FAMILY HISTORY: Liana and her brother had the picture-perfect country family life, save for the fact that their father is a werewolf. Their mother preached tolerance and sacrifice and basically made the family work, until she decided she was tired of it and resented their father and the whole situation. She left their father when both kids were already adults (~10 years ago on the timeline). Liana has no contact with her, but suspects her of associating with an anti-werewolf crowd. Her brother’s relationship with their mother is open. ~4 years ago, with the culture changing towards werewolves and other beings, their father decided to ‘give his kids a shot to be normal’ by cutting ties with them & laying low.
CHARACTER DETAILS: I imagine Liana & her brother were at least reasonably close growing up, but the whole divorce and Dad disappearing has put some distance into their relationship. That, and Lia works all the time. Brother had a few wild years in his 20s that would also have pushed them apart, as Lia finished school on the study-hard, work-hard track (possibly influenced by watching him struggle). I imagine lots of drinking, drugs, other shenanigans were involved. Up to the player if he still maintains those vices or not, but at some point he did get some kind of focus, since he’s now established as a pro-werewolf activist (though whether or not that’s how he makes his living is open for development).
PLOT IDEAS: I had imagined that Brother & Lia had not had a lot of contact in the last few years, so I think it would be fun to see them come back into each other’s lives, whether intentionally or unintentionally, and test each other out. It might be fun for Lia to be assigned to investigate something shady, only to discover that Brother is involved, and have them figure out what to do about that. They’re both trying to accomplish similar goals by different means, so I think at this stage they would naturally clash, so lots of potential for drama & turmoil. I’m up for ideas! :)
