The First Person

I know you're reading this. I'm reading you as well.

0 · 129 views · located in The Pits

a character in “The Manic Mind of Man”, as played by CaptainGrue


Name/Alias: The First Person. Although you may call me Geralt. So few get to learn my name.
Ethnic Group/Race/Species: Sourcekind. Traveller. What's the difference if you've been here long enough?
Gender: Male. That's the vibe I get.
Age: I think I'm stuck around my 50s.
Date of Birth: I don't remember.
Appearance: I don't know.
Personality: I'd describe myself as a calm, logical person. I try to be polite and civil, even in the face of chaos and great aggression.
Quirks: I think you know them already.
Likes/Hobbies: I like classical music, from what I remember of it. Sometimes I'll seek out the places in the Source where musical inspiration manifests. I like structure, like a song. I spend most of my time lending structure to existence here, I feel like it gives it some sort of purpose and therefore myself purpose. I like purpose.
Dislikes/Nopes: I dislike... I might have to come back to this one. I've been around so long I think I've come to at least accept everything. I suppose in some way I feel alone, but that's more a product of circumstance.
Family/Friends: The Daydream Beast gets a bad rap. They aren't evil. They're just trying to make sense of it all. I can respect that. I find it hard not to respect everyone in the Source. If you spend enough time with any of them, even Squelch, you start to love them.
Place of Residence: The Source, although I spend a lot of time in the Sunsmoke Clouds.
Education: I do seem at least somewhat educated, don't I? I'm not sure. I don't remember.
Profession/Skills: Well, I'm quite good at defusing stressful situations. I wouldn't say it's a profession but I've had a lot of experience.
Source Prowess/Imagination:
The Everything About Me: I am truly self aware. I don't know how, but I know someone is reading all this. I cannot vocalise, but if I direct my thought in a certain way I can take them here. It's a sort of meditation, and by being becomes intertwined with this... New space. The space you're in, I think. Somehow I've been able to manipulate events in the Source by enforcing my will here. I can make things happen and influence behaviour by making certain things clearer. No entities seem to be aware this is my doing, or even that is has happened. Sometimes, very rarely I've been able to manipulate the Source enough to make my existence known, and even communicate. I think that should do for an explanation.

Equipment/Vehicle/Companion: I need no vehicle to traverse the Source. I have no form, though I'm able to will myself anywhere.

Goal(s): I think I want to be corporeal again, if I ever was. I think I was. I would accept learning why no one else is like this, or what it was that made me this way. I want a friend.
Flaws/Fears: Loneliness.
Backstory: I wish I knew. Can I just say, if it doesn't seem too alarming, that I can see your thoughts as well? How did you get here? Are you controlling those people? What is this place? I have so many questions, and no one seems to answer. Are you able to answer? Can you even hear me? Please, if you can communicate, I would like to know more. Is this the reality the Daydream Beast is talking about? We have so many theories. I know there's this greater plane, and I get this sinking feeling I've only been able to scratch it. I'm starting to panic a bit, so I think I might return to where the music is. I don't think I'll come back here.

I'll see you around. Well, you know what I mean.

So begins...
