Below are the individuals that have influence and shape Hamilton into what it is today. It should be noted that the PC's should ether never or extremely rarely meet these characters. Any of the below should be only used at very grave or important moments. But when it is nessary to bring the NPC's in, the Storyteller should avoid giving too much help from them.
During the American civil war, a unit of African American soldiers were formed to help out the Union. Theo was already a
respected Major at the age of 23, and enjoying a prosperous life. Going to fancy dinners and balls, became engaged to a beautiful
woman who was the daughter of a Governor. But then he was posted to the new unit. Unlike many of the officer and senior
ranks, he was not prejudice towards the black folk. He had a respect for there ability to make the best of everything, and soon gained their trust. Unfortunately, the major would never has his chance to return to the dinners or his fiancee. A daring mission the group volunteered for was the units last. The Grim Legion's Reaper took him to his new unit in Boston's Necropolis. Though his capabilities were undisputed, Theo quickly fell into a depression. So much he wished to reach to his x-future wife. He
watched her marriage with another man, watched her grow old, and watched her died. But she never traveled across the shroud.
Theo more bitter and lonely. He became increasing more strict and once he was high enough on the ladder, he was almost never
seen. He did however continue his work, and developed some excellent tactics against spectres. To test them, the Hierarchy sent him to set up a special unit to help rebuild and defend it's habour. Reluctantly he went to Hamilton, to test his new theories. They were successful in keeping the spectre population in check, well not taking many causalities themselves. Theo has never bothered to leave Hamilton, and stays deep inside one of the many dock warehouses were the Sea Lions base is also located. For the moment he still the SL acting commander.
William of Clan Cameron has always been a freedom fighter. He was one Scots that fought the English tyranny. And fought
he did, until his death by the sword. But he continues fight, this time against the Hierarchy, and fighting is his strongest passion. He has lead rebellions throughout eastern Europe's Shadowlands, and even took the fight to Stygia once, but was quickly repelled. Every time William always escapes.
In life, he had a wife and four children. They were all burned alive inside their house by English soldiers: this is what drove his hatred for the English. His Fetters are still in Scotland: his sword, which is at a museum; his family's grave; and the castle at which he was executed. He visits these sites regularly. In battle, he was a fierce beast of war, unmatched in sheer brutality. But he is also cunning and has a mind for tactical campaigning. While on the run from the local Legionnaires, William came to Hamilton. The largest group of Renegades at the time, The Harbour Boys, took him in for protection. William soon organised an effort against the Hierarchy. Unfortunately, the uprising was stopped, and William had to flee once again. He returned in 1948 after seeing the sudden weakness in the Hierarchy defence. His attacks unfortunately caused both a huge industrial disaster in
the Skinlands and a Maelstrom in the Necropolis. William has disappeared yet again. It would be best for him not to return again, as he has many grudges. But no one knows where he has gone or what has come of him.
Sir Charles Thantia III
Faction:Order of the Thorn/Skeleton Legion
Sir Thantia was a Knight of Windsor, and as a great honour, was sent on the Crusades. While traveling through Turkey, a small child, covered in ragged clothes, came running his way, fleeing from a burly man with a club. The Knight quickly went to the child's aid and stopped the man. When the child hugged him, Sir Thantia saw the child's face. He reared back in horror. The child's face was covered in pus-filled boils, and flies crawled from the corners of her eyes. Several weeks after this ordeal, Sir Thantia came down with a hideous disease. The same fate had come to the old Knight as did the girl before him. So in Israel, he was buried. And there, a Reaper of The Skeletal Legion waited. Still dazed and confused, he was employed as a Legionnaire. Soon, Sir Thantia gained the same respect that he received in life. He quickly raised through the ranks, all the way to Regent. The old knight always went into the field with his troops; not one sit behind a desk, he was right into the thick of things. But one battle he lost. Most thought he had been simply sucked into Oblivion. But in truth, he had become Spectre, and over a century had grown powerful. In 1800's a group of Darksiders found this legend. They tried Shadow Wrack many times, and on the 15th, he was finally converted back to a Wraith. But many of his Dark Arcanos and skills remained as did his ever powerful shadow. The Doomslayers took him under their wing, both to help him and learn new secrets of the Spectres. After helping with World War II's Maelstrom, Sir Thantia heard of Hamilton's major accident. So the old knight saddled up once again. He helped fight back Hamilton's Maelstrom, then assisted in the forming of the Sea Lions, a combined group of Harbingers, Darksiders, Doomslayers, and regular Legionnaires to defend the harbour and hunt out Spectre activity in the local Tempest. Sir Thantia also led the attack of Shade Island. He regularly visits Hamilton to check on its status, but never reveals he's there.
