Full List of Skills:
Both of Eddy’s parents died when he was very young, barely old enough to remember them. He was raised by his childless aunt(father’s sister) and uncle, Melanie and Ethan Bade. Melanie was very caring and kind, while Ethan tended to be distant and cool. His aunt and uncle were fairly well off, as Ethan was a good stock broker(Melanie taught at a public middle school). His guardians paid to have Eddy put in private schools, and he did well until high school- when he discovered his ability to see ghosts. In school, he was very quiet and made few friends, at times picked on by others, which became worse as his ability developed. As he focused more and more on the supernatural, his grades began to slip and he began clashing with his uncle.
Aspect: Well-Off Weirdo
After a huge fight with his uncle over his stagnant grades, Eddy drops out of college to join the amateur paranormal investigators “Specter Seekers”. Ethan kicks Eddy out of the house, and demands he renounce his abnormal hobby and go back to college before he can come back. After suddenly being cut-off from funds, Eddy quickly finds a minimum wage job and deals with poverty for the first time. When he isn’t working, his ability to find strongly haunted locations propels the Specter Seekers from obscurity to minor YouTube celebrities. But just as soon as the Seekers started to gain attention of the masses, they gained the attention of something else. Suddenly their channel is deleted, equipment totally destroyed, and it seemed as though fate itself convened to keep the group from re-forming.
Aspect: The Truth is Out There
My Story: – College Carnage
Guest Appearances: Vernon, Shaun
When a string of strange deaths occurs at the university he previously dropped out of, Eddy returns to his old campus to solve the mystery. But will Eddy succeed when his ghost speaking abilities prove useless for the first time?
The murders turn out to be creatures from the never never able to attack mortal spirits as well as physical forms. One attempts to attack Vernon, but is not able to feed off a part-fae soul and explodes into a vaguely apple-scented cloud. I’ll flesh this out better when I have time. (Aspect: Unnatural nature)
Eddy finds Shaun already on the campus and after a bit of discussion, they realize they on the same case. With some persuasion (and the promise of some Advil) Shaun uses his Third Eye to find where the ghosts have gone, and tracks down a strange rune on the wall that seems to be pulling ghosts and people alike into The Never Never.
