From Maelstrom
Maria's Revenge Description: Every time you fall asleep, you risk a form of sleep paralysis – you cannot move, can barely breathe, & cannot quite open your eyes – you then feel the cold flesh of Maria Villalobos-Cunningham crawl on top of you, straddling your chest. If you don't wake up in time, you will hear the “click” of a hammer pulled back, & feel the barrel of the dueling pistol pressed over your heart... System: Anytime you sleep on Contract or Sidegame, roll 1d10 – on a “1” you will need to roll Body (DC: 8). A success sees you waking up just in time – you suffer 1 Mind damage & will not be able to sleep for the next 12 hours. If you fail, you suffer a Severity 4 Injury in the form of a Sudden Heart Attack, & cannot sleep as above. On a Botch, add the number of “1s” rolled to the Severity of the Heart Attack injury.
Wood, Blood and Bone Recessed into the scarred flesh of his throat, is the dark and twisted coffin wood, chiseled with depictions of a wrapping snake under his skin, adorned with yellow bone seemingly growing from it. Alister Accessibility Augment replacing the wheezing battle scar.

David Vance lost his son Bobby in a tragic car accident 3 years ago, when Bobby was 16. Just learning how to drive, Bobby ran a red light and was struck by a speeding Pickup truck. Both Bobby and the truck’s driver were killed in the collision. In the 3 years since, David has continued his work as a life insurance agent while desperately researching into the occult, searching for a miraculous way to bring his son back to life. His desperate research led his wife, Melanie, to divorce him (he was spending too much time obsessing over the occult and mourning than on being a husband to her). They have since become bitter exes. David has recently moved to LA, and taken on a new job.
