John Addams dreaded the day as much as he knew it could not be avoided. Over the last few months, he observed the slow gathering of other scions in Washington with a sense of foreboding. When the jotun attacked and the scions were thrown together, he ran to join the fray even as he knew it meant the war against the Titans had finally found them all.

He received his birthright as an eight-year-old boy, the only time he ever met his divine parent. On his birthday, he was given a series of nested boxes, which, once he understood how to open them, contained the Book of Thoth. His father admonished him to ‘read, and understand’ – a command which John took to mean all books to which he had access.

John carries a silken rope, infused with legend, that has played the role of Gleipnir in the binding of a fenrir.
