Name:Einar - An Extractor
Birthdate:May 14
“We are an impossibility in an impossible universe.” ~ Ray Bradbury

Einar is what he likes to call a ‘second generation’ founder of dream-sharing. Which is to say he was one of the first test subjects and he took to it like a fish to water.

After his training he went rogue in the worst way, became an extractor of a different sort, not just of ideas, or of secrets, but of dreams. Dreams that he would then turn around and sell to the highest bidder, usually other extractors, other architects, the ones that can’t dream on their own anymore.

“The Undiscovered Country" of the imagination--that vast territory of ideas, concepts, notions and conceits where the stories you now hold were born.” ~ Ray Bradbury

No one really knows when he became ‘Uncle’ Einar, but he is everyone’s ‘Uncle’ even though no one really knows where to find him, or how. For the most part he’s talked about like a ghost among his own kind, an unlikely bogeyman. Stories are passed around, places to leave word for him, certain areas of the mass shared dreamspace to leave signs for him, like hobo sigils of old.

During his own training he managed to stride confidently along the fine line between fearless and reckless, always willing to go deeper, always willing to be the first into a new construct, always willing to improvise long after the others pulled out.

“If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.” ~ Ray Bradbury

Some people say he’s been to limbo a dozen times over the years, and has lived to tell about it, some people say that he might as well have created it, which he laughs about, he doesn’t have any such delusions of grandeur. He likes to say that he’s a simple man who enjoys simple pleasures: Fine cigars, fine wine, and fine young women. Fine young men too, when the mood strikes.

Everyone in the business today has probably met him once or twice along the road, though more than likely they never knew it. He’s good at what he does, and he’ll find you if he knows you need him.

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” ~ Ray Bradbury

Einar is an Inception-verse Original Character. The ideas he brings with him belong to Nolan and co, and Djimon Hounsou provides the face. The name and much of his bio is borrowed from ideas by Ray Bradbury. No disrespect, slander or libel is intended and no profit is being made from this journal. Muse, mun, and PB are all well over 18.
