+What I'm Doing in Haven+

Shortly after the fire there was a call for new staff to replenish and rebuild the Blackfield Institute in Haven. Ewen, recently hired away from the Tyrell Corporation, has come to Haven to continue his research into mental manipulation and other cognitive brain research. With him has come his sister, Harper, who looks and acts nothing like him and is probably adopted.

+Where I fit in a Supernatural World+

As a member of Blackfield’s Staff, he is currently a senior researcher working with Dr. Schmidt and the rest of the staff, he is very aware of the Supernatural and works with is every day. He views his roll at the Academy to make the students more competent, both in harnessing their powers, and becoming more than passive observers in this life. He firmly believes that supernaturals should assume their rightful place as something of benevolent overlords.

His work in the Clinic is something of a different manner. Not a true sadist he has been known to threaten, and succeed, and rendering the more unruly patients docile through experimental and probably slightly unethical means.

+How I Cope with the Lurking Horrors+

Generally the darkness doesn’t scare him as much as it probably should. Even the Cardinals are only moderately unsettling. He fears a greater authority: The Institute Director. To this end he very much views the students and patients as Backfield assets that need to be protected and nurtured and tries very hard to remain neutral to outside influences.

RP Hooks

ø Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether - Anything related to medicine or mental care he will help with. Even the most dangerous of criminals can find succor in his clinic, but that doesn't mean he won't have his fun.

ø The Fall of the House of Usher - Whether or not they are actually blood related is irrelevant to Ewen when it comes to his little sister, Harper. Family is family, and always will be.

ø A Dream Within a Dream - Ewen's research into the mind often has him wandering the Dreamscape, both in the Nightmare and the dream worlds.
