Attunements: Shedite of Hardcore, Overdrive, Captain of the Mosh Pit

Innocence used to say (back when it worked for Nybbas) that it didn't consider itself to be bad, per se: just committed to giving humans what they really wanted. Not superficial junk like money or power or fame - what humanity really and truly desires is an excuse to do whatever it is that they feel like doing, deep down in the darker corners of their souls. Being ridden by a Shedite's a great excuse, so from Innocence's point of view everybody one. The Shedite doesn't say that anymore, though. After it joined up with Furfur, Innocence has learned to accept that it is, indeed, bad.

But being bad is good.

It's amazing how switching Superiors can change a demon's reputation: in an instant Innocence went from screw-up to valued Servitor. Indeed, the Shedite is rapidly going up the ladder of rank: it's on the short list for Words, once the current political situation has been sorted out. Furfur is always ready to reward those ready to go out and push things until they bleed - something that Innocence is always happy to do. It's not like it has to stick around for the aftermath, after all.

Currently, Innocence likes to promote Hardcore in the more inappropriate venues. Starting riots at thrash concerts or opera performances is just too Damned easy to be interesting: real artistry is when you do it at ballet recitals, or Little League games, or anything else that the whitebreads like to do. Sure, its colleagues find this a little odd, but the Shedite points out that Hardcore is everywhere - so if it isn't obviously present at a particular venue, then it damn well should be. Innocence has never been in a crowd where there wasn't a well-repressed urge to cut loose and take down something: it's happy to bring those urges right up to the surface and set them free.

For the most part, Innocence's former gig as a Nybbite isn't too obvious (Nybbas stripped it of its Media Attunements, not that it had many to begin with). However, there are a few clues. First off, if given a choice Innocence will always try to possess the prettiest human available: it has a fondness for female hosts, preferably those who normally act in a restrained (or even repressed) manner. Once it has a mount, the Shedite will invariably follow the famous Media dictate about living fast: actually killing the buggers isn't considered smart, but Innocence is quite clever at driving its hosts to all sorts of edges in record time.

About the only thing that can be said for the Shedite is that it doesn't usually stick around for long: like its former Prince, Innocence is easily bored. There's always another human to run around in, and one of the nice things about being in a riot is that it's really, really easy to make bodily contact with someone. God help the poor bugger that actually comes home from the event with the Shedite in tow, however: this 'easily bored' thing is very much a two edged sword...
