Hey Sean, that's an excellent question. I actually think there's a large amount of leeway in the lore for characters that don't quite fit the mold. Leonid Bartholamew is actually quite a deviant sort of fellow from the standard Forsaken stereotype, so it seems to me that there could be plenty of others.Suppose, for instance, that you wanted to have an "absent-minded professor" sort of humorous character. I think the Forsaken would be an ideal race to roleplay that with. He could even be quite cheerful if he viewed himself as an inherently cheerful person, and steadfastly upheld cheerfulness even when his body didn't react to the feeling physically. People shouldn't misunderstand from this article that Forsaken have no feelings at all. They just don't have physical sensations of feelings in their bodies. For some that would mean that their feelings slowly withered away, but for others it could mean that a few feelings came to more or less permanently dominate the rest. Ultimately, even without a living body, a Forsaken is still whoever he chooses to be. He may not be a "person" in the sense that he is removed from the natural order of the world, quite apart from the rest of creation; but he still is a person in the sense that he decides for himself what his values are and how he should act from moment to moment.
