One of the names passed down within the Gefährten. The Ascendant’s duty has, always, been to develop the means to deliberately create new metahumans. No holder of the title has ever been successful, yet, in spite of extensive human experimentation. The previous Ascendant was responsible for the incident which created Chayot, Dearheart and Slough and killed more than a hundred people – most of them children – besides. The new one may well be worse.
