Trail of Cthulhu: Eternal Lies
A professor with occult interests
Dr. Marvin Derrikson is the uncle of Lord Edward Homeward and a tenured professor at Oxford University in England. His background is the Humanities, teaching courses on comparative religion, history and occult rituals, and is a noted expert on ancient pagan rites.
Dr. Derrikson is often morose, preferring to spend time with his books and papers rather than spending time with people, stating that he much prefers the conversational abilities of Homer and Dr. John Dee than anyone today living.
He regularly corresponds with his nephew, Edward, signing each letter with ‘The Lord is my Light,’ the motto of his alma mater and employer, Oxford.
