  • 1001 interesting character ideas

    Let's compile character ideas for either storytellers or for player inspiration. Please try to put one idea per post to keep the ideas and post numbers in line.

    1) Vampire who was a chef in life and maintains his humanity by cooking and eating incredible meals (eat food merit). Of course, in the end it is futile as the food is all disgustingly vomited up; but hey, that's just a metaphor for humanity in the body of the beast. As the character loses humanity, perhaps they start experimenting with including human blood in some of the courses...

    2) Tzimisce elder who fancies himself a god and has a deep seated need to be worshiped and loved. Embraces and blood bonds fledglings and uses Vicissitude to turn them into bloated, immobile vitae manufacturing monstrosities that continuously bleed into the local water supply, blood bonding thousands of morals - which then worship the Tzimisce as a prophet/ deity.

      3) Malkavian conspiracy nut who uses Dominate to make the people he feeds on think they were abducted by aliens.


      Remi. she/her. game designer.

        4) European Gentleman (or lady) born hundreds of years ago. Through an unfortunate series of events, he fell into torpor shortly after his embrace. After rising from torpor in modern nights, he must deal with modern society and technology, as well as his vampiric nature and the fact that the world he used to know is dead.

          5) A Gangrel who, one lonely night, pricked his finger and watched the spiders and ants drink his blood. Fascinated, he kept feeding vermin in his haven, taking care of them, playing with them like pets. Years later, he has amassed swarms of blood bound vermin (mice, scorpions, spiders, etc) that have lived long beyond their natural lives, grown substantially larger due to the effects of his vitae, and (though not truly intelligent) they can sense anything threatening their master. Be careful if you speak with him when the swarms are around - they would die to protect him from any perceived threat.

            6) A Malkavian who works as a professional Anti-Witness Protection assassin. Uses his Contacts to find and dispose of witnesses before they testify in court, on behalf of organized crime interests and wealthy patrons. Has a quirk about collecting the eyes of his victims, believing them to be the key to insight into their visions (Auspex 3 helps in this). Amassed quick a collection of eyes, as well as a collection of secrets and blackmail material on his clients. Suffice to say, this Lunatic dances on the knife's edge of discovery or reprisal, for multiple reasons.

              7) Lasombra Vitaephile with a fascination towards the ocean (as is common in the Clan). Has taken to experimenting on vessels, to capture the essence of the sea in their blood. Feeding them fish and seaweed, extracting blood under greater degrees of barometric pressure, exposing them daily to ocean air, and making them drink sea water (not too much obviously; the saltwater could overpower the blood's taste, in addition to wasting/killing the vessel). All of these experiments are performed on the Lasombra's private ship.

                8) A beautiful Assamite vizier who poses as a newly embraced bimbo Toreador sexpot (think Kelly Bundy level). That way everyone underestimates her as being too dumb to know anything other than following orders while her sugar daddies and "manipulators" take the blame for everything she has done. For bonus points, give her the merit, unbondable.

                9) A Caitiff with Vicissitude and a specialty in special effects make-up has managed to get some grudging respect in the Camarilla thanks to her talents in making her unaging kind look like they can and designing realistic masks for Nosferatu.

                  10) A Tremere who got a brain injury (either through an accident, battle wound or botched spell) that has dropped his intelligence score from 4 to 1. How does he handle this new turn in life with a clan that values intelligence?

                  11) A Ventrue antitribu who can only drink from animals. Due to her clan curse, she just can't drink from humans.

                    12) A Ghoul who was left paralyzed due to his master's foolishness has managed to expertly play upon the Vampire's guilt. To the point that the Vampire is now his broken-spirited caretaker who performs his personal political schemes for him.

                      13) A Tremere who hunts Vampire hunters. Thamaturgy, rituals and vampiric abilities rolled into one vengeful package.

                      14) A cruel, sociopathic Mortal is turned into a Malkavian. While the embrace has cured his anti-social disorder, it has now been replaced with all-consuming guilt over all the horrible things he's done. So when his guilt doesn't leave him in a depressed state, he is on an obsessive quest to set things right.

                        15) A Setite who made a personal challenge to himself only to tempt mortals and vampires towards behaviors they wanted to do anyway. He refuses to introduce any new temptations or encourage courses of action the person hasn't already considered. To him, these people are obviously prevented from fulfilling their true desires by the machinations of the Aeons. Pushing them towards actions alien to them would be no better than doing the Aeons' jobs for them. But if some mortal is suppressing a desire to lay with children - or a vampire is suppressing their desire to diablerize their sire - the Setite should help them overcome this hindrance to their wants.

                          16) Travis: Born during the 50's, you were a rebelious teenage. Kicking the trashcans and breaking the laws. Everything Changed when you meet John Lydon, Steve Jones , Paul Cook And Glen Mantlock. The high speed, the violence and everything else made sense, The world changed as Travis became the Sixth Sex Pistol...Until every one figured out he was an Arsehole (Charisma 3, Apparience 1, intelligence 1 and ADHD) . He was soon embraced, Due do this he had to quit the band (or rather the band fired him since he was only aviable by night, he played no instruments, he constantly got into fights and the band constantly gave him wrong addresses of shows so he would never arrive).
                          Travis is So Fucking Stupid that he doesnt care about telling people he is a vampire -But he is so ugly that everyone believes he is just drunk saying bullshit- He is considered a Court Fool or Jester. He is ALWAYS horny -And he NEVER Gets LAID-. Being a Brujah doesnt helps either, specially since his Berserker button involves talking about Sid Vicious (since Sid replaced him after he was fired)

                            17) A Nosferatu elder (whose been patron for the PCs) has been watching over the descendants of a blind man who showed her kindness when she was a neonate. Over the centuries, the family believes that they have a guardian angel watching over them. It seems that her Dark Fate flaw is kicking in and she knows that the dark forces she's been fighting her entire unlife will finally destroy her. All the party has to do is deliver her final message to the family (who once they found out what's happening to her, decide that they need to protect their angel as thanks for all that she has done.)

                              Daughter of Cacophony metal-singer (think Otep or Walls of Jericho level growler) with heavy Fortitude and medium Melpominee. Her actions in the musical industry are slowly changing the way people view heavy metal and her travels to Eastern Europe to discover the origins and holy land of Death Metal led her to meet with the Sabbat. Her connection to the ancient Sabbat of Europe led her to view the Camarilla as rather antagonistic to music and progress, giving her the reason to fight them. She does underground style tours and has her eyes set on Nashville, TN to make it the mecca for the other Daughters and Sons while also staking out the Buckle of the Bible Belt as land to raise the USA's first Black Cathedral. Just imagine those mosh pits.
