No one in the League is quite sure where he came from, or why Ophelia Himmle finds him so interesting. Not that these questions occupy them all that much, generally they only pay him enough attention to tell if he is going to try to blow anything up too close to their chairs during tea. They are fairly certain that he is quite mad, but don’t find that sufficient reason to look down their noses, particularly when they have the much more suitable excuses of his being theoretically younger and more male than they, already.
Ethmer’s younger brother and self-declared artificer of the league. He faithfully follows the traditions of the great umbrella-slingers of the West, though no one actually knows why. He also sports a close working relationship with Herbert Von Schnapsleheimer, who remains the only person to this day that never needed to ask what steam powered socks were for.
Lady champion of defenestration, a title which Harriet Lycanthrope severely resents, she is Ophelia’s approximate right hand and the League’s most formidable warrior. It is, in fact, rumored that she received early training from none other than the suffragettes, though she has never expressed an opinion on the subject one way or another.
Constructor, tender, and interpreter of the Total Scarf, she lives in the chambers situated above her husband’s old wool shop. The fact that it was sold to a third party at the event of her husband’s death, some ten years previously, has completely failed to impress her as a valid reason to find alternate lodgings, and the present owner possess sufficient instincts of self preservation not to press the point.
Long time partner to Ophelia Himmle in her endless quests to understand the nature of umbralites and the universe in general and the only League member privy to the intimate details of Ophelia’s mysterious “Avatar Project.” Though, this was mostly due to her habit of not muttering an excuse and running for cover whenever the League’s venerable leader appeared with a fist full of notes and a manic gleam in her eyes. It is popularly believed that it was over exposure to Ophelia’s pet project that finally induced her to leave the League and all but vanish from their knowledge.
