They set out to make something from nothing. It’s not clear whether they succeeded or not. See, it turns out there’s a lot of grey area between something and nothing.You’re alive, but you’re not real. You don’t have a soul. You don’t have childhood memories, because you don’t have a childhood. You don’t have parents; you have makers. And those makers forgot to give you a place in the world.
You’ve been taking your social cues from someone, and doing so has taught you a lot about them. Gain 2 Strings on them.
Someone’s seen through your invented past, and realized it’s all lies. They gain 2 Strings on you.
Your body is a prison. You don’t belong inside of it. You need to put it in harm’s way, and make it suffer, just like it’s made you suffer. There’s got to be a way to cut yourself out of it. You need to meet your makers, and hold them accountable for what they’ve done to you. To escape your Darkest Self, you must come to see how someone else feels more trapped than you do.

When you have sex with someone, both players secretly write down whether the sex was confusing or soothing for their character. If you reveal the same answer, both characters mark experience.
Uncertain, unstable, impressionable, and lost. The Hollow doesn’t have a past, and is struggling to imagine their future. They’re in the midst of an existential crisis, and being not-quite-real they can only look to those around them for the answers.
The Hollow’s two stat options slant toward being either beautiful enigma (Hot 1 & Dark 2) or an erratic misfit (Volatile 2 & Dark 1). Their Cold stat is low, making it hard for them to confront their fears or stand up to others.
The Hollow is yearning for a sense of self, and clinging to any labels which seem like they might help cobble together an identity, which is why so many of their moves revolve around Conditions.
When you use Strange Impressions, you can gain any of the Skin Moves on the relevant sheet. You aren’t limited only to the ones which have been selected for that character. When you temporarily gain a move in this way, it doesn’t affect the other character’s access to it.
If the Hollow has sex with more than one person at once, everyone does the writing and revealing simultaneously. If the Hollow shared an answer with one or more characters, that’s the set of characters who mark experience.
