[OOC][Annasiel] Doki-Doki Channel! Strand D Lorebank

Post by Annasiel » Mon Jun 19, 2017 6:23 am

Dougherty, Richard Kent - A molecular biologist and professor at NKU, the leading mind on emotive biophysics.

Age: 54
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 179 lbs
Desc: Green eyes, professionally cut light brown hair, tall, pale and gaunt. A somber, quiet demeanor, very soft-spoken. Estonian ethnicity, spent most of his life in Japan.

Bibliography
  • Different Kinds - A textbook documenting the first actual studies on witch biology.
  • Practical Magic for the Professional Pedagogue - A textbook, co-written with Physicist Molly Haines, on the powers of witches, their apparent laws, and noted limitations. Includes an in-depth analysis of every known witch ability, updated yearly.
  • What Lies in Wait: A Study of Witches and Grimm - A collection of essays from Dougherty setting the foundation for his Theory of Witch and Grimm Cogeneration.
Excerpts from What Lies in Wait:

"It is known to all man that coins have two sides. This fact is ingrained in our collected mind, held to be as true as the color of the sky and the heat of fire. Dualism exists in all things; to push means to be pushed back, and inevitably, to be attacked means some force rises to defend. But why is this accepted wholeheartedly, without question or concern? Why do we stretch our belief so far, already strained by the existence of monsters, to include the fortuitous appearance of a 'magical' shield right in our moment of need? Yes, a coin has two sides, but both sides exist on the same coin."

"Do not take my words as insult or derision. I am grateful for the protection born of circumstance, and understand that without it, we would be far-pressed to protect our lands and children from the evils that be."

"However, I merely present a different way of thinking, a way that, for curiosity's sake, explores the seemingly coincidental rise. As a man of science, I believe coincidences are to be scrutinized, and that their existence might conceal a trend that is, not only far from luck, but actually rooted in the same mechanics of origin."

"The following collection of essays are based in research over many years. Do not take my conclusions for truth, as much of the discoveries based in my field are still shrouded by natural phenomena behind our current technology's ability to grasp, but understand it still shows the unmistakable signs of a potential pattern."


Haines, Molly Bridget - A theoretical physicist with the Nikai Intellectual Society (NIS), and a common partner in research with Richard Doughtery. She, alongside Dougherty, is one of the top minds in emotive biophysics.

Age: 32
Height: 5'4"
Weight: 134 lbs
Desc: Brown eyes, short, brown hair cut in a pixie style. Round face, very cheerful and peppy. Korean ethnicity, raised in Maginot.

Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Strand D has two main routes for asset acquisition: Contract of Mandatory Acquisition (CMA) and Contract of Recommended Acquisition (CRA). In the case of the latter, government officials are allowed, and even encouraged, to coerce, falsify information, blackmail, and employ duress to evoke a contract. In the former's case, anything short of lethal force or permanent maiment is sanctioned upon enactment, and those methods may even be allowed if the witch poses a threat to handler welfare during acquisition.

CMA assets are prone to special protocols in the pursuit of public safety. These extralegal countermeasures, referred to as "training plans" for the purpose of clandesty, are to be followed by all DDC personnel without hesitation or question. Failure to comply may result in coaching, disciplinary marks, or termination of employment.

It is imperative that all DDC personnel, especially handlers, distinguish between the public persona of CMA assets and their potential for catastrophe. The Dougherty-Kinder index is used to rank all CMA assets in potential for catastrophe. Handlers are highly encouraged to review their asset's dossier before engaging in first contact.

Architecture

D's architecture is a futuristic bent on Soviet constructivism. By definition:
Constructivist architecture emerged from the wider constructivist art movement, which grew out of Russian Futurism. Constructivist art had attempted to apply a three-dimensional cubist vision to wholly abstract non-objective 'constructions' with a kinetic element.
Examples of constructivist architecture:
