Flavor Text


"Relax, tough guy. I'll handle this. You stand over there and look pretty."


Daniela has never been one to sweat the small stuff. Everything seems big today will be small tomorrow, and it's the little things in life - fast cars, pretty girls, and home-cooked meals - that make it worth living anyway. But that was before. One night, a strange noise prompted her to leave a glass of water behind the door to catch evil spirits like her mama always said - a glass of water that, in the morning, she found shattered into a thousand pieces. Something is going on, and she is going to find out what.

Defeated Encounters

Loss of Health

Daniela nervously agrees to meet with you, and you can tell she is a different person now. She jumps at the slightest of noises, and wants nothing to do with you or her previous life. Gain all of her possessions. You try to get her to tell you what happened (Influence). If you pass, she manages to relay the story to you before asking you to never contact her again; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, she breaks down into wordless sobs and refuses to speak with you. Whether you pass or not, discard her Investigator token.

Loss of Sanity

Daniela has covered her apartment with a myriad of superstitious trinkets. She hardly seems to care about her previous life. Gain all of her possessions. Your placating words set her into a frenzy, and she attacks (Strength). If you pass, you block her punches long enough for her to return to a lucid state and she tells you about what happened to her; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, you flee into the street and she slams the door behind you, sliding the lock shut. Whether you pass or not, discard her Investigator token.

Team Role

Daniela's high Strength and Will make her well suited for Combat Encounters. Her abilities to let her get Resources allow her to gain useful assets. She can change Resources to clues in a way similar to Tony Morgan Tony Morgan, making her useful to accumulating Clues for Rumors or Mysteries that requires a lot of Clues at once.
