- Convince someone of the nutritional value of potatoes
Angel of Potatoes: Spud can possess, well, potatoes. Not sweet potatoes, either, just potatoes. He can possess up to 20 medium-size potatoes per Force. His Word-Forces count for the purposes of possessing potatoes. Leaving potato hosts in worse shape than when he entered them is still dissonant, although a potato's being eaten does not qualify -- the potato has achieved its Destiny. Spud also receives a bonus to his Will when attempting to possess someone who has eaten any of his potato hosts,
provided that the potato is still in the person's body. He receives a bonus of 1 for every Force's worth of potatoes that has been ingested, with a minimum bonus of 1 point. He may grant this attunement to other angels, but
has never done so.
Spud is an angel in distress, and it's not quite sure how to get out.
For a Kyriotate of Flowers, Spud had a very cushy job; it stayed primarily
in the Farm, helping its immediate superior, Sofiel, the Angel of
Vegetables, discover new ways to make veggies grow. It even had a good
trick: it would possess some potatoes, encourage them to grow, possess
humans who would eat the potatoes, encourage them to, well, grow, repeat
cycle. Spud had no interaction with demons, no memories of the Fall, no
understanding that a War was going on.
Life was good.
Then one day Spud decided to go out for a jaunt. There were, after all,
potatoes being grown all over the world, and there were other angels around
the Farm who would take care of its little potato patch. Besides, it wanted
to know how other potatoes elsewhere got along without its help. So it set
off, criscrossing several continents before getting into trouble.
It was possessing a fairly large potato patch in Buenos Aires when the
unthinkable happened: Haagenti came along. Spud doesn't remember much about
what happened after Haagenti discovered the potatoes, but it's certain of
one thing: right now, ALL of its hosts are in the stomach of a Demon Prince.
Haagenti, being Haagenti, had managed to devour over six hundred good-sized
It won't take any dissonance from the loss of its hosts, but it's in a bad,
bad place right now. Spud doesn't know if Haagenti even digests anything;
it's worried that it's sharing breathing space with two enemy Superiors.
It's not sure what's going to happen if it takes celestial form or returns
to Heaven -- does it take the Demon Prince with him, or does it remain
trapped inside Haagenti? And if the Demon Prince of Gluttony does digest
food, sooner or later it's going to wind up host-less inside Haagenti -- a
quick way to final death.
In the meantime, it's doing the only thing it can think of doing: use the
Celestial Song of Tongues to yell for help. Of course, said help is either
Novalis, who will be a tad too busy to go herself (but she'll send some PCs
to go see what the problem is) or the PCs themselves, whom Spud remembers
from previous meetings.
Haagenti, for his part, isn't very happy; he's feeling rather logy (Spud's
Seraph of Flowers attunement at work) and every so often, he feels a
disturbance in the Symphony. Unfortunately, he can't place where it's
coming from...and he's beginning to get a bellyache. Maybe eating all those
potatoes wasn't good for him after all...
