Cast of characters

For PCs and NPCs - all the personalities that make the cast for our story.


Below is the family tree. PCs are in bold. Deceased family members are noted with a (d), instead of an age.

Name: Jedidiah William "Billy" White
Place in the family: Nephew of Bernice. His father was her brother, who always resented Bernice's wealth and success while his branch of the family struggled to survive off the land. Too proud to ask for help, but too stubborn to quit being angry, he also made poor choices, and wound up losing the land and house that had been passed on to his son. Billy never knew that he was, technically, squatting, and the bank never bothered to enforce its claim on a worthless, unsellable plot of land in the mountains...until oil was discovered. Now, what should have been Billy's salvation was little more than cruel mockery, as the bank had reason to eject Billy from the family plot. Things got worse for Billy after he shot up the bank in retaliation. Fortunately, it was at night (after a spell at the local watering hole), so nobody was inside to get hurt, but Billy still had to leave the area with little more than the clothes on his back.

High concept: Down on his luck hillbilly.
Trouble: Bit of a temper, and a slight drinking problem. Also, recently homeless.
Aspect 1: Simple man, angry and confused about being in a complicated situation.
Aspect 2: Loves to read, and was a regular at the library. Unabashed fan of Mark Twain.
Aspect 3: Comes from the side of the family most won't talk to or about.

Stunts
Stunt One: Because I was raised in a rough, rugged, brawling environment, I get a +2 when I Forcefully attack when in a fist fight.
Stunt Two: Because I am well-read, once per game session I can recall a random bit of information about a topic or subject.
Stunt Three: Because I am stubborn, I get a +3 to resist the effects of a skill that changes my mood or disposition (Deceive, Provoke, etc.)

Skills
Great (+4) - Crafts
Good (+3) - Fight, Will
Fair (+2) - Physique, Provoke, Shoot
Average (+1) - Deceive, Drive, Lore, Notice

Career and hobbies: Billy did odd jobs as they came up, including repair work, laborer, and landscaping. His hobbies are hunting, reading, and drinking.
Immediate family: Billy was engaged, but his Catherine, his fiancee', died of heart disease. He never really 'got back up on the horse' after that. Jed has no children. His father, Frank, died recently, and his mother Mary died when Billy was 12.

Possible issues: Billy has his work cut out for him if he's going to mend his family's part of the rift. He inherited all his father's bitterness toward Bernice, despite never having actually met her. (He actually has met her, but he was a baby at the time and doesn't remember.) Conversely, he's angry with his father for losing the land and house. So now he needs Bernice's money, though Pride is telling him he doesn't, and will struggle with sincerity due to his monetary crisis, conflicting emotions, and lack of personal connection to most of the family. Basically, he doesn't even know these people, is fully aware that most of them consider his branch of the family to be hillbilly losers, and yet is expected to genuinely reconcile with them in order to save himself.

Name: James Anderson "J.A." Smith, Ph.D.

High Concept: Love-starved, isolated overachiever.
Position in family: Oldest son of Bernice, younger brother of Honey Bea
Trouble: Cool, distant, and self-assured. Lacks empathy. Believes he did everything he was supposed to do and doesn't understand why he's unhappy and alone.
Aspect 1: Loves his daughter to death, is heartbroken over their estrangement, is cultured and urbane. Dreams of marrying a younger woman with children to be a father again.

Career and hobbies: Northwestern BA, Ph.D. in Economics from Stanford Graduate School of Business. Winner of the John Bates Clark Medal. Former full professor at Chicago, now holds an endowed chair at a smaller state flagship university. Was the youngest state chess champion in state history, seldom plays now. Enjoys travel, reading, tennis, cooking, fencing.

Immediate family: Divorced, one child (Rowan). On civil terms with ex-wife. Almost got remarried once, but she left him, claiming he "didn't love her enough."

Possible issues:
- Resentful of domineering, unappreciative mother
- Idolizes older sister, Honey Bea, who can do no wrong in his eyes
- Supported Rowan's love of archaeology, is deeply disturbed by her willingness to throw her career away for pseudoscience. Knows that academic reputations are fragile and irreparable.
- Has no real relationship with Randy, who was a preschooler when J.A. went to college. J.A. sees him at holidays and family functions and sends him well-curated, expensive birthday and Christmas gifts.
- Father was a nonentity, J.A. became family's de facto male role model.

Bea R
right-aligned image
Bea R
Name: Beatrice "Honey Bea Hopebeam" Rabinowitz (née Smith) (answers to Bea, Bea R, BR, or Honey Bea)
Place in the family: Eldest daughter of Bernice

High concept: Neo-hippie burnout gold-digger
Trouble: Can't settle on anything
Aspect 1: While she thinks of herself as an independent thinker, she has been a participant in all the major fad cultures sine the mid-1970s. By the late 1980s, she was indicted for possession of narcotics and did 6 years in federal prison.I've lived the times and done the time
Aspect 2: Meaning, first off, she's getting on in years. But she really does believe where there's a will there's a way. She is vivacious, and also prone to innane platitudes.You're as young as you feel!
Aspect 3: In youth, she was the favorite sister, held up as a role model. After her youthful indiscretions, this esteem remains in place for some siblings (James) while is an issue of lasting resentment for others (Arabella and Randy)Fallen angel of the family

Skills
Great (+4) - Provoke
Good (+3) - Deceive, Of an arts & crafts / handmade products type. I don't see her as an engineer or mechanically-inclined person, though she's probably better at that stuff than many would expect; the commune requires manual labor!Crafts
Fair (+2) - Burglary, Empathy, Contacts
Average (+1) - Think yoga, etc. She is very spry and healthy for a person her age.Athletics, Notice, Stealth, Will

Stunt 1: Yes, Ma'am - Can use Provoke instead of physique, as long as there is someone else nearby who could plausibly accomplish the physical task
Stunt 2: Flavored as "the various crystals and teas and other dumb crap that Bea has stashed all over"Placebo effect - I can use my Crafts skill to create an advantage that may be invoked on either Will or Empathy rolls
Stunt 3: Lies upon lies - +2 to create a deceive advantage against someone who has believed one of my lies ("during this session")

Career and hobbies: There is not an herbal remedy or essential oil that is too obscure or over-hyped for her. She has worked at a number of jobs in retail and faddish service, but has not assembled anything resembling a career. She has usually tied herself to a man (three husbands, and two other fiancees, including her current betrothed, Jamison Weatherbee) who have amply provided for her needs and desires.
Immediate family: Thrice-divorced and currently-engaged, but childless.

Possible issues: Honey Bea was I figure this puts her birth year around 1965, putting her in her early 50s as of game-time. I'd prefer her a little older than this, turning 15 or 16 by the mid-70s, making a birth year between 1960-62 and a current age in the 58-62 range.Bernice's first child, which means she was precociously coming of age in the heady time of disco. She rebelled early, hitting the club and exploring the more and less licit pleasures of the era. By the time disco was dead, Bea was still just a very young 19. She had fled from her family, and met the demons of addiction. She couldn't return to the bosom of her family. She met and married a series of refugees from the 60s, joined a commune, and look her hippie name. Her second husband has involved in some light narcotic smuggling. She left him by the late 1980s and returned to her family in tears. But addiction still held sway, as did federal drug laws. That left the family as prime targets to feed her habit. More than one member of the family (rightly) believed that she stole from them, and they felt vindicated when she was arrested and sent to prison for possession and trafficking of narcotics.

Beatrice had mellowed by the time of her release. She soon thereafter found her third husband, who was quite well-off, having founded a "Night-soil.com: it's the Pets.com of composting and organic matter!"first-wave tech boom website. She took up a number of social and environmental causes. She is an avid cryptozooligist, she claims to adhere to Wicca, and she has been an ambassador for a number of crackpot remedies, treatments and "systems" over the years. She is both passionate and credulous. She is frankly just a few Facebook clicks away from taking up Flat-Eartherism. She argues passionately and earnestly with her family members regularly, accusing them of such sins as "neoliberalism", "medical orthodoxy", "corporate fascism", and "ecological holocaust". They generally don't trust her with money, expensive possessions, or basic factual knowledge.

