Purgatory High: Savannah White

The nickname was inevitable. S. White? Either my parents knew but didn't care, or they thought it would be cute. On the other hand, it made my aesthetic choices clear: skin white as snow, lips red as blood, hair black as ebony. So yeah, I'm a goth from birth, and I rock that look. Never helped me fit in, but I didn't much care about that. It's fun to be an intriguing outsider. I'm the weird girl, the artist, the witch - it wards off a lot of dull people and draws in the interesting ones.

How did I come to be here? Bad habits. Specifically the bad habit of hanging around in graveyards after dark. It's always the best place to sketch, in the quiet around the dead. I don't know what happened, not exactly, but someone or something jumped me. Everything was chaos and confusion and red and then nothing, until I woke up in my dorm here. Who was it? I have two theories - most likely, homophobes (my rainbow pin stands out a lot against black clothing). Most interestingly, a vampire.

If it was a homophobic vampire, I will be deeply disappointed, but I don't know that I'll ever find out.

Waking up in Purgatory was confusing, but what I'd become wasn't. I read a lot of paranormal romance, I recognise the signs. Working out exactly what kind of vampire I've become is tricky, but the basics are there. Hypnotic gaze, a dreadful thirst... there may be more that I haven't found yet. Not speed or strength, alas, and I haven't figured out how to turn into a big cat yet...

Savannah 'Snow' White, the Vampire[edit]

A character in Purgatory High

Look: Intense.

Eyes: Thirsty

Origin: Newly Reborn

Stat Block[edit]

Hot 2, Cold 1, Volatile -1, Dark -1

Darkest Self[edit]

Everyone is your pawn, your plaything. You hurt them and make them vulnerable, for sport – like a cat does with a mouse. Maybe you’ll even drain them dry, though you’ll certainly take your time first. You escape your Darkest Self when you’re put in your rightful place, by someone more powerful than you.



You can hypnotize people who have no Strings on you. Roll with Hot. On a 10 up, they do exactly what you wish and have no idea that anything is wrong. • On a 7-9, the hypnosis works, but choose one:

  • they realize exactly what you’ve done to them,
  • they fuck up your commands,
  • their sanity is unhinged.

The Feeding[edit]

You feed on hot blood, direct from the source. If this is the first time they’ve ever been fed upon, you both mark experience. When you feed, choose two:

  • you heal 1 Harm,
  • you take 1 Forward,
  • they definitely don’t die.

Sex Move[edit]

When you deny someone sexually, gain a String on them. When you have sex with someone, lose all Strings on them.

Backstory & Strings[edit]

  • I'm Beautiful. Gain a String on everyone.
  • Lottie and her gang saved my Unlife - she gets 2 Strings on me.
  • I think I can save Rowan (from getting in too deep and losing his innocence) - he gains a string on me.
  • I watched Melissa die. We have 2 strings on each other.
