Favorite Dream: Seeing his grandmother Jean after she died. Jean said she came back to give him a special present from beyond: a box of crayons with colors that are not on the visible spectrum. Lex colored for a while, even though he couldn’t see what he was putting on the page. He gave the drawing to his grandmother to take with her. Least Favorite Dream: Watching his twin sister rearrange her facial features, looking less like herself, less like him. She shoved Lex aside when he tried to stop her. When she was unrecognizable she laughed at her brother and stepped outside, disappearing forever into the crowd. Hiding Space: In the closet in his bedroom, behind the clothes. He keeps a child-sized laboratory there. [caption id="attachment_284" align="alignnone" width="650"] Lex trying his best to outrun fate. Childish.[/caption]    ACCESS NARRATIVE ›

Lex’s Dangerous Scientific Acumen

Lex’s Dangerous Scientific Acumen

Last modified by Charter Agent S0J
We decided to keep Lex under constant surveillance when he wasn’t at home. We placed him in Mrs. Marshawn’s 2nd grade classroom and gave her instructions to observe Lex and, if she had the opportunity, break him. Marshawn has been a Charter operative for many years, but she’s past her prime. The following are her notes describing her lackluster attempt to “reform” Lex after he was caught making paper airplanes in class. Out of her pathetic desire to feel as though she were in control, she did the unthinkable by giving these notes to Lex’s parents. They threatened to sue the district unless Lex was placed in a different classroom. We “retired” Mrs. Marshawn shortly after. Her notes describe Lex’s uncanny ability for engineering. *(Administrator note: Where is Mrs. Marshawn now? Most Charter operatives are retired to the robot pits, but I can’t find any trace of her there). In spite of Mrs. Marshawn's efforts Lex went on to achieve greater feats of invention. Lex’s scientific pursuits took on a darker and more esoteric tone the older he became. This was recorded by our spy in the Selig/Pastore household. Lex may have been experimenting on a small animal. (Audio Clip) Lex: So this says (he rustles some papers) I can blend them - that I can blend the bodies of them. The mouse and the machine and, the two of them just one thing, one great thing that I made and, still squeaks and sleeps, but runs on steam and the electricity produced by a living being - this is an awesome thing and, all my own. (there are the sounds of an electric current, bug zapper-like) Life is made - no book says otherwise - whether it’s clay pummeled into shape by a gods’ hands or through evolution or, better yet, like this - by me, through my experiments - and, (laughs) what could I fail in? - Nothing. See, he breathes and moves and is the same, but better than the same, he’s more than he was before. Though, when sleeping, does he dream and, if so, of what? Of mouse things or, machine things? And if he gets too hot, what then? Too cold, then what? Well, life is a made thing, a testing out what works - so we’ll see how he goes into spring and summer and the rest - if he freezes in winter or runs better - well that’s where the making is, the clay in my hand - nothing’s perfect, but I will make a better thing. I’ll make something new, cooler than anything and, totally different.    ACCESS NARRATIVE ›

Lex Pastore: Troubled Genius

Lex Pastore: Troubled Genius

Last modified by Charter Agent V5Q
[caption id="attachment_277" align="alignnone" width="300"] Lex's typical thousand-yard stare.[/caption] Bloodline Abilities: Like his grandfather, Lex has an innate sense of engineering. Alarmingly, he also has the same interest in esoteric science, in creating machines that can interact with the spirits of living things. He’s developing rapidly and should be considered our highest priority in the Selig household. Motivating Fear: The realization that he and his twin sister Morgan are going to get older and separate. Over time they will resemble each other less and less. One of them could die. One of them (he fears that it will be Morgan) will become bored or fed up with the other twin and leave. These fears are rooted in the death of his grandmother Jean and the rocky relationship between his mother Piper and her twin brother Lucius. In addition to that, Lex and Morgan had a traumatic experience together when they got lost in the woods behind their home. They found the body of a long-dead deer. Later that night, after their parents had found them, the twins had a conversation over text messages. When Lex references “Nimsesku,” he is speaking about the family hamster, which cannot die. Lex: … Nimsesku, he’s who we’re like. we won’t end up like a dumb dead deer. That’s for dumb animals that can’t look out for themselves. Morgan: Why do you think that. I don’t think that. We die. L: Things die. Not us, we’re smarter than that, I think. M: You’re dumb, and not like an animal. They’re smart, that dumb dead deer isn’t dumb, it’s smarter than you who thinks he’ll live forever. Idiot. L: STFU. Baby. Get smart. We are else. We are different. We're Nimsesku to the max. M: u stfu. You’re dumb and silly and dangerous. STFU u! L: Listen, we can beat it. Death. And we will. We are no deer.  ACCESS NARRATIVE ›

