Description

It's difficult to tell exactly what 'Spector looks like because he spends most of his time looking like everything else: university students, vagabonds, corporate sharks, yuppies, hippies, and professional football players, to name a few. Age, gender, build - none of it seems to pose a challenge to the localized man of mystery. Underneath the layers of wigs, makeup, and costuming, he may be a handsome man in his late 50s with greying hair and pearly teeth; but then again, he might not.

History

  • Redacted: Born at home to a pair of Nuwisha under the name of Redacted. His name is immediately concealed under the pseudonym of Redacted.
  • 1965: Pulls off his first theft: a new set of shoes. Is promptly caught and forced to return them. Makes a great show of repenting. Doesn’t mean a word of it.
  • 1966-1979: Shuffled between various relatives and friends of the family after his parents return to the Umbra, most notably the Corbeanu Glass Walkers.

  • 1980-1999: Forms a loose association with the Enumclaw Caern, appearing and disappearing at his leisure. Anti-Wyrm shenanigans ensue. Maintains his distance out of a dislike for the Garou.
  • 1999: His parents fail to return from the Umbra with the other Nuwisha. He is informed by Dawn “Journey’s End” Riversong that they died in a storm.
  • 1999-2006: Leaves Seattle to travel following the fall of the Enumclaw Caern. Spends time primarily with the Nuwisha, notably as an assistant to Journey’s End.
  • 2006: Returns to Seattle and drops straight into trouble spying on a pack of Gangrel. Loses part of his left thigh while fleeing.
  • 2006-2016: In and out of Seattle depending on how hot it’s gotten for him. Reconnects with Journey’s End and becomes a major organizer for the yearly Nuwisha festivals.
    • 2009-2010: Participates in the Rite of the Still Skies alongside Journey’s End.
    • 2012: Forms a longstanding alliance with a salmon spirit after winning a bet that he’d trick a Pentex shell company into cleaning up a migration site.
  • 2016: Reconnects with the kinfolk daughter of Taller Than Tales and hears about the new Caern.
  • 2017: Begins monitoring the Sept of the Reach. Decides after six months it might be worth joining.
  • 2018: Reconsiders the wisdom of his location. Spends some time traveling and organizing the downfall of Bhictoria MacDougal before settling in for an extended vacation at the Sept of Storm's Shelter.

Records & Reviews


Quotes

Internal Reviews

Personal recordings.

  • "Coyotes have never needed the Garou to give us names for what we do anyway. Luna hid her Auspices from us, making us the world's fools. You keep waiting for permission in your own life, you'll wait forever."
  • "You were born with the gift of words in your blood, to condemn injustice and seek a better world. So far I’ve seen you use those words primarily to excoriate the low who strike back against the high. Will you use them to call the high who murdered my loved ones in duels, hunts, and Bites to justice as well?"

External Reviews

Quotes from others.

  • "Spector is a mouthy twat. One day I'm going to have to jump in to keep an enraged garou from ripping off his jaw." - Sasha Marikova
  • "Spector is over the top, ridiculous, and outspoken. He might be Nuwisha Kin, but he says the things I often bite back, and oh how I love it." - Madison Walsh
  • "So far, so useful. Let's keep it like that." - Collyn Laskaris
  • "I generally dislike clever. Let me explain, clever people tend to be unnecessarily disruptive and argumentative because they define themselves not by the solutions they create but by the discordance they generate. They take pride in shaking up the status quo or upending what they see as non-effective methods but they rarely stick around to actually put shoulder to grindstone to build something to replace it. Clever people don't enjoy making things better... they tend to just enjoy being clever. I don't hate clever, but I do dislike it. How do I feel about Spector? Ah... no comment." - Oliver "Truth & Consequences" Bishop
  • "Frankly another piece of evidence that the anti-Fera bias Garou have is the real Wyrm taint." - Verity Apple Willow
  • "He's up in places getting shit done. Fucking listen to him!" - Priscilla Lamnidae
  • "He has such audacity, he would have made a good Shadow Lord." - Martial Law

  • "'Spector? I probably wouldn't be nearly as well-adjusted as I am if it weren't for his keen senses, warm hospitality, and the fact that he never stops sticking his nose in everyone's business. I owe him a great deal, to the moon and back. Also, great spiritual quest partner." - Amber Lauren
  • "That man has the filthiest mind of any creature I have ever met! Which, surprisingly, makes for great company." - Thyra Laskaris
  • "Look Guys, This Guy is either a Nuwisha. Who is deceiving us all ......Or A Old Martial Arts Master Like Master Roishi from Dragon-Ball Z." - Stags-Fury
  • "A perfect gentleman. Stop laughing, it's true." - Cassidy Black
  • "'Spector is a master of disguise, and an actor without peer. I wonder if he has turned those talents to infiltration of our enemies." - Erecul Tophroi
  • "Not even sure who he is, let alone why he thinks I'm a fascist." - Glow Bug
  • "A deceiver, as his patron intended. I do not doubt his aims; he is as sincere in his love of Gaia as I am. It is everything else about him that I question. We disagree on much, but he is not without merit, or wisdom." - Duskcaller
    • A horrified, uncertain stare.
  • "Never has a man more completely broken my heart, but the experience was so incredibly eye-opening that I honestly wouldn't have it any other way." - Torchbearer
  • "A gentleman sure, I'll stand by that, but shit, he could sell ice to penguins." - Cassidy Black
  • "Being a Trickster is usually a young man's game because eventually you annoy the wrong Ice Giant and end up as paste on a wall. The fact that 'Spector has managed to not meet such a fate means he's very good at what he does. And I can't help but respect that a lot." - Inge Hansen
  • "For all his biting remarks, and his direct manner - In the end, I truly think 'Spector wants the best for everyone, and is willing to go to great lengths at great personal risk to see it done." - Madison Walsh
  • “It is easy to want to feel pity for someone on the outside until you realize that they are there on purpose and that they see the bigger game, better than you do. It’s a chosen life.” - Smooth Operator

A smoke was lying on his lips
And in his hand a rusty flask
Even in death he'd forced a smile
I oughta give him his dues for going out like that
