The IQ of a mob is the IQ of its most stupid member divided by the number of people in the mob.

The good of the many does not outweigh the good of the few.

Pragmatism is often seen as heartlessness or cruelty, but at the end of the day the Survivor is built to survive, whatever the consequences, whatever the costs. Dying is usually the easy choice. It's an end to pain, a path to glory, immortality, heroism. The last woman standing has a lot to deal with when she's standing on a pile of the corpses of people who thought they were friends and allies. She will always try to pull other people to the top of that pile too, but they're not all going to make it, and she can't help anyone at all if she's dead.

And if it comes down to the choice between you and her... you will be fondly remembered.

Being a survivor sometimes means being a pragmatist and making the hard choices. When it's you or them, you come first. You can't help anyone else if you're dead.


In the Facility

The Survivor's Door

Study of the Survivor's door reveals the shape of a woman, standing alone among dead that blend in uncountable numbers into the grain of the wood.

The Survivor's Room

Her room looks a bit like it belongs in some cozy cabin in the mountains someplace. Or maybe under the mountain. Horizontal strips of old, weathered wood cover the walls. Several heavy beams run across the ceiling, where they may not hold up the roof but they do hold up a wrought iron fixture with faux candles, and the thick chains that float a slab frame about four feet off the ground, keeping her mattress, pillows, blankets, and what looks like an honest-to-god bear skin, head and all, far from the floor. There are colorful Persian rugs strewn about, and floor-to-ceiling drapes on opposing walls, like they're covering windows that don't exist. On one side they hide the doors to her closet and bathroom. On the other they flank a stone hearth and cold fireplace. There's a pair of armchairs there, and a low table. All of the fabrics are sage green, wheat gold; all of the wood is stained walnut dark.

Memento Mori

Isle of Dread

The perfect combination of compass and pocket watch, completely analogue, attached to a piece of paracord. Elena's touchstone and a constant reminder that time spent itself faster than anyone could imagine. The watch is stuck at 6:30. The compass needle spins endlessly, unable to find true north.

Alien Mutation

No memento mori from this story yet.


At 5'9" she is taller than the average woman, and athletically built, on the willowy side of lean. It isn't all genetic. Toned muscle is lightly defined beneath her wax-white pallor, her complexion suggestive that she doesn't get out much. Perhaps she's never truly left the Facility. Her eyes are brilliantly blue, the color of gas flame, while her hair is a dark shade of auburn clipped in a slightly manic bedhead pixie 'do that she usually keeps slicked back out of her face. Most of the time she wears BDUs and fitted, long-sleeved shirts, along with soft soled, calf-height boots.

She has the accent of someone who learned British English somewhere outside of Great Britain; Received Pronunciation with a faint twist.

Oliver Tully (Isle of Dread)

Rescue Pilot
A former SAS pilot, Tully retired from active service with a bunch of medals for his chest and a bunch of metal in his leg. His profound respect for the medical staff that pieced him back together in a backwater bit of hell launched him into a second career as a medical evac pilot. He became friends with Elena Firenze while they were working in West Africa. She suggested him for a job at the festival. He's surprisingly good natured, though gruff, and as he has the approximate hotness factor of a junkyard dog (especially on this island) he's often mistaken for surly. Thus he stays largely in the background, among the medical support crew.

Vivian Lancaster (Isle of Dread)

Psychiatrist
Dr. Lancaster has an MD and a PsyD from a prestigious university on the East Coast. She was in private practice for several years, before the crackdown on opiate drug prescriptions cut dangerously close to her door. Can you fault a woman for trying to ensure her patients were comfortable, mentally and physically? Though never directly implicated, she did close up shop before losing her license and went deep and low, signing up to work for Doctors Without Borders in an effort to salvage her image. She's met a number of interesting people along the way, including Dr. Steele and Elena Firenze, and it was little surprise when she ended up on the short list of people asked to come play doctor for a bunch of entitled rich kids. After all, some of them might need their 'scrips refilled or an emergency therapy session.

Wyatt Jones (Isle of Dread)

Fire Safety Officer
Wyatt is the island's fire safety officer. He was a member of the NYFD for several years before being "discovered" by a modeling agency that wanted to do a Sexy Firemen calendar, which led to a series of somewhat bad decisions on his part, which led to him being terminated from the fire department. Coincidentally, most of the evidence of his bad judgment went up in flames during a 5 alarm port warehouse fire, though there are still a few copies in circulation. Somewhere. That might be why he got offered a job working as 'Fire Marshall' for this big island shindig; he certainly fits in better than most of the more, er, qualified individuals.

Silas Kane (Alien Mutation)

Mercenary
Silas Kane was a career criminal. His rap sheet covers everything from assault and battery to weapons smuggling. His prison survival strategy involved permanently incapacitating the biggest, baddest guy he could locate on his first day in (usually by popping the other man's eyeballs out of his skull) which earned him both the fear and grudging respect of penal system guards because, other than the intense pleasure he took in savaging other prisoners, he was a model inmate. Mostly. Some brilliant Weyland-Yutani talent scout thought he was wasted in prison and bought out his sentence, commuting him from jailbird to mercenary. He's good at it. He might even like it, if he didn't have an explosive killchip embedded in the base of his skull, guaranteeing his cooperation.

Survivor-freja.jpg

Freja (Alien Mutation)

Entertainer
Freja is the only name she goes by. She came to the Noc with big dreams, hoping to be a star, but she was rapidly eclipsed by other talent. Still, she's clung to what she has with ruthless efficiency and dug her claws in to the niche she's carved. She knows just about everyone, and just about everyone knows her.

Elena Firenze (Isle of Dread)

Born in France, raised in Canada and the US. Your family moved a lot, even changing countries twice, so making lasting connections was never easy. One thing you learned the hard way was that no one will look out for you better than you will, and so you've always put yourself first. That doesn't mean you're selfish or have no empathy - far from it. Caring about others is what gets you hurt, but you're no good to them if you're not taking care of yourself. You became an EMT to save lives, and you do. You're damn good at it. You just know when to shut it off and walk away at the end of the day. Traveling a lot and working in different places helps, too.

You got tipped off to this job by a doctor you worked with at Doctors Without Borders, a guy named Steele. You guys had a brief fling, but stayed friends and kept in touch, and he suggested you for a job with the festival medical crew. The pay is good, and it's a tropical island, so you see it as a kind of working vacation. You could use a recharge right about now.

Katja Numminen (Alien Mutation)

Growing up in the frozen lands of Finland isn't all that different than living in space - the environments are harsh, unforgiving and inhospitable. You survived there, even without much living family, and you get by just fine out here without any. EVA was a natural fit since you have mountain climbing experience and prefer the solitude of the void to the bustling tourist hub within. You keep your head down and stay out of trouble better than most. The fact that you can make some nice cash on the side by dropping off and picking up 'packages' is a bonus.
