Vagabond Character in When the Curtain has fallen | World Anvil


The █████ Vagabond (a.k.a. The Deserter)

Before the Extinction

After being born as the Faceless One of the seventh generation (7 years before the Extinction), Vagabond took part in many missions related to the fissures in The Curtain showing up around the globe. He proved to be efficient, both working cooperatively in various squads and solo.  

During Extinction

Few weeks before the Extinction began, all of the Faceless Ones have been deployed in the locations where The Curtain was the thinnest.
After the Lords have broadcasted The Word, they were told to hold their ground, however when the Lords used the Word that Warps, the surviving units were forced to retreat.
During the first year, Vagabond was able to acquire the Sword of Data, a weapon that analyzes anything it cuts, by defeating the Lord of Data single-handedly.
The brigade he was in (consisting of 6 teams at the start) managed to kill the 40 of the Lords.
During the third year, when the Lords focused on destroying The Curtain (Operation "Show must go on"), the data the Vagabond has collected let The Faceless create the counter-ritual which would slow the progress the Lords have made.
During the operation, for an unknown reason, Vagabond deserted and disappeared.
Show spoiler
Even if he helped, the operation didn't have any chance of success.

After the Extinction

One year after the Extinction has ended, Vagabond reappeared after his disappearance. He lost the Sword of Data, his Blood lost its color. Vagabond doesn't remember the first part of his name.
He currently wanders all around the wasteland of the world.

Physical Description

General Physical Condition

He is a light type of unit of the Faceless One, specializing in scouting, finding out the weaknesses of his enemies, and leading them into traps and ambushes.

Facial Features

Vagabonds' mask/helmet didn't change during his awakening. It is still a standard light-type smooth visor attached to the rest of the armor.

Identifying Characteristics

During his awakening, Vagabond's armor manifested some of his powers in its design. There are chains coiled and hanging down on his arms, torso, and partially his legs. Sometimes Vagabond attaches stuff to his chains, increasing the amount of equipment he's capable to carry. He can change the length of the chains at will (at their maximum length, each chain can only reach the ground from the point where they are uncoiled, making the ones on the legs the shortest).   Before the Extinction and during it, his Blood was █████. After he deserted, it has completely lost its color.   Whenever another Faceless One talks to him, they still refer to his old color, however, no one (who isn't Faceless One), and even him, can hear it (he will act as if he heard it, but cannot remember what exactly they said). To everyone else, he will introduce himself just as a Vagabond.

Physical quirks

Left hand dominant.
Whenever he is bored, he starts to tap with his fingers, either on something or on himself.

Apparel & Accessories

His armor is █████ with gray and brown additions. After the Extinction, the main color has faded out.

Kind..., Meet again..., Happy.
— Bianca about Vagabond
I've never seen anything like that. I almost can't see her chains. She and her friends really need some help.
— Vagabond about Bianca and Dead Squad
The first time they met, Vagabond entered the area that Bianca was securing. The warning shot flew less than a half meter from his head. Instead of running away, he tried to sneak up to her. but as he entered the building she was in, she already moved.   The second time they met, he encountered her whole squad (Dead Squad) while wandering around the town. Since then, they managed to meet many times more.
Bianca started feeling a connection towards Vagabond, mostly due to the state of their bodies. If not for the rest of the squad that needs her to survive, she would join him in his travel a long time ago.

Shared Secrets

When Vagabond looked at her with his sight, he saw only two chains, only two things that still keep her body alive. He wants to help her. Either by creating new chains or by changing the attachment of the old ones.   He wants those six to live happy lives.

Vagabond is one of the three main protagonists (with Kundel and Professor Kostek) in the world after the Extinction came.

Defeating the Lord of Data by his own hand and acquiring the Sword of Data.
Using said Artifact to gather the data about the Lords and their weaknesses.  


The desertion and disappearance.  

Aspect of chains

His aspect, that he gained during the ritual that created him, is one of the chains. It lets him see the things that chain others (their fears, unfinished business, and weaknesses, but also relationships and responsibilities). He can strengthen the chains, binding his target to the surroundings (either objects or the area itself). This power proves to be useful when fighting the spirits that don't manifest completely in the material world, as it can force them to manifest in an object. In that case, destroying said object can destroy lesser spirits and weaken stronger ones.
