Tropes
Hooks

Casting A Shadow

His secondary mode of conflict when words fail.

I See Dead People

It goes with being a Moros.

Annoying Younger Sibling

He's the youngest of four, and followed his eldest siblings to the ends of the earth.

Blue-Collar Warlock

Magic is good and all, but it won't put food on the table. At least for Saalah it won't.

Deal with the Devil

How else do you get a familiar at a young age?

Entropy and Chaos Magic

His only way to deal with physical threats.

Spontaneous Weapon Creation

Matter and Subtle Arcana can create beautiful, deadly things.

Magocracy

Saalah believes in the system, and swears by it.

Summon Magic

Sordemeozeus may not have been the first, but he won't be the last ephemeral being to assist Saalah in life.

Alchemy is Magic

He's only started dabbling, but a spray to get an ephemeral behemoth off your ass has proven handy.

(Local, all)

Altan was born in Fallcoast, and was considered just another nut of the weird Abernathy clan.

(Moros, mage)

Saalah awakened to the Watchtower of the Lead Coin in the Realm of Stygia, and often bears this with a measure of pride. He can always be found sporting something denoting his closeness to Stygia, and the dream of returning there somehow.

(Silver Ladder, mage)

Saalah is a Théarch, and like most of his kind tends to be a bit politically minded. He has no ambition for leadership, but holds the Elemental Precepts in high regard.

(Kabbalist, all)

Much to his mother's dismay Altan has converted from his familial faith, but seems happy at least.

(Kabbalist, mage)

The cause of Altan's conversion came shortly after moving to California for uni, and involved something from the Abyss. Whatever it was shook him to his core, and it was

(Familiar, supernatural)

A demonic apparition is behind or near Altan at all times in Twilight. It's a relatively harmless spirit, at least until acknowledged.

(California, all)

Altan has spent his post-graduation life in California, and has only recently come back home. Anyone that's been in the golden state from '08 to '16 may recognize him. Doubly so for any members of the Sacramento Consilium or Silver Ladder.

(Wage Slave, all)

Despite holding a master's degree he's working at at a local grocer three days out of the week. Everybody's gotta eat, right?

(Ephemeral, supernatural)

Saalah primarily deals with ghosts, spirits, cryptids, and other strange things, and cages them over banishment or destruction.

(Zainigav, The Fire-Blooded Marquis, supernatural)

Have you been to southern Iraq? You may've heard folk tales of a spirit four times as old as the modern borders.

(Polyglot, all)

He knows a few languages, some dead. It helps when you can communicate with beings that may have been around way back when.
Songs & Logs
Follow The Buzzards by Consequence
I come from a quiet family,
But some of us are as crazy as the Wyatt Family.
Well let me not speak for the entire family.
Because I got brothers in the jungle, cousins on a quest,
And some nephews who be bangin' when they hangin' out west.
Me I ended up like Flipper bangin' Angie on the desk


Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood by Nina Simone
Baby you understand me now,
If sometimes you see that I'm mad.
Dontcha know no one alive can always be an angel?
When everything goes wrong you see some bad.
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good.
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood


All I Know by Karnivool
This is my sense of reality.

This is proof of my coming of age.
This is truth in captivity.
This is loosing a theology, I...
I'm a soul taker.
I'm a cruel, witted mind.
This is my sense of reality.
This is proof of my coming of age.
I'm a soul taker.
I'm a cruel witted mind.
Are you with me?
Are you of like minds?

My Apology by The Urge
Condemning faces looking up at me.
A real hanging by my peers.
Payment for crimes of impurities.
Enjoying the spectacle that's made of me.


Time to Say Goodbye by Casey Lee Williams
Now it's time to say goodbye,
To the things we loved,
And the innocence of youth.
With a doubt in our minds
Why we chose this life,
And at times we can't help wondering...
Were we born to fight and die?
Sacrificed for one huge lie?
Are we heroes keeping peace
Or are we weapons
Pointed at the enemy
So someone else can claim a victory?
Now it's time to say goodbye
To the things we loved,
And the innocence of youth,
How the time seemed to fly,
From our carefree lives,
And the solitude and peace we always knew.
Never Let Me Down by Kanye West, Jay-Z, & J. Ivy
We are all here for a reason on a particular Path.
You don't need a curriculum to know that you are a part of the math.
Cats think I'm delirious but I'm so damn serious.
That's why I expose my soul to the globe; the world.
I'm trying to make it better for these little boys and girls.
