Atticus Shearcroft
+++ Name

Atticus Shearcroft


Necromancer seeking to remake a long lost love


Deepercut: The saw he carries is more than a little magical, though he's mum on the how and why of it. Shearcroft can sacrifice a turn to charge the power of the saw for a +3 bonus to melee for three turns.


Byronic Moronic: Shearcroft is a hopeless romantic, and may act irrationally for the sake of idealized emotion. He's a sucker for a love story or a pretty face in trouble.
Don't Interrupt Me When I'm Brooding!: Shearcroft is prone to taking himself very seriously, and will miss or be offended by jokes at his expense.
Flattery Has Gotten Me Everywhere: Shearcroft truly enjoys giving complements, and can rarely resist, as he puts it, "Speaking truth to beauty". Sometimes this opens doors that would otherwise stick.

Among other things, Shearcroft carries a surgical saw with a carved bone handle. The blade, though chipped, gleams in a strange way as it catches the light, as though it's somehow deeper than simple steel…

Personal History

Atticus Shearcroft seems to be a refugee from another era. With his classical looks and old fashioned clothes, he could easily be a poet from a regency drama, though the vintage medical saw he carries in a slim leather case has more of the doctor than artist about it. He introduces himself in the Library as a necromancer, and rumor has it he's on an extended quest to rebuild a long dead lover.

The rumors go on to say that the… parts… he's collecting are not always female, nor even always human. No one remembers who the lost love was he's seeking to restore. The worst of the rumors say he doesn't know himself. Perhaps, they say, he's simply insane.
