Mark Stevenson wasn't his birth name, but after swearing that his old self was going to die and slitting his wrists in an interrupted suicide attempt (one that Wyld believes was successful) it is now his name.
In 2009, after researching the mysteries of intoxication, he entered the hedge with over 120 liters of wine to quest for the inner secrets of a long dead mystery cult. He returned after his apotheosis, becoming the current incarnation of Bacchus who himself was an incarnation of Dionysus.
Leads a small cult called "Proud Alcoholics" in drunken orgies.
They say that wine is fine but liquor's quicker, but why hurry? Here, have another drink of wine. Today's vintage tastes better than yesterday's did.
"It is easy to think those of the Pantheon have hidden behind the convenient excuse of mythology. Those that believe such a thing do not realize the strength of character that is required to take on the aspects of divinity and survive. Do not mistake him as a simple drunkard - he is a god." - Cilia
"One of these days, he will either ascend or perish. If he perishes, I call dibs. If he ascends, then I'll eat my hat. You, goblin, fetch me a top hat, I want to look classy if I need to eat it." - Professor Mercury
