Background

One of the first vampires to be turned after the Awakening was the firstborn of a media conglomerate's vice president. Born with a silver spoon in her mouth and used to luxury, the usual route to the penthouse wasn't available when all hell broke loose. Trying to find an alternate route, she took one wrong turn and ended up in the deepest, darkest reaches of her psyche to escape what a bunch of psychotic street-dwelling trash were to put her through. The chaos that ensued that year and the absolute turmoil society suffered from left an infected, hospital-ridden corporate woman in a ward and out of the media's sights. Quietly disowned and swept under the rug, her existence wasn't something her father wanted to ever think about again.


Decades have passed in the Sixth World and she's gone through a lot in her quest to build herself up from nothing, at her worst ripping the throats of homeless innocents and at her best falling back into her old vices of luxury. Emotional trauma from her past has healed, yet it's also given her new purpose. Finding every last person involved, dead or alive, and desecrating their very existence has become her driving purpose, her raison d'etre. To climb from nothing back to the top and to avenge hours of suffering are both ways for her to stomp on the very concept of street scum that once dared to lay their hands on her. She's found two so far, but thirteen more remain. She doesn't care if she ends up in front of an apartment or a grave. Either way, something will burn.


This quest of hers was what spurred her on to run the shadows without hesitation. She's often offered the most dangerous jobs because she rarely refuses them. They're the risky runs that people don't usually come back from. Still, time and time again she's survived ambushes and complete slaughters, returning as the sole survivor either through acting chops as a corpse or leaving her team to die when it was obvious they were set up. She's surrounded by death and the only one that it doesn't seem to stick to is herself. For this reason, she's found her new alias. Before, she's used Jane Doe or Blondie as nicknames in place of her birthname, which she no longer tells anyone. Instead, thinking back to her college courses, one thing sticks out to her, a lone figure bringing the dead to the afterlife.


Charon.

Narrative Significant Qualities

Vampire - The obvious part that she doesn't attempt to hide from anyone she ends up working with. All that matters to her (and should matter to her allies) is that she'll drink enemies, not allies.

Distinctive Style - Whether it's her uniform, bearing distant resemblance to the 20th century's military or her more casual, exposing outfits, Charon's not too hard to spot by her looks. Her handcannon's pretty distinct-looking, too. Not your usual self-defense item.

Impassive 1000-Yard Stare - Nearly fifty years of bloodshed have made her care little about life and death. It's not easy to feel empathetic toward someone that stares at you like a piece of meat.

Wanted - You don't think people would ignore someone like Charon, do you? There's a price on her head and it's a two-way street: both Regency MegaMedia and Horizon have her head associated with a hefty reward.

Media Mentions

In 2012, there was a news article about her death, but it's hard to find nowadays. Most of it was in physical newspapers 'Deceased' sections, since the Internet was efficiently scrubbed of most mentions of her.
