Mr. Six's Origin Story and Epic Quest

Recommended Posts

I am Six.

Padawan Assassin



The Origin of Six




The fog surrounding Mr. Six had lingered like the thoughts of a former lover--and comfortably on the fringes of his thoughts.  For years he had yearned for adventure and fell into daydreams of never-memories.  For the uninitiated, never-memories represent a (preferred) fictional outcome for one's own history.  And for years, the never-memories seemed to be enough to sate Mr. Six's appetite for something greater than what he perceived to be a rather mundane life. 


Coupled with the fog of never-memories was something more insidious.  A dark and ravenous seed had come to root in the mind of Mr. Six long ago .  The seed quietly grew with Mr. Six's complacent assistance into a symbiotic entity whose tendrils had ensnared Six's mind and body to do it's bidding.


Despite his best efforts, Six had been unable to clear the fog and incapable of ridding himself of his  demon.  Then one day during  the month of December, grave news fell upon Six.  While Six had braced himself, the news still ripped through his consciousness and called him to action.  Never-memories, daydreams, and complacency could never again become the norm.  In these darkest personal moments, Mr. Six allied himself with the Rebellion.


These are still the early days of Six's journey and the narrative is far from over.




Six’s Ambitions


Like most in the Rebellion, I want to be healthier, stronger, and live more fully. 


On a daily basis, I will not anger or worry.  I will be present, grateful, and work diligently.  I will be kind.


In my endeavors, I will strive to create and act in a manner that is innovative, useful, aesthetic, understandable, unobtrusive, honest, thorough, efficient, and minimal.
