Character: Billy Pilgrim
Template: Minor Talent
High Concept Aspect: Ethereal Promoter
Trouble Aspect: Existential Nihilist
Background Events: White, lower-class PHX native. Self-Educated. Loner, no living relatives (but has ghost relatives). Has a few friends, but most people (current/past) are weirded out by Billy talking to himself
Phase Aspect: Hobo Joe (covered in dirt from work as caretaker, talks to self. Smells bad from interactions with ghosts. Most people think he’s a hobo)
Rising Conflict: The previous caretaker / gravekeeper of Billy’s current graveyard recognized Billy’s “affliction” (ability to talk to ghosts) during one of Billy’s many skipped days at school (he didn’t fit in because he would talk to the ghosts that haunted the lockers near math class). The gravekeeper took Billy under his wing and gave him a purpose in life by teaching him how to cater to the hundreds of ghosts that roamed the property. Some of the more conservative, anti-magic locals have fought to shut down his graveyard. Many non-magic people looking to inter their relatives are put off by Billy’s apparent lack of respect for life. Billy has learned that keeping to himself is in his best interest.
Phase Aspect: Get off my lawn (reacts violently to people intruding on his space / belongings)
The Story: Used a mob of ghosts to threaten / strong-arm the local HOA + conservative groups that were trying to pass regulations to force him out of the area. Teamed up with local scumbags/criminals for information+assistance+physical access to the leaders houses.
Phase Aspect: Debt-Collectee (has connections / debts owed to some of the criminal underworld)
