    Actually, I've always wanted to play someone who can incant this, and mean it:


    I am the very model of a sorcerer Celestial,
    I've studied Workings, demons, gods both Heaven's and Terrestrial,
    I'm quite good at summoning (be of spirits or the infernal) because I am enlightened (which I know is not at all humble),
    My powers and my studies range from eldritch to the practical, I am the very model of a sorcerer Celestial.


    Here's to you, Mordin Solus.

    Conceptually, his schtick is that he believes that, since the First Age, the Exalted Host has repeatedly made the same mistake: creating a world that can't function and survive without them. The Solars created wonders that couldn't be sustained in their absence. The Sidereals and Terrestrials created the Realm that can't be sustained in the Empress' absence. This guy is very focused on teaching martial arts to mortals as a way to elevate their minds and their bodies to allow them to build a Creation that doesn't center around the Exalted.

    He also wants to be the first Lunar to master a Sidereal Martial Art... that's a whole separate story

    (This will be the recreation of a 2E character. His Motivation was the master an SMA, and all of the other stuff described above built up over the course of a years-long campaign. Hopefully... I actually get a chance to recreate this character.)
    It'll be a long wait, but 3E Monkey Style will probably be coming in the Many-Faced Strangers companion book thanks to an upcoming stretch goal.

    (Along with Toad Style! I'm so excited for that one.)

    I really want to play with the idea of a Beastman Lunar whose Spirit Shape is NOT her heritage-animal. I assume her Hybrid form would stack the mutations from her "human" form with her Spirit Shape animal, without the Chimera Charm (because her actual Spirit Shape is still a single animal form). My favorite idea to implement this is a Snakewoman with a Mongoose Spirit Shape, because she became the ultimate incarnation of swift shadowy death!

    A kung-fu Elephant.

    Really just a very vague concept I had at one point that stuck with me. I'm not generally into Lunars.

    A swarm Lunar. One whose innermost self is a large swarm of insects. I can only imagine what would make a person become that, and I want to play that person.

    I want to make a Lunar cult leader, a dark patriarch leading his flock of oppressed mutants and beastmen against their tormentors. When the time is right, the children of the dark will boil forth from their lairs to drag down the Dragonbloods and their accomplices, and roar their victory into the skies over a mound of their foes' skulls.

    They're not heralds of an intergalactic swarm of locusts, and their fury is very justified; but that doesn't make them nice.

    Edit: This might work better with an Abyssal, but Lunars are coming out first.

    I want to make a No Moon necromancer, but sadly we are still going to be waiting a bit for necromancy to actually get published (though I guess there is always homebrew). I'll have to wait until all the charms are out to see what I would make based solely on whats in the book.

    I have many ideas, but I'm going to refine them when I see later chapters of the book and more charms. I really get the feeling there's going to be a lot of charms in this book that make you go "Oh maaaan I need to add that to my idea!" Like, for example, a Lunar who hunts prey from the mirrors of their target's boudoirs.

    A combat wombat you say...

    (Granted Digger is probably more of a No Moon, but she’s not bad in a fight)

    The blood brother of my Prasadi Air Aspect, a "guest" of the Pure Way who spends most of his life trying to moderate his Anathemic impulses and trying to be a good Immaculate and moral support of his more Realm-approved brother, a Pasiap's Stair graduate.

    Leaving out, of course, that he sees no paradox between his beliefs and being an adherent of Amatha Kinslayer. To him, the Realm has strayed from its dharma of bringing order to the world with its addiction to slavery, conquest, and lack of respect for other paths (plus how the Pure Way is regarded as a heretical faith, which obviously doesn't sit well with a Pure Way monk). The fact that Injira (the Dragon-Blood) is a rising star among military sorcerers makes him an excellent ally for inserting healthier strains of the Immaculate philosophy into the mainstream, with a hope of causing a schism that turns it against the Realm and/or negotiates with other Lunars rather than Wyld Hunting them as the first, last, and only resort. A task helped by the fact it wasn't actually a plan until Injira revealed he was also skeptical of the Wyld Hunt as a concept; he didn't so much "manipulate" as "convince Injira to forward some Pure Way writings to his soldiers and encourage him to voice his doubts when in a shikari."

    That, or an abnormally talented "mortal" graduate of the Heptagram, who hides the fact he's a No Moon who deeply resents the very concept of House Ragara behind normal sorcerer weirdness ("Oh! Did you not know a mortal who becomes a sorcerer often develops mutations from Essence beyond their ken? That's why I have portee ivory fur on my ears.")

    After seeing (some of) the War Charms, I'm considering an Army Ant Totem general, who's an awe-inspiring war-leader but is also unsettlingly inhuman in aspect.
