Character Creation Examples

Pinky (George Henry) Pinkerton (built on a basis of 8 character points)

Pinky is fairly well off; his father sends him a good allowance without fail every month which is enough for Pinky to live a life of leisure in his Chelsea flat though he does have to keep an eye on his expenditure (The Readies +2). He is a little brighter than the average Drone (Old Grey Matter +1).
He enjoyed sports at school and has kept himself fit during the three years since he left (Vim & Vigour +2) and he is especially good at running (Running +1).
He is fairly well dressed and averagely respected (The Outer Crust 0).
He notices a pretty girl when he sees one and enjoys female company (romantic resistance -1).
He employs a gentleman's gentleman, whose salary costs him a considerable portion of his allowance. (Readies reduced to 1)
