Application: Kassidy Griffith

right-aligned image


Name: Kassidy Griffith: aka Apparition, The Collector or Voodoo Witch

Age: 30

Concept: A ghostly bounty hunter/computer hacker that catches her bounty through Possession, Mind Control, Bio Overdrive, and various other means.

Personality: Kassidy is an intelligent, calm and a very self-confident person who possesses a consuming curiosity about the world around her. Easily bored and distracted she is constantly looking for things that will provide both mental and physical stimulation for her. She’s either trying to hack a computer system or she’s out on the streets looking for her next bounty catch. She thoroughly enjoys what she does and eagerly approaches each job as if it’s going to be her last.

Kassidy is also social, and friendly, enjoying the company of others and delights in gaining any knowledge about things she doesn’t know about from the people around her. However, her curiosity tends to get her into trouble. If there is a computer system that has information that she wants to know about, she will take up the challenge and attempt to gain access to that information. And if there is a bounty that everyone is afraid to go after, she’ll take up that challenge too. Kassidy just can't resist such targets.

Kassidy is also caffeine and energy drink addict. Her normal friendly and calm self tends to go out the window if she doesn’t have her daily dose(s) of caffeine or energy stuff…..

Background:
 



Physical Description:

Standing at 5' 8" and weighing about 150lb Kassidy is in excellent shape, physical shape. She keeps her hair short and is almost always wearing sunglasses of various designs. Her clothing is simple yet practical, usually consisting of running shoes and loose-fitting tops and pants. She has few piercings, and her hair style usually has some kind of design shaved in it.

She is always carrying her two favorite weapons of choice, stun gun pistols, one strapped to each of her legs and a couple of knives hidden somewhere on her person.

Kassidy's eyes are intense and bright hazel color, giving one the feeling that she is looking right through them, seeing their true self, as she speaks to them when they aren't hidden behind sunshades.

Complications: Give me at least three complications. Ideally, these should be unique, but this is not a requirement.

1: Look at that! I must get it! Kassidy can resist targets, both real and cyberspace related. The challenge of catching someone on governments most wanted list or hacking a big company’s computer system is something she craves. The mental and physical stimulation this provides helps to ward off the boredom she easily gets. Plus she just noisy and wants to know a company’s secrets and the money from a most wanted is a bonus for her any day.

2: I hate everyone today! Kassidy is a caffeine and energy drink junkie. Without her daily dose of said drinks, she becomes irritable, with a massive headache that leads to her becoming cranky, mean and belligerent towards everyone. Once she becomes caffeinated, she fine and back to normal.

3: Friends and family, who needs them. For almost every bounty Kassidy catches, there is usually some friend or family member who either threatens her, tries to help the bounty to escape or attempts to bribe her to look the other way. What a nuisance! Why can’t they just let her do her job in peace?

4: The Branson Clan. A clan of survivalist and doom day preppers. Linda Sue’s bounty was small, but her family is large. After Linda Sue’s capture clan members were constantly harassing Kassidy. Unfortunately, Linda Sue died in prison during the Orange Sky Event along with all the other prisoners. After the Event, Kassidy hasn’t heard a thing from the Branson Clan. She’s sure they all survived. However, the big question is: Were any of Clan members exposed to the orange haze and then mutated like she did?

RP Sample (Optional):

Extra Credit:

What would you like to get out of this game?

I would like to actually play the game and learn the mechanics of M&M Three times I applied to a game and twice the GM disappeared before the selection process and a third time the game ended while the characters were still in introduction part of the game. I also like the fact that new players are welcome and that the GM is willing to work with players if they need help. I'm looking to expand my gaming experience beyond D&D and enjoying the learning process along the way.

What would you like to see?

I made my character that’s has powers, non-powered and socially active. A nice blend of action and roleplay would be great. With a bounty hunter, anything goes!

What do you want your character to accomplish?

Right now, Kassidy hopes to learn how to use her powers so that she can expand her range of bounties to include the new type of criminal, the new super humans. As for her future goals, who knows? She'll just have to wait and see when she gains more experiences with dealing with the new breed of criminals.

What would you like to work toward?

Not sure, except for character development and see how she changes and evolves with both the story and the group she’s with.

Give me an idea of the experience you want to have! Feel free to address any concerns and mention any specific themes you definitely want to avoid.

Experience wise, learning the game system and having fun interacting with the other players.
Theme wise, I’m open anything as long as it doesn’t violate this sites policies about what’s not acceptable.

Have I missed anyone on the list of applications so far? I've seen a lot of names show up repeatedly that I don't have names for, but I can't find any application at a glance

Wow, lots of new apps. I should have mine done tomorrow. I was in charge of a retirement party this past weekend and didn't know which way was up for a while.

Created an image for FoggyKnight's character. Thanks to whoever found that one bearman picture, I used it for this.

The only thing I'd really like to see at a glance is more about her background and personality from BEFORE the Orange Sky Event, and how her life has changed since. A few name drops for NPCS would be nice too, since I can use those to flesh out said NPCs going forward.

Oh nice! That'll do! Is there some BB-fu that allows for resizing an image, or do I need to edit and re-upload?

As far as I know, RPGX doesnít have that specific code in place. It canít be done in theory but this site canít.

More is always better. More details. More NPCs. More plot hooks.

Especially NPCs. I'd love some characters with some sort of link to Gremlin, whether they be friends, acquaintances or enemies. I'd like to know more about exactly where he calls 'Home' even if he doesn't actually have an address. These are all, of course, things I can make up for myself if I need to -- but I really like it when players take an active role in developing the world around their characters. It keeps things fresh and takes a little of the weight off my back as far as creating a narrative.

That said, it's otherwise a solid app.

The app seems pretty solid on its face. Like most apps, I would like to see some social links in there somewhere. People I can use to bring characters together would be amazingly helpful and it's useful to see how you think others would feel about your characters.

Admittedly there are two concerns here. Batman characters are great, but this is a story about the relatively newly empowered coming to terms with a changing world. Even if it's something small, I'd like to see some kind of special ability beyond just being super well trained. It doesn't have to be big, it could even just be his super intelligence is a result of mild exposure to the Orange Sky Event rather than something he's always had.

The other thing is the mention of being a horror villain, as this is really more of a hero game -- or at least an anti-hero game at worst. I don't think most of the other players have created anything that could be considered really villainous from the onset, so I'm a little concerned about group dynamics and cohesion.
