WHO is that GUY?

The man who gives Raz the True Psychic Tales or whatever? Why? I've started thinking about it and I can't come to a conclusion... do you think it might be specified later in the future of man?

Hey... that bugged me too! As near as I can tell it was Oleander recruiting children for his diabolical plan.

He was tall and thin. Oh, you know, the guy who gives Raz the comic in his first memory vault.

Hmm. Very suspicious.

You know, I wondered about this myself a while ago. And I think I can say with 97% certainty that that isn't Oleander. The shape of the head is right, but the moustache is slightly off (Oleander's has a single, loose curl at the end, the Shadowy Figure's has a much tighter curl to it. And yes, I did think about this way too much, thanks.), and the figure's just much too tall to be Oleander. Unless he was wearing stilts, for some inexplicable reason.

I've got a theory that it's a Galochio or one of the "many enemies" Raz's father mentioned...someone who has a vested interest in Raz becoming a Psychonaut for some reason (presumably because that would work in their favor, although I have no idea how). Either way, I don't think it's Oleander, whoever it is.

Unless they pull another Jasper. Oh jeez, I hope they don't pull another Jasper. I HAVE thought of the Gelachio theory--it makes more sense, I guess. Somehow.

Jasper was kinda annoying until you realise, this is all inside someones head, pretty much anything can happen.

As for the guy who give Raz the thing, I don't think he's hugely important, but if they did a sequel, they may build on him a bit more.

Sure its important-- that's why Raz ran away! I'd like to see it built on--if not, there's always fanfiction. =D

No, I meant I doubt Schafer had any other purpose for him than to simply be the guy who gave Raz the comic, but if there was a sequel, Tim may build on him.

I agree with you, there. He could've just been some creepy comic-giving maniac.

It could be some wandering psychic who took notice of Raz's powers.

I'm pretty sure it IS Morceau Oleander judging by the mustache(see the brochure Raz is looking at)

Still-- Oleander didn't know anything about Raz during the first cutscene. He was generally shocked by Raz's mental defense. And we all know Oleander can't act.

Perhaps another piece to the Galochio theory. Did any one else notice the Galacios poster in the meat circus? The similarity in names seems a bit suspect, especially since they are using a crystal ball, something typically associated with gypsies and psychics. It's hard to tell in the poster, but in the figment (the first one in the figment viewer) it looks like the central guy has a mustache. Though the poster has them marked as dead.

Also, I'm pretty certain the Aquato's are Raz's family.

Oh, and don't forget this random mustached guy

Weirdness... needs investigation. And Aquatos? That would be ironic!

My theory is Raz's family's favorite power pre-curse was Hydrokinesis. Offering a bit of irony, also some Galochios are no doubt still alive, out to crush Raz's family and circus reputation.

Or some other waterbased psychic power that will undoubtedly become unearthed in a later episode of Raz's story. Like the ability to breath underwater...or hold his breath for ten minutes.

That would be awsome.

Raz's full name is undoubtedly Razputin Aquato. That's his dad in the bottom right.

Holy crap! No denying it this time. That is so Raz's dad. Though he still needs a first name...

I call him Dmitri... it just seems to fit in my mind that a man named Dmitri would have a child named Razputin...

I'm pretty sure that is Raz on the far left of that poster. Notice the large, goggle like eyes.

I think that's him... very hard to see it, for me. But I do see the goggles. Or... something... goggle-esque.

Isn't it odd that one says DEAD and one ALIVE? Is it a sort of wishful thing? Afterall these are poster representations of Raz' family and enemy family, it is possible they are still alive but he was told they were dead just se he wouldn't have to worry... also on the subject of HydroKinesis, if a PsychoNauts 2 was made it HAS to be put in. Why? A temp tattoo told me! It's directions say:

1)Summon Moisture from air or tongue and apply to forehead.

But it all depends on what kind of tattoo it is! If it was a dragon, or some cartoon type looking thing, then ITMUSTBEDESTINY.

The full list of directions are:
1:Summon moisture from air or tongue and apply to forehead.
2:Levitate tattoo and press onto forehead for approximately one minute
3:Telekinetically remove plastic from tattoo
4:Use pyrokinesis to set anyone on fire that makes fun of you for wearing a Psycho-Portal tattoo on your forehead*

*okay, don't REALLY do this but give them a nasty look or something...

It actually said that...
