| * Wolf out of Time: Billy's pup time was spent training as a war dog in the early 1960's in San Francisco before his first change, after which he was trained and grouped with an all Glass Walker unit on deployment to go fight the Wyrm in Vietnam as American troops tripled in the area. Following in the relatively clear and safe wake of more experienced packs in order to gain training, they entered an unexpected battle with wounded yet formidable foes. Amidst the carnage and casualties, the Atrocity Realm briefly overlapped the area and all combatants were considered tragically lost. The pack did survive for a time while in the realm, though they were slowly picked off and separated over time and lost to the Realm itself. Whether because of cowardice or exhaustion, Billy eventually stopped fighting and allowed himself to be slaughtered in the line of duty while defending the weak, and somehow awoke alive. He is unsure of how exactly he got from dying to arriving, but he's not one to dwell on details and is more concerned with dealing with the age he's been dropped off in. One of his pack mates similarly survived, a Franklin Cooper, AKA Lights-Up-The-Night, in San Francisco arrived back sometime during the 80's, a now aged and battered homid in retirement providing training and advice at the Sept of the Western Eye. Billy didn't like the way things had changed and the reminders of loss, so he politely excused himself and wandered off to go find a new home.
*The World of Tomorrow!: Billy has discovered the joys of machines, and is determined to master robotic engineering, and one day create a giant stomping robot with LASERS FOR EYES! MUAHAHAHAHA!
*Patriotic: Billy is ridiculously patriotic. He loves 'Murica, he loves Democracy, has a serious bug up his ass about Communism, and is generally pretty pissed off that canines aren't allowed to vote. He also doesn't really understand any of those concepts.
*Alternate Identity 5: Legally, he is William Lyndon Cooper, (DOB July 4th 1995), originally from Washington DC. Honorable discharge from the US Army prior to moving to Prospect.
*ArTEEST!: Billy works at the Black Stag Forge and fancies himself an artist. He's actually not bad, however most of what he makes ends up being dangerous in some way. Sharp edges, pointy bits and so on, it's not that he's trying to murder people with art, it's just...It's way more useful if art is weapons grade. ...In self defense, that is. ...Totally.
*How the hell is this a fetish??: Patriot’s Friend - Level 3, Gnosis 7 - The Patriot’s Friend appears and functions much like any other Desert Eagle .50 heavy pistol when not activated, though with a pearly American flag grip, but bound inside is an American bald eagle spirit. The fetish can be activated by shouting a patriotic slogan, (such as ‘Better dead than Red!’) while cocking back the hammer. Rather than a bullet when the trigger is pulled, a large, angry bald eagle will launch from the barrel to attack the target accompanied by an eagle’s cry or a screeched slogan before dissipating and returning to the weapon during the next turn. Uses Firearms as normal to hit the target, with appropriate modifiers. Damage is Aggravated against Wyrm creatures and Communists. Cover is less effective, unless the cover is thick enough, as eagles can steer themselves. Must be regularly cleaned, maintained, and polished, and after a scene's use thanked for its service by humming the Star Spangled Banner while shedding a single tear. May not be used to threaten Democracy, otherwise the gun is likely to misfire due to an angry patriot inside and shoot the user in the foot.
