Quote1.png According to legends, the warrior Gilgamesh used a gold mask to imprison a powerful demon, or what we might consider today as an ancient psychic meta-human. But with the centuries, the mask has popped up all over the world: the Yoruba Tribe in Africa, 17th-century pirates, all the way up to Hayden. Now, the story goes, if you wear the mask, it doesn't just give you powers. It feeds off of your mind, leaving you insane and leaving the mask in search of a new wearer. A psychic parasite moving from host to host, and now it found a brain that's capable of speed thinking. Quote2.png
