This is a character that I have put over 17 hours of thought into because apparently I "just didn't get it" This is what I have so far, but I don't know how happy I am with it. I guess the guy is supposed to be a playwright, but I sort of pulled that from nowhere and I'm not very confident that I would enjoy that. I am also sort of an outcast according to what a Serpent usually is.

This is where I'm at. I might scrap it and start over. I sort of build this guy in an odd order. I had a loose concept of what I wanted to do, and it was explained to me that it was too one dimensional and that I wouldn't really have much to contribute to a group usually. Taking that loose concept, scrapping half of it, then trying to rebuild it with a different concept, then yet another concept gave me this. Also, I haven't spent all of my bonus points yet.

I love it - Really Dangerous and will screw you up - Worthy of Style indeed! As for the second aspence, it depends what you intend to be your weakness. Some ideas:

I Tread the Boards
I: When performing before an audience (reversals can often be ropey, but when the curtain opens...)
T: When trying to hide your identity (That jaw, that stance, it can only be...)
C: Toward jealousy for any artist receiving more attention than you (I'll show that jumped up little squirt...)

As for characters being one-dimensional, I've not found that as a problem in HotB as long as you are willing to throw in whith the party.
