astral leads the connection toward their bright future. he's a sexy narcissist in his late 30s (with the receding hairline to show for it) with the soul of an alien. he started out as a philosophy doctoral candidate but was expelled for his innovative research techniques. now, he has a commune in the woods of pasadena filled with magicians of various kind all performing sex magic. he's wolf whistling at his cult members through the gap between his front teeth if he's not shooting up alone in his room.
he projects a laid-back hedonistic hippie persona, fully accepting of all the delicious consequences of new age spiritiuality, free love, and sex magic, but he's also a mega control freak, emotionally volatile, and vain.
sex plays an extremely important role in his life. he fucks for leisure, physical satisfaction, and to breed his wife and usher forth the new fate of his alien species. unfortunately, he has ferility issues :grimacing: heroin is his second favorite thing after sex. it's fun, he's just a junkie.

the year is 1969.
on january 18th, 1931, theodore parsons was born to mr. and mrs. parsons, joining three sisters tracey, tammy, and tess in a beautiful house in los angeles.
astral was a prodigy in most things he tried. he started reading when he was two, but his family was more preoccupied by his propensity for spontaneously bursting into flame. it was horrible to hear him cry from the pain, but when it was over it'd only be a few seconds before he was completely healed.
graduating high school early, astral let his sister, tess, an army colonel, pay for him to get a master's in philosophy. for his thesis, he employed the very bold strategy of plagiarizing and trying to hide it forever. a few weeks into his first semester as a doctoral candidate, astral was expelled.
annoyed by the expulsion, he tried to kill himself by driving his truck into a river. he missed and hit a lamp post, which almost killed him. while he's knocked out, he has a vision of himself as the weird alien bug thing that he is. he has the answer now to why he has always been so gifted. he wasn't human.
astral scours the newspapers for a local story about a woman who'd been abducted by aliens. he tracked her down and together they started the connection. now, it's just preparation and picking up more magicians to help him along the way.

Origin of Name
He's named after Jack Whiteside Parson, but his first name is Theodore because it means "gift of god." he sure does think he is. then, realizing that they couldn't just keep calling him gift of god, his family started calling him teddy like the bear.
we were thinking of the most hippie name we could think of for a cult leader character. we did pretty good.
