Kevin Sanwell, Unseelie Knight

   Kevin is a high-end power build for the Federation-Apocolypse Campaign. Sadly, thanks to his unsavory nature, he’ll probably need every advantage he can get. Of course, there is hope that he can rise above his demonic origins…

Background:

   There is a popular cliche of fantasy. A school for young mages, taught by ineffectual adults who leave resolving all kinds of problems up to the students. You usually find this kind of production in the “young adult” sections, filled with cheery life lessons and morals about the perils of evil, the value of hard work and friendship, and the need for self-reliance.

   While there are thousands of literary variations, and have been not a few multimedia adaptions over the centuries, only a few have achieved enough success to be widely recognized, to have reached a high level of reality in the manifold, and to have drawn sizeable numbers of would-be students during the early days of the Opening.

   One of those fanciful schools drew the attention of thirty or forty youngsters and at least two groups of more adult adventurers. As is the nature of a strongly-established realm, visitors tended to be fitted into acceptable roles. The youngsters fitted in readily as students, while the adults tended to be put into roles as teachers, founders, and – occasionally – recruiters for the dark side of the magical realms.

   One such adventurer chose to teach a course in pistols as a “defense against the dark arts”, on the general theory that – while he was no mage – few things cramped an enemies spellcasting style like a bullet through the head. One of his friends, currently infused with enormous demonic energies, created some special weapons for the kids – pistols of terrible, demonic, magical potency. Not fully understanding the binding and corruptive nature of demonic gifts, he accidently bound the students souls to him. While he released them later, he had still infused them with demonic energies – permanently transforming them. Drawn to the darker reaches of the manifold, they joined the wilder, “unseelie”, fey – or grew to take on the roles of junior demons who can readily enter the Core.

   One youngster in particular has returned to Core Earth. After all, those other youngsters (he’s not yet powerful enough to bind an adult to him) who are willing to accept the darkness and make a pact with him “obviously” deserve to become his property, agents, power-sources, and sales-stock for a few centuries or millennia. Eventually their spirits will grow strong enough to escape the bond and their awakened powers will be theirs to keep. From his point of view, that’s fair enough. After all, he did it…
