Merits (detailed):

Token: Spittlecrank stole three gears and a crankshaft during his Durance maintaining a geared contraption for his Keeper. The gears are roughly six inches in diameter and stored in a clear hard plastic case roughly the size of a game console. In game terms, the Gears are identical to “The Curious Paw” (4 dot Token) and require 1 turn to charge up.

Hollow: Spittlecrank’s Hollow is roughly the size of a studio apartment, with a cot in the corner and a fireplace in the other corner large enough to act as a miniature forge for crafting and repairing Hedge objects.

Resources: Spittlecrank works part-time repairing heaters, air conditioners, and whatever else need to be fixed. (He is also known to work “freelance” for nothing more than Glamour obtained via pledge and pizza.)

Bio:

Appearance:

short (5’7" 170 lbs.) and red-haired with rough features. Typically wears an old leather jacket, old ratty t-shirts (mostly rock bands and computer geeky tees), and hiking boots. Always carries a backpack around. In Spittlecrank’s fae mien, his skin is dark red, with a somewhat misshapen and crooked nose and hair all over. Eyes are bright reddish-brown, and he has a full beard.

Concept:

Birth name Brian Curtis, DOB 7/20/70, abducted 1989, returned 2006. (apparent age 25)

Grew up in Greenbelt / College park area as the youngest of three boys. Brian’s father was a NASA engineer, and as such developed a keen interest in astronomy and computers at a young age. Went to UMD as an engineering student in 1988-89, until early in his sophomore years when he was abducted by mysterious “transfer students” posing as computer nerds. Spent 7 years in Arcadia as slave of “Mad Duke” building a Fate Machine, whose purpose is unknown but involves manipulating mortals’ destinies in some form. Built weird-shaped gears, pulleys, switches, and other mechanical parts in a mystical forge. Spittlecrank eventually snuck out of his Keeper’s domain with a machine gear, which is his Token. Spittlecrank returned in 2006, and currently prepares himself for the return of his Keeper.