Lex Pastore: His Family

Lex Pastore: His Family

Last modified by Charter Agent BSR
Emerson Selig (Grandfather): Lex shares his grandfather’s aptitude for science and engineering. Emerson, for his own reasons, refuses to encourage Lex in his scientific pursuits, but Lex is picking up where Emerson left off. He’s continuing Emerson’s work in esoteric science, specifically in retrieving the soul after the body has died. Jean Selig (Grandmother)(Deceased): Jean's death was a formative moment for Lex. Jean and Lex were very close. Her death had implications beyond herself. Lex realized that what happened to Jean would eventually happen to everyone he knows, including his sister. He seeks to prevent this with his research. Piper Pastore (Mother): Piper has always been protective of her son, but we notice that she’s been more watchful of him lately. Sensors show that her heart rate increases when she’s near Lex and her body tenses up, as though she’s afraid someone could snatch him away at any moment. What does she know? Nicolae Pastore (Father): Unlike Lex’s grandfather, Nicolae tells Lex and Morgan everything about his experiments with sound, and how sound can change the Universe. He awakens in the twins a sense of awe. Nicolae has a knack for stumbling into incredible discoveries, such as the mastodon skeleton he and his children found while walking along (of all places) a beach in Mendocino, California. Lucius Selig (Uncle): Evidence collected from the house shows that Lex and his uncle have been growing closer since Lucius moved back home. Lucius senses that his nephew has highly-developed Bloodline abilities. He may be planning to use Lex for his own gain. Lucius is clever and he knows how to avoid detection by the Charter. This relationship is very dangerous. Morgan Pastore (Twin Sister): The twins in the Selig line often are binary systems, two parts of a single personality. This has never been truer than it is of Lex and Morgan. His sister, an empath in every sense of the word, is the opposite of her aloof, analytical brother. She tempers many of her brother’s darker pursuits, such as his scientific experiments on the pet hamster they share. Lex fears losing his sister through the slow decay of time, but our projections suggest that personal differences between the twins may split them apart sooner. We’ve seen this happen before with Piper and her twin brother Lucius.  ACCESS NARRATIVE ›

Biography: Lex Pastore

Biography: Lex Pastore

It’s impossible to discuss Lex without including his twin sister, Morgan. The two aren’t individuals as much as they are parts of a binary system. One of our agents observed that when we see Morgan and Lex talking, we’re watching the internal monologue of one entity. The relationship between the two halves used to be balanced, but that is starting to change. Morgan is able to let go of that, but Lex cannot. He was unable to articulate this fear until the death of his grandmother, Jean. That death drew Lex’s fear into the open, causing him to obsess over the eventual day when time would split the twins apart and he would be alone, something he has never experienced. [caption id="attachment_281" align="alignnone" width="300"] Lex and Lucius may have found common cause. This would be a nightmare scenario for us.[/caption] Lex shares his family’s aptitude for science and engineering. It’s as though everyone from the Selig line is fated to pursue esoteric sciences. Lex’s fear gives him the motive to carry on the work of his grandfather, Emerson Selig, although Emerson would never speak about such things with Lex. Lex’s intelligence comes at the expense of ethics. Lex conducts experiments on the family hamster, Nimsesku. Lex knows that the hamster cannot die and, seeing the answer to his fear about losing his sister, he decided to test the limits of Nimsesku’s ability to resurrect. The experiments are crude; some may call them grotesque. But as Lex continues his work he learns more about the nature of Nimsesku’s resurrections. This is troubling because we’ve been using the hamster as a spy within the Selig/Pastore household for several decades. Lex will be incredibly dangerous in a few years. He’s barely kept in check by his family. The only reason he shows any restraint whatsoever is because he is tempered by his twin sister Morgan. Lucius presents another problem. He knows that Lex is pursuing his grandfather's research into esoteric science, the same research that gave Lucius his ability to astral project. It's possible that he's feeding his nephew information in the hope that Lex will be able to restore his power. Our agents have been running scenarios based on Lex’s continued existence and most end in disaster. Piper and Nicolae sometimes wonder whether there is something wrong with their son, noticing his apparent lack of empathy. We have a contact at Lex’s school, Ms. Ratched, the school nurse. When prompted she will recommend to Lex’s parents that he be placed in a treatment facility. Her office telephone number is on file.  ACCESS NARRATIVE ›
