With A Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker

What would you do if I sang out of tune?

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song

I will try not to sing out of key

Mad World - Gary Jules

And I find it kinda funny, I find it kinda sad

The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had

bury a friend - Billie Eilish

What do you want from me? Why don't you run from me?

What are you wondering? What do you know?

Why aren't you scared of me? Why do you care for me?

When we all fall asleep, where do we go?

Gravity - John Mayer

Oh I'll never know what makes this man

With all the love that his heart can stand

Dream of ways to throw it all away


Oh, gravity is working against me

And gravity wants to bring me down


Oh twice as much ain't twice as good

And can't sustain like one half could

It's wanting more

That's gonna send me to my knees

"Deep within us—-no matter who we are-—there lives a feeling of wanting to be lovable, of wanting to be the kind of person that others like to be with.
And the greatest thing we can do is to let people know that they are loved and capable of loving."

-The World According To Mister Rogers


There is just something about him. He's approachable, at the very least, sometimes he's magnetic. Trust in him comes fast, so opening up is easy. He can draw you in and make you feel like the only person in the room. When you are done, you tend to leave better than you came.

He tends to give thoughtful advice but there is no promise of it being any good. But he did think about it and that has to count.

Your secrets are safe with him. Your hopes and dreams and worries and cares too. Your burdens are his burdens because no one should struggle alone.

Trust matters and he will do his best not to break it. He gives it easily but understands that isn't the case with everyone. He handles with care.

Archetype Roster Concept 



There's always that one person that people just innately trust and can talk to about pretty much anything, and you're that person. You help them with their problems and share the weight of their burdens.



In the Facility

Facility Persona

"The only thing that burns in hell is the part of you that won't let go of your life: your memories, your attachments. They burn 'em all away. But they're not punishing you,' he said. 'They're freeing your soul. If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. If you've made your peace then the devils are really angels freeing you from the earth." ― Bruce Joel Rubin, Jacob's Ladder


More to Come

Things That Linger

The Confidant, by design, carries others burdens. Quietly, he has collected his own. One thing from each incarnation. One trait from each life carries over into another, a growing burden. These are the things he carries, for better or worse.

  • Chance: Be it sign language or body language, one doesn't need a voice to speak to The Confidant.
  • Henry: No matter what The Confidant does or who he is, he takes his profession or vocation seriously and strives to be as professional as he can.
  • Jody: The Confidant has a handful of old fashioned, gentlemanly habits from another time and place.
  • Derek: Never an inch below six feet, The Confidant is going to be tall, one way or another.
  • Hodr: Of all the possibly overactive senses, it's The Confidant's sense of smell that remained sharp.
  • Teller: The Confidant may never know a good night's rest.
  • Cash: Creativity flows from The Confidant. Art, music, whatever...just don't expect him to always be good at it.

The Confidant's Door

A male figure with several other figures leaning on him.

The Confidant's Room

The Confidant's room is starkly clinical. From the cool, gray linoleum floor to its beige walls, to the extra long twin sized bed with white and tan blankets it seems to be designed to house a hospital patient. There is a desk across from the bed and beside the entrance to a walkthrough closet that leads to the bathroom.

The closet is filled with generic clothes in plain colors. There are drawers full of dark underwear and white socks. The floor is home to a few pairs of footwear. Slippers, leather steel toed boots and trainers. All white or gray clean and unused. There is still space for his Mementos, two shelves over the clothes, one on each side.

The bathroom is white and stainless steel. Even his grooming products are perfectly generic. There is only a shower, toilet and sink.

Memento Mori

Isle of Dread

A single black, behind the ear, hearing aid, right ear. He lost the left one in the jungle.

Alien Mutation

An empty pill bottle. He just ran out of medicine at the worst possible time.

Prosperity's Price

A black cane with a silver and ivory handle. Given to him by a fellow Pinkerton agent. Part vital walking aid, part reminder of the happiest time of his life.

Slasher

A black boombox with a cassette of Peter Gabriel's 1986 album So, flipped to Side Two, inside.

Carnival

No memento mori from this story yet.

Project Icarus

His wedding ring, a silver band made of three distinct branches, entwined.

Bonds of Blood

The polished black acoustic guitar that Cash never left home without.

The Last Road

No memento mori from this story yet.


Notes

Fun Facts!

