Danilo Escorda

Danilo Escorda is a recent engineering graduate and was recently hired by a defense contractor for a special assignment that turned out to be a lot more exciting than he thought. It's not Dan's first run with the paranormal, either - he's been hearing Filipino folk tales of ghosts and reports of Catholic miracles from his parents for as long as he can remember. He privately follows a different strain of Catholicism, with a more mystical bent. Recently, he was given a field commission as an LT in MJ12, as well as a crash course in MJ12 operations. MJ12 forces are running short of experienced and trustworthy staff, paving the way for such an unorthodox promotion.

Player: OmegaPaladin
Minor Arcana: Jack of Wands
