The Sunken Mother, The Thing in the River

Type: Spirit

Background: The Thing in the River is one of the United Kingdom’s river-hags, the patron of the life-demanding rivers of much of southern England. Powerful and malevolent, she wants to flood her banks, needs to flood her banks, but can be stayed with sacrifices of blood and death. She is a wretched, primeval entity. When manifested, her flesh is a sickly green and slick like a toad’s belly, and her teeth are jagged splinters of bone smeared with algae. Perhaps most unsettling are the spirit’s eyes, which quiver in their sockets like gelatinous clusters of salmon eggs.

This hag dwells in the rivers and waterways of southern England: the headstreams of the Thames, the Avon and the tributaries of each. She is a moody thing, fluctuating from periods of morbid giddiness to times of tempestuous anger. She enjoys the company of the Mara, accepting their worship and their sacrifices in exchange for her patronage, though she has no stake in their games of power and politics. When called upon, she is able to give great gifts and provide many secrets, but only at a cost. The pain or death of children is all that sates her.


The Invisible Members of the Suicide Circle of Pall Mall


Gilbert Ward
The First Member of the Suicide Circle

Type: Ghost
Born: 1884
Died: 1929/1930

Virtue: Adventurous
Vice: Corrupt

Background: Gilbert Ward was a British lawyer who spent some time in San Francisco towards the dawn of the 20th century. While there, he became familiar with the megapolisomantic practices of Thibaut de Castries. He hanged himself in a sacrificial ritual in the liminal moment between 1929 and 1930, and in so doing, founded the Suicide Circle.

Its hands were its most human part, with long and delicate fingers that bore a single signet ring, with a gear upon it, covered in black gloves. There was no skin visible, really, anywhere on the ghost. It's lower body trailed away into wisps of smoke and mist, but it had wings, or perhaps they were tentacles shaped as wings, a great mass of cables and wires, linked together by a slender steel mesh. The tips were composed of sharp scalpels and tiny needles, of crushing gears and spent bullet casings.

It had no head. The body had been beheaded, and in the stump the two Kindred could see a multitude of clanking gears and pistons, all stained with bloody oil.

So have I been called, and so have I come. What is your will, necromancer? The voice sounded in the vampires' minds, a lazy, casual sort of voice, concealing a boundless confidence and an infinite malice within it. Make it quick.
