Hughston Manson

Basic Info:

Player: Recursive Recursion

Position: Researcher

Demeanor: Hughston is essentially the opposite of Quincy. Charming, polite, and friendly. He is more than willing to talk to people, though he keeps some secrets to himself. As he no longer possesses the anomaly that afflicted him in the past, he no longer radiates fear and uneasiness, and instead is more than willing to help everyone feel at ease around him.

Nature: Hughston is generally friendly and cooperative. But he will often disappear for periods of time with no explanation, giving no reason for this. He will often massage the tattoo on his arm as a nervous tic. In contrast to his former self, a conspiracy buff, Hugh claims to assume the best in everyone.

Description: After a painful episode of cranial trauma, the man who called himself 'Quincy Sage' regained his memories, and lost the anomalous ability that afflicted him. As such, he can think much more clearly, and devotes more time to maintaining his outward physical appearance. He keeps his hair neatly trimmed, and dresses to kill. Hughston enjoys talking with people about themselves, and will quickly deflect any questions about himself. In fact, he seems a little too eager to learn all he can about everyone.

  • You Won't Like Me when I'm Angry. 4. You wouldn't expect it from him, but he can be very threatening without his anomaly. (Intimidation and Bluff)


List everything your character carries on their person here. Be reasonable.

  • A lot of documents, inherited from Quincy.
  • A journal.

Personal History:

While not all of his memories are returned yet, Hughston has been very willing to share what he remembers. From what he has told, he was a Canadian veteran in the second World War, serving as a combat medic, (though not all of his memories have come back, making him a bit rusty). He claims that after serving in the war, he retired back to his home in Canada, before being approached by a mysterious man who 'cursed him'. Investigation on this is ongoing. There are some who suspect that some, if not all of this, is fabricated, though Hugh will immediately silence anyone who claims this, through conversational means…. or any necessary… Whatever the case, something isn't right about him.


Quincy was famous for hoarding various documents in his room. Since then, some of them have disappeared. Hugh isn't talking.
The QS tattoo on his arm stands for 'quis separabit' which is latin for 'Who Will Separate Us?'.
Hugh will often go off on his own, in an abandoned room, or somewhere isolated. No one knows what he does in there, but some people claim to have heard hushed muttering to someone else.
There seems to be a mysterious shadow stalking Hugh. He appears uneasy when asked about this.
