Alright-- haven't yet viewed all the source material, but I have a few concepts about which I'd greatly appreciate your opinion or feedback. Of course, these would have to be molded into creation rules and a pantheon, but they're just ideas for now. I'm kind of leaning towards A or B.
Bounty hunter/vigilante, Scion of Vengeance
-Former soldier from MO, raider. Left unit before the war was over because of atrocities witnessed, seeks vengeance/balance between law and chaos (as both have the same potential for evil).
-Personality: solitary, but secretly very lonely, this young woman's tortured past returns to her frequently, and she can only stem its hold by burning evil out of this world. As likely to assassinate a gang-leader as to depose a governor, she has no respect for authority or code. She'd be a hardcore gunslinger and tracker, bordering on self-destructive.
-Appearance: Irish features, boasting a lovely figure despite a rugged lfestyle. She's young in years, but ancient in the eyes, scarred and hardened in the subtle ways, a startling contrast that represents the allure of vengeance contrasted with its grisly reality.
Mystic or mesmerist, Scion of the Dead
-Absinthe-addicted, nightmare-plagued visionary haunted by visitations from the dead and visions of others' sin, she could be a gypsy, scholar from Europe, or heiress on hiatus in the dry climate for 'health reasons'.
-Personality: while fond of 'finer things', isn't ashamed of 'roughing it' and isn't likely to complain despite the personal tortures and horrific images she considers routine. Somewhat of a nihilist, a bit of a schemer... will plot and insinuate, preferring to avoid direct confrontation. Propensity for the exotic and collector of curiosities. May actually travel with a carnival, or perhaps just live out of a trunk, or travel frequently and keep her remote home in the hands of a hulking, illiterate, but earnest caretaker when away on trips.
-Appearance: sleek, sexy, fanciful dress-- exotic features and characteristics. Slight accent, haughty carriage and a shrewd, knowing smile. Mid-to-late 20's, ebony hair and pale skin. Perhaps piercings, tattoos, jewelry-- totems of cultural mysticism other than her own.
Circus performer, Scion of Prophecy
-Street-savvy girl, orphaned since her early childhood, with remarkable physical abilities and abnormal reaction times, balance, and courage, raised by performers and wanderers. Seeking a destiny.
-Personality: Adventurous and utterly fearless, this girl's catlike grace and subtle glow of charm wins her admirers to the point of risk. She's not very inhibited, though she is often brooding-- especially when alone. She travels light, preferring to stay out of sight when alone so as not to attract unnecessary dangers.
-Appearance: muscular and youthful, with dusky eastern skin that hints at a hodgepodge of a lineage. She dresses in worn, mended clothing except when preforming. No older than 19.
