Meet the Synod!

Flimsy/Jack/Justice/Magnus/Simon/Sly/Susan is the founder and leader of Synod. IMPORTANT: If you have any RELIABLE information on the origins or motives of this person, contact us at admin@synod.us as soon as possible.

Diane Heaton enjoys art, games, and podcasting. She is reluctant to discuss her personal life, but appears to have joined Synod in response to some traumatic incident. With the zeal of the convert, she then began devoting nearly all her free time to it, presumably as a form of escapism. Warning: May believe you, the reader, to be a fictional character.

Matt Smith can't remember anything he does or says or thinks, only living moment to moment, making all of his decisions through a haze of vague emotions.

Ashley Sgromo expects you to believe that that's a real surname and take it seriously. An infectious optimist, Ashley can frequently be heard quantifying goals and declaring, "We've got this!" When not re-watching her favorite episodes of the X-Files she can be found working on her many scrapbooks of photos of strangers' children. She wishes she had less in common with her husband.

Vincent Watkins is an old, fat man who lives in a small house with a thousand children. He would appreciate it if you avoided the following topics in conversation with him: India, Indians, Indian food, abolished books of forbidden mystery, sequential acts of observing the same object, personality types, Leonard Richardson, Neil Gaiman, Martin Luther King's speaking prowess, and the inner workings of Vincent's own mind. He has a dog and a cat.

Lewis Powell is wary of several core Synod precepts, and retains membership largely as a means of keeping an eye on the organization. He does so despite a painful awareness that Synod observes him exactly as much as he observes it. Currently, he is attempting to steer Synod towards experimental theater, and away from "whatever else it's trying to be."

Greg Davies is a Real Person. He can frequently be found getting lost in imaginary mazes or playing elaborate board games with other Real People. Greg currently lives in an unspecified location.

Nadia Shaikh has only a peripheral awareness of Synod, but her work as a doctor has made her an essential member of the group nonetheless, as several major projects would have been impossible otherwise. Approach with caution.

Mike Sylvia is also known as Projectyl. This is because if you abbreviate his name as "MiSyl", then it's a poorly spelled version of "missile", and "Projectyl" is a similarly poorly spelled synonym.

He does that kind of thing a lot.

Steve Havelka is one of the authors/inventors of Pokey the Penguin, the first webcomic that every member of Synod read. His hobbies include whimsy, Russian, and giving people the finger (money permitting).

Barry "Viovis" Bletunick makes games, art, and everything in between. Also, the things in between are themselves far off to one of the ends, because it's all a circle. If you have trouble figuring out where you are or where you're going, ask Barry, and you'll be in for a whale of a time.
