Hey Guys this a remake of an old character of mine. It was and is a Chaos Magic concept, and I wanted  to see what it would look like in 5th, comment, criticism, and suggestions welcome.   

Street Name- Helios
Concept- Wiz Ganger trying to make good
Priorities- A Attributes- B Magician - C Skills- D Resources- E Human(1)

Helios doesn't recall the name his mother called him, when she woke him in the mornings before school. She was always exhausted during those times, just coming in off the night shift. His never met his father, or any other family. On some level he knows there were many good times back in that tiny apartment, the unconditional love of a mother. But when she was killed on his ninth birthday she was just an innocent victim caught in drive-by, the boy stopped wanting to remember. He would certainly have disappeared into the system, but he slipped out when a social worker came to collect him up. He awakened both magically and to reality on the streets. Though he got lucky, and was found and saved by Hecate, she was the number two in the Titans Wiz Gang. The Gang gave him everything he had ever wanted, family, food, shelter, identity and a even a new name. Everything a lost boy needed. They helped developed his talent, inducting him into a tradition, teaching him spells, and he paid them back working first as a runner and later as an enforcer. But after Chronos the gang’s leader died in a gang war, Hecate told Helios she wanted him to get out. Told him to find a new way, but leaving that life is easier said then done.

Having active foci with a total rating over your Magic rating can lead to focus addiction, and with your current foci, having even two of them active at the same time will do this.  Check with your GM.  If he thinks focus addiction is lame (like me), then you're good.  Otherwise, you might want to change your foci around, because the addiction rules can be nasty.

Updated- After careful consideration, I swapped out Criminal b/c, I liked spirit bane better, and its easier for it to come up without messing up the whole team.
Think that's to cheesy?

Also Added Reagents to the Equipment list.

Also magic 5, still not sure about it. Do you think its too low? I don't know my min/max instinct rebels.

I like the guy. Only two changes i'd make. Free up 4 karma somewhere and buy him two skills at lvl 1. Computer, cause he lives in the modern world and understands how it works. Con, because he's a professional criminal who should be able to tell basic lies without giggling.

After a few sessions, the first thing you'll need to raise with him is edge, cause 2 is kinda rough, but FAR better than one.

All in all, this guy is cool.

That's easy enough, I'll drop the force 4 to force 2, it'll lower his init, but it will free up a fair amount of resource i can put else where.

Ok well that takes him out of foci addiction land, as long as he only keeps one of the force three's active at a time, and computers one does really fit the chaos magic concept better as well.

Quick question. What cost are you using for personalized grip for your weapon focus. Been looking for a price  but can't find one. Thanks!
