World Building: The Chronicler

Affectionately referred to as “my other half” by The Sybil, he is privy to all events which have come to pass. Tasked with maintaining historic records, his eternal foe is the rewriting of history by others. He does not require payment if one wants to learn from him, but only accepts audiences with scholars as he has no interest in settling personal disputes. On occasion he is requested for criminal matters as a final resort. 

In order to recall an event he either has to think of it himself or the requester must write a summary for him to review. Given the vastness of the realm, he is able to manifest numerous versions of himself on this plane to better serve his role.

A true immortal- he is unable to complete his cycle, continuing an unwavering existence. If injured, he will heal at a normal rate unless the injury is fatal at which point his body will regenerate immediately. When The Sybil descends beneath the sea of lotuses, he takes over her residence until her inevitable return.

Numen of Dreams cannot ‘pluck’ his memories, but can visit his dreams. He is not a sibling of Numen of Dreams or The Sybil although it is a common misconception. 

When asked if there is a being who oversees or is connected to events as they happen, he offers two explanations. Nature can neither move backward nor jump ahead in time- forever sealed in the immediate. However, once a moment passes, he can access it and if it has not passed then The Sybil can sense it. Since the present is an ever shifting point in time there is no being such as himself linked to this singular moment.

Additional Information

  • When bantering with The Sybil, he often says he knows what she “fails to remember”. In turn she reminds him she knows what he longs for.
