Homer

Player:

Mr_Wilt

Name:

Homer

Species:

Caeligo (augmented)

Concept:

Unorthodox Mathematician

Aspects:

  • Homer, The Blind: Caeligo have relatively bad eyesight, and Homer is not an exception to this. While their vision covers the most basic shapes and colors, they don't cover much else, making it a requirement for them to physically feel out their surroundings, either with their manipulators or their bulb's sensory feelers, if they want to get a better idea of what their environment looks like.
  • Lemme Touch: Homer, like most of his species, is both incredibly impulsive and inquisitive, often rushing off toward objects with little regard for self-preservation in order to examine them closer. He'll often attempt to do things regardless of the consent of those around him, his impulsive curiosity far stronger than any regard for his 'superiors'. Should Homer be denied the permission to thoroughly examine something, he'll often break down into an emotional fit, until removed from the scene or given permission.
  • Knowledge Seeker: Homer is naturally drawn toward learning things. He makes an effort to learn as much as possible about anything, and will go out of his way to learn of things that significantly interest him. When studying or researching a topic, he's been known to stay up for hours on end, either avidly researching it, or simply pondering it, testing it with other abstract theories.
