The original was actualy made for a Laurel K. Hamilton fan ficiton, and she managed to contact the unseelie court for sword training in return for a blank check favor.  The story was about the calling in of that favour. 

And it wasn't a Fiona, but a Liam.  The house that was banished for protecting mortals from the sidhe.  The idea was that, in order to have Melee five, she'd need a rather extraordinary teacher, such as an imortal.  I had the idea that she might have studdied under a Liam Sidhe who never fled to Arcadia at the Shattering but had been wandering the world since the Mythic AGe, battling creatures of the night and occaisionaly taking aprentices, such as a young mage intrested in sword play and willing to fight to protect the inocent. 

Another possiblity is that said Sidhe had been a friend and lover of hers through multiple incarnations of her Avatar.

Heh, now I REALY like that idea. 

Hm...  My answer to how a two intelgence person would be an A/B student is aplying herself and the fact that school is easy, but given that my own intelgence is probably more like 3, I'm biased.

I can understand her getting good grades, but being in the top tier is streaching it.

Melee 5 is really kinda pushing it, Muse -- your background makes it seem like your character spent far more time learning and doing things other than combat.  Creeper may disagree, but come on -- this is Mage/Changeling, not Exalted.  (Besides, the Seven League Boots already make you absurdly good in combat.)

By the way, Creeper, I think I may just finish up my character after all.  I find I've got plenty of time, so look for a more completed background in the next few days once I figure out what I was doing.

Catalina Waters:
Height 6’1”   
Weight 180lbs
Hair: Curly with streaks of strawberry blonde and auburn, falls to the small of her back.  Often pulled back with a sword shaped hair pin that, when removed from the barette, becomes a full sized magically enhanced claymore, a gift from Anais.
Eyes:  Jade Green
Skin: Caucasian, but well tanned.
Outfits: She wears a chocker of green jade medallions linked by golden wire as her signature, and Anais has provided a matching barrette with a sword hair pin that transforms into an enchanted claymore.  Her favorite outfit is a white lace top, bare midriff, with either a light jade green skirt, knee length, or darker slacks, and a forest green long coat.  She has a predilection for combat boots, but also favors ballet slippers.  Like many pagans, Catalina prefers to go bare foot in casual situations.

Car: Old pink Cadilac sports sedan with a powerful engine, lovingly restored and maintained.

Catalina Waters thinks her father is Emanuel De Vasques of Barcelona, but could have been any number of men at that party.  Her mother, Abagail Waters, was a witch, a hippie, a dedicated member of the SCA, and a little bit too fond of marijuana and group sex.
She didn't know her pills had failed 'til three months after the party at which Catalina is believed to have been conceived, but loved her well all the same, settling down a bit to be a more responsible parent, getting a real job since her teachers refused to let her profit from the Craft, and working hard.  She gave her daughter her religion and magic.   

Unfortunately she eventually passed on her drug habit as well.

Catalina had her mother's bright mind and curiosity, and was also a serious athlete.  Early on in life she learned swordsmanship at the SCA, martial arts, gymnastics, and dance at the Y.

She did some singing too.  It wasn't a serious pursuit, but it got her into the theater, which she fell in love with utterly.

Unfortunately, in high school both Cat’s and her mother's marijuana habits were starting to get into the way.  (Possibly her mother’s latest boyfriend was an even worse druggie.)  Her mother also lost her job.  After being an A/B student all her life, Cat's senior year she dropped all her extra curricular activities to dance at a sleazy strip club to earn money to pay the bills and get her next fix.

She flunked out of high school her senior year and, a few months later, was caught reeking of marijuana with a lap dance customer's member in her mouth when the police raided her work.

After a month in jail, she got out and into rehab.  In rehab, she spent a whole lot of time in the gym sweating all the shit out of her system.

After completion of rehab, and a personal oath to the Lord and Lady never to touch anything stronger than alcohol again, she got out of rehab with a clean bill of health and a huge debt.  It was at that point where she started dreaming of a swan and her Craft started getting…

Stronger.

Out of rehab, she was approached by Rose Du’Paxe, a French Verbena, who mentored her further in the Craft while introducing her to the world of the Awakened and getting her a job dancing for a high priced and respectable strippers firm.  She was no longer expected to touch her clients, though she could make an extra five hundred a night by doing a lesbian dance with her friend (Jane?) who turned out to be a house Liam Knight.

