Agent Mulder
rating: +1+x

Basic Information

The Agent Mulder (sometimes also called the Agent Cooper) is the investigator who believes in pretty much everything. This can range from having an open mind, up to bisociation, syncretism, or even a certain amount of gullibility.

They are often a Government Agent or Detective, and frequently are paired with a partner that fits the Agent Scully trope.

Things The Mulder Almost Certainly Believes In:


2. TV: X-Files - starring Agents Mulder and Scully
3. TV: Twin Peaks - starring Agent Cooper

Game and Story Use

  • This sort of character fits best in settings with some sort of Masquerade hiding the truth from the public eye.
    • In a setting where everyone knows monsters and magic exist, there's not much point to having your primary characterization be "I believe in monsters and magic".
  • This character type also benefits from a Wander The Earth structure - too much weirdness in one place can be hard to believe, unless it's due to a Hellmouth or Weirdness Magnet.
    • Speaking of Weirdness Magnets, in Twin Peaks, two different characters told Agent Cooper that he brought the evil with him. Such a character could be fun to play. You believe in all these crazy things because they happen near you, but rarely if ever do they happen in when you're not around.

Building This Character


  • Probably a high-level character. Especially if he's without a support network. The more of the agency that believes and backs The Mulder, the less he individually needs to be a bad ass.
