(addendums to those listed in the Malkavian Clanbook)
Note: Many people
read through the clanbooks and skip the pages on character concepts,
I highly urge anyone that's done that to go back and look. The concepts
can be quite inspiring, and can give you a second look into what
concepts would be interesting to play. I offer additional concepts
are the dwarves on strike?...oh right... Little People. Misunderstood,
you say....they have no fricken clue"
were raised as a neo-gypsy, what the world calls carnies have become
a quickly dying breed. As a child, you helped put up the tents,
construct the games, and even played parts for the Carnival's freakshow.
Times became tough, and the family was barely able to eek out an
existance, with the new theme parks and disney wonderlands. One
night a strange man came to the camp and spoke to the family, he
had grande ideas about how the carnival could survive in these new
times. A pact was sealed, the arrangements of which unknown to you
at the time. Afterwards, the carnival had suprising success, traveling
to rural areas, bringing entertainment and enlightenment like a
twisted tent revival. You grew up, and took your place with the
team, managing to outshine and out perform the other contortionists
and trapeze artists, even enjoyed some fame in the small circle
of carnies. The mysterious man returned one night to watch the show,
and requested a private show from you late in the night. Your life
would never be the same.
Concept: A charlatan,
well used to the scams and art forms of the carnie circuit. You
are also a performer and a risk taker. Always pushing your physique
to new limits. The embrace didn't change you much, you were always
the outsider, and even more so now. You were easily able to manipulate
the crew and begin running things for yourself, always looking for
some new trick, some new scam and a new town to take advantage of.
You're a risk taker and a daredevil.
Hints: Animated, you are a performer and all the world is stage.
When you're not swinging on a trapeze or curling into a box no human
could possibly fit into, you're the charmer, the charlatan. Your
dress is always eye catching, something that accentuates and captures
the attention, some may even mistake you for a Ravnos.
