is now a "living" vampire, thanks to an
incident where Hawthorne, an idiot, ripped the
throat out of an angel who was using babies as
poker chips and accidentally consumed some of its
blood (all during a frenzy)

Destroy the Sabbat.
Re-Lower his Humanity
so he's an effective combatant again.
Figure out how to make
some kind of a home in Tokyo, despite the
fact that as a Western vampire he
*really* should not be there.
-this is particularly bad if it's within
his sight and it's a more severe trigger
the younger the child or the more
helpless the person is. It's also a more
severe trigger if it's parents/family
harming the person.
Partners -Hawthorne has a pretty big hate
on for abusive partners as well. if he
hears about someone abusing their partner
or witnesses it, that's a pretty big
-It's not the highest of
his triggers (that's seeing children get
hurt) but it's actually a pretty surefire
way to get him to frenzy if he's already
in a bad mood. This doesn't just apply to
being called "she" or a girl
but any kind of implication that he's
somehow less of a man than anyone else.
The Sabbat -Not so much when they're mentioned
but when/if he becomes aware that a
combatant or enemy is Sabbat that's
pretty much insta-frenzy for Hawthorne.
Assault/Harassment -This is the same as his abusive
partners thing. If he encounters someone
who's done this/he knows has done this
it's a frenzy trigger.
Bigotry Hawthorne is a big huge SJW and
will respond to *any* kind of bigotry
with violence (which he did when he was alive

born Roisin O'Faolan in May of 1987 to Siobhan and
Matthew O'Faolan -- his mother was a first gen Irish
immigrant and his father the youngest in a long line of
Irish Americans living in Chicago. He had a few scattered
interactions with the Supernatural as a child --
encounters with ghosts, changelings and other
Supernatural beings that were part of his dad's extended
As a teenager, Roisin got involved in the punk scene in
Chicago and became involved in the local queer scene
after coming out as gay (but not trans) to supportive
parents when she was sixteen years old. Since she was a
little bit more aggressive and violent than other girls,
Roisin looked for ways to channel that anger and
aggression into something positive -- which lead to her
taking up several self-defense classes. Mostly, she
focused on learning to leverage the fact that she was
smaller than her opponents to her advantage -- focusing
on speed and accuracy of blows more than power.
had a lot of girlfriends as a teenager and continued to
have difficulty committing to a relationship into her
college years -- though she usually tried to remain
friends with her exes. Despite a valiant effort, Roisin
ended up failing college and started working as a bouncer
at a local lesbian club -- which she excelled at, even if
it started getting her dragged into more of the
Supernatural than she would've liked.
the age of twenty, Roisin had been questioning her gender
identity (and to a lesser extent, her sexual identity).
She'd never felt "connected" to being a
girl/woman and despite coming to the understanding that
being a "woman" didn't mean she had to embrace
"femininity" or the expected feminine roles and
had absolutely embraced being masculine woman and a butch
lesbian, she didn't feel quite right.
2011, Roisin was pretty sure she had her life together
and was going in the direction she wanted: she'd been
together with the same girl for the last 9 months, they'd
moved in together and she had just started to get a name
for herself in the local MMA/UFC circles...
top of that, Roisin had been discussing her identity
issues with her girlfriend -- the fact that it wasn't femininity
that was the issue but rather, the idea of being a
woman at all .. And found that her girlfriend
was incredibly supportive. As such, Roisin had started to
experiment with using the name Hawthorne and was looking
into the process of medical transition after spending the
last four years struggling so much.
Hawthorne would find his life plans being disrupted and
be dragged into the world of the supernatural in an
irreversible way when he was embraced by a member of the
Sabbat on his way home from a Halloween party with his
this day, Hawthorne has no idea what happened or how they
were ambushed -- all he can remember is something hitting
him from behind, taking him surprise and knocking him
out. The next thing he knew, everything was dark and it
felt like the weight of the earth itself was pushing down
on top of him. Every attempt to pull in breath felt
unnatural but more than that -- every attempt only got
him a mouthful of dirt. In a blind panic, he managed to
claw his way out of the shallow grave only to be scooped
up and thrown into a battle he had no idea existed
before that night. The next few nights in Hawthorne's
memory are a blur of blood, pain, fear and rage.
was "lucky" enough to be the only Sabbat
survivors from the attack and was taken in his Sire's
pack... The trauma of his Embrace, the loss of his
girlfriend and the shock of what he was forced into
immediately after sort of shattered Hawthorne -- and
being forced into Creation Rites only made that worse.
Desperate for approval and desperate to get away from
remembering his hopes and plans for mortal life,
Hawthorne dove into being Sabbat with the same passion
he'd tackled everything else in his life. And at least
the Sabbat didn't seem to give a fuck about
being gay, straight or trans -- that was human bullshit.
He was even able to get a few favors from a local
Tzimisce to help him get a body that suited him a little
bit better (something he does not like to
remember even remotely.)
so, for six years, Hawthorne was a devoted member of the
Sabbat, letting his humanity and connection to it
degrade... Despite the fact that something kept nagging
at him -- something itched in the back of his mind
that he didn't like this. He didn't like who he
had become, he didn't like what he was doing. Some part
of him felt sick at it and try as he might, he couldn't
quite excise that part of himself. Eventually, those
feelings came to a head and Hawthorne made his break for
it -- following a particularly disastrous frenzy that
occured because he found out that several members of his
pack had a taste for innocence -- and the younger, the
better... This all culminated in diablerizing his Sire
and making a run for it. He ran for the outskirts of
Chicago and got involved with a group of Anarchs
operating in the Suburbs.
that didn't last for too long and about a week before the
start of the story, Hawthorne's little gang of
former-Sabbat anarchs got wiped out by the Sabbat, once
again leaving Hawthorne the only survivor. Panicking, he
got himself on the soonest random flight out of the country
that he could and thus, ended up in Tokyo.
