Straw Stu

From Dark City

“The light obtained by setting straw men on fire is not what we mean by illumination.”
Stuart has always been here. He's an old Freehold hand. At least... most think so. Isn't that right? Maybe we should ask him. Speaking of Stu, where is he?

Stu's Mantle is empty save for an occasional feeling of bleakness. The man himself, to mortal eyes, is a a tall man with moderately long hair, goatee, and a each ear pierced. An Englishman, his accent betraying his origins as somewhere in the Southeast of Old Blighty. To lost eyes the man is a scarecrow in the most traditional sense. Straw protrudes from where he appears to be sown together - the arms, wrists, neck; his hair is a mess of straw, offering a mimic of his Mask's appearance. Stu is a kind enough lad, but something seems off about him. He listens too attentively. He picks up on things too aptly. He seems to be too savvy for someone so distant.

RP Hooks
  • Urban Farmer - Stu works at a small urban NYC organic farm, additionally volunteering time to share his green thumb with local communities around the city
  • Collector - The Winter Court's collectors are there to collect secrets and rumours from others and then have the court look through them and catalogue them. Stu is quite adept at collecting secrets, seemingly always everywhere at once yet never seen.
  • Straw Man - Stu has long been held by some in the Freehold to be a person having no substance or depth. He's always been standoffish, perhaps as a result, or it could be that this has fed into these rumours. Stu's not likely to be a friend, a close friend, of any of his fellow changelings.
