-Catholic protests prevented Armand and his family from reaching the Châlons Catholic Church for Sunday service. This prompted Armand to enter woods near the church in an attempt to bypass the protesters. While in the woods Armand met Annaran member Pierre Oorn’lasikl who convinced Armand to join the Annaran. Armand began routinely visiting Pierre who taught him how to brew potions over the course of 3 years. On July 25th, 1910 when Armand was 19, he moved to Verdun, France.
