I feel obligated to put in an app for this since I'm from Philly, so expect something from me in the future.

Will post up a character for finished later today (all but starting XP)
Application
Name: James Henderson
Concept: Rundown Officer
Occupation: SVU Detective
Family: Eshimaki
Hunger: Punishment (Abusives)
Legend: Judgemental
Life: Loyal
Age: 35

3 Aspirations:
To not appear on IAB's radar this month(short term)
To catch the ******* who killed Sara(Short Term)
To use my job long enough to feed so that I can retire. (long term)

Description:
Most often seen wearing a dingy shirt that has not has an affair with an iron since he was a bright eyed detective, with a tie that's pattern went out of style some time around when he gave up on appearances. This overweight, haggard, man has the look of someone who as seen too much corruption, too much hate, too much filth.

Bio:
Born in Chicago, Illinois James was a true blue died in the wool American man with a heart of tarnished gold. Not the best man, not a great man, but never the bad man. He picked fights in school, but mostly with bullies who picked on the weakest kids in class. He always stood up when he was knocked down, and his school history tough public schooling proved one thing that he was resilient.

When he graduated he knew one thing, he wanted to be a police officer and with that in mind he went to the University of Northern Illinois and earned a degree in Criminal Justice. After spending many years as a Homicide Detective he married to Jane Witfield, and for the first year the marriage was a happy one. Some time later though Jane decided that just one man wouldn't do for her especially one as plain as a mere human, she ended up sleeping with quite a few other men while James had remained faithful to her.

About that time he was transferred from Homicide to SVU in Chicago, it was then the nightmares became too much for him, faced with all that horror day in and day out the wickedness of humanity in his heart he screamed out for someone to step in and do something, to save these people to stand up for them. He started not being able to stand up again, and he had so much trouble keeping his footing on his sanity. Homicide was easy, the victim was dead already, he didn't need to face them other than on a slab and promise their ghost a measure of justice. SVU was so much harder because often times his victim was alive, crying, and terrified.

Finally one night he broke he couldn't take it any more, and that's when he realized, when he learned, he was the monster...still haunted by the specter of his divorce, which finalized only months ago he transferred to Philadelphia where this lurking terror hunts for the scum and bottom feeders that both sides of him enjoy taking down. He knows what he is. He's the moral at the end of the story, the wolf that eats the liar. He is the fear of being caught and he enjoys that knowledge. No matter who black, how crap stained things are, and how bad the things that go bump in the night are there are things like him prowling.

Now a member of Philadelphia SVU this haggard detective is ready to feed on the cities human debris. While working his latest case, he ran into a girl named Sara a 12 year old put out on the streets by a dead beat father who drank up his paychecks. When her father realized she had been talking to the detective and that something was after him, he must have killed the girl because she showed up in the morgue soon after. Though her father is currently in solitary, having to take his meals though a straw. Sadly it wasn't until later that Henderson realized one thing, it wasn't the father who killed the girl, and this wasn't that sicko's first kill.


I tried to give a few plot hooks to use.

Great stuff, Lonely! I absolutely loved the HBO series back in the 90s. And the Noir feel of the character is pretty awesome. Definitely up my alley. Thanks for the app

Since I think everyone will be a newbie to Beast, this might not be a bad game to get started on. I know I plan on fumbling and falling, so I will certainly forgive you for any mistakes you might make. If I can help at all, let me know

Danny North
aka Voices aka Jesus Christ aka The Needle God aka The Badlands Messiah

• Character Concept-Criminal Cult Leader
• 3 Aspirations (2 short term, 1 long term)
(Short term)-Make a local biker gang into allies
(Short term)-Get more people hooked on his drug, GORE
(Long term)- Organize a mass ritual slaughter
• Family- Namtaru
• Hunger- Hunger for Power
Legend- Seductive
Life- Cautious

• A brief biography of your character-
Danny is a dangerously insane cult leader with an overwhelming obsession for violent death. He spent the majority of his life in insane asylums and correctional facilities. During a recent stint Danny was turned on to a new drug, GORE, an hallucinogenic amphetamine. Since his release from jail Danny has been using GORE to form a cult. A former serial killer, he now gets his thrills convincing his followers to cause pain and death on his behalf.

The Cult of The Needle God is a growing flock of criminal, loss souls, drug addicts, runaways, the mentally ill, and the dregs of society living the alleyways of Philadelphia's worst neighborhoods. On Danny's orders, members of his cult have performed robberies, assaults, sold and bought drugs and weapons, and even committed murder. The Cult of The Needle God uses a pile of dirty syringes as alters; their symbol is a scorpion's tail.

• A brief description of your character- Danny is a manipulator first and foremost. Every aspect of his appearance and personality are calculated to produce a desired affect. Currently Danny is homeless, although whether is projecting the personality of deranged hobo or hipster street kid depends on the situation.

Thank you. I hope to get in, I also hope that the dead child (Sara) is something that you can use in any form of plot. After all a lot of things can and will kill children in the World of Darkness though sometimes it's best not to under estimate humanity. Honestly sometimes the monsters seem gentle in comparison to humanity.

Well a good place to start is what is the man like? Then build on the nature of the monster.

My progress with the book has been halted for the moment due to some business and partying over the last week and the start of a new college semester at my school, however I do have some more questions. Firstly, is it possible for a Beast to have profession that could add to their Nightmare but not feed their Hunger? And Secondly, I know it might be mentioned in later chapters, but is the PC Beast meant to be a completely original Beast or are they allowed to be Beasts with an established mythology (i.e. Chimera)?

Yes of course. If you wanted to run a Greek Resturant and have it have nothing to do with your hunger or nightmare sure. Nothing stopping you, but having a job that helps you hunt...It's like getting payed to be on lunch break.

Nothing stopping you from it. Though you might have to ask is your horror the Original Chimera? A new one? The son of Chimera? Didn't some greek jerk hero define it's Anathema to be Paradox and then use one to kill it? Your character will probably if they do care about that sort of thing have to figure that out.

Well, if it's Huge monster than it probably Giant class type Beast.

Hi, XQbitor.
Nice to see you again.
