Why is her head so big... by leonaheidern Why is her head so big... by leonaheidern
I know, I'm not good giving a title to my pictures... But the title reflects a lot what I think of this picture. It could be a great one if I hadn't drawn her with such a HUGE head.

I know too that you might be sick of seeing goth girls in the World of Darkness and that dark doesn't mean goth... but Chiara is a goth, and I'll draw her as a goth.

Actually, when I created her I had not thought of her being a goth. She was just that calm, introverted and utterly weird Philodox. Then I thought of making her a goth as some kind of joke, because too many people seem to play a goth in WoD games... In all of them but Werewolf! Now I'm glad I've given her this image, because I love it. Nobody would think that she belongs to the tribe of Children of Gaia, I guess, but then she was born in a Black Spiral hive, raised to keep the Dark Litany and then rescued and re-educated to be a Gaian Philodox. You wouldn't be an archetypical Garou after that, I tell you XD

As you might imagine (or not), she's a metis. Although she doesn't have any visible deformities, she is far from being sane. She works hard to keep herself from losing her mind, but too often for her own good, she suffers from madness attacks, which might have any kind of effects on her. Just as something curious, when she suffers from one attack, I choose randomly one of the 12 Wyrm impulses and make her suffer something related to it: dellusions for Pseulak, paranoia for Sykora, etc.

Blah, I've already written too much. I tend to divagate.

I hope you like it (But WHY IS HER HEAD SO BIG???)

hang on hang on


we started playing WTA 2 or 3 weeks ago. this is mine. When I saw yours I was like "F***in for real?"

Hahaha, what a coincidence! I think I have more pictures of her in my gallery.
Chiara is one of my most old characters and also one of my favorite ones. She's been through so much.
I think your character really looks cool. The only big difference I find is that yours is wearing trousers, and Chiara wouldn't because she thinks they are unconfortable (as she is a metis and was raised in her crinos form and with no clothes). Aside from that, they are really similar. Might they be cousins? XD

you never know Xp

the GM/Storyteller just sprang the weirdest thing on us a few games ago.

He's kinda been droping these semi sublte hints that I only recently figured out, since im new at WTA.

First time I shifted, he told everyone that my fur is a luminescent white.

My C.O.G. found this old tree with cave drawing in it, there were black and white wolves fighting, the black began to outnumber the white.

one night as a was looking around the sept/cairn I over heard the sept leader and rites master saying "she's a White Howler, she has all the marking"

when I did some OOC research on White howlers, I realized any wta vet would kill to get that status XP

Head looks fine to me! (You could always say it's another metis deformity)

I really like this. As a player of Garou myself, and as the player of a former metis, I like anyone who plays them, especially if they have as much artistic talent as you obviously do.

Great work.

Thanks a lot ^^

And I also love metis. I think they have a lot of roleplaying opportunities.

Best darned characters in the game in my opinion. I managed to pull off being Alpha Metis in my home sept for two years before Padraig died....and nobody ever found out! *Woot* Metis Pride! *LOL*
