Carson is a ruthless SOB who’s willing to kill
anyone who gets in his way. His immediate circle of
followers is loyal to the death. In terms of thaumaturgy,
he’s a powerhouse at psychomancy—he can
easily cast Superb spells of that type with no prep,
and he can safely channel seven shifts of power
per ca sting roll. In combat, he’s far more likely to
rely on a minor talent minion or a gun (Fair skill,
Weapon:2) rather than his own evocations , which
are rudimentary spirit channelings.

Russell Carson is a renegade sorcerer who has amassed a small cult following among
Nwe York City’s community of minor talents and dabbling practitioners. He’s a madman, but he’s
very savvy and makes the most of the opportunities presented to him—he’s laid low for years,
but now that the Vampire War is distracting the majority of the White Council’s Wardens, he
feels freer to operate openly.

His goal is to establish himself and his followers as a Freehold under the Unseelie
Accords, much like Gilgamesh did. He doesn’t have a permanent home; he lives with different
members of his cult, moving around every few days to keep the Wardens off his tracks—just in
case they do decide to hunt him down. His talent lies in thaumaturgy rather than
evocation; he trusts in his .38 special
