Twisted Confessional | Coh

Lxndr

Butterflies

Lxndr is Alexander Cherry, the owner of Twisted Confessions. He's always up for some good roleplay, or just some good heroic action. He prefers the unconventional hero builds - those powers beloved by powergamers rarely show up on his characters. Nonetheless, his characters still hold their own alongisde more conventionally-optimized builds. He can be somewhat opinionated, often offensive or just off-putting. His deadpan sense of humor and kinked way of looking at the world might drive you away. But he's very creative, and a good person. Try him, you might like him!

'Vanity characters' are just characters to play with, without necessarily a story. Eventually, their stories might be created, but they're in the dugout right now.


Lxndr started on Liberty, but didn't make much effort to connect his characters to each other.

Then, a project was begun with other roleplayers on Pinnacle. Eventually, said roleplayers left City of Heroes for Warcraft, but not before these characters became "real." It was eventually decided that characters on Pinnacle would only exist in servitude of the story that was being developed, which is called Legacy.

Then, Liberty started filling, and unwilling to affect the Pinnacle story, Lxndr looked far afield, and colonized Virtue. Again, Virtue was treated like Liberty, not much effort to connect the characters to each other.

Finally, Lxndr returned after years away, with scads of new ideas. He decided to avoid Virtue as it is a massively populated server, and so unlikely to have the names he wanted. He eventually chose Defiant as his fourth home.

By this point, Lxndr had characters with variations of the name 'Joule Thief' on several servers, including Defiant, Pinnacle and Virtue. Then he created a second 'Eigenstate' on Defiant, as well as made plans for a second 'Titan Arum' on Defiant as well. By this point it was clear that these were somewhat similar universes, and so Lxndr decided to explore what might have caused these different realities to blossom.


A unified theory of multiverse narrative: Unless dramatically interesting, we assume the reverberations from the point of divergence does not significantly impact people's lives, and that the rest of the world is more-or-less similar.

Also: power is personal, how you affect the future generations is more meaningful.

Other presumptions:

heroing gives you a stipend the 'Destined Ones' list changes based on the universe


Divergence

In the late 1600s, during the hysteria of the Salem witch hunts, in a small town called Medea, Connecticut, the town's mayor, Brutus Mistell, (also the priest of its one church) led several hunts. One of these was against the Titus family, which also resided in Medea.

What happened to the Titus family is the point of divergence for all four universes.

Things to note: Brutus Mistell's family line included the Mistells. Damian Titus's family line included the Magrath, as well as other Tituses.

Defiant

(brandi NO, parker YES)

In this universe, Damian manages to defend his family from the angry mob. Unfortunately, this defense leads to the death of Reverend Brutus Mistell - and, as a result, stops his family line.

Liberty

(brandi YES, parker NO)

Somehow, Persephone Titus (and her children) are burned, trapped in the family house. They all die, thus stopping the Titus family line. Damian lives.

Pinnacle

(brandi YES, parker YES)

The Titus family successfully rebuffs the angry mob. Nobody dies.

Virtue

(parker NO, brandi NO)

Damian is trapped in the house along with his family. As he dies, his death curse destroys the entire town of Medea, and kills all its inhabitants. His death curse also echoes back and forth through time, reacing at least one thousand years in either direction, perforating the local universe.

Many family lines are stopped, including the Titus and Mistell lines. Both these family lines would have produced individuals that would have a positive influence on the universe; without them, and the other family lines, Virtue is a cold, lonely place teetering on corruption.
