Name: Conal Lachlan O’Daly
Apparent Age: 39
Concept: PTSD war-ravaged veteran who switched from battlefront medic to the battlefront medicine in a Chicago Ambulance.
Clan: Toreador
Sire: Cleo

Ambition: To found a Haven strong enough and respected enough to hold a 24/7 sanctuary status for Anyone in the know, kindred, changeling, mortal, mage or other.

Convictions: The warrior code, Self-reliance and overcoming obstacles, never stop learning.
Touchstones: Warrior code:Roberta Lee Katte, one of the first females serving in a front line combat unit in the middle east. Weapons specialist and liaison with other cultures, especially women. Bobbie Lee now does odd civilian jobs, sometimes with “spook” or criminal types. Never quit, Never surrender!:Nev Ange Wooly, ex-military, also a veteran but not frontline, Power grid specialist and engineer until she lost her leg to an IED. Nev Ange, or Knave/Angel, went through her own PTSD demons as well as being wheelchair bound 90% of the time. She has furthered her education and now holds degrees in computer science as well as engineering and electrical engineering. Ange is a genius, but also paranoid, conspiracy theorist, Hacker and internet junkie supreme. Never stop being a student: Professor Eachan Currie, wandering lecturer and sometimes educator in fields of Germanic history, Norse History, Linguistics, as well as Myths and Folklore/ (occult studiesin norse heathenry)

Appearance: Conn was once a lean, mean warrior. That time has passed, self destructive tendencies have led to alcohol abuse, physical deterioration, and weakening mental state that reflected with a poor complexion, obvious weight gain that half-hearted attempts at the gym do nothing for, red-eyes, slumped and defeated posture and a general “aura” that comes from a scotch bottle instead of cologne.

@ogamodyna

I'm digging your concept, but it doesn't quite gel with our timeline. Would you mind being a veteran of a more recent war? Either that or your character would need to be much older. All of the player character have only been embraced within the last 3 years.

I can make any changes you want. At 35 he is capable of having served seventeen years ago until the present. Anywhere in the middle east, Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq or Iran would all work for front lines. Unless the game timeline is in the future by more than a couple of years. I would have to do the math then.

I'll leave it up to you. Any of those are fine. I should mention that the conflict in the Middle East is very relevant to the current Masquerade meta.

I will be extending the deadline a bit as a few people have shown further interest. Let me know if there are any questions.

Hi, I am not sure if this concept fits in with what you have in mind, but I've been thinking about this character for quite a while. So, I'm going to give it a try.


Carter
right-aligned image

Name: Henry Franklin Carter
Apparent Age: 30
Concept: U.S. Army soldier who recently returned from Afghanistan, declared KIA by the military
Clan: Gangrel
Sire: Anousheh

Ambition: Accumulate enough Power, Influence, and Wealth to continue supporting his family and keeping them safe.

Convictions:
  1. Psalm 127:3 "Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward."

    Children are the most precious thing in the world. Never feed of them, never harm them, never put them in any danger. Protect them at all costs if you can.

  2. Luke 6:36 ''Be merciful, just as your father is merciful.''

    Mercy is not a weakness, it is a virtue. One that needs to be uphold even if you become a monster that hunts in the darkness.

Touchstones:
  1. Mary Rebecca Carter

    His daughter who was born shortly after Carter was send to Afghanistan. He never saw her in person while he was still human, only a few video and voice chats, but she is still the most important thing to him and he'll move heaven and hell if anything even remotely comes close to threaten her. Carter secretly stalks his wife and daughter, watching them in front of the TV or at night while they're sleeping.

  2. Father Patrick Ward

    The Irish priest who married Carter and his wife Anne. He also baptised Mary. Father Ward is the only person who knows that Carter is not dead, although he doesn't know what exactly happened, but he can't tell anybody due to the seal of confession. Carter talks to Father Ward on a semi regular basis, whenever he is in need of guidance or if he has something that he needs to get off his mind.

