Introduction

Rather than spoil the fun of getting to know him by posting his background, I instead offer these songs to get a feel for him.


  • Wake Me Up Inside - Evanescence
Representing his Fae Self and its struggle to awaken again, and the feeling of being trapped in a world to which one does not really belong. UPDATE: He's awake now, but the song still rocks, and represents a great deal of his life.
  • Little Lion Man - Mumford & Sons
His father's lament for how he raised his son. Alas for Thaddeus that only on his deathbed did his father recognize his failure.
  • Ain't No Rest For The Wicked - Cage the Elephant
For coming to grips with a world that presents people with tough choices, and how the "justice" system may not be the best way to help people.
  • In Time - Mark Collie
For addressing bail jumpers, or others, who attempt to avoid the consequences of their actions. Matches in tone and words how he feels about his job.
  • Sunday Morning Coming Down - Johnny Cash
When he's been looking for answers in a bottle, and found only regrets. Additionally, Johnny Cash is the inspiration for Thad's voice.

Stereotypes
Thaddeus is aware now, of the Fae at least. He's not been introduced to anything but the other Kiths yet, and only knows a small group. He finds Satyrs to be quite normal, being that he is one. He is under the impression that knockers are down to earth folk that ain't shy about saying it like it is.

RP Hooks
  • Law Enforcement
The son of an Imperial Country Sheriff's Department Sergeant who died rather famously in a Fourth of July weekend solo DUI accident back in 2012. Thaddeus had a standing offer to join that department, but left town instead. Peace Officers, Judges, Lawyers, etc. and their families may have known his father.
  • Criminals
After earning a two year Administration of Justice degree and going through the Police Academy it seems that Thaddeus changed his mind on becoming a cop. While he's new to Prospect, he has gotten a job working for a Bail Bondsman. He works to ensure that people who have bailed out of custody show up for their court dates. He may come round looking for information, and he may have taken your cousin's homeboy into custody for missing court, but he's nice about it.
  • Changelings
In Prospect since the beginning of 2013, this older Satyr didn't wake up to his true self until the beginning of March. He's got some memories, a nick-name he's used, some things about his past, but very spotty. Most of this has been provided via his Chimerical Companion, Baron, who seems to have more memories of Tarbh's previous lives than he does. He's still learning the ropes, along with his sister Grace, under the wing of of their mutual mentor Kenna Ravenscroft.
  • Drunks
Thaddeus has a drinking problem, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better now that he's had his Chrysalis. He's got a favorite watering howl or three, mostly The Sideshow, but he gets around. Maybe you were his stool neighbor at some dive in town, or elsewhere in the Southwest?
  • Dance, Music, and Lifting
A student at Robyn's School of Music and Dance, Thaddeus's primarily learning via private lessons, but he's certainly been around the school, learning to play the violin and trying some different dance styles. He also hits the gym a lot as well, where he's usually focused on free-weights and bench work rather than cardio. The question is, do you even lift bro?

Contacts
Girlfriend, wait, girlfriend? Yeah, the dour Thaddeus seems to have found a girl(s) that brings some light into his life. Apparently, she's just the right brand of weird to make this man forget his problems and enjoy living... Or was. Apparently they broke up for some reason.
Sister, though they didn't always grow up together, they used to share an apartment. There's much speculation about what relationship they have as Fae, and as far as they know are only blood relatives in the mortal world.
Teacher, both of music and dance as well as the ways of the Fae. An understanding Satyr that's helping Tarbh rediscover himself.
Mechanic, foul mouthed and fun. Once you get past the past he had or didn't have with his sister, the two get along well enough. Everybody needs a motorcycle/drinking buddy.

Notable Stats
Appealing: Whatever "it" is, he has "it" and maybe some to spare. He's better than average looking, in good shape, but he's no male model. Still, there's something about him, maybe he smells nice, moves just right, or has the right spark to his eye. He makes Charisma and Appearance rolls at -2 difficulty.

Surreal: Something about him draws attention. Maybe he moves funny, or smells like something one can't quite place, but he is different. He's a man, but, there's just something about him, something alien or exotic. Maybe he's a foreigner, hell, maybe he's just kind of retarded. Any way you slice it, he seems like a curious fellow, and perhaps even an easy mark.

Voice: He has a voice for Radio, Singing, Narration, hell, anything really. It's just a good honey-thick voice, like a Johnny Cash or Mark Collie. He adds 1 die to Social rolls involving speaking or singing.
