Changeling character concepts

So I got bored one night waiting for Meagan and Jeremy (sorry guys), and decided to sit down and make a Changeling character for each Seeming and Court. I figured I'd share them with y'all.

Some of them are re-makes of other characters, which will be... er... obvious once I post them, I think. But I'll try and note inspirations.


BEAST
Blessing: 8-agains on Animal Ken
Curse: -4 on untrained Mental skills

Concept: Animal shelter volunteer
Unicorn – Runnerswift
Probable Court: Spring

VIRTUE Charity
VICE Pride

INT 2/WITS 4/RES 2

SPEED 12
INIT +6
DEF 3
HEALTH 7
WP 5

Inspiration: Pretty clearly The Last Unicorn, I think. Not sure what her in-game origin story would be; I imagine I'd make her have amnesia from her time before and during the True Fae.


DARKLINGS
Blessing: Spend Glamour to increase dice pools with Wits, Subterfuge, or Stealth; 9-again on Stealth
Curse: -1 to enact Contracts during the day, -2 in direct sunlight

Concept: Teenage social chameleon that steals crime-scene paraphernalia
Mirrorskin - +3 on Wits + Larceny to disguise self
Probable Court: Autumn

VIRTUE Temperance

SPEED 9
INIT +5
DEF 3
HEALTH 7
WP 4

Inspiration: Mackenzie, the punk teen Werewolf character I made. Works kind of terrifyingly well as a Darkling - was probably a mirror in the house of a chimeric True Fae.


ELEMENTALS
Blessing: Once per day, spend a Glamour to add your Wyrd to your Health rating
Curse: No 10-again on Manipulation, Empathy, Expression, Persuasion, Socialize

Concept: Occult private investigator
Fireheart – Glamour 1-for-1 for Wits

Contract of Fleeting Summer x (Baleful Sense)

SPEED 9
INIT +4
DEF 2
HEALTH 8
WP 5

Inspiration: Harry Dresden. Admittedly a much blastier Harry Dresden. I could see him as having been, say, a torch or something - fire that illuminated the shadows.

Curse: -1 to any Clarity degeneration check

Concept: High-class prostitute with a sideline as a nightclub singer

PHYSICAL Athletics 1, Drive 1, Stealth 2
SOCIAL Empathy 2, Expression 1 (singing), Persuasion 2, Socialize 3 (clubs), Subterfuge 3 (discretion)

MERITS
Striking Looks xxxx
Contacts xx
Mantle (Spring) x

SPEED 9
INIT +4
DEF 2
HEALTH 7
WP 5

Inspiration: Danielle. Oh man, Danielle. I considered making her a Muse, but that would be more an Oruha thing. Her Expression should probably be higher, but I imagine she'd get equipment bonuses. I also don't know what her time with the True Fae would have been like, but probably I'd make it something very dark.


OGRES
Blessing: Spend Glamour to improve Strength, Brawl, and Intimidate.
Curse: No 10-again on Composure, and -1 from Composure when used as a Defense trait.

Concept: Angry firefighter
Stonebones – Use your Wyrd as an armor rating, -1 Dexterity, Defense reduced by 1 per 2 points of Wyrd past the first
Probable Court: Summer

VIRTUE Fortitude
VICE Wrath

INT 2/WITS 2/RES 2
STR 3/DEX 2/STA 3
PRES 3/MAN 1/COM 3

MENTAL Craft 2, Investigation 2, Medicine 1, Science 2 (fire)
PHYSICAL Athletics 3 (running), Brawl 3, Drive 2, Larceny 1, Weaponry 2 (axe)
SOCIAL Intimidation 2, Persuasion 2

MERITS
New Identity xxxx
Strong Back x
Iron Stamina xx

CONTRACTS
Contracts of Eternal Summer x (Son of the Hearth)
Contracts of Stone xxx (Might of the Terrible Brute, Ogre's Rending Grasp, Display Grandiose Might)
Contracts of Hearth x (Fickle Fate)

SPEED 10
INIT +3
DEF 2
HEALTH 8
WP 5

Inspiration: Wilma, another Werewolf character. It was hard to come up with something for the Ogres. I don't like 'em much, probably because I couldn't LARP one convincingly. Anyway, I imagine that during a fire she got grabbed, and everyone assumed she died in that fire; the 'new' Wilma spent some time as a worker inside a forge for her True Fae master, but managed to hack her way back out.


WIZENED
Blessing: 1 point of Glamour to gain 9-again on Dexterity rolls for a scene, or 1 point of Glamour to add your Wyrd to Dodge
Curse: No 10-again on Presence, -2 on untrained Social skills.

Concept: Funeral Director
Chatelaine – 9 again on all social rolls for manners, etiquette, etc.; can also spend Glamour to gain +2 to Manipulation and Presence for the rest of the scene.
Probable Court: Winter

VIRTUE Faith
VICE Lust

INT 3/WITS 3/RES 2
STR 1/DEX 2/STA 3
PRES 2/MAN 2/COM 3

MENTAL Academics 3 (Religion), Craft 1, Occult 2, Politics 2, Science 3
PHYSICAL Athletics 1, Stealth 2, Survival 1
SOCIAL Empathy 1 (grief), Socialize 3 (bereaved), Subterfuge 3

MERITS
Allies x (funerary)
Status xx (funerary)
Status xx (Winter)
Mantle xx (Winter)

CONTRACTS
Contracts of Fleeting Winter xxx (The Dragon Knows, Slipknot Dreams, Faces in the Water)
Contracts of Eternal Winter xx (Jack's Breath, Touch of Winter)

SPEED 8
INIT +5
DEF 2
HEALTH 8
WP 5

Inspiration: Just came to me, really. I got down to the end, said, "I haven't done a Winter yet... hmmm... Chatelaine... funeral director! Bing!" The Vice was hard - I had Gluttony and Lust left - and Katie said, "Maybe he preys on the grieving." Bing! This one is actually my favorite (other than of course Danielle).
