Dean Wyatt

This is yet another tabletop rpg character that I’ve created for a relatively new campaign.  Our characters have been flung into the past to avert an apocalypse that our characters died in.  So we play modern characters in a fantasy setting.

Dean Wyatt grew up like any other boy in the United States.  He went to school and hated it, he played video games, watched television and played outside when his parents decided he had done the first two too much.  Baseball was the neighborhood game and so that’s what Dean was stuck with.  It wasn’t so bad.  In fact, it was pretty fun most of the time.  His dad, Harrison, was the owner and sole detective of Diamond Investigations.  His mom, Quinn, was the company secretary.  All that meant was that the food and shelter was provided by snapping pictures of infidelity, finding missing persons and other minor feats of investigation.  It wasn’t Sam Spade or anything but it was a living.

When Dean dropped out of college, his father was quick to take him into the business while Dean went the community college route.  During this time, Dean learned everything he could from his father mostly by driving his dad around on the job.  When he graduated from community college, he quit the business even though his dad was sure Dean had a knack for the job.  After months of striking out on his own, tragedy struck when Dean’s mother called.  Dad’s body had been found in an alleyway beaten to death.

Dean felt guilty for leaving the business and abandoning his family.  He took control of Diamond Investigations and picked up the caseload with a vengeance.  He started to spend all of his time out in the field.  He couldn’t really sleep well anyway and when he did, he often dreamed of conversations with his father.  Eventually he started to see his father everywhere he went during waking hours.  He started to doubt that his father had ever died as he desperately embraced the belief in his father’s mysterious survival.  This belief was reinforced by discovering that magic is real and the belief that his father is tied up in this whole business with the Unconquered sun.

Now he travels with the other Solar Exalted under the dubious leadership of Tina.  So far things seem to be going alright even though the group has been caught out of their element numerous times.  He hopes that completing the mission for the Unconquered Sun will reunite him with his family.
