"My sister Veronica and I had this double act, and my husband Charlie traveled around with us. Now for the last number in our act we did these 20 acrobatic tricks in a row: one, two, three, four, five, splits, spread-eagles, back-flips, flip-flops, one right after the other. So this one night before the show we're at the hotel Cicero, the three of us boozin, having a few laughs, and we run out of ice, so I run out to get some. I come back, open the door, and there's Veronica and Charlie doing number 17, the spread-eagle! Well, I was in such a state of shock that I completely blacked out; I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was washing the blood off my hands, I even knew they were dead!" --Velma Kelly
In order to explain Velma Kelly still being among the living - and not an old lady - I've decided to make her a Highlander style Immortal. Please don't accuse me of being a Mary Sue where she's concerned. She's just one of my favorite characters of all time, and there aren't a whole lot of RPGs set in the 20s. None that I know of actually.
Velma died in a gangland masacre during prohibition on her way out on a date with Big Jimmy Corolli. She died besides Jimmy in a hail of gun fire when Jimmy's gang was ambused by the Capones. Velma was pretty damned shocked to wake up in the funeral home. Since then, she's traveled around the world, doing her best to avoid ever having to fight for herself. Sure she knows how, but she'd rather get some man to do it for her. Or cheat...
Well that's the story she tells every Immortal she meets. She plays the innocent little thing who doesn't want to fight. But if you follow this link The Real Skinny on Destiny Ambrose, you'll find out the truth.
Destiny Ambrose - unlike Velma Kelly - is an original character of mine. Please do not steal her.
