 Well, the Night caste could probably work as long as s/he focuses attention on the other houses.

I could see it working if we were all part of Tepet one way or another.  She'd want to elevate the weakest house in order to make it easiest to destroy them all.  When the time came, though, she'd try to stop everything in order to make things safe for the Solars.

I could easily see her being mistaken for a lost egg, especially if she had a Sidereal mentor cast Disguise of the New Face to conceal her anima.

 No better way to make the Blessed Isle safe for Solars than to be crowned the new Empress :P

Indeed ;). Solar crowned as new empress while having anima disguised and have heartstone which allows mimic elemental powers of DB caste which you choosed mimic works. I think it is 3 dot heartstone to mimic fire aspect anima effect (immunity to fire and do fire dmg in close radius). So would not be far fetch get heartstone for earth, wind, water or wood.

Anyways start working the char this weekend, last week was quite spiral ride school wise.

Been trying to work on this today but nothing seems to be meshing together for any decent character concepts.  Sorry.

I have pretty much all done but it's about to type it neatly my usual fashion what is the pain in the ass to do. I would sell myself a easy and neat online exalted charsheet which asks no money any kind to form account for or ask weird program downloads.

 No merits or flaws, I'm not even going to bother looking at them. As said in the OP, we'll be doing BP rather than XP, making taking flaws for anything except fluff unnecessary.

Here comes my char. Shadowfox got my background in PM so if your wondering his 'real' full name it is secret for now :P. Anyways I need suggestions for my manses. Considering Tepet legion members got killed and heartstones cracked when attunements were broken on purpose so anathema could not use them it left house Tepet lots of manses linger around. So they gave to Comet (kind of rising star in house) access to one their best manses (second only to ones which elders have) and access to one 3 dot manse and one 1 dot (or two 2 dot manses). So I am up on ears for any good heartstones which would benefit a DB general. I think his 4 dot heartstone is the seven leaping dragon (a kind of essence reinforced/magical dojo/castle which doubles as Comet's home/residence). So open ears for the rest heartstones.

Name(s): Tepet Comet (full real name; Sesus Comet of Arjuf of house Tepet)
Concept: A mysterious Lost Egg with unsurpassed pure bloodline adopted to house Tepet at age of 13 (after fall of legions) and top graduate from House of Bells, renown for being good MA duelist
Caste: Fire Aspect
Age: 18
Height: 5'8'ft
Weight: 180lb
Appearance
Anima
Languages: Riverspeak (native), High Realm, Low Realm, Old Realm

Motivation: To become great Dynast general who protects both Realm and neighboring nations from dangerous threats, seek to protect and not abuse.

Intimacies: Tepet Vaneran (deep respect), House Tepet (gratitude), Dragon-Blood Dynasts (cautious paranoia), Thousand Scales (respect), Sesus (wonder/longing), Mnemon (fearful respect), Immaculate Teachings (doubt)

Aya has lived upon the Blessed Isle for most of her life, struggling to survive, staying out of the way of the Dynasts and dealing with existence as best she could.  Occasionally, she'd end up getting "chosen" by people within the criminal underworld, getting paid just enough to perform certain tasks.  Often, it was simply to trail people, but sometimes she'd have to spill a drink, pick a pocket or little things.  She never even knew who was making her do these things, simply that if she wanted to make it through, she didn't have any choice.

Only one person ever really stood up for her.  Rising Petals, one of the Dynasts but much kinder, showed up on more than one occasion in order to help her out.  Friends weren't a luxury that she could afford, not when limited resources meant that everyone had to fight over food, but she wanted Rising Petals to be a friend.  Even when Rising Petals wanted something from Aya, it was never a trick, and Rising Petals  knew enough about the places in order to make the jobs easy.

Maybe that's why she lashed out.  She hadn't meant to do anything, but when she and Rising Petals were alone planning out how to stop some of the pirates who had come up on shore, one of the other Dynasts burst in.  He was drunk, he was upset with Rising Petals about something or other, and wasn't going to take no for an answer.

Aya was used to being used.  Had he grabbed her, she would have simply gone placid and waited for it to end.  Some of them were even kind.  Some showed her pleasure to mask the terror, but most didn't.  It was such a foolish action, trying to stand up for her only friend, but what else could she do?

She had a small boomerang, only really used to knock the apples off of trees during Wood Season.  It was crazy, but she hadn't really thought.  She just didn't want to live in a world where her one and only friend could be so easily taken from her.  Rising Petals only appeared once a month or so, but Aya found herself craving those times, waiting to be truly understood and accepted, instead of just used.

The boomerang took on a strange, golden glow as sheer power flowed through her, burying completely through the man's neck and nearly removing his head.  Her first thought was understanding what it was, trying to fight, to suppress the idea before she became Anathema, and she closed her eyes to strain herself to fight.  As the memories came back, though, the flood of surprise and amazement, she was able to suppress her power but couldn't help but revel as a newfound Solar.

Rising Petals' smile seemed to suggest that she knew all along.  Although she now knows that Rising Petals is no mere Dynast, she doesn't really know what and doesn't feel it right to ask.  She simply knows that everything is wrong, that the Immaculates developed their dogma in order to fully betray the Solars, and she has to find a way to fix everything.

Now, she hides as a Lost Egg.  Rising Petals has set her up with a few jade artifacts and a stone which makes Aya look stunningly beautiful, as well as a spell to help convince everyone that she was blessed by Mela.

Her trust has to be earned, and now she's even less likely to grant it, knowing that not only her life but her mission is at stake should she fail to keep her secret.  That was alright: she had memories of far worse times under incalculable odds, and would never let herself give up.  Becoming Empress herself didn't hold the allure that others felt because it presented too easy a target, but if she couldn't find another way to ensure the safety of the Solars, it was one possible option.

She was still afraid, but now at least her existence wasn't meaningless.

No problem with me but I had do some major edits once I realized I forgot purchase one important background for my concept; Destiny. So my char has been edited again and waits final approval (also changed him use superheavy plate once I realized it was 1pt difference between reinforced breastplate). However I now need ideas for 3th level heartstone and then one 2th level and one 1st level heartstone. Altough he can hold on two heartstone as he has spot in for direlance and one spot in his jade pendant.

Intimacies: House V'neef, House Tepet, Immaculate Faith, Sister (Medira), Hostel for Benevolent Life, Grotto of the Twisted Monkey, To Attain the Dog-faced Gremlin

Broad thin robes cover obvious shoulder coverings, an elegant silver and blue jade headband rests upon his brow while black and green jade bracers peek from beneath deep sleeves. Has the scent of wet moss and dirt about him.  (Even before he exalted.) 

History: 
   Raised worms and bugs in the garden before he exalted. Quiet child of the House, often said to be elemental in nature because of my interest and comfort with animals and insects. Never truly good with them, but always comfortable around them, he has been bit, gored, and kicked, but never angry at the animal for reacting as it would. Post exaltation gravitated to the martial arts where he  had a natural affinity. Graduated from the Cloister of Wisdom. Recently married into House Tepet.
