If you have a choice between lucky and good, always choose lucky.

Life is a game, if you're not going to play, why are you here? At the end of the day, you place your bet and you take your chances. It's not that one shouldn't know the odds - one should always know the odds; It's that sometimes the potential pay-off means that even long odds are worth the chance. And sometimes, sometimes, you just have a feeling. A little voice that says 'roll the dice'. Win or lose at least you played. And sure, sometimes you make calculated cover bets or hedge and sometimes you go all in. The trick, the true essence, is knowing when to do each and then not turning back. So figure out what you're willing to risk, make your choice, and let the dice fall as they may. And when your bet is called, hope you're not left holding aces and eights.

Archetype Roster Concept 



You can't win if you don't play, as the saying goes. Risk brings reward, and you're the one willing to get the biggest rewards. Sometimes it all goes wrong, but that's luck for you.



Role in Bonds of Blood

:Did you hear Felicity's back?

Didn't she move away with her parents to San Francisco or something a couple of years ago?
Yeah, well, she's back, apparently and no one is saying why, but it has to have been something serious for them to transfer her right at the end of senior year like that and pack her off to live with a cousin.
Well, it is Felicity. She was always a little wild. Not stupid, but wild. I mean, she'd sit there and calculate how likely she was to be injured jumping off a cliff and then just go do it because apparently a two point five percent likelihood of breaking a bone was worth it. She actually said that to me once. So who's she staying with if her parents aren't back, too?
I heard Ellen's going to be taking care of her.

Someone has to take the risks, and Felicity has always been one of the people willing to do just that. I mean, not if she felt the reward wasn't worth it, but she always had a disturbing tendency to calculate the odds, look at the reward, look at the risk, and make a choice. Oh, and she does math in her head. When she says she's calculating the odds, she really is and will likely tell you what they are if you ask. Sometimes even if you don't. She also had some odd ideas about what constituted a reasonable reward for a given risk.

At least when she was younger, she loved games and would always play to win, but was gracious in defeat. She could be sweet or mischievous, and could often charm the adults into letting her get away with things she shouldn't by either her smile or her sheer precociousness.

Now she's back and there's no sign that her brilliance is dimmed any, though there might be a harder edge to it. Time will tell.

In terms of the families - well She's a Bloomquist with all the charm and luck that goes with that, even if she's a second cousin or is it third? Second once removed?

She's been gone a few years, but feel free to page me to set up what their relationship looked like before she left and whether or not they stayed in touch while she was gone.

Also feel free to start rumors about what exactly she did to get sent home.

Sheet

Brawn: Poor
+ Grip Strength (Positive)

Felicity has spent a bunch of time pulling lines on boats and holding on to things. Mostly, she's not that strong, but her hands really are.
+ Tireless (Positive)

Sometimes when she's working on something, she just doesn't sleep. Long gaming sessions, studying, whatever. She can function on way less sleep than she ought to.
Finesse: Normal
+ Flexible (Positive)

She's bendy.
Brains: Good
+ Mental Calculator (Positive)

The girl does math, complicated math, in her head and may get grumpy if asked to break down the steps for people.
- Hyperfocus (Negative)

When she's working on a problem or a puzzle trying to shift her attention to anything else may be a difficult proposition, at least until it's completed. (At least to the point where it can be left as an exercise for the reader.)
- Reckless (Negative)

She can weight risks and rewards a little oddly, sometimes. It's not that she doesn't know the risks or the odds, it's that she's decided they're worth it. Or she's miscalculated. One of the two.
Spirit: Good
+ The Die is Cast (Determination) (Positive)

Once she has made the choice to pursue a course of action, she will do what she can to succeed in it and will be difficult to dissuade. If she's doing something, she's doing it and there's no point second guessing.

Perks and Quirks

+ Area of Expertise: Games

Board games, card games, video games. She loves games. She loves playing games. She loves the rules and the strategies and the gambits and even the cheat codes. She can tell you if a game is unbalanced or broken in some way.
+ Bloomquist Trait - Lucky and Charming
+ Youthful Exuberance
+ Bloomquist Boon: Luck Manipulation
+ Found Item
- Bloomquist Taint: Curiosity
- Bloomquist Bane: Iron Allergy
- Reputation: She did what?

No one knows what she did that was bad enough to get sent back here for the last couple of months of the school year, but it has to have been *bad* to not let her finish out her senior year in San Francisco(?) Somewhere near there anyway. There are rumors flying. Caught stealing? Got pregnant? Someone claims they heard she got caught trying to set the gym on fire at her old school.
- Unreliable
