*giggles*  Sorry for the bit of rug pulling!  I was just talking about the game a bit with Myr last night and commented that I'd be interested, but I didn't have a good idea off the top of my head.  She suggested the warden bit, and an old NPC that I had run in a completely different game.  So, its really all her fault, not mine at all!  *nods and hides!*

Okay, a much more in depth character, now that I've had time to think about it more.

Hitomi Saito

Tall at 5 foot 10 inches, Hitomi doesn't look like a classic Japanese beauty.  Her face has a more European cast to it, but is softened by her Oriental ancestry.  Bright green almond shaped eyes, much larger than normal, draw attention, and it's worth noting that they don't have an emphatic fold.  Long, black, almost knee-length silky hair falls down her back, and would reach her knees if she left it loose, rather than the more usual braid.  She usually wears black jeans, a slightly revealing black t-shirt that bares her midriff, and a thin jacket.  Common additions are a small backpack, sunglasses, and a black ball cap.

5 Transmutation
4 Seductress
2 Evocation
2 Jeweler
2 Shinto

Hitomi was the daughter of Kazumi Saito, a miko in Tokyo.  She never knew her father, as he only appeared in Kazumi's life once, but she did know he was half-fae.  She grew up expecting to take over after her mother at the shrine, going to school and such as she did, as well as learning magic from her mother.  Things were going well until about her 15th birthday.  One day a pair of men in gray cloaks arrived, calling themselves Wardens of the White Council.  They explained that her mother had been breaking the Laws of Magic by using spells to calm people in the shrine.  They gave her a warning and left, saying they would be keeping a close eye on her.

Hitomi began keeping an eye on her mother, pleading with her to take the warning to heart.  Kazumi tried, but gradually weakened more and more, until, on Hitomi's 18th birthday, the argument exploded.  She ended up binding Hitomi against her will, and that was enough for the Wardens.  Kazumi was killed on the spot, and Hitomi grabbed a few items and fled, afraid of the memories, and the Wardens.  For a short time she made a living around Tokyo, constantly moving and using her talent for Transmuting to get enough funds to survive, until the Yakuza began to take an interest in her.  Frightened even more, she did something foolish.  She contacted the youngest queen of the Winter Court for aid.

Hitomi tries to forget the year of service that she had to give the Winter Court, alternating blushing or pale-faced at the memories.  It's enough to say she wouldn't go back.  When she was released from the NeverNever, she found herself in the United States.  Fortunately she'd done well with English in school, and she made a living in much the way she had in Tokyo.  With some careful work she even managed to get citizenship over the 4 years she has been here.  It took some time to get to Las Vegas, but she reasoned that it was the best place to lie low, as well as find women who might be willing to let her stay the night in exchange for some company.

Oh dear! I'll just have to punish Myr then, won't I? *Grins.*
And I'll have either my character up here or PM'd to Jerry later today. He's got a vague idea though, so he can begin his plotting. <3

Ok, I've added a name and bio. Question on the cliches .. could I roll the shooting and martial arts into one general cliche .. Very Bad Man (Ex Spook)?

I think I could allow that, though, since it's less specialized, you may not receive as many bonuses. Like, getting a really super gun would give bonuses to Shooting, but not as much to Very Bad Man.

I really don't think Cliches are meant to be all that specific in Risus. If you look at the example characters and sample Cliches, they're all more professions than skills.

Leritraxas "Ms. Beckett" Leticia Beckett

Debutante (and whelpling) of the infamous Beckett family (long time owners of the Excalibur casino-hotel-resort), Leticia flits from soiree to champagne breakfasts, dining and shmoozing with many of the city's white collar and celebrity residents. Through family ties, wit, a swaying of hips, and a quick tongue, Leticia swiftly slithered her way into grace of the creme de la creme of Vegas' partylife.

Recently however, her father (Salazar Beckett) came to the abrupt conclusion that he had been sharing his wealth with his offspring. This would simply not do for a dragon. Their bond remained too strong to simply let her go cold-turkey however, and so he now employs her as a trustworthy attendant, something rare to find for an established businessman.

Leticia likes pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Also, literally bathing or sleeping on her (father's) riches and being treated and pampered whenever she can. Though she'd rather wine and dine, she's no Paris Hilton and can change tack quickly in any situation, be it social or otherwise. She spends much of her time among the high and mighty simply observing, only ever letting herself truly relax when she's alone.

Dragon  5
Smooth Talker  4
Keen Senses  3
Socialite  3



EDIT: Added the photo, didn't really want to post to mention, since we have an OOC thread now. If we end up posting photos there, I'll stick it there too, I'm just being lazy with my appearance and physical description.

Thats ok. I can take a point from Martial Arts and boost VBM to 5, and then add the other couple of points elsewhere.

I'm sure I can think of lots of interesting things that might fall under the use of the Very Bad Man cliche :) 

I'll decide what to do with the other couple of points later.

OOC thread up; I couldn't transfer the pictures properly, but the sheets are there, in their most current format. If you want them changed, there's still time, so let me know.
