Aspirations:Long-term: Find a person, angel, or thing, where decision making happens for the God Machine. Who decided Cassiel needed to die? Or what? How?
Short-term: Keep Cassiel alive.
Short-term: Are the Seers or the Pentacle working to help the God Machine?
• Who did you share part of yourself with when you first Fell?
Cassiel. She was the cause of, and she could see through the Cover anyways.
• Who doesn’t know, but suspects you’re not human?
Some of my contacts know something is wrong. Some think I just went a little too deep in Afghanistan, and came out weird. Other’s know it goes deeper than that, somehow. Then there’s the people I need to talk to about the strange I find. Shame to have to be so direct.
• Who could give you up to the angels right now, if they really wanted to?
Cassiel, of course. This new Demon I’m supposed to meet could be an obvious problem.
• Who would you trust the truest part of yourself with if you absolutely had to?
• Who thinks they have something on you, when all they really have is smoke and mirrors?
That fucking mage. He thought he found something out. Was so damn sure. And yeah, the trap I set for him didn’t exactly pan out, but whatever he did to escape it? It’s what got him caught, I’m sure of it. So he might know something, and his friends might, but they’ve got nothing.
