Joseph Emmanuel Wedder, The accomplished philosopher #60 [Keystone - ENG 1]


Motto: Never talking about oneself is a very distinguished hypocrisy
Group: High Society
Teaser: A stern and, most of the time, haughty man, Joseph Emmanuel was nevertheless always susceptible to the flattery of those who crowded avidly to listen to his long discussions, or rather monologues regarding ethics and politics. Few know him intimately: it is known that in his youth a professor at the University of Heidenberg had a strong influence on him; some proclaimed this relationship as unseemly in the academic environment, but before public modesty could express indignation, the professor tragically perished falling from one of the highest windows of the lecture hall. The tragic event left a profound mark in young Wedder, but the event also coincided with his cultural flowering: a few months later his most appreciated essay was issued, read, criticized, and finally published again and translated throughout Europe.
Following the success of his works, he received a prestigious chair at the University of Friborg and the reputation of a distinguished and highly esteemed gentleman, guest of Lord Scarborough and of other men of genius and power. Today he enjoys the esteem of several politicians, who feel flattered by his words when he calls them men who are not afraid to do what is necessary for the good of the nation. Yet not only praises are uttered towards him, and though the dignified Wedder appears to be indifferent to criticism as an umbrella is to the tedious autumn rain, there is something elusive in his eyes, a tension that does not leave him. His malicious detractors claim he cultivates a morbid fascination to judgments pronounced about himself, his infatuated admirers reply with faithful simplicity that the professor's genius is like a perpetual motion machine that could not stop even if he wanted to. Neither the former nor the latter, however, have an idea of who he is when he is in company only of himself, an inkwell and an clean sheet of paper.

Relations: He's travelling with his only servant, Lena Reinhart, whom he is very fond of. As a child he played with Ashley Wetmore and they have not met again ever since. He had a close correspondence with Arthur Edward Waite. He was associating with Friedrich Gunter Kroyer during his university studies, before Kroyer left on his travels.
