Features of the Game
Professor Jeremy Terrance

The good professor of anthropology teaches at Miskatonic University and sometimes gives speeches or seminars at Arkham High. He is knowledgeable and comfortable in the field as well as behind a stack of books. He is well aware of the ancient mysteries and history of the earth. He adopted Rory seeing how the youth was special and not so tainted as to be out of touch with his human roots. He has been raising Rory to help defend the earth from the horrors he is well aware are out there.

He has also seen something special in Zoey but isn't sure if she is one of the poor results of something like the tragedy and perversion that happened at Innsmouth.
He is worried that Otto seems to realize that Rory isnt quite human.

A relatively good man Professor Terrance acts the part of (Giles) for His adopted son and Zoey.

He also has a past with Malcom Danvers the two seem to go back a long way but have strong differences of opinion. There is some indication they used to be best of friends though something happened in the past to change that.  Not quite enemies they still know how to push eachothers buttons.


Doctor Malcom Danvers A doctor of psychology who works at Arkham Asylum. He is also a skilled demonologist and sorceror. Though these are sides of him most people don't get to see. A fellow Alumni to Ezekial Eisenberg and Jeremy Terrance he sometimes returns to Miskatonic for a bit of lore or for other reasons.

He has gotten to know Rory and taken to counseling him on magic as a tool not merely something to fear.

He is also the father to Allura Danvers though this is mostly appearances as the truth is he summoned her to this plane. An abusive master he tends to see Allura as his tool. He has his suspicions about Rory and Zoey.



Sam Clay an aspiring medical student who is good friends with Allura Danvers and Susan Eisenberg who he has a crush on. He is a fellow student of the Leads at Arkham High School and though a serious student he has a bit of an artist spirit which he expresses while playing drums at the Brimstone and Brine with Allura.

He has been trying to impress Ezekial because he knows the man can seriously help him as well as the fact he is interested in Ezekial's daughter. Sadly with Ezekial trying to shut down the Brimstone and Brine he is often inbetween his love for music and the popularity he never had before playing and the serious young man Ezekial expects him to be.

Professor Jeremy Terrance was an ordinary though brilliant young man growing up in Arkham. His intense desire to learn and help people lead him to the attention of the Council of Guardians. As he grew up he discovered a love for other cultures and anthropology in general. It was his early years of globe trotting that lead him to discovering bits and pieces of Mythos lore.

His contributions to the university of Miskatonic lead to the Council of Guardians finally coming out of the shadows to offer him membership. This membership came with wealth and access to resources and a more complete understanding of the hidden nature of the world and forces beyond it.

Malcolm Danvers born to a line of sorcerers and warlocks he early on delved into exploring the worlds beyond this one. He became good friends with Jeremy Terrance when the two attended university together. Indeed the two men hit it off in learning the wonders of the world. Terrance researching the beliefs, religions and lifestyles of foreign people and Malcolm exploring the inner workings of the human mind.

When Terrance started researching Mythos lore Malcolm became fascinated with these worlds beyond and beings even in his magical research he had never even heard of. Things turned sour when Jeremy denied him any knowledge of the Mythos claiming it could blast a mans mind and he didn't want his friend effected by the horrible revelations.

Malcolm saw this as Jeremy hoarding the power for himself and lead the two to become rivals ever more.

Finally during his summonings he was able to reach beyond this world and call in a succubi. Changing his life and letting him realize he could have great power wielding these beings from beyond.
