Reba Jay

Reba Jay is a loud, potty-mouthed bounty hunter and mercenary. Sometimes she is trying to get the reward money for Jake’s capture and sometimes she’s working for a force opposing the knights. Whatever the case, she’s always willing to stop what she’s doing and beat up the knights for a little bit. Currently, Reba works for Mayor Spencer Woodell as his personal bodyguard.

Recording In: First session, second session

Status: Minor character

mayor spencer woodell

Mayor Spencer Woodell has been the mayor of New Mercy for over 100 years, but appears pretty young for a guy that old. There’s some theories about this, but the most prominent one seems to be that he’s a vampire. Who can say? He seems to be close friends with Cam Seru and is so determined to cover up information from the Shinrins that he framed the knights for bombing a building to destroy evidence.
