Mean streets.jpg
The World is a Drama, Staged in a Dream

“Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He will take no man’s money dishonestly and no man’s insolence without a due and dispassionate revenge. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man. The story is this man’s adventure in search of a hidden truth, and it would be no adventure if it did not happen to a man fit for adventure. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in.” ~ Raymond Chandler


xxxxxAjit Singh is a Private Investigator. And, as a mortal in the World of Darkness, that often means he's a professional target for things he doesn't understand. Despite that he's managed to survive, and occasionally even win small victories against the nasty things that lurk in the hearts of men. Also, he spends most of his time drinking crappy coffee while trying to get pictures of husbands having stupid affairs with their secretaries, so don't buy his act when he tries to feed you a Raymond Chandler quote about the nobility of being a PI.

RP Hooks
Private Investigator
Spouse a cheater? Relative vanished and the cops can't help? Need a fall guy to go in and cluelessly ask a bunch of questions to a bunch of really bad monsters so you can rob them while they eat him? Call me!
Ex-Cop, Ex-Boston
Ajit was police in Boston for several years, and then a PI when he was kicked off the force. The official reason for his leaving the force was corruption, but a few folks in the city know that it was because he wasn't corrupt enough to look the other way. After that he worked with a well known PI firm for a few years, and then both he and two of the firm's senior partners all left the city suddenly and without explanation about six months ago.
Unseen Sense
Ajit gets an itching on his thumb whenever something wicked this way comes. He's particularly good at getting twitchy whenever a demon, possessed, or other nasty crawls into the room.
Sikh.... kinda
Ajit is "culturally" a Sikh. Which means he grew up Sikh, in a Sikh household and still holds many tenants of the religion dear to his heart. But he's a terrible Sikh. I mean, just look at his hair! However, he's always got an open hand for other Sikhs and is always willing to talk religion with just about anyone.
Law and Order... ish
Ajit is a licensed PI, a former cop, and has a degree in Criminology. He's willing to work with, hang with, and generally respect other cops. Trust, though, trusting cops is a different thing....
My Mom is the South Asian Han Solo
Ajit's mom is, or was, a notorious smuggler. She worked with the Italians, the Russians, the Tamils, and other groups most folks have never heard of. And despite the fact that Ajit tries to walk the path of the angels, the truth is he still knows people his mother knows, and sometimes her debts come calling.
RP Notes

“You know my method. It is founded upon the observation of trifles.” ~ Arthur Conan Doyle

xxxxxAs a note about something that comes up when dealing with an investigative mortal PC: I like to work with other players to set up interesting situations for our characters to interact. I'm not generally interested in adversarial play against other players. My goal with this character isn't to compromise other PCs, drag out secrets you don't want dragged out, etc. I like to "play to lose" a lot of the time -- to tell stories about mortal bravery in the face of the supernatural where "victory" for the mortal is surviving and maybe learning some small new bit of information or secret about their world. This also doesn't mean I play to be a chump, or to throw my character under the bus. I do like to be able to put him in positions where he can actually get some concessions before he inevitably is defeated by the vast and shadowy forces of the world.

xxxxxAll of which means that if you want someone to put some pressure on you IC, but don't want someone to be a dick OOC, give me a ring.

About them.
About them.
About them.

Dire Straits ~ Private Investigations
It's a mystery to me, the game commences
For the usual fee, plus expenses
Confidential information, it's a diary
This is my investigation, it's not a public inquiry
I go checking out the reports, digging up the dirt
You get to meet all sorts in this line of work
Treachery and treason, there's always an excuse for it
And when I find the reason I still can't get used to it
