I Caught That Bug Again…

Bah. I don’t know why I love using that blasted thing so much.

Anyhow, I decided to make versions of a whole bunch of the characters from the City of Angels, my LA-based Vtm/KoE/stuff crossover troupe-style chronicle. Be afraid. A lot of the characters just didn’t seem to have the right options available, unfortunately. but one does what one can.  Most of the below were player characters at one point or another, but not all. Care to guess which?

*Edit: Added more.

Tyler
Sebastian Tyler (Almost invariable referred to simply as Tyler), scion of House Tremere that just wants to be left alone to continue his thaumaturgical researches and arcane investigations in peace… so of course he never gets a spare moment to actually work on them.


Andy Yang, usually known as Yang. Blind Wu Zao (Asian Salubri). “I am Yang. I will help you.”

Cesar
Cesar Lopez, Toreador photojournalist and coterie chupa.

Yakamo
Takoshima Yakamo, Kanbujian ex-yakuza assassin. Killed by Crypt’s Sons leader Mohammad Al-Muthlim. Twice. Until then, very dangerous indeed.

Lo
Bob Lo, Kanbujian cannibal lawyer… at least The Little Death gets the cops off your tail.


Star Norton, a new age-ey Caitiff that wasn’t ready to play with the big dogs and vanished. Fate unknown but presumed unpleasant.

Mika
Mizuhara Mika, Japanese Brujah anarch idealogue and (what else) martial artist. Trouble got his katana from her dojo after he torched her.


TeeKay, Tremere anarch that really likes chains, telekinesis and subterfuge.

Marcus
Marcus Turnbull, Tyler’s traitorous ghoul. If ever an antagonist got killed to death, it was this guy. Gunned down and dragged back to daddy by a ghoul, chained to a toilet and tortured at length then healed up and Dominated, then lastly bullet-sprayed in the head at point-blank as a trigger for Lo’s suicide-by-cop ruse.


Jem Cohen, homeless ‘nam vet, Trouble’s ghoul and the guy that gunned Marcus down… the first time.

Fade
Fade, Crypt’s Sons lieutenant, recurring nemesis and Lasombra bullyboy. Presumably burned in the destruction of Tyler’s mansion.

Jose
Jose, Gangrel El Hermandad gangster and the only Animalism-based player character I’ve actually seen in a tabletop game. Everybody loves his ghoul rottie (roughly the size of a third world country).

Sphere
Sphere, rapidly-devolving Gangrel surfer chick. And no, she does’t have actual cat-ears… just tufted feral ones.

Chucky
Chucky Vargas, Tzimisce organ-thief and thoroughly evil bastard. Presumably perished along with Fade.

Greg Smith
Greg Smith, Ventrue bodyguard and security expert.

Genji
Genji Mitoshi, Devil-Tiger mistress of Yin Prana (combined with a metal staff), scourge of Little Tokyo. Destroyed in a … messy… battle. Ninjas included! She very nearly recruited Yakamo.


Fun Toy, walking pop-culture explosion and Thrashing Dragon mandarin of the Flatbush & Stockton Posse. He may dress goofy, but he plays a mean game of hardball.

Mister
Mister (as in “That’s MISTER you you, pal!”) Tony Cervantes, Lasombra Antitribu man of respect with a major case of little man’s syndrome. Less than 5′ tall and virtually indestructible (he started with 3 each in Potence and Fortitude!). He preferred bare-knuckle boxing, but kept a bat and a shotgun in the trunk in case things got really ugly. The available Gaia options failed him a bit: no white shirts with rolled-up sleeves and no cigars.


Iwan Triago, Indonesian Kanbujian (later Resplendant Crane) student social activist (read: commie).

Morpheus
Morpheus, Lasombra Crypt’s Son (Fade’s partner) nicknamed due to his resemblance to a certain pop-culture icon. Got his fool head sliced off when it turned out he wasn’t as fast as he thought he was… then used as a projectile against his partner.

DJ Jimi
DJ Jimi, another Crypt’s Son.

Hassan
Hassan Al-Mustafa, Assamite hitter that made a big splash on the local scene until he let an old grudge get the best of him.

Jeremy
Jeremy MacNeil, hardcore anarchist the people tryto call the ‘Prince of Los Angeles’. You gotta love Jeremy. I still wonder why he’s not wearing a shirt on the cover of Nights of Prophecy.

Louis
Louis Fortier, Baron of West LA  and “gentleman among the anarchs.” Plus one of the few anarch leaders that was actually ready for the Jade Invasion when it hit. Monsieur Fortier is a Kindred to be reckoned with.

Steve
Steve Booth, Baron of Long Beach. He’s a totally gnarly surfer dude, man. Sphere’s one of his crew.

Jack!
Smiling Jack, baby! Reading about him taking that (really hardcore but hopelessly overconfident) Kuei-jin martial artist chick apart was an inspiration. 😀

Mandarin Hao
Mandarin Hao Wei-Liang, one of the forces behind the Jade Invasion. Not a Gui Ren to cross, the cold-hearted plotter.

Maximum Sun
Maximum Sun. A very, very nasty Kuei-Jin who richly deserves the ‘unfortunate condition’ under which he labors.


Chiu Bao, First Oni of the Extraordinary Commission For the Rectification of Borders.  Underestimate this South-directed Devil-Tiger Mandarin at your peril.

Jiejie Li
Jiejie Li, Ancestor of the Extraordinary Commission.

Monkey
Monkey Trip Wu… his name says plenty.

still more to come…

    I am digging it. Good to see you throw in Fun Toy. TeeKay made me wonder if there’s any sort of power (or permutation thereof) that would allow a vamp to create attached garments of her own blood (or shadow in the case of a Lasombra perhaps) that can be manipulated. Sure, it reeks of Spawn, but it also smacks beautifully of Akira in a visual sense.

    Fun Toy and Monkey Trip Wu make up the coolest pair of Gui Ren on the planet, bar none.

    As for Teekay… I’m sure there’s a thaumaturgy ritual that could pull that stunt off. I’d have to research it. Or invent it. 😀 I think it’s cool.
