Lucian of Sharr
Lucian Benetos (D.A. 292-355), better known as Lucian of Sharr, was a scholar and monk devoted to Ioun. Lucian studied a variety of subjects, but primarily law, history, astronomy, and religion.
In D.A. 323, Lucian began working on an overarching history of the Devenerian Empire. He soon became frustrated with the confusing systems of dates used by different historians, making it difficult to reconcile various texts. This would eventually lead Lucian to create his most famous work, the Lucian Calendar.
Lucian of Sharr was born in Gare, a small village in Capua. At 16, he left home for the Collegium Imperial, where he studied until he was 23. He relocated to the monastery of Ioun in Sharr, where he would live the rest of his days.
