The Deviant challenges the status quo because allowing it to get too cemented leads to stagnation and ruin. They see the rules set down by others as stifling creativity and free will, chains set up by those in power to keep the rest of the flock in line. And that is something that they simply can't abide. The Deviant isn't simply some rebel, challenging the rules for the sake of the challenge. The Deviant works to show people the nature of possibility, and the kind of power and freedom that comes only when you're willing to step out of line.

Archetype Roster Concept 

You always march to your own beat, and you enjoy bucking the system. Making others step outside of their comfort zone is something you strive for, especially if they learn something from it. Blind faith is a prison.

In the Facility

Facility Persona

The Deviant is quiet, but confident, often seeming to quietly observe what's going on, as if trying to puzzle something out. If approached, he's friendly enough, though he may seem a bit reserved at times.

Things That Linger

The Deviant often seems lost in his own head, no matter what face he's wearing. He tends to be on the quieter side, thinking problems through and acting on them with seemingly little to no warning, most of the time. The solutions are often inelegant, but effective.

The Deviant's Door

The Deviant's door is as odd as the man himself. For starters, there's no handle on the thing. For another, it seems to be carved into some sort of elaborate floral design, offering space between the wood that allows one to see inside the room while not getting a clear enough view that there's nothing for the imagination.

No memento mori from this story yet.


Marco (Carnival)

Shea found Marco at a strange point in his life -- right when Marco's father found out that Marco had been doing things with men that the church didn't approve of. With Shea, Marco found an easy acceptance and an encouragement to follow his heart. In exchange, Marco serves as the personal security of Shea and company. There's an awful lot of real gold in that little nook of the carnival, and none of the others are particularly muscular. Marco helps fill that gap, an imposing figure ready to exercise a little force to keep folks in line, when necessary.


Elizabeth (Carnival)

Egyptologist and Craftswoman
A student of Egyptology, Elizabeth was always fascinated with the old stories. Moreso when she discovered Shea's story, and realized there might be something more to him than just some dead scroll. Shea helped her escape a marriage she didn't want to be a part of, allowing her to follow her passions off the radar. In return, she crafts things for the patrons -- little prayer amulets with actual hieroglyphs or scrolls that are prayers to Shai, keeping the god's faith alive another day, bit by bit.


Horus (Carnival)

Publicity Manager
Shea found Horus on the streets, an orphan that was half-starving, but still managing to be cheerful and charismatic like the god with whom he shares a namesake. Shea showed him that there could be a better future for him, never having to suffer an empty belly and always having money in his pocket, if in return he would use his particular charms to spread the word about Shea and his curios. They've been fast friends ever since.

Shea (Carnival)

Coming to America

Shai, or Shea as he is now called, was born many, many years ago, when Egypt was just starting to get its legs under it. Long before the Pyramids, before the Pharaohs, people believed in Fate, and gave it a name -- Shai.

Egypt rose to prominence, partially under Shai's guidance. But then, other Gods of Fate intervened, having a different idea. Shai, who helped nurture inspiration and gave little nudges of destiny, was no match against gods bringing ideas of world domination and cultural imperialism.

Egypt fell, despite his best efforts, a kingdom relegated to the sands of time and synonymous with concepts of death, leaving Shai weak, nearly forgotten. Until a fever started to spread about the secrets of Ancient Egypt and Egyptology, breathing one last spark of vitality back into him.

Role in the Carnival

Egypt's plunder was spread around the world, some of it ending up in museums, others ending up in private collections, and others still ending in in areas like Carnivals. Which is how Shai found himself coming to America, part of a collection of trinkets, one of which is a book containing his story.

Now, Shai works to collect more evidence of the Egytpian Mysteries, giving people a newfound sense of wonder and curiosity. It might not be belief, per se, as only a handful of people in the world still believe that the Egyptian Gods hold any power, but it's enough to get him by.

And just as before, he seeks to spark enlightenment, but now, he shows people what power there can be in bucking a destiny written by someone that seeks to keep them in chains, and embracing a new one that violates all the rules and norms.

Alexander Brooks (Project Icarus)

Brooks is the man that the company sends in when they need to figure out what is really going on, when information is too important for pesky things like rules and laws to get in the way. They pay him well for his services, of course, but it's well-known that whatever Brooks does, it's almost completely off the books. This, of course, doesn't make for a whole lot of trust between him and the rest of the crew, but if there's one thing that you can count on Brooks to do, it's get shit done -- by any means necessary.

He does exactly what the company asks, how they ask, and doesn't ask any questions. This doesn't mean that he's always thrilled with those asks, but when you're in as deep as he is, there really isn't much other choice.
