The Secret Fates of Heroes
While you can be ANY class, I am only going to list classes here that I want to emphasize for this game.
Awakened Humans who have seen the world for what it really is and are empowered by that knowledge (Buffy, Angel, Supernatural, Hellblazer, X-files, Fringe, MIB)
Werewolves Manic beings driven by an inner desire to destroy (See: Underworld, An American Werewolf in Paris)
Scions Virtually unkillable inheritors of an ancient power, Scions, aka as Demons or Infused, are driven by their inner beliefs and passions. (See: Percy Jackson, Frozen, Big Trouble in Little China, Avatar the Last Airbender, The Legend of Hercules, Thor)
Gargoyles Beings connected to stone and defense. Virtually powerless by day, at night, they become powerful beings capable of extraordinary feats. (See: Gargoyles)
Vampires Vampires. While these kind can walk in the sun, it still damages them and does eventually kill them. (See: Anne Rice Vampire novels, Underworld, Buffy, Angel, Blade)
Mages No one knows how those known as Mages came to be, but what is known is that they command incredible power, albeit at a cost: Knowledge of the Truth of the Universe. (See: Doctor Strange, Dark City, The Matrix, Hellblazer, the Dresden Files, Assassin’s Creed, True Detectives S1, Lovercraft Mythos, Hellboy)
- Sin-Eaters Becoming a Sin-Eater is not a calling—it’s a curse. When a creature dies, its spirit flees its body and begins the next stage of its existence. Debilitating emotional attachments during life cause some spirits to make their way back to the Material Plane, seeking refuge in the mind and soul of the recently deceased, return their new host to life. Such a fusing of consciousnesses creates a Sin-Eater—the master of a single powerful phantom who does their bidding.
- Witches Witches are beings who possess inherent properties that grant them the ability to use magic. They have an intrinsic connection to the Universe. (See: Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Harry Potter, Practical Magic, Hocus Pocus, The Craft, Charmed)
- Warlocks Warlocks are beings who possess inherent magical powers, but their soul is committed to an outside power, rarely of their choosing. (See: Reaper, Dead like me, Deadbeat, Supernatural, Heroes, The Collector)
Wizards People who have studied magic from a young age and can command it to do as they wish, within a strict set of parameters (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Harry Potter)
Bards People who use music to create magic.
Inquisitors People empowered by god and the Vatican to protect mankind (Hellsing, Preacher, Priest)
Monks Someone, who, through intense training, has incredible martial and physical power, and sometimes mental power as well. (See: Kung-Fu, Buttleproof Monk, Iron Fist)
- Mad Scientist An inventor of wild devices not known for their stability (See: Megamind, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Eureka, The Prestige, Wild Wild West, Better off Ted, Breaking Bad)
Witch Hunter: Well intentioned and soul-saving, witch hunters are born of a Protestant-tradition that leaves the pesky sort-them-out trade to the Lord. They tend to be highly principled, and can usually be seen handing out the Torches and Pitchforks. (See: Van Hellsing, Witch Hunter Robin, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, The Last Witch Hunter, Season of the Witch)
Dreamers: When the world seems to get somebody down, it is the Dreamers whom others rely upon to motivate them and restore their vitality. Dreamers use their imagination and hopes to fuel their magical powers, including visualizing and summoning imaginary friends into being and tapping into the life essence of creation to create wonders..
