This is more ridiculous than terrible.

One of the guys in our group tended to make interesting but not exactly... appropriate characters in Vampire. One of them was the worst Lasombra ever.
The original concept was a shrewd old woman who was an excellent lawyer, a Lasombra antitribu with ample amounts of Dominate and Obtenebration (yum, shadow tentacles). Her name was B.P. Sherridan. She could have been deliciously and subtly evil. It could have worked, really, it could have.
Instead, he played her like a sort of senile, genial old woman who didn't ever quite understand what was going on. We ended up calling her Beepy, which is not quite something you'd associate with a Lasombra, let alone any fucking vampire. Evidence:
Beepy: "I haven't had tea in the longest time..."
Winslow: "That's because afternoon tea would KILL you."
She was comically racist (I think she called me a sand demon because I was half-Egyptian) and called all of us "dearie", which was all good, but when she was supposed to be doing productive things, she just ended up taking her ghoul to the movies, ghouling a mouse, or randomly threatening to blow up my character because I didn't trust A GODDAMN LASOMBRA enough and kept excluding her from private meetings. The only remotely useful thing she did was her last-- she took her stupid grenades down into the tomb we had been fucking around with/exploring, and went to attack the mind-controlled vampiric guards in uniforms from various eras who were in front of a giant mirror there. In the first round, she took down the soldier from the Napoleonic era, and then was promptly annihilated by the rest of them.
What did the player say?
"I KILLED NAPOLEON!"
And we could never convince him otherwise.
(The sad thing is, his previous character was somehow LESS retarded despite being an idiotic, happy-go-lucky, one-eyed, deaf Brujah.)
