I guess this is a matter of interpretation. I'd say that leaving the game
erases all state associated with you, because "demerits", "brownie
points", and "location" are all properties of players, and you are no
longer a player. If you rejoin, you presumably get the same deal anyone
gets when they join: a blank slate with all variables set to their initial
Rule 44 explicitly states that leaving the game destroys your
servant. But if you join the game again, you presumably get a new
servant, because the same rule states that every player has a
servant. You can even name it after your previous servant if you like.
