Avner- With your permission, can my "fae" be independent of, but work along side the Courts? What I mean is that she doesn't belong to any single court per se. However, there is an agreement of respect?

Edit: Do we need to include Abilities and Powers in our apps? Or can those be left out?

Name or Alias: Sibyl; The Blackmoore (Banshee)Bean-sidhe.
Character Concept: Sibyl is a skilled hunter who focused her training on using ranged weaponry. She was born with a touch of a sixth sense and under the special tutelage of an independent “faerie” sibyl has been able to hone her psychic talents. Expanding them beyond what they may have become under her parents’ care she has learned to use them to give her the advantage on hunts.

Power Level: PL 8

Quote/Comic Byline: "Not yet..."

Complications:
Responsibilities: The duty of a hunter is to maintain order. To hunt and bring down the rogue or careless Others that try to tear down the carefully erected walls between the Supernatural and the Mortal world.Serve and Protect
Responsibilities: Stuck between two worlds, not really belonging to either, yet bound to both through duty and loyalties, Sibyl hopes to never have to choose between the two. So far, the two worlds share a common goal: To keep the Supernatural secret. Fae Ties vs Family Ties
Honor: A powerful, solitary Dis; the spirit/fae who saved her. Not much is known about the Dísir, and less about Meadhbh, aside from rumors. All that is known is that she belongs to none of the Courts, yet works in parallel with them. Meadhbh is the only "family" Sibyl had for the years she spent learning under the intense eye of the Dis. Now she's torn between her loyalty to the Fae who raised her and the family who she no longer recognizes.Meadhbh
Secret: It's no secret that she comes from a long line of dedicated Hunters. Very few, however, know exactly how far back her connection goes. She likes to keep it that way.Blackmoore
Acceptance: Even though it's been years since she was returned, Sibyl still feels out of place in a world where strangers call themselves her kin and its people belong to a different time.Belonging
Prejudice: She can never forget the Wolf that took everything from her. Her life, her family, her time. Even though she survived and it did not, she still carries the anger and fear inside of her. Sometimes, that fear can transfer over to those of his kind as distrust and anger. Especially the unaffiliated.Fear and Mistrust

Description/Character Portrait:
She prefers to wear dark clothing of a light material similar to that which she wore growing up, but will wear whatever attire a situation may call for - skirts, dresses or jeans - she’ll wear them all. She is proficient with any ranged projectile weapon on a job, but her preferred weapon is a compound bow and quiver. Not particularly tall, she is of medium build, and lithe movements. Red hair, braided away from an oval face, is kept pinned into a bun at the base of her skull. An obsidian shawl, a reminder of one worn by her mother, serves to conceal her weaponry and on occasion, her vibrant tresses. Her most striking features, however, are her eyes. A pure obsidian color highlighted by pinpricks of unearthly light. An eternal remnant from her time with Meadhbh.

Affiliation:
A Dis of unknown affiliation. The Dísir are creatures known for their rumored association with fate. A benevolent spirit who surreptitiously watched Sibyl’s family for centuries. In an exchange of kindness she took in a dying Amalie, saving her life. Over the course of time she took the opportunity to teach the girl. Sibyl views the dis as family now. Her loyalties are now torn between Meadhbh and her mortal kin.Meadhbh
Her family. Strangers to her now, she struggles to feel a connection to them. Time in the Fae has altered her and her relationship with her present family members. They see her as a living myth and view her with a mix of awe and uncertainty.The Blackmoores
Her family, the Blackmoores, have hunted under the direction of Magnus Veritas for generations. When she returned to the mortal world, and reconnected with the family, her ties to the organization were also re-established."Magnus Veritas''

 

 

BONUS
Character Connections:
Killian O’Doul- A curious Fae. Sibyl finds him cheerful & friendly. Yet, as with most fae, she is wary of him. A charming ‘man’, their paths crossed during her time in his world. On friendly terms with her teacher, Maeve, they met in passing often enough to become comfortable with each other. Enough to be friendly, if not exactly friends.
Eric Prince- A fellow hunter, they have crossed paths a time or two and have even partnered up a few times. Inevitably, they have developed a kind of professional friendship. Finding him to be a “kindred spirit” of sorts she has taken it upon herself to take him under her wing, even if he hasn’t realized it. She takes care to be available should he need her aid or assistance.
Herr Jerome- Sibyl has never had the pleasure, but she has heard of him. In studying the history of Shadowgate she has read a what is publically known about the former Custodian of Shadowgate. Other than that he is a mystery to her.

Hello all, I'm building a hunter with an unusual history. If anyone thinks that we might build a connection for the app, let me know. Feel free to DM me if you think that would be a better way to communicate. No rush.

