Description Template

Susan Conway

Name: Susan Conway
Age: Mid-20s

Representative Tarot Card: Knight of Pentacles
Tradition: Euthanatos (Lhaksmists)
Cabal: Vigilum Nox
Chantry Position: Member

Physical Description: Appearance 4 [Physically Fit] || Dexterity 5 [Feline Grace]
Standing between five and five-and-a-half feet and under 120 lb., Susan doesn't initially present an imposing figure, at least not until she's angry. Built like a professional athlete in their prime, her natural attractiveness presents itself more from her healthy figure and complexion than any particular style or exotic appearance. Her grey-green eyes are easy to fall into and betray her above average intellect. While her dress varies, more often than not she's found in black with her blonde hair in a lose ponytail falling a little over halfway down her back.
Notable Possessions: Susan always wears a ring that has moonstones instead of precious gems. She also on occasion has a single sword - one that used to be a part of a pair - that is made of some kind of blackened steel with sapphire-embedded engravings of several key formulas for physics. Above the hilt on the blade is an etching of a gear with a rose blooming in the center. This sword is a Wonder.

Personality Overview: Charisma 3
[Personality description needs an update for the raise in Charisma, shift of Resonance]
Noticeable Merits/Flaws: Double-Jointed || Cat-like Balance
Susan is a creature of physical power and grace, and it shows. Her stride is confident, not just from personality but from someone who knows they can react in an instant. Among Tradition mages Susan has a reputation as a skilled Nephandi Hunter.

Known Recent History: Susan arrived to Providence around January of 2012 and almost immediately took up the position of Sentinel of the new Chantry; those who had been around knew that she funded a decent amount of the construction there. There was some complicated degree of a dynamic between Susan and the Deacon of the Chantry, though near August or September of the same year it became apparent that Susan was involved with Willow Bellerose.

Susan shunned cabals when the idea was broached and adopted by the members of the Chantry in November 2012, though she paired herself with fellow Euthanatos Hayley Flores; she left the meeting almost as soon as it devolved to group discussions among potential cabals; Willow was conspicuously absent during the Chantry-wide meeting. Later that month, Susan facilitated negotiations between the dragons and the Chantry in attempts to avert a war, and these negotiations resulted in Willow giving up her magic and identity to meet the dragons' demands, for which Susan was present.

Almost immediately following this event, Susan dropped contact with the Chantry until mid-December, where she returned to once more take on the duties of Sentinel she had dropped during her absence. It is known by most that in early January 2013, Susan's quick thinking was partially responsible for the survival of her housemate Hayley.

Susan continued about her normal life and duties with little notable changes according to the public eye until October 2013, where she was abruptly discharged from the office of Sentinel for a 'breach of Protocol', and she swiftly removed herself from the Chantry until the beginning of November when it was announced that she had been restored as a member of the Chantry. At the next group meeting in mid-November, becoming a part of a cabal became mandatory, and she joined with Hayley, Gary, and new-person Henna to form a cabal focused on research and the collection of knowledge of a variety of topics. Later that month, she petitioned the Council to return as the liaison between the chantry and the dragons, but her request was denied.
General Mortal Knowledge: Susan is rich - the type of rich where money becomes almost a non-issue in almost every aspect of life. She has little issue spreading the wealth and it is a bit of a challenge to anyone else to pay for anything when she's around. She owns the notable Halsey House in College Hill.
