The Good

Wandering Koala

Wandering Koala

Enigmatic Traveler

Urban legends from across the globe going back several decades tell of a Silent Wanderer who appears out of nowhere and helps those in their most desperate moment.

No one is sure when these legends began or even where. Hard evidence, such as photography or video, seems to be scarce, and what little exists is brief and questionable. Eyewitness accounts are also difficult to come by, as those providing testimony have just come from an intense, emotionally charged experience that would frazzle even the strongest nerves.

Stories are varied, and certainly he can’t have traveled the entire world over the last five or six decades. Most likely several legends have been combined into one and contributed to him. But it is curious that they all agree on certain, specific details: he is mute, but he always speaks up for those in need; he has sharp claws that can be detach and return (most likely a weapon of sorts); he has traveling companions; he wears red; he is directed by a compass which points him to those who need him most; and his gymnastics and fighting abilities are unparalleled.

Unfortunately, his discovery threatened the careers and reputation of many in the scientific community, and they didn't just take it. Brent found himself discredited, unemployed, and on the street. But then he met a Silent Wanderer with a habit of showing up just when others needed him most.

Brent has an uncanny intuition when it comes to science allowing him to solve problems that still plague the professionals.
