After an invitation from TheMythLives and a bit of U2U I submit the following concept of character for discussion and group approval.
Name: Ahab Star
Age: Tells a story of transformation in the late 1960's, but is around 2000 and is natural born
Bloodline: Bastet (Were-cat)
Notes on Bastets in general: Similar to Black Dogs as they are not slaves to the moon for transformation, yet are inclined to be aligned to Werewolves
as their amount of transformation can vary from 100% cat to 100% human. While not as strong as werewolves, they are more agile, swift and stealthy.
Hearing is lesser but quite acute especially closer to the source and have articulated ears for tracking. Vision is excellent in very low light and
can detect subtile movement. Whiskers are articulated and can sense vibrations and air disturbances. Bastets can be created from external sources
similar to werewolves but can also be born via mating by bastet linage and sometimes even human-bastet couplings. Bastets tend to be fierce hunters
and assassins and usually hunt alone, occasionally in small groups for difficult targets.
Bio: Ahab Star is a bit of a wild-card and loner. He associates more with humans and encourages and seeks out more eccentric behavior among humans.
Always well groomed and attired and possesses a quirky and often insufferable demeanor, taking great self pleasure in imitating various humans and
telling bizarre tales that no one is sure of their validity. His true nature is deadly, calculating and usually extreme in effectiveness,
ruthlessness and creativity. The flashes between demeanor and nature may be the only warning given before he pounces or formulates a secret plan for
later when least expected.
He often tells of the night of his transformation happening one night in 1968 while trying to pick an exquisitely beautiful woman that was actually
trying to pick him up. The bar was hazy from the smoke of a thousand thai-sticks blazing away as Jefferson Airplane's “White Rabbit” blared
through the cheap house speakers. Using the song as guide to stagger out to the street and make our way to a secluded spot for an impromptu expression
of free love, a small calico alley cat streaked across the street and leapt into my arms and began rubbing and licking my cheek. My sufficiently
seduced companion peered over her pale blue rectangular framed glasses and grinned widely at this kitty's sudden affection and said that she was so
jealous. Well, I AM the cat elder god, you know.
No, not yet you aren't.From there everything went black and I awoke the next morning in a wet gutter with a dirty grey cat
licking the fur off my teeth from the previous night's drinking.
