Amanda decided to join in the fun last night and make up a character despite the fact that she's not going to be around for long. It shouldn't be hard to write her out of the game given the way the background works (characters can be reassigned to other groups quite easily) and how dangerous the game can be and how Amanda's characters have delusions of invunerability.
Ian is playing a Skimmer (person who can step out of their bodies and walk as a spirit) Poltergeist (can hurl things around as a spirit. He was a stuntman before coming to work for Orpheus.
Dan is a ghost (a regular spirit) Haunter (possesses things and places and can manipulate them). He was a car mechanic with a penchant for practical jokes, not a good thing in a garage.
Matt is a Skimmer Wisp (affects emotions and moods of people around him. He was a pretty radical up and coming politician until a few assassination attempts made him reconsider.
Amanda is a Sleeper (someone who is cryogenically frozen for reasons of untreatable illness or injury but can leave their bodies and act as ghosts) Skinwalker (possesses people). Her character is a former firefighter.
Tonight is the first game, I'm not certain what it'll be but I'm thinking it'll be the last bit of their basic training, some field work. I'll send an NPC with them to watch over them as they go through a mission - it'll increase their survivability and get them (and me) used to the system pretty quickly.
