This is Cormac, my character in our current Changeling the Dreaming campaign that just started. The campaign setting is a nwod version of the city we live in, Curitiba (a pretty glamorous city by the way).
My character is the seelie boggan Cormac, currently a wilder and squire to House Gwydion. Cormac is a bit different from other Boggans in that he has a strong martial bent. In fact since he has Rememberance (allowing him to remember a little from his previous incarnations and from the immortal life of his fey self), he knows that he was originally a scottish clan warden, a kind of household god that took care of the clan both in peace and during warfare, know for his mighty bellow, immense strenght and delicious mead.
He was born Vinicius, a short and fat kid with absolute no social skills (not that he doesn't -try- to be nice, on the contrary, it's just that no one likes it anyway), with awkward laughter and musical taste, and a love to stay at home, cook, knit and helping out people. Or as others would say: a wimp. He even carries around the nickname "Vina", a slang for hot dog sausage here in our parts, because he is soft, round and short.
His Chrysalis was triggered by the times bullies went too far, awakening the mighty (if short) Cormac from slumber and making Vina beat them into submission. Once that happened Cormac was awakening, and the Chrysalis would be complete in some months.
His chrysalis was a blessing and not traumatic at all. Suddenly everything fell in place and the world made sense. His appearance, awkwardness, his love for "wimpy" things, all explained by his boggan nature, and even that mighty righteous rage when bad things happened to good people were part of the warrior that Cormac is.
Since then (or maybe because of his puberty striking in at the same time...) he is much more confident and happy. He helps three times more, bakes his cookies that he sells at school twice as good, knits three times as fast, helps as handyman in the building he lives in, and still have time to his duties at court. He is still awkward, nerdy and socially inepet ("and now talks as if he was in a renaiscence fair, such a dork" as other kids would say), but at least he isn't a "wimp" that hates himself anymore. In the last year he even had his growth spur and grew up 9cm, reaching "amazing" 1,52m!
In the fey society he is training to be a knight, sworn to House Gwydion, and while a commoner he is firmly on the side that nobles should rule because they were made for that; it's the natural order. (of course people may point out that boggans weren't meant to be knights, and that will leave the awkward teenager unable to respond)
And that's it. He's a good kid, with a chivalrous, heroic heart, from an underrepresented kith
