If anything is denied, let me know and I'll rearrange as needed

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!

Resources Justification

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

Influence Justification
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.
