"Ah, you realize that magick is something we do to ourselves. But it is more convenient to assume the objective existence of an angel who gives us new knowledge than to allege that our invocation has awakened a supernormal power in ourselves." --Aleister Crowley

* Despite Eien's friendly disposition she doesn't really like to be touched casually, and though large crowds don't make her anxious, they tire her quickly. This is a result of her psychometric sensitivity.

* She's not a hedonist, per se, but she's a very tactile person: she's drawn to, and strongly impacted by, vistas, music, textures, scents, color palettes and other sensory indulgences.

* No one likes to be snuck up on, but Eien has a particular horror of it.

* She doesn't have a horror of much else. Spooky things -- horror-oriented video games, movies, and books -- are her favorite.

* She knows how to skateboard. Sort of. Mostly.

* Rumor has it she performs spooooooooky rites on the night of the full moon.

* When she isn't at school or doing something for D4, Eien works in a quirky combination cafe and bookshop located on the boardwalk of Ebisu Beach. It's called Kaffe Yomiya, and does a brisk business with used books in good condition in addition to new releases.

Current Events

Eien grew up on Port Island. She went to Gekkoukan High, and is now attending Fra Mauro University, spending most of her credit hours in labs of various kinds. Her intended major is forensics, which may account for her recent internship with Department 4.

She's always had a 'thing' for occult subjects, which may seem a little at odds with her friendly, outgoing, social personality...but there's no question she's an expert when it comes to all things strange and spooky.

Persona users in the city would probably already know that she's one of them -- a spotter -- and her Persona is Hekate. Far fewer of them may know that she has another, more unusual talent.

For the last year, she's been a part of several D4 activities in Sumaru, and a few joint ventures between the loose factions that have sprung up across the city, always in a support role. More controversially, a contest she held at the bookstore she works in has resulted in a few supernatural incidents for the winners, related to short stories they received as prizes. That situation is not even close to being resolved yet, but curiously, Eien's unusual talents haven't been of any use in helping the others to make headway toward a solution.

Recently, she participated in a process designed to repair and reconstruct dysfunctional psyches. The subject was Kyo Enda. She hasn't really been the same since.

Persona and Resonance

Hekate is an ancient cthonic goddess with almost as many depictions as she has names, though she frequently appears in historical art pieces as either a triple-faced woman or a single-faced figure carrying twin torches. She has rulership over earth, sea and sky, and is variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy and sorcery as well as a more universal role as Saviour (Soteira), Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul.

When she manifests for Eien, she appears as a semi-transparent, austere, topless woman, with skirts of star-fields that terminate in rolling, frothing ocean waves. She has a luminous crescent moon on her forehead and long, dark hair interwoven with raven feathers, a laurel of twined oak and yew dappled with bright red yew cones wreathing her crown. In her hands she carries long, slender silver torches, but they burn with the cold light of stars rather than the warmth of fire.

Because Hekate's significance and role varies so widely between time periods and cultures, Eien's resonance can also be perceived in many ways by others, depending on things like their personal disposition and her mood.

Possible Scents: Garlic, yew or oak, running water, medicinal herbs, ozone, seawater, incense, smoke from a fire, or the smell of dogs.

Possible Sounds: Baying hounds, chanting women, rhythmic movements of the ocean, rhythmic movements of mortar and pestle, the pop and hiss of fire, the chirp of crickets.

Possible Feelings: Awareness of mortality, anticipation (like that of approaching a door to some unfamiliar place), the feeling of being watched by someone unseen, ritual trance, the gravity of celestial mysteries, the solemnity of ritual, the comfortable companionship of a loyal friend, the danger of the unseen.

Unusual Skills

Eien is a spotter with two somewhat unusual talents.
