Campaign:IMPROMPTU GAME/Watcher of the Wayward Threads

From 1d4chan


Name:Watcher of the Wayward Threads
Concept:Collector of and occasional meddler in stories
Shadowed Caste:Entertainer
Motivation:Observe the unfolding story of Rong, Dancer, Halak, Joeseph, etc. to its conclusion


(In the Style of Sidereal Sutras) Once there was an unshaped.

Who became so very bored.

He could craft so many stories

But he knew how each would end

Then, the Unshaped saw a glimmer

Then it saw a flash

And then it saw something... beautiful

The Unshaped saw Creation

And for once it knew stories to which it could not tell the ending

The Unshaped could not get close enough to truly observe the stories

So it took upon itself a shape

And now the Unshaped-no-longer wanders

Watches, learns, and thrives.


Like any Raksha, Watcher is quite good-looking, however, he is on the low end by Raksha standards. He is tall and lithe, but with visible (albeit compact) muscle. His hair is cut short and brown in coloration. Like most Raksha, his ears are pointed. His eyes are blue.

Watcher typically wears a scholarly robe but will often change wardrobe to fit the occasion if he feels it merits it. He carries a staff seemingly formed entirely from Sidereal-style sutras (on scraps of paper, however, the staff is surprisingly sturdy thanks to being composed of gossamer), a little irony that only he really appreciates (Sidereals find it irritating and possibly offensive and no one else really recognizes them).
