Brandon and possible Affiliations

Recommended Posts

So you may have noticed Brandon is  currently unaffiliated. That does not mean he will stay that way. I have an idea where Brandon gets injured, perhaps shot because he either is targeted because of being an Altered human, (actually he's an outworlder but at this point he thinks he is human) or tries to stop something using his powers and gets hurt do to poor timing on his part.  This will alert several types of people and perhaps open a chance for him to meet people from various factions.  Here are some examples as groups that might be interested.

 

Government and Law Enforcement:

Brandon has a Doctoral degree as a Forensic Investigation Specialist from Yale and trying to land his first job.

 

ARMA:

He does have a magic item and has magic abilities, that combined with his education might be enough to get them interested.

 

PHAROS:

Well he does have abilities, the magic item and his training might come in handy.

 

ORDER OF FIRST LIGHT:

Again magic item they might want to collect, perhaps not so interested in him other then that unless they think he might be useable for something.

 

BAKKHOS:

His ability to slip through walls invisibly might be useful but don't count on him doing this for them willingly.

 

 

That said, Government/Law and ARMA have the best chance but that does not mean others cannot try to convince him. This could be in several thread involving each faction individually or members of different ones together. Let me know what you think!

So here are some additional thoughts. 

 

With the violence against outworlders perhaps Brandon hears cries for help and goes to see what he can do.

(I'm thinking of an arson fire in say a warehouse filled with outworders.) Brandon tries to help say by making a way for them to escape and in doing so is pretty severely injured himself. GSW, burns that sort or thing. He would then come in contact with law enforcement, perhaps healed by someone with that ability or taken to a hospital to be examined or admitted.  This could start a chain of JPs really involving different characters interacting with him. 

 

Just throwing out some ideas to see if there is any interest.

So I have a post being worked on now that is associated with this. "Would be Reluctant Hero" . I left some things vague hoping that an investigator would fill in the missing details and might want to find Brandon in the New York Hospital or something.  At any rate was starting to see if there was any interests. So far I would have to say no.

Aw... don't get discouraged! 

Remember that this sites pace is a little slower because most players are late 20s and thirtys so family and careers :) takes a little time for people to free up from existing threads to add new ones.

 

I have a doc that works the hospital.  He is a bit of a loner but would definitely be someone to interact with there.

Thanks for the reminder. I'll have to remember things are a bit slower paced here. Don't have that luxury on other boards so it might take a bit to let that mindset sink in. 

 

Altheia Martin will do some healing . The two could work together.

Boone is a crack Pharos relic hunter, also deals black market under the table and knows Altheia.  I got some ideas but need to close up a few threads first- it's possible that Altheia and Boone' s threads could dovetail in now that he's been introduced to Altheia.

Sounds like a great idea guys. I doub't in Brandon's contidition he is going to be able to keep his brooch secret real well, that is if he has to take off his clothes, pretty typical for hospitalization. lol he'd get the always flattering gown and if luck two to keep from showing his vertical smile to the whole world. 

 

In the ongoing post I have right now, "Words and Wax," With Rorye he's hunting for clues and at the moment does not believe it is anything but costume jewelry but he's starting to think it was at least intended to have power.

 

Nice that he has had it for 10 years and has not figured it out yet. lol

Altheia also knows that Boone collects suspicious weird things from and sometimes for bad guys.  He never told her that he works for Pharos though I don't think.  But, Boone may just stop by because he's Boone.

I had a thought. I noticed that his Dimensional Shift ability could closely resemble Gaspari's molecular shift ability. If word got out that someone else in town was doing something similar to what Gaspari can do...it wouldn't be far-fetched for Brandon to receive an invitation to the Club one night.

Actually Gaspari's is much more powerful with the molecular manipulation (its an OP ability :P )

Brandon is more like Matteo.

lol no worries. I understand Branden isn't the most powerful individual, wasn't trying to make him so, but I do think if they heard Branden did something with his power there might be some confusion between the two, as in who did it. Perhaps the police might want to question Branden about illegal activities done by others with abilities that might on the surface seem similar.  Bakkhos might at first get it confused too and give someone else the credit or blame for it.

 

Either way I was trying to let the three JP's he is in play out a bit more before trying to get Branden in any further trouble. I really don't know where any of them are going right now.
