The Loom is the true identity of the Mechanism. It was once the prized tool of the Weave. A living object, it was treated much like a younger brother by the old Hour. Now that the Weave has been slain, the Loom has concocted a scheme to bring justice to her murderers. It has very little other plans, though it would most likely replace the Weft and Warp's position and act benevolently.

Description

History

The Loom was the most sacred artifact of the histories. Used by the Weave herself to ease the creation and purge of timelines, the tool held great power and a mind of its own. Once the Weave died, the Weft and the Warp spent some time studying the Loom as well as the Weave's most secreted teachings. It is a pity then that they never found out that the Loom was sentient, though by the time they had their hands on it, it wasn't.

Thanks to its own temporal powers, The Loom managed to gather a following through the histories which merged into the Big Brain Troupe, which purposefully did their best to appear as silly and misguided as possible. The Loom, a rather powerful Name at the moment, descended its consciousness into the mortal world and was maintained by the Troupe's leader. When the troupe forcefully ascended the satellite, the Loom's consciousness was placed within - making the two ascend to hourhood as one entity. The leader of the Troupe also ascended with the satellite, though he became a Name. Now, the Loom dwells in this new shell and waits for the right moment to exact revenge.

Appearance

The Loom is bound to its satellite shell, but may alter its shape to form what is essentially a mecha. If the satellite ever falls, the Loom will be forced to find a new shell or seek reincarnation before its essence fades away.

Principles

Justice is the Loom's primary ideal and motivation. It is also a patron of revenge, inspired by more personal pursuits. It's especially fond of creative and indirect ways to accomplish the enactment of either.

Worship

Cult

The loom is secretly worshiped to this day by the Big Brain Troupe, who use their childish appearance to spy on other cults.

Mark

The Loom has no marks. It is currently not in a position to influence or benefit mortals in any way other than being called upon for scrying rituals.

It's time for revenge.