Appearance: Carter is thin, almost anorexic in his appearance. He tries to hide this fact by wearing his army provided camouflaged pants paired with lumberjack flannel shirts. Clothes that are wide and don't allow to see what's beneath them. Of course, he can't hide his face all the time and thus he gets the occasional 'look' when walking down the street.

He always tries to be aware of his surrounding and even in the most profane conversations he keeps looking around to see if anyone is following him. Carter isn't paranoid though, he just feels that 'better safe than sorry' is a good way to make sure you keep on living. One might consider him a nice guy, although he swears a lot [if swearing extensively is a problem, I don't mind tuning that down.] He still tries to come to grips with what has happened to him and what was taken from him at the same time. Swearing has become his way of coping although his mom would certainly wash his mouth with soap for hours if she'd ever hear the language he's using.

Random Ventrue (as they lounge in a large, expensive chair): *sigh* Why are we always waiting on lesser kindred... Don't they know we have important business to be conducting?



(tis a joke)

Good news everyone: the game folder has been created here. At the moment we have four complete applications for Maris, ogamodyna, Saratek, and Phettberg. Please go to the game and post your characters in the coterie thread.

I'll be leaving the door open for one more application as I saw there was a bit more interest than I anticipated. This ad will remain open until I make the opening post for the game which should be within the next few days as I get to know our accepted players/characters.

ApplicationsName: Saoirse (Ser-sha) Daaé
Apparent Age: 24
Concept: A beast on a mission
Clan:Lasombra
Sire: Erik (or if Ninja's fine with it, we could have the same sire)

Appearance: An irish goth princess, she tends to stand out in a crowd. Her hair is a scarlet waterfall down to the small of her back, her eyes are frozen emeralds. She wears purple lipstick, eye liner and eye shadow but no longer needs makeup to make her skin look more pale.

Ambition: Find her wife, Johanna

Convictions:

Kill only those deserving death:

None may control me:

Protect the innocent:

Touch Stones:

Kill only those deserving death: Sean Daaé, Saoirse's father, was a hitman for the Irish mob. However, he believed in honor and never killed anyone who didn't deserve it (in his opinion). He's in prison for life.

None may control me: Lisa Stevens, a martial arts and self defense instructor. After Saoirse was attacked it was Lisa's training that helped her feel in control of her own life once again. It was also Lisa's class where Saoirse met her wife.

Protect the innocent: Detective Arkady is the detective who worked her assault. Very grandfatherly and rugged, he seems to embody all the best things about the police.

Are you still accepting applications or are you all full up? I perfectly understand if I'm too late to this party.

If you are, here is mine:

Application - Erik Swann
right-aligned image

Name: Erik Swann
Apparent Age: 28
Concept: Owner of popular gay bar/nightclub who also runs a youth shelter for LGBTQ+ kids who have nowhere else to go.
Clan: Toreador
Sire: Frederick Krieger

Ambition: Destroy Frederick Krieger and his empire of drug dealers and pimps that prey on the vulnerable youth of the city.

Convictions:
1. "Stand up for the disenfranchised." As someone who personally saw the suffering of LGBTQ+ youth, Erik decided to always make sure they were as safe as he could make them.
2. "Always try to be nice, but never fail to be kind." Erik recognizes that sometimes being kind isn't the same thing as being nice. You have to do the right thing by someone even if it hurts them.
Touchstones:
1. Rafael Martinez. Rafael is Erik's "right hand" who maintains the shelter part of Erik's business during the daylight hours.
2. Susan Cooper Susan was Erik's father's personal assistant. He keeps a close eye on her as she runs what is left of the family business, making sure no one takes advantage of her or tries to hurt her in any way.

Appearance: Erik a slender but fit young man never without his characteristic "scruff" of a beard (which he keeps vainly trimmed to *just* the right length). Conventionally handsome but not arrogant about it.

Anticipating that I snoozed too long on this - darn work commitments!

Tagging for interest in case further recruiting is done.
