Archetype Roster Concept 

You're all going to die. Just watch. This will never work out, and you told them so, but they ignored you. Anything that does work out is just setting you up for a bigger letdown later.

In the Facility

Things That Linger

Tends to be sarcastic. Almost always a writer -- not always the same kind of writing, and not always professionally, but he's fond of the pen.

Hot Math (The Last Road)

Bean Counter
Like the name says, Hot Math has a head for numbers. Even among the Savvy, he distinguished himself early on through his quick ability to grasp abstract concepts and complex systems, to say nothing of his rapid calculations. He counts and plans supplies for the Sanctuary.

Since becoming contaminated, his official duties have diminished. In his free time, which is to say, when he's not feeling too hale, Hot Math has been coming across various ways of expanding his mental experience while his body deteriorates. His connection with Hexeyed Charlie, to whom he trades accounting and bookkeeping support for who-knows-what, must be one of these.


Fynch (The Last Road)

Fynch won't say where she's come from, hell: she won't say much of anything at all. It isn't like the woman can't speak, it's only just that she seems to be saving her breath. Besides; why would she? Her reckless companion Hexeyed Charlie's always going on about something, freeing Fynch up to go about making moonshine rather than conversation - hearing things that might otherwise get lost... Small, swift, and secretive, she's just about survived as a Scavenger - but like a bright spark deprived of oxygen, it may not be for much longer.


Dr. Hal Lockwood (Project Icarus)

Dr. Hal Lockwood is a real doctor -- okay, so he’s a PhD. That counts! He’s a homegrown Earthling who studied psychology on Earth for a lot of years and manged to not fuck it up for long enough -- despite having some serious odds stacked against him, like a shitty childhood -- to go on to graduate.

Lockwood was always a bit weird. Early on, he got it into his head that aliens have pretty much taken over human society on every level, and mind control by these aliens is a very real thing. It’s what got him into psychology in the first place, even though he’s always wanted to be a writer (and still writes plenty on the side, from academic papers to fiction). He specializes in forensic and investigative psychology with a focus on extraterrestials. If he has to, he’ll handle personal case files, but he finds most people messy and hopeless and isn’t great at giving advice.

He ended up at Penumbra because a school rival, unbeknownst to him, recommended him for the job -- so that Lockwood could replace him. His rival, Ken Alcott, had no interest in sticking around...for some reason. He let Lockwood take over without Lockwood even knowing, as Alcott was long gone by the time Lockwood got to the station. Lockwood is secretly afraid of space, but he really, really needed a job.

Now he’s stuck here, at least for the time being, sniffing out mind control and anything out of the ordinary, not quite comfortable with Penumbra (or authority in general), prone to drinking too much, sleeping too little, and running his big mouth at the most inopportune times.


Hendrix "Squid" Lester (Bonds of Blood)

Hendrix Lester is Lennon's fraternal twin and Morrison's kid brother. He gets along with those two pretty well, but hates his father with every bone in his body. Despite his cool name, many folks call him by his nickname, Squid -- he's so named for his ever-inky fingers. (Plenty of people still call him Hendrix, though. He won't punch you for it.) Squid's got aspirations to be a writer, and is pretty much writing every chance he gets. Though he's a fiction writer at heart, he occasionally writes for the school paper. He's also paranoid, twitchy, and prone to losing his temper and getting in fights, which results in plenty of detention and talkings-to by guidance counselors and principals. "For such a smart kid," they say, "you should know better."
