"The white god wants a word with you."
―Penric confronting Learned Tronio[src]

Learned Tronio was a Temple sorcerer and close confident of Minister Methani. He was the one who embezzled demons and used Alixtra to assassinate Methani's enemies.

He was fairly old at the time of Methani's death, with gray hair and a gray beard. He was tall "for a Cedonian". Inside, he was as corrupt as Methani, perfectly willing to use torture, murder, and embezzlement to advance his interests.

His demon was not new, but nowhere near as old as Desdemona. Thoroughly ruined by Tronio's corruption, the demon was stripped from Tronio by the Bastard, working through His saint, Blessed Iroki.
