Gear & Equipment: Stephanos is rarely if ever armed, and typically doesn’t carry around special equipment, unless of course he’s doing a gig at the local bar.
|Wild Fighting||0 (B)||-||-||6|
Harvest: Stephanos is a local rock star, and this gives him plenty of opportunity to harvest Glamour through the raw emotion of music.
Mantle: A faint smell of freshly dug earth follows Stephanos wherever he goes. Stephanos seems to give off a certain “energy vibe” that makes people around him more alert.
Retainer : I don’t have Stephanos’s entourage statted up, and I’ll wing stats if I need to. Damien is a very capable fighter with four dots in Merit (boxing) and has a 4 Str / 3 Dex / 3 Stam.
Concept: Live fast and party hard, and Faerie will be forgotten.
Background: Birth name Evan Burke, DOB 9/25/77, abducted 1999, returned 2002.
Evan Burke lived a relatively normal upper-middle class life in Northern Virginia. Evan was a bit of a troublemaker, but for the most part he was a well-liked kid who mingled freely among several groups of friends. Evan went to NOVA community college, where he took his sweet time getting college credits and played lead guitar in a couple rock bands that never really got off the ground. After playing a set in late 1999, Evan met up with a beautiful dark-haired girl with bright green eyes named “Shayla”: Evan went back to her place after a particularly wild after-party around 4am, but passed out halfway from the “champagne” they drank, and he woke up inside a glass tower atop a glass palace, where Stephanos played in an unearthly concert orchestra and drank extremely potent wine made from the fermented blood of various hobgoblins.
Twelve years of constant music, drink, and orgiastic revelry came with a price just like in the real world, but more so: Stephanos was never satisfied and wanted more of a high. Eventually, this yearning led Stephanos to escape Arcadis for the real world, where three years passed by. Stephanos tried to resume his past life as a musician, which has succeeded, but he plays a completely different genre of music: he abandoned the hippie folk-rock music of his pre-Durance days for hard rock, with lyrics involving being lost, drugged out, or toyed with by others. Stephanos has tried to fit into the college scene, but at age 30 (as of the start of this chronicle) that is getting more and more difficult. In 2003, Stephanos was shown the ropes of changeling life by Roscoe, who became his mentor and friend: Roscoe provides the black market and changeling court connections, and Stephanos throws the parties and brings the ladies.
Recently, rumors of Drusy’s connection with vampires has piqued Stephanos’s curiosity, and evokes memories of hobgoblin blood and his Durance. However, Stephanos keeps this kind of stuff very private, and he’s not usually a private person…
