Bio

Tony's tracked down low-life scum in every lousy corner of the world, but nothing was quite as bad as Innsmouth. Some creep in Boston skipped bail and tried to hide with family in the small fishing village. It turned out "family" meant vicious fish-like monstrosities that left Tony bloody and half-drowned. Ever since, he's found a new kind of dirtbag to hunt. Ordinary mobster or otherworldly monster, Tony will take it down and find someone willing to pay him for it. Now he's got a lead in Bogotá. Easy money.

Defeated Encounters

Loss of Health

Whatever hit Tony hit him hard. His doctors aren't sure if he'll ever awaken from his coma. As the closest thing he has to family, you're placed in charge of his belongings. Gain all of his possessions. You pour over his notes and receipts, looking for what he'd been hunting (Observation). If you pass, you discern a pattern to the work he'd been doing; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, you see a series of jobs for money and nothing more. Whether you pass or not, discard his Investigator token.

Loss of Sanity

You find Tony in an abandoned building, surrounded by bone chips, clumps of hair, and other grisly souvenirs. He doesn't seem to care about any of his belongings anymore. Gain all of his possessions. He's beyond all reason. All he wants to do is sell you some of his "trophies" (Influence). If you pass, he tells you the story beyond each purchase; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, he yells at you, warning you never to return or he'll put your hide up for sale. Whether you pass or not, discard his Investigator token.

Team Role

Between his Handcuffs and his special ability, it is very easy for Tony to gain clues. Coupled with his high Observation, he is very good at dispelling nasty Rumor Mythos cards.

With his high Strength, he also does a good job at fighting monsters, although a player may wish to invest in some time bulking up his Influence and Will.

A few items and skills, like the Old Journal or Skulduggery, are useful to Tony.
