OOC: Cast of Characters

The headline in the newspaper reads 'Huge Hounds Haunt Hockomock'. The police have closed the case as only being coyotes and a crazy farmer. But you know better when it comes to stories that don't seem quite right. Where do these black hounds come from, what do they want (besides their nightly chicken dinner)? And how do you stop them?

Player: HeplessBystander
Name: Tobias Jerkins
Age: 19
Sex: Male
Occupation: Student
University of study: Miskatonic University
Residence: Arkham, MA
Birthplace: Australia

Personal Description:
Image
Tobia Jerkins was the first born child of the Jerkins family, burdened with expectations and pressure to be the model upstanding young male of the 1920s, he moved to the land of hopes and dreams in order to search for his passion: America. He was a tall man who loomed over most other people in a room and have fashionably attractive black hair. Enjoys reading and happy conversations with others, he had quickly became one of the brightest freshman students in the Miskatonic University.

Backstory:
Tobias is an atheist who does not believe God, but in scientific progress. He is believes in practical approaches to problem-solving and compartmentalising his problems to be solved efficiently and individually. He is the estranged brother of Anna Jerkins, and never attempted to open communications with her or the Jerkins family since leaving for America.

His parents' house is a place of meaningful memories and where he experienced a stressful childhood filled with hours and hours of gruelling study, labour work, and taking care of his younger sister. He treasures the old family photo from his youth and placed it in his wallet to be taken with him wherever he goes. He owns a car that he bought through his own work and effort.

Famous-1920’s-Fashion-Designers.jpg


Maria Adams
Fashion Designer
26
Birthplace: Bridgewater, Massachusetts

Maria is the eldest daughter of her family. Her real name is Adamovic, but she uses Adams as so to appear more ‘American’. After graduating college she moved to New York to further her dreams of becoming a clothing designer, and so far things are going well. She is employed by one of the better New York fashion houses and is after a few years of apprenticeship she is beginning to see her own designs for formal evening war become produced. Next on the cards will be marriage, she hopes.

She has returned to Bridgewater to visit her family. When she was a child, she and her friends would venture into the Hockomock Swamp on dares, and one day she felt she saw something, something which she can’t explain but which has stayed with her since. As a result, she is interested in anything relating to the Bridgewater Triangle, although if you ask her she will deny it in embarrassment.

She is average size, very pretty although a little shy, which might hold her back. She is also open-minded and willing to believe that there is more to life than is always apparent.

Eddie Donovan

Postby Mr. Handy » Mon Aug 28, 2017 4:48 am

Here's my updated character sheet. I had to make a minor alteration to his background, as I found out that the strikers in the 1919 Boston Police Strike were all replaced, so Eddie kept working during the strike and kept his job.

Name: Eddie Donovan
Age: 33
Sex: Male
Occupation: Police Officer
Current Residence: Boston, Massachusetts

Image

Characteristics:
STR: 75
CON: 50
SIZ: 55
DEX: 80
APP: 40
INT: 60
POW: 60
EDU: 60
Luck: 60

Sanity: 43
Phobias/Mental Disorders: None
Maximum Sanity: 94
Hit Points: 10
Magic Points: 12
Damage Bonus: +1D4
Build: +1
Move: 9

Appearance & Personality: Eddie Donovan is an Irish-American officer in the Boston Police Department. Standing only 5 feet 5 inches tall, he is nonetheless a powerhouse packed into a small frame. Eddie is dedicated to his work and values his integrity, refusing to take bribes when a number of other officers are on the take. He joined the police force both because his family have been cops since the 1860s and because he desires to protect those who cannot protect themselves due to his chivalrous nature.

Background: Eddie joined the police right out of high school, and he has stayed on the force ever since except for when he went to France to fight in the Great War in 1917-8. He felt bad about sitting on the sidelines during the Boston police strike in 1919, knowing that criminals were running rampant and innocents were in danger, so he crossed the picket line.
