Bloodsucker: The Angst – Lolligoths

The Loligoth Clique

Bloodsuckers are pretty universal for the most part, the organisations that they’re a part of define them more than where they are in the world. Sure, there’s a few differences here and there according to local culture but usually that doesn’t manifest as any sort of huge difference. Sometimes however…

In Japan, and increasingly elsewhere, a new independent Clique has sprung up separate to the rest of Bloodsucker Society. Mostly insular the Loligoths have been unknown by the other Bloodsuckers until recently. With more and more of them turning up at conventions, clubs and other places that Bloodsuckers are known to hang out it was inevitable that there would be clashes and encounters.

Now the Loligoths are trying to find their place in broader Bloodsuckers society or to understand if there even is a place for them in it. Many of the other Cliques are trying to lay claim to them as part of their own, the Batshit in particular are keen to draw them to their side since they seem to have independently manifested their Cloth Crafting power.

Loligoths form their own little groups of five or more to compare outfits and hang out together. It’s almost all about the costume – and posing – but for the costumes to have the best impact they must be seen and, hopefully, they will outdo the costumes of their compatriots.

The anime craze has waned a little, which is weakening them, but they’re still exposed and the Clique is spreading beyond the borders of Japan to other nations with many obsessed white-girls (and boys, or so some people think, it can be hard to tell sometimes, other times, well, Man Fae or a bearded Sailor Moon).

Loligoths tend to either conform to or to confound racist and beauty stereotypes, to be intensely body-concious or blithely ignorant of their own physicality, to be truly gorgeous or unintentionally hideous.

Clique Power: Cloth Crafting
Loligoths have the power of Cloth Crafting, which was originally thought to only be a Batshit power, it’s a source of some consternation that they know it and that they seem to have developed it independently.

Clique Weakness
Loligoths have a unique ability to attract the attention of drooling perverts. At least once per game the Games Master can, will and indeed must inflict a drooling perv upon the Loligoth player, usually a creepy anime fan or a dirty old bastard. This is usually only a minor inconvenience, but it can turn serious and stalkerish if not dealt with with a firm manner.

Clique Strength
Loligoths get twice as much bonus from any clothing that they wear that can be construed to be ‘costume’. Cosplayers who dress up as vampire characters can also become ‘Loligoths’ though they don’t necessarily like the term. This is where the few genuinely and obviously male (though bishounen) Loligoths tend to come from and since pretty much everything they wear is costume, they get a truly powerful set of bonuses.
