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. Over time, she tracked down two, found three had died from old age and brutally slaughtered two more, but seven 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.

Significant Things for Narrative

Vampirism - 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.

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 SpinGlobal have her head associated with a hefty reward.

Vain - While not a negative quality mechanically, Charon's in love with luxury. She maintains a high quality lifestyle in Yarrow Point, Bellevue complete with illegal zombie manservants and even drives her very own retrofitted Lamborghini around. It's a classic 2000s model with modern engines and suspension, but don't let that fool you; it's an expensive status symbol that she'll flaunt in anyone's face if she can. In addition, she refuses to wear restrictive, tactical armor for any reason, preferring to remain fashionable at every opportunity. Go figure, vampires are proud to a fault. Who could've seen that coming?

Kill List - This isn't listed in her negative qualities, but
