    I'm gonna go against the grain here.

    This is an excellent villain concept! The mortal sorcerer in his tower, seething at the Dragons for granting centuries of life and cosmic power to random teenagers but not to him, plotting to steal the power of the Immaculate Dragons for himself? That's classic Pulp!

    The key to do this right is to make it clear this is a Villain Move. You're going to need to send demons out to kidnap five children with good breeding who are destined to Exalt. You're going to need to capture and dissect still-living Dragonblooded in your laboratory....

    No pressure. Art and Game are for joy and fun-if it starts turning into a slog, take a break! No reason to beat yourself up....

    Lilo is a good fit, I think, for Zenith. She's all about Integrity and Brawl and Presence, and the thing where you take a creature of Darkness and redeem it by teaching it about Love and Family is solid Zenith material-an Eclipse would have tricked or enslaved Stitch, not taught him to dance.

    I'd call Mulan a solid Night with War favored.

    Merida I'd probably run as a Lunar, honestly. Her story is about rebellion against the status quo and choosing her own freedom over the demands of her station, and about the difference between a monster and a man-even if she's not the...

    Exigents can definitely be tactically Exalted. It's sorta our Strawmaiden's backstory.

    "Crap, the Raksha are invading, an Exalt sure would be tactically useful right about now, your Divine Sunniness."

    "The Raksha? I hate those guys! Here, little field God, have some of my fantastic Divine Mojo."

    This is Nexus. There’s always someone living upstairs or next door who might have heard you through thin walls. Aside from nosy or sharp-eared neighbors, the Guild has spies, the Council has spies, various criminal syndicates have spies…it’s usually dangerous to assume you’re not being eavesdropped on at any given point in time. Well, nobody eavesdrops on random street rats like you, but on wealthy alchemists? The odds are good.

    “Bringing a couple of guards into my neighborhood might be...

    Hm. The smart thing to do here is not break formation. We're already injured, we shouldn't be attempting heroics.

    But...well...let's not do the smart thing. Because, gods dammit, we swore Oaths, and the reward for loyal service to one's liege shouldn't be dying in battle while one's liege stands by and watches! I say we offer a quick prayer to Luna (something along the lines of, "I don't know what you want from me, but I'm betting it's not getting murdered by random bandits, so help me out here!") and wade in and see what our fancy new spear can do. We only need to drive...

    replied to Missing from Exalted?
    Hm. Thinking about Changeling...

    Well...you don't see too many heroic kids in Exalted. Like, Exaltation can happen at an early age, there's several examples of that...but there's no baby Heracles strangling serpents in his bed or Kirikou going on adventures as a toddler. Godbloods can certainly cover some of this territory, but Exalted's mythological and anime influences both often feature young kids with ridiculous power coming to terms with it as they grow up. You CAN tell that as a Dragonblooded or a Solar story...but it's not really the default. Given that Exaltation often features...

    I would really love to seem some human take on the Ochilike. Humans possessed by spirits, but it's a cooperative thing.

    That sounds like some really fun narrative space, especially if it comes with restrictive taboos/bans the spirit requires you to follow to channel its power that can be exploited by your enemies if they figure them out.

    Well, I'd allow it...but you may want to consider that you're creating a new species whose mutations breed true here. I recommend drama with agricultural gods over this attack on their purview by lowly weed gods.
