The Advisor is someone who has experienced life but doesn't have all the answers. They have the common sense of things figured out but for the true questions that individuals have all they can do is give their best guess. There is innate belief in humanity and general positive outlook associated with this kind of approach to life and perhaps a modicum of nosy interest too.

Risks are for other people. You know a lot about a lot, though, and you're always ready with advice. Is it your fault they don't always listen?

Melody Jacobs (Slasher)

Court Reporter
Melody Jacobs formerly Melody Hawkins has had a rough divorce and would really like nothing more than her good for nothing cop ex-husband to get what he deserves. How many times was she told everything was fine. How many nights did she wait up for him? Well karma's a bitch and Melody Jacobs can be too.

Whit Whicky (Carnival)

Carnival Accountant
Whit Whicky is the unfortunate soul that the Chiva is bound too. It's no secret the Chiva is an unwanted spirit, placed upon people as a punishment for losing at his particular game of dominos. Whit Whicky is just the most recent 'familiar' that the Chiva has bound himself too to stay with the Carnival. The man used to be a banker but upon visiting the Carnival and being cajoled into playing a game with Chiva he found himself losing 100 to 0 in short order and the old goat grinning like no tomorrow.

When Chiva claimed he couldn't leave he certainly didn't believe. When he tried to leave and everything under the sun went wrong from his car not working, to people thinking he was a poor vagrant, to some kids mugging him, and more he got the message. Now he serves as the accountant for the Carnival under the Chiva keeping the books mostly in order and being a 'normal' face for any nosy inspectors or officers to talk too.

Marialana Muniz (Carnival)

Rube Herder
Marialana came dirty and poor to the Carnival and was swept along with the show. Oh she didn't believe at first, she just thought it was a good time. She thought it was all so wonderful. She even managed to get a FREE bunk with the Carnival accountant Whick. Soon enough though things started to become to much for even the young woman to overlook. Soon enough it wasn't the thrill of the carnival but it's dirty little secret that kept her around. Some acts, some tents need someone a little in the know to hang around and entice other people to join them. Well she does that now and if she gets to hang out with myths and legends while doing it. Well she dresses much better than she used to.

Carlita Asago (Carnival)

Ineffective Warner
Abuela as she is affectionately and sometimes dismissively called was one of the Chiva's old familiar's. Now freed from that bond she stays because she has been there for to long to make a change now. She sets up the Chiva's tents, tends to things for the other tagalongs. She believes in the Chiva, oh does she believe, and she warns. She is often found trying to convince people not to go to certain tents or acts, especially the Chiva. Invariably though when the old woman is asked why she spreads the myths and legends. A little knowledge a kernel of belief or fear is the tinder to flare to worship. In truth she probably does much more harm than good and her age makes her easy to dismiss by people so the Carnival doesn't force her out.

Raul Santiago (Slasher)

Always a groomsman, never a groom. That's been Raul's life in a sentence. He comes from money and power, but he's a middle child, so none of it will be his in the end. He did good in school, but others always did slightly better. He was a track star for a time, but blew his knee out in college. Rinse, repeat.

He reads a lot. Travels a lot. Writes and even acts, but he's better at coaching others than doing it himself. He goes from place to place, doing whatever work he can get, then eventually gets bored and moves on. At present he's the overnight manager at the Eager Beaver Lodge, which mostly means he does some bookkeeping and watches reruns on late-night TV. It's not terribly exciting, but it leaves him time to write!

Chiva (Carnival)

Coming to America

1917 Puerto Rico joined the United States of America as a Territory

That same year a wave of young Puerto Rican immigrants hit Florida, New York, and Chicago all looking for that American dream. With them came the culture of the Carribean... Beautiful women, succulent food, and of course their game Dominos. Belief can be such a small thing. Don't make a face or it'll get stuck like that. Throw salt over your shoulder for luck. If you lose a game of Dominos completely you get a Chiva. Small beliefs are still beliefs and sometimes they cast long shadows. No one wanted a Chiva and the only way to get rid of it was to give it to someone else by beating them the same way. It was a ritual of sorts and from belief and rituals came the American Chiva.

A spirit named after a Goat for bad luck and annoyance. Gain a Chiva by losing and your luck is sour. Give them to someone else and your luck is good. No one wants a Chiva, unloved, and unwanted but still they play the games and say the names. Tethering the spirit to the land.

In the Carnival

Veles Assistant Middle Management is unpopular and what better place for one of the most unwanted spirits to be than assisting the big boss and annoying the acts. It just fits really the goatish opinionated man and always being avoided and shooed away with his dull talk of schedules and needs and duties and the like. The one thing everyone knows is don't get to far out of line because the Chiva meddles in luck and mortals rarely win his game. Unlucky mortals in a carnival of myth might just ruin someone's night.


OOC: What is a Chiva?

Chiva Goat Spirit Bad Luck A variant of Dominos played in the Carribean

When playing the game of dominos you can lose 100 to 0 or 10 games to 0 depending on the variant. When you do this you get a Chiva. It is an invisible goat spirit that brings you bad luck. The only way to get rid of this spirit is to pass it on to someone else by beating them 100 to 0 or 10 games to 0. When you pass off the Chiva you are considered 'lucky' again because it's lucky to get rid of it. Also winning by those margins are normally very hard so it is considered lucky for it to happen in the first place. This is a Puerto Rican / Carribean folklore that exists around the game of Dominos and has for quite a long time. It's really more of a superstition than a full-blown myth but even today when I'm playing dominos with other Puerto Ricans we talk about giving each other Chivas.

A waking world of innocence

So grave those first born cries

It ends with Swords and Knives

Out of the Woods

Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you

I don't think that I can really survive

I'll never break my promise or forget my vow

But God only knows what I can do right now
