Comment: I ******* hate the atmosphere of the conversations here on these forums
here's a premise of a new game: a powerful, experienced (10th level?) being, based out of a Millennium Tree, is recruiting 4-5 4th level psychic characters (at least minor psychic abilities) from around the globe to fight supernatural evils in various places on Rifts Earth. The hope is the get the characters prepared/trained for an impending demon invasion (Minion Wars).

Who do you see as the recruiter/mentor/trainer NPC to the players?

At some point in the game, the players will learn that there are other groups of characters also training in the same manner in different locations/trees, each group has it's own mentor/trainer, so I need a few ideas.

You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back

A millennium druid would seem to be the obvious choice. I think a dragon, demi-god, or mind melter would also be appropriate. Maybe a demi-god millennium druid with super psionics?

Contact me if you're looking for games in Reno, Nevada.

Which game? Im gonna assume Rifts as Millenium trees are only in Rifts and PFRPG.

Cyber knights ofc! Mentoring in the ways of becoming a cyber knight - its what they do!

Or a Chiang Ku dragon - teaches the apprentice to fight and grants them tattoos.

Rifter 52 Cannibal Magic
Rifter 55 The Ancestral Mystic P.C.C.
Rifter 59 The Lopanic Games adventure "The Lion, the Ditch & the Warlock". Illustrations to this adventure can be found here.
Rifter 71 & 72 Double Issue Ninjas & Superspies adventure "On a Wing & a Prayer"
Rifter 80 Masters Unlimited

I think anything that supports and respects natural order and life fits, as demons and devils are basically the antithesis of that.

Getting into specifics, I like the druid or the knight. I myself made a godling druid (druid occ with additional earth warlock magic) who granted the players some help. She didn't mentor them, but she's been a great ally.

I like the Chaing-Ku Dragon as mentors.

Also True Atlanteans. I use an Atlantean Drifter that drops in on my current group now and then. Seems to work well for my purposes.
