One night, Miguel was able to sneak by the guards surrounding Frollo and Tulio's house. Hastily, Tulio and Miguel made a plan to escape the house, so that they might live their lives together. They two were unsuccesful, however, when Frollo was very quickly informed of the runaways, and used all of his resources in order to reclaim his son. Upon Tulio and Miguel's discovery, Frollo had Miguel imprisoned, despite Tulios protests.thumb|left|314px
Back at his father's house after the incident, Tulio grows increasingly unstable. In an attempt to placate his son's attempts to leave the house and search for Miguel, Frollo lies to Tulio, telling him that Miguel has been executed. Upon hearing this, Tulio nearly strangles his father on the spot. His sanity quickly dissapates. That night, Tulio sets fire to his father's bed.Miraculously, Tulio and his father survive the fire, with Frollo awakening in time to drag his son forcibly away from the flames. Desperate for a solution, Frollo employs the help of Clopin, a mage, to have his son's memories erased of Miguel. With no recollection of Miguel whatsover, Tulio is now calm for the most part. Hoever, but his sanity is fragile and unstable due to the hasty removal of memories and physical effects of the trauma of losing his soul mate.
