I've added a 'Invokes and Compels' section to my charsheet to flesh out what I think/expect Red's Aspects to be, well, Invoked and Compelled for.
I was personally planning on leaving the compels up to GM's discretion and Compels something that I bring up as things happen, especially since her aspects are pretty straightforward:High Aspect:
Ruthless, Badass Veteran
Explanation: "Hur dur I'm Solid snake with boobies"
Invoke: Does better at violent stuff; lining up shots, sneaking about, torturing the crap out of someone, etc.
Compel: Might do violent stuff without thinking about it; could kill people before asking the others, can be excessively brutal with imprisoned enemies, etc.Trouble Aspect:
May All AGIs Divide By Zero
Explanation: "TITANs started out as AGI, so I hate all AGI now."
Invoke: Honestly can't think of one not covered by the Aspect Below.
Compel: Can't let her guard down around AGI, purposely avoids working with them if possible, and would almost NEVER ask a favor of one. This aspect is why she doesn't use a Muse, and would crop up every time her lack of one inconveniences her.Other Aspect:
Massive Trust Issues
Explanation: "What if this is all just another setup? I'm not getting caught by Shock trooper insurgents twice!"
Invoke: She does better shutting people down in situations that requires her to trust someone (Psychic suggestion, people persuading her, people lying to her, etc.)
Compel: She sometimes thinks people are lying for no good reason.Other Aspect:
Explanation: "Listen, I've seen some things, man. SOME REALLY MESSED UP THINGS."
Invoke: Her horrifying past is something actually relevant to the situation.
Compel: She ends up saying this sort of crap to someone she's supposed to be comforting. It does not help, especially with small children. She also might have PTSD flashbacks and such.
And since I think the 'Crossing Paths' thing is a really good chargen idea, here are the major sections of Red's life so far. Feel free to propose a connection wherever you think it's interesting/makes sense.
Jane is a very un-fun kind of girl. In fact, fun kinda stresses her out. She spends her days either maintaining her youth/physique, working, or maintaining her equipment. If she runs out of things to actually do, she'll probably spend time reading combat weapon magazines or, quite literally, stare at a wall and do nothing.
Because of she doesn't really leave her tiny, spartan, and cramped apartment without a reason, her potential path-crossing is pretty limited.We go to the same Gym
- Jane's morph is special because it's actually hers
. She treats it like a temple, and works out regularly to keep it in peak condition. It would probably only work with Biomorphs who prefer Au-Naturale alternatives to keeping in shape.One of my Ops involved you
- Jane doesn't do work for seedy sorts like Cognite, but she does
do work for Firewall, since their work has the interests of other people in mind. Jane might have done an op related to getting you into Firewall. Still, you might not have even gotten a good look at her. She's pretty sneaky.I somehow knew you on earth?
- Very unlikely, yet self-explanatory.I don't know you, you dont know me. Good.
- This is your first time meeting the reclusive Jane, who will prefer this. This is the most likely option out of all of them.
