I always thought that some of the best opportunities for toe-curling, flesh-crawling Creepy can come from good, or at least neutral, characters.
I played a Dirge Bard once (and nothing wholesome can ever come from Dirge Bard. Nothing) who was a recently reformed follower of Menxyr. As you do.
Having fallen in with a group of Pharasmarites and determined to get away from her questionable past now she had seen the error of her ways, she over-compensated in a big way.
Dressing in bright and cheerful colours, disregarding personal space and greeting everyone she met with a nasal "Hey, -friend-", I made sure that each and every sentence she spoke was dripping with sleaze, obsequisousness and smarmy compliments.
She liked to give people Great Big Hugs.
For me, the best kind of unsettling effect a character can have is when the party waits and waits and waits for the inevitable betreyal... and it never comes.
