They are my people:
• Is there anywhere that the supernatural environment is being affected?
Last, but not least, the Changeling always has the temptation to ask one other question, which may not directly benefit the current mystery.
• What do you know about me?
If the character gains any useful knowledge of himself from the locals, he can mark one experience. Note that these minor spirits often have limited or unusual perspectives and thus might not give as complete an answer as a human with the same information would.
Details: Charly's father was also a police officer and making him proud was a driving motivation for her joining in the first place. Their relationship was already strained before that fateful night she was attacked and her powers awoke. Since that night, her father considers her dead and has nothing more to do with her. The rest of her family lives out of state and barely had any contact with her even before she started changing.
RECOMMENDATION: Close observation and study.
A call had come in about a body lying on the steps leading up to the pulpit of an old church. The victim, a pastor who'd been rumored to have not been as good as an example as he ought, had been dead long before the police had arrived. The cause of death seemed obvious, a slit on his throat that went from ear to ear, but there was curiously little blood to be found either in him or on the ground. The evidence from the sanctuary had been gathered by the time the warrant to search the man's office had been granted.
That was where it all went wrong.
Henderson was first. His gun wasn't even a quarter way out of its holster when something fast and impossibly strong latched onto his neck and drained him of blood as Charly and the other investigator, Sanchez, looked on in stunned horror. Red eyes looked up at them even as Henderson went limp.
Sanchez was quicker on the draw. He'd been on the force for over a decade, and his training and experience allowed him to get off two shots before a blur of shadow shattered his arms and broke his neck.
Charly was not far behind. She was already making for the door to put distance between her and this monster and to possibly limit its angles of approach to just one. It was a good plan, a sound plan even, but her shot was nowhere quick enough to catch the monster before it had pulled the gun from her hand. Red eyes locked onto blue and held Charly in place while the monster verbally toyed with her and pulled her collar low to get at her neck.
As it took its first sip of her blood, something flared to terrible, ferocious life inside of Charly. There was an explosion and a flash that burned out the cameras before the arcing lightning could get to them. The monster was gone, and Charly was left alone and shaken by what had happened. As she got to her feet, she saw herself in a cracked mirror. Her eyes were now blood-red and her skin deathly-pale.
Whatever she had become, she was no longer human.
She favors comfortable clothes like t-shirts and jeans. She prefers a sturdy pair of boots over sneakers, though. When the weather turns cold enough, she is always wearing her great-grandfather's leather bomber jacket, which has seen some repairs and a full restoration since the 40s. Lately, she's been dressing in warmer clothes, even when things are very warm.
They first explained to you that you weren't human. Ask them how they realized and tell them how you reacted.
So, Charly was originally going to be a straight up Vampire and then after going with the Changeling Playbook, she morphed into one of the Tuatha de Dannan partially awakened by turning into a vampire. The vampire bit is obvious, the fact that she's a demigod that hasn't fully awakened yet not so much. So far she's just a highly unusual vampire that isn't driven almost insane by thirst and hunger and has lightning powers. This could pretty much be anyone who's in the know.
You suspect that they know more about your heritage than they are telling.
They tried to slay you, but eventually decided you were innocent or at least not evil. Ask them what convinced them.
You see them as your anchor to humanity. Ask them if they're a stable choice or not.
They treat you as bait to bring in bigger prey. This may be a facade, ask them what their true feelings are.
They claim you and your kind are part of their destiny. Tell them what your reaction to that is.
They see you as a protege to train for hunting. Ask them how persistent they are in this agenda.
One of you saved the other's life once before. Tell them which of you saved whose life. Ask them what the details were.
