IC
Character Name: Macintosh [also Mac or online handle M4c1nt0sh]
Lineage: Tammuz
Current Refinement: Mercurius [Quicksilver]
Past Refinements: Stannum [Tin]

Athanor: Pending
Repute: 1

Description: Macintosh appears as a young man. He is rather unremarkable in appearance, to which he uses to his advantage. He dresses simply in dark or earthen colors, but is always with at least a vest that has many pockets. He often also carries a slim backpack and wears a jacket [presumably also with lots of pockets]. His torso has a decent amount of tissue damage seemingly caused by industrial equipment. He has tattoos on his arms, provided by his Creator, that symbolize slavery.

Disfigurement: When showing his true form, Macintosh is a young man of extremely darkened complexion, covered in gravel and soot. The Hebrew word for Truth shines on his forehead, contrasting its electrical silver against the soot.

Background: Macintosh appeared on the Created scene about the same time as Apple released the first brands of household computers in the 1980s. At first highly inquisitive about the world and desiring to understand how it worked, his fascination with communications technology lead to severe frustration. Intuitively understanding the potential of technology on the world and desiring to know how it coupled with human existence, his tendency towards Mercurious drove him mad. In a fit of Torment, he raged across the small industrial town he was born in and disappeared into the wastes, presumably to the wide expanse of the Dakotas. Over twenty years later he has returned at the advent of more advanced technology and spent time quickly learning how to use it. Rumors persist that though he still is ravaged by Torment and his current allegiance to alchemical Tin, he is calming. He uses his extreme technological prowess to make money. Money he stored before his going to the Wastes has also accumulated a good amount of interest. Mac is typically mobile, having his own large transport vehicle crammed with a cobbled together super-computer.

Personality: Macintosh is a sour individual who is slowly regaining his wonder of humanity and its technological achievements. His calming is affecting his mood, and as he spends time with people online or with his Promethean allies he is growing into a fairly friendly, almost sweet individual. He is still rather timid from the violence his Torment caused before his going to the Wastes and this translated into a good dose of cowardly behavior. He has a fondness for oreos, tea, and musicals. His greatest understanding of humanity is through the internet, movies, and television.

History: It appears that Mac was a young adult in an industrial town somewhere in Middle America. The most likely cause of Mac's initial death considering his scars along his torso and legs was an industrial accidents of some kind. His Disfigurement suggests that the rebuilt body was placed in industrial coal and gravel to be reborn as a Golem.

OOC
Player: James
Inspirations: Any hacker or "Deus ex machina" type character from literature or anime, including Lain, Michael from Witch Hunter Robin, and "Napster" from The Italian Job. Apparently Soong-type Androids (more emotional than Data, but less evil than Lore). Also, this was my original Camarilla LARP Promethean PC, though that one was born in the Industrial Revolution (thus the soot) and watched the evolution of technology over almost two centuries.

Rumors:
  • Mac spent time not in the Wastes, but exploring the Refinment of Flux. All of his time was spent perfecting forbidden Transmutations.
  • Mac is part of a small cabal of Prometheans working only online to create a new Refinment to represent the Information Age. His failure to do this fuels his Torment.
  • Mac isn't a Golem, but one of the Unfleshed, born of computers. He simply took on an aspect to hide as a Golem.
  • Mac's talent with the Electrification Transmutation is unparalleled. He once stopped a hulking Pandoran in its tracks with one blast.
  • Mac is on a quest to find a member of a new Lineage he believes is coming that represents man's fascination with computers like the Zeka represented the Nuclear age and the Wretched represented the Industrial.
  • Mac's supercomputer isn't just powered by Azoth, it is the new Lineage, a Promethean A.I.
  • Mac spends time online talking with other supernaturals, including a vampire whose online handle is "Mayday."
  • Mac is a founding member of the hunter compact known as "Network Zero," though their quest on the Vigil was a sheer accident.
  • Mac is a member of the 'hacktivist' group known as Anonymous

PostSubject: Mac's Lair   Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:57 am

Mac's lair is a mobile unit.  He drives around in a surveillance van which houses a cobbled together, azothic powered, super computer.  Rumors are that this van is only a piece of a larger vehicle or vehicles, including a boat, plane, and/or 18-wheeler.  

While Mac's super-computer takes up most of his van (see post above) with servers/hard drives in his larger lair slaved together and connected to the computer via secured satellite connections, his main personal computer is a custom-built system that he is never without, also connected to the main system.

Since escaping Blackwell Asylum, Macintosh has been calmed considerably from his almost constant state of Torment since his creation over two decades ago. It appears that with some help he has regained his long lost dedication to the study of Pyros and the Mercurial philosophy of the Ophidiams.
