A Character in the City of Mists: Order of the Watchtower campaign

Description[edit]

Garryman.jpeg

An Ex-firefighter who got burned out due to the unusual number of arson in the city, Garry became a rift in the mist of a episode of questioning his life recently after leaving the service. It was a stormy day as he walked through park gathering his thoughts when he saw a poster for the latest version of the Agents of Hope, "Agents of Hope: 4ever helping". Remembering his sister's and his favourite kid shows and how they lead him to want to be a hero. As he looked at the poster it seemed to start to glow and turn from a poster to a animated scene of th World of Hope till something shoot out of the poster hitting him. Garry awoke in his bed the next day, at first thinking what happened was but a dream till he saw a confused and distressed Kuruudo in his room and the small but subtle changes in his body. Garry dived into the role of protecting people as much as he could as a adult man agent of hope, questioning what it means and if he was worthy of such a role. It was during this amateur heroine that the Watchtower found and invited him to join.

Now Garry spends his time serving the order or volunteering at the rainbow centre, spending as little as he can afford odd jobbing to fund his living expenses.

Name Help Hurt
Sebby 1 0
Roger 1 0
Baku 1 0
Kara 1 -1

To your Mythos, one of them seems like the modern-day/real world version of a character in its legend. If they were your foe in the legend, take a Hurt point on them. If they were your ally or loved one, or if you were their rescuer, take a Help point on them. Hmm. Agents of Hope sounds like a show that'd have a helpful cuddly-tapir baku. (A show more like Puella Magi Madoka Magica would probably have the twisted one!) Cuddly-tapir baku helps someone get over a fear of something giving them nightmares.


Gary once took Sebby on a ride on Kuruudo as part of a mission, what was the mission and did it bring us closer together or farther apart. The mission was surveillance and I think it brought us closer together. I think sebby got used to being blown around and maybe kuruudo had a lil bit of a acrobatic show off spirit which made it fun.


BlueRain/Gary once witnessed Kara expressing her Mythos at full power. What did they thought about it? (If it scared them, take a Hurt point on them. If they appreciated it, take a Help point on them. Also this event seems to play into my characters defining relationship's some one protected the focus of your relationship take help on them. I'm not sure what the situation would have been, perhaps Kara unofficially expedited some insurance work by going full vampire dominance on some investigators who thought they could get away with not paying up after an LGBT club burned down? I like the situation, most likely it would have been at the rainbow centre being used as a meeting place and Gary walking in on during the meeting likely carrying refreshments. While he would have been shocked at first, he would appreciate that such abilities are being used to aid rather the to harm his community. That makes sense. I'm imagining him walking in to see Kara pinning an insurance man to the wall, full rift-power charisma and strength as speed turning a little awkward as the refreshments arrive :) On the same page here, maybe with an awkward "I'd just leave these here." from Gary as he leaves.

One of them makes you feel weak and vulnerable or one of them actually has the capacity to break through your defenses. Take a Hurt point on them. Kara as a vampire for better or worst his mythos identifies you as a "agent of despair" and as a member of the antagonistic force it is assumed your actions are always by intent even when they are not. I think this one fits really well, and honestly, the vampire Mythos probably does belong classed as an "agent of despair." Also, once you've watched her interact with others a little, there's got to be a little bit of you that wonders if Kara is fooling you into thinking she's on your side. So I think that fits well!

One of them once witnessed you expressing your Mythos at full power. Ask them what they thought about it. If it scared them, take a Hurt point on them. If they appreciated it, take a Help point on them. Roger's Mythos is frickin' Odin. A magical girl controlling the rains isn't going to scare him. He'll appreciate both her mystical abilities and her ability to heal others, which is not one of Odin's strong points.

Agents of hope anime[edit]

All notes on the Agent's of hope anime

The World of Hope exists and is where the mascots are from

What's Kuruudo like in terms of personality (annoying, wise, supportive, etc.)? Fairly laid back and helpful but with a thunderous temper, was wise advisor in the original show and smart enough to realise that our world works diffenrtly but habits are habits.

Are there any other notable heroes or villains from Blue Rain that might manifest as Rifts? Well there are the other 5 colourful Agents (Colour and element themed) and their mascots, Then the Enemies of despair, an organisation aimed at reducing hope, ranging from the comedic team rocket like Venomous Veronica and Brash Barry to the serious and deadly Warring Wally and the Dark Drake lord. Edit: Maybe an Agent White a male Tuxedo Mask esc character.

Ae visit a dream would and a baku was a guide/protector have a helpful cuddly-tapir baku. Cuddly-tapir baku helps someone get over a fear of something giving them nightmares.

One scene I keep seeing from the show that doesn't exist is the girls in a class room with the mundane alter ego of Venomous Veronica, who makes comments to annoy RedFlame to the point of nearly flaming up and definitely to fight ready levels. So Blue rain summons up a baseball and a half sized orb of water and drops it on RedFlame's head to cool her off.

Just some silly potential background information that's been ratting around but agent's of hope shows, each a new generation of heroes.

1. Agents of Hope: Colourful magics (with around 124 episodes and 4 films)
2. Agents of Hope: Twin Rainbows ( with 112 episodes and 2 films)
3. Agents of Hope: Triangulating on love (84 episode and no film)
4. Agents of Hope: 4Ever Helping (17 episode ongoing)

Not necessarily canon but the names and rough length came to me and it made me interested.

BlueRain can't blood bend ergo control people by moving the water in their bodies, in fact the only liquid from a living thing BlueRain can control while it's still can be considered such is tears.

Which comes from the emotional/mental elements they represent, Healthy Sadness and melancholy, the "I'll cry today so I'll have the strength to move on tomorrow" or "The memories maybe bittersweet but they will give me strength". Plus there is an element of emotional overwhelming and relief mixed in at the edges. A big spoiler for the fictional show that the mantle of BlueRain originally was a mantle of dispair that was reformed but still has it's dark edge. Basically a mini-arch where she turns into a dark magical girl after something bad happened to her till her friends forced her to face it and let herself feel sad about it. "Dispair" wants there to be no emotion/depression and if emotion has to exist it should be the least healthy form.

The Agents of Despair, monstrous and magical as they are, were all once regular people who, for one reason or another, agreed to let another Agent transform them. This process would require the victim's consent, so many Agents were already evil people who wanted the extra power. However, others were simply people, even peers of the protagonists, who had a moment of weakness and are now too corrupted and monstrous to turn back. Some Agents of Despair, like Lonely Lukas or Dreaming Diana even made it their goal to push, tempt, and corrupt people into joining their ranks. However, as BlueRain demonstrates in the show, the Despairing are still redeemable.

Two storylines Ahmya started shop lifting and less like when Yuto fell to being an agent of despair.
