Description

Tycho has wavy black hair, dark brown eyes, and is always dressed in clothes that could at best be described as Victorian Gothic dragged through a magpie's lair.

As an Extempore, his humor is Anaesthetic - which the body had in its system at the time of death.

Public Effects: Striking Looks 2

Disfigurement: Under the Azoth's illusion of how the body looked in life, Tycho's veins are black, giving his skin a deathlike hue.

History

To the best of Tycho’s knowledge, he came into being the moment his host body died: when Tyler Bonneau, only 22 years old, suddenly developed severe organ failure, got rushed to the ER, and was pronounced dead by midnight. Mr. and Mrs. Bonneau were there to witness their son’s final moments, telling him they loved him and begging for him to open his eyes even as the heart monitor flatlined. Then the eyes opened, and the body moved, but with no return of a heartbeat.

Rejected by Tyler’s family, the animated corpse wandered aimlessly, waiting for rot to set in.

With the time given to him, Tycho found a purpose in his wandering, and started visiting libraries in hopes of finding occult texts that might explain something of his strange creation. Unfortunately, Tycho could never stay in any one place long enough to learn much from the occult tomes he’d found. Sooner or later, someone would get the wrong idea and run him out of town.

As a performer, Tycho can be seen doing various acts of escape artistry or acrobatics on the tightrope, and often both at once. With no innate sense of fear, Tycho is fascinated by the reactions he can elicit from the audience when he abruptly tumbles from the wire, or when locked in an underwater tank.

RP Hooks

Voracious Reader: Whenever the Carnivale stops in a fresh location, Tycho can often be found trying to visit the local library or second-hand bookstore, pouring over occult texts as long as the Disquiet will allow. He's getting better at knowing when to cut and run, but occasionally he still finds himself chased back by an upset local or two.

The Man Who Didn't Know Fear: Tycho's performances can be breathtaking, but he only manages those death-defying stunts because fear is a foreign concept to him. He wants to understand what elicits these feelings in others.

Strange Gifts: One of the habits Tycho's picked up from his interactions with humans is the idea of gift-giving. To show his appreciation for a kind word or a good deed, Tycho will sometimes offer one of his weird "gifts" - maybe a comb he found, or a cold can of soda, or a half-used puzzle book.