  • He loves cheap, processed foods. Kraft dinner, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, flavor-aid, and ramen are good enough for him, thank you very much.
  • The Confidant recognizes regional accents from all over the world. He can tell the difference between BBC and Estuary English, for example. He can mimic them fairly well. His Theory: An instant method of connection.
  • The Confidant doesn't drink alcohol, nor does he smoke.
  • He previously spoke in a bland, newscaster-style American accent. However, it has changed and evolved into an American mixed bag with expressions and colloquialisms ranging from coast to coast.

HodrTF01.jpg

Hodr

Faces (Marksman)

At the Carnival of Wonders, a very obvious blind man throwing sharp objects at a young woman was quite the draw. For this reason alone, Hodr, a frequent shapeshifter, would use his true face in his act. (PB: Tadhg Murphy)

Measuring at six feet, four inches tall, The Confidant is tall. He has a broad and sturdy build and is amazing shape. Greek god-Gym Rat kind of body. His skin is quite fair and his eyes are big, blue, and expressive. If his size and ghostly pallor don’t draw the eye, the red hair just might. The loose curls and gentle waves of his thick copper hair fall just short of his shoulders. He has a classic set of handsome features. Perfect nose, nice cheekbones and a square jaw. He has a gingery shadow of a beard. His dress is plain to the point of generic. T-shirts, hoodies, plaid PJ bottoms. His feet are usually bare.

SRTravisR01.jpg

Travis Rye (Alien Mutation)

Glorified Gun For Hire
When Henry arrived last year, he met Travis while slumming it with the refinery workers. They saw one another from across the dive bar and if you ask Travis, he saw fireworks. Or maybe it was just the low light, the red hair, and strong liquor. Either way, it was one amazing month before Travis had to leave. He had just signed on with Weyland-Yutani. A real gig, unlike the freelance security work he'd been doing. Neither wanted to end it so they have been carrying on long distance ever since. It just so happens that his assigned ship, the USCSS Ludovica, is coming to The Noc just in time for he and Henry to reunite and head back to Earth. Travis Rye is living his best life.

SRWyatt01.jpg

Wyatt Murphy (Alien Mutation)

Ex-Colonial Marshal
Everyone knew that Wyatt Murphy was crazy. His last two psych evaluations said as much but it was a harmless sort of crazy. He can talk all day about conspiracies, coverups, wild space creatures and insane machinations hundreds of years old. You just listen and wave him off, simple as that. Last year, the Marshals contracted a new psychologist. Now, as his shift is ending, he's been told not to return. Henry Erickson's evaluation did him in. And if he has to crash and burn, he's taking that ginger snitch with him.

SRMarla01.jpg

Marla Crick (Alien Mutation)

Engineer
It has always been Marla and Henry. They've known one another since grade school and got married as soon as they turned eighteen. They went to college together, both with big dreams. Marla had a head for technology. Henry was great with people. They were a good balance but it wasn't meant to be. They share a daughter and co-parented quite well until Henry got his assignment. The idea of both of them being in space bothered her. She's been on the USCSS Hephaestus as an engineer for ages while he was on Earth. So she's cashing out her shares and heading home, along with him, to reunite with their little girl. It's been a long year without her.

SRStella01.jpg

Stella Weiss (Prosperity's Price)

Prostitute
Stella Weiss was the child of German immigrants, a doctor and a midwife. She was about ten when sickness took her mother and her father was lost the following Reaping. The orphan was taken in by Dolly Lancaster, a kind hearted old spinster. Stella held a candle for Jody growing up but it was a Thompson boy that stole her heart. She got married at seventeen. The Thompson boy was a reckless and drunk gambler. When he got lost in a flood the year after their wedding, Stella was left with nothing. Being not Of The Blood left her with few options but the oldest professions. When Jody blew back into town, he and Stella immediately reconnected. Now, he's her most regular customer.

SRRuby01.jpg

Ruby Hoak (Prosperity's Price)

Jody's Personal Assistant?
Before Emma, Jody's wife, passed, she made him promise to look after her little sister. The both of them were orphans and only had one another. Ruby was everything her older sister wasn't, sassy, crassy and driven by more than finding a husband and raising children. When Emma died and Jody made the choice to go to Prosperity, Ruby didn't put up any fuss. But her dreams of freedom out West were dashed in a hurry when she realized she was the caretaker of an laudanum addled widower. Recently, she's taken it upon herself to assist the local medicine women and apothecaries. She always had an interest and anything is better than dealing with Jody every day.

