Eugene Epond (who goes by the stage name "Gene E.") is a bard in the Brightwwater campaign. He is an accomplished musician and seamster.

Life in Brightwater[edit | edit source]

Gene E. was born and raised in Brightwater. At a very young age, Gene's father, a doppelganger of unknown name, left never to be seen again. But he left behind two possessions: a book titled "Aladdin" with a bright blue genie on the cover and a good old-fashioned six string. This was his first introduction to the world of music.

He was raised by his mother, Doris (a human), with some help from the rest of the town of course. One of the largest influences in Gene's life was the late, great Brendan Fraser. It was Brendan who taught Gene guitar and flute and was the only father figure Gene has ever had.

He led a fairly normal life. He went to the local schoolhouse, received training from Brendan Fraser, and was generally a very happy and energetic kid. When he was 10, Gene started playing regularly in the Bright Beer Saloon to help out his mother with some of the expenses. He learned to sow and weave so he could make costumes for his acts and it turned into a lucrative side gig. When he was 16, Gene decided it was time to leave the nest. So he packed up and moved to the farthest place he felt comfortable, the Bright Beer Saloon. Ever since, he's been playing nearly nightly for meals and a room.

On Fridays he plays an extra special show that Gene calls "Friday Funday". Friday Funday is a one man show that Gene improvises every week, playing as himself as well as changing into different people from the town to create a smattering of characters. It's a well known secret that the more you tip, the more likely you are to show up as a character in one of Gene's Friday Funday shows. And if you don't tip.... well you might just become the villain of the story.

The Adventure[edit | edit source]

One day Brendan came to Gene with a proposal: go on an adventure with this unopenable jar, it might show the path to Ta-Shedet. Well Ta-Shedet just so happens to be Gene's only lead on where to find a doppelgang (group of doppelgangers) and possibly his dad. So Gene whole heartedly agreed.

Through this adventure, Gene has made great friends but lost his closest. Someday Gene and Brendan will be reunited, whether it is in this life or the next.

Gene's Notable Impersonations[edit | edit source]

As a changeling, Gene has practiced becoming other individuals over and over again, but there are some more popular than others. It must be noted that Gene can only transform into individuals he has seen before and can only mimic an individuals voice if he's heard them speak for about a minute. The following is a list of notable transformations and impersonations that Gene has performed.

"The Ballad of Brendan Fraser (Brendan Fraser Forever)"[edit | edit source]

An original song. It's got a chug chugachug chugachug strumming pattern. Sounds great with walk ups to G (Em - F/G - G) and walk downs to Em (Am - G - F/G - Em)

Starts off somber, but it gets exciting.

Em            G
When I was a boy
C          Am                  Em
Just about three or four years old
I had no dad
C                Am
He'd run out and left us years ago
Em G C Am Em
Em               G
But along came a man
C             Am
Righteous and just in all he did
Em               G
He showed me the way
C              Am
To stand up to bullies and say no way
Em         G
He said to me
C                 Am
"Gene, you watch out for that tree"
Em           G
And so today
C                        Am
We sing for him words of praise
Em D C Am
Em          D
Brendan Fraser
C                       Am     Em
You are the light of my life
Em             D
Burning like a braser
C           Am              Em
Your love illuminates the night
Em                D
Everyday will be sunny
C                          Am               Em
Cuz you know we won't turn you into The Mummy
Em                          D
This town will no longer be hassled
C                               Am                          Em
By the Redbrands because your memory will leave them bedazzled
Em                            D
And we'll take care of Barb, your shrub
C                       Am           Em
We'll be like doctors maybe even wear scrubs
What you've taught me will be written on my soul a very special part
So I guess in a way, you've given me an Inkheart
We'll follow this quest you gave us with all our worth
Even if it leads us on a Journey to Center of the Earth
And I know someday we'll be together but for now I'll sing this song
and remember Brendan Fraser forever