She is a somewhat dim, burned-out new-age pain in the ass.

The inheritance: If anyone were to ask her directly, she would list 10 different causes she'd donate to if she got her inheritance. In honesty, the inheritance would allow BR a modicum of independence that she has never really had. She's not convinced that a fourth marriage to Jamison is wise, but without any skills or savings to rely on, she feels that she needs to hitch herself to a wealthy partner. Her life would take perhaps its most radical change yet - self-reliance - if she could just get her hands on that money.

Randy
right-aligned image
Name: Randall “Randy” Smith
Age: 46
Place in the family: Youngest child of Bernice

High concept: Over-committed, over-educated contractor
Trouble: By the book? What book?
Aspect 1: I know everyone is good, deep down.
Aspect 2: When confronted with a problem that he can't solve immediately - no matter how big or small - Randy believes that he can find the answer in a bookI'll find the answer! Just ... give me a minute ...
Aspect 3: Randy has finally realized that he has wronged many people - most by accident - over his life and he is bearing the burden of guilt over these past wrongsGuilty Conscious (or Guild Over Past Wrongs?)

Skillset
Great (+4) Crafts
Good (+3) Lore, think more along the lines of MacGuyver than actual moneyResources
Fair (+2) Investigate, Physique, Provoke
Average (+1) Athletics, Notice, Empathy, Will
Stunts
 

 


Career and hobbies: Randy is an Architect by schooling. He has managed to hold steady employment, but has bounced around employers frequently. He is currently in his most unstable position yet: a contractor. While he makes decent money, he also works a lot. He used to be a pretty good athlete until a back injury derailed a promising hockey career. He maintained some level of fitness until his wife left with the kids. Now he spends his free time reading – mostly self-help books.
Immediate family: Amelia “Mia” (wife; separated), George (son, 6; separated), Lucia (daughter, 5; separated)

Possible issues: Randy was an “oops” baby and often felt left out because he was so much younger than the rest of the household. Randy grew up watching his older siblings go about life in their own unique ways. There was always strife in the family. Some of it was good, old-fashioned family troubles. Some of it was more. All of it Randy wanted to fix. He saw it as a way that he could participate with the adults. He stuck his nose in everyone’s business - All. The. Time. - trying to sort out how to make issues better. In the end all he accomplished was ruining most of his relationships in the family. For better or worse, Randy has only recently started to realize how bad things are, so he has always attended family events and converse with the others like nothing is wrong.

Randy’s other relationships suffered for all the same reasons. He had a few girlfriends through his 20s but nothing ever serious – not that he wasn’t interested in more with one of them. Then in his 30s he only had one relationship that lasted for just over a year. Finally, with his 40th birthday rushing up on him, he met Amelia. She was only three years younger than him and wanted a family. In a very short span, they were married, their son was born, and then their daughter was born. For the most part they got along well, although as the years passed Randy began to wonder if Mia had just settled on him because time was running out for her to have a family. Three months ago that fear was confirmed (at least in his mind) when Mia asked for a trial separation. Randy moved out. Then, a month later, Mia asked him to stop coming around at all. Around the same time, Randy’s position at work was eliminated but, thankfully, the company hired him back as a contractor.

Randy has been reading every “self-help” book he can find. This is a problem that he can fix! Miraculously, the books have begun to work. Randy has managed to take a hard look in the mirror and he has begun to understand that he is a problem. The only issue? He doesn’t know how to fix himself. The news from his mother had been devastating, but her final wish had come as a silver lining. This is his chance to figure out how to fix himself before he tries to fix the relationships he cares the most about: his wife and kids.

Inheritance: The inheritance is an intriguing proposition and, if nothing else had been wrong in his life, would have brought him home. However, it is unequivocally a secondary goal. If Randy can figure out how to fix himself, he may be able to win back his family, advance at work, and be just fine without any inheritance at all. Of course, a small fortune is never anything to scoff at either.

