All Quiet in Music City
Sons of Ether
The Sons of Ether began as the Electrodyne Engineers, a convention within the Technocracy devoted to studying the magical possibilities of electricity. As their experiments and theories became more wild and incompatible with the Technocracy’s orderly vision of the world, the Technocracy levied more and more sanctions against them until they finally declared all their work fictional and completely unscientific. It was then that the Sons of Ether were born and joined the other Traditions on the Council of Nine. The Etherites study all many of wild theories in Science, and to visit one of their laboratories is like stepping into a science fiction story. They proudly pursue the impossible, even when there are blatant contradictions between their own work and someone else’s. The Etherites were the first to find the problems with the single unified view of Science proposed by the Technocracy, and they celebrate the many different ways to achieve the same effect. Through their varied experiments, the Sons of Ether have become quite adept with manipulating Matter.
The Sons of Ether, although often eccentric, have proven themselves useful to the other Traditions, so most have no real problem with them. Because of their acceptance of different methods and approaches for the same results, the Etherites have a much greater tolerance for the other Traditions than they often have. However, they do have difficulty understanding the Dreamspeakers and Verbena.
