Son of Prince Osric and his wife, the Lady Stheile.
Hagen is the eldest known grandchild of Oberon. A childhood friend and later bitter enemy of his aunt Erica, Hagen is also the second-eldest surviving bearer of Osric’s Curse (after his grandmother Cymnea Venway). He has spent a very long life fighting the Weirmonken and wandering shadow, as his sojourns in Amber have always been tarnished by his feud with Erica.
|Power||15||Osric’s Curse. Hagen’s vampire forms: scary-face vampire (prime), human, dire wolverine, cloud of bats (>2000), freaking huge man-bat, humboldt squid, nosferatu shadow.|
|Shadow||11||Golkonda. Personal Shadow, controlled access, controlled destiny, guardians. A dirigible Shadow with a map in the shape of a fast clipper, a stark granitic mountain range at its prow. Its inhabitants are the descendants of the Kurultai who attacked Kashfa. They have made their peace with Hagen and he with them: they call him Eldest, and he calls them his children.|
|The Pallid Mask||8||Psychic barrier. Named & numbered forms. Danger sense. A full head-covering hood, its obsidian-eyed gaze blank and pitiless as the sun, made of the petrified? ossified? lignified? flayed face and scalp of a slain demigod. It divides the psychic universe into two: an inside and an outside. The two parts do not connect. Psychic touch, Trump or mind-sorcery do not cross. Neither do empathy or intuition. The Pallid Mask’s wearer assumes the socio-moral stance of a psychopath or gamergate believer. The builder of the mask attempted to compensate for the loss of intuition by giving the mask a sense for danger, which it displays to its wearer via a kind of HUD.|
