Numenera Up North
An intelligent jack who crafts unique objects
Setoo Bran is a pale-skinned youth in his early twenties, with a head of wild scraggly hair sticking up in all directions, partially scorched patches are missing. A rather feeble beard (grown in an attempt to look older) is sprouting around his mouth and chin but is little more than wispy fluff over the rest of his jaw. His tall (around 6 feet) and wiry frame give him the appearance of being gangly, and oversized boots,and an apron that looks like is was made for a larger man help this effect little. A set of complex goggles and lenses mounted on his brow almost entirely hide his eyes, and a thick mass of cables loop from the device to a socket at the base of his skull.
In addition o his heavily stained, patched and pocketed apron Setoo wears a simple grey knitted jumper with the sleeves rolled to the elbow and brown woollen trousers, closely fitting and tightly bound to fit into his large, steel-capped leather boots. Strung about with pieces of long-dead cyphers, tools, and oddities, he has the appearance of a rather drab Christmas tree.
Inexperienced in combat, Setoo prefers to fight from afar with a crank crossbow of his own design, but has been known to brandish his wide array of tools to deadly (if somewhat unintentional) effect.
Taught by his father in electronics and mechanics from a very young age, Setoo is fascinated by cyphers of every imaginable purpose and finds great satisfaction in disassembling them in order to devine just what each can do. At the age of 13 his father disappeared without explanation, leaving behind a devastated and deeply conflicted young man Who poured himself wholly into his studies. Four years later, finally giving up all hope of his father returning, and skilled enough to make his own way in the world, Setoo left his home to uncover the fate of his long lost father, and learn everything he could of the workings of the Numenera. He has been travelling ever since, not staying in any one place for very long, repairing and building to make his way, and often accepting exhausted cypher ands oddities as payment for his work. Many of these have been cannibalised to build Setoo’s goggles, which are essentially a sensor array allowing him to recognise energy signatures, and understand the inner workings of machinery.
Despite little in common, Seeto feels a strong bond to the glaive Nibov Reprov, who he encountered whilst making his way to Charmonde. Whilst passing through a heavily wooded area Seeto was ambushed by several bandits and was more than likely about to meet a grizzly end had Nibov not intervened. Having lost his bow in the ensuing fight, Seeto crafted him a new weapon using several cyphers, showing him the benefit that technology can offer a man in a fight. The two travelled together for the remaining 2 weeks to reach Charmonde where they met the rest of the party.