SRRIrene01.jpg

Irene Colton (Prosperity's Price)

Outlaw. Widow.
Nobody made much of Irene Colton joining up with the Widow gang. She was a Colton, after all and some things just seem like destiny. She married Rusty Davis, a tanner, before she turned sixteen and would soon bear a daughter. She was a colicky, needy child and her husband lost as much sleep as she did. The Reaping came later that year and she woke up to find Rusty but her daughter was no where to be found. Driven to madness by sleep deprivation, he had sacrificed their infant girl.

No one knows what happened next. Only what was found just after New Years. Rusty Davis' skin was strung up on a tanning rack. Only god knows what happened to the rest of him. She joined the Black Widow gang not long after.

Known for her wicked mind and cruel heart, Irene is the one who will get things done. No matter how dark, ugly or unsavory the task, you can count on Irene.

Now, as the Widow return to Prosperity for The Reaping, a problem has arisen. Jody DeWitt is home. She grew up with Jody. They were best friends, thick as thieves before adulthood pulled them apart. Now that their lives have taken different directions, how will they fare on opposite sides of the law?

SRKaspar01.jpg

Kaspar Henrik (Slasher)

Film Student
The Sidekick

Kaspar Henrik is an exchange student who most well known as "That creepy German guy". He and Derek became fast friends at Cal Arts while most tend to avoid the guy. His personal project that can only be described as "German Arthouse Porn". The Arthouse part is how he thinks he'll get away with all the nudity.

He quietly takes notes and snaps polaroids as he hangs out with Derek. He knows his buddy's got an issue so he helps him out, making him priceless in Derek's eyes.

SRPaige01.jpg

Paige North (Slasher)

Housekeeper at the Eager Beaver Lodge
Paige is the new girl at Eager Beaver, having arrived and started just a day before the influx of guests. She came by way of hitchhiking with nothing but a single backpack.

In the chaos of a new season, no one is asking a lot of questions. Paige likes it that way.

SRMaisie01.jpg

Maisie Shaw (Carnival)

Target Girl
The Target. The girl on the wheel. The one with the apple on her head.

SRNTwist01.jpg

Nina Twist (Project Icarus)

Investigative Assistant
On paper, she's Teller's Investigative Assistant.

Penumbra hired her to be his sober companion.

Teller thinks she's a paid snitch.

SRConf1Vivi01.jpg

Vivian Hellenbrand (Bonds of Blood)

Chorus/Choir Teacher
Vivian has only been teaching at Lake Havasu High School for three years but has known Cash since he sat at her piano bench many years ago. She took the job as his urging and it's been a tough fit. She's known to be cold and tough on her students, but only if you have real talent.

She can be hard on Cash at times.

She'll play piano for Drama, in a pinch, if she is asked very nicely.

ConfSRJolene01.jpg

Jolene Chapel (Bonds of Blood)

Homeschool Student/Part-Time Library Assistant
After a chance meeting back in the fall left Cash with the impression that Jolene was dead.

She got better. She's been in isolation since December and now as Spring begins, she's out and about and doing fairly well. Well enough to work in the library part time and silently stalk the boy who was so kind to her last fall.

ConfSRMaylis01.jpg

Maylis (The Last Road)

Breeder/Artisan
45dw

B-

Pure

Fortunate

They say you never forget your first and this is true of Cinder. His brief time as an exclusive Breeder began with Maylis, who was almost a decade his senior. Maylis smothered the fires of a youthful crush but nurtured a kinship as they celebrated the birth of his first child, a girl, Pure and healthy. She is a skilled seamstress as well and keeps Cinder in the finery he has grown accustomed to. They are a reliable breeding pair, sharing a total of two Pure children and one on the way. This has made them close, even if she is sometimes more motherly than anything else.

ConfSRExo01.jpg

Exo (The Last Road)

Centurion

Warchid

When Cinder wanted to learn to shoot, he took note of Exo, A young Centurion and regular visitor who only wanted be read to and trade stories. Exo is glad to teach Cinder about weapons, the gritty tech of the Garage, and what lies in The Dust beyond the safety of the Rock.

Chance01.jpg

Chance Reed (Isle of Dread)

Helping people is what you do. Your open and helpful nature makes people like and trust you rather easily, and that makes helping them easier. You weren't always deaf, it set in over a few years in adolescence. As a result, you can lip-read and are able to speak (with impairment), and still have very minor hearing, mostly just percussive sounds. Your interest in helping others led you to getting trained as an EMT. You enjoy what you do.

