“We shed as we pick up, like travellers who must carry everything in their arms, and what we let fall will be picked up by those behind. The procession is very long and life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it."

“Oh, love isn't there to make us happy. I believe it exists to show us how much we can endure.”

Hooks

  • Current Moodboard: I've got a thought on my mind/I'm gonna keep it inside/I'm gonna lie to you/I've got a lot on my mind/But most of the time/I'm thinking about you/And if you throw me a line/And can you do me a favor?/Can you change this from minor to major? https://youtu.be/hfeMtA72sps


  • Ravnos: Flavien is looking for others of his clan after the destruction of the Week of Nightmares. He's from a relatively rare subsect of the Ravnos clan whose beliefs and way of life are somewhat different from the traditional idea of the Ravnos, and has been bearing the yoke of his clan's reputation -- and its consequences -- for a long time. With the Ravnos all but extinct and almost nobody around who remembers his bloodline or their deeds, he's settled into an uncomfortable existence as a modern-day pariah.


  • The Silk Road: An important part of Flavien's personal and cultural history. Do you study it? Have an interest in it? Maybe you'd like to have a chat about it sometime.


  • Secrets: A connoisseur and collector of information of all sorts, Flavien is a consummate keeper and spender of secrets - or, more accurately, gossip. If you want information spread, if there's something particular you want to make sure doesn't get spread around, or if you need to know something, he might be the person to contact.


  • Path of Harmony: Do you walk it? Would you like to learn more?


  • Fashion: Listen, being stylish was infinitely more expensive and inaccessible in the Dark Ages than it is now. Do you people have any idea the embarrassment of riches you have at your feet in terms of the sheer amount and variety of clothing you have available to you?! Flavien has no qualms about enjoying clothing - anything from thrift store to haute couture - and will gladly go shopping, play dress-up, or even be your mannequin.


  • Tannhauser Gate: The newest addition to the Chula Vista bayfront, Tannhauser Gate Oddity and Curiosity Shoppe houses a multitude of fanciful and bizarre treasures for the curious and morbid, as well as a coffee & cocktail bar, an event space, and, for those with Streetwise 3+, perhaps a little something else.
