Stereotypes
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND HIS MANY NAMES AND TITLES RUN THE LENGTH OF THE COSMOS, BEHOLD: The Golden One, The Unconquered Sun, The King-of-Kings, The First and Last Flame, The Golden Conqueror, The Heavenly Lion, Great Goldmane, The Brightest, BUT WE CALL HIM - The Shining Tyrant.

“Do you understand the true power of a sovereign? A raw man must kill with his bare hands. The battered warrior, a weapon. The commander, his bellowing voice, the conspirator, a whispered word. But all these pale compared to kingship. A true sovereign need not flex a single muscle in his body, and a hundred men die. A true sovereign may murder without a single impulse, or even intent, sight, breath, or even thought of his murder. He is an idiot indifferent to his own violence. He has sublimed the act of obliteration.

That is the meaning of kingship.”

AU VAM, Pankrator of the Yellow City

Contacts
Mei No one is sure why, but these two are seen together frequently. Rumors abound.
Valentin "Some say I should kill you for what you are, others, that you are Kin so what does it matter? Valentin will prove himself worthy of The People - or he won't."
Journey "It is said that the Wolf-Killer and Sept Leader have an understanding." "It's said, huh? By who?" "No one's that brave, or stupid, to give their name."
Phillipe "You are wise, and your mind is open. I am not, and my mind is not, your words are as valuable as your ancestor's were to mine."
Dark "Princess of the Rains, Eldest Sibling. Your homage is accepted, appreciated."
Niccia "Together we hold one crown, one heart, one goal: Unity through Faith, Loyalty through Love, Ferocity through Passion."
Amethyst "The Glass Walkers should be honored to have you, and you should be honored to have them. Until the cities burn down to molten metal, rock, and cinders."
Chione "A momentary convergence of two powerful bloodlines, in one Spider-Face."
Faith "Fenrir's Daughter. Huntress material. Police Officer, SWAT responder. Apply pressure until goo - and information - ooze out."
Sandra "The Fenrir Standard. She is the one who navigated peace between two warring Germanic tribes: Wolf, and Lion. Peace through firepower."
Vance "Kin of Khan. Large. Marine. War-Machine. Weak behind the left knee, and attacks from the right-rear. The Standard of what August expects from Khan Kin."
Olivia "Olivia and I, we have been together for an age and before that. We met when we were young in the fertility festivals, and later, in war, again, in war, and again - in war. My Huntress. She is as dangerous as Fenrir, but hunts like a Bastet, with the mind of a mortal woman."
Lautl "Huntress. Wife. Student. August has been tailoring this relationship in Argentina with the secretive (and hateful) Balam for over a decade, and now his reward: Makes-the-Rain-Red."
Yaretzi "Sight beyond this world, my blood will merge with the Memory of Gaia. Cahlash's Brood will be forced to know, forced to remember, force to bleed on dry earth and water the ground with fire-cleansed blood. PRAISE THE SUN. Our bloodlines merge, UNITY THROUGH CONVERGENCE, THE DRAGON'S ARE NO LONGER ALONE." Kalisha "I've hunted you for two years, and it has been two years of patience, of small-steps. Like hunting Cape Buffalo, or preparing to tear an Asura out of the public eye. Two years of hunting you, and now I have you, and the excitement is palpable."

RP Hooks
Mercenary 
Specializes in training others or in jobs that involve outright violence.
Wanderer 
August isn't fit for staying in one place for too long, but especially inside of the city element he becomes violent. Desert-prowling is an easy way to release some steam.
Gaian/Heaven/Prime 
August is a Simba, and on their best days they can remind one of The Angelic Host. On their worst, nothing more than monsters ripping others to pieces.
Hunting 
Kings love The Hunt, it does not matter if The Prey is on four legs - or two - or if they have no legs at all. The bloodthirsty attitude of Simba is proven in August.
Hand-to-Hand 
August is constantly searching for self-improvement, mostly by cleansing himself in the fire of combat. One of his favored things to do that involves the regular peoples of Prospect; is hand-to-hand fighting. Gyms, Street brawls. Secretive Fight Clubs. Not to mention, most Pugilists do not seem too bothered by the aura of his Rage.
Political 
Yes, believe it or not the Militant Extremist is capable - very capable - of engaging in political schemes, but it should not be surprising that he has no patience for the time it takes in the realm of paperwork and pen-pushing when he comes from a world of AK-47s and machete.

Iron Will 
When you are determined and your mind is set, nothing can divert you from your goals. You cannot be Dominated, and wraiths, mages and changelings using mental attacks against you gain an additional + 3 to their difficulties if you are aware of them and resisting. However, the additional mental defense costs you one Willpower per turn. Even if you are unaware of the attempt, anyone attempting to magically influence you must add + 1 to their difficulty.
Moon Mad 
Seline has branded you with a madness that swells with her fullness and erupts during the full Moon, when she attains her furious state. In game terms, the Bastet character gains an additional +2 Rage during this phase of the Moon, or during visits to the Moon itself. This extra Rage makes him irritable under the best of circumstances, psychopathic under stress. He may have dreams just before every full Moon where he wanders a dead landscape with the blood of innocents & enemies alike on his claws. During waking hours, the character prowls angrily, exploding into violence at any real provocation. This is great if a battle is called for; disastrous if the moment requires a cool head and steady hands. People who can see auras notice that the mad cat's body blazes with hot-white fire; even mortals can tell that something's horrible wrong with that guy in the corner. Maybe now's not the best time to pester him. You, of course, would agree...

I'll huff...and I'll puff...and I'll burn your house down.

xxxxxAugust/Ahnru possesses a flaw called 'Moon Madness' - please read above for a detailed description, during phases of the Full Moon, and the nature of Simba, scenes may raise right to Risk 3. It is a flaw I, the player, try to play out as is worded.

If you are one of the many First Responders and would like to be witness to the aftermath feel free to hit me up.
