The Keweenaw Freehold
Jeremy Singer is on the administrative staff at MTU. His official title is Chief Administrative Assistant and his job description is both vague and circular, however he always seems busy. This is because the only really important part of Jeremy’s job is that he’s on the Admissions board, and has a lot of pull over their decisions. Whether this is through political machinations or enchantments is unclear, however he uses his position to ensure that any newly arrived changelings that might find their way out of the hedge will have a place to sleep and can begin to reincorporate themselves into both their old societies and the new Freehold with relative smoothness.
Those fortunate enough to escape into Jeremy Singer’s custody, while technically students, may find themselves enrolled for such wondrous classes as “Introduction to 15th century Agrarian Etiquette”, a humanities class that is both impossible to register for without specific professor permission, and applicable to no major offered at the school. These classes have no formal meeting time, and in fact only serve to fill out the student’s credit requirements, so as to offer the illusion of normality. Due to some well placed creative accounting, it appears that these students are paying tuition and fees entirely out of pocket, while in reality most of the funds simply get written off as scholarships from the university.
The man himself is elderly, with thinning black hair, gaunt, wrinkled features and a penchant for warm brown corduroy suits which may have never been in fashion at all. Normal students may detect a faint smell of licorice around his person at all times. Changelings will perceive him as one of the Wizened, thin strands of black hair disheveled and uncontrollable on top of his head, long, skinny arms sticking out long past the ends of his suit sleeves and the strong scents of anise and gingerbread in the area around him.
