Quote:“I’m keeping quiet down here. Please leave me alone.”
Background : Billy awoke in a murky pond, his mud-streaked face covered in algae, his half-rotten fingers bitten by fish and worms. He remembers nothing before that moment, and is mostly content to keep it that way. He’s been wandering this earth for a good five years now, leaving depression and slothfulness in his wake. Wherever Billy goes, things seem to shut down. Electronics don’t work right. Cars have trouble starting. Entropy takes hold.
Lately, he’s been made his lair in the nest of tunnels beneath the city, confident that nobody would know of his presence. Two problems with that: first, over time, the sewer tunnels have begun to degrade and now foul runoff is bubbling up all over the city; second, he thinks he’s fallen in love. See, this girl who works at the movie theater counter not far from his favorite sewer drain, well, it’s driven him to the surface more than once to gaze at her from afar. But people don’t seem to like that. Soon, they might come after Billy. Soon, hunters may be born out of this hatred.
Appearance: He’s doughy, dirty, bald and he smells. Whenever he uses a Dread Power, his corpselike features become more prominent, and his face seems made of blood, bone and mud.
Storytelling Hints: Billy’s not a bad “man,” but he gets sad and he gets angry and he just wants somebody to love. Maybe he can come to terms with the fact that nobody loves him, or maybe he’ll just start breaking necks.
