Character Information

Summary

Leviathan runs to keep himself in comfort, using his physical and magical gifts to neutralize threats and targets and get paid. Since he does not own most of the tools a vampire might use to keep themselves mostly functional during the day and he is otherwise quite durable, he generally prefers to engage in runs almost entirely after dark. While his embrace of dark magic and status as a vampire means he has few qualms about killing, he generally accepts that not all combat needs to be lethal, and is proficient in subduing combat. After all, you need to be alive to have your essence drained.

Leviathan, so-named in reference to the biblical sea monster, is nonetheless capable of subtlety, and well able to move around without being immediately noticed, although his stature and vulnerabilities to sunlight and wood make him much less effective at blending into a social situation.

Goals

Stay fed.

Advance himself.

Evade the law.

Background

Benjamin Moses was born and raised in Everett, overlooking the Sound. His parents were honest, god-fearing dock-workers who had little time for their kid, so the young Benjamin was a 'latchkey kid', absorbing 5th-world media handed down from his grandparents and from the the local pirates. Thanks to the difficulty local authorities had in determining his age by sight, he started working at a young age, loading and unloading on the shady part of the docks. One night, Benjamin saw a woman on a faraway jetty, followed her for no apparent reason to a storage shed, and got drained for everything he had. He woke up the next night a vampire and an adept, the stress of the hunger having awakened him, and quickly set about beating someone to near-death and draining their blood. Rapidly fleeing the scene, Benjamin used his cursory knowledge of the local dives and hideaways to set himself up, dragging unsuspecting dockworkers returning home into empty alleys and killing them afterwards to cover his tracks. Eventually, the heat grew too much for him in his hometown, and he had to look for a way out of the district to somewhere where people were looking for him somewhat less aggressively. He was contacted by Ziz, who in exchange for a few 'favors' (unsubtle assassinations) had him smuggled into Auburn. Adopting the street name Leviathan, Benjamin now takes work as a shadowrunner both to pay back Ziz and maintain his new marginally-less horrible lifestyle.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Vampire (Non-Human) - A rarity even among the infected, Leviathan's HMVV Strain 1 expresses as vampirism.

Mentor Spirit (Shark) - Although his dark magic tradition does not necessarily revere animal spirits in-and-of-themselves, the cultural mark of the shark as an unthinking, unfeeling murder machine as depicted in movies like Jaws, and the use of the term to refer to decisive, unemotional actors makes it a perfect fit for a dark adept.

Catlike - Leviathan, as is usual for a killer of his type, needs to be stealthy to survive.

Illiterate - Leviathan grew up in a working-class family and worked under-the-table at a questionably-legal shipping operation. He, unusually for a troll, can't read.

Compulsive (Combat Monster)- Fighting makes Leviathan feel alive, and his ego rests on his prowess in combat. He finds it difficult as a result to flee from combat.

Wanted - The "Everett/Auburn Exsanguinator" has been the subject of a bit of coverage on the local news, and the city of Seattle has a sizable bounty on it. That's him.

SINs

Leviathan's literally underground lifestyle and lack of financial resources has led to his not owning a SIN at all, neither fake nor real.

Appearance

Clothing

Leviathan dresses like what he is, a proudly amoral hulking vampire. He likes black and dark blue, thick clothing, and chrome accents.

Matrix Persona

As a vampire, Benjamin can't swim, but he enjoys doing it on the matrix. His persona reflects this, a cross between a great-white shark and a towering metahuman.
