Information

Mender of the Ourboros

Mender Lazarus is a time traveler who lost his sense of continuity long ago. He's from the time 7740 AD and in an attempt to find the ideal temporal node to effect the greatest change, Lazarus has sacrificed some of himself. Of all the Ouroboros, he has time traveled the most, but does not doubt or regret his decision to do so. He is still a brilliant scientist and historian, even though his sense of cause and effect might be reversed.

He's often distracted by phantom visions of possibility, prone to ramble off facts that aren't yet true or events that never actually happened. Mender Lazarus is so close to the edge of his time tether, that he can practically SEE the abyss. To prevent complete insanity, Lazarus wears protective oculars of Mender Silos' design to help filter out the shadow possibilities.

Below Level Requirement

This doesn't make any sense to me. My readings tell me that your Temporal Scaling isn't strong enough yet to support the mission I had planned for you. But you've already done the mission. I know. I was there.

Alright, then that means that I'm talking to a you that is not yet you, well 'my' you. Here's what you need to do. Take a look around and get to know this place. I don't know how you got here but remember it. Burn it into your mind, because at some point in your future, say when you're around level 30, I'm going to need you to come back here and help me. You have to remember that. Come back. Now good luck and watch out for that abyss behind you. There's no coming back from that.

Dialogue

From The Pilgrim: Join Ouroboros

Once free: Just like old times, eh?

If refound: I hate deja vu. Occupational hazard.

Etymology

Lazarus is the name of the old man who was raised from the dead by Jesus in the New Testament of the Bible, and is recounted in the book of John 11:41-44.

However, Mender Lazarus is more likely a reference to Lazarus Long, a character in several of Robert A. Heinlein's novels including Methuselah's Children and Time Enough For Love. In Heinlein's novels, Lazarus Long is the oldest human in existence, a time traveler, and rather fond of wearing kilts, a trait Mender Lazarus shares.
