Background Story
  • Where were you born & what follows from that?
  • Who are/were your parents & what follows from that?
  • Are your parents still alive & what follows from that?
  • What was the first time you knew the supernatural existed & what follows from that?
  • Why did you leave Home & what follows from that?
  • What did you leave behind & what follows from that?
  • What do you want & what follows from that?
Aurelio was the third born child of seven children in a typically large and poor family from just outside the city of Mantua, Italy. The second oldest brother died of whopping cough at an early age leaving Aurelio & his older brother the shepherds of the crowd of kids. Growing up in a poor, rural community, but able to witness the artistic beauty funded by the Medici in ages past in the villas of the city proper, he truly had a grasp of just how desperately poor his family was. Mother was, of course, a capable manager of the meager resources father and us children could bring into the household from our agricultural work. Father was killed at the battle of Selz along the Italian/Austro-Hungarian frontier in July 1915, leaving Aurelio the "man" of the household. Ari gave up formal schooling and worked every back-breaking, muscle-building job he could manage to keep his family fed. His mother survives to this day, still maintaining the small family farm and raising Aurelio's two youngest siblings with her new husband, the kindly widower from a few farmsteads away whose piety made even Ari's own devoutly Catholic mother seem a church-dodging agnostic. Their growing age doesn't compliment their growing years, so it was understood that when Ari left for America that he would do what he could financially to help his remaining siblings and mother.

His mother said he was name after the Saint Aurelius of Carthage as she hoped that he would grow to be learned & wise. St. Aurelius of Cartago was noted as a vigorous foe of the heresies of his era. Ari can't say that he's lived up to his mother's hopes, but he has never been one to back down from a fight against evil. Neither himself or his parents have had any brush with the supernatural beyond the divine words of the Lord and the practices of His ministers in His house, but his grandparents (long deceased) used to whisper about his great-grandmother having "nearly the nearly divine power" of prophesy & divination. She, of course, kept mention of such from the mouths of as many as possible; no one wants to be suspected as a practitioner of stregheria. He's always known the supernatural existed as a basic article of faith. If there's a God, and there certainly is, then surely there are His angels, and His fallen angels, and all of Lucifer's kin & kindred. That he might have to punch one in the face as a good Catholic might surprise him, but not that such evil incarnate must exist. As such, he takes talk of such seriously, and does not dismiss reports of demons and devilry out of hand though he does know that man, too, is wicked and capable of despicable deception.

Aurelio left the farm outside Mantua for work in city at times even before his father died, but shortly after his loss he began to travel farther for better paying labor opportunities. Eventually, he came across a prize fight opportunity in Brescia and leapt at it. He was a very big, strong fellow, and the prize offered was three times what he'd make in a week clearing debris or hauling bags of cement. He won and sent most of it home to his father in-law, knowing how his mother would feel about such "blood money." While deeply religious, his father in-law had a practical streak and not-so-secretly loved the art of pugilism. He began to fight more frequently than he worked in labor, and soon there came an offer to fight in America for *real* money. There was no way he could turn down the offer, so his last fight's earnings paid for his & his older brother's boat ride to New York City in America. After a series of prize fights, Ari began to develop a reputation for being a "knockout artist." His tremendous strength & quick fists often bringing a quick end to fights against opponents who relied on strength & endurance like himself. He earned an opportunity at the Heavyweight Championship--a fight against the world-famous Jack Johnson! He trained for weeks building strength and endurance to beat the smaller man, but Johnson's incredible skill prevailed. Ari only landed two blows (each of which lifted Johnson bodily from the canvas, much to the delight of the commentators) to Johnson's *scores,* and eventually Ari was knocked out cold. His natural athleticism & freakish strength couldn't match the man's superior skills & agility.

Shortly after this loss, tragedy struck. His older brother & his wife died in an accident, and Aurelio became the guardian of his niece. While he left home and family behind, he still has responsibilities to both no matter where he goes. Ari wants to bring glory to the gift the Lord has bestowed upon him, make his mother comfortable in her old age, and provide for the care of his younger siblings and now his niece. He's never been a man of great means, and he's never had time to pursue a life, especially a romantic life, of his own due to his familial obligations. Perhaps if he can do right by the Lord, he'll win his favor and financial security will follow. For now, he tries to raise his...damaged niece as best he can while refining his skills so he can one day pursue a life for his own ends as well as for others.

Special Bonus: Add a +I0% bonus to any one Physical or Rogue skill. May be added to an Occupational or Elective skill.

Advantages: Win enough competitions and the character can take it easy or spend time on other interests (like paranormal investigation). May compete only when money is needed or the event is fun, challenging or a sure win (at least in the character's opinion). Some events may be seasonal or regional. Likely to travel across the country and perhaps even the world to compete. The excitement of battle, travel, fame (within that sport's circuit) and, with a little luck, money.

Disadvantages: Must find time to practice his craft, stay in shape, and compete in events. Must have the money, necessary equipment, and transportation to get to the competitions. And an injury doing other things outside of competition could prevent the character from competing, or knock him off his game for weeks or months of competitions, which could result in reduced income to no money for that entire quarter!

Pay: Depends on how good the character is or how lucky he's been. Prize money ranges, on average, from $10,000-$100,000 for first place, $5,000-$20,000 for second, $2,000 to 5,000 for third, and that's it. Without actually having to role-play through each and every event (boring for the rest of the players, though a tournament can make a fun and different background setting for an adventure), roll on the following table to randomly determine how much the character has won every three months. The roll is made every quarter, but the character has probably participated in 8-20 competitions during that time.

Earnings for One Quarter (3 months) of Competition:
  • 01-25% 2D6 x $1,000; lean times.
    26-50% 3D 6x $1,000 +$6,000; holding his own.
    51-60% 5D6 x $1,000 +$10,000; doing well.
    61-90% I D6 x $10,000 +$14,000; doing great.
    91-00% 2D6 x $10,000 +$24,000; outstanding performance! Could take the rest of the year off if he wants, but he's on a roll.
