Growing up Rowena was always more her Fathers daughter then her Mothers. She showed only limited interest in the lessons considered appropriate for her sex and class, preferring to spend most of her time outside. The only traditional lessons she really took to involved playing the Violin, which she has always greatly enjoyed. Unlike her Mother, Father always indulged her in this,
Her Father, Sir Richard Sutton, died in October of 1878. Wracked with grief, Rowena shunned the London Scene and spent several months at home in Benham Park. During this time she was tormented by visions of her father, always seeing him out of the corner of her eye and and hearing his voice in the distance.
- Rowena is prone to bouts of illness, despite seemingly to be in perfect health most of the time. I wonder what habits she indulges in.
- Virtue: Righteous: Regain Willpower when your character’s refusal to let injustice go unopposed puts her in danger.
- Vice: Hasty: Regain a point of Willpower when your character forces a scene to start by taking decisive action.
- Prove herself in Battle.
- Resolve the situation with my Fathers Ghost at Benham Park.
- Find Independence from her Family.
- Defeat in combat a chauvinist who has laughed at her. -Player/PC
- Of Fogs and Miasmas -
- Take one dot in the Trained Observer Merit. Your paranoia and fear of the mists has made you exceedingly wary and alert in general.
- When you are subject to thick fogs and mists, you immediately take the Shaken Condition.
- When the fog rolls in, Rowena stays indoors as much as possible. She can often be seen staring out her window at the Fog, studying it with her magics and Mage Sight. If she must go out on fog bound days she is more likely to take a coach, despite her normal preference for walking.

- FS: Light Weapons 3
- Rapidity (•): You can sacrifice your character’s weapon damage rating to add her Weaponry score to her Initiative for the turn. The weapon becomes a zero damage weapon for the turn.
- Thrust (••): At any time, you can sacrifice points of Defense one-for-one to add to attack pools. This cannot happen if you’ve already used Defense in the same turn. If you use this maneuver, you may not sacrifice your full Defense for any other reason. For example, you cannot use Thrust with an all-out attack.
- Feint (•••): With a flourish in one direction, your character can distract an opponent for a cleaner, more effective follow-up strike. For example, if Feinting with a two damage weapon with three successes, the attack causes no damage. However, your next attack ignores five points of Defense, and causes three extra points of damage.
