    Conditions

    From Assets and Liabilities
    Jack of All Trades You are naturally capable of most things, even without any training. When making a roll which utilizes a Primary Ability that you don’t possess, you do not suffer the standard +1 Difficulty penalty, and you receive +1 dice to the roll.
    Ugly A hideous disfigurement makes your appearance disturbing and memorable. Any rolls that involve physical appearance in some way are at +2 difficulty. Social interactions should be roleplayed with this Condition in mind.
    The Hunger: Corpse Flesh You have an insatiable urge to consume something unusual. You no longer recover Mind through restful sleep. Instead, you may recover 1 point of Mind per day by consuming the subject of your hunger. Any day you fail to do so, you take a point of Mind damage.
    Tough You can function under intense pain. Dice penalties from pain are reduced by 2. This includes Body penalty.
    Pack Beast You're built to carry and haul. You can carry 25 pounds per point of Brawn without being encumbered instead of the usual 15.
    Unshakable You're hardly human anymore, and actions that once troubled you hardly seem to matter at all anymore. You are at -2 Difficulty to all Trauma rolls. You receive this automatically upon reaching Veteran status (25 victories), and cannot take it prior to that.
    Immutable Body Your body is naturally resistant to being reshaped or permanently damaged. You may Exert your Mind to negate any effect that would transform your body against your will (including the Warp Form Effect). All Battle Scars you would receive are one level less severe.
    Cat-Eyes Your eyes catch the light in the dark like a cat or dog's, granting low-light vision. You suffer no penalty to rolls in low-light situations. You cannot see in pitch blackness.
    Jaded You are difficult to disturb, perhaps because of a traumatic past, or perhaps you're just emotionally detached. You only have two Limits, instead of the normal three.
    From Xenos
    Mythos Ghoul Having performed the Fête de la Tombe, Edgar has fully become a Ghoul Edgar is considered a "Ghoul" for any effect that targets such, & can speak the Ghoul language of meeps & gibberish fluently
    From Maelstrom
    The Worm Turns Suspended Injure: Body Snatched 7 successes (15 damage)
    Grace of the Moonlight Ishtar has blessed you with a slightly longer life. The wound glows with moonlight as it rapidly heals. The next time you use Will to Survive to reduce an incoming Injury up to 4 Severity, you can now reduce it up to 7 Severity.
    Blessing of War Ishtar deems you a worthy warrior. You now have wicked bone spurs on your forearms, calves, and spine. Whenever you receive Brawl damage, the aggressor is also harmed--damage is mirrored up to a 3 Severity Injury (Armor applies). When grappled, the sharp spurs shred Armor by 1 every Round.

    Biography

    Edgar Stokes is a Sanitation Engineer (read: garbage man) who has lived his entire life in & around the glorious city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A short, stocky man of mixed English & Polish descent, Edgar has always been haunted by two critical issues:

    1) His stature, making him a target of Bullies growing up

    2) The fact that girls didn't like him

    The first he resolved in brutal fashion, pummeling the bigger kids with wild abandon. In later years this would escalate to bar brawls & rough street fights. While not always on top, no one walked away from a fight with Edgar Stokes unmarked. The second proved more confounding...he wasn't bad looking...was he? He had a quick sense of humor, girls laughed...but that's it. First base? Once. Second & beyond? Not a chance.

    Edgar had a good job (Union Job, in fact, never mind the details). He bought a fancy motorcycle (Vincent Black Shadow, & the goddamn thing is more a bitch than any girlfriend he's likely to have)...goes to Biker rallies in his off time...why can't he get chicks?

    That question gnawed at him, ate him up inside. Years went by, the same problem remained. Women thought he was funny, sure. Didn't seem to think he was at all bad looking. But then they shied away, almost repulsed. For the life of him, he couldn't figure it out. His useless friends were no help. Edgar threw himself into the things he knew: Fighting, Drinking, Riding, & taking out the trash.

    Until one day, clearing out a rat filled alley downtown, he lifted a dumpster lid to find a dead girl in the back. Pretty, half-clothed, not long dead...need to call the cops! But a dark part of him said, "You need to call the cops...later." Victimless crime, right?

    He didn't quite follow through...lost his nerve, came to his senses. But he did take a taste.

    That is when all his troubles began...
