Juan Espinoza: Class 5 Full-Roaming Vapor

As Halloween approaches, and the veil between worlds grows wan, threadbare, and permeable, Cooper realizes that we can serve the spirit, spook, and creature population better if we understand them from a Goal-Directed perspective. In service of this we present a short series of Halloween personas. Today’s persona is Juan Espinoza.


Juan was a senior conductor for the Next Stage Railway in 1889, when a demonic cow on the track derailed the train, killing all aboard and decapitating him in the wreckage.

How we can help Juan:

  • Use mechanical controls to match his 19th-century mental model and skill set.
  • Make things accessible so they are easy to detect and operate without eyes, ears, or the ability to make physical contact with objects.
  • Support multiple languages.

Next persona Alexi Devers: Lycanthrope
Spectral investigator: Chris Noessel
