Martin von Brandt

Player: Aphex_

Position: Thaumaturgy Expert / Blossoming Adept

Demeanor: von Brandt typically comes off as anxious, and will keep to himself whenever he finds it appropriate. Despite his education and overall knowledge, Martin will also continually downplay his achievements and second-guess his knowledge on most topics.

Nature: If you can get him to open up on his more favored topics, Martin becomes a wealth of knowledge and experience on all things magic and- on occasion- mechanical. He still suffers from the anxiety and poor self-esteem as seen in his demeanor despite this.

Description: Martin is a fairly average looking man with blue eyes and black hair. He sports shoulder-length hair that is typically tied back at the base of the skull. When channeling Thaumaturgic energies, his eyes invert to black sclera with orange irises- this is typically not seen by anyone as he will wear either sunglasses or a blindfold when channeling.

Martin can generally be found wearing his Brookridge Academy hoodie, a pair of black-denim jeans, and Converse. He will carry a rather ornate cane around, in the event it is needed due to his recent physical deterioration.

  • Knowledge is Power: 2. Being a scholar, Martin is quite the index on all things Thaumaturgical. (+2 to History when dealing with Thaumaturgy)
  • Critical Strike: 2. If given enough time, stealth, and luck, von Brandt can get a much better shot on a given target. (+1 Damage to Light weapons after a successful Stealth roll)
  • The Path of Blood: 4. Anomalous. Agent Von Brandt has begun to unlock his true potential; while his development is slower than that of his peers in the Academy, he is still learning and growing. This is, unfortunately, causing problems with his overall health. The more he learns, the worse he feels. (All spells in this Specialty will be bought with Equipment Points. Each spell will have a listed effect and flaw in the Function box. The overall flaw for this spec is a decrease in Martin's overall mobility and health in-character.)

Personal History:

Agent von Brandt was born to ████████ and ███████ von Brandt of █████████, Belgium in the winter of 1955. Due to his parents' scholar-scribe roles within a sect the Serpent's Hand, Martin also had an affinity for Thaumaturgy in his young age- but his control of the magics never seemed to get any better as time moved forward.

After the collapse of the Serpent's Hand sect into the Brookridge Academy in 196█, von Brandt began his new role as a scout for the school, seeking out younger prospective students for the School- and by extension the Foundation- to cultivate into whatever purpose they desired.

From the day of his 21st birthday, Agent von Brandt has been employed by the Foundation as a sort of 'bloodhound' for sources of Thaumaturgical energies and persons. He has recently been transferred to OMEGA-5 as his abilities may serve useful in the field.


von Brandt is a fan of watches, and keeps a small collection- four in total from various manufacturers.

Being Belgian and an academic, Martin is fluent in German, Dutch, French, and English.
