So...how do I start this? Perhaps with a quote from the very first line of the first entry of the blog doubling as a link to it? Formerly one of the three original Sages picked by Robert Sagel. The Sages are three individuals who experimented with ways to contend with being stalked by Slender Man. Shaun's method of testing was to use himself as bait while he tried to discover behavior patterns and repellants. As a result, Shaun had many direct confrontations that did not always end favorably for him.Eventually, when the other two Sages either perished (Jay) or went into hiding (Robert), the title of Sage was passed onto three new individuals Zero, Amelia, and Maduin. Shaun, being the only one of the Sages still remaining, was retitled Guide and was put to the task of mobilizing and coordinating the new Sages at their early stages.His haunting began sometime in 2009. Unlike M, Shaun had the advantage of prior knowledge having been recorded, which told him to flee and that Slender Man would kill his friends and family if he didn't. Shaun was fortunately Genre Savvy enough to do just that before Slendy "infected" his family. He left everything behind, even a girlfriend he was close enough to that he had entertained thoughts of marriage and a life together. His blog is unique in that he is one of the few teenagers (18 when the blog started) to play a significant role in the mythos. Also notable is the lack of a dragon like totheark to torment Shaun as a secondary antagonist.His current whereabouts are unknown, as the latest update came in November, 2010, when the wham episodes were hitting the slendering community hard and Jay reemerged on Marble Hornets with a new entry. His fate is still unknown, but given what happened in that time, the chances that this and this are the last that will ever be heard from him are good. He is back.Has nothing to do with mic checks.
