Incubus - Drive

I feel the fear of uncertainty
Stinging clear
And I, I can't help but ask myself
How much I let the fear
Take the wheel and steer

It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague
Haunting mass appeal
But lately I'm
Beginning to find
That I should be
The one behind the wheel

Whatever tomorrow brings I’ll be there
With open arms and open eyes

So if I
Decide to waiver my chance
To be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine
And hold my own and drive?

It's driven me before
And it seems to be the way
That everyone else gets around
But lately I'm
Beginning to find
That when I drive myself
My light is found


Beauty, art, music, song, these are the things that life is about, and he sees them all around him, everywhere, in everything and everyone.

He has to express himself in whatever way he can.

He wants to leave his own mark, too.

Archetype Roster Concept 

You have to express yourself, in whatever way you can. Beauty, art, song, these are the things life is about, and you see them all around you. They're everywhere. You want to leave your own mark, too.

Role in The Last Road

Born in Sanctuary, the child of Pure parents, Arthur was himself marked Pure as his albinism is a random defect and not genetic. He was raised Fortunate and showed a talent for playing and singing songs, but his real gift was designing musical instruments and improving upon them. He became an Artisan, and his life would take an unexpected turn when, interested in a challenge, he designed a new wheel for a Charioteer. It was like nothing seen before, and it made all the Children want him to design for them - wheels, weapons, rides. Anything.

This created a problem.

War Kids usually make their own stuff and trade freely within their culture, but since Arthur got lux for his design and more were willing to pay, the designers among the Children wanted to be paid in lux, too. The Mother of War put a quick stop to the chaos by pulling some strings and getting Art reassigned to the Children. Now he would design for everyone.

Renamed Art, he was blindsided by this change, and at first was enraged. It didn't help that the War Kids saw this Pure newcomer as an imposter. Sure, his albinism made him look like them, and they coveted his designs, but he wasn't one of them. He wasn't sick, a half-life, and he wasn't raised in the Church of V8.

Over time he's proven himself and they've gradually come to respect him, if not fully accept him. He's also come to accept his new lot in life, and enjoys going out into the wastes to see his newest creations in action. It wasn't the future he had in mind, but he's come to terms with it.

He later became part of a crew with himself as Gearhead (and sometimes Doof Warrior on major expeditions), Vishys as Centurion, and Sebas as Charioteer; his crewmates distinguished themselves in combat and later rose to the rank of Imperator. He bears them no jealousy, for his heart is in his creations, not war. He rarely leaves Sanctuary, usually only either to join his friends in war, or to test out the vehicles he creates, and sometimes to Bartertown, in search of rare materials and objects to use in his work-- he still has money, for he still does work on the down-low for Fortunate clients.

  • Gearhead Artiste: Art rarely stoops to ordinary mechanic work nowadays, aside from his own crew's chariot, but he is often sought out to design and modify new vehicles for those who ask. As a vehicular engineer and peerless wheel designer, he strives for efficiency and striking, sometimes brutal beauty.

  • Luthier: His original gig, he still makes instruments, especially guitars, for those Fortunate clients who seek him out. He also makes them for Doof Warriors, which he might well have become full-time had he not been so good at building chariots.

  • Engineer: he's quite willing to apply his talent to experiments outside his usual gigs, having helped build Arachne's medbay rig.

  • Traveling Companion: He sometimes goes to Bartertown to acquire unusual and beautiful things.

  • Mentor: As a misfit, he often takes under his wing those amongst the War Children who don't fit in.

  • Musician: Though he doesn't often take the role of a Doof Warrior anymore, he's an accomplished guitarist and is happy to teach aspiring Doofs and to play for his fellow War Children.

  • Universal Donor: One of the ways that he contributes to his new(er) caste is by donating blood to his War-Brothers and Sisters.
