The Silver Divide
High Concept: CHANGELING GLORY HOUND
Trouble: I’VE NEVER HAD AN IDEA I DIDN’T LIKE
Other Aspects: EVERYTHING’S A COMPETITION; WHAT DOESN’T KILL ME MAKES ME AWESOME
Henry, aka “The H-Bomb”, “ThunderBolton” and a dozen other obnoxious self-applied nicknames is a former Commonwealth silver medal triathlete who has reinvented himself many times through relentless self-promotion. With a long mane of blond hair, blue eyes and a permanent tan, Henry was made to pose in front of the cameras. Spent a number of years on the extreme sports circuit where he would have encountered Lydia, hitting on her every time they met. His adventure career was apparently cut short when he received a serious spinal injury while attempting to skydive while riding a horse some two years ago. However he recently resurfaced, walking again and vowing to resurrect his athletic career and this time take gold. As part of his comeback media blitz he is making an appearance at the Winter Festival Birdman Competition.

Sight reveals a golden lion, arrogant and majestic, vibrant with life – intensity 2. Definitely Summer aspected, but not overwhelmingly so – there’s still a mortal in there.
Birdman Competition: The competitors gather in a tent provided for them to assemble their costumes before revealing them to the crowd. Old friendships and rivalries abound, mostly good-natured in tune with the general party atmosphere. The costumes range from simple to elaborate, many reflecting what’s popular this year – there are at least two vampires and a werewolf, a Harry Potter with a broomstick, a group dressed as the current annoying boy band, <take>, and, with a crowd gathering around him, Henry Bolton. His costume is a rocket with BOLLO 11 emblazoned on the side. It looks like it could have been made by a professional costume department, no expense spared. At the base are several suspicious-looking cylinders.
