Biography of a Necromancer

Imagine, if you will, dear visitor: A pale tow-headed man of about six feet tall, in his late twenties, dressed sensibly in black from head to toe. He carries with him a Gladstone bag, containing, among other things, the following: a set of precise surgical scalpels, his late father's silver matchbox, what appears to be a padded case that contains various elixers and potions from his experimentations, a switchblade, whatever tome he's stolen from a private collection, and most certainly, a Webley .577 revolver. Various exotic tokens and ritualistic devices can often be found in his bag as well.

He speaks in a British manner, but has a faint Teutonic accent. If you were able, perchance, to get a glimpse of his eyes beyond his smoke-tinted glasses, you would find them to be blue. But if you were to look past the color, you might, at times, find them to be tired, sharp, or most distressingly, absolutely soulless.

Johannes Cabal is the main character of the same named series by author Jonathan L. Howard. A scientist who studies the illegal art of Necromancy in a world similar to ours, past adventures include: Stopping the zombie apocalypse; staying in on a rather dreary day; running an evil carnival to gather 100 wayward souls for Satan in return for his own, with the assistance of his vampire brother Horst; solving a series of political murders to stop a war caused by a power hungry military. He approaches life with the philosophy that death is mankind's greatest enemy (well, besides its own stupidity.) He's willing to do anything to achieve his goals, whatever the cost, be it blood, money, or his own soul.

The Necromancer, Himself


As you wish.

One Johannes Cabal, necromancer (of some little infamy,) detective, blasphemer, grave pilferer, carnival proprietor, and overall, a lying, cheating b*****d.
(In the sense of the insult; My father was an upstanding gentleman, if you will.)

Hates: I don't hate, I have extreme dis-likings.

Dislikes: Small children, large children, elderly people, revenants who refuse to co-operate, mobs, angry villagers, angry relatives of the recently deceased, getting stuck in timeless dimensions, Leonie Barrow, killing, being forced to kill, people generally in my way, political intrigue, demons with nothing better to do than whine at me, Horst's similies (Why. Why are they always sexual?) carnivals, being forced to run a carnival to get my soul back, having to claim 100 souls for Satan (Who knew you needed your own for necromancy? Go figure...), slobbering guard dogs, social interaction, etc....

On Heroics:

"I do almost everything for reasons that might be characterized as selfish. I regard my life as a vital thread in the ongoind march of humanity from protoplasm to-- I don't know, to be honest. Something better than protoplasm would be a start. Therefore, anything that threatens my life now or later has to be dealt with. Paradoxically, that often means risking my life to secure my safety. The difference is that I risk it on my own terms."

Insults, slurs, and cries of revenge

I'll just have to make sure to try and avoid the stress again.

I really need to clean out my room in the basement here, but grandma told me to wait.

Yeah, the reason it happened stinks, but I really needed this break. Not sick anymore either, makes me wonder if it was the stress keeping it around.

Yeah, it is really cute. Some of the 'battles' can be tough, but it's so rewarding solving conflicts without fighting.
He's been really good since we've been here. I think he's relieved to have a break from the puppy.
It's a little surprising he's gone this long without needing to go back for it, but we knew it was coming again.

He'll be out sometime this week. Just needs to get rid of the excess fluid.

She seems to. Goliath's being super-good, too. Not harassing Shadow at all.

Plus I finished Undertale, and got the sort of happy ending I adore.

Doing alright. Dad's back in the hospital(not for his foot, at least), so I'm at grandma's for a few days. So mostly I'm relaxing and playing games between helping her around the house.

Pfft. Sounds like something Goliath would do.

Good, that's always nice.

Hey, how's it going?

Yeah, I got 5 new games (plus an expansion pre-order for another, which'll be fun when it comes out) from awesome friends, and they're all fun.

Yep. And I do have new games to keep me busy while I'm sick.
