Herbert Downes

College: Hedi

Familiar: Ranger the Flamezian Shepherd Dog

Herbert is always talking. There’s a constant stream of words coming from his mouth and it’s such a distraction. He’s forever getting into trouble in classes. He could be a totally normal boy if it wasn’t for that nonstop wagging of his tongue. Herbert begins as clever enough, but over time he just ends up seeming to be a bit annoying. He could be a good distraction if you’re trying to avoid attention.

Ability: Chatterbox[]

Whether he knows it or not, Herbert’s natural ability to talk one’s ear off actually prevents that person from studying for their classes, thus keeping their exam scores artificially low.

Clique Ability: Wingman[]

If you're Herbert's friend, and if you ask him very nicely, he'll run interference for you for an entire day, Decreasing your chance of being discovered by 2% and Increasing - through the power of relentless, distracting verbiage - some chosen victim's Chance of Failure, at everything, by 5%. It's actually kind of a wonder to behold!
