[DP: Black Watchmen] Sana

17 September, 2008

(Concept: Ghost)
Sana was formerly Sarah Napier, a medical student and feminist activist from Ground Zero. While she was working as a volunteer at an abortion clinic in the Vaults, a group of thugs high on mescal and gint (think Gin & Tonic on acid) attempted to gang rape her. She killed every single one of them in a prolonged struggle lasting several hours, but was declared dead when a private security firm finally found her. While lying on a slab at a morgue, she rose from the dead and named herself Sana, intent on cleaning the world of sexual criminals. And of the fathers that brought them up.

Stupido (Born Stuart Peters)
Concept: Freak
Stuart Peters was wounded several times during the war of independence, but never saw real action. Once he was the sole surviver of a nerve toxin attack on his army barracks. According to the now classified reports from the different rescue companies, he was suffering severe trauma and multiple personalities disorder. Another time, when he was in psychiatric treatment, he was hit by the after effects of a nano-nuclear strike. He is now a well known figure in the Vaults, where he sleeps in rubbish containers and seems to be able to digest anything. Stupido can receive people’s thoughts, but only send raw emotions back telepatically.

[Darkpages: Black Watchmen] Burkan Hare

16 September, 2008

This is the first post with characters for my Black Watchmen imprint. To give you an idea of what it all means, DP characters have four Motifs based on their Concept. Burkan below is a “Vampire” concept, meaning his Motifs are Domination, Hunger, Preternatural, and Transformation. The same for all other Vampire concept characters. Under each Motif a number of Powers are added, and these Powers are completely created by the players. So, no Powers list in the book or in an imprint. The numbers are the number of dice you roll in a challenge for the right to narrate new panels. There’s more, but that’s the very basics.

Burkan Hare
Concept: The Vampire
Burkan is second generation of Hungarian immigrants. He now runs a reasonably successful plastic surgery business in up-town Edinburgh. At night he haunts the Vaults for victims, who he cuts into surreal sculptures of meat and bone. Burkan lives on his victims darkest secrets, which they reveal to him during his devastating crimes. His victims’ pain and suffering combined with their unveiled secrets have gradually transformed Burkan’s night persona to a hunchbagged cripple, mentally and physically. The deformations have begun to transform into his daily life, as they seem to be keeping him alive as well. According to his birth certificate, Burkan is 140 years old.
