Mr. Evan Walker

Player: Fae

Position: Logician

Demeanor: Guarded, eccentric, and somewhat paranoid. Friendly enough once you get to know him, but the eccentricity becomes more obvious.

Nature: Can be introverted towards people he is not familiar with. Becomes very talkative around his close friends. Eccentric, especially when it comes to anomalies. Scatterbrained. Can be somewhat paranoid at times. Is constantly getting into other people's business.

Description: Thin and very tall, about 6'7". Is commonly seen wearing a dress shirt and slacks, occasionally with a tie. May also wear a tanker shirt and jeans on casual days. Slightly unruly dark brown hair, and a mustache. Wears a long brown coat with several pockets while on assignment. Still has a good eye for detail and a good mind for storing information, but his previously eidetic memory has been worn down and altered to a merely really good memory due to various mental anomalies.

Specialties:
  • Navigation: 5. Evan grew up in a house where both location and reality were known to occasionally shift. This has given him an increased awareness of his surroundings and how to move through them. Character has an increased aptitude for moving and guiding other characters through areas (including warped and inconsistent ones) without becoming lost, and is able to recall the layouts of buildings and areas.
  • A Strong but Weary Fortress: 3. Evan grew up on top of a dimensional rift, which on it's own isn't necessarily healthy but also served to attract large amounts of other anomalies, many of them mental. As a result, Evan is very aware of his mental state at any given time, and has learned to set up strong mental defenses and guard against attacks and manipulation. However, while he has learned a great deal from this long barrage of griefs and attacks, it has had the negative effect of wearing him down over time and weakening his mind in some places, which a clever anomaly or manipulator can make use of. When making a roll for mdef, Evan can roll an additional 3df (example: Evan rolls 7df+6 instead of 4df+6 when this specialty is used). When this specialty is used, a result of four '-'s is not considered a critical fail, but it could be considered a low roll in the same way a (0, -, -, -) result is considered a low roll. In the event that all seven dice come up as a '-' or '+', it is treated as much more serious than a normal critical due to the fact that there is only a 1/2187 chance of it happening.
  • Seen It All: 4. If you hang around anomalies for long enough, you start to build up a really good gut instinct for when it comes to telling that they're there or figuring out what they are or what makes them tick. Evan performs an independent roll to try to detect an anomaly, or gain insight into what it is, how it works, or basic operating mechanics at GM discretion.

Personal History:

Evan Walker was born to Fredrick and Eliza Walker on December 22, 1933, in New York City. During his early childhood, Mr. Walker's parents would often take whatever jobs they could, leaving him to his own devices. To keep himself entertained, Mr. Walker would often pass time by making sketches of the various people an buildings in his neighborhood.

Mr. Walker's childhood home was later found to have been constructed on a dimensional weak point,1 causing him to be constantly subject to alterations in local topography and reality (this area is now cataloged as E-███). This resulted in Mr. Walker gaining some basic skill in recognizing patterns in anomalous activities. Studies of the psychological effects on Mr. Walker are ongoing.

Mr. Walker then went on to study mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After graduating, he went on to work as a consultant and analyst for the New York City Police Department. Durring this time, he also gained experience in the basic principles of forensic analysis.

While he never incorporated it into his career path, Mr. Walker gained more interest in various mythologies while in university, specifically with the appearances and behaviors of various mythological species and organisms. He has kept a passive hobby of studying further into mythology.

Mr. Walker was brought to the interest of the Foundation during an investigation into the past habitation of E-███.
