CthulhuTech - Once Were Men
Rotund Scholar of Things Better Left Undisturbed
The professor is a somewhat stuffy but generally amiable scholar of some repute whose passion occasionally overrides his good sense and academic caution. His red-faced jowls and flapping ears conceal a fine intellect and noble soul. Rompuy is decent with a revolver and may use weapons in extremis, but his preferred method of confronting the Mythos is on its own terms: mystical artifacts, spells of protection and other well-researched nostrums. Knowledge is power, and the professor strongly believes that it can be used most efficaciously against the madness of the Mythos.
It seems he’s heard of the Eldritch Society, though his allegiance is clearly to the Hermetic Order of the Silver Twilight. The professor is most often found in the company of Dr Burke and Young Jeffrey.
Professor Rompuy typically wears a stereotypical tweed jacket, cullotes and virtual glasses, as well as affecting a PCPU in the form of a silver watch on a chain. He carries a briefcase full of vidpaper, electronic lockpicks, fragments of ancient scrolls, and strange little spoons.
