  • Just for fun; Weeaboo Ninja Gangrel

    Clan: City Gangrel

    Generation: 8

    Attributes/Abilities: Heavily focused on combat abilities, with some useful extras like Craft, Computer, Technology and Occult.

    Disciplines: On top of the City Gangrel standards (Celerity, Obfuscate, Protean), some knowledge of Potence and Obtenebration (ninja smoke, shadow arts... expect to piss off any Abyss Mystics you run into) thanks to a potent Lasombra with a sense of humour taking him under his wing.

    Merits: True Faith 1. His True Faith is towards the Beast (an acceptable "god" as of Tome of Secrets' Faith rules).
    Mark of Pure Blood; a "birth" mark on his hand, which he calls the "mark of the beast". It's a focus for his True Faith.
    Language: Japanese.

    Flaws: Hero Complex. Any lie or manipulation which abuses his belief that he is special or has a destiny is at -2 difficulty.

    Roleplaying tips: You're pretty obnoxious. Your goal is to become the greatest ninja in the world, and you believe you have a Great Destiny. You do have something special about you (the Faith and Mark) and you do not let anyone else forget about it. Your only saving grace is that you tone down your Superiority Complex when powerful Cainites are present, after a traumatic experience with a Bishop. You always carry your katana, your throwing stars and any gear you can get your hands on (pepper spray, caltrops etc.). You will turn ANYTHING into a dramatic confrontation if possible, and if Sabbat you have demanded Monomacy many times. You're the sort of person who does a backflip during a game of table tennis, the sort of person who screams when attacking.

    So you know many Otaku find the term "Weeaboo" offensive

      I'd say that the typical response is more of annoyance or the need to correct improper use of the word (as, in its original use as a word filter for "wapanese" on 4chan, it refers only to non-Japanese people trying very hard to seem Japanese in a manner that is pretty clearly crashing and burning in the attempt). Also, "otaku" itself is not really a choice word for self-description.

        How does having a 'mark of the beast' have anything to do with being weeb?

          Yeah, the whole point of the phrase weeaboo is that it is very different from a Japanophile. A Japanophile will speak Japanese, possibly love anime, maybe even collect medieval Japenese weapons... those activities, in an of themselves, aren't bad things. The whole concept of this character is a person who takes his love of Japanese culture and allows it to override sensible behaviour and negatively effect his life. And with weeaboos, the term is best applied if what they're doing is actually disrespectful to the culture. Naruto is not a great place to educate yourself on ninjitsu and asian mysticism, and the point of this character is that this is where they got their concepts of the Occult from. If he were someone who learned Japanese, martial arts and asian mysticism in a respectful way he wouldn't be an obnoxious character for use in a comedic over-the-top chronicle.

          But the point of this thread isn't to debate what is/isn't a weeaboo, the point is "hey, wouldn't it be somewhat comedic if you embraced a weeaboo in a shovel-party and they got some use out of those authentic weapons they've been collecting".

            It's to do with his hero complex. He thinks he's a chosen hero. He is, himself, a very specific anime trope, behaving like an over-the-top "I have a destiny" protagonist.

              It's snowflake seasoning. Anything that makes you unique.

              It's okay, their katanas folded a million times can cut through filthy Gaijin sound waves to prevent the word from ever reaching their ears.

                I'm not sure if naming him Hiro Protagonist would make him more weeaboo or less.

                  Exactly! He thinks he's special and unique, that's part of what's so aggravating about him.

                    Don't lots of Vampires, particularly Sabbat, choose new names? I'm thinking he gives himself a classic over-the-top ninja name like "Shadow-Star", and his packmates refuse to call him by that name.

                        That'd be a separate factor, and would correspond more to characters that have read Snow Crash, if anything.

                          Funny considering the word Otaku is offensive in and of itself and is an insult...

                            Heh, i played a similar concept once in a Camarilla game.

                            Generation: 8

                            Clan Brujah

                            Attributes/Abilities: Heavily focused on brawl ability, computers and academics

                            Disciplines: Celerity, potence & Fortitude.

                            Merits: Harmless (1), Lucky (3), Additional discipline (5) (Fortitude)
                            Language: Japanese.

                            Flaws: Botched presentation (1), Incomplete understanding (1), Expendable (1), Laughingstock (5)

                            Equipment: Katana replica, trenchcoat.

                            Roleplaying tips: You used to be "that" guy in many geek circles until the day came when you were embrace, then a epiphany happened. You decided your new vampire nature was a fresh start to be the super cool badass you always wanted to be. You bought the trenchcoat and a katana..... even though you dont have the slightest idea how to wield it you can punch people with it. After a run down of the whole camarilla you found your calling as a "Hound" after a more experience vampire describe the position as a "the bullets the sheriff shoot until problems go away". You will become the best bullet the sheriff ever shoots!

                              It sounds like the type of character that fellow PCs will stake and bury in an unmarked grave after a few sessions. And no, you cannot have True Faith without Humanity 9+, so City Gangrel should not apply. Also, the KJ are calling, they are coming for your soul.
