Template: α Braeden

A skeptic who reluctantly becomes a believer. Mercenary who's not letting this Masquerade keep her out.

Template: α DMM

Dennis, Janet, Mac, Maxine: Danny, Margo, Mike, Max

Good-looking and silver-tongued, Mike loves women, hates commitment, and sees himself in the Oval Office someday down the line. Socially adept but misanthropic. Mostly interested in pursuing their own academic interests rather than interpersonal drama.

Mike is a man of action. He's always the first to volunteer, the first to make a suggestion. With a narcissistic streak, there's no denying that he likes the attention that comes with being the man who stands up and can get things done. Romantic, funny, and brave; dishonest, uncharitable, and incurious.

Template: α Doppelgänger σ
Template: α Etcetera σ

Sarcastic, neurotic, joke machine. Coldly pragmatic but also impetuously immature. Selfish. Protective of their circle of people.

Template: α Exile σ
Template: α Marin
Template: α Scott

De facto leader. Empathetic, compassionate, idealistic. Makes peace by sheer force of will.

Template: α Serpent

Jackson: Big man on campus. Convinced that a rich, lawyer father and a fancy car make him important. Sore loser. Very likely to turn into something he regrets, especially something he can't control. Vizier.

Template: α Victoria

Willing to go to great lengths to avenge real and imagined slights. At her most effective (but also most vulnerable) when protecting her people.

Phase 1: Moves from place to place, always finding a way to survive. Manipulative, flighty, cunning.
Phase 2: Protects her family so that the darkness of reality will not touch them. Trades cunning for pragmatism.

Template: η Petrova σ


Part of the noble tradition of maintaining the masquerade (and frequently, hunting the monsters that plague society, even if they're people), although they don't always know it. Want to change systems for the better and will follow those who know how to do so. Always questioning received wisdom, although a bit too ruthless when mercy might be more appropriate.

Template: θ God-King
Template: θ Hudson
