Powers

Celestial Technology

Simply put, Inkless can build technology that can’t or shouldn’t exist. She draws upon divine inspiration and the dreams of men to power her devices. She uses this almost exclusively to build firearms. Some almost seem real, others are insane in build and function.

Inspiration

Inkless was, or is, a being of pure creativity and inspiration. Her primary purpose was divine inspiration, subtly driving people toward great works. It’s an ability she was never meant to use on herself.

Celestial Body

Since she is a literal being of magic, Inkless is forced to ‘create’ a body to affect the physical world with. This brings her several advantages.

The Divine Armory

The following are guns, devices and vehicles Thessa is fond of using. She essentially only has enough ethereal energy for a single firearm plus some few other sundry items like her car. When she needs a new item, she ritualistically disassembles the item she has and builds the new one by hand, with parts that slowly become real as she reaches for them.

Communist Party Cannon

The Party Cannon is a small, sleek handgun with a giant barrel. It looks like a vintage ray gun that would fit right in with a Buck Rogers serial, with a rounded design and a fat little power meter on the back end. It’s fire engine red, with a few warnings and other things in Cyrillic underneath the power meter, and a big hammer and sickle stamped on both sides in bold, shiny black. The beam it fires is thick and bright yellow.

The Lost Cosmonaut’s Equipment

This is actually two pieces that clearly belong with the Party Cannon. One is a sleek red bracer that hugs the left arm and continues to the elbow, covered in buttons, dials and gauges. It’s all in Cyrillic, but most of them are easy to understand anyway. The other piece is a large mouth guard with twin oxygen tanks that looks like a cross between a painter’s rebreather and a proper gas mask. It’s bright red, sleek and retro, and both tanks have a black hammer and sickle on the sides. Shiny red jumpsuit not included.

Chaingun

The Chaingun is a shotgun-like rifle with a comically enormous barrel. The loading mechanism is a cylinder similar to a revolver, each chamber of it nearly half a foot wide and making the firearm look almost more like a grenade launcher. It literally fires tangles of chains that wrap and lock around foes. On the side of the huge barrel, the phrase ‘GET IT?’ is scrawled in white paint.

Sprinkles the Workplace Safety Clown

Sprinkles is a wide, two-handed rifle. Instead of a barrel the stout white gun is molded into a jolly clown’s face and arms. His mouth is open, his hat is a garishly painted construction worker’s helmet, and his hands have several comical booboos and bandages. His expression looks to be something between happiness and shock. The rifle itself needs to be “started” by a ripcord similar to a chainsaw, and has a small but obvious tank of gas in its butt. When the trigger is pulled, Sprinkles either laughs or screams comically(it seems to be random) and fires a brightly painted circular saw blade from his mouth.

Volatile Funk, The Dance Thrower

Volatile Funk is one of ten felfire flamethrowers gifted to Nybbas, the demon prince of the media. It consists of a backpack tank connected to a ‘rifle’ style emitter similar to a WWII flamethrower. The rounded backpack is decorated with garish, light-up panels that flash on and off so long as the weapon is on. Two thirds up the tank, the squares ‘trail off’ to leave pure black paint and a massive ‘biohazard’ symbol of mirrored glass in the center. The rifle is connected with a corded metal hose plated gold. The Rifle itself is also plated gold, with a bar of neon red light running down either side of the gun. The oversized ‘head’ of the gun is styled to look like a microphone. When used, the felfire it throws glows in multicolored, neon patches instead of the signature dire blacks and greens of hellfire.

