Behaviour: Generally, you will find Jonas reading a book, praying to a spirit or sipping a Haitian beverage. He is not one to party, or go out for social outings. For everytime a party happens, he would go to a certain part of the umbra that probably needed some form of assistance, and help them to the best of his ability, if he could do that. That is the kind of person he is. Paragim
: Creation is Innately Divine and Alive.
Spoiler for Explanation:
The world, perhaps even the universe, is a living entity. That entity is either part of Divinity or else is Divinity itself. Gods and monsters exist, as do pain, horror, and death; thatís cool, though, because in the end good things come from all the suffering. Death sustains life, life gives way to death, and the whole thing is a cycle that perpetrates itself in an ultimately beneficial way. Magick flows from an understanding of that cycle and your place in it as an agent of change. Everything, perhaps, has the potential of magick, but most beings never realize it. Best recognized as a common perspective among Verbena, Dreamspeakers, Euthanatoi, Ecstatics, and other grimly affirmative mages, this model stresses pragmatic acceptance mixed with wild joy. Certain takes on Kabbalism gravitate in this direction too, with Creation as the infinite embodiment of ineffable God. Minus the god part, this paradigm has a scientific analog in the Gaia hypothesis, which insists that Earth is a living, vaguely sentient biomass. Certain Progenitors embrace this idea, especially in the 21st century, when that
biomass appears to be fighting its human infection. Unlike the Gods and Monsters paradigm, this belief system essentially says that there is a point to the madness if you look at the Big Picture and accept that what we perceive as pain and horror are merely ripples across a larger spectrum of life.

He most certainly is interesting, I hear he is a Dreamspeaker. Not sure how to feel about him just yet.
You dare threaten me with the penalty of Gilgul? You are a weak, pretentious sage, you insult everyone who has ever walked your path. Stay away.Caleb Malik
I hear a lot about this one, but he appears to elude me.
A manipulator who cannot stand to see me with someone else other than his "society". Disgusting. The Priest
- Oh, Father Marcus, you'll be used to my own ends like everyone else is. Demi Owen
- Ah, Demi, Demi, Demi. You are a reckless one, but all things considered you are also one of the strongest among us. Becareful with that, it could end up getting you killed. Bronn
- I don't know who you are, but I better not see you around my homestead again. Stuart Pot
- He seems like a friendly gentleman. Alexander Rosso
- You try incredibly hard to be there for people, and for me, and that is what I appreciate about you. Victoria
- You are one of my kin, therefore I appreciate you. But be wary, wining and dining with the wolven-shifters will not benefit you in the long run. At heart, they are feral beasts with archaic beliefs. They do not want the best for you.Kristoffer
: An absolute piece of trash. Once day you'll be imprisoned in one of my many toys, and used for the pleasure of the Loa. Edward
: I am very suspicious of you, if your loyalties lie with Lucifer then you cannot be trusted. The Misty-Smelling Grave Digger
: A power depraved sycophant. If you live by the sword you die by the sword, that truism applies to you.Aun Firebrand
It doesn't get more better than this, a classy 20th century incarnation of Count Dracula. What a great guy.Alexander Parker
You are being used by that Edward being, other than that I think you are a good guy. Keep on keeping on.Shayara
The full package, power, beauty and elegance. I would not want to challenge her in battle. Jeremiah the Werewolf
I'm sorry that your sept keeps us from being friends. You are an absolutely fantastic, gorgeous life form. Perhaps one day racial politics will not inhibit our relationship, I can only hope...Margaret Smith:
You are gifted, my dear. You will serve as my assistant in asserting change and dynamism in red county and, possibly, the world. Leonard Wirtus
There is something gravely wrong with you, kid. Hopefully someone puts you in your place soon. Stay away!
Akashic Brotherhood: "You focus too much on the body and neglect the spirit. Strengthening one self physically and mentally is a good thing, no doubt, but neglecting the spirit is no way to do that. Despite their misguided ways, I believe their intentions are noble."
Celestial Chorus: "The manifestation of everything wrong with western civilization. You are nothing but a bunch of killers following someone you believe to be the creator. Shameful."
Dream Speakers: "We do our best, and though we may err, we are the mediators between this world and the next.."
Euthanatos: "There's something sinister about these ones, although, decay itself is but a product of nature and nature isn't always merciful."
Hollow Ones: "Interesting"
Order of Hermes: "They tend to enjoy enslaving spirits and acting obtusely. Don't do it around me and we'll be fine."
Sons of Ether: "Peddlers of scientism. The moment meaning comes into the fray, science means naught."
Verbena: "The brothers of my tradition. I appreciate them and their culture immensely, as life contains a spirit, too."
Virtual Adepts: "Idealists that continue to think of things that haven't really been invented as of yet."
Cult of Ecstasy: "A group of lost souls, lost in a haze of marijuana smoke and euphoria. Put down the pipe and do something that will actually benefit you and the world."
Night-folk and other Supernaturals
Vampires: - I'm starting to like you lot more and more..
Werewolves: - A foolish pack of wild, feral animals. They hold their "gaia" above all, and believe that she is the one source of everything, that couldn't be farther from the truth. "Gaia" is but one spirit, albeit powerful, but not by far the most powerful.
Demons: - Pretentious celestials, not a fan whatsoever. If I could send each and everyone of them back to the Deep Umbra I would.
True Faith Humans - Depending on what they adhere, these individuals could perhaps be some of the nicest you've ever met.
Never, ever. Sick, sick creatures, I will never solicit help from one of you. You know, I could possibly use you as a means to an end. Perhaps I'l bind your kind into a fetish, one day.
Ascended(Mages): We can shape the worlds merely with our will. That must amount to something.
