Biography (ca. 1921)

Erik “The Cousin” Syveran was nicknamed as such because of his vast amounts of connections. He knows anyone who is worth knowing, and even those who aren’t, on a personal level. He is a very successful entrepreneur who owns multiple businesses throughout Rochester. He does not come from a wealthy family so his rise to aristocracy is a surprise to most, but those who knew him as a child knew he’d be destined for greatness.

He’s got a lively personality and a palpable energy to him, which make it easy for people to like him. He has the luxuries of a rich man, but still has the aura of a common one, which most find appealing. His powerful smile can either be welcoming or extremely intimidating and he knows how to use it proficiently. Erik is generally found Cloud City, but has also been reportedly seen deep within Tartarus. For a wealthy man, that is generally considered a suicide trip, but Erik appears to emerge unscathed if those rumors are true.

His word is very influential in the town’s innerworkings. He has his hands in the local politics and the local crime syndicate. Often his ties to P.I.E.S. come into question but any reports are largely ignored by the police.
