Fraud Investigations Division FID – Identity theft, counterfeiting though digital currency is more popular now, socomputer fraud, insurance fraud, bank fraud, fraud fraud, etc.
Organized Crime Division OCD – Involved in the secret black ops world behind tabletop gaming, stopping grognards from summoning demons at GenCon behind closed doors and doctoring the real spells out of 2e books. I made all that up.

He is capable of reaching the full range of powers in his secondary talent all Orders and both First and Second Order powers in his preferred tertiary talent choose one when you purchase this Asset. However, the Experience cost to manifest powers is steep: Lucid Dreamer 3 Prerequisite: Through access to some level of consciousness, he can bend his dreams to his will.
