3.1.11   A FINAL WORD

At this point you’ve finish the statistical portion of character generation. What you have, though, is not a fully fleshed-out character. Without adding some details and motivations, all you really have is a sheet full of useless numbers. In order to breathe life into your new character and make him fun to play, the author recommends the following.

  1. Write up a description of your character. Describe what the character looks like in divine form, and what mannerisms he possess. Talk about the character’s motivations and his view on the major aspects of the game (demons, children of clay, Grigori, sorcery, Nephilim, technology, etc.)

  2. Describe some of the most important events during the angel’s existence and how they shaped his views. Attempting to write a complete history for a creature that has lived since the beginning of time is a bit silly, so don’t even try. Merely pick out the most defining moments. Remember, this should help you more fully understand your character, not weigh you down with countless details.

  3. Answer some questions the numbers on your character sheet might allude to. For instance, if one of your aspects is much higher than the rest, explain why. Why does the character have the temptations he does? Why does he have a specific signature. These questions will help you get a better grasp of what would otherwise be an uninteresting character.
