What is the story of the aclaimed author, Ballast McGee ?
originally there was going to be a 4th main character, and i believe his design was for that? but when onorhant came around jay needed mercs and that character was in the list and jay ended up using it
then, during a break, faust points out this character and does The Voice and the “hey guuuuurl”. and when he later speaks, they kinda interpret it as. jay making fun of faust.
even later, matt blanks on the name of markus’ Rival Author, and jay mentioned that matt Never Blanks On Names, and somehow “ballast mcgee” is what comes out of his mouth. which sure is a name
and then it all comes together during the Reveal in Gods Are Gone, although ballast’s in-game backstory is because jay asked matt what he remembered about the villain in deck of disasters and he remembered BASICALLY nothing
