SAMPLE BACKGROUND

Name: Rainier Flannagan
Handle/Alias: Rainier
-----------------------------------           ------------------------------
Tradition: Celestial Chorus
Faction (if any): The Brothers of St. Christopher (protect all persons in trouble at all costs)
Avatar: Kiraman Katibin (the two angels that stand for heaven and hell and determine which path you take)
Essence: Questing (seeking balance)
Resonance: Strident, Unyielding, Taxing

How you view the spheres:
Rainier focuses in life, mind, spirit, and prime. He views these spheres as best connected when it comes to dealing with the harrowing dangers of the world around us. Every body, mind, and soul has been smashed with sin, hellfire, tortures, you name it. But it's all self-inflicted. Fucking martyrs that need to be woken up to the truth. And if you aren't brought down through your own damn shortcomings, the demons and angels take root in your soul for their little games.

Mentor?
His mentor is Gabriel...whether he likes it or not.

Supernaturals? Met them/hate them/indifferent?
He's dealt with just about all of them. He prefers mages, spirits, and ghosts. Angels and demons can go fuck themselves. Garou are hairy fucking messes. Vampires can be your best friend and enemy.
