Ghost Touched Burglar
High Aspect: Ghost Touched Burglar
As a child Cinder almost died from malaria while traveling with her parents through the jungles of Bora Gora. An ancestor named Hahn Pho in the netherworld saved her life but the touch of death left her changed, with the ability to see the dead and read the history of items she touches.
Trouble: Death follows her…
Death follows Cinder. Literally. Ghosts are always around her, always seeking assistance. She does whatever she can to assist them, including seeking the help of others (and assisting them if need be) if it will just shut the spirit world up for a little while.
Where Did You Come From?
Cinder was born in Korea to parents who were archeologists who died in the jungles of South America. After their death she became a street urchin to keep herself and her sister alive until she hit a big score that paid for her to go back to school. She graduated from Brown with her doctorate in Archaeology and a B.S. in parapsychology. Once she was out of school, she used the last of her big score to buy a little shop and put her sister Kaelee through school.
Aspect: Knows just a little too much…
What shaped you: After the death of her parents, Cinder was left to take care of herself and her younger sister. She used her ability to read the history of items at first to create a small magic show. The show eventually led to petty theft and from there to major burglary. It is easy to break into someone’s home when the car keys tell you what the alarm code is.
Aspect: Fractured a law or three when she was younger…
First Adventure: Edge of a Broken Heart
A ghost named Colin helps Cinder save a woman trying to commit suicide. He then enlists Cinder in finding out where his donated heart went, refusing to cross over until she helps him. Of course, helping him involved breaking and entering, a little sneaking around in a hospital ward and enlisting the help of (insert character here). The end game is more luck than skill, but Cinder and her partner make it out alive.
Aspect: Scoundrel’s luck.
