Familiar: Ted the Brownback Snoring Tortoise
“Insufferable bore” is the clearest way to describe Avgust. Oh, Avgust could tell you some wonderful stories about the time when he was vacationing in countryside and there were goats there, and how he had an absolutely wonderful meal that one night. Not to mention the ride he had on a carriage! There are a good many more stories as thrilling as those. Just wait around, you’ll be sure to hear them. Every day someone gets caught in a chat with Avgust and no one wants to be rude enough just to walk away from him or tell him to shut it. His stories are best experienced in bed when you’re having trouble falling asleep.
Ability: Voice Like a Songbird
Avgust’s voice has many qualities similar to that of songbirds; as such, his Voice Skill is better than many, and he has a higher chance of succeeding at any Perform Music: Voice action.
Though many find Avgust’s voice dull and boring, the truth is that his voice is a pearl that simply needs a bit of polish. This "hidden" skill hardly comes in handy, especially when one considers the difficulty Avgust has in conversation, but his inborn ability is undeniable...for those who can fight past the boredom, that is.

Clique Abilities: Knowledge of All Things Famed
The stunning breadth of Avgust’s knowledge translates into all things famous, giving his friends a 3-point boost to their Famous Battles, Famous Dilemmas, Famous Geometry Problems, Famous Poetry, Famous Prose, Famous Songs, and Famous Speeches Skills; unfortunately, Avgust is such a bore that merely being associated with him makes one less conversationally fluent (Conversation -2).
Avgust knows a lot about things that many people find interesting. His trouble isn’t what he knows or doesn’t know…it’s that he can’t express himself like he wishes he could. Anyone who bothers to take the time to get to know Avgust will find that he knows quite a bit about things that have come before; if he could just translate that knowledge into something interesting, he might have a shot at being considered more interesting himself.
