    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".

                      • I got one.

                        Shazam (formerly Captain Marvel) as a Noble, from Princess: the Hopeful.

                        Alternate form with superior attributes? Check.

                        Supernatural gifts that only work when transformed? Check.

                        Supernatural powers treat either form as a separate person from the other? If Young Justice is anything to go by, yes.

                        Hopeful child fighting against evil? Check.

                        He doesn't really have regalia, but he still fits pretty well. Not sure off the top of my head what court he'd be, though.

                        • The Joker? An Angel of the Godmachine.

                          Massively elaborate but seemingly pointless plans? Incredibly advanced technology from no clear source? No clear motivation? A total lack of identity? Almost but not quite human looking? Unavoidable bans he must follow? The world conspires to keep him alive and free?

                          All the killings and destruction are part of an an occult matrix. However, he's getting more and more obsessed with a local ungulla nemesis, and is close to falling. Which would probably be really bad for everyone.

                          Also, various horror games:

                          The Path is a depiction of a Fae abduction of an entire family. The wolves are different appearances of the same fae (with, presumably, The Big Bad Wolf as its title), grandma's house was a series of distorted memories of a durance, and the forest was an unusual area of the Hedge. the girl in white is a rival releasing her enemies captives. The six sisters are presumably now changelings.

                          The animatronics of FNAF are, arguably, bound- a series of geists who have found a way to merge with machines rather then people. It didn't go quite as well as they planned, and now they are lashing out at the living.

                          Amnesia is the after-effects of a mortal's examinations of an abyssal artefact. The Darkness and Alexander are both intruders drawn to it.

                          Bendy, from bendy and the ink machine, is a geotia summoned to earth. Someone rolled a dramatic failure when doing that.

                          Limbo is some poor kid being dragged into a beast (the spider's) lair. Surprisingly, he is able to overpower and defeat the horror, at which point the chambers start to break down a bit. We've probably got either a powerful beast or a powerful hero in the making here.

                            • Can a Deviant be made by a Slasher? If so, I think this kid qualifies:



                              ​And yes, I mean kid. His pre-pubesant body chemistry reacted rather strangely to performance-enhancing super-drugs. This is what he looks like powered down:
