Ceobarn Zeizerer's face tattoo


General Discussion


Ceobarn Zeizerer is the interface between the Starfinder Society in Starfinder Society adventure 01-06 "A Night in Nightarch". The portrait of this character on page 6 shows him with a face tattoo which is the symbol of the demon lord Socothbenoth. But the adventure makes clear that the demon lord which acts as patron of House Zeizerer is Abraxas. It seems odd that a senior representative of the House would openly sport a tattoo on his cheek of another demon lord. Does anyone have a sensible explanation which I could use if the issue comes up at the table?

-he dabbled in Socothbenoth worship in his youth and keeps it as a reminder to always think of the long term consequences of his actions.

-he got it at a tien tatooing parlor on absolon station and the guy swore up and down it meant Abraxas


None of my tattoos have anything to do with my job, either.

[unofficial]He's part of a fiendpunk movement among younger drow to mark themselves with the symbols of demon lords they don't worship, as a way to thumb their eyes at their opponents and prove they fear nothing."[/unofficial]

[unofficial]He is part of a minor house with a different demonic patron cult that was acquired by Zeizerer as part of a.... hostile takeover.[/unofficial]

[unofficial]He made a high-stakes power play to become a major manager within Zeizerer... and lost. He was marked with that demonic sigil to ensure he'd never rise any higher. Which is why he's a contact between the House and the Starfinder Society.[/unofficial]

Many thanks Mr Stephens, any one of those would work, and that's why we'll miss you so much!! Good luck for the future by the way.

I like that third one best because it fits the situation....and doesn't preclude him from defecting to a house that works for his tattooed demon lord.
