No doubt many of you have seen the thread at the Secret World forums regarding character ideas. I've posted mine here, but maybe a good way of getting to know each other is for us to post up your initial ideas for your character ingame.
Here's mine. Any thoughts/constructive criticisms/ideas would most welcome
Name: Quentin Matthis
Ethnic Background: Caucasian
Build: Looks like a rugby player
Hair: Short cropped dark blonde hair.
Eye Colour: Blue
Skin Colour: Slight tan
Distinguishing Features: Small scar bisecting left eyebrow, intricate celtic tattoo on right shoulder, small chinese kanji tattoo on left shoulder symbolising chaos/anarchy, small tattoo on inside right forearm of a chinese dragon.
Clothing: Tends to wear tailored dark blue pin stripped suits, with white or pale blue shirt and open collar. Usually wears black ankle boots from Carredeckers in London. Always wears either tailored or bespoke clothing.
For specific purposes Q will wear black turtleneck cotton long sleeve shirts, black tactical trousers, tactical vest (if necessary)
Skills: Q is an expert computer cracker. He has designed and written his own code as well as utitlising various systems. He prides himself that there isn't an online computer in the world he can't access. Having worked for British Intelligence, he has had tradecraft, weapons and tactics training, and is highly intelligent, with a genius level IQ, and a photographic memory.
Weapons and Gear/Equipment: He tends to favour the Sig-Sauer P229 as a handgun, the IMI Tavor TAR-21 Israeli Assault Rifle for greater firepower if needed and the CheyTac Intervention for long distance soft target interdiction. Does not like melee weapons or knives, prefering to rely on his martial arts abilities, primarily a mix of Wing Chun and Tai Chi'Chuan.
Supernatural Abilities: He has only recently discovered that the supernatural exists and is real, and is pursuing knowledge of this with the same intensity that drove him in his hacking days. He has started to become adept at Chaos magic
Interests and Goals: Earlier in his life he was relentless in his quest to make sure no source of information was closed to him. His driving force is a boundless curiosity, and this has lead to his exploring more esoteric and hidden knowledge. He is driven to learn of the world behind our world and to work to maintain the balance. He is also fanatical about his martial arts skills and trains at least 2 hours a day, every day to perfect his technique.
Why Dragon?: Despite having been recruited and worked for SIS, he has always been an anarchist at heart, and he left the service after 15 years to pursue his own goals. He is financially set and wants for nothing, his thirst for knowledge has lead him into a fascination with chinese culture and through this he was first approached, then recruited to serve the Dragon as their goals mirror many of his own.
Background: Q was a child prodigy with computers and software, designing his first virus at 8, arrested at 11 for hacking into his local bank after they sent his mother a nasty letter regarding her overdraft. His talents were spotted early by the British Intelligence services, and he was recruited straight from Imperial College London after he graduated at 18 with a Masters in Software Design and Engineering.
He served in SIS as a hacker and intelligence analyst, occasionally venturing into the field for specific missions. He retired from SIS after a mission went badly wrong and the team he was with were ambushed and killed whilst he was in another location, working on another part of the mission. He barely escaped with his life and he has no wish to work for the government again, after he found out someone on is team had sold them out to the opposition.
He is somewhat paranoid now, in conjunction with being a very high functioning sociopath. He can and does have relationships and friends, but only on a fairly superficial level. He is far more interested in knowledge and information than people, whom he tends to see as either a distraction, a source of new information, or an obstacle to be overcome.
