Character Name: Tara Maclay
Species (human/alien/vampire/other?): human
Extra-human/abnormal abilities, if any?: Buffyverse witch


1. Is it okay for your character's thoughts to be read/their mind to be probed? Please ask first - generally fine, but she does have some basic mental self-defense, depending on how it's done.

2. Is it okay for any of your character’s intense/distressing memories to be seen/heard/read in this situation? If you get in, absolutely. I imagine Glory's leftovers, especially, would be hard to miss in the case of mind-probing.

3. What kind of mind does your character have? Are they disturbed at all? Are their thoughts ordered or jumbled? Her mind is mostly serene, but there are old scars, both from her mind being undone by a goddess (...yeah) and more mundane but much longer-standing emotional abuse.

4. Is it okay for your character’s emotions to be sensed? yes

5. Does your character have a weak or strong mind? Are they susceptible to influence or hypnotism? moderately strong - weakened a little by the Glory thing, most likely, but she's stronger willed than she looks

6. Does your character have supernatural/mental fortification against mind-reading or telepathic communication? mild, low-level shields

7. In the case of characters who are extra-sentient/psychic and can just 'know' things about people, can the muns of these characters use the powers of Wikipedia to get information about your character? yes

8. If so, is there anything that should absolutely never ever be brought up? not anymore

9. Anything that should absolutely be brought up? nothing in particular

10. Will thoughts in the narration be up for grabs? If so, how will you indicate these? Italics/strikes/something else? If it's established things can be read/known, anything in the tag is game.

11. Does your character have any fears/phobias that you wouldn't mind being exploited? Ones that you'd like to NOT be exploited? Nothing in particular, though people messing with other people's minds is a huge hot button for her


1. Is it okay for your character to be affected by chemical agents? Fear toxins, for example? yes

2. Does your character have any unique biological difference that would affect their resistance to toxins/chemical substances? nope

3. Does your character have any notable genetic/supernatural/biological difference that would make their blood in any way different to a regular baseline human's (that would make them taste different if they were fed on by a vampire, for example)? nope


1. How okay are you with your character coming to physical harm? usually fine - if it's something that can't be healed within a few days/with bedrest, please check

2. How okay are you with your character's home/possessions being targeted by bad guys? totally fine

3. Can your character be impacted by telekinesis? yes, but depending on how it's done, she might be able to counter

4. With regard to vampires, would your character be willing to be a donor? probably not - if Spike was in danger and asked her, maybe

5. If no, then how about unwilling? yes

6. With regard to shapeshifters, are you okay with having those with this power taking the shape of your character? yes

7. If your character has any superhuman abilities, would you be okay with these being replicated by those who have the power to absorb/take on the powers of others? yes

8. In a physical confrontation, is it okay if characters who have the power to sense/foresee/predict movements use this to their advantage against your character? yes

9. Are you willing to participate in plots where your character will sustain damage outside of a fight, such as in situations with torture, environmental hazards, or accidents? usually - check with me, please, but generally yes

10. Is there anything about them that would stand out noticeably (things like scars, physical augmentations, illness, anomalies, etc.) if they were ever injured or otherwise examined by a doctor? Are any of these things noticeable to others without close inspection? some scars here and there, but nothing really notable


1. Can your character be influenced and tempted by magical or supernatural means? probably - she might be able to resist some types, so check

2. If yes, will someone with the ability be able to find this out about them, and in what areas (think the seven deadly sins) can your character be tempted? Tara is most prone to self-doubt and withdrawing from those who care about her. If someone were to tempt her, it would tend to be to lure her back into self-doubt and passivity, more than into beinig actively evil.

3. Could your character be glamoured (a form of mind control employed by vampires to make humans compliant/alter their memories etc.)? yes

4. Can your character be effected by spells of any kind, and are there any specific types to which they would be immune? no natural immunity, but she does have the ability to actively counterspell sometimes

5. Can your character's presence be sensed by characters with the power to read auras/pick up generalized vibes from people? yes

6. If yes, what kind of stand-out things about your character can be sensed? she's generally a calm, strong presence, but the lingering psychic damage is probably visible

7. With regard to characters that can sense danger/receive visions/predict general doom, are you okay with your character being the subject of any of this, if the occasion arises? yes


1. Will your character change their name as it is shown on the map? If so, what will they change it to? No, she'll leave hers alone

2. If they’re able, will they ever opt to hide their location on the map? Probably not. If she's activelty hiding from the Master, down the line, but unlikely.

3. If your character is from an earlier point in their canon than another member of your cast, what is and is not okay for your fellow castmate to spill the beans about regarding your character’s future? Tara's had the beans spilled for her, so anything is game.

4. With regard to characters that like to snoop, can they find anything that's been publicly said by your character through the tablets? most likely, yes

5. How about privately? please check with me ooc, but it's probably fine

6. Is there anything you'd especially like to be known about your character, for the purposes of amusement? not particularly

7. Anything you especially don't? nope

8 Do you like threadhopping (a character not already in a thread jumping in unexpectedly to reply to a comment), and are you okay with other people threadhopping in your threads and posts? threadhopping is totally okay - backtagging is also great, and I never ever mind it
