What is the worst thing your character has ever done? This
doesn’t have to be anything dastardly. If the worst
thing your character ever did was steal money from
his mother’s purse and lie to cover it up, that’s fine.
What’s important here is to consider something that
your character did that made him hate himself. The
superlative “worst” is something that the character
would apply. Choose a breaking point based on the
answer to this question.
• What is the worst thing your character can imagine himself
doing? We imagine ourselves in various scenarios to test
our own self-image against a hypothetical situation.
When children do it, it’s called imaginative play, but it
fills the same niche. What can you can character reasonably see himself doing, but still know that it would be
wrong? Can your character imagine killing someone in
self-defense? Torturing someone for information? How
about robbing a store with a gun?
• What is the worst thing your character can imagine someone else doing? Of course, we all know that people are
capable of some hideous atrocities. What tops your
character’s list? Serial murder? Rape? Torture? Spree
killing? If your character is extremely sheltered or misanthropic, he might have a skewed view, here; he might
hang on to some lofty, cerebral notion of “dishonor”
or “betrayal” as the nadir of human behavior.
• What has the character forgotten? In the World of Darkness, it’s next to impossible to grow up without any exposure to the supernatural. Decide what your character
saw and forgot. Did she see a vampire take the form
of mist and vanish? A man turn into a wolf? Maybe
she caught a glimpse of the God-Machine through
a door that should never have been propped open?
Describe this scene in as much detail as you can. This
is a breaking point that already occurred, but it helps
set a benchmark for what your character would have
to see in order to experience one now.
What is the most traumatic thing that has ever happened to the character?
While working as a escort, Anne once had a client who wanted to get rougher than she was okay with, and who didnt take 'no' for a answer. They struggled, she lost, he did what he wanted to her. Afterwards she had little recourse but to pick herself up, take a few days off work, hide the bruises as best she could, and go on with her life. Trying to complain would only get her 'laid off' from the escort agency, and the police would be worse. She consoles herself with the fact that he left a fat tip, but the night of abuse hit her harder than she is willing to admit to. She started carrying a knife, working out, and swore she wouldnt be a victim again.
