Birdman

Player Name

Doctor_Light

Name

The Goddamn Birdman

Concept

A somewhat mythological cryptid, disturbed by the recent events and emerging from hiding.

Power

Now You See Me: The birdman is famous for disappearing and appearing like a ghost- to hide or otherwise move quietly, roll Magic instead of Stealth. Additionally, by spending an Action point, Birdman can use his Stealth score to hide or cover another person, as well as himself.

Aspects

Brickshit Scary: Is a supernatural nonhuman entity apparently right out of urban legends. Tends to cause fear or distress, especially (though not only) on locals familiar with the story.
Inhuman: In addition to being the shadowy figure of a man with a bird’s head, he also seems to operate on a completely different agenda from people. He must eat something but it’s not food, and flitting about mysteriously or vanishing for hours (and creeping the heebie-jeebies out of strangers) are parts of a normal day. In short, fuck if anyone knows what’s going on in his head.
Eldritch Origins: A magic-based creature, susceptible to anything that attacks magic. Additionally, while no one’s sure what the birdman is exactly or where it came from, it seems to be scared of summoning circles.

Personal History

Legends of the man with the face of a bird have been running around since ancient times, but they’ve died out mostly until some documentary filmmakers caught a glimpse of the entity in 1999- since then, there have been sightings in Tennant Creek, Top Spring, and Lake Woods. A couple of campers who died under mysterious circumstances in 2004 added bulk to the legend, and the “North Woods Birdman” or “Outback Birdman” has enjoyed a cult celebrity status in the area ever since. No conclusive evidence of its existence, of course, was ever found or produced.
That is, until the world turned upside-down. Now, the bird-man has emerged from hiding and seems to be interested in restoring normality to the world, and has allied itself with people at last- well, at least, it seems to have.

Miscellaneous

6'5". Easily recognizable, because he is a shadowy human with the face of a giant bird. Exact details are hard to pinpoint or describe, unless one is in very bright light. Even then, features tend to change. The birdman may or may not develop claws when attacking.
