Senca

   Senca is a special-request character for a visiting player. Many of the the background characters in the campaign have no formal character sheets; there are notes on various figures, on the nature of various “gods” and their assorted minions, and on many other topics in the campaign background – but most of them will never be involved with the characters, so the details are unimportant. On the other hand, since the request fit tolerably well into what (little) information there was available from some Inuit myths – and since all characters must fit into the campaign (and never just appear or disappear) – here’s a detailed writeup on this particular shamanistic demigodling.

If you succeed, you’ve built up the power to be used – which can either be unleashed immedietly, or be saved to be unleashed with a short invocation later. If you fail, the magic goes wild, with unpredictable (but generally bad) effects.
Ritual effects can have active point totals of up to 40 points if prepared anywhere, 60 if prepared at a minor nexus, 80 if prepared at a major nexus, and 90 if you have an appropriate extradimensional source of power to draw on.

   Story: Long, long, ago Senca was a sacrifice – an offering to the gods of the sea in apology for the depredations of men, made in hopes that the gods would once again send the creatures of the sea to feed the villages. Senca was accepted – and assigned to intercept the angry spirits of slain creatures, and the dark spirits created by human sins, before they disturbed the places of the gods. Now magic is waking, the spirits grow in strength – and it is time for Senca to once more walk among men, rather than haunting the fringes of the Astral Plane.

   Height: 190cm (6’3″), Weight: 63kg (139 lbs), Sex: Male, Age: 8000, Race: Empowered Human Spirit

   Appearance: Tall, slender, and with constantly-swirling white hair – full of glimpses of terrifying spirits – which trails off ten or fifteen feet even when his powers are not in use. His eyes are black spheres, his skin has the pallor of the drowned, and his unkempt nails are near-talons. He is an obvious supernatural being, and a terrifying one.
