Blizack over at Dungeonskull Mountain inadvertently pitched an idea to me; Take a picture provided and give the central character some Break!! Stats. I probably could have gone into more detail, but I liked being simple with these - seemed like a more effective way of kick starting the imagination of the reader.
(I posted the pictures as links in hopes the artists would get the attention, just go ahead and click them and it should open them up in a new window)
Trait: Graceful, Deadly, Single-Minded (+1 Deftness, +1 Might, -1 Insight)
Quirk: Stylish (+2 Bonus on Aura Rolls where positive physical appearance is a factor, need to spend at least 50% more money on anything worn to maintain this bonus)
Notes: Bastion Armor, Long Grip Weapon, Standard Shield
Trait: Clever, Deadpan (+2 Insight, -1 Aura)
Quirk: Nearsighted (Need Glasses, excess study means an additional language learned [Beast-tongue])
Notes: Alchemist Elective ability, Guardian Animal Companion (Growlhund), Pet Animal Companion (Purr), Star Gem Lantern
Obake Murder Princess
Trait: Fierce (+1 Grit)
Quirk: Unhinged (+2 Attack, -1 Defense)
Notes: Carnivora Animal Form (Tails as a tell), Puella Pugna Elective ability (Unarmed attacks as a Heart's Blade)
OK, back to actually writing the game for now. If anyone has an especially neat character they want me to work like this, please feel free to send it my way...you know, somehow.
