Character Summary

Possessing a smorgasbord of gifts that most would kill for, Gabriel has certainly not been shy about abusing his power to seize glory for himself, and has made a name for himself in the city’s murky underworld. Everything always seems to fall in place for him, Lady Luck just a puppet on his string, though behind the charming masks and bright determination he’s more broken than he looks. Ambitious and audacious, he throws himself into whatever he’s doing with white-hot determination, constantly trying to distract himself from the demons that snap at his heels.
Wheel of Fortune Tier II
Ascension to "THE GOLDEN GOOSE"
The golden goose may find themselves in a strange predicament. They are wanted by everyone for their pure gold feathers—but perhaps find less joy in being so desired than most imagine. The golden goose is a creature that is easy to want, but difficult to attain.

You now have the ability to attract people to you and make them want you in the same way as the pheromones dominion works, whether or not you already have that dominion. You now have increased luck—all your rolls during an admin event will gain a -1, 0, +1, or +2 marker, decided by a four sided dice roll. The dominions air, flight, scrying, and light are now augmented. Your character may show unusual command of those dominions for their mastery.

The Devil Tier II
Ascension to "THE KAPPA"
The kappa is a water demon, known to be capricious tricksters and malicious troublemakers. They may simply trip you one day - only to drag you into the water to drown you and eat your flesh, the next. They are greedy and do not view themselves as being beholden to any mortal laws or morals. These are beings that see what they want and take it, no matter what the ‘it’ might be.

You feel new possibilities within you. You gain strength the closer you are to a body of water, and can now breathe underwater. You can now more easily influence or manipulate others. The dominions shadow, duplicity, fire, and combustion are now augmented. Your character may show unusual command of those dominions for their mastery.

Judgement Tier I
Ascension to "THE COWARDLY LION"
The cowardly lion has changed their position. Once, they were the king of animals. Now, their own anxiety is sheathing their vicious teeth. The cowardly lion is an interesting renewal or outcome, based not on a being’s nature or natural instincts, but on their conscious choices.

You feel new possibilities within you. You can now influence people more easily into making right or wrong decisions. The dominions air, flight, pheromones, and gravity are now augmented. Your character may show unusual command of those dominions for their mastery.


Character In-Depth

Gabriel is Invidia. He lives, breathes, bleeds it; the family is the most important thing in his life and if it came down to it, he would sacrifice everything he cares for in order to protect it. He’s a workaholic who finds delegation difficult, always having to know what it’s going on, the sort who answers emails at 4am and rarely takes personal time off. Not content with resting on his laurels, Gabriel is always looking to the future, always working to advance the family’s position and expand their sphere of control. It’s about the only thing he’s loyal to. People come and gone, but Invidia endures.

His ability to construct possible futures has made him a control freak, unused to being taken by surprise, with a penchant for manipulation and meddling. He’s happy to use and abuse people to benefit both himself and Invidia, burning their lives for his own profit, and has no patience with those who make mistakes. How much of it is his demon’s sadistic enjoyment and how much of it is him is unknown, but he’s never felt particularly guilty for anything he’s done. Violence is part and parcel of Kairos and torture is a useful tool in talented hands.

Away from the masks and the titles, Gabriel is not a well-balanced individual. An abusive relationship with an older man while he was still in his teens has made him wary of the world, and romance, in general, and he’s got the physical scars as a constant reminder. Skin on skin contact he’s not expecting occasionally makes him flinch and he still experiences nightmares that leave him unable to sleep for the rest of the night. Paired with a lifetime in crime and a competitive nature that didn’t lend itself to making friends, it’s not really surprising that Gabriel’s barriers are sky high. There are only a handful of people he feels comfortable being himself around and he occasionally finds himself pulling away even from them, retreating to believing that the only person he can rely on is himself.

He spends a lot of time in the gym, or running, or taking up some insane extreme sport, trying to lose his demons in the physicality of exhausting himself until he’s too tired to think. Sometimes he slips and chooses drink or drugs instead, a mistake he always regrets the next day, though he likes to tell people he’s clean. He appreciates art in all forms, physical or musical or theatrical, and is a rather talented pianist, though like with most of his hobbies he keeps them private. His mastery of mimicry means most skills come easily if he tries, an unnecessary stroke to his ego, but he is cagey about letting anyone know the true extent of his powers and tries to keep them as an ace up his sleeve, salvation in the face of disaster.

A showman and charismatic speaker when he needs to be, he is far more introverted in private, preferring quiet pursuits and rather nerdy hobbies. He even fancies himself a decent poet, though no living soul’s ever read anything he’s written. It’s a softer side that he sees as a weakness, a craving to indulge every so often, and so he lets very little of it slip out from underneath the carefully crafted masks he’s formed.


Demon Information

Cerise is a handful; she is willful and impetuous, prone to vicious tempers and impulsive decisions. At times she is more like a primal demon than a civil, acting entirely on emotion, words forgotten in her maelstrom of action and reaction. She enjoys cajoling Gabriel into giving in and acting out, and revels in the chaos that ensues.

Perhaps shaped by Gabriel’s opinion on her childish behaviour, Cerise usually manifests as a nine year old girl, blue eyed, blonde haired, round face shining with innocence.
