I was just reading a Q&A with Nathan Fillion (of Firefly fame), and it got me to thinking about the fact I've had a variety of RPG character's I'm rather proud of for some reason, so rather than bug people about them in person, I thought I'd write them up here for posterity (which also doesn't want to hear about my character, I'm sure).more...
- Black Howl, a Metis Get of Fenris in a Werewolf: the Apocalypse campaign. He was designed as a combat monster, but he more a bit confused, as he was essentially a walking Ouija board that spirits could take over quite easily. One time he channeled a pattern spider, which allowed the pack to find out an important plot point while being simultaneously creeped out by talking with a being reminiscent of the old Eliza computer program.
- Synth, a character I've used in a couple of brief cyberpunk campaigns. While he resembles the typical mirror-shades and leather stereotype, he has a couple of interesting twists. First, he's a illegal drug designer, and as a result alternates between scientific inquiry, bloodthirsty commerce, and club life. Secondly, his only cybernetic upgrade is a set of retractable fingerblades he keeps scrupulously concealed; there is literally no one alive who has seen them in use. His first outing involved him being kidnapped and tortured by a former rival, which directly led him to the formulation of a new drug. His second outing involved him being given crash training in parapsychology and acupuncture prior to a raid on a corporate research space station that was theoretically investigating psionics, but which turned out to be a decoy. A very colorful career overall.
