Name

Author

Concept

Thinks he's the author of the book that is the world. Tries to adjust the plot as he sees fit.

Power

Characterization: Whenever another character tags one of their Aspects for a bonus, Author can spend an action point of his own to give that character an additional +2 to the roll. Further, whenever another character accepts a compelled aspect, Author can transfer one of his action points to that character.

This power is passive reality-warping on the part of Author.

Aspects

The search goes on: Author knows that any good story has a protagonist. He has a tendency to latch onto someone, try to get them to take the lead role, and then move on to someone else if he's not satisfied.
Darker and edgier: Author makes a deliberate attempt to avoid giggles, sunshine, and other forms of diabeetus, dispelling them himself if need be. He'll ruin good days and pleasant moods for everyone involved.
A writer am I: Author thinks that he's well, the author. His purpose is not to survive, get rid of the bad guys, or help out the good guys. His goal is to create a good story. He'll push to make things happen that he thinks will be interesting.

Personal History

Nothin', really. The body was already in use by a normal person, but then some apocalyptic thing happened and now it's Author. Aside from his reality-warping powers and particular flavor of delusions, Author was also given the tools to ply his trade: a sharp eye for plot, a silver tongue to direct the cast in the right direction, and knowledge of stories the world over, for inspiration.

Author's been roaming around, trying to find a cast worthy of the novel he has in mind…

Miscellaneous

While Author's psychology is pretty non-standard, he is still human, with human wants/needs and human follies.
