* Final entry in our series on Passions and Questors!

* Lochost: Passion of Rebellion, Change, and Freedom

* Often associated with adventurers, and with games that feature anti-slavery themes.

* Symbols: strong winds, uprooted trees, open gates.

* Powers: Inspire rebellion, comfort the imprisoned, unlock doors, transform into wind.

* Vestrial: Passion of Manipulation and Deceit

* Trickster before the Scourge, not as drastic a change as other Mad Passions.

* Inspiration from other mythological tricksters: Coyote, Loki, Anansi.

* Powers: To confuse or beguile with lies, learn someone’s secret desires, travel to anywhere somebody has said a lie.

* Pop culture reference: Nick Fury
