Tiresias once was a blind prophet in ancient greece. He was blind since birth, so blind in fact, that he could not see his own visions. Over time, he was driven mad by his visions and lived as a hermit far away from society, just another insane old man.
One day, the Power of Beauty visited him and while he couldn't see her, she managed to calm his heart so he could come to accept both his gift and his curse. Through conversations with her he became fascinated by the concept of beauty and before long, her Imperator chose him to become the next Power of Images.

But Ha-Qadosch Berahka intervened. He proposed a fiendish bet and managed to win both the Estate of Images and Tiresias himself shortly after he became a Noble. While service under Berahka was confusing in the beginning, Tiresias managed to settle in and took the surname McDowell in recent years, whenever he ventured into the prosaic world. He still has contact to the Power of Beauty, but the friendship became a double edged sword over time. Tiresias tries to find beauty beyond the visible things, while she pushes the Estate of Beauty towards a purely visual experience.

Not too long ago, something terrible happened. A Deceiver, one of the terrible and beautiful enemies to all of Creation only known as Excrucians, confronted Tiresias. He claimed the visions, who never stopped even after Tiresias became a Noble, are gifts of Harumaph himself and Tiresias chosen to betray Creation. He dared not fight the Excrucian directly, but managed to trap him inside the Infinite Gallery, a painting full of paintings said to connect to all Images that only the Power of Images can enter and leave at will. He keeps this secret from everyone, but knows some day he will have to enter the Gallery again to face the walking blasphemy trapped inside.