Name Tom Rhodes.

Place in family Bernice's son-in-law, married to her middle child, Arabella

High concept Respected, retired former police chief.
As a police detective he solved many major cases most thought were not solvable. In addition he was instrumental in the fall of the Carrelli crime family. Tom's proudest moment was trolling the notorious serial killer, Greg Laski, into self incrimination. The video tape of that interrogation is often used as a textbook example of the way to break a perp.
As the police chief, he was always the champion against budget cuts. Tom always hated the politics of the job, and used his leaving speech to deliver a well aimed the reason you suck breaking speech to the mayor at the time. Tom received a standing ovation from his fellow officers.

Trouble Not slow at telling people when he thinks they're wrong. Also has little respect for those who don't work for a living. This stems from coming from a cop family where a strong work ethic was instilled into him, and his own experiences as a cop. He's heard every sob story and very few of them were genuine. Arabella gets it. She was working as a secretary rather than living off her family money when they met.
Tom made a good career for himself, and he feels if you work hard, you can too.

Age Early 60s

Career and hobbies Tom was a highly respected police officer. When he was a detective, he closed several major cases. However he was a victim of his own success and kept getting promoted. Eventually he got promoted to police chief, a position he hated as it took him away from crime solving. Tom was always professional and served the community well, until his retirement.
Hobby wise he likes watching the old 1950s sitcoms. The Phil Silvers show is a particular favourite. The one time he was completely speechless was when he got to meet Dick Van Dyke as part of his job. He also likes to dance, and enjoys cooking.

Immediate Family His marriage to Arabella is a happy one despite the age difference. Two sons, Andrew who works as an ADA, and Jack who works for the coastguard.

Issues Although the age gap has never bothered either Tom or Arabella, other family members did have a problem with Tom being about 10 years older. Even tried to prevent the union. Tom never entirely forgave her father trying to bribe him to leave her.
His penchant for brutal honesty has not exactly endeared him to other family members either.
Whilst staying with the Smiths his grandfather's pocket watch went missing. Whilst of little monetary value, it was of great sentimental value. He would love to find it so he can pass it on to his eldest too, as his father did. He was unable to focus on searching for it at the time, as he was recalled to deal with a major case.

The inheritance Tom doesn't give a crap about it. He would much rather Bernice gave it all to charity.

Aspect Brutal honesty is the best policy.

Aspect 2 Master detective and knows how to push a perp's buttons

Aspect 3 Integrity is important to me, mine and other people's.

Skillset
Great (+4) Investigate.
Good (+3) Empathy, Notice
Fair (+2) Law lore, Shoot, Will.
Average (+1) Athletics, Contacts, Gourmet, Resources.

Stunts
Attention to Detail. Tom can use Investigate instead of Empathy to defend against Deceive attempts. What others discover through gut reactions and intuition, Tom learns through careful observation of microexpressions.
Living Lie Detector. (Requires Attention to Detail) As an experienced police officer, Tom is very hard to fool. He gets a +2 on his investigate defend against Deceive attempts.
Pusher of Buttons. As an experienced interrogator, Tom can use Empathy in place of Provoke to overcome.
Master manipulator (Requires Pusher of Buttons) Tom gets a +2 on his Empathy overcome.

Simply transplanting this from the add thread for now. I'll edit in stuff about her relationship with her dad and mum (I don't foresee her being a big influence on the narrative, but I can still make her an NPC) later on.

Rowan
right-aligned image


Name: Rowan Smith
Place in the family: Age - 33Granddaughter

High concept: An explorer driven to discover the mysteries of lost civilizations considered to be mythical
Trouble: Very dedicated to her work up to the point of absentmindedness, women often accuse her they can't compete with her mistress - archaeology
Aspect 1: Very open-minded and willing to give different perspectives the benefit of the doubt. Not to be confused with a pushover.

