    Chow #004 - Mortimer, The Devil's Advocate

    Chow #004 - Mortimer, The Devil's Advocate

    ROUND #4

    -------------------------
    DEADLINE
    SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 19TH
    9 PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME

    --------------------------

    Mortimer, The Devil's Advocate
    NON-HUMAN

    If the Devil had a Lawyer, Mortimer would be it.

    Closely related to Succubae, Mortimer is an asexual minor deamon who’s will is that of it’s Overlord. Sent to parlay delicate matters of Spiritual Ownership, Soul Use, Spiritual Development and Management, Theological Planning and Soul Collection, Mortimer is a cunning negotiator and loves what he does because he is very, very good at it. And thinks it's fun watching people squirm.

    But what Mortimer would love the most is a glass of ice water .

    Mmm yes... Also, aren't succubus traditionally female?
    I assume this is just meant to be an ambiguous character (regarding gender)?

    Either way, this topic is great!!

    Reading the wiki, it suggests that a succubus is female demon, the male version being named Incubus. But under definition of the Incubus, it explains that in some legends the demon could change its sex at will. It also says that an Incubus would suduce both male and female humans alike. Imo I would define it has having no sex (hense being described as [I]asexual[/I.) but as a character it prefers to be male.

    If I was asexual I'd probably identify myself as male or female just because it would make things easier. That's how I'd interpret it. The other possibility - that our infallible mod has made a tiny error - is just inconceivable!



    This is gonna be fun!

    Another goodie! I like the sound of this one. More sexual ambiguity... Mortimer sounds like something out of Terry Pratchett.

    I think the asexual reference pertains to Mortimer being generally male in appearance, but not overtly masculine in his physique.

    Dictionary.com

    asexual (adj.)

    1. Having no evident sex or sex organs; sexless.
    2. Relating to, produced by, or involving reproduction that occurs without the union of male and female gametes, as in binary fission or budding.
    3. Lacking interest in or desire for sex.


    OK, #1 & #3 says that this character, an asexual type, does not care for sex at all, or is not capable of having sex. In nature, animals that are asexual are neither male nor female, but are capable of self-reproduction, so this character is able to have little "Mortimers" running around, eh? - (that is, if "it" was from nature). But theologically, "it" is not necessarily from nature, but from the dark depths of the "unnatural".

    Sooooooo. Since there is no clear definition of what kind of "asexual" attributes this character has, even from this vague formal definition, I am assuming that it is up to the artist to decide which way this character will swing. It can't swing both ways since it has no desire to, *BUT* it can swing both ways with itself --- *IF* you follow #2's explaination.

    Wierd, huh?

    Thanks Oregano!!!

    OK....this is getting kinda weird.

    Either make the character Mortimer in female form, or in male form. If male, I would make him very handsome (if in human form), with slight hints and undertones of an evil nature.

    That's just my thoughts. This is a really good topic. It's challenging, to say the least, so all sorts of creativity is open for this one....

    After having thought it over, I am going with PaulGanguly's version - it seems to make sense without perverting the description. Still, it is up to our own interpretation, right???
