As part of my attempt to grok PnP, I went ahead and started working on writing up some selections from my long-standing list of characters.
My first two submissions have actually been published for another game. Since they're my creation, and neither the original submissions or these involved any financial remuneration, I figure it's safe to use them.
The first out of the gate is Alley Cat, a character that came from a long-running online campaign. The hardest part was cramming her considerable back-story into a short blurb.
Things like the fact that her batons were a gift from her mentor, that the mysterious incident in her life involved an old nemesis of his, or that she temporarily changed her name to Payback when her mother was brutally killed. ("Payback is a b**ch... and she's coming for you.")
And it just occurred to me I forgot to add in her origin that she's still a teenager. Oh well...
