Dragons over The Bay
Emperor Norton, redux
This man, who calls himself Emperor Norton II, is certain that he is the reincarnation of the original Emperor Norton, from the 19th Century. He claims that he was awoken to his need about five years ago when Durchhaltwhellen arrived and began making his presence known to the supernatural world. That he awoke to the great need his city had for a leader, and that he was just such a leader. He wanders about, mediating conflicts, began reissuing Imperial Credit (which only he, or his Duly Appointed Ministers may sell, and which is accepted in a large handful of spots in The City.) He lives mostly on the streets, or in cheap motels, and he seems to know EVERYONE, and the rank and file populous of the city adore him, even though it’s obvious to everyone that he is quite insane. One of his wishes, is that he needs an Empress, so as to continue the Imperial Line without complicating matters. This is, however, complicated by the fact that he is truely barking mad, and is looking for a real and lasting romance of state. Cheap whores do not interest him, nor do thrill seekers who only wish to say that they squelched with Norton.
