Quote: This world must die. Not because it is evil or because it is good, the nature of change is above such notions. These humans are so fat and lazy, the heart of Kali Ma calls for the herds to be culled; that alone will save the Dreaming from their disbelief.
Background:Your first memory was of looking around at the ruins of Bangladesh. The death, chaos and wake of destruction made you hopeful, even gleeful. For a while you thought that the entire world was this beautiful. That illusion did not last very long. Inevitably, you met the first banal interlopers in the post-apocalyptic paradise that was your birthplace. When you learned that there was a world outside Mah‚rauravaís ruins you, along with many of your naraka kin, went to see what it was like. The "real world" that you found was quite a shock
Roleplaying Hints: :You are a warrior with a purpose that transcends mere murder. Play the part of the devilís advocate in any situation and voice your unhappiness with the system whenever possible. Your favorite targets are the rich and comfortable who would have no chance in nature whatsoever. You understand that there are rules in the Autumn World, you just do not play by them. This world is very new to you, but you are a fast learner. You prefer to use chimerical weapons, cantrips and the power of the Wyrd to assault your prey, mainly because it leaves the mortal authorities baffled and you in the clear. After all, eyewitnesses are going to sound crazy when they describe your true form, and chimerical weapons never make it to court as "evidence."
Concept: You are an avatar of chaos in a static world that does not want to change. Therefore, you do what any full-blooded child of Kali Ma would do. You force the change and chaos upon the world. You enjoy random acts of violence, not out of sadism or ego, but out of principle. The humans of this world are unfit to rule or even to live. They have tamed their own savage jungle. Between the human concepts of "equality" and "compassion," and the modern miracles of medical science and social welfare, the tribes of man have lost the will to truly live. You hate every facet of the Autumn World, from the nine-to-five jobs, to the mindlessness of the television. You believe that the value of life is defined by death. The day-to-day struggle for survival might once have made the inhabitants of the Waking strong, but not today. While there are still some "Third World" countries where the average human canít survive on handouts and pan-handling, you know that even in these "destitute" settings, very few humans kill their own food anymore.
Now you have taken the "survival of the fittest" principal into your own hands. You are strong and they are weak; you deeply feel the urge to do what comes naturally. Killing the weak is, in your opinion, the only way that agents of death and destruction can make life priceless again. You use your cantrips to shock people out of their sleepy, docile existence. Being a creature of nightmare, you know how to use fear as motivation and pain as a teacher. You use these tools to bring the cause of chaos back into the world, whether the bleeding hearts and scientists want it or not.
