If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

"If" - Rudyard Kipling

"I can do this all day." - Captain America

The essence of the Stoic is unflinching persistence. It's courage, but not the glittering, charismatic kind that leads the glorious charge. More the kind that has you the only one standing against impossible odds - not the first out of the trenches, but the last off the beach, so to speak.

It's about doing what has to be done, not for fame or reward or acknowledgement, but because it's necessary.....and because you're the one who can.

The downside is that it leads to the kind of repression and reticence that leave the Stoic with all the emotional flair of a cinder block. Feelings are squishy, contrary, ungovernable things that need to be reined in and controlled. There's a kind of brittleness that results, leaving psychic fault lines that are dormant but not dead.

Never let them see you sweat. You are the mountain, unmoved and unmoving. The immovable object. Others look to you for reassurance, and you never let them down.

No supporting cast found for The Stoic.


Jackson Ryder (Slasher)

He comes from a working class family in the UK, where he did average in school and joined the military after graduation. There's no shortage of soldiers in his family, but the Brits never got dragged into Viet Nam. He had to go to the States to see action, which he felt was necessary to live up to expectations. He got what he wanted and then some.

War changed him. Some would say he's lost his empathy or humanity, but it's not true. He still feels, still cares, it just doesn't show. Nothing seems to phase him, now, He's gone past shell shocked and into automated numbness. His years after the war saw him continue to fight for a living, whether as a merc abroad or a hired gun in the criminal world. He's stable, and that goes a long way in either field. His latest job is as the big gun for a bank heist crew, the one who keeps everything moving like clockwork.

First Story: Slasher

A waking world of innocence

So grave those first born cries

When life begins with needles and pins

It ends with Swords and Knives

Tears for Fears - Swords and Knives

Out of the Woods

Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you

I don't think that I can really survive

I'll never break my promise or forget my vow

But God only knows what I can do right now
