This journal will begin in the current chapter of the campaign, meaning people and events from the past may be referenced. If I fail to explain anything, please feel free to ask for details! Keep in mind that often several game sessions will occur in the same night IN GAME, so there may be multiple entries per one night of game time. Just pay attention to the dates that I enter on the post, not the dates the blog automatically assigns!
Many of the characters are detailed in the World of Darkness Chicago book. The characters listed below are player characters, and storyteller created NPC's
Gregori "Ori" IronFeather
Werewolf, Bone Shadow, Cahalith
Ori is the most recent addition to the group. Son of a native American Father and Russian mother, Ori is cousin to Stepping Feather, and was sent to Chicago by a vision of his now dead cousin. When he arrived, he was hunting Giuseppe's ghost and came across the actual Giuseppe, who proceeded to beat the shit out of him and threatened to kill his family if Ori didn't help the group. He helped save the group from Pain of Animals in the Meat Packing District, and now he hangs out and helps out, even though Giuseppe has since admitted that he has no intention of harming Ori's family. He was recently offered a place in the Santore pack by Vitorio himself, after the battle with Citysmith, and is the first non-Italian member of the family/pack. Age: 23
Mage: Mastigos, Space and Mind
Theo is former Special Forces and joined up with the original group in Mexico before the temple fiasco. He disappeared for awhile and awakened, and shortly after that was drafted into Project Valkyrie as an agent. He reappeared suddenly to aid Harper as a PV point of contact for her while the group was trying to obtain the scarabs to battle ophios. He is only around occasionally, as PV constantly has him on assignment (which is code for 'his player lives in another state and only visits occasionally.'). He pops in from time to time to help the group, usually as a PV liaison, but sometimes for his own personal reasons. He works for Project Valkyrie as long as it serves his agenda. He also has a potentially fatal fascination with The Unholy.
Mage: Moros. Karl was another member of the original group. The oldest player character, he is a shrimp boat captain in his 40s. He sometimes embodies Baron Samedi, and is a sexist fucker and alcoholic. His dog, Danzig, is a large rottweiler who is much more powerful and intelligant than a normal dog has any right to be. Karl is with Tommy in the New Orleans/Mexico side of the chronicle.
Kindred: Gangrel, Brujah bloodline. Unaligned. Jaleel was another member of the original group. He was at one point a Crip in New Orleans, and is now a Brujah.He has problems controlling the beast, often getting carried away and murdering innocent people he. But he's working on it. He is with Tommy and Karl in the New Orleans/Mexico side of the chronicle. Age: 24
Tommy's new packmate. The Chicago group has never met Nick, and knows only that he is Uratha and has joined the New Orleans/Mexico group in their travels. Age: ?
Mehket(hollow)/Khaibit/Dragon/Harper's Sire. Giuseppe is the main NPC in the game. He is an ingenious schemer. He was s ghoul for several decades before becoming embraced while the group was in Mexico by person unknown. Several of the members of the old group hate him because of his perceived betrayal on the temple top in Mexico when he sliced everyone up and forcibly embraced Harper. She got over it. He is also Giovanni's great uncle, but he was excommunicated from the family a very long time ago for reasons no one will talk about. Giuseppe's name is never mentioned except by a very select few Santori's, and always in private. Apparent age: 21, Age: 70s
Mehket(hollow)/Unaligned/Giuseppe's other half and other childe. Mona was a ghoul and detective on the New Orleans police force for several years before being embraced by Giuseppe just before the fight with Ophios. She and Giuseppe have been together since before they became ghouls. She and Giuseppe became Harper's adoptive, disturbed, and dysfunctional family after Giuseppe embraced Harper. Mona is a badass who will beat you silly given half an excuse. Apparent age: Mid 30s Actual Age: 80s
Previous owner of Giovanni's shop. Member of the Cult of the Phoenix. Discovered to have Set bound to him during the fight with Ophios. Died when the group used the Celestial Flange to unbind Set in order to avoid Chicago being turned into a wasteland by ancient Egyptian gods fighting. Left Gio his shop and everything in it when he died. Other names: Seth, youngest of three brothers. You get to guess what his two brother's names were.
Promethean/Osiran/Khaibit servant. The old group were responsible for returning his heart to him in Mexico, he helped the group accomplish its mission on the temple in Mexico, then showed up again later in Chicago and gave aid for the encounter with Ophios.
Can refer to either the Galateid Promethean or any of the 13 girls named Natalie murdered to create her. One Natalie murder and her ghost was the original event that brought the original group together in New Orleans
Member of the Hunter group Aegis Kai Doru, Friend of werewolves, Giuseppe and Drake had many violent encounters through the years. Drake was murdered outside of a Jazz club by person unknown
Michael Denzelo and Captain O'Donnell
Hunters- Project Valkyrie. A Contact of Harper's, tried to assassinate Harper and Giuseppe before battle with Ophios. Partner was killed and he was captured, but instead of torturing him for information, Harper convinced him she wasn't a monster like the kindred that murdered his family and let him go. Afterwards, his superiors decided to use Harper as a point of contact to keep tabs on her group. Denzelo was targeted by the serial killer who nearly caused him to kill himself. Rescued by a phone call from Harper to Captain O'Donnell who has become her new point of contact within Valkyrie as Denzelo is now on suicide watch.
Dr. Jack Bright
(I usually will not list characters here if they were first encountered in a journal entry, but I felt it necessary to give the inspiration for the character)
Research Scientist- SCP Foundation
Dr. Jack Bright is an occasional character who's main objective seems to be securing supernatural objects and taking them into the custody of the mysteriousness "Foundation". Similar to the Aegis Kai Doru, only younger, better funded, and more research and development based, The Foundation and Dr. Jack Bright are derived from the organization and character created on this website: http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/dr-bright-s-personnel-file
It should be noted that the Bright in our game may not conform exactly to the character on that site.
