    "There will always be a motive for crime, if we ever get to a point where people attacking each other in the streets is commonplace, at that point society has failed."

    "Let him talk. Let him discourse; it will ease his conscience. I am satisfied with having defeated him in his own castle."

    My problem with him is that he thinks he's the modern Caesar, but is more of a modern Marc Anthony.

    Because without that the audience wouldn't know what they are thinking. I think the character is mildly aware of meta-conventions. And is annoyed by them. Pick them as they come up in your game.

    I'm not sure what to add to this one. Besides the thick headed-ness I think they are not quite sure what the irony is but understand it is going to take them a while to figure it out.

    And because I think there are some good quotes in it: Boundless Nuggets of Questionable Martial Wisdom.

    Not mine. I want to credit it to Seth Skorkowsky, but I can't remember if it was actually one of his quotes or not.
    Any case, it's a good motto for a non-caster only concerned with material wealth and fire. Lots and lots of fire

    -Emergency Exit

    Fight-happy. They want to fight and they want their opponent to fight back. That sounded more predatory than I originally meant. I was going for more of a thrill seeker, based off of the joyous response.
    Spoiler: "You got a crossbow?" "Just take the gun! Its the same principle!"

    This feels very comic-book-like, but I think it would be a fun character to build that could actually use a crossbow better than a modern firearm.

    So it is either straight emotional magic or some weird & powerful psychic stuff. If your system supports the first go with that. For the others I'm going point out the potential weird & powerful psychic who also doesn't quite know what they are doing.

    They seem rather controlled and methodical, even under pressure. Taking slow measured action instead of rushing forward. Although baring being mute writing down a message is an oddly slow way to do it so there is an interesting question there.

    The quote is someone talking about themselves, so it is "an undead abomination who is very blunt."
    Although I do enjoy the other quotes I have nothing to add to them.

    Spoiler: "You do not have permission to die."
    Show

    I liked the line because its meaning shifted with where the good Doktor stood on the slope to hell. At his best, his patients did not have permission to die, because he would bring to bear every trick known to medicine, and a few others he'd just made up, to pull them through. At his worst, his enemies did not have permission to die, because he had not yet squeezed all use from them. At his most calculating, he himself did not have permission to die, because he would ration to the microgram the intellect-boosting mutagens that were slowly killing him, would keep his mind intact for precisely long enough to heal his lost love Leah. And in his nightmares, Leah had been trying to die for years, pinned in agonized alchemical limbo by his cowardly refusal to let go.

    For most of the time I played him, no one but our GM knew whether Doktor Krauss was a hero, a villain, or just a sad old man in denial. It all depended on what, if anything, his brain-in-a-jar wife was thinking...and Leah's thoughts were her own.

    Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
    The Lord took her away from me
    She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good
    So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

    We were out on a date in my daddy's car
    We hadn't driven very far
    There in the road, up straight ahead
    A car was stalled, the engine was dead
    I couldn't stop, so I swerved to the right
    I'll never forget the sound that night
    The screamin' tires, the bustin' glass
    The painful scream that I heard last.

    Oh, where oh where can my baby be?
    The Lord took her away from me
    She's gone to heaven, so I got to be good
    So I can see my baby when I leave this world.

    When I woke up, the rain was pourin' down
    There were people standing all around
    Something warm runnin' in my eyes
    But somehow I found my baby that night
    I lifted…

    This line brings to mind something of a tragic character. Someone that has been through hell and is, at least on the inside, quite the worse for wear. Yet they keep presenting a hopeful, cheerful facade to the outside, whether as a means of inspiring their allies, or in the hope that if they pretend to still posses hope and confidence, things will align to prove them right.

    From a friend, for paladins (and good characters in general)
    Your Name is ‘Somebody’. If there is a call for help, you are the one to answer; when you hear ‘somebody do something’, ‘somebody help me’, you are Somebody, child of Anyone. If you can’t help directly, do everything you can anyway. None of us deserve to be alone.
    I follow a general rule: better to ask and be told no than not to ask at all.