Eleanor

Thessa’s car Eleanor is an old, four door hearse painted as a bright yellow cab. Additionally, it’s been supercharged, and an air intake juts out of the hood. The little yellow light atop the roof usually says ‘off duty’ but she’s known to switch it to ‘on duty’ when she’s feeling bored. Still, even her car is made of the same ethereal energy as her weapons, and she’s not shy about collapsing it if she needs the raw potential for something else. (Total Cost 5)

Sketch

Sketch is a familiar Inkless made a long time ago out of an artist’s reference doll. She lost track of him because of then-frequent trips back to heaven that he couldn’t follow…and she
deactivated him once she found out mortals were teaching him to draw magic from blood. Mixed into his paint, he could use the life energy to create things permanently…literally granting wishes. What’s worse, he’d try to ‘help’ his owner as best he could…which involved killing people who wronged him and using their blood. Once that taint was purged from him, Inkless felt safe reinvigorating the familiar. (Total Cost 5)

Bio:

Name: Inkless, “Thessa”
Height: 5’4"
Weight: 120lbs
Concept: Errant Muse
Music: The Colorless Set List

Inkless in her human form is usually small and frail-seeming. She’s albino except for her eyes, which are a rainbow hue rotating through the colors around her pupils. Her features are delicate, almost doll-like because of her indeterminate age. Her skin is alabaster white and pure, and her slim build is only minorly athletic. She favors dark colored clothes, and conservative wear focused toward dresses.

She goes through phases with her shape changing nature. Currently her body is thicker and a little taller, with an immense bust that began as a joke to see how badly she could distract the students. She’s kept it much longer than she intended, however. Her current dress is closer punk than her buttoned-down conservative clothing of before.

Her ‘true’ angelic form lacks a halo. Her hair changes color to match the rainbow hues of her eyes, and her wings appear to be made of paper, scrolls, and shocks of multicolored paint. She’s a little taller and curvier of build, but this is mostly obscured underneath black plate mail armor. It is crafted elegantly in a gothic style, but lacks the many adornments that one would expect from the era.

Inkless’ corporeal form is ultimately malleable, being mostly just a thought form she’s inhabiting. While she rarely uses its malleable nature for deception, she’s also known to frequently use a child version of her typical human form.

Inkless won’t say when she fell from Heaven, but her knowledge of history suggests it was a long, long time ago. There are easily obtained pictures of her at Woodstock, as well as New York in the 20s. As far as the world’s mundanes are concerned, she simply showed up at a diner in Kentucky one night in January, 1890. She wasn’t wearing anything but a robe, and extremely confused. She was given some food and a place to sleep by the restaurant’s owner, and she was gone by morning. She wandered and did small jobs for quite a long time, judging by her appearances and stories. She was approached several years ago by Doctor Plott himself to put an end to a student project tracking an obviously magical being through word of mouth and photos. Though her wanderlust wasn’t sated, she did agree to stay at Consummatae Obice Magicae Academy for a time. At first, she simply told stories and wandered around campus, showing up at any party or event she could. After much hesitation, she accepted a ‘part time’ job as a professor. Officially, she’s Professor Inkless, but she’s taken to using Thessa as a first name after some of the staff insisted she ought to have one. She teaches a class on History of the Magical World with a certain abundance of flair in her methods. She sticks to the syllabus she’s been given, but has habits of filling in details with personal stories, pulling favors from friends, or showing the class a piece of anachronistic tech or enchanting firsthand. She also helps with the art departments, though in a somewhat unofficial manner. She frequently handles sets and costumes for the acting classes, and always sits in on rehearsals so she can give deserving students a little boost in confidence using her inspiration abilities.

The truth is, Thessa is running from responsibility. She’s a muse, an angel of inspiration and creativity who didn’t fall from Heaven so much as leap. Tired of her role and sick of only ever watching the world from afar, she began using her powers of inspiration on herself. When it became obvious she may be punished for doing so, she ran. She did so quietly, unlike the Morning Lord. She didn’t care about fairness or revolution…only escape. She’s lucky in that few students or even staff members know she’s literally from heaven and not simply some celestial-blooded immortal, but she’s had to answer uncomfortable questions enough that she has prepared answers. When asked why someone would leave Heaven, she tends to quote Thoreau’s Walden.

“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”
