“I have learned to hate all traitors, and there is no disease that I spit on more than treachery.”
– Aeschylus


      For whatever reason it is, the Lost known as Doctor Sterling holds no one immediately close to her. For years she has had no motley, and has never pledged to a Freehold for more than two consecutive seasons. She's always on the move - whether it's hunting out dream poison in areas, investigating other realms of Gentry influence, or simply providing the service of her healing skills she hops from place to place. Usually, little is asked in return, but she always seems to have some means of supporting herself while dedicating herself to those who need it.

      In personality she's a caustic individual, frequently missing social or conversational cues, but actively avers that she has the Lost community's best interest in mind. Those who are familiar with her may know that she is a reasonably old Changeling - born in the 1940s, taken in the 1970s - and has merged into the upper echelons of those touched by the Wyrd. While some risk becoming as bad as their Keepers, the Oneirophysic seems more likely to fade away.

RP Hooks

  • Not the Nicest Doc - Sterling has a very brusque demeanor, which often times gives people the wrong first impression. Don't like how she's treating someone?
  • Medical Know-how - Doctor Sterling has a reputation in both the Mortal and Lost circles of being a talented doctor - the latter may know she's an Oneirophysic, a healer that acts through dreams. Are you in need of some help?
  • Dream Hunter - Less known for this, somewhat intentionally, Sterling has honed herself to find people and do battle in dreams.


  • Sunset Colada - I still am sorry about our initial meeting. You have proven to be very pleasant company.
  • Douche God - Do try to protect your flock instead of only reenacting Jack the Ripper on those who would harm them. They need that more.
  • Poppy - You're delightful, I hope we can speak again.

I wrestled long with my youth
We tried so hard to live in the truth
But do not tell me all is fine
When I lose my head, I lose my spine
