Name

Desmond Sebile

Concept

Wildlife Biologist/ Field Survival Guide.

Aspects

Apex Predator: In order to track the more dangerous creatures safely, he's taken on some of their traits, such as moving unseen and keeping subordinates in line. He does not like challenges against his authority, and maintains uncanny eye contact with people he doesn't respect.

Natural Curiosity: He's far too curious to leave a noise, cave, or tracks un-investigated, such is his want to learn about the environment around him. As such he is much more intuitive when it comes to discovering the unknown.

High Stakes: A bit of a gambler, Desmond works better under the pressure of horrible losses and great gains, leading him to be better and more attracted to anything that might be considered "Risky"

Personal History

Desmond was always the adventurous type. He wasn't one to sit still and watch tv all day, no he'd rather round up a group of friends and shove them outside into the great unknown. He found his passion in hunting and watching the animals in their natural environment. He went to pursue a degree in Wildlife Biology.

As required by his universities requirements, he was shipped out on an internship to the Brazilian rainforest under the supervision of a senior researcher in the field. The spent several months following and tracking down the migrations of monkey tribes in the region. Nearing the end of the expedition, the group found the ruins of an old temple, as of yet undiscovered. The senior researcher was intrigued, declaring that the rest of their time in the forest would be spent the ruins. A stable spot to watch the primates, which oddly enough never actually came within 500 yards of the thing.

The senior researcher became obsessed with the ruins, spending more of his time there than anywhere else, declaring he was just journaling his finds. Eventually, he shut himself away, and only came out between the hours of 3 am and 6 am, leaving notes for his interns on tasks to complete, addressed by name. The interns soon began to become reclusive after the task was complete, and eventually the disappeared into the temple along with the researcher over a course of a month.

Desmond was called last. As he picked up the note, the monkey tribe began to howl from around the forest, and flooded into the temple. Desmond heard the screams of something not quite human and ran. He managed to survive in the jungle for 3 weeks, and when they found him he was sick with malaria, malnourished, and deathly afraid.

His first act was to send out transcripts to the scientific community, describing what he had experienced. The foundation intercepted them, and offered him a job.

Miscellaneous

Desmond previously worked at Command Site 206 in the arctic circle. He was held on retainer for expeditions out into the tundra.

Desmond is a talented at sketching animals and landscapes, preferring to draw rather to describe with words.

He has completed most of a Masters Degree, but was hired before officially gaining the degree.
