The Many Faces of Ephraim Ladd

According to the Interdimensional Rumor Mill, some things never change, even across dimensions. Someone, somewhere, decided to catalog all the different versions of Ephraim Ladd in a Rumor Registry, but today the version from IF-60.881 is playing. Here’s what the rumors say...

Ephraim Ladd is an angelic astronaut, usually seen clad in his spacesuit with a cracked helmet. Ladd's wings protrude from his suit, and a light shines around the helmet (although his features remain obscured behind the cracked glass).

Ephraim Ladd has aspects of the "Team Dad," a friendly caretaker and guardian of other Worms. Eph has a knack for knowing just the right thing to say and do. Some swear that peering closely into his visor will seem to reveal the face of whoever would be most calming to that person in this time. Otherwise, Ladd tends to be a quiet but friendly presence around the Wormhole.

Ephraim has no memory of where he came from originally - all he can recall is drifting away from a space mission, lost and disoriented. When he recovered his senses, he became away of his new angelic personage, which allowed a speedy return home.

On the rare occasion that Ladd removes his helmet, he is observed to be a full biblical-style angel, with many, many eyes. However, he remains a reassuring presence, despite his unusual appearance.
