There is an essential tragedy to someone who loves life, who wakes up each morning curious to see what happens next, but who when bone meets grindstone makes hard sacrifices at his own expense.

Archetype Roster Concept 



Sacrifice is the highest calling and most noble endeavor. You give and give, and then you give some more. Others need things more than you do, anyway.

Xavier is Faustina's little half Sibling from a fortunate mother and different fathers. Once upon a time, Xavier had a fraternal twin named Eponine, after the character in the folk song. Their Mother being busy, their big sister looked after them from an early age, and really is as much mother as sister still to adult Xavier. When they were five, the twins, slipped away while Faustina was doing...Xavier doesn't remember. They were playing follow the leader and Xavier really never did have much sense when it came to self preservation. They were skipping along the top of the wall, with him in front. He heard her make a small scared sound, and turned too late to catch her hand as Eponine fell.

After that they were a quiet, serious child focused on thirstily sucking up learning. It was like he was trying to achieve for two. They were soon trying little experiments on their own. It was pretty clear which direction the child would grow, and those interests were fostered. The child grew into an adult fascinated by old knowledge and chemistry in particular.

The physical differences weren't readily apparent until their age mates hit puberty and Xavier... didn't mature exactly as expected. Even if they hadn't obviously been contaminated, Xavier is sterile as a result of Xavier's condition. By the time Faustina and Xavier's contaminated status was known, their Mother had had several other children each by a different father. They also consider visa a sister, even though she's Faustina's sister, not X's by blood.

They still look up to their big sister. They are still obsessed with science. They still do little experiments outside their field to try to figure out how to people. They are friends with KTT, who they helped get reclassified as saavy, and work closely with Kat, whom they synthase essential compounds for. They achieved Professor status, which, with his sister going a little gentle on resource allocation, has allowed X to branch out some. Some of the chemicals they make now are recreational. They make like all their chemicals a little too much.

Perks and Quirks

+ Area of Expertise Chemistry (Free)

+1 to Chemistry
- Communal Mindset (Free)
+ Area of Expertise: Pharmacology (10)

Often combined with chemistry.
+ Found Item (20)

At a crucial moment in the story, you can find an object or item you desperately need. Can only be used once per story.
+ Versatile (20)

Use a Positive quality in a tagential (other) Stat Check once per Scene.
- Doomed (30)

You're going to die in a horrible way. When the time comes for your character, no rolls are made, no GP can be spent. Your time is up.
- Small Favor to Faustina (10)

She's basically how he hasn't managed to accident himself to death, plus the going little lax on his experimental supplies. He is extremely dependant on her in a host of ways.
- Sheltered (10)

The character has little or no experience outside the Sanctuary, and everything out in the wastes is new to them. They react more strongly to shocking experiences and are very naive to the ways of the wasteland. Gives a situational -1 to rolls for things dealing with the wastes, from Freak-Out Checks at Monsters, to being conned by grifters, to finding their way around.
