Pongo su trasfondo, cuando digo horror me refiero a horror personal, este personaje me ha parecido miserable y desgraciado como pocos, no me refiero a un monstruo, de los cuales hay a cientos en Vampiro. Para entenderlo, quizás convenga saber que Baby chorus es una banda de música de la Camarilla y Jason "Son" Newberry es el Primogénito Malkavian, un auténtico psicópata.


"PORCELAINE" Patricia Montgomery

MORTAL DAYS: THRILL SEEKER

Patricia was the youngest child of a wealthy family from Denver. Her parents made sure that Patricia and her brother, Morgan, fell in love with the great outdoors, regularly taking them out to their holiday home near the Rockies, where they would engage in pursuits from horse rides to rock climbing.

As she grew older, with the trust fund afforded by the family business behind her, Patricia dedicated herself to the enjoyment of life. She eschewed further education and concentrated on scaling her own personal mountains, real or metaphorical. She targeted being the first female to scale all the great peaks of the world and became something of an internet personality in her attempts to do so. This brought her attention and niche fame as a fitness guru and socialite, with energy drink and health supplement companies lining up to gain her endorsement on social media.

While she traveled the world, met and slept with interesting and beautiful people, and performed stunts in exotic locales, her brother managed the family business into the financial crisis. His risky investments had funded Patricia’s lifestyle and his parents’ retirements. When those investments came home to roost, Patricia’s fledgling career could have saved the company from bankruptcy. However, Morgan refused to ask for her help. By the time Patricia discovered the full extent of the problem, her brother faced several charges of insider trading and a string of angry creditors who wanted blood. He answered those charges with the blare of a pistol into his own mouth.

Patricia returned to Denver to mourn her brother only to find her parents embittered at how she had seemingly abandoned him, too ignorant to notice what was going on in the “real world.” After a major falling-out at the funeral, they never spoke again.

Afterwards, Patricia threw herself into dangerous activities. She garnered ever more followers who saw her as an inspiration, while others called her a fraud, nothing more than a rich girl who always had everything handed to her, who made more money selling products than the people that produced them.

Her descent into depression, as well as her torn state between the life she forged and what she saw as the responsibility of home, caught the attention of her sire. As she enjoyed an exclusive concert by the band Baby Chorus in an underground club in Chicago, she threw herself upon their suave bass player and became his childe.

KINDRED NIGHTS: EMPTY ETERNITY

Patricia had many problems to overcome as a Kindred. Her sire, Raymond Falcon, disappeared almost as soon as he had Embraced her. Whenever he reappeared, he seemed different, like he didn’t remember her or the night they shared.

Her tutelage was left to the Primogen of Clan Malkavian, and he was only too happy to have a new plaything to break. He had her perform one final stunt for her followers to enjoy, hanging herself in a hotel room on live stream.

After Son recovered her from the morgue, he introduced her to two things. First, the many comments mocking her death. “Another dead rich bitch” could have been the carving on her headstone.

Second, Patricia’s face was far too famous to be seen roaming around the city. She’d have to travel incognito, and he had just the way to do it. A Porcelain Noh mask was surgically stapled to her head, etched with a beatific smile. Son stated that were she ever to take it off, she would be burned as a Masquerade breach.

“Don’t worry.” he mused, “Now you always look happy, no matter what!”

The Kindred at court were no kinder than internet trolls when Patricia was introduced at Elysium. “Porcelain Pat” they called her. Patricia’s eyes swiveled around the room, her anguish stifled by the saintly smile of the mask. Everyone laughed, all but one.

The rabbi approached her, seeming genuinely interested in her and the losses she had suffered. Even in her depression, she found him sitting silently by her, a reassuring presence. He whispered to her and spoke of salvation that she could find if she would let go of her pain.

After a year of listening to his sermons, the rabbi felt she was ready. He offered her a place in the Cult of Shalim and an answer to her cries for deliverance from the suffering of her life.

Patricia wanted to believe him, but the idea that everything she had seen meant nothing proved too much for her. She had dreamed of climbing all the great peaks. Maybe she couldn’t do that now, but could she accept that the mountains themselves were abominations that should be expunged so humanity could finally know true peace?

She fled the synagogue and threw herself upon the mercy of anyone she could find. The Prince, her sire, her clanmates. As she ranted of the lowly rabbi’s great plan of destruction, it was clear to the court that she was truly mad. Son seemed amused by it, far too amused by her sudden isolation and pariah status to consider that she might be right.

To this night, she continues her crusade to expose the cult for what it is. But even as she does so, she can’t escape the nagging doubt at the back of her mind that maybe Basaras was right.

Luego viene la ficha y sus relaciones con otros vástagos al detalle. Lo terrorífico de este personaje es como abusan de él y lo victimizan, injertándole quirúrgicamente una máscara en la cara (debido a su notoriedad), humillándola, torturándola, captándola en un culto. Teniendo en cuenta que, aunque ha tenido dinero, ha sido miserable y ha vivido hundida en la depresión y teniendo en cuenta que, en el fondo, el místico del abismo podría tener razón, una vida como la suya no merece ser vivida.

Desde Onyx path ya comienzan a filtrarnos imágenes de Hijos de la sangre, la primera expansión de Cults, un libro de personajes al estilo de Hijos de la Inquisición, Hijos de la noche e Hijos de la revolución.

ostras, descoloca un poco el señor mayor rodeado de niños. Da mal rollo. Lo único que se me ocurre es que esos niños revoltosos sean espíritus.

En el culto de Mitrhas, me había parecido entender todo el rato que se jactaban de que los más avezados serían capaces de resistir la luz del sol y luego no ponen una disciplina de culto. Entiendo que sería Fortaleza 5 amalgama con Presencia, que permita resistir durante un ratillo...(Igual se temieron las críticas del tipo de vampiros brillantes de Crepúsculo)

Las Bahari tienen ese poder, la vida vuelve a ellas hasta el punto de ser menos no-muertos y poder salir una hora antes del anochecer y una hora después del amanecer, cuando el Sol todavía no está en lo alto. Se encuentra en la ficha de conocimientos del reglamento básico, página 382.

En el Culto a Mithras, todas las referencias al Sol son referencias a Mithras. Dice que puden contemplar su luz porque Mithras es La Luz. De hecho en Fall of London, aparece una versión de Majestad (Presencia) mejorada, que Mithras usa con sus seguidores. Es un poder de antiguo, ya que es una amalagama de nivel 5.

Pág. 165 de Fall of London

"It’s impossible to see the physical form of Mithras, as he radiates power and light in blinding brightness – an Amalgam the methuselah developed centuries ago. The characters feel an overwhelming urge to kneel, and beg for forgiveness for sullying the God with their lowly presence."

Por explicarlo en otros términos, Mithras es luz y es poder, Lilith es vida y es venganza. La luz de Mithras no es la verdadera luz de Dios, es la luz de un dios. Mithras no revitaliza a sus seguidores, como Lilith, sino que los fortalece.
