Perks:

Sexy: 2 Points. You've got it, and you know how to use it. You must have an appearance of at least three to take this. You are at a -1 difficulty in any rolls that have to do with seduction, or sex in general.

Perfect balance: 1 Point. You walk like a cat. You are at -1 difficulty to any rolls involving balance.

Hooks:

Pacifist: 5 points. You absolutely despise fighting. You must make a willpower roll difficulty 8 in order to take a violent action of any kind, or be overcome by your conscience.

Honest to a fault: 2 Points. You have a real hard time telling anything BUT the truth, and are at +2 difficultly to lie to people.

Marked: 3 Points. Gabriel is only on Pinaria's side to the extent that the former needs the latter alive and partially cooperative. Gabriel has its own plans for Pinaria. Even further, there's an entity (one could call it a deity without being significantly inaccurate) that does not want Gabriel to succeed too easily in its goals.

Description:

Image. 5'7", dressed in a bright blue gown and shawl, with granulated gold jewelry. While people can understand her when she speaks due to House fuckery, she speaks in Etruscan, which does not sound like any other language. It bears only the most distant relation to Latin.

Background:

Pinaria1 was born in the Etruscan city of Arretium in 630 BCE to a noble family. Unfortunately, droughts wiped out the fields from which her family drew her wealth, and misbehavior on the part of her parents resulted in the clan's expulsion from high society. Intelligent, but socially unfit for marriage and not exactly employable, Pinaria resigned herself to being a dancer in the Etruscan equivalent of a theater. She managed to build a reasonably good living, renting a room in an out-of-the-way area.

Meanwhile… an entity brooded. It had plans. Really nebulous plans that are often accompanied by dark, atmospheric music. Not exactly evil plans or anything, but whatever. It needed bodies for this. It could inhabit the minds of receptive individuals and use them as a base from which it could broadcast to other individuals, while retaining significant control over the vision of the one it inhabited. If it really wanted to exert its influence, it could fully possess an individual, moving from speaking to their mind to controlling their body, from controlling their perceptions to manipulating perceptions of the world around it.

Pinaria, along with maybe 80 others scattered throughout Etruscan society, were the ones it decided to instill itself in and manipulate. It called itself Gabriel, a name it had previously given to some Jewish mystic some time ago.

Prior to entering the House, Pinaria had lived roughly a month with the new voice in her head. They were… at odds, to put it lightly. They were capable of working together when it suited their own ends. Unfortunately for both of them, an entity above even Gabriel did not care for Gabriel's plans, and punished it by banishing most of its puppets from this world. They were scattered throughout the universes. Pinaria, ripping a "copy" of Gabriel with her, was deposited into the House.
