Hadrian Laflamme

It was a rather brief nautical journey, at least in comparison to the trek across land that we had to endure in order to reach Newfoundland. I must say that the bright lights, and tall, aged buildings of London were unlike anything that I have been previously exposed to. It was all quite fascinating to say the least. Although, the hotel that my brother had booked was certainly less than captivating. As we unpack our things, a muted rap on the door forces it’s small hands around our attention, seizing our minds as we walk towards the door.

Upon the other side was a physically unimposing, old woman. Politely, she initiates conversation, and in the process acknowledges me. She knows? How? Is this woman a blessing or a curse? Being I am already of the cursed persuasion, why not gamble our situation in the hopes of it being a blessing? My brother, being his bitter self quickly retorts in a somewhat hostile way. Like a fish out of water, he has always flipped, and flopped his way through social situations with no eloquence or class. Sorry I have not been more talkative brother, I have had the flue.

Seamlessly, I emerge from Antoine, and take a step so that I now stand inbetween him, and the small woman. I carefully wife any dust from the sleeves of my suit, despite the fact that it is pristine. Reaching up towards my neck, I adjust my already well situated ascot. Now, having made myself more presentable, I avert my gaze towards the woman. “My apologies, ever since he was born, he could always be a bit…crass. Now the elephant in the room is obviously the question of how you know him, and more importantly, how do you know me. These are questions that we would like to be answered, but they can be answered with time. What comes first, is the business proposition you have for the two of us. Please come in, and have a seat.”

Lightly pushing, I urge my brother to move out of the way, so that we may allow the woman into our room. Hurry up, and find a seat somewhere proper. I swear, if you keep your inhospitably up, I will start thinking in French again, and I don’t think either of us care to much for when that happens.

I feel the biggest reason for a lack of discussion, is outside of Norway and the UK butting heads, there has been little division on the political topics at hand.

Name: Hadrian Laflamme
Gender: Male
Age: 25

Appearance: About six feet in height, he is a bit on the slim side, and used to weigh only 150 pounds, with a notable lack of great muscle, or fat. Bright green eyes, and a tan complexion with a lack of imperfections create a powerful, yet slightly unnerving face. Platinum blonde hair loosely slicked back gives off the appearance of a formal event that has lasted a few hours too long. He is wearing a slim, double breasted suit, in a formal shade of midnight blue. Underneath the pants, and the jacket are a clean white dress shirt, whilst his neck adorns a silky, silver ascot. His shoes, with slight heels, but still formal are a dark shade of black.

Location: Ontario, Canada → London, England

Biography: Hadrian Laflamme was born the younger of two siblings, both of which had rather mundane, yet useful powers. His brother and him used these powers within the Canadian wilderness to hunt, and trap animals for there pelts. Due to their advantage in the market, they quickly rose to be quite affluent, resulting in an abundance of physical needs being satisfied, whether they were the need for a warm coat, or the need for a warm body on a lonely night.

Laflamme, being the more charismatic of the two brothers, and arguably more attractive resulted in a bitterness to begin to grow within his older brother like a cancer, despite how much of an inspiration to Hadrian he served. His older brother feeling slighted resulted in a slow drifting apart between the two of them. This came to a head when on one fateful hunting trip in 1738 the winter of 1871, his older brother misused his powers in what could only have been a way to try and show off, and prove his superiority. He failed to properly control a pack of mountain lions, which managed to breach the cabin, and mortally wound Hadrian before his brother could regain control, and disperse the savage beasts with the help of a Native American shaman who served as their guide from time to time. In his dying moments, seeing his blood, and organs before him, numbed by only the shock, a noble sacrifice was made.

The Shaman, used Hadrian’s blood to quickly create some sort of rune on the ground of the cabin. While he stood in the center of the large rune, he quickly, although to the skepticism and fear of his brother, extracted some of Antoine’s blood, letting it rest in his mouth. Upon swallowing the blood, standing in the center of the blood rune, the shaman’s body began to rapidly dissipate, along with Hadrian’s body. Antoine stood onward, confused, and devastated. All that was left was a Native American talisman where the blood rune once was. Upon adorning it, Antoine passed out in pain. Weeks of cold sweats, and pain ensued, before it slowly drifted away, or he grew to numb to it. In place of the pain, was his brother Hadrian. A spirit residing within him, who could manifest himself in the physical world for brief moments of time, although with repeated exposure, the amount of time Hadrian could remain manifested eventually could exceed a couple hours, however it proved incredibly taxing on Antoine.

Due to the stress that this put on the lives of both of them, they are seeking help to allow the permanent manifestation of Hadrian by any means needed. Even if it means agreeing to work for a British expedition in an attempt to use a German super-weapon.

Magical Skills:

Sound-Light Conversion: The power Hadrian possessed prior to his death, was the ability to convert sound into light, or light into sound. This proved useful in night time hunting, as any movement resulting in noise, breathing, or anything of the such would emit visible light that could serve useful in the hunt, or navigation.

Decay: Objects that Hadrian Laflamme has prolonged contact, whether direct or indirect with begin to rapidly decay. An example would be the ability to rot a wooden beam within a minute or so by merely touching it. This becomes problematic when it comes to living with other people, as over time the power of decay will cause for their organs and skin to rot, until their inevitable death. Hadrian Laflamme did not have this power until after the incident with the mountain lions, a couple years ago.

Poltergeist: Without manifesting, Hadrian can have control over items within the proximity of his host. This can be used to inform other people of something, assist the host, harm the host, or protect the host from incoming threats.

Vengeful Spirit: Although it is incredibly taxing on the host, Hadrian can unravel his beautiful appearance in favor of a monstrous, wraith like appearance, capable of rapid movements, and flight, as well as being able to better utilize the powers of decay. While in the wraith form, Hadrian could exhale beams of negative energy that could cause an incredibly rapid decay of whatever it hits. This is just as powerful as it is taxing on the host. This is less of a voluntary state, and more so the result of extended manifestation.

Other Skills: Navigational expertise across both land and sea has always came natural to Hadrian Laflamme. This coupled with his superior people skills, and financial savvy made the younger Laflamme quite the capable business partner to his older brother.

Not magic, but more so a skill, being the ability to manifest himself into a physical, tangible form.

Also, as a spirit, he is capable of heightened senses, and the ability to move about unseen.

I am exceptionally less alive than most.

It also makes me smile whenever you play GTA IV. Almost as funny as when you went to the Dollar Tree. The chromebook and Kindle Fire get honorable mention.

Now if we split FG into another section for reaper and I to make stupid inside jokes, ignoring everyone else, and chucklefucking our way through other people’s narrative, that could be nice.

Will stability begin to have a bigger role? Seems odd that billions can be spent on a pagan religion and entire budgets spent on military would drop stability.

Babatunde Washington, Eritrea

I must apologize for the bluntness, but President Junson of Estonia, I must decline your trade proposal. I already have sufficient trading powers in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, who all bring more to the table economically than you can. I would put forth money to assist the investigation of the Israeli assassination, however we do not have the funds to spare.

We may need to review trade partners, as I notice a large amounts of discrepancy between different nations. An example would be Sweden does not have Russia, yet Russia has Sweden, Norway has Eritrea yet Eritrea does not have Norway despite replacing UAE with them. Unless actions were never properly confirmed.

Honestly, the absence of China, France, and Germany is a bit jarring. I couldn’t imagine adding the US to that list. Arguably Japan as well.
