    Would You Notice If Someone didn't cast a Shadow If they're limbs where just lightly to Long?
    If they had just a few too many teeth and their eyes just slightly too Besatially for comfort?
    How many time have you passed Something in the Streets and just never noticed it?
    -Deer Teeth.


    You sit in a cold, concrete room. An uncomfortable metal folding chair has been chained to the ground in front of a small metal table. A pair of fluorescent bulbs illuminate the room in a stark white light. The metal Cage around them casts shadows that give the room a slightly sinister look. There's a single solid metal door, a large Mirror along the wall opposite of your chair, and a single Camera in the corner above the door. The entire room smells like vaguely like Lemon scented Dawn.

    The door opens.

    A Dumpy middle-aged man wearing a tan blazer, slacks, and a pair of leather dress shoes sits down across from while reading a file. It has your name at the top. He is silent for a moment before he closes the file sets it down and starts speaking almost casually.

    "There are 7.7 billion beings living on Earth at this moment. Some go to school, Get Jobs, Get Married, and Die. Others Kill, Sacrifice, and Destroy until they are put down. At some point in time in the past, your Family was the Latter. Ain't that, right Girly?"

    He looks up from where he was inspecting his fingernails and sighs with exasperation.

    "Well, Anyway you're lucky we're the ones that picked you up! A lot of people out there would have tried to kill you on the spot or worse."

    He chuckles and leans back in the chair he pulls out a cigarette. The box is a light green and says Grand Prix on the side he pauses for second and then looks at you.
    "You mind?"

    -Yes.
    -No.

    "Anyway, I just read your file but, If you wouldn't mind stating for the boys at home-" he says while jerking a thumb towards the camera. "What you are?"

    Weaknesses are things that your race are particularly allergic to.

    What quest type is this? The vote choice with one choice in a majority, or the one valid choice per player (roleplay)?

    Majority Voting. Whichever option gets the most votes is what'll happen.

    Rule by cool says werewolf but they are essentially useless in modern society unless we want to be a labourer, but their weakness is also easily remedied by getting a dog for explaining most our tells by.

    Reptoid is the most powerful option out of the box but also have pretty glaring tells but can somewhat be explained or fixed by moving to a place with a tropical climate and using sun glasses (with fslse prescription ofc so you have a explanation for having them indoors.)

    [X] Race: devil-touched.
    Reasoning go as follows, devils are known for their deal making and not being tricked by illusions (false knowledge) let us make more informed choices it might also lead to more common devil powers such as pyrokinesis or making binding deals.

    Don't underestimate true sight, in a world with multiple hidden horrors about being able to pick them out efficiently and then either blackmail or "befriend" them looks like a efficient way to climb the social ladder..
