Faction Membership

Lone Wanderer

This is someone who lives to learn, to uncover, to discover, and then pass that knowledge on to others. They are old school, preferring putting pen to paper and chalk to board to write down their thought processes, and lecture face to face rather than via screens. They shepherd knowledge and learners, while being ever open to learning themselves.

Archetype Roster Concept 

Learning and teaching, that's what's important. You will never know even a fraction of everything there is to know, and that inspires you to try. Teaching others makes you happiest of all.

Role in The Last Road

Shaitan, the Wasteland Devil, is a Scavenger, the last of her group, the Far-Seekers. The group was known for scavenging further than any other groups, looking for new places and things to loot well beyond the picked-over known places. The group met their demise past the edges of the known Wasteland, encountering something terrible, when Shaitan was 23. She was the sole survivor, and refuses to talk about what happened. Whatever it was, it visits her in nightmares, and she loathes and avoids sleeping,if she can.

She has been on her own for five years now and, without her tribe of Scavengers she struggled to be allowed into the Sanctuary to trade. It was Vishys that made her a deal, he'd get her a Scav trading spot in the Capital in exchange for gettinng first pick of her salvage, and 20% of the Lux she earned from the rest. Sometimes he forgoes that picking in exchange for maps, or being read to, as he is illiterate.

She's known for mapping the Wasteland areas she goes to, being very sharp-witted, tactical, fierce, and clever, which has been the key to her survival out there. She drives a battered and chunked together vehicle which has a small hauling compartment in the rear for salvage. Her constant companion is a crow she simply calls "Bird".

Imperator of Arms

She owes him for getting her into Sanctuary to trade. They made a bargain. She may have a teensy soft spot for the geriatric War Kid. She'd never tell him so, though.



Weather & Explosive Ordinance Detector

Vishys' explosive detecting Fox. Cute. If she keeps pestering Bird though, she might get pecked to death.


Bird (The Last Road)

Finder of Shiny Things
The crow was injured when Shaitan found it 2 years ago. She nursed it back to health and it bonded with her for feeding it. He is good at finding shiny things in the Wastes, and knows a couple of commands. He's kind of an asshole though, tending to peck or bite at anyone who comes near him that isn't Shai.
