So, I have a character named Penny Dreadful in this post of my tracker. For quick reference, I'll also post the character sheet here - but it's not really so much a character sheet at this point as a pic, a name, and some notes.
periodic seizures in which she “freezes up”, sometimes contorting, with irregular sudden jerking muscle spasms; fully conscious during seizures and in extreme pain
jerks about more frequently as her seizures end and subsequently blacks out; experiences short-term memory loss thereafter
her seizures also result in long-term memory loss on rare occasions
doesn’t know her real name but “Penelope D” is tattooed in tiny gothic script along the inside of her left forearm; calls herself “Penny”
never uses contractions; may not be aware of them? Despite otherwise speaking perfect English
So what you see there is literally all I have on the character.
Some ooc background here...I had a character under this name years ago, about which I remember basically nothing. My initial thoughts on resurrecting her were to throw her into a Fallout RP centered on Boston, since that's the main setting of Fallout 4 and the one I'm familiar with. However, I don't really do most post-apoc RPGs well. But I definitely want to throw her into a sci-fi/sci-fantasy RP. The only problem is that I literally don't know what to do with her, which is probably why it's taken me so long to bring her back. I had thought to give her some kind of powers tied in some mysterious manner to her seizures/blackouts, but I wasn't sure what to do for that - maybe something like mediumship, visions, something on the less substantial side of weird. The important point thus far is that she doesn't know who she is due to the long-term memory loss she has suffered a few times over the years (as opposed to the much more frequent short-term memory loss) from her blackouts. It is safe to assume that this is a life-long problem.
So the main thing is, like I said, that I want to stick her in a sci-fi/sci-fantasy RP but I'm not sure what to do with her. I see her being a little on the darker, more twisted side - not necessarily evil but something more along the lines of, say, the Twilight Zone or Dark Shadows. So she would be the creepy-weird character, if you're looking for token characters, though she herself might not necessarily be creepy (personality/etc-wise). Since I have no idea what kind of RP to throw her into, I'd like some ideas and plotting. That's what this thread is for.
Again, the notes above are pretty much all I have for her, so I would welcome some brainstorming.
