Basic Info

Pyrite is an ex-company man turned runner face and mage. He follows the psion tradition, which means he considers himself to have powers, but doesn't put them in the same category as magic. He is also secretly a skilles user of mental manipulation spells and often uses possession spirits against unwilling targets

Backstory

Brian Carpenter was born into SK-Seattle and raised in the corporate culture. His aptitude for social interaction and engineering earned him a position on a team of negotiators where he met his mentor, a women named Èmille who he eventually fell for.

She taught him her tradition for his magic, but when he discovered her in bed with one of his peers, he had a mental break, using a spell to make her kill them both.

After that he burned all traces of himself and vanished into the shadows, seeking to gain power outside the corp.

Significant Qualities

Alpha Junkie - he expects to be in charge. Always.

Charlatan - An advanced knowledge of psychology has given him a number of techniques to conceal his powers. Misdirection and distraction key among them.

Infirm - After an unfortunate encounter with a fragmentation grenade in the carribean, Pyrite walks with a cane and is generally unable to push his body very far.

Sadistic - these psychological markers are the telltale sign of a master manipulator and a pathological need for control. At SK, that earmarks you as an excellent asset for any team.

Superhuman Psychosis - To him, the idea he's on the same level as any other metahuman is laughable. Their free will is his to take at a whim.

Motivations

Pyrite wants to gain power and influence through the shadows.

Appearance and Style

A human man generally wearing a fine suit and a silver dragon-head cane.
