O sages standing in God’s holy fire
As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
And be the singing-masters of my soul.
Consume my heart away; sick with desire
And fastened to a dying animal
It knows not what it is; and gather me
Into the artifice of eternity.


Once out of nature I shall never take
My bodily form from any natural thing,
But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make
Of hammered gold and gold enamelling
To keep a drowsy Emperor awake;
Or set upon a golden bough to sing
To lords and ladies of Byzantium
Of what is past, or passing, or to come.

W. B. Yeats, "Sailing to Byzantium"

RP Hooks

Age: If you have some way of determining a person's true age, Thea's is almost guaranteed to draw your interest.

Ancient Languages: Her Attic and Byzantine Greek are excellent, but she has the most peculiar accent.

Byzantine and Turkish History: Thea knows a fair bit about these.

Con Artist: She's very, very good at talking people into doing things that they might not normally consider. Do you need to have someone convinced of something important?

Mage: If you're a Tradition Mage, Thea'll be very happy to meet you. Unless you're a Hermetic; then she'll be somewhat less happy.

Memories: Many of Thea's are missing, which is odd, because she has a very good memory. If she sees a prospect of recovering them, she's likely to jump at it.

Other Worlds: Not only is she aware of the existence of other worlds, she's often paying attention to them. And she's got a gift for dealing with their inhabitants.

Short-Term Work: Unfortunately, she's pretty bad at handling money. Thea's often looking for a no-strings way to make a quick buck.
