About Jericho Korben

Name:Jericho Seinman Korben
Template: Focused Practitioner
Musts: Channeling or Ritual
High Concept: Ferromancer TA
Trouble: Stop Trying to Keep us Down!

Displaced Person:
Jericho has never really managed to fit in. The result of an 'indiscretion' by his mother (high profile american businesswoman Claire Korben) and an unknown father, Korben avoided notice when he could. His stepfather (equally high profile businessman Joshua Korben) didn't want a reminder of his wife's affair (it bothered him not a bit that his wife was unfaithful, just that she had been careless enough to have a child) and his mother simply never having time, (Maybe further reason?) Korben was raised more by books than anything else. He's never been much for people as a result, most of his early interactions coming from the hired help who homeschooled him and the other staff, who were far too proper to interact with the Korben's boy.

Phase Aspect:Just Ignore Me

The Gauntlet:
Whenever he turned 17, Korben found something on one of his frequent raids into his mothers cabinet for money. A package, addressed to him, dated two years before. It was heavy, and when Korben took it, his excitement soared. What would his mother have wanted to hide from him so much? Why would she never give him this? Upon opening the package, the boy was initially disappointed to only find a small steel arm guard. It looked old fashioned, but upon further examination was clearly worked with modern tools, even if it did have some old language on the edges of it. When Korben reached in to pick it up, he found a note underneath. It read only 'I know you had a child. It must be around the age that he'll be noticing the changes. Give him this. It will help.' and was signed -RP. Korben was elated. He wasn't insane. The things he could do with metal, the way he felt it's soul, it wasn't all him going crazy. He has kept the gauntlet since, using the Kuman symbols as a guide. He has found that the purity of the gauntlet has made it easier to work with than regular metal.

Phase Aspect:My Father's Gauntlet

The Most Dangerous Game:
When he's cut off from his father's protection for the first time, Korben evades the Wardens of the White Council. But how can he succeed when other people keep turning up dead with slivers of metal through them and the killer's calling card: a chess King, left at each scene?

Phase Aspect:WANTED: Dead or Alive

Stranger in A Strange Land:
When Jericho becomes lost in the Fae Realms while running from the law, can he manage to make it to a safe haven while avoiding encounters with tricky Fae, ravenous Demons and the Erlking's Dark Hunt? With his new companion, a Draconic Scion named Rill, to help, Jericho manages to escape, finding himself lost deep inside York, miles from his home and any companion he knows.

Phase Aspect:Friendless and Forgotten.

Bleak House:
When he's lost and stranded in a strange city, Korben stumbles across Aximaues, a greek demigod, and his quest to quiet some angry ghouls. But can they succeed when it appears that one of the ghouls is a spellcaster more powerful than any Jericho has seen before?
