Merits & Flaws Scrutiny
Immortal Fear and Well Rested are both from Liber Des Ghoules.
Immortal Fear is a phobia of being Embraced. Sally likes being a human, warts and all, and would not want her soul almost-certainly condemned as it would be by the Embrace.
Well Rested enables a ghoul to function with only 2 - 3 hours of sleep every 24. Useful for a ghoul and a driven business woman who was trying to raise a family and run a diamond mine in Africa!
Sally – as she
prefers to be called – has a fairly business-like approach to being a ghoul.
She hands over half her net income to her Regnant, and he gives her a
close-to-free hand to continue making money for him.
So, although she has Resources x 5, she rarely has access to all of it – such as when she needs the funds for a major investment and, in that case, she usually ‘tithes’ that much more at the end of the next month. She generates money and makes herself generally useful, and she gets blood in return. It’s simple in theory.
Her other skills
include laundering funds – diamonds are very good for that – smuggling of
small, expensive goods (her pipeline is set up for gemstones, after all) – and
facilitating business deals. She is not the type of ghoul who sits in the haven
all day over her Regnant’s body. The other part of the “deal” she usually
strikes with her Regnant is that she is allowed to look after her family, and
that the Regnant will not try to leverage her fondness for her descendants
against her. Of course, once the Bond is in place, that can change. However, the
absolute quickest way to turn Sally against a person is for that person to harm
her family. Her regnant in the 1970s tried that (he was a Follower of Set and
all-around dickhead) and he’s ash, now. Of course, Sarah had nothing to do
with it directly…
Sally has been a ghoul for 130 years, and has been a part of the diamond industry all that time. Her Industrial influence is limited strictly to that area, and I will play it as such, rather than as ‘general Industrial influence’. However, if the ST’s don’t wish to allow it, then drop it to Industry x3 and raise Transport to x3, please. :)
The ward - Robert Wingrove-Graves - believes that Sarah is his mother – Lady Mary Wingrove-Graves - and does not know that both of his parents died in a road accident in Africa when he was an infant. Mary took the identity of her greatx3 granddaughter (hence the Alt ID) and overtook the boy's upbringing.
