Character Name: Tadeo Baxter
Character Race: Vamp (Malkavian)
Affiliation(s) or Faction(s): Unaffiliated (For now)
Usual Hangouts: Goth or Punk Bars, otherwise just roaming about randomly.


231





Character Overview:
Tadeo is a singer, a rebel and a lover: He's a vocalist of a batrock/Gothic Punk band and absolutely loves the scene, he lives it. His fashion sense and personality is eccentric leather 80s. He's not hard to become friends with, but he's also not hard to be put on the foe list, it really comes down to how antiquated or just -boring- one is in his eyes. His life is a party and he doesn't want anyone who may possibly bring it down. Of a rabid sexual nature, even if he might not physically act on it he is very prone to hitting on anyone, be it female or male, he is not picky. Wild, that's all you'll get from him.
Due to his Clan's bane you might also find his emotions to shift randomly, albeit he works hard on controlling that aspect of his personality.



Relationships:
Tadeo's current main relationships are very hard to pinpoint as to their true nature. A lover is possibly a curse, an enemy is maybe a blessing. Nothing seems simple at the moment. Only people you can pin down as entirely friends for now are the people in the Gothic and Punk scene and his band mates.

Anna Fountaine (Currently NPC) - Tadeo's mother and Sire. Anna was a flower power hippie in the 60s and 70s and shortly after giving birth to Tadeo ran away from her obligations as mother and escaped to the U.S where along the way she was embraced into Clan Malkavian. Tadeo arriving in N.Y for his studies unlocked something inside Anna, the voices within her guided her straight to her abandoned child, now a man, and embraced him, only to abandon him again right after. Anna watches from afar and controls her son's life without his knowledge, even going as far as Siring another vampire, Liliana, due to her personality, tastes and occupation, finding her a suitable match for her son. Anna is regarded as a lunatic by most Kindred and many would have her dead due to how dangerous she is to the Masquerade.

Liliana "Lilith" Hayden - Embraced by the same Sire (Tadeo's mother), something supernatural seems to draw them to each other, causing the duo to arrive in New Babylon at similar times. There is an obsession and deep trust between these two otherwise strangers, like they've known each other all of their lives. Perhaps the danger is why exactly this connection exists between the two Malkavians, could it be nothing but a curse hidden with sweet words?

Potential Thread Ideas:

- First and foremost, Tadeo is a new arrival, he knows nothing about New Babylon, his whole life was spent between London and New York. He needs guides, he needs people to explain to him the politics of the city and the many factions. Maybe he'll even be swayed into joining one. He isn't exactly "down low", he is pretty obviously a new arrival, bringing his band with him it's easy to find them in underground clubs.

- Tadeo avoids interacting with other Malkavians, Liliana being the exception. He finds the clan to be full of absolute lunatics incapable of having a decent conversation. Almost like he fails to realize his own issues. Interactions with other Malkavians could maybe help in the road for self-betterment and bringing down his unwavering pride.

- New city, Tadeo will only have funds until he doesn't. His band plays a type of music that is not generally considered mainstream and never was to begin with. He relied solely on the Gothic and Punk scene in New York and Toreador or Ventrue fans who were willing to be his patrons, especially the Toreador. If your char is a fan of the type of music and has the means, help him out and he'll most likely be whatever you need him to be.

Lovely, he seems like a fun and interesting character and I am excited to see him in action!

As for my girls, do currently have two Malks myself. One is batshit and manipulative, who revels in her madness. Believing its a gift and not something to be ashamed of (Natania), and the other one is a hippie and even is in the top of the faction of the hippie vamps in Concordia (Jessica). I see you write that he doesn't interact with other Malks but if you feel like making a change those can be possible for threads.

The last vamp I have is Valerie. She is a new born, like, months old only. She is Marcus Valerians bride(The head honcho of vamps). Valerie is a sweetie, blind and in a weird place in her life, with being new born and addapting to her new life and status. But she is polite and friendly to everyone, and highly loyal to her husband. So she will be probably easy to have a thread with, and can act as somewhat a guide into the politics of New Babylon.

I also have a human. She is an hunter on the outside. But really plotting to ruin the hunters and become a vampire herself. Mostly, she is on a selfdestructive mission since she can never achive her lifes goal of ruining the Brotherhood of Orion(the hunters).

