Demon of Conspiracy Theories: Please note that the Word is "Conspiracy Theories", not "Conspiracies". Reivtip's genius is for confusing those who quest for the Truth: on a successful Perception roll he can determine which conspiracy theory will most appeal to a particular human. From there, it's merely a matter of proper packaging.

Rites: Create a new conspiracy theory.

Considering the number of mutually contradictory stories surrounding Reitvip, others are surprised that the demon is not a Balseraph. Assuming, of course, that he secretly isn't one - or else a Habbalite, or perhaps a shell for Alaemon himself (or some other Prince, or maybe even someone from the Other Side)...

Whoever - or whatever - he is, Reitvip is certainly a player. His particular methodology of combating Revelations seems a bit odd, for Servitors of Secrets: instead of denying others access to the Truth, he shoves it down their collective throats. Unfortunately, he usually first makes sure that said Truth is first chopped up and mixed with a liberal helping of lies, half-truths, wild surmises, misunderstandings and complete irrelevancies. It seems to work out about the same, in the end.

The reason why he's a danger beyond his ostensible power level is because Reitvip is so damned good at his job. The Impudite can take three unrelated facts, two false analogies and one reducto ad absurdium and turn the whole thing into a frighteningly plausible theory - and he never, ever stops. He knows all the right places to plant his malignant seeds, too. Forget the Internet: Reitvip does his best work among people too paranoid to go online. Not that the Impudite disdains modern computer culture... but he was a force before it arose, and he fully intends to remain a force after it goes away.

As for his personality... well, it's about what you expect from an entity that finds spreading confusion and doubt to be as easy as breathing, and a good deal more fun. The Impudite would make a wonderful Servitor of Factions (presuming that he really isn't one, of course), as he combines a twisted enjoyment of obfuscation for its own sake with a complete inability to accept that anyone else out there really matters. He's also a vindictive son of a bitch: those who cross him seem to have an uncanny tendency to show up later in various Game investigations as hidden co-conspirators of one nefarious plot or another. Reitvip still has quite enough enemies out there to justify a galloping case of paranoia - not that he does, of course.

To him, paranoia is something that happens to other people.
