Lockdown Challenge Day Six: Call of Cthulhu 6th edition

The player character I’m generating today is actually not really for the Lockdown Contest... I genuinely need a new Call of Cthulhu 6th edition investigator, since mine died during the last session.

We have been playing a mash-up of Masks of Nyarlathotep and of Horror on the Orient Express since 2015 and, believe it or not, we are halfway between Kenya and China, and I’ve only lost two investigators. Meaning the one I’m generating today is only the third one. Fellow CoC enthusiasts who have been through the many horrors of the Masks campaign will know what I’m talking about.

Behold, then, William Tratman. William works in the Hong Hong Police, more precisely for the Water Police, specialising in anti-piracy work.
William is stationed at the Water Police Station at Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀) but his service is usually aboard a sailing gun-boat.
William has been corresponding with his friend Cedric Brackenbury [my previous character] and knows about Jackson Elias and the whole backstory behind the Masks campaign.
