All characters MUST set their SECRET and MORTAL backgrounds, and all vampire characters must also set the VAMPIRE background, home clan bg (e.g. GANGREL, VENTRUE, et cetera), home domain bg (LOS-ANGELES for most), and one of either CAMARILLA or ANARCH as appropriate to your character. Though not required for approval, you are encouraged to complete as many bg's as you can.

Please review +news applications/backgrounds for guidelines on what information to provide in your backgrounds.

In the interest of full disclosure, there is another field on your +bg which staff can view that even you cannot see. This records information about you regarding things which you should not know about IC or OOC. E.g. who is your true sire? Or maybe you are a prime candidate for a long-term plot to be developed.
