Hope Delta (NPC)
Owned by: Cindy
Age: 25 (ghouled at 20)
Game: Vampire the Masquerade in New Orleans
Job/Skills/PowersGhoul Vassal for Lillian Foster. (Her actual jobs vary)
She is skilled in photography and painting. Has a talent for visual arts and could pick up more.
Ghouls are immune to Delirium and can soak bashing damage, but they can soak lethal damage unlike other mortals. Apart from fueling their Disciplines, they may also use the power of the vampiric blood stored in their bodies to increase Physical Attributes or regenerate a lost limb by spending a variable amount of that blood. They heal damage like a mortal, but can spend their blood to heal damage like a Cainite.
As long as a ghoul has vitae in his body, he does not age.
The power in the domitor’s blood partly carries over to the ghoul. Ghouls cannot go about level one in any power unless their domitor's generation is lower than an eight.
Disciplines (Level one)
Auspex: Grants the vampire supernatural senses
Celerity: This allows the vampire to move at supernatural speed.
Obfuscate: This allows vampires to conceal themselves
Presence: supernatural allure and emotional manipulation which allows Kindred to attract, sway, and control crowds.
Feed just about any living creature a little vampire blood and it becomes a Ghoul, at least temporarily. In VTM, ghouls are omnipresent servants, easily created, and heavily abused - although networks do exist to assist them in escaping their masters. A ghoul’s emotions run to extremes with the heady drug of vitae in his veins — such a creature often falls prey to great rages and disturbing cravings. The name “ghouls” was not chosen at random.
These creatures are created when a vampire feeds his vitae to another creature. Mechanically, this vitae is treated as a single point - for one lunar month, the ghoul has a point of vampiric blood in his system and acquires all the benefits (and drawbacks) of ghouling. Ghouls can hold multiple blood points in their system, but if they try to hold more than a human capacity, it has unpleasant side effects until the vitae replaces their normal blood. As long as a ghoul has vitae in his system, he remains a ghoul: vitae is lost at the rate of one point per month, and when used to power Disciplines. While a ghoul has blood in his system, he will not age.
Animals can also be ghouled, a tactic particularly favored by the Nosferatu. Animal ghouls tend to grow larger and mutate, the result being a somewhat horrifying parody of the original creature. In addition, almost all ghouled animals develop a taste for blood, regardless of their original diets.
WeaknessGhouls are prone to frenzy, although not as strongly as a vampire, but do experience provocation for frenzy more often. In addition, they are addicted to vitae - apart from the deleterious effects of the blood bond, Ghouls are subject to horrible side effects when the supply dries up. Without vitae, a ghoul will rapidly age physically to his actual chronological age, and ghouls over a century will crumble to dust quickly.
Ghouls are addicted to blood, and the control of blood is the primary way that ghouls are managed by their domitors — in addition to more traditional techniques like Dominate.
Physical AppearanceBlonde hair, blue eyes, 5'10"

HistoryHope lived a pretty privileged life growing up. She went to private schools, her parents bough her whatever she want and they were always around. When she was 14 her parents were killed in a car accident. It was at that time Hope found out her privileged life had been made up as her parents owed millions of dollars to the government. Her house was sold, all the money she was supposed to inherit went to paying off debts. There had been a small amount left and Hopes extended family were either too old to take her in or didn't want her. They shipped her off to boarding school where she stayed but the moment she turned eighteen she quit school and got odd jobs while trying to get a modeling contract. She got her contract at age 20 but the night before she was supposed to start; she met Lillian.
