Introduction

"The ads all call me fearless, but that's just publicity. Anyone who thinks I'm not scared out of my mind whenever I do one of my stunts is crazier than I am."
-- Jackie Chan

Stunt Performer:
A stunt performer, often referred to as a stuntman, or daredevil, is someone who performs dangerous stunts, often as a career.

Contacts
"Sad love and glad wars? Gentle, but courageous? You balance on the knife's edge."
"COBRA Operative deluxe, even if not being quiet on her feet. And it is not cheating if you don't say it is not allowed!"
"You danced in the moonlight alone for so long, you stopped to notice when others are around you. Even when the stars come down to watch you."
"Too many vines can choke even the tallest trees. You need to be wound less tightly, Rosethorn."
"For a lump of stone, you get around, Cliff of Dover. And our threads are intervined in the tapesty for some reason. Curious.".
"Naive little thing, lost at Sea. No wonder you reach for straws. They won't help you, Bleeding Heart. Learn to paddle.".
"Bonemancer, Shaman of Owl and Bear. You sought to be kept aloft by chains, now you are running free. As long as you don't run from something, you have my blessings."
"Never ugly, but still a duckling, now slowly turning into a Swan."

RP Hooks
  • Stuntman
Keris has worked on many movies doing stuntwork. If you are in the Entertainment or Media Business, you may have met at a party or on set around Hollywood or elsewhere in the world.
  • Martial Arts / Personal Trainer
Keris does work training others in marital arts and acts as a personal trainer. His services are generally spread through word of mouth.
  • Wanderer
Partly due to what he is, and partly because of his work, Keris has traveled far and wide in the world. Did he meet you in this little town just outside of the Brazillian jungle where they were shooting that pirate movie? Or in that small japanese village where he studied that obscure variant of kempo for a few months?
  • Languages
His travels have left him with a wide array of languages he speaks fluently: French, German, Portugese or Spanish? No problem. Arabic or Farsi? Swahili or Africaans? Second nature. Mandarin or Cantonese? Those are in his repertoire as well. Or is the problem the speaking? His occasional charity work made him pick up ASL for those who might not hear or speak.
  • Streetwise
He has been gone from Prospect for a while, but some people in his 'hood' still remember the young men before he made his 'escape' to L.A. and beyond. A few of the older gang members do return his nods, others give him glares when he wanders into other parts of the city. Are you one of those he might have met in Prospect five or six years ago?
  • Fame
Recently been involved in a accident at one of the movie sets for an undercover agent movie, Keris ended up shot due to a mixup with live fire ammunition. The through-and-through hitting his left thigh set back production and put Keris out of work for six weeks. It is unclear who leaked the story, but parallels were drawn with the deaths of Bruce and Brandon Lee, which gave Keris a bit more exposure to movie-enthusiasts than his usual 'background' work of stunt doubling does. There might be a cult following that try to 'spot' him in the movies that list him in the credits now.

The Past
"You're the smoke to your mirrors."
"I did not tip nor tumble you. You are good at this all by yourself. Makes me wonder what accidents I could even cause for her, if I wished to. Let's see that you make your getaway first, though."

Bard's Tongue 
You speak the truth, uncannily so. Things you say tend to come true. This is not a facility for blessing and cursing, or an Effect that can be ruled by any conscious control.
Media Ties 
You have both influence over the contacts in the local media.
Gift of Babel 
One of Eshu's original duties was to serve as Olorun's linguist, and as such he knew every language that ever was. Your character retains some of this flair and can potentially master an astonishing number of languages.
