The questions that follow are not intended to be answered in one word or line. Heck, you don't even have to use them at all. However, the more information you can give about your character, the more real they will seem when play begins. As you will see, some questions are written in Bold. These questions, to my mind at least, are the main questions. The rest are all just there to help you answer the main one by making you think about detail.

When were you born? How old were you when you were Embraced? How long have you existed as a vampire? How old do you look? Are you more mature than you seem? Less?

Where do you hide during the day? Do you have a permanent home at all? Do you stay in the place you inhabited in your mortal life? Do you hide in an abandoned building? The sewers? Do you have anyone to protect you during the day?
