Ashurbanipal the Black, Oak of Assyria, Emertius Professor of Plaid Magic at the University of Carolina in the Sky.

An intellectual magician of refined tastes and a military background who, until recently, was a happily-retired-as-a-college-professor of magical theory, until he realized that a) he really needed nuyen, and b) that without a boss to report to, the drudgery that he'd previously found a grinding tedium, had transformed into a fulfilling and challenging vocation of carving people's heads in with a telekinetic axe.

Later, Ash discovered that he had a son -- in fact, one that, unbeknownst to him, was one of the lab subjects whose data he'd worked on earlier in his life. The revelation shook him, and combined with a generous offer from SK, prompted him to retire from shadowrunning.

Services: Ash can make alchemical preps, artifice, assist with ritual spellcasting (he has the Greater Ritual metamagic), or assist with other sorts of magical tasks. He does not make alchemical preps for illegal work, because those can be traced back to him. If he artifices for you, it means you can buy foci at market price up to force equal to his magic minus 2. Preps cost a service for two preps, of up to Force 13 (i.e., his magic +3). If you use a prep and it gets traced back to him, he's going to be upset with you.

In addition to assisting with rituals, he can cast his own. He knows most rituals, spells and alchemical preparations. His preparations roll an extra nine dice when activated.

What are friends for? At loyalty 4, if, at the beginning of the month, you owe this contact exactly one chip, you no longer owe them that chip. You can have multiple contacts with this ability, and they all work.

Mentor At the end of the month, if you owe this contact two or more chips, you owe them two less. This power only applies to the original player's characters, and replaces the other contact power.