This is something of a working vacation for you. You're being paid well to work 12-hour shifts and be on-call the rest of the time, which isn't as bad as it could be given the locale and festivities.

HenryE01.jpg

Henry Erickson (Alien Mutation)

You studied at prestigious schools on Earth, and now have your first longterm assignment after being hired by Penumbra - the Noc. You did various employee evaluations at different sites, but never stayed anywhere for long before coming here nearly a year ago. All deep space jobs require monthly psychiatric evaluations, and the Noc is no different. Deep space and year long shifts can break anyone down, so Penumbra has people like you to help guard against it. You also are contracted separately by the Colonial Marshals to do their evaluations. As your first year on station nears an end, you've found it both challenging and rewarding. You've held up well, but look forward to the three month leave coming up soon.

JodyD01.jpg

Jody DeWitt (Prosperity's Price)

Joseph Gideon DeWitt, or Jody, as everyone calls him, grew up and became a lawman. I mean, he's a DeWitt. That's in his blood. When his brother left and became a Pinkerton, Jody decided to do just the same. He left at 17 and didn't look back.

He was still a rookie agent when a strike turned into a riot and left him with a permanent limp. He spent that time at a desk reading and learning and became an excellent detective as a result. He could obtain obscure information, put all the pieces together and gain a dramatic confession as easy as breathing. He even earned a nickname: Father Joe, The Confessor. He was lucky enough to bag himself a wife too.

So why is he back in Prosperity?

The wife, killed in childbirth. The son, too weak to live. He buried his family in February and took the next train back to Nevada. He didn't look back then either. He easily fell into a new job as deputy. Not that he does a great deal more than nap in the station's cells but still, he's there when you need him. With the Reaping approaching, his first since he left home, he considers this part of the preparation. Conserving energy.

DerekB01.jpg

Derek Bloom (Slasher)

It's okay, you can tell him things. Everybody does. He was built to be a firm shoulder to cry on, and he won't tell anyone. Honest. Unless it's kinky and you're famous and the tabloid pays well. A guy has to eat!

He's going to be big one day, just ask him. He'll tell you. Not modeling or acting, those days are probably behind him. No, he's settled in on the other side of the camera, filming the world all around him and telling its stories. True stories. He's great at interviews, has an instinct for stories, and an eye for framing it all. Where's he from? What was his childhood like? Silly you! He's here to tell your story, not his. Just sit down, relax, and look directly at the camera while you tell him all about it.

HodrTF01.jpg

Hodr (Carnival)

Coming To America

My brother will tell you all about how long we've been here. It's the Indians, then us. All the way back to the first millennium. For a while, things were tough and we were almost lost but our people eventually came. Came from the cold Northern lands with a fire in their heart for the old gods. Among those gods are Odin's twins of light and dark. Baldr the beautiful and pure and then...me. Hodr. The dimwitted blind god tricked by Loki into poisoning his brother.

I am not dimwitted.

Christianity came along and suddenly our believers were heathens. They were stripped of the traditions that fit theirs. Solstice. Yule. The rest is meant to be thrown away and replaced with Jesus and boy, are we feeling it now. Our faithful are dwindling. Nothing works as it should anymore. I know the sun is setting.

In the meantime, we get the worship where we can. The carnival opened the door for me to gain a small, close following of believers. Believers I love. Believers who need me. They keep me going and in return, I won't let them down.

The Blind Marksman

We've been with the Carnival since near its beginning, "Logan" and I, going by Holden, just happened to cross paths with them in some town up north. I think Baldr dreamt about it and they took him on as a Roustabout. They didn't know what to do with me but I planned ahead. I don't miss, you see. Point me in the right direction and I'll hit anything. Or in my case, I miss.

The Blind Marksman has been a sideshow staple since then. I didn't use my own face, at first. After I couldn't shift at a new stop, I went out there as myself. It turned out to be a better draw. And I was moved to the sideshow. I'm not bothered though. I love the sideshow and I love its freaks. It's simply strange how much a difference appearance makes. For good or ill.

Today, I have my own wagon. Big upgrade from the tent. I have two lovely target girls, one exotic assistant and more blades and bows than I know what to do with. I have The Children, my closest and strongest believers. I love and I am loved in return. I may complain but I wouldn't trade these folks for the world.

Conf1Teller02.jpg

Dana Teller (Project Icarus)

Grandma always said: Stay Out Of Space.