Career and hobbies: Ro's an archaeologist. What time she doesn't spend on digs or on research, is allotted equally among writing for archaeological media, restoring the house she recently acquired and, whenever she can swing it, her VtM gaming sessions with her close circle of friends.
Immediate family: Single, constantly searching for Miss Right

Possible issues: Ro's one step away from being disowned by her stuck up, snobby, entitled family. She's gay, but that's not the reason. Her parents would have been perfectly content to marry her off to some high-society professional lesbian (a corporate lawyer or something) and write themselves off as progressive gay parents while their daughter lived the life of a socialite. But unfortunately for them, their unruly daughter didn't go for that type of woman and had no interest of being arm candy to some hyped up courtroom warrior in a power suit (regardless of how hot they may look in said suits).

And to top it off Ro went and graduated archaeology. Something utterly useless in her parent's eyes. Fortunately for Rowan when she started publishing content and gained some success and recognition in her field of study her parents shifted gears and used the eccentric academic to excuse their daughter's behavior.

The final nail in their coffin of patience, however, was driven in when Ro started taking interest in fringe theories and lines of study and research like Atlantis, Lemuria, the Hollow earth theory, and all those crazy hypotheses about lost advanced prehistoric civilizations. So her parents issued an ultimatum. Either drop those lunacies and go back to her mainstream studies, or marry a woman they've selected for her to help repair the damage she'd inflicted on the family image with her crazy ideas.

Nana Berny, or Birdy as Ro is used to call her ever since she was little and was unable to pronounce her grandmother's name correctly, Could change with appealing player applications is the only relative Rowan has a good relationship with. (Maybe an in-law or two, depending on the characters.) Birdy was always supportive of Rowan's decision to go into the archaeological field and even when she went after her more out there ideas. Nana, like Ro's parents, also tried to set her up on a number of occasions with "promising young ladies" as Birdy liked to call them. But her taste in women was way better and closer to Rowan's, than any of the professional lesbians her parents try to marry her off to.

The Inheritance: Ultimately Rowan doesn't care much for the inheritance. She is more concerned with the prospect of losing her beloved grandmother, than gaining loads of cash. She's told Birdy on more than one occasion that if money could buy her compliance, she would have been already married off to some filthy rich corporate lawyer lady. However, out of love for her Nana, Ro will try to respect her last wishes and reconcile with her parents, but not at the expense of bending to their will. Internally Rowan is willing to admit that her parents are acting out of some form of love. But the way they go about showing it is so bent by the prism of their own worldview that Ro just doesn't know how to find a way to show them queue sad violins playing she's different and it's okay to love her just the way she is.

I'm going to stat Jamison a bit here. My understanding is that NPCs often just have one or two aspects (and generally no stunts and only the skills that are necessary for expected roles). So, I'm going to lay out my suggestions and girlplay can modify as desired.

Jamison Weatherbee (NPC)
right-aligned image
Jamison probably doing super good at cool investing
Name: Jamison Weatherbee
Place in the family: (current) fiancé of Beatrice

Aspect 1: Thinks he's a business genius. Most people accurately percieve that he's not. The "sixth sense" attitude has left him open to some of Bea's manipulations and machinations and fads, which he has thrown money atPeople don't see my sixth sense for business
Aspect 2: A relationship aspect that might hint at the family's attitude towards him - skeptical that he'll stick around, but mostly tolerant to his place, such as it isMost recent in the long line of Beatrice's affianced

Skills
Good (+3) - Resources
Fair (+2): Empathy, Drive
Average (+1): Contacts, Physique, Rapport

Character sketch: A late-middle-age business man. He is the Executive Vice President of the accounting division of a regional packaging-technology firm. He is convinced that he is a "hip businessman" and a canny venture capitalist. The ventures he patronizes lean very heavily on his perception of "hip-ness", and as a result are often pretty terrible ideas. He has funded clothing lines for obscure Eastern European fashion lines that no one cares about. He has funded "the newest best flashlight that no one knows everyone needs yet". And he has funded a number of new age products, of the kind that Bea is very much involved in.

They met through an "investor angel" conference for "biomass-derived essential oils and geospatial energies products". They hit it off, dated, went together on trips to Thailand and the Caribbean, and now are affianced and living together.
