[[Tardigrade]] :: [[Oliver Scarboro]] :: [[Oliver]]

Aspects
High Concept: Infamous psychopathic mastermind wearing the skin of an insightful, inspiring, and manipulative leader.
Trouble: The ends justify the means.
Aspects:
  • Once Smitten Twice Shy: My infatuation with Meridian has matured from crush to caution and respect.
  • Whatever it takes: Meridian's utterly ruthless pursuit of her cause was inspirational to me. I have structured my life around exceeding her capacity to control and manipulate.
  • Always Another Layer: Nothing is exactly what it seems - everything is always misdirection, intrigue, subterfuge, and conspiracy.
  • Maybe a Mobster?: My ties to the underworld are deep and strong and profitable. I’m not in any organization but they all owe me and I owe them.
  • Follow My Lead: I’m a terrible manager, but you’ll follow my lead. Not like you have other options.

I Am Death: I don't need to kill every fortnight. I just need to destroy someone's life.

Fate Points
Refresh: 5 Current Total 3 - Resist Ellen's influence
Approaches
Careful Clever Flashy Forceful Quick Sneaky
+1 +4 0 +1 +2 +3
Sophant Characteristics
Stunts
  • Leverage: +2 to Sneakily gain an advantage over a tool by using my criminal connections to create a powerful motive to do what I tell you.
  • Merciless: +2 to Cleverly gain an advantage over a tool by using my insights into motivation and behaviour.
  • Favours: Once per session I can reach through the underworld to call in a favour.

Fourth Horseman: Once per session I need to break a tool in a manner that advances my agenda. Failure to do so causes 1 point of mental stress that can not be cleared except by breaking a tool. A 2 point slot takes two breakings. This can add up.

Magic: Spells and Powers
Augmentation: Genetic and Cybernetic
Damage Resistance and Healing
  • +1 vs non-chemical physical stress
Teams:
Stuff
  • Celestes Strong: I can lift 5000 Kg, jump 5m straight up, and walk through normal barriers like they're not even there.
  • Celestes Tough: It takes armour piercing rounds to get through my skin and even then they don't go far. I can use my strength without hurting myself. Radiation, vacuum, huge accelerations - I'm fine with them all. Celestes have 5 Physical Stress slots (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and 4 Consequence slots (2, 4, 6, 8).
  • Celestes Fast: My reaction times are significantly faster than normal humans, meaning I can run (30+ 10 x Quick) Km/h, dodge almost anything a normie throws at me, and think faster than you expect. Celestes have 2 Mental Stress slots (1, 2).

Appearance

Some would say nerdy. Slight build, straight hair cut in a bowl shape, wears loose logo t-shirts and baggy pants. Likely to be unnoticed or avoided in a crowd because he looks like someone that would cling to you.

Backstory

On March 1st, 2034, his IRL life was unassuming, but Oliver's virtual life was a whirlwind of excitement, power, and destiny. His job as a network technition and administrator was really a cover for his position as Tardigrade, leader of the extremist Transhumanist faction called the Directed Quantum Evolutionists, or DQE.

His real name is Oliver Scarboro.

As a high functioning psychopath with fairly good impulse control under most circumstances, Oliver does not consider the people around him to be real and sentient creatures. To his mind, they are tools to be used to further his ambitions or impede his enemies' progress. Tools that serve neither purpose are either broken, or controlled by someone else. In either case, they should be repaired or recycled as soon as feasible. Machiavelli, Kahneman, and Neitzsche are his historical inspiration. Meridian was his idol.

Before March 10th, he knew that Meridian was Miranda, and Melissa, and Willow. He kept his knowledge secret even from her. Now that Willow is dead, he has assumed full control of the DQE and presided over merging with PD to form PE. He learned an awful lot about dealing with some of his urges from Dexter.

On March 12 he started the conversion into Homo Celestes.
