Minor Ability:
-/0: Wizards Constitution

-1: Marked by Power (Emperor Norton, recognized as Spiritual Magistrate of the Moats & Walls of Golden Mountain by the Celestial Court)
-4 Sponsored Magic (Places of Power-His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, Lord of The Golden Mountains Walls & Moats, as genius loci : Attuned, can be used outside the Place of Power. Especially apt for warding citizens of San Francisco, as well as veiling or manipulating their perceptions, with Evocations methods & Speed, : but has very neglible intellectus, as it only shows the world as Emperor Norton thinks it ought to be. This version of Nortons magic is especially potent against malevolent beings from Chinese mythology, such as the Jade Court Guǐxiāns, lowering their magical Toughness by 1 level.

Background: Where did he come from?
Educated from birth, by expensive private tutors, in jet-setting Chinese enviroment, to become Incense Master of the Golden Mountain Triad.
Phase Aspect: Suave Taoist.

Rising Conflict: What shaped him?
Then Father (Blond Wang) abruptly ascended to the Bhuddist Pure Lands. Hid out in San Francisco/Golden Mountains alternative street scene, both as part of his, rather rushed, initiation ritual, but also to avoid the competition. Eventually made comeback with help from the Imperial Council of San Francisco.
His current “official” job is being a Judge at Tattoo Contests.
Story Title: Help, Dads gone Bhuddhist!
Phase Aspect: Queer freinds, queerer enemies.

The Story: What was his first adventure?
Can the Incense Master convince the current manifestation of the Emperor Norton, Frank Chu, that the “Peace & Progress Society” is not the tool of the VITGROROLLIONS OF POPULATIONS?! Perhaps by both being bounced by Alex Lu?
Story Title:
Phase Aspect: Zealot of Norton.

Guest Star Redux:
