Name, Appearance, & History

James H Cornus: former politician, power broker, apocalyptic agent.

In appearance, he is best be described as "nondescript". He appears to be in his 60s, conservatively styled and dressed, usually wearing a simple dark blue or gray suit.

His political history is only notable in its lack of notability; it almost seems copied from a Poli Sci textbook. Educated as a lawyer, James rose through the ranks of local and regional government, eventually serving several terms as senator (R) of New Hampshire. He has since publicly retired from politics, although rumors persist that his actual influence has not lessened as a result of his retirement.

Unknown to all but his closest allies, Cornus' motivation is not simple accumulation of power. He is, in fact, a fundamentalist Christian, and firmly believes that the modern era is the prophesied End Times. Furthermore, he views it as his duty to accelerate the apocalyptic process in order to hasten the return of Jesus Christ. He is entirely aware that such an agenda would be viewed with horror by most of the voting populace, and has pursued it clandestinely. Cornus' favored mode of operation is to, in the guise of helping, arrange events such that hidden tensions will cause an eventual collapse.

His Ennobling was largely the result of the above pursuits. Given access to a former resident of the Chancel as payment for information by a customs official, Cornus was convinced that the man had found a backdoor to the Kingdom of God, and convinced him to re-enter the Chancel and guide Cornus through the labyrinth. The resident perished en route, but Cornus survived and eventually found his way into the citadel itself. Once there, he was recognized by Set as well suited for the Power of Secrets.

Cornus firmly believes that Set is actually an apocalyptic angel. Evidence to the contrary, such as the existence of a Power of Evolution, is viewed as a perpetual test of his faith and trap for the unwary.
