This vocation is the answer to the super-sleuth in the Mythus Campaign.
This person resorts to myriad abilities in order to solve crimess and prosecute offenders. The role of this OP is very well-defined and can be used in a variety of situations from the bumbling detective to the greatly-assistive private eye. The feasibility of the HP use is, of course dependent on the JM but with a total of 264 base STEEP, it is not unreasonable. This type of persona would be quite helpful, and I find it very adaptable to many situations. To summarize some of the ideas to give this character life, think of archetypal Investigators such as Sherlock Holmes, Columbo, The Harts (of Hart to Hart), Charlie Chan, Ms. Marple, or Murder She Wrote. Many others could also be listed. The main modification ate the addition of information-gathering spell-casting areas of Divination and Fortune Telling, which would be fine and needed additions for a heka active campaign, and accepted methods as part of the means of investigation.
