Taste of Death: once per scene, if you inflict enough stress and consequences to kill a victim from feeding, you may take an immediate “free” recovery period equal to an extra scene, clearing your stress track and mild physical consequences
Feeding Frenzy: when in the presence of heightened emotions and willing victims, you feel a nearly uncontrollable urge to feed, the GM may call for Discipline rolls to resist the urge
Feeding Dependency + 1
Limited Reserves: at the end of a scene whenever you have heavily exerted your powers you much check to see if you experience feeding failure (attack with a strength equal to the total refresh cost of the abilities used, Discipline to defend)
- If you succeed, you may clear out your hunger stress track
- If you fail, you take hunger stress as though you’d suffered an attack. If you have physical or mental consequence slots open, you may use them to buy off the stress. If unable to do so, you must lose access to a number of your powers up to a refresh cost equal to the amount of stress taken. These options can be combined.
- If you have no powers left to lose and are taken out by a feeding failure, you are actually taken out
Failure Recovery: you can recover your lost abilities at a rate of up to one point per scene so long as you opt out of the scene, essentially because you are spending it feeding; all lost abilities can be regained in one scene if you feed so forcefully as to kill a victim, in either case all hunger stress is cleared and any consequences that resulted from feeding failure vanish regardless of the usual recovery time
Read the Surface: ( Empathy Stunt) You can get a sense of someone quickly when trying to “read” them (pg 129). Your first attempt to read someone takes less than a minute of interaction, instead of the usual ten. Any subsequent efforts with the same person do not enjoy this benefit.
Born in England. Her mother, Victoria, had tried to sleep her way to power, and got a lot of attention in the English royalty, but was sold out by her brother ‘Valentino’ who used his betrayal of her to set himself up in the states under the name Coronado.
Victoria became a bitter prostitute to support herself and ended up giving birth to a string of children who she raised to be envious and hate the brother Valentino.
Elizabeth was raised in this impoverished home with an single older adult brother “William” who loved and cared for Elizabeth and did his best to raise her right.
Aspect: Poor but fiercely loyal street rat
When Elizabeth was 12, her mother sold her daughter’s virginity to a rich lecherous creep and forced her to sleep with him. Since it was her first intimate act and there was no love involved anywhere the man did not survive the encounter, Elizabeth officially became a full white court Vampire, and her mother kept the money plus more spoils from the man’s body
When Elizabeth was 15 her mother finally pressured William to go seek out revenge on Valentino in America leaving Elizabeth alone with Victoria.
When Elizabeth turned 20, William stopped corresponding with their mother about the progress of his “mission” and in fact stopped correspondence at all. Elizabeth’s once again pregnant mother immediately informed her that William had been killed by Valentino and began grooming her daughter to seek revenge on Valentino and his children were William had failed.
Eventually Elizabeth was fed up with her mother’s antics and fled the country in search of what had become of her brother and protector. On her search she met one of the dreaded Coronados, Regina, who was longing for freedom from her father’s oppressive control, and Elizabeth learned that the family she was raised to hate and destroy was not fully the uniformed evil her mother had said it was (even if their Patriarch did seem just as bad as her mother described). Elizabeth convinced Regina to flee and helped her to get away before their paths forced them into separate ways.
Regina unfortunately did not know anything of her brother over the past 5 years so Elizabeth just kept looking, through the experience had let her know she had made an ally and a friend who would help her.
A year later word from Regina reached her about her establishing a base of power in New Orleans and inviting Elizabeth to come assist her in building New Orleans into the own domain. Regina mentioned that getting such connections should make the search for her lost brother’s location much easier.
With nothing to lose and everything to gain, Elizabeth came down to New Orleans to aide Regina and hopefully find her brother at long last.
Aspect: Raised by her lost Brother William
