    And Beast is a Changeling Beast? Or is he a literal Beast, and the Castle is his Lair? The Latter might work better for romance purposes, and I think you could fluff the Devouring as a sort of curse.
    ​Changeling, most likely Hunterheart. The Enchantress was a Gentry, and the rest of the castle staff are Wizened.

        I'd say Azatoth is closer to the God-Machine. Both are Blind Idiot Gods who create and destroy without a clear purpose, are responsible for maintaining reality as we know it, are associated with cosmic forces, and nobody knows what would happen if they woke up/were fixed. And Azathoth has at least one named agent who takes on human form. Who's to say it doesn't create many Nyarlathoteps like the God-Machine creates many Angels?

          OMG, Nyarlathothep is a Demon! His many faces are Covers, and despite being a Messenger for the Outer Gods, he is kind of different, and there are interpretations about him hating them and trying to become more important. Also the only eldritch horro that really meets humans at face-to-face, on a personal level.
          So... Demon with one Angel-hijacked Cover plus a thousand additional ones? I'd peck him as a Messenger Tempter-Integrator.

            He definitely works as a godlike Messenger Demon. Not only does he have many faces, he is served by cultists, crosses vast distances in moments, visits other realms, and creates wondrous devices. Both Demons and Angels can do all of that. He'd be a Tempter-Integrator if he's still loyal to Azathoth/the God-Machine. It's also possible that he despises servitude so much that he decided to become his own God, which would make him a Tempter-Inquisitor. I wrote a character sheet for him.

            • Would Doctor Doom be a Hoffnung Genius with a lot of mystical knowledge, or a Moros Mage that complements his magic with scientific knowledge? I'm inclined to think he's the latter.

              • Doom has always seemed slightly more Mad Scientist-y than Mad Mage. I don't think his tricks are vulnerable to Dissonance-like effects, so I think that is the deciding factor.

                  not to mention that there is that group of Genii who try to test the limits of Inspiration by building Wonders with theories that involve magical trappings like ritual circles and such

                    • So I watched Smurfs 2 last week, and I realized it's a Promethean story. Some liberties must be taken, of course:

                      Smurfs are stable, natural creatures,(like humans) but they contain magical "essence"(Azoth/Pyros) that Gargamel seeks.(that makes them like Prometheans)

                      The Naughties are unstable, artificial creatures, that require "essence" on a regular basis to survive,(like Pandorans) but have the potential to become Smurfs.(like Prometheans can become human)

                      Gargamel is obviously an Insatiate Alchemist, ("I want MORE than enough!")

                      ​Here's the kicker; part of the formula for turning a Naughty into a Smurf is "a hopeful thought".
