Fear of...

Stagnation, Repetition, Routine, Leading a meaningless existence





First Appearance

Convention of the 24

The Constant Wanderer is the first portrayal of the Fear of Stagnation, repetition, and leading a pointless existence. They are a major character in The Four Roses Verse where they are portrayed as the most sympathetic of all the Fears. Originally a human being, the Constant Wanderer was transformed into a Fear after enduring countless cycles of death and resurrection.


Very little is known about the Constant Wanderer past besides the fact they were used as part of a treaty between the Fears and an unnamed group of entities. This pact allowed at least one human to travel through the Fears domains unscathed. However, the terms of pact never said that they had to let it leave, so they would prevent them from escaping by having the last Fear it visited during each cycle, The Wooden Girl, kill them. The Archangel would resurrect The Constant Wanderer and remove their memories, restarting the cycle all over again.


In most stories, the Constant Wanderer manifests as a human being of indeterminate gender with auburn hair and ragged, lopsided clothes. It wears an eye-patch over its right eye, and in its left eye there is an infinity symbol where the pupil should be. It usually also speaks without using contractions.

The Wanderer appears to be able to replay the past of anything that has happened in a particular location using highly detailed illusions that tend to loop themselves. When asked why they do this, the Constant Wanderer usually replies that it doesn't know, but they still do it because - as they claim - this is their nature.
