Private Investigator
 Has something terrible happened that the police haven't been able to help with? If you need answers and you're desperate, determined, and willing to believe that things might be possible that most people think are just fiction, then asking around enough might get you pointed in the direction of Mei Lee. She's picky about the clients that she'll take, but she has been able to solve a case or two that everyone else said was impossible.

 You just have to be able to get past her reluctance to take on those sorts of jobs, how picky she is about her clients, and the fact that she's more than a little unorthodox in her approach and her hours.

Friends

  • Annie: You're truly a credit to our community, and I hope at some point I can find a way to repay you for your kindness.
  • Rabbi Aaron: He gives solid advice, and I'm grateful to have him in my life. Especially since it looks like we're in for a wild ride together.
  • Master Fox: I truly can't understand how someone can be so enthusiastic about pretty much everything, but it actually helps right now.
  • Lux: The kind of person who makes sure a drunk stranger gets home safely, or one arrested first-degree felony aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

Others

  • Makoto Mori: I have a constant nagging feeling that your help is going to cost more than I want to pay, but that might just be my history speaking.

RP Hooks

Psychic Private Investigator?: For many years, Mei advertised herself as a psychic private investigator. It was on her business cards, it was on her website, and it was on her listing on Yelp. Pretty much anywhere where she was providing details about her own services, she mentioned that she was psychic. At the time it was just her being upfront, not caring if people didn't believe her, and an attempt at culling the sorts of business she got down to the things that she actually wanted to do. In hindsight, it probably wasn't the best idea.

Baby Mage: Mei just Awakened, and as such she has no idea what's going on. Maybe you want to teach her a thing or two or convince her your perspective is right before someone else gets to her.

Minor Celebrity Mei recently ended up on the news for beating the crap out of some cops at a protest, after they clubbed into unconsciousness an imam who was peacefully shielding others from their brutality. She broke at least one nose, kneed one in the groin hard enough to put him in the hospital, as well as leaving quite a few of them with no shortage of bruises in a pretty impressive display of martial arts skill that got recorded by bystanders. She took quite a beating in turn, including a bean bag round to the face. If you're either the kind of person who really hates cops or who loves the taste of boot, this might be a big deal to you.

Martial Arts: Mei's father teaches martial arts for a living, and Mei has been learning since she was a kid. She doesn't fight professionally, but she has an interest in styles other than what she's grown up with and knows some of the other practitioners in town, as well as some of the professional fighters. It's more a hobby and a form of exercise than a passion, but she has been doing it a long time, so she's certainly not bad.

Soundtrack

Phantogram - Dear God

Dear God, you save the lonely, lonely lives
I'm feelin' good, I'm feelin' fine
These days, I see too much, I ain't got time
I'm outta sight, I'm outta mind
Take me out of this world I'm living in
Tell, tell my friends 'cause I know I wanna see again

Phantogram - Let Me Down

Running, running outta days
Digging my only grave, yeah
I tried to take my break
But the demon is always angry
Ooh, it goes on and on, and now it ends
The reality's breaking me in
Don't leave me here this way
Now you're ready to let me down

Shivaree - Goodnight Moon

There's a blade by the bed
And a phone in my hand
A dog on the floor
And some cash on the nightstand
When I'm all alone the dreaming stops
And I just can't stand

Brand New - Millstone

I used to pray like God was listening.
I used to make my parents proud.
I was the glue that kept my friends together,
Now they don't talk and we don't go out.
I used to know the name of every person I'd kissed.
Now I made this bed and I can't fall asleep in it.

I:Scintilla - Swimmers Can Drown

My timeline is a wire
Wrapped tight around my neck
Slowing apathy swells,
Give in to disconnect
Unworldly transmission
Fed to relive the shame
I don't want a trial
I'll take all the blame

Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird - Freedom Is A Verb

It's a verb! It's a verb!
Freedom is a verb
Something never finished, never done
It's something you can fake
And it's something that'll break
If it ain't something that you constantly become

Nimbus

MeiNimbus1.png

Long-Term Nimbus: Lights grow slightly brighter, true darkness never seems to settle in, and everything appears more crisply defined and distinct.

Immediate Nimbus: This nimbus consists of a combination of atmospheric light phenomena that combine to look like an eye of light with Mei herself in the glowing pupil; a halo surrounds her, with glowing parhelion at arm's length to either side and tangential arcs above and below. (Tilt: +2 Composure, +2 Resolve)

Signature Nimbus: Soft halos of light surround things touched by Mei's signature nimbus, growing slowly dimmer over the duration of their effect until fading completely.
