When Enoli fled from the reservation towards Mexico, his leaving the tribe angered the spirits and they did hound him, just as Grandfather said they would. He realized that the more "civilized" places were quieter, the buildings, lack of nature, and masses of people. So Enoli continued to travel, back to the United States, to the most civilized place he could imagine, New York City.
But the noise of the spirits was replaced by a different type of noise, a spiritual static of racism and greed, growth but also consumption. As exhilarating as New York was, Enoli felt overwhelmed at times. The one place he could find peace was shockingly inside of his people's oppressor's temple, inside of their church.
(maybe this could work? I apologize if I assume to much)

Enoli (Black Fox) Johnson (white provided name) left the reservations of Oklahoma at a young age of 17, traveling south into Mexico with a friend. He worked various jobs both farming or hunting. His skill with tracking caught the eye of the law and he also assisted in tracking bounties.
Won't anyone be Enoli's friend? Maybe he worked for Caduceus already in some capacity and thus met some of the other players?
Ok, so the original two ideas were a little outlandish, but I'm now for sure one of these two:
So far I have two ideas, but not a lot of mechanics yet, so these may be not feasible until I get the rules clear.
Last we saw Gideon Stargrave, Commander in the Galaxy Corps, he was in the dangerous jungles of Venus, tracking an escaped 8th dimension nightmarish abyss spawn. Running through the jungles, his maser in hand, when he leaped into a clearing, which was circled by strange contraptions. Outside of the ring was his arch-nemesis Lord Vatrix, who simply smiled and pressed a button. Then with a flash of light Gideon was in a new jungle, with a strange unknown sky. He was confused by this but more so as to why Lord Vatrix didn't monologue. His communicator, maser, and jet pack don't seem to be working.
Anyone with any literary interest or background will recognize Gideon as the hero in a series of sci-fi/fantasy series written by Richard Stall. There was the recent news that Stall was institutionalized and his recent work was disturbing and unpublishable. But this can't possibly be Gideon Stargrave, right? Is this some delusional fan?
Alternatively, a doctor and scientist who was working with the government during the war to help soldiers fight. He believed there was untapped potential with the electricity in our bodies, so he had built a steampunk style suit that had an exoskeleton around the body, it injected needles into the muscles of the arms, back, and legs, it had a piezoelectric generator and another unknown energy source, to help amplify the person in the suit, make them stronger, faster. He even was able to extend the electric field out in arcs from the suit's gauntlets. But the government denied his innovations, so now he must prove that they work on his own.
Again, not yet sure if these are feasible in the mechanics, but was fun thinking about them.
Thank you so much for accepting me, I appreciate it and look forward to it, it's going to be a blast.
I usually play a "brains" or mad scientist type, but really I'm open to anything at all.
Reviewing the books it seems there can be a higher fantasy option (psychic, magic, etc), or are we meant to be more grounded? How much into the occult can a character be, or is that world unknown for our group? (for now)
I want to thank everyone for agreeing, very kind, and thanks to Deneve as well, I have a surgery Friday, and with that and being behind I feel I wouldn't be putting my 100% into it and don't want the game to suffer/slow down cause of that. But again thanks!
Good luck and have fun storming the castle!
