Shroud of Mist: Sidereal PI

"Mystery magnifies danger, as a fog the sun."
-- Charles Caleb Colton (English cleric & writer, 1780-1832)

In the halls and offices of the Heavenly City, intrigue abounds. And one group is determined to find out what's going on. These are the cases of S/PI/007.

We have art in order not to die of the truth, Let the Pyramid Spin

This is my sidereal for the Exalted S:PI game. She is grumpy and pragmatic (probably her most redeeming feature). It is lucky she has charms to make friends for her.

She believes that heaven - the roles and jurisdictions of the divine - do not merely reflect the state of Creation. Instead the two realms have a symbiotic relationship. If either is in chaos then the other cannot be ordered. Both are chaotic at present, indeed Creation is threatened on all sides by powerful enemies, and yet perhaps the most effective way to stop all these foes is not by facing them down directly but by setting Creation's divine mirror in order. Then, somehow, Fate will have the strength to tie up the earth-bound threats in their own chaos. Those who dwell outside Fate will be snipped from the loom and cast away. If, first, heaven is in order.

She is not bronze or gold faction - she has never been to the Realm and generally avoids the 'anathema' - but she does not, cannot state that the views of the factions are wrong. She is not willing to take a side on the issue of the solars and risk a divided heaven, however, so she refuses to engage with the topic at all and regards both sides with equal disdain. She is also perfectly happy to play to the factional divide - while she is not in a position to end it - for the good of those lands inside Fate.

Draft writing:

The dew is shed in beauty, and roses bloom

This is my lunar character from Golden Opportunity. Mani (the local name for the moon deity) was born in a nomadic barbarian tribe in the South. She was apprenticed to the shaman and exalted knowing sorcery. She studies terrestrial spells using the Salinan working and, so far, has never used a sorcery book to teach herself. She has great faith in the strength of her pack as a group, but values her friend Wandered Lamb - an ex-Immaculate Air Aspect born in the Varangian city states - for someone to theorize with. She only wishes Herla could stand him.

Planes, Chains & Thaumaturgy

Welcome cutters, bashers, noble knights of the cross-trade, one and all! Welcome to the glorious multiverse that awaits you with nasty, sharp, pointy teeth!

Unless you'd prefer to kip amongst the grass and flowers of Green Fields... but where's the fun in that, eh? *wink*


Hero-in-a-Half-Shell is a young man taken from privilege and plenty to the edges of the world where he must run from his former life to stay alive. Armed only with a powerful ancient scroll, three talented brothers, two magic swords, a can-do attitude and the shapeshifting power of a mercurial god grafted to his soul, who knows what lies in store for this pizza-loving reptile-boy.

Silent Lament of the Fallen Angel

Angel is a a classic loner. He has wandered creation on his own for a great deal of his life, and excels in self-sufficiency. He is an accomplished martial artist, athletic with sense and reflexes trained to the utmost. He is most at home in the wilderness, and when forced to seek human company tends to remain taciturn and brood silently in a corner.

Perfected Lotus, Sword of Heaven

Perfected Lotus is an archetypal wandering martial artist. He is a self-sufficient man, proficient in all forms of combat. He is both athletic and hardy, able to dodge blows, or simply absorb them with no apparent effect. Perfected Lotus is certainly striking in social situations, but he comes across to most as arrogant, unlikeable and stubborn. That said, he has been living on the Blessed Isle for his entire life, and has not failed to pick up the elegant and intricate systems of wordless expression so popular among the Dynasts. Although he is reasonably virtuous, few would describe him as a hero.

Nascent Blossom, Harbinger of Serenity

Nascent Blossom is the Heavenly agent in the Exalted chronicle Scrolls of the Monk, wandering Creation in search of learning, revenge and the means to return to Yu-Shan safely...
