Vital Statistics

Full Name
Mikael Williams
Mike, Mikey
Date of Birth
December 21, 1955
Apparent Age
Late 20s




Mikael (That's pronounced as Michael. His mother wasn't great with spelling.) is a new arrival to Portland. He arrived shortly after the revolution, catching wind of it while he his nomadic tendencies carried him across the country from Circle to Circle. He heard what his brothers and sisters of the Crone had been living with in Portland, and felt compelled to make his way to the city to see what he could do to help them find solid footing in the new paradigm.




Appalachian Dead Wolf


Mike was born a Wolfblood. Even if he'd never been embraced, turning was never in the cards for him. A few in his family had though, and he grew up on spirits, folk lore and magic, and well aware of the monsters in the hills.


Dirty Filthy Pagan


Mikey is a dedicated Crone. While he doesn't have a great deal of personal status, he has climbed from being a mere Fool to a Hero beneath the tutelage of his sire, which in turn guides much of his nomadic wanderings.




Vietnam framed his mortal life. He was born as it opened and he was drafted in the final years of the conflict. His time as a soldier in the war was influential enough that he will still answer that he is a soldier when asked what he is decades later. It's a simple head space to occupy, comfortable and familiar, and doesn't demand much of his likewise simple intellect.

Cautionary Tale

The Mostly-Dead One


Currently the lone member still around Portland, holding down the fort for the time being and waiting to see if anyone returns.


Circle of the Crone



That's right, he's a Big Damn Hero. This means he's one of the witches tasked with getting shit done, especially when it's not all together as straight forward as 'Bash his face in.'






Quinn Ashe


The sweetest damn harpy you ever did meet. Good head on 'er shoulders and someone t'keep me in touch with th'modern day. Won't lie, takin' a strong likin' to her.





Strange duck, this one. Reckon she's gonna do a good job though. Good head on her shoulders.





Hope I got a lick of th'wit this old fucker's still got if I'm still walkin' 'round at his age.



Dayana Oliver


Findin' a gleam of daylight on a real dark night seems like the sorta thing to pay attention to.



Juliette Mitchell


Just a lil bit more than I was bargainin' for, but that's only been a bad thing half th'time.
