Played by Ares

As a huge fan of Noir and Urban Fantasy, City of Mist is right up my alley. And being able to use the real-world city of Phnom Penh for Mekong Delta Blues has been an absolute treat. Serving up cool villains, and dynamic double-crosses is all the more satisfying when my players have such a great time being co-storytellers.

Hikari Lawry

Played by Kira858

Hikari had a lot of pressure on his shoulder. Born to Omar Lawry, CEO of Mal Tech, and Rie Tachibana , CEO of Mizuki Electric Technologies, Hikari was groomed to be the next tech icon. But he wasn’t happy, his parents never around, his enjoyment resided less on the drive of success and more on the enjoyment of the new Halo video game. This sparked a stage of depression, and with no light in sight, things looked dire for Hikari, until Gunilla came….

Cynthia Abaya

Played by Glaiza

Long story short, Cynthia Abaya can be described with two words: broke and tired. Longer story is that she’s a Filipina American that ran away from home because of student loans - and she’s working off that debt by penny pinching in Cambodia as a bartender. It seems though that no matter how hard she works - she is unable to leave Phnom Penh. Could it be because there’s just not enough money to go around - or is the cause something more supernatural, like the fact that there’s Mayari, the Filipina Goddess of war and the moon, inside her aching to break out and rule?

played by Dominic Donahue

Dez was from the mountains of Maine. He spent his early life in the military, and became a mercenary shortly after. Dez had been a lot of places. He had fought a lot of battles. He had broke a lot of noses. This changed when his son was born. Bub, as he affectionately called him, changed everything about Dez's life. Both when he was born, and also when he died. He had been working in Phnom Penh as a bouncer and overall tough guy, simultaneously raising Bub. However, things got a bit odd as powers began emerging in Dez. The powers of Abaddon, the archangel of the abyss. A strange door began to manifest just on the edges of his perception. More and more Dez was able to access this door, but more and more of himself was lost in its perception. This lost time would result in a lack of attention, and, tragically, Bub's death. The consequences wore on Dez, and he rejected his awakening powers. He rejected the summons of Abaddon. This was until a gate opened in Phnom Penh, releasing a stream of restless and scattered souls. In exchange for taking up the role as the gatekeeper, and accepting his manifesting powers, and the subsequent responsibilities, he was provided a gift. The hellhound gifted to him by his abilities served as a conduit for Bub's essence to manifest, possibly even fuse. A lot of questions remained about exactly what was happening, but they were questions that Dez was not pressed to answer. He had his Bub back, and he would accept this gift in whatever form it took. Thus, Dez became the warden of the place all the most dangerous and destructive forces resided. But more accurately, he became the proud parent of an all-consuming hell hound whose voracity in devouring the most evil and tained things the universe had to offer was only equaled by just how innocently and playfully he did so.
