Background[edit]

Sections of the following have been redacted to protect the innocent. Original character, do not steal.

The Professor was born in Nexus, and it was there that he was trained as a barber-chirurgeon. After some years in private practice he took a job teaching other such chirurgeons, splitting his time between the two.

He exalted in a back alley, trying to save ██████████ who had been savaged by a karmeus; his hands glowed with golden light and moved like lightning, but it was too late. After this, he slowly dropped out of the medical and academic life he had known up to then, working instead on solitary projects and trying to master the secrets of life and death. His experiments turned slowly into investigations of the darker side of Essence, and his apartment grew a reputation as a haunted house. Things came to a head with an incident involving a ████, two ██████s and the ████████, after which he was exiled. He managed to escape being executed since ███████████████████████. After this he set off to the south in search of a more hospitable base of operations.

Upon reaching Chiaroscuro, he set up a small medical practice to keep food on his plate. In his spare time, he set about finding volunteers for experiments, and exploring the city's First Age ruins in search of lost knowledge.

After having a dream containing vivid imagery of a grand, shining tower on a mountain peak, the Professor sought out the site, but found only a blasted ring of stone, the foundation of what might once have been such a tower, lacking even a roof. While frequent lightning in the area deterred others from approaching, it hasn't given the Professor any trouble.

Appearance[edit]

A tall thin man with light brown skin, black hair streaked with grey, and brown eyes. He wears a lightweight white shirt and trousers, with a white lab coat or thawb during the day, and a brown frock coat at night or indoors.

Custom charms[edit]

  • Unerring Bolt of Justice
  • Cost: 6m, 1wp; Mins: Archery 5, Essence 3; Type: Simple
  • Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious, Mirror (Piercing Ghost Barb; Abyssals, p122)
  • Duration: Instant
  • Prerequisite Charms: There is No Wind
The Lawgivers' weapons harm none but their intended targets, passing harmlessly through innocent bystanders and cowards' armor alike, for nothing can stand before the justice of the Sun.
This negates all cover, all soak other than innate, and makes the attack unblockable except by unarmed parries. No one other than the designated target(s) will be harmed; if the attack misses, it will have no other effect.
  • Unsurpassed Genius Declaration
  • Cost: 3m/die; Mins: Lore 3, Essence 3; Type: Simple (Speed 6, DV -1)
  • Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious, Stackable
  • Duration: One scene
  • Prerequisite Charms: Any Lore Excellency
The Solar draws on her knowledge and experience to augment her mental faculties, allowing her to process, categorize, and store new information flawlessly.
For each 3 motes committed to this Charm, the Solar effectively adds one to her Intelligence in any context where an Excellency could augment it; thus, for example, it cannot assist rolls related to Sorcery. This counts as a dice bonus from Charms, and does not increase the Solar's dice cap in any way. Additionally, this Charm cannot increase the Solar's Intelligence by more than her Essence.
At Essence 5, this Charm's duration changes to Indefinite.
  • ???
  • Cost: ???; Mins: Linguistics 3, Essence 2; Type: Reflexive
  • Keywords: Combo-OK, Social
  • Duration: Instant
  • Prerequisite Charms: Sagacious Reading of Intent
The Solar engages in a contested roll of her (Perception+Linguistics) against the target's (Manipulation+Socialize); the target may substitute other pools with an appropriate stunt. Success allows the Solar to learn the target's emotional bearing on whatever matter he is paying attention to. Threshold successes may allow deeper insight, with sufficient successes granting the ability to see the target's thoughts as if they were written on his face.
Situational modifiers may apply to the roll if the target's face or body language are obscured, completely immobile, or influenced by forces unknown to the Solar.

Thaumaturgy[edit]

Currently under development.

The Art of <...>[edit]

Apprentice-level Procedures[edit]

Utility-level things, the equivalent of Astrology's chart-making. Completely normal here, move along.

Initiate-level Procedures[edit]

Evoking flame, dousing with water, and so forth.

Adept-level Procedures[edit]

Combinations of two Apprentice-level procedures, with raised difficulty. Possibly more powerful evocations.

Master-level Procedures[edit]

Combinations of three or more Apprentice-level procedures, with difficulty rising for larger combinations. Possibly more powerful evocations.

Sapphire Circle Spell: Sorcerous Transcendence of <Art>[edit]

  • Cost: 20m (10m committed)
  • Target: The caster or one portable object

This spell imbues the target with a thaumaturgical motonic phase-reversal construct as a Shaping effect. As long as the caster has access to this construct and maintains the mote commitment, she may take a Speed 5 Miscellaneous action to invoke a procedure she knows in <Art>, with normal expenditure of motes and the normal activation roll. Botches tend to have deleterious effects, and failed rolls waste motes; additionally, given the rushed nature of the thaumaturgy involved, the exact effects may vary from those intended.

Effective countermagic will disrupt the construct and end this spell and its mote commitment.
