I'm not sure I understand his switching places, is his mind/spirit/anima body hopping, allowing him to possess people and then do what he wants with their body and his skill set? Are they transferred to his body for the duration, or are they repressed while he skin-rides them? Does his body lay comatose if they don't? What are the limits of this ability, and can other resist it?
What is his villainous motivation? What does he want from the world, did it wrong it, or does he merely disprove of it? Does he have a master plan?
On a more basic level, he is incredibly average, brown hair and blue eyes, WASP, marine, and that's all we know about him. I want to know more, I want some sort of insight into Castle to know who he is and what he wants. We don't know what he cares about, what he looks like, if he has any mannerisms, any calling cards or hallmarks that someone on his trail would be able to recognize.
Not bad, though the point I need to understand is how did he cause deaths with his ability? Is he pulling an Agent Smith on people he exchanges places with, or is he like, replacing the guy who is shooting at him, so the guy shoots himself?
As I rethink my constant running in and out of here, I realize NPCs subs are prob the worst kind of sub I can work on here.I am a product of my environment. That environment is the gaming bubble I live in, my players would have no appreciation for a lot of elements that might be found in what would be considered a mature game. The short version of this is that I have no need for anything more than 2 dimensional characters. I am basically still running the game as I was from 1981 when my still existing group started.This colors my writing and what I like to read. I in fact do not read NPCs here, They lack the practicality of my needs. What is different about my recent sojourn here is that I am correctly coming to terms with my realities. I need to mesh my basic needs with being a proper member of this group.I have great idea's but far too often I execute them poorly here, not in the way that has become the standard for others.I think with some effort I can blend my short windiness w/ that standard. Prob my last try at an NPC here, but by far not my last sub. Go to Comment
The way I understood it, the switching places ability is that he can physically switch places with someone else rather than possessing people. But I agree the first mention of the switching places was confusing- I thought it was a teleport ability like that movie where people can hop from place to place via a postcard (?) and there's a religious cult after these people to eliminate them cos they think such an ability is God's domain.
But yeah, this is more a super villain bio in that it concentrates on events as opposed to what most NPC subs here usually contain on motivation and personality. Go to Comment
I like this take of a runty dragon with an inferiority complex. I find myself feeling more sorry for his "virgin detectors" rather than the actual virgins. Also love the one eye much larger than the other detail for some inexplicable reason. :)
This reminds me of my own dragon-runt write-up from a while back, "Moleskin". Let me know what you think if the whim takes you. Go to Comment

The PC's enter a town amid a giant celebration, the Spring Wedding Festival. Unmarried men and women from all over the provinces gather her every spring to be matched by the most sacred matchmaker ever to live, Holly Lovard. Holly is now ancient and must be carried everywhere she visits and rumors are that this will be her last visit to the Wedding Festival so any matches made this spring will be doubley blessed.
Enter PC's, wrong place at the wrong time. Molly sees one of them, calls him/her out of the crowd and that are unable to resist the push and pull of the mob. Brought in front of Molly Lovard, the PC is declared the lifemate of .
Could be the king's daughter, a peasant, member of the thieves guild. Could be anything to add a twist to an already building plot, or just throw the characters into an awkward situation.