Let me know if any of my girls sounds interesting. You can contact me here or on Discord, I am Princess Green Fairy at the moment, or Ane as I prefer to be called since its my name ^^

It is interesting that your character is a singer because Elena is a performer, so in a way - they share love/passion for music. They probably won't like the same kind of music but that doesn't really matter... since it's a universal language, n'est pas? The reason I post for Elena here is more or less that she would identify with Tadeo as much as she previously thought to identify with Ben - she is a Fledgling herself, and being such a young vampire, she hasn't shed all of her mortal coil just yet, so to speak. She is looking for younger Kindred to befriend, to make the long story short.

Would you care for a facelift? A butt job? My parlor is always open and, as you might have heard, the Tzimisce are second to none when it comes to fine hospitality...

Come to the Dark side. The Circle has blood-infused cookies... Actually, to be quite serious, I don't know why you are even considering these Erebos pansies; the Maledictus blood mages can open your eyes to so much more. An invitation stands open - all you have to do - is walk through the door...

My stepchild Elena is right. Music is not just the food of love but of life, and frankly - if you're looking for a place to hang or to stay, come by the Crimson Lights. I run the place and feel it is rather open to all of eclectic tastes. Although it may not appeal to someone strictly of a goth taste, it is still an Elysium to all who seek a safe harbor from whatever it is that may haunt them. Need a job? Well, to be honest, we are always on the lookout for fresh talent. Even if you don't care for the Burlesque scene, we could still work you in to do your thing!

Here's my card:



Feel free to ignore the address in Chicago - these cards are old but the phone number still stands. I hope to hear from you soon. Adieu!

I don't think he'd mind expanding his horizons when it comes to hangouts, quite frankly his "scene" isn't that far from the general burlesque archetype, if anything it's a street level version of it in a twisted way. I'd be more than interested in having him visit such a place and maybe make some ties to it. I would however prefer you'd be the one to start a thread then given it'd be much easier for me to have you set up the setting and general mood since I don't know the place as well as you would.

Come to the Dark side. The Circle has blood-infused cookies... Actually, to be quite serious, I don't know why you are even considering these Erebos pansies; the Maledictus blood mages can open your eyes to so much more. An invitation stands open - all you have to do - is walk through the door...

Sure, as soon as someone actually tells him what the Maledictus or the Erebos are all about, I would prefer to hear out from all sides IC and make a decision based on that. So if you have any ideas, I'm open.

Would you care for a facelift? A butt job? My parlor is always open and, as you might have heard, the Tzimisce are second to none when it comes to fine hospitality...

He's perfect as he is, or at least he thinks he is, maybe you can find better clientele elsewhere haha.

I would LOVE to make contact with other artists in the music industry, I feel like there is an extreme ease of connection there. Maybe since she's tied to Bellefleur we could kill two birds with one stone and have the three meet up at said club?

To be honest, most of those characters work for me as far as first interactions go. Valerie might have more knowledge on the city which he's in desperate need of but interacting with other Malkavians is obviously a personal interest of mine OOCly, not so much his ICly, but I think it'd help him grow as a character. Given most of your archetypes work I feel like it's up to you and what you feel like roleplaying at the moment.

For me, it's a tie between Valerie and Jessica. So if you wanna start with meeting Valerie since she can probably give him somewhat of an introduction to the politics of Erebos that is alright by me. I am one of those that always feel like writing all of my girls. So its never a problem for me to write any of them. I do see that Elena posted in your open thread, and she is even a better one to give Tadeo his introduction to the politics. But it is never a bad thing to know the little queen :p

It would be interesting to see Jessica get involved. Since we've not had any formal Concordia members in play, this would be the first official appearance by a Concordia member in RP. :cool:

P.S.
There is also that Keres chick, as I recall... but she may want to skin Tadeo and wear him as a hat. :ROFLMAO:

The Keres chick would try to wear everyone she meets on board as a hat. Except maaaaaybe the Orion members. But they kind of wanna skin her and make military boots. Hence why she is still not played with xD Desperately waiting for more Keres :cry:

But yes. Jessica could definitely be interesting to see with Tadeo and get Concordia in the official ranks 8D