Dana Wynn Teller grew up on a space station, the son of a bright chemist and his adventurous mining engineering wife. His father's side has worked for Penumbra for generations, stretching back to Henry Erickson, former psychologist for the ill-fated Tenotchitlan Station. His surviving daughter grew up and became a strong matriarch of her old money family.

Teller, as he prefers to be called, grew up with a wild streak that was only exacerbated by meeting Braden Bloom on his first day of high school. The pair took part in petty crime and unchecked drug use. Teller's family history gave him more legal leeway than he deserved and that extended to Braden.

Both were bright young men and straightened up long enough to seek out high education. Teller was interested in Psychology and that would be the degree he would earn. In the meantime, he found himself in a group marriage and watching his best friend plummet towards rock bottom.

As Braden found religion and left to pursue further studies, Teller doubled down on his relationships, education and later, a cushy job at Penumbra. First, as an assistant staff psychologist but he began to show a talent for investigative work and he was moved into Internal Affairs and partnered with Alexander Brooks.

His last assignment went poorly. Too much drug use, not enough sleep, evidence issues, you name it. Thanks to Brooks' assisting in covering Teller's mess, he kept his job but they are keeping a close eye, even sending along a "sober companion" to keep Teller in line.

Now, he and his wife, Mira are heading to the same place for once. Teller and Brooks have a new investigation and Teller is out to regain trust. He doesn't know he's on a crash course with his absent husband, his sister-in-law, and a variety of personalities.

Conf1CashB03.jpg

Cash Freeland (Bonds of Blood)

Growing up with Cash Freeland was all about watching a smart, friendly, if somewhat hyper kid turn around in an instance and meltdown from seemingly tiny things. A moment later, he could pulls it together and is back to something close to normal. He grew into being a bundle of nerves, quirks and random anxieties. He won't meet your eyes when you talk to him. He's attached to leather jackets like Linus to a blanket. And he's constantly fidgeting. People got used to it and by high school, he was just another "weird kid."

After his twin sister, Ashley, Cash's next greatest love was music. A neighbor lady named Vivian gave piano lessons out of her living room. Of course, Stacey in her never-ending climb to the top of the social ladder, placed both of her children. Only Cash really took to it and remains under Vivian's tutelage to this day. Without a family of her own, she took to the odd little red headed boy and raised him up to play piano, guitar and then sing as he showed interest.

The family business in roofing and flooring shined a light on another talent of Cash's. He's a savant when it comes to the mechanical. He was a fast learner and sponged up everything.

As a rising freshman, he worked full time with his father. Every penny was saved until he met his goal the following summer. His parents matched it and off they went to Radio Shack. Cash was going to broadcast his own radio show and hit the airwaves just at the start of sophomore year. His equipment just barely covered town but he still put his all on it. Cash became a different person on the air. Funny, energetic and informed about music. He began with classics and moved to top 40 and finally taking requests.

How he ended up being a radio relationship guru is murky but at some point he began to dedicates Friday nights to These Friday Feelings a call in show for those lovelorn teens to poor out their hearts and dedicate songs to the ones they hold dear. Special segments includes: "It's Friday, Am I In Love?", Blind Items with Ash, and the Open Forum. Cash's advice is actually really solid and he had no problem talking to one on one to anyone while the music played.

By last Spring, Cash seemed to be living his best life. He was dating Spear Thistle and while he loved the perky goth, he didn't love the way things were escalating. It scared him. His involvement with extracurriculars was well on its way to locking down a good college. But his father had been grooming him to take the family business. His mother wanted him to keep moving up, keep being the best. Finally, imagined or not, Cash began to feel the pressure of life, profoundly.

The rumor mill began to churn and his sister, Ashley's affair with Amy Lester (of all people) was about to come to light. Ashley was all about the social climb and feared for her reputation. A Freeland and a Lester? What would people say? Cash made a choice and vanished just after the end of term. No hide or hair of the teen. Missing posters went up even though local police were sure this was a case of a runaway. He took his guitar, after all. Clothes too.

But then...

He returned just a week before his senior year and the airwaves were on again. Cash didn't talk about what happened. But a few things became certain over the course of the first term. He and Spear were not on speaking terms.. Hector, an illegitimate Thistle who moved into town in January, is a singular target of Cash's newly discovered scorn and cruelty. And now, Cash doesn't want to go into the family business anymore.

Most importantly, Cash keeps the records spinning and the phone lines on.
