Concept

Retired Sioux mercenary Crow (Raven) Adept, who had turned his back on violence and watched over a monastery for a few years until his violent past caught up to him and sent him back into the shadows, plotting revenge.

Hooks

Things that could be useful for a GM to know to further tailor the run for your character, or would make you entertaining to take on a run. Could be stuff like

  • Crow tries to get him out of his hard shell
  • Hates Azzies(see Vendetta)
  • Member of the Hotspot Crew
  • Mom still pays him allowance money

  • Mentor: Raven (Alt)
  • Double Jointed
  • School of Hard Knocks
  • SINner (Sioux Nation)
  • The Angry Man Kit: Combat Monster, Did You Call Me Dumb?
  • Favored towards Amerindians, Buddhists, Hinduists, Daoists; Prejudiced against people from the CAS or Aztlan

Backstory

This is very WIP but John Redcrow is the son of an Ares PT hiding in Sioux Nation and a Crow tribe land owner, who offered the dad a new identity as a native and safety in exchange for... marriage. This is a rather extreme version of Crow's usual exchange of wisdom and goods: give and take of life, in addition to being sociable and uplifting. So John grew up with both Christian and Siouan religious influence, and with his mother being ex-runner and his dad basically a supersoldier, he figured he'd go join a mercenary outfit. The Sioux Defense Force didn't like his total lack of restraint. Crow took him in almost immediately, too, but he wasn't nearly as socially skilled as his older siblings, so merc work was almost sanctuary for him. While killing coyotes here and helping choice CAS locales there ((this is where he met Garo)), John meets Ismael Gallardo, a 2-essence-burnt Mystic Adept, and leader of the Aztlan mercenary group Nexocoyomeh (Nahuatl for Coyote). Ismael is a very arrogant man who thinks he is above everyone else, and so when the two faced off in battle, he tricked Redcrow with illusion magic and left him to deal with it for many hours while dealing with something else, namely most of the Siouan mercenary group that was with Redcrow. Enraged, he followed Gallardo to Henan, one of China's microstates, leaving a bloody scar in his wake while trying to find the man who had killed so many of his brothers in battle. Crow wasn't a fan, but there wasn't much that could stop Redcrow in this state. Naturally he got beaten again, this time more severely, and took many months to be healed by the local Daoist monks. The experience was enlightening for the adept, and so he decided to become a monk and help the war orphans, criminals and veterans locally. This lasted for a few years, at least until, almost out of pettiness but more probably as part of a sinister iniatory quest, Gallardo decided to blow up the monastery, thinking it would have killed the now peaceful Redcrow. Well, no longer peaceful, Redcrow took a ticket straight to Seattle, the heart of the shadows, and is now gearing up for a final showdown with this man who had destroyed so much he loved.
