[This is a casual rp starter for scenes with Jen Daring, the world's most harmless Malkavian Antitribu. It serves as a warmup spot for character ideas for the After Gehenna game.]

San Francisco was a fishing village now. Bay water lapped the bases of the surviving skyscrapers, so clear now you could see down to the shattered street. Some brave divers went for artifacts down there: jewelry, surviving tools, random items to decorate their chambers with and claim bragging rights just for surviving. An old hubcap could cost you your life now that the Farrallones and the Bay were wed in one stretch of water over the drowned city. Sharks--the main risk in the area and also the main livelihood. They might get a fisherman now and again, but most nights in the high village with its precarious catwalks, it was they who became dinner.

When the sun went down the fishing crews lowered ropes down the side of the buildings and hauled up the boats along with their catch. The hard, ugly end-of-the-day work was necessary, for one breed of shark hunted at night and could take out even the few old yachts they had left.

The grunts and creaks of the ropes and thunk and scrape of the rising boats were the first thing Jen heard when she woke that night. She opened the closet she was curled up in and spilled out, yawning hugely. The outer wall of the hotel room she was squatting in had shattered outward, and a huge, battle-scarred gray cat crouched among the bricks, messily dining on a pigeon the size of a football. He looked up at her with his one good eye and meowed conversationally.

Within half an hour they had both eaten, and Jen was sitting quietly on the edge of the cracked rooftop plaza of the hotel. Other villagers, human and otherwise, milled on the rooftop by torchlight, enjoying a barbecue out in the cool night air. The cat sat next to her, keeping watch. Jen was a little unfocused, distracted by the blobs of golden and royal blue light dancing through the air. She knew something was going to happen soon and she should be here for it, but not what.

"They're fish. They have gills, not lungs. It is suicide for it to beach itself."

Unless the shark has changed in other ways...

"What for? Aren't there better weapons out there?"

Ones that make it farther onto land.

"For? Has anyone called your friends?" Pack, she said... Vampires aren't the sort to use that word.

It's a silly word, in his opinion. He'll never have a 'pack', just a family who are so far away.

He tilts his head, just a little inhumanly.

"Not everything is divided into 'your kind' and 'humans', you know."

"I... can become a wolf." It's so much more than that, though.

"And I've seen scary, believe me." Incredible, insane things. He can hold his own.

"I've been a 'wolf' for years, believe me. I don't need help." Not with that. He came to terms with it on his own.

"Donald. My son never speaks, I'm quite used to it."

"Wolves--the real kind--have never spoken to me, I didn't say that. It must be different here." Very. Sooner or later it's going to come out he's hopped realities.

"A vote for what? To kill me or not?" Say yes and he's leaving. Now.

Heh. "Can you sum up all werewolves that way? I'll agree some are, but that's true of any group of people."

"The odds are against everyone bitten being a killer, although I suppose the ones that were could murder the ones that weren't as... bloodthirsty."

He did say bitten, not knowing he's given himself away without a doubt. Oops.

"No disclaimer necessary, I guess what you all were." By scent. "And you haven't mobbed me on sight."

On to the main question: "No. Not genetic. It was a lab experiment with me as an unwilling subject, if you're curious. I'm Donald."

He seems more awkward than upset. "As I said to Jen, it was years ago. Irrelevant and not going to happen to anyone else. I've adjusted."

"You... have nothing to worry about. I can promise you that. It didn't happen in America, for starters." Details are going to be kept to himself, thank you. It was several worlds ago he was altered.

"Besides, I have to assume none of you can catch diseases. Any sort of diseases."

In times of chaos, it's not difficult for anyone to slip into a place relatively unnoticed. Normally he wouldn't bother, would see that chaos and move in the other direction. Normally he's following no particular path, and for the most part problems that are not his problem are easily avoided.

This one is his problem. His problem is in the form of a 5'8" grey-haired man standing in the middle of a group Roland would want to keep an eye on even on a regular day. He tries to stay unnoticed as he edges closer, but it's difficult to look like a random bypasser when he can't keep his eyes off his friend and the crowd surrounding him. He finds himself sending out his mind a little, trying to feel around the edges of their thoughts to see how likely that the crowd is going to become a mob.
