Some Ideas For Original Characters

I've been brainstorming some ideas for original characters in this rpg. Just various labels, character traits. The kinds of people you might find in fin de seicle Europe. Feel free to add to it, use the ideas, etc.

One idea I really like is for someone to be a "yellow journalist" who writes the "society page" of a vaguely disreputable newspaper and prints sordid half-truths about their enemies, etc.

A Socialist/Marxist
Anarchist
Medium/Psychic
Successful Poet/Playwright (ie Shaw, Wilde), etc
Progressive Reformer
Atheist/Darwinist
Devout Catholic
Factory Worker
Captain of Industry
Luddite
Prostitute, renter, showgirl (think seamy underbelly)
Musician
Addict
A Traveller from America or the East
Starving, Obscure Poet/Writer/Artist (think Rimbaud)
Schoolteacher
Student, Studying Somewhere
A Common Criminal, Pickpocket, Petty Thief
A Murderous Madman
A Suffrage Advocate
