A new old WoD Vampire LARP is starting up here in Seattle. The GMs have asked everyone to submit three character concepts of at least 3 paragraphs long and all must be neonates. These are the character concepts I've just submitted. I know at least one will be familiar to some of you.Heirs to the Fall: Masquerade Concepts - In order of preference: Concept 1: Doctor Alice Singleton PH. D.Real Name: Alice SingletonPublic Clan: TremereBorn in 1970, Alice was the quintessential middle class smart girl. Always the brain, never the cheerleader, she set the grade curve for her class without completely ostracizing herself due to her pleasant if distracted demeanor.She was in college at 18 (1988), going to the University of Washington, majoring in Biology with a minor in chemistry. She graduated at the top of her class and was immediately accepted into the graduate program (1992). She had a Masters in Biology, specialty in hematology within 2 years. 2 years after that, she had a masters in biogenetics. For her thesis work, Alice moved to Costa Mesa California in 1996 to become a research assistant at Synthetic Blood International, Inc. She put together a research paper on the results of synthetic blood on the blood disease Thalassemia. It took three years for her research to be complete and another year for the thesis to be written and presented. Alice Singleton became Doctor Alice Singleton in the year 2000. From 2000-2004, she worked fulltime at the Synthetic Blood International, Inc as a Research Scientist. Her focus was a new and better synthetic blood for general use. In 2004, she had returned to Seattle to work at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center continuing her research into finding a cure for Thalassemia using synthetic blood. Her research still included the creation of a better synthetic blood for general use.Throughout her college life, Alice was watched for her smarts and her interests by members of Clan Tremere. She was ghouled by the scientist, John Berloni, she was working for in 1997. John was an exacting taskmaster but fair. He rewarded success and punished failure due to mistakes. In 2000, Alice was willingly embraced, enamored of the idea of being able to research her ideas for decades without her failing mind or body getting in the way. She was a good acolyte to John, working very hard for him and Clan Tremere. She and John moved to Seattle in 2004 to continue their research in a more private setting in one of the most technologically advanced medical centers in the United States. She and John worked together closely until mid-2005 when, one night, he ordered her to pack and return to the chantry in Costa Mesa, CA immediately. He gave her no explanations and would not accept refusal. The last thing he did before she left was give her a letter that formally released her as his child.Once back in Costa Mesa, she worked in her private lab in the chantry on their research as well as on the idea of a synthetic blood that kindred could survive on (at least for a short time) and occasionally consulted with Synthetic Blood International for exceptional fees. She has not heard from her sire or any of her chantry peers since she left Seattle and the borders to the city were closed. It is now 2006 and the chantry leader has just ordered her back to Seattle. Alice is looking forward to seeing John and resuming their work on curing Thalassemia.Misc• Adam Singleton - Father - Alive - Living in Seattle• Heather Chegwin Singleton- Mother - Living in Seattle• She is still known by her mortal name and reputationMysteries and Other Things• Alice has a little quirk. As most very intelligent people are, she is a little bit off her rocker. Not a lot. Just enough to make life interesting. She is obsessed with her reflection. Obsessed with making sure she has one and those around her have one. People with reflections are real people. People without reflections are unreal people and she is certain the unreal people want to make her one of them. She just does not trust anyone who does not have a reflection. People with a reflection but no body are mirror people. Alice rarely encounters the mirror people so she cannot tell if they are friend or foe. Alice always has at least one compact mirror with her at all time. She favors reflective jewelry and is distracted by her reflection in any surface, pausing to look at herself. She has had this obsession since before her embrace. The embrace intensified it. (*hands the GMs a nice big 'Hit Me' stick*)• Alice wears a family gold and onyx signet ring with AS on it. Her grandfather, Adrian Singleton, gave it to her when he finally accepted that she was going to be an only child and he would not have a grandson to give it to. He told her that he wanted her to wear it until it could be passed on to a male Singleton heir. It was very important to him. It could be nothing more than an old man's desire to keep the family lineage going. Or it could be something more. (*hands the GMs a nice big 'Hit Me' stick*)
