Jernaugh is a character in Torment: Tides of Numenera.
Background[edit | edit source]
This old man's skin is covered in make-up painstakingly drawn to resemble dark stone. His eyes widen briefly as he notices you and his face and neck hardens into actual obsidian for a moment. Then he smiles and nods at you, his features mobile once more. Jernaugh and his explorer friends excavated the ancient chiurgical center and figured out how to reactivate the chiurgical drones, which now answer to Jernaugh alone. They all tested out the processes. He's the only one left alive. The Chirurgical drones they tested - on themselves, to prevent flaying customers on day one - which turned out a wise move. After the drones sliced his partners apart due to poor coding, he became the sole proprietor of the parlor with a notable track record of no fatalities... In the past months. His own modifications merely rendered him perfectly honest, 100% of the time.
Jernaugh has a reputation as being an honest man, and he IS... on the surface. He is forthcoming about certain topics to the point of being comedic. He claims this is because he underwent surgery in the parlor, but this is a lie. His "honesty" is a cover for his involvement in the Jagged Dream. His stone-shifting tendencies reflect who he really is: Obsidian for fear, quartz for lies. Another side note: he may have a quasi-religious view of the Iron Wind.
