Mel Tadros - Born Scion of Sobek - The Slow Temper

Scions of the Second Refinement



Background: Mel's worked out at the alligator farm for years, since they were a child. Sometime back, a monster had appeared outside of town though few people know about it because it was defeated so very quickly. Mel's mother, Layla Tadros, tells how her husband had been killed by it, a monster thing like a panther formed of the mud of the bog. She had gone out to kill it armed with fire to dry it out and explosives to blow it apart, and firearms for if things got desperate. She gave a good fight but would likely have been the second victim if a protective but brutal man hadn't appeared to tear the monster apart. Over the next few months, he appeared with some regularity and eventually Mel was conceived and born.

Description:  It is hard to get a fix on what Mel looks like. Some people describe him as a bro's bro. Others describe her as a sort of redneck princess. They have dark skin which some people describe as luxuriantly smooth and others as rugged and tough. They generally have a ready smile and a good-natured twinkle in the blue eyes they inherited from their mother. Very few have seen their anger, but those that have say that it is strong.


Divine Patron: Sobek

Origin Level

Primary Path: Role Path: The Lover and Friend Everyone Needs - Empathy, Persuasion, Integrity
Contact: David and Wilma Hallock, Friends Mel set up with each other
Connections: Friends, former lovers
Access: Homes and businesses of friends and lovers

Mel Tadros has a bit of a reputation for being a charming person. Less charitable terms have been used to describe them though one of the things that stymies a lot of people is that many people are still a bit confused about whether it's Melvin or Melody. Some people are convinced that there are two Mels, a brother and sister with very similar attitudes. In most cases, this weirdness would set people off in small town America, but Mel has been a surprisingly popular lover as well as a good friend in different ways to lots of people. And their lovers and friends are no less confused as to Mel's sex but mostly just don't think about it unless someone specifically brings up the subject. As far as they know, Mel has never lured anybody into cheating on someone, but they have had relationships that weren't approved of by friends and family of their lover.

Secondary Path: Origin Path: Raised on the Alligator Farm - Survival, Academics, Athletics
Contact: Layla Tadros-Wolsun, Mother, Alligator Farmer
Connections: Farm hands, swamp people
Access: The Wolsun Alligator Farm and family land

Mel has been helping out dealing with the alligator farm for as long as they can remember. They've put up fences, dealt with the gators, dealt with customers and tourists, and purchased food and supplies. Most of the town also forgets that they went off for a few years at a university and came back with a master's degree. Not that Mel talks about it much really.

Tertiary Path: Pantheon Path: Sobek's Backwoods Child - Academics, Occult, Close Combat
Contact: Hekaib Lesley, Priest of Sobek
Connections: Cult of Sobek worshippers that exists mostly within those who farm or deal with various crocodilians around the world.
Access: The cult facilities.

The alligator farm is regularly visited by a priest of Sobek who has suspicions about Mel's heritage. He originally came by to bless the farm after having originally been requested by Layla's husband. Seeing Mel and watching them grow up has made him quite suspicious. Especially given how Mel seems to embody a lot of Sobek's promiscuous nature.
