Introduction

Goði Zachary Erlingson, M.D.

He wears simple clothing - boots, jeans, t-shirt and camo jacket. He has no particular pride in his appearance, but he is clean in a rugged down-to-earth kind of way. His haggard face is home to a rough beard and hair that has been braided into a single long knot. All in all, he is a rather forgettable man.

If you were to get close to Zach, you'd smell a comfortable blend of expensive musk cologne and loose earth. You'd see the lines on his face that come not of age, but of horrors experienced first hand. More than any of that, though, you would see the intense eternal fire in his eyes. A fury that defies his otherwise relaxed posture and mannerisms. He always seems one wrong move away from erupting into a truly primal rage.


Zach makes a habit of blending into the least among us. It is the poor and helpless who are his charge - the strong and tired who are his flock.

Stereotypes

Vampire "An abomination to be observed and eventually returned to the Wheel."
Nephandi "Kill them all and let Odin sort it out."
Wraith "To the ignorant - a source of fear. To the initiated - a source of peace. Humanity is resilient."
Changeling "Hmm... it's possible, I guess. Never had the pleasure."
Demon "I wonder where the folklore ends and the truth begins."
Mortal "Never shall I forget the true purpose of my power - I am a shepherd to those who Sleep."

Celestial Chorus "Not sure how many of them sing to the Allfather..."
Dreamspeakers "Kindred souls - In another life, my friends."
Euthanatos "It seems we are as diverse as we are discreet. I will judge you most harshly of all."
Hollow Ones "Children, lost in a storm they will always struggle to understand."
Order of Hermes "Anytime you know something 'for sure', you risk your own soul. These guys are definitive experts... which should speak for itself."
Sons of Ether "Interesting toys, but ultimately a hollow philosophy. What is it you guys even want?"
Verbena "They seem to very nearly follow the teachings of Odin. The differences between us are not so great after all."
Virtual Adepts "Virtual power in a virtual world has no bearing on my beating heart and steel blade."
Cult of Ecstasy "They are not what I was led to believe. They have wisdom that is difficult to explain."
Technocracy "Forgive them, for they know not what they do. Destroy their progress, save their souls."

RP Hooks
Versatility - As a soldier and expert in survival and medicine, Zach is a safe bet whether equipped with the latest tactical gear or nothing more than his bare hands.

Conflict - There is no happier place for a man than to stand against that which is wrong.

Doctor - His practice is on the streets, free, and doesn't abide the law. Zachary yet holds an official Medical Doctorate.

Honesty - With below average manipulation and above average charisma giving him a very real aura of honesty, Zach makes for an unlikely but potentially useful diplomat.

Goði - Zachary is a Priest of Odin, whom he sees as the ultimate guardian of The Wheel. He will never reveal his true mission to anyone, but it bears down on his psyche in ways unclear to even himself.

Murderer - A coldly patient, calculating killer. He may give this impression to anyone clever enough to consider it.
