Odain Alias: Scott
Played By: Steven Sulzer
Scott happens to have an affinity for the color green. A Psychologist would say that his narcissism leads him to enjoy the color of his eyes and hair. It's a natural green, mind, reaching down to the middle of his back, and almost to his eyebrows in front. He's lanky, a bit tall, bit over six foot. He wears a slate-grey dress shirt and slightly baggy dress pants and dress sneakers. Over this, he has a green vest, a black coat, and the brown leather "holsters" for his two decks of cards can be seen poking out the bottom of the coat.
Card magic. Each card has a spell attached to it, which may be used once, before the card needs to recharge. Cards recharge automatically, drawing bits of energy from the caster. When a card is used, its image vanishes until the spell is once again usable, when it will once again reappear. Charging time varies for each spell.
Weaknesses: Loves to play games, but may hurt people emotionally by playing around when they want to be serious. Brashly self-confident. Also a mite narcissistic. Very curious. In combat, may reach for a card that's no longer there.
Skills: Consummate card player, well versed in all major games, and very good at picking out (and performing) acts of cheating. In some cases, he will even go as far as to out-cheat the cheater, to the point of slipping them one of several extra aces he has hidden on his person. Note, however, that he won't cheat unless someone else first raises the stakes to cheating.
Equipment: A belt, with two well-worn brown leather packs strapped onto it. The one on his left contains his standard 52-card deck (Note that it has no special properties.) The larger pack on his right contains his magic tarot deck, the majority of which is destroyed. There is a notable gash in said pack, from the attack that destroyed his cards. A thigh-length black overcoat, enchanted with his (now lost) Reversal card, so it doubles as light armor. A small dagger, For Just in Case.
Personality: Highly courteous and well-mannered, but always with a twinkle in his eye, waiting for the opportunity to cut loose in one way or another. A gambler in all things. Will begin conversations with anyone, and will always try to impress them or make them laugh with his twisted worldview, just for having won the game of human emotions. Is insecure about the future, especially since his Odainification, but he may very well have walled off his real feelings from everyone with his posturing. Favorite phrase? "I bet you that such-and-such is/will this-and-that."
Connections: None in Odain.
Background: Was left on the doorstep of a church as a very young child, with his parents gunned down just 20-odd feet beyond. Grew up in the church, where he was taught the rudiments of card magic, and where he was eventually tossed out on his ear at the age of 15 for making out with a girl who was living there for much the same reasons. Lived on the streets for several years, working jobs to eat, and playing card games in the great underground casino of the city, eventually rising to defeat all the local card sharks. The night that the other city bosses put a hit on him, he was turning 21. He had just gotten out of a barfight with only 5 or 6 of his cards intact (bugger went to stab him, missed, and stabbed straight through the deck, except for the bottom few cards) and he jumped into a taxi. His taxi was expertly carbombed, and there was only a smear left on the ground. The only thing *he* knows, however, is that he's damn lucky, 'cause he vanished in a flash of white light just after he found the timer that read 00:09.
Current Purpose: He doesn't have much of a drive to get home, he sees it as a vacation of sorts. There's also the lure of the game: What is the game of Odain? The purpose behind the random transportation. Scott wants some answers...