She and her lover saved up and trained for two years, then went on a two year training trip in Europe and china, learning more of the martial arts and the occult world.  They trained under an ancient House Liam Swordmistress named Adrihol, and received Seven Leauge Boots and a sidhe-forged claymore in return for an oath to always go to the aid of innocent fae in danger and to aid House Liam whenever asked or whenever need was apparent. 

She has now returned to her home town and resumed her job, only to discover that the ascension war seems won.  She breezed through a college degree in Theater with a specialty in Fight Direction and a minor in Dance.  Now a member of the American Association of Fight Directors, she’s looking for a new challenge, either something arcane to hold her here, or a trip to LA to work in the movies.

She is now 28, but actually 27 since she spent a year in a Freehold.

Alrighty, I'll get to it. Keep in mind that none of this is a personal attack on you Muse, I'm just trying to undestand the character and get her to fit.

Often pulled back with a sword shaped hair pin that, when removed from the barette, becomes a full sized magically enhanced claymore, a gift from Anais.

This ability isn't on your sheet.

When did she awaken? At what point in her life, exactly?

You forgot Resonance, nature and demenor

And mages only get wonders, and pay in accordance to how much it would cost, sphere-wise. Not counting the shapeshifting ability, the sword is at least Wonder 2. It can be a fae treasure, but it still counts as a wonder CC wise. That's why they get such a broad background.

I still don't see anything that would justify Catalina a world champion in melee. A score of 3, maybe, 4 at most. You don't get that good in just 5 years, no matter your teacher. Is it really that important for your concept?

Sorry, I meant to pull the barette properlty of the sword out.  It was just suposed to be a sword charged with glamour to slay supernatural creatures and, if you follow the rule that any treasure enchatns it's wearer, keep her in the dreaming. 

She awakened when she made an oath before lord and lady never to touch drugs again.  AT that poitn she noticed that her Craft had sudenlly become vastly more powerful, and she started having dreams of the White Swan. 

Okay, I hadn't heard you coment on the sword originaly, I thoguht that was Jefepato for soem odd reason.  I can take it down to Four.  One of ehr reasons for being that good is that she had such an ancient and formidable warrior for a teacher. Another reason is that she had such a great passion for it as to become a fight director when most people in the modern world scoff at swords in favour of guns.

1. What are your goals as a player? What do you want your character to do or experience?

2. What are your Character's goals? What does he or she want?

3. What paticular Genre do you want for this game? A Mystery? An Adventure? How much sex? Little? A lot? When it makes sense for the plot?

4. Anything you want to add?

Oh, and please list your Freebie point spending.

Resonance is easy, just pick 1 dot of any resonance and add and adjective. Like dancing or dreamy or something that matches your character

1. What are your goals as a player? What do you want your character to do or experience?

Hm...  Well, if my co-writers would enjoy it, I'd like her to be ravished once or twice, but there should be more to the story than constant ravishing and avenging herself on the monsters. 

It would be fun to play out some romance, but I also want her to grow as a mage and a swordswoman and an actress, with some chances for swashbuckling swordplay with a claymore and athame. 

2. What are your Character's goals? What does he or she want?

Let's see, she wants to fight the ascencion war, complete her doctorate in theater, become a member of the american association of fight directors, elevate the art of Burlesque back into an art and the same for the art of the barbarian movie, directing and perhaps staring in a few of the second in such a way that she weaknes the hold of the Technocracy by awakening imagination, art, and sensuality in all her viewers. 

3. What paticular Genre do you want for this game? A Mystery? An Adventure? How much sex? Little? A lot? When it makes sense for the plot?

Adventure with a splash of mystery and a moderate amount of sex is good. 

4. Anything you want to add?

Oh, and please list your Freebie point spending.

Resonance is easy, just pick 1 dot of any resonance and add and adjective. Like dancing or dreamy or something that matches your character

Would flirtatiously dancing resonance be apropriate?

Alright folks, I've come to a descision. I'm closing down Bad Dreams due to lack of interest. There's no longer any justification to having a game of this size that no one is really interested in. I'm going to ask the mods to move this into the closed game section tommorow... or in a few days. Whatever.

Now, that doesn't have to be the end for my only two players. We can still continue (or start, for muse) in the NCES section in fun and games. I admit my interest has waned over the months, but you did go through character creation, and you deserve to have your stories brought to a conclusion at least.

I don't think so. I just think that having a game like this gives the impression that I might be accepting new players and putting lots of effort into making it work. Which I no longer plan to.

I will continue (and start) the threads for you two, however. If you're still interested in playing.

Oh, and muse, you could have seductive or dancing for your resonance, but not both.
