Name: Thomas Brennan

Appearance: Thomas is a rough figure. He's tall and well built, standing at 6' 3" and weighing 188 lbs. He has a handsome visage, with dark brown hair and a moss green eye, and a plain black eyepatch that covers where his left eye used to be. His typical attire isn't fancy at all. Plain t-shirts, an old leather bomber jacket, worn jeans (sometimes old military fatigues), and combat boots.

Personality: Split in two. Most of the time, Thomas is timid, passive and a bit shy. His mind is stuck in the days when he was young, an artist who had adapted to bullying and a hard home life by shutting himself away and releasing it into his art. And then, there is the hidden old man, which carries most of his worst memories. This persona is dark and twisted, dismissive and others and a supreme survivor. While he isn't completely cruel or evil in this part of his split, he does tend closer to dominance here. And it is always this persona that flies into frenzies.

Character Name: Margherita Carrara

Appearance: Rita is a lovely young woman of average height who appears to be in her early twenties, usually dressed in fashionable professional attire. Her brown hair and brown eyes, her pale skin with a hint of olive, and even the shape of her face are very Italian, not that she'd suggest anything else. When she dresses up she could easily be mistaken for a model with her graceful neck, slender figure and elegant posture, and she's done a bit of clothed modeling when one of the local artists she features at the gallery is really insistent.

Personality: While Rita is always polite and has a smile for most everyone she's in contact with, there's a certain reservedness in her attitude; she's not timid exactly, just not the life of the party either. She's well spoken and usually has a good deal of information on any of the subjects in her wheelhaus (fine arts, local artists, business, international import/export), but lacks much to offer on most other topics and tends to just listen or nod politely. Since most of her interaction is usually at By the Sea, an art gallery featuring local artists, this doesn't hinder her too much.
Status: Ice pack vs migraine... fight!

Character Name: Leesa Liddy
right-aligned image

Actual Age: 41, 5 post-embrace. Looks in her mid-30s

Actual Age: She is a white mousy-brown-haired woman. She is short, around 5' 2", and on the pear-shaped side. She has wide brown eyes and short hair worn permanently mussy. She is usually dressed in business-professional attire, with sensible slacks, flats, and a comfortable blazer. She is not unattractive, but she clearly puts little stock into her appearance.

Personality: Leesa is a dynamo, and the stereotype of a type-A personality. She seems to constantly be in motion. When she talks, she paces. When she sits, she fidgets and her foot is permanently wiggling and tapping. She speaks emphatically and voluminously, with a cadence that pulls the listener in. Despite her slight build, with her constant motion and overabundant energy, she takes up more space in a room than you'd expect. She can be combative in disagreement, but she is effusive when she thinks that you're a comrade-in-arms (against whatever she happens to currently be up-in-arms about).

Name: Alec TobiasT Thorne

Appearance: Alec certainly doesn't dress for fashion, nor to show off some form of status. If he is wearing something, it was chosen for either practicality or sheer personal preference. This is not to say he dresses in rags, or walks around filthy, as Alec does do his best to present a clean appearance. After all the somewhat worn and outdated leather overcoat often found adorning him falls into the latter category, something he picked up over forty years ago and only survives to this day because of prudent care and cleaning. His dark strands of hair are rather long, and often kept back and bound somewhere over his back if only to keep it from getting in his dark blue eyes when reading. Why he doesn't simply cut it is either a matter he can't be bothered to get around to or perhaps it is something that will remain a mystery.

Personality: While Alec does possess and indeed often display the stereotypical bookish knowledge hoarding mind commonly found in his clan, it is more often than not his honest eagerness for that which he pursues, whatever that may happen to be on any single night, that sets him apart from his fellow kindred. It might not always be openly visible in his expression or body language, unless you happen to just be good at reading people, but it is there in some form or another regarding whichever task or hobby the warlock happens to be undertaking that particular evening. That said, when something unexpected interrupts his focus it can very easy for him to get annoyed at the cause behind it. This feeling could perhaps even lead to outbursts that common sense would normally prevent, such as against ones elders. Just an example, one randomly drawn from the hat, of course.

Name: Jordan Cross-Ghannam

Appearance: Not quite six feet but close enough to brag about it, Jordan is broad-shouldered and toned of muscle in a way that screams regular gym attendance rather than lifetime of labor. His off-dark skin and pale blue eyes speak of his ancestry's racial intermingling, but his features do little to help nail down the genealogy. Adding to this are the the odd streaks of blonde in his otherwise black hair. He keeps his beard trimmed close in the chinstrap style, his clothing always a bit fancier than the situation demands, and has an obvious fondness for diamond and gold and silver accessories to flesh out his wardrobe.

Personality: As much as he tries to present himself as the studied businessman, there is always a hint of playboy in his behavior. He lingers too long on scents he enjoys or figures he favors, though this rarely seems to interfere with his acumen in financial affairs. There is an ease to his behavior in most social situations, a natural talker who feasts on attention. Often unflappable, he takes most things in stride and rarely rises to easy bait but once riled he can easily dig his heels in and become his own worst enemy. Keen-minded and classically educated, he is a child of the early 90's tech explosion and can speak voluminously on such topics.

Name: Avery
Apparent Age: Early/Mid Twenties

Appearance: Avery is fairly average looking, dark haired and dark eyed, with pale skin that has only gotten paler since his Embrace. He’s slight, barely 5’8”, and slim - he would be outright scrawny if not for the lean muscles of his fencer's frame - but moves with a subtle, predatory grace that adds a hint of threat to his otherwise unimpressive appearance. In terms of fashion, he flirts with the line between hipster and punk, with a fondness for loose t-shirts and leather 'biker' jackets (that have clearly never been anywhere near an actualy biker) paired with skinny jeans and laced boots (although never Doc Martens, no matter how stylish they may be; he hates the sensation of having bricks strapped to his feet that he gets from trying to walk around on those inordinately thick rubber soles). He also has a secret love for the loose, billow-sleeved white shirts worn by the fencers of yesteryear - a style since popularised in every movie that could get away with adding it to the costume designs - and occassionally wears them when he will be interacting with older, more conservative Vampires, who might find the style nostalgic. Plus, dressing like an nineteenth century fencer sets very clear expectations and helps disguise his youth, both of which are helpful when dealing with traditionally-minded members of the Camarilla.

Personality: Avery was quite young when he turned, and his time as a Fledgeling was essentially a fifteen-year enforced extension of childhood, so while he's not exactly immature, he tends to lack the innate restrained reserve that so many older vampires develop after decades of politicking. He can turn it on when he needs to, playing the stone-faced bodyguard or the aloof Degenerate snob, but his natural attitude is more spirited - some might even say chipper, but a better word would be sanguine. Even when he's deadly calm and laser-focused, spoiling for a fight, it is undeniably the moment of silence before a storm, rather than true serenity.