Character Application
right-aligned image
Name or Alias: Shiver aka, Stephanie Alderman, "Steph"

Character Concept: Sort of a freelance Harbinger of Death. Instilled deep within the core of who she is from an early age is the drive to punish, banish, and destroy those here in this realm uninvited with intentions to do evil.

Abilities: She has a Sting of Death Blast attack, A Shroud of Death Concealment attack, A "Reach from the Grave" fear Affliction area attack, and a short range "Death's Door" Teleport ability that she can use to move others as well. She can also see using Darkvision and Infravision, as well as control the Environment down to extreme cold to which she is immune.

Quote or Comic Byline: "Is it cold in here, or is it just me? It's just me."

Complications: Disability - Blind, Motivation - Justice/Death's Revenge

Description/Character Portrait: Shiver is five foot, five inches tall, and weighs about a hundred and forty pounds with brown hair. She wears a mask when on the hunt, and sports twin machine pistols for her look - though she's never fired them anywhere but up in the air to clear the area of innocents a time or two. When not on the hunt, she wears solid dark lenses in her glasses.

Affiliation: Affiliated with a group of hunters (will sync background with others so allied if selected)

Backstory: Most tend to think that Death is something of a Simpleton in the great big scheme of things and does nothing but arrive to claim the souls of those departing this Mortal Coil. No greater misconception has there ever been, though Death would prefer to have their machinations be shrouded in the darkness they thrive in, and have others believe them to be a non-entity in all that is going on.
Steph is an orphan, blind from birth, and the "home" she was in at a young age was beyond sketchy. Sold to a "Death's Door" cult when she was a toddler to be sacrificed, "Death" took a serious interest in this cult that spouted off his name and used it for all manner of evil doings. In short, Death took umbrage and stepped in moments before Steph was to be sacrificed. Not so much caring about whether Steph lived or died at first, Death laid waste to every member of the cult, but not before noticing the defiance and attitude of the toddler even in what was to be the last moments of her life.
Instead of leaving the head shaved blind girl strapped to an altar to die, Death freed her and gave her the 'Spark of Death' to live alongside the 'Spark of Life' that dwells within her. Believing she'd succumb to human depravity, greed, and power with these newfound powers, Death expected to come as her reaper before she hit her teens.

That didn't happen.

Steph instead used these powers to help all those around her, almost totally unselfishly. The new 'Home' she was placed in thrived, as did all those who worked and lived in it. Any staff or workers who were there for the wrong reasons quickly quit or disappeared, never to be seen again.
Practically running the Orphanage, the small bit of power that came from it didn't go to her head. She let those there for the better good do their jobs and just went to her school for the blind and had a decent life until she was no longer a minor just over a year ago. Using the latest in technology for the visually challenged, she is something of a freelance cyber security specialist and that's how she's been paying her own way for the past year, and she needed it since she discovered what is really going on in the city. Since then, she's made it her near sole mission and job to track them all down and send them back to where they came with as much pain inflicted as she can bring to bear.

Or, that's what she's told others who seek her motivations up to this point. Truth be told, "Death" does sort of speak to her, though it's more of a feeling and comes over her as a literal chill up her spine. Or at least she thinks it is Death. Not of this dimension, Death is having a tougher than normal time of it with all that's going on and is making their first Foray into this dimension via his Harbinger, one "Shiver."
There's a very secretive order that is trying to not only fight the "evils that be" but trying to make sense of of all this Chaos and put it in its place. This, "Chaos order" uses Shiver as well to do their own deeds, which doesn't always include the monsters that come through the veil. Sometimes, it's a person, a business, or even a building that suddenly needs to be vacant, or a car stolen, or a piece of jewelry.
Why does she do their bidding, well, most of the time anyway? Because they get her and recognize her badassedness. They call it her "calling" or one of many other terms, but in short she gets respect. This is something she's never had really in her life, very little anyway. So with the Chaos Order loosely pulling her strings, and Death breathing down her neck (Is that where the chill comes from?), there's no telling what she'll do next. And that suits her just fine.

Writing Sample:
 


BONUS
Character Connections: Aaron Greyson, and Venus. Both mentioned in Writing sample.

The more fleshed out your character is the better, but we can always straighten out mechanics later. I do need to know what powers your character has and how you expect them to work. If you need help specing anything out myself or some of the more seasoned players can help, there is always someone who loves to dive in and build out creative power sets.

I'm okay with you taking creative liberty in that regard with the fae courts.

Oh! Okay. Then I'll start working on the character mechanics. Fair warning: I don't know all the insider tricks for min-maxing a character, so I'm sure that Angelika won't quite measure up. Maybe I can ask one of the experts to take a look and offer suggestions.

In my experience the best way to go about it is to have a crack at it and go from there. We can give you feedback and you may do some self discovery as well. I’ll try and find some templates for you if you need them.
