The Navigator is a broken Hour of the Fourth Fansus. Created by Terrence.

Description

History

The Navigator was once of the King’s house. All know that he was the one that directed the movement of their Mansus. All know that it was her mistake that caused the collision. All know that this story cannot be verified.

Appearance

The Navigator is fragmented and unclear. Sometimes he is a wise and formal man. Sometimes she is a vicious and reckless waif. Always their finery is cracked and broken.

Principles

In Heart, the Navigator refuses to give up trying to remedy their mistake. In Forge, they have the means to restore what is broken. In Lantern they illuminate the way back, though one could accuse this to be one of Moth's madnesses.

Worship

Cult

The Navigator grants their favour to those who wish to redeem themselves, and fix past mistakes. Regretful criminals and penitents ask her for counsel and him for perseverance and them for the assurance that there’s a way out.

More tangentially, the Navigator's aspect of wayfinding remains strong enough to be invoked by guides and, indeed, navigators in the waking world. Though the paths once known as safe have been made perilous by the upheaval of the Collision.

Mark

  1. Temptation: Restoration: I've begun to see all the ways in which the world is broken.
  2. Dedication: Restoration: I shall dedicate myself to the restoration of the world that once was.
  3. Ascension: Restoration: I have begun dreaming of memories of a life I never had. The life of my counterpart in the before-world's mirror. I know this to be the third mark.
  4. Ascension: Restoration: My mind is aglow with ideas, plans to improve things. Whenever I try to write them down they escape me. But I know with all my being they would work if only I could convince people to follow them. I know this to be the fourth mark.
  5. Ascension: Restoration: My plans are already written, just not by my hand. I have begun to see that I was always a part of the plan. And now I must give heavily of myself to play my part.
  6. Ascension: Phrase: Every moment seems to take forever. The air is heavy with anticipation for what is coming. There is still an apprehension left before I shatter myself and remake myself anew. I know this to be the sixth mark.
  7. Ending: I have shattered myself against the moment that recalls the Collision. I have seen all there is and all there can be. Sometimes, my mind is lucid and whole enough to act on that knowledge. I will not cease. Not for as long as I have yet to play my part in the plan.

The Mansus

The Observatory Ruins

It shows in torn maps and shattered planetariums how the world used to be. Sometimes, the Glory's light shines upon it in its shattered cradle outside the walls of the King's castle. Sometimes, The Navigator speaks of his plan to restore the world to visitors.

The Histories

The Navigator was once one of the foremost Hours in the Mansus of the King. They directed its movements, kept it in harmony with the house of the Wyrms. What happened to change that was forgotten in the event that followed, but many, including the Navigator, agree they played a central part in it.

Learn of the Navigator's Plans
This writing is meant to be read under a high noon sun. Shadows and moonlight bring forth lies meant to misdirect those that would sabotage the plan.
It all makes sense. You know what to do. When and where. You were meant to find this. And you know your place in it now.

Rites

  • Memory of the Collision
    • The Collision was a catastrophe that reshaped the world; it was also an event with enormous power. This rite might capture a sliver of that power, though perhaps the costs might be too great, still.
    • Requires: A map, a catalyst, a victim and a tool, to break at exactly the wrong time and spark the others.
