Torchwood: The Rest of the Character Sheets

In the spirit of each successive series seen as a Doctor Who RPG campaign, John, Eve, Kai, Alexa and Mekhi handed in their character sheets at the close of the campaign. We'll start with John:
Stuff that didn't fit on the sheet, kept on the back...

SKILLS

*Jack has a +2 Convince Expertise in Seduction.

GOOD TRAITS

Amnesia (Minor) - Some of Jack's Time Agent memories were wiped from his mind
Attractive (Minor)
Brave (Minor)
Charming (Minor)
Cutting Edge Technology (Minor) - Torchwood agents have access to all manner of advanced alien tech
Friends (Major) - Torchwood
Psychic Training (Minor) - Like all Torchwood operatives
Run for Your Life! (Minor)
Technically Adept (Minor)
Tough (Minor)
Voice of Authority (Minor)

BAD TRAITS
Dark Secret (Major) - Behind every secret revealed is another just waiting to be revealed. Jack has had to do many horrible things in his long, long life
Eccentric/Irrepressible Flirt (Minor) - Captain Jack can't help but flirt with everything that moves, and laces his language with innuendo, double entendres and tall tales about his sexcapades
Wanted (Minor) - Torchwood has been in hiding since the 456 affair

SPECIAL TRAITS

Fast Healing - Jack recovers Attribute points at a rate of 1 point per minute (disabled for the duration of Miracle Day)
Immortal - Can heal from being killed (disabled for the duration of Miracle Day)
Time Traveller - Jack has familiarity with Tech Levels 4 and 5
Torchwood Veteran - Once per game, Jack's player may describe how the character faced a similar situation back in the day to gain the benefits of a Story Point without having to spend one.

FAVORITE METHOD FOR ACCUMULATING STORY POINTS
Guilt. Guilt. Guilt. The more difficult decisions Jack makes, the deeper into guilt he gets and the more Story Points he accumulates, so his player has become quite good at spotting what is inevitable in any given scenario and making Jack "go along" with the event, thus making him partly responsible. For a extra points, he allows the GameMaster to insert such terrible decisions in Jack's past, carrying the consequences forward to the present day as plot engines. Hey, when you've only got 4 SPs to begin with, you do what you have to do.

Eve's sheet:
Stuff that didn't fit on the sheet, kept on the back...

GOOD TRAITS
Attractive (Minor)
Brave (Minor)
Charming (Minor)
Cutting Edge Technology (Minor) - Torchwood agents have access to all manner of advanced alien tech
Empathic (Minor)
Friends (Minor) - Cardiff police
Friends (Major) - Torchwood
Inspiring Love (Minor) - Rhys Williams Anwen, her daughter
Psychic Training (Minor) - Like all Torchwood operatives
Run for Your Life! (Minor)
Stubborn (Minor)
Voice of Authority (Minor)

BAD TRAITS
Code of Conduct (Minor)
Insatiable Curiosity (Minor)
Obligation (Major) - to Torchwood AND her family
Wanted (Minor) - Torchwood has been in hiding since the 456 affair

SPECIAL TRAITS
Undying - For the duration of Miracle Day, Gwen, like all humans, cannot die. She may still suffer lethal damage, but cannot be killed by that damage and must live with the effect of those injuries.

FAVORITE METHOD FOR ACCUMULATING STORY POINTS
Gwen uses her marriage as a source of subplot strife and Story Point generation. Having an affair, missing special dinners, avoiding the "baby" discussion, dealing with the in-laws, and defending her family against the monsters of her world are all good occasions to rake in the points.

Kai's character started as an NPC, but he had to have his own sheet to keep playing.

SKILLS
*Rhys has a +2 Transport Expertise in Trucking.

GOOD TRAITS

Brave (Minor)
Charming (Minor)
Face in the Crowd (Minor)
Friends (Major) - Torchwood and local trucking companies
Inspiring Love (Minor) - Gwen Cooper
Stubborn (Minor)
Tough (Minor)

BAD TRAITS
Argumentative (Minor)
Obligation (Major) - To his family
Unadventurous (Minor)
Wanted (Minor) - Torchwood has been in hiding since the 456 affair

SPECIAL TRAITS
Undying - For the duration of Miracle Day, Rhys, like all humans, cannot die. He may still suffer lethal damage, but cannot be killed by that damage and must live with the effect of those injuries.

FAVORITE METHOD FOR ACCUMULATING STORY POINTS
Any time Rhys is treated badly by Torchwood - dismissed or marginalized, led to believe Jack is moving on his territory, given the jobs no one else wants to do - he scores Story Points. It's amazing how many that tactic generates in any given game.

Alexa's CIA analyst, the only character to actually die in the finale:

SKILLS
*Esther has a +2 Knowledge Expertise in Research and a +2 Technology Expertise in Computers.

GOOD TRAITS
Charming (Minor)
Code Breaker (Minor)
Friends (Major) - CIA

BAD TRAITS
Impulsive (Minor)
Obligation (Major) - to the CIA and to her family (including a mentally ill sister)
Unadventurous (Minor)
Wanted (Major) - framed by the Families, Esther is on the run from the CIA

SPECIAL TRAITS
Undying - For the duration of Miracle Day, Esther, like all humans, cannot die. She may still suffer lethal damage, but cannot be killed by that damage and must live with the effect of those injuries.

FAVORITE METHOD FOR ACCUMULATING STORY POINTS
With Esther, it's a question of letting fear and anxiety make decisions for her. When she lets herself get flustered - people shouting at her, urgency and danger, etc. - she tends to make mistakes, lets herself get distracted, and follow the wrong impulses. When her player does this on purpose, she scores Story Points.

And Mekhi's character:
Stuff that didn't fit on the sheet, kept on the back...

GOOD TRAITS
Brave (Minor)
Five Rounds Rapid (Major)
Friends (Major) - CIA
Indomitable (Major)
Sharpshooter (Minor)
Stubborn (Minor)
Tough (Minor)
Voice of Authority (Minor)

BAD TRAITS
Argumentative (Minor)
Impulsive (Minor)
Obligation (Major) - to the CIA
Wanted (Major) - framed by the Families, Rex is on the run from the CIA
Weakness (Minor) - Rex's heart was irreperably damaged in a car accident causing him constant pain and making cardio-intensive activities (like climbing stairs) more difficult by two difficulty levels


SPECIAL TRAITS

Fast Healing (Special) - Jack recovers Attribute points at a rate of 1 point per minute (only after Miracle Day)
Immortal (Special) - Can heal from being killed (only after Miracle Day)
Undying - For the duration of Miracle Day, Rex, like all humans, cannot die. He may still suffer lethal damage, but cannot be killed by that damage and must live with the effect of those injuries.

FAVORITE METHOD FOR ACCUMULATING STORY POINTS
Rex goes out of his way to rub people the wrong way, especially if his player thinks he'll need a favor from that person in the future. He's had to spend Story Points on the very Convince rolls he handicapped to score those points.
