““Paranoia is a survival trait when you run in my circles
It gives you something to do in your spare time,
coming up with solutions to ridiculous problems that aren't ever going to happen.
Except when one of them does, at which point you feel way too vindicated.”

–- Harry Dresden, Changes, Jim Butcher”.


xxxxxBefore: Conner was a typical American boy before the Apocalypse, well as typical as a genius could be in the public school system. He had a social life, but wasn't the king of his school or anything, and he played sports and participated in clubs enough that he didn't suffer Nerd ostracism despite his place on the honor roll. He was all set up to go to ARU in the fall of 2013, scholarship plus parent working there discount. Unfortunately, the world ended before he could even start University... but that same disaster did place a collection of powerful and even dangerous occult tomes from the Restricted Collection at ARU into his hands.

xxxxxAND THEN: Surviving the End of the World was an accomplishment -- look at all the people who *did not* survive it and argue the point. Taking care of his grandparents and his kid brother was a challenge -- and despite that he managed to crack the occult codes of the books he had saved and with those tomes, experimentation and some luck he mastered the forms of ritual magic and transformed himself into a Sorcerer of estimable potency.

xxxxxNOW: Conner has taken his act from one on one negotiations with a perhaps questionable clientele to opening a shop front for walk-in customers and retainer clients alike. Sure, some have said that is a bit crazy, but Conner has concluded that only an idiot doesn't believe in the supernatural and the occult at this point, and he may as well make a living off his intellect and puissance instead of being asked to join a farm detail or join the unskilled labor recovery teams looting houses for routine salvage. He was always destined for White Collar employment and he will realize that destiny if he has to invent a new metaphysical economy himself.

RP Hooks
  • Native - Conner was born and bred in Aleswich; his parents were born and bred in Aleswich, his grandparents were born and bred in Aleswich -- you get the picture. Perhaps you are young and went to High School with him -- or you were one of the asshats who went to school on Cresmire Island. Maybe you are old and went to school or worked with is parents? (State Police Dad, ARU Professor Mom) Maybe you are fossilized and know his Grandparents? (Commercial Artist Maternal Grandfather; Homemaker Church Volunteer Maternal Grandmother, who is an O'Rourke. Paternal Grandfather was an APD officer who died before the EotW; Paternal Grandmother died of complications following bypass surgery in 2012.)

  • Paranormal Investigator - "Sure, you can laugh -- lots of people make that mistake. Here is the thing, when your walls are bleeding and that skull on your mantle won't stop screaming who are you going to call? The Haven Council? I don't think a Bee Keeper is going to have what you need, so keep the card. You'll change your mind."

  • Occult Consultant - Not sure if its a Paraphysical situation or simply a case of mundane shenanigans? I know, and if it is supernatural I can present you with a crisis plan so your amateur efforts aren't completely hopeless.

  • Relic Analyst - "Don't touch that. No, seriously, don't touch that. For a reasonable fee I will tell you what it is, and how you can touch that without melting your face. Have you seen how you look? You can't afford any face melting."

  • Relic Maker - "I can make that, sure. But I need to stress, you are going to pay me -- and then you are going to *pay*. Magic isn't free, particularly for dabblers. No offense."

  • Consulting Wizard - "Yes I am a wizard. The where and how and why is not important. I am the keyholder to the secret mysteries of the Universe and my services can be yours, for a resonable price. Before the apocalypse, you needed to have a Lawyer on retainer to look out for your interests -- now you need an Occult Professional. Blessings for you and yours, potions of mood elevation and alteration, charms of protection, exorcisms and banishings -- one stop service for a reasonable retainer plus per Diem when having to attend to a specific need. The rates are lower for clients with a retainer than walk ins, so plan ahead and contract today."

Relevant to my Universe
  • "Raggedy" Andy Wright - Apprentice - Younger Brother -- Minion: One is an assumption, one is a biological fact, the last is the actual truth. (NPC Retainer)
  • Thomas Sullivan - Commercial Artist -- Grandfather -- Associate: I am an equal opportunity employer, I have no problem exploiting my elderly relations. (NPC Staffer)
  • Theresa (O'Rourke) Sullivan - Homemaker -- Grandmother -- Pocket Badass: They never see her coming; that's not a cane you fool, that's a shillelagh! (NPC Staffer)

Kayne West - Power

I'm living in the 21st century doin' something mean to it
Do it better then anybody you ever seen do it
Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it
I guess every superhero need his theme music.

Weezer -- The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived

Somebody said all the world's a stage
And each of us is a player
That's what I've been tryin' to tell you

In Act 1, I was struggling to survive
Nobody wanted my action dead or alive
Act 2, I hit the big time
And bodies be all up on my behind
And I cant help myself because I was born to shine
