*Carl, choose some of these. Characters are supposed to have three – a combination of short- and long-term, and any kind thereof. Long-term obviously give better Experience rewards, but, conversely, short-term goals are much easier to achieve and may be replaced at the beginning of each Chapter. Also, change your Virtue and Vice to Mask and Dirge from Blood & Smoke. These two represent what you pretend to be and what you truly are deep down, respectively. Ian or I can go over those with you come next session.

Tiris, with her age, should be a veritable vampire lord by now, but her rebellious and overall good-hearted nature led her to a “life” of political activism and what many in the Eyrie would consider to be terrorist acts. She is tall and stark-looking but quite a beauty in her own right. Her skin, like most vampires, is pearlescent and pale, though it is said at one point it had taken on a lifelike peach hue. Her hair is raven and black, and her appearance is unkempt compared to that of her kin. She refuses to wear garments that would suggest any sort of wealth, of which she does actually have a great deal.
Three decades ago – mere child’s play for Tiris – she married a Magus of Sarcophagus Trinity by the name of Radford the Red (oft referred to jokingly by his students at the Academiae as Redford the Rad), an archaeologist and adept practitioner of the magics of Life. Together they served in a joint research team from the Eyrie and the South Viridian which was put in place to promote an atmosphere of cooperation between the two respective governments. The assembly fell to pieces within a month (see the Massacre at Point Flight), but the bond that grew between Tiris and Radford resulted in their holy vows. They fled to the protection of Fulcrum Trinity in the West Viridian and continued their studies there – but on an entirely different subject matter. Sola Tiris had made the decision to try and reverse the effects of her undeath so that she could grow old with her husband and forever evade the vampirism that plagued her relations with the Magi around her. In doing so, however, they accidentally stumbled across a serum that unwittingly resulted in Tiris’s pregnancy.
She gave birth to a baby girl three-and-a-half months later. The child would have died, quite obviously, were it not for its half-vampirism.
Word spread through the ranks of Fulcrum Trinity that a child had been born somewhere between the states of life and undeath and of course this rumor did not go unheard by the vampire coteries. The Vampire King Othmar received wind of this unprecedented occurrence and personally traveled to the West Viridian himself to acquire the child. In the middle of the night he murdered Radford by tearing out the man’s heart and devoured it in front of both Tiris and her wailing daughter. Taking the child into his arms, he forced Tiris to swear to him a blood oath which she must not break lest her child suffer her Prince’s unyielding wrath. She has served Othmar and done his bidding ever since, and has not seen her child in years.
Now since it’s Carl’s character she’s probably a lesbian or something.
