Local: Carver's actually from Prospect. Maybe you know him from high school, or used to frequent one of the cafes he was a bus-boy/dishwasher at. Or maybe he went to your house once, trying to sell Avon door-to-door.
Insomniac: His eyes are slightly sunken, have dark circles under them, and it's telling. Carver doesn't sleep.
Domestic Engineer: He's maybe a little unusual in that he doesn't balk at chores. In fact, he seems to very much like them. He cooks well, he cleans till places are spotless, and has developed a talent for getting blood (and less identifiable stains) out of clothes. He describes himself as a 'housewife.'
June Cleaver: Speaking of domestic engineers, Carver has a strange obsession with the fictional character June Cleaver, from 50's sitcom Leave it to Beaver. He even has a dress of hers that was worn on the show, and other memorabilia.
Lost Limbs: He's missing his right arm and his left leg, and often carries around a cane to help with his limp. He doesn't seem very sensitive about it.
Euthanasia: Some people just want it all to end. Carver makes housecalls, or gives kits to those who need them. Quick, peaceful and painless, or drawn out and miserable, for those who think they deserve it, he'll make sure you don't end up in the underworld, or reincarnated to suffer again.
Teaches: Carver has been known to teach the newly Awakened, in absence of a better teacher. Despite being an Orphan and a relative newcomer to most gatherings, he seems to mostly know what he's talking about, too. He's not picky about what faction he teaches to, either.
Takes Requests: He sometimes takes request from people who need certain magic effects cast on them or someone else. He doesn't usually ask questions, besides the 'client's' exact intent, and the outcome they desire. He doesn't always charge, either. Carver's no healer, though, so coming to him wounded for emergency care is likely a bad idea.
Willing Donor: If you have the psychic vampire/soulstealing numina, or psychic vampire flaw, he likely won't mind sharing some of his remaining life force or willpower with you. He'll feed sanguinary vampires as well, and isn't a stranger to hypovolemic shock, though he's not interested in the Kiss.
Lost Kingdom: He's the caretaker of the place, and keeps it stocked with homemade baking, meat, and drink. There are rooms on the second floor of the mansion, for "family" who need a place to stay in the city.
Cult: While not really his religious followers, per se, Carver keeps group of kinfolk and fomori at the Kingdom to watch the place for fights and intruders, and help him with his magic. They don't spy on conversations, but if something breaks out, they'll let the mage know.
Cannibal: Eat what you want! If your diet's like his, he'll probably share. He doesn't usually cook people, but the nihilistic kin can be obliging. Are you a Dancer who has nothing better to do with your victims? He'll probably want them. No body, no murder.
Project Odyssey: He's been looking for someone involved in Pentex's psychic creation/recruitment program, lately. Overseers or the test subjects themselves.
