RP Hooks


Trick is open to lots of different styles of RP. Here's just a few hooks that might pull people into a scene with him.

Natural
  • Poor: He's not broke but it's not like he can pass up 20 bucks. He's on his own without much of a job or job-related skills. He's known to do the occasional odd job here and there to keep him in food and coffee.
  • Hustler: It's not something that he's done often but when you're down to you're broke, 20 bucks is 20 bucks or in his case 40 is 40.
  • Student: He's an occasional student at the local University though he doesn't live on campus.
  • Author: he is what you might call a starving artist. Meaning that he's not being paid for his work but he doesn't let that stop him. He writes what he sees, usually, so he's constantly scribbling away at this or that in one of many journals and notebooks he carries with him.
Supernatural
  • Working Class Warlock: His materials are inexpensive, commonly available and generally what’s on-hand. His magic is fairly straightforward, working-class and without many frills. He’s the guy who would spend his evenings pouring over Chinese take out while piecing together how to create a magical effect that he saw in a movie or tv show. He’s usually trying to find some way to get a payday to keep the wolves at the door.
  • Tomes and Texts: Not everyone can have a library stacked with ancient tomes but not every secret needs to be bound in goat skin. Composition journals and spiral notebooks are more his speed. Most of the occult stuff out in the world is absolute crap worthless but but he’s started collecting those few things that seem to work. His books of rituals look like a gothling took a class in scrapbooking; full of pages torn from books, handwritten scrawl, diagrams in marker, cheap photocopies, etc.
Motivations
“Magic is Real.
Magic is Power.
Power is Addictive.
Magic is a Drug. ”

Personality
  • Passive no More: For most of his life, Timmy (though he prefers to use the nickname 'Trick' now) was a passive guy. He wasn't too tall, wasn't too muscled, wasn't great at sports but that was ok for him. He was pushed around a lot by his peers and put in a corner more times than he could count. However, once he woke up to find the fire within him, he's become vastly more confident (possibly even over confident) in his life. He tries not to fall into his old, reclusive habits as best he can and that could mean speaking to strangers, voicing his concerns when he sees them and the like.
  • Anti-Bully: He's not a hero by any stretch of the imagination, but should he see someone being bullied by another it could (quite literally) lite a fire in him. He would have to step in and show the bully a taste of their own medicine. This is not, necessarily, for the person being bullied but rather against the person doing it.
  • Timmy the Terrific: Deep in Trick’s heart he started out wanting to be able to wow an audience with his magical abilities. At first it was based on a desire to get the approval of his grandparents and their friends. Later, when he was growing up, it was to redirect the laughter of his classmates. He wanted them to laugh and cheer at his magic, not at his misfortune. After a while, he just wanted them to stop laughing.
  • Passionate: Trick is sick of suppressing his urges and desires. He -wants- to feel the fire of passion, of creativity, of music, art, etc. He's become serious about his art and though he may not be the best person to pick up a pencil or a brush, he's not going to let that stop him. He may fill a dozen books with crappy art, weird and disturbing poetry, god-awful lyrics and the like but that doesn't mean he shouldn't keep trying to feed that 'spark' within him.
  • Presto he aint: Though he may want to have phenomenal cosmic power, his knowledge of magic, the occult, the arcane (etc.) is limited to a small ‘bag of tricks’. He doesn’t do stage magic - the idea of getting up in front of a crowd isn’t something that he’d be willing to do unless there was a gun pointed at him and even then he’d try and wriggle out of it. His magic isn’t subtle. His magic is big, bright, flashy, vulgar, violent and final.
Background

It all started when Timothy was twelve years old and he was spending a summer break with his grandparents in Ohio. That was the summer that his grandfather bought him a ‘Magic Shop’ boxed gift full of little magic tricks that he could learn to perform for his friends and family. It turned out that his grandfather was an amateur magician back in his youth and had met his wife when he was on a small tour of the area. She even became his assistant for a time but it was just a fun little hobby for the two of them. He loved the looks of shock and surprise on his grandparents faces when he would produce their card or levitate a ball in front of them. He was hooked. The entire summer he practiced and practiced his skills and performed for his grandparents and their friend every weekend. He wanted a cool stage name like his grandpa; Marvin the Marvelous. But “Timmy the Trickster” was a bit too long to say. By the time he went back he had been given a new nickname by his small group of fans; “Trick”.
