Description
Good Time Management Your character has vast experience managing complex tasks, keeping schedules, and meeting deadlines. When taking an extended action, halve the time required between rolls.
Patient Your character knows how to pace herself and take the time to do the job right the first time. When taking an extended action, you may make two additional rolls above what your Attribute + Skill would allow.
Professional Training ●●●●● Your character has extensive training in a particular profession, which offers distinct advantages in a handful of fields. When choosing this Merit, choose or create a Profession for your character. Mark the two Asset Skills on your character sheet. The advantages of Professional Training relate directly to those Asset Skills.

Asset Skills: Crafts, Athletics, & Academics

Networking: At the first level of Professional Training, your character builds connections within her chosen field. Take two dots of Contacts relating to that field.

Continuing Education: With repeated efforts in her field of choice, your character tends toward greater successes. When making a roll with her Asset Skills, she benefits from the 9-again quality.

Breadth of Knowledge: Due to advancement in her field, she’s picked up a number of particular bits of information and skill unique to her work. Choose a third Asset Skill and take two Specialties in your character’s Asset Skills.

On the Job Training: With the resources at her disposal, your character has access to
extensive educational tools and mentorship available. Take a Skill dot in an Asset Skill. Whenever you purchase a new Asset Skill dot, gain 1 xp.

The Routine: With such extensive experience in her field, her Asset Skills have been honed to a fine edge and she’s almost guaranteed at least a marginal success. Before rolling, spend a Willpower point to apply the rote action quality to an Asset Skill. This allows you to reroll all the failed dice on the first roll.
Fleet of Foot Your character is remarkably quick and runs far faster than her frame suggests. She gains +1 Speed per dot; anyone pursuing her suffers a –1 per dot to any foot chase rolls.
Parkour ●●● Flow: Your character reacts instinctively to any obstacles with leaps, jumps, and scaling techniques. When in a foot chase, subtract your Parkour from the successes needed to pursue or evade. Ignore environmental penalties to Athletics rolls equal to your Parkour rating.

Cat Leap: Your character falls with outstanding grace. When using a Dexterity + Athletics roll to mitigate damage from falling (see the World of Darkness Rulebook, p. 179), your character gains one automatic success. Additionally, add your Parkour rating to the threshold of damage that can be removed through this roll. Parkour will not mitigate damage from a terminal velocity fall.

Wall Run: When climbing, your character can run upward for some distance before having to traditionally climb. Without rolling, your character scaled 10 feet + five feet per dot of Athletics as an instant action, rather than the normal 10 feet.
Resources Every item has an Availability rating. Once per chapter, your character can procure an item at her Resources level or lower without issue. An item one Availability level above her Resources reduces her effective Resources by one dot for a full month, since she has to rapidly liquidate funds.
Contacts ●● (From Professional Training) Garnering information via Contacts requires a Manipulation + Social Skill roll, depending on the method the character uses.

Bio:

Music List – So, I had fun coming up with Mickey’s playlist. I had three criteria in mind as I made it: 1.) it had to represent an aspect of Mickey’s personality or life, 2.) it had to be “world of darkness”-y, and 3.) Mickey would enjoy listening to the song.

In no particular order —

Of Monsters and Men – Your Bones
Janelle Monae – Cold War
The Cardigans – Starter
Portugal. The Man – Modern Jesus
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – Dark Water

Generally, Mickey hates country music, but these songs have resonance with her because they remind her of her father.

Jim Croce – I Got a Name
Eddie Rabbit – Driving My Life Away
Jerry Reed – East Bound and Down
