Hanyr Panagos is a mysterious old Greek man who lives in Chicago. Or possibly New York City. Some even say Los Angeles. He looks to be around the age of 80 and walks with a pronounced limp, favoring his right leg. He wears a nice 50's era suit and derby hat covering his sparse grey hair. He smells like old people.
Hanyr is at least in the early stages of senility. His moods sometimes change dramatically in short periods of time. He rarely is vicious or mean, but often his mind seems to wander. Even his speech patterns change. He is extremely good at changing his accent in any language he speaks, and can mimic any accent or language he hears.
Hanyr claims to have served with the Allies in World War II, though he never goes into much detail. He has mentioned the Battle of the Bulge and the Eagle's Nest on several occasions. He also mentions Iwo Jima and Pearl Harbor, though, so he could just be making things up.
Powers: Telepathy- Hanyr is able to communicate over extreme distances with, apparently, anyone of his choosing. His voice sounds like Lee Marvin in their head. Teleport- Hanyr either has a lot of frequent flier miles, or he can teleport. He seems to be able to appear anywhere he needs to contact someone. Mimicry- Hanyr can change his voice with surprising range and mimics accents and voice patterns. He is fluent in any language he hears.
Timothy ‘Yardarm’ MacGillicutty
Yardarm is a short man full of tall tales.
He was born on the sea while his mother battled a sea monster, he was born in the sewers and raised by a pack of wild lizard people, he was born in a department store during a linen sale. Which of these is true, are any of them? It’s impossible to tell because for Yardarm the past is a fluid and malleable thing.
Sadly this means that none of our heroes know exactly how Yardarm came to be employed by Hanyr. He claims he won The Parthenon from Hanyr in a card game though how one beats a telepath at cards is questionable. He claims they fought together in the war. He claims he saved Hanyr’s life on seven different occasions. Sometimes he claims that all of these things happened at the same time.
He’s told so many tales over the years that it’s hard to know if even he remembers what’s true and what isn’t anymore. This makes The Parthenon his best possible home. His fantastical tales keep the rubes coming back which keeps the casino in business and The Greek Gods in utility payments.
When he’s not presenting the team with some mission or another he’s walking the floor, chatting up the guests and styling his lavish facial hair into some new and wondrous configuration.
Some have speculated whether Yardarm himself has powers, though what they would be, outside of rapidly changing facial hair is anyone’s guess. On this topic alone he has always remained silent.
