In 1882, Bartholomew was seen training alongside his father outside the Abrams Manor. His younger sister came rushing to Bartholomew and their father, impatiently asking when she would get to train and be able to climb things like Bartholomew.
Bartholomew's mother, Iona went on to state that one day she will learn but it will be Iona teaching Adaugo, not her father. The whole family then laughed and Ugo went to embrace his family, feeling that after a life of tragedy and hardship he had finally found happiness.
- Bartholomew is an English given name that derives from the Aramaic name meaning "son of Talmai". Bar is Aramaic for "son", and marks patronyms. Talmai either comes from telem "furrow" or is a Hebrew version of Ptolemy or Filius.
