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.
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.
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.
