OF THE THYROID (TREEFROG)
|THE TIME LORD - |
MASK OF THE THYROID
UNDER POSITIVE ATTENTION
The mask associated with the Treefrog is the Gambler - a highly adaptive mask that is good at altering itself to new conditions. This does not mean that the person is a shape-shifter or actor, just that their behaviour will be riskier - they will happily go and meet new people and are very good at 'fitting' in to new groups and adjusting their social norms accordingly. They will fit to the group as opposed to trying to make the group fit to them. This drive to ''evolve'' is very harmonious with the nature of the Treefrog and its travels. However, the desire to continuously 'fit in' means that new groups must be found so that the 'fitting in' can continue - thus the accompanying desire to travel.
|THE DEMON - MASK |
OF THE THYROID UNDER
Under the influence of positive attention, this mask will distort to the Timelord. Under negative attention it will distort to the Demon. In real terms then the behaviour of the Gambler who recieves too much positive attention will be to simply stop attempting to gather attention and sit on what they have (Timelords have metabolisms which do not require as much attention as other characters in order to maintain the integrity of the mask) - i.e. their attention metabolism will slow down, they will be quiet, perhaps withdrawn into themselves. Under negative attention, the distorted mask will probably attempt to make Shards by causing drama in the group, possibly organising from the shadows.
The Treefrog is associated with the experience of the moment - using the diagram we see that negative attention drives them to 'analysis of the moment' and positive attention to changing the future. Again, like the other central characters it is possible to force alternate moves, i.e. to make negative attention produce 'reducing the future' and positive to 'reaction to the moment' but only under favourable conditions (atmosphere, catalysts, etc).
