Abilities: Academics, Arts, Medicine, Science
Sarah is a little crazy, and always drunk or stoned – not that you can tell. Despite her attitude and appearance, Sara is actually a M.D. (Something she is vaguely proud of.) However, that pride is dwarfed by her pride in her underground music legend.
She is friends with Kate; mostly so she can brag about the fact that she befriended the wolf girl. The ‘friendship’ was mostly Sarah tricking Kate into doing things. She was in a relationship with Toni during ‘the Zday thing.’ She made friends with Evander, and was part of the big shinding that killed Rache.
She ascended with her band, but she found that all that glitters in heaven isn’t gold. She returned to the mortal plane after hearing all the suffering of mortals in the throes of addiction. She is mostly a travelling doctor, though thanks to her youthful look its hard for anyone to take her seriously.
The Dodekatheon needed someone to ensure the Maenads don’t go crazy and rip everyone apart – and assigned her the task (which has her basically travelling from one drunken party to the next collecting what Maenads she can and curing other, mortal women when possible before moving on.)
Sarah, the Professor, and Atlantis
Professor Qa’zar (not his real name, but a funny story…) has found THE LONG LOST CITY ATLANTIS! AGAIN!
Okay so maybe the first four hundred times turned out to be a whale orgy, but THIS TIME HE HAS TO BE RIGHT! Well, tenure at the university of Rhode Island is up and he needs this – not only for his name to ring gloriously out across the world of academia, also because, well… He needs the money. He owes a loan shark for debts, his rabbit racing fees are up.
Unfortunately no one is going to give him anything, first 250 times shame on me, fool me 150 times more, shame on you. Luckily, he bumped into the wrong person at a sorority party and came to the attention of the wandering goddess of the Maenads, Keeper of the Addict’s Last Words and Bearer of the Silent Pain that Leads to Addiction and Self-Destruction, Sarah: and his wild tales of ‘finding Atlantis’ caught the goddess’ attention.
See Atlantis is a myth, its made up, like the Gods. It never existed but you ask a Mystery God they look at you funny then start talking about something else. Most of the time, other gods just move on – there is no proof and records of the time that it was supposed to exist are kind of blank about it. Which is weird. Even Thoth (likely the most anal about keeping record or making really dry epic entries) has nothing. Absolutely nothing on Atlantis: not even that mortals starting talking about it. Which given Thoth’s big book that contains life, the universe and all manner of things that could be the question that is the answer 42, rather strange.
Sarah thinks its strange. It might be nothing, or it could be something else. The gods are losing the war and everyone is too noble to admit it. One of the reason Sarah isn’t fighting the war is that she instead spends her time on the mortal plane easing the pain of those that can’t be saved because either the gods are neglecting morals or they are mere collateral damage in a war they will never know is even being waged.
Sarah is lonely too. Her friends are either dead, missing or fighting the war in their own terms. Evander’s hill is a death mound to any would-be king. Yuri chases shadows for his missing sister. Kate vanished into the night hunting something, and no one knows if she is still alive. Walla Walla never made it to the land of gods, so his fate is unknown. Clay Dent is lost in time. Only recently has it become known that Lucas was murdered when Korea was united.
So an adventure quest sounds like a good idea. Only she can’t leave her duties, too many to help and too little time help them. Instead, she decides she could organize the quest.
So when Sarah showed at the gate of Olympus, her Pappi welcomed her and listened and then helped. Together, they piece together the missing pieces of the puzzles, get other gods involved, and soon everyone is wondering why Atlantis is a rumor and a punch line for mortals but not for the gods. Many of the gods think it’s the secret piece of the Titans’ war machine. Others believe it is a repository of hidden knowledge, yet others it is a secret weapon they built and swore to forget about till the terrible day they used it, others that it is a myth and others that the gods together destroyed it so completely for some reason so they would never have to talk about it ever again. What ever the case; the Gods need to find Atlantis.
They need to do so quietly, so the titan forces don’t notice. The best option for that is a group of Scions just awakened and ready to be played in the Great Game. After all, the pieces that move are the only pieces worth anything.
With great determination, they mobilized this new band… And have watched, aghast, ever since.
