Golden Bearer of Travellers was born Wailen Nguyen, in the Haslanti league. Her father was a laborer in the airship industry, her mother a saleswoman for a small travel agency that offers Haslanti Airship rides for both fun and business. As she grew up, she fell in love with both travel and the skies, thanks to having ready access to both. If she had been destined for a regular Journeys shard, it would have come as no surprise, but her's came out of nowhere, much to the chagrin of the normally planning-oriented Sidereals.

Her training in her new vocation only heightened her love of travelling, and she often used some of her bureaucratic know-how to wrangle assignments in the North, as close to the League as she could manage. She never visited her family, she only went to see her favorite thing in Creation; Airships. She often commissioned rides on them in-between assignments and even on her vacations, few of them she has had so far. Eventually, she even managed to wrangle a deal with Valineth that netted her a modified Haslanti Airboat, kitted out for comfort and speed. She has yet to pay back her debt to Valineth in full yet.


Tall and thin, lots of fancy clothes and dresses, but usually pants and a long tunic and thick jade boots, with light blonde hair cut long but usually kept in a ponytail.

Target drops to App 1 before supernatural effects; supernatural effects require an additional 1wp cost and require a (Manipulation + Socialize) roll at difficulty of the Sidereal's Essence.

Roll (Manip + Socialize) against target's MDV, if succeeds, target views a second target in a new way (fear, sexual attraction, servitude, etc).

Used to mitigate social faux pas, may be activated for both the user or on the behalf of another.
