Dr. Herman Cooper
Surgeon at OSHU and apparent head of the Silver Twilight Lodge in Forest Grove. Affable and outgoing, he seems to have a dim view of mysticism in all its forms. He provided the most detail available about the order. In summary: the order was founded as a reaction to the Golden Dawn and the overall rise of spiritualism after the Great War. It is both a parody of mystical orders – think “Flying Spaghetti Monster” vs. Christianity – as well as a group that caters to the fringe in scientific thinking, allowing them to express and peer-review radical theories and notions in an enclosed environment that is simultaneously critical and open. It uses a front organization, ‘The Argent Group’, to monetarily support worthy causes, such as universities and hospitals. Eugenia Taylor was apparently a benefactor, a connection that fast-tracked you into membership.
