Discussions on what to do next, interrupted by Easter Cake and Birthday Cake Smile

Dr Watt is unsure how to progress, knowing that his Blood Blocking skill will disrupt the Power-Structure of the Bleeders, and quite possibly get him killed.
Looking at anonymously spreading rumours that a method of blocking Masters is available.

Vinnie is building up his Cult, and looking to Voodoo for ideas on how to structure it.

Grendel has rebuilt her Ideals and Views, and is looking to Voodoo for direction in life.

Mack is working on converting Voodoo Powers to Bleeder Powers, and recruiting new students.

Bit of a quandary with my toon - how to differentiate my toon from Chris's.

I seem to end up doing his stuff (drinking blood, being a face if only because he is not there). He crosses into my turf (at creation becoming a wizard, building a ghoul power structure, looking to build a coterie).

Am I being overly concerned, and how can I ensure we dont cross too much?

Is there a problem with overlapping?

Personally, and as a GM, I don't have a problem with you having similar characters.

He is the main Face, and you take over as needed. (Doesn't help that the two other PCs are not as Social, but this is not always true - they can have their moments.)
You are both building Coteries (as good Bleeders should!) He is building a Muggle cult, and (I presume) will choose some Students from it. You are directly recruiting Students.
You are both Powerful Mages, but specialised in different areas (he Manipulation, you Sensory)

He is flavoured as "Vampire", you as "Wizard" (albeit "Blood Mage").
Obviously there will be overlap of theme here, but with a little effort I think you can be separate from each other. Be more "Blood Mage", less "Vampire"?
(If Chris did more to enact his Theme it might help ... )

I know that "in-character", Mack would use Vinnie's blood as needed, but you "stealing" his abilities directly does exacerbate the "overlap".

-----

On a sort-of-related note:

Do all of the Players have a note of what blood samples they have?
You may be Powerful Bleeders, and have a Cryo-Unit, but you do not (yet) have large, loyal Herds (Chris is getting closest with his Cult).
Buying lots of Blood in-gang obviously enters the Political arena (e.g. Patricia's lieutenants are known Blood-Dealers => Patricia knows what Skills you have access to). Sourcing your own supplies is not at "handwavium" stage yet. Especially Rank 5 Skills.
