Edge of the Breach
Edge of the Breach

Chaotic Confessions

Halo Scot is a nightmare-dwelling beast who subsists on a steady diet of shadows. Prone to chaos, Halo aims to achieve galactic domination through a void-screaming expertise, dormant telekinesis, and aggressive cackling. Halo pretends to be cool, dark, and mysterious, when in reality, Scot is a rather clumsy and awkward creature with a severe distrust of ladybugs.

To summon this obscure and skittish writer, one must align the following items in a circle as an offering: three shots of whiskey, two bowls of jelly beans, something shiny or lit on fire, and a printed photo of Nicolas Cage as a duck.
