My character in Dark Heresy (Guardsman, fanatically loyal to the Imperial cult) lost his right arm during a raid on a Chaos cult. Didn't take it well, hyper-PTSD and immense phantom pains (his arm got blasted off by a plasma-pistol).

My Werewolf-Rahu lost both of his eyes in an acid-attack by some crazed Murder-spirit. Took him too long to regenerate both of his retinas, so he had a left eye and a dried up potatoe for his right.

Samefag here. I usually have my characters come pre-scarred; an Ascension character I had was a Krieg Stormtrooper, an otherwise-cute young woman whose face was covered in shrapnel scars, and she was missing her right eye, having replaced it with a bulky, ugly bionic. Her vocal cords were also permanently damaged when her throat was slashed, so she couldn't speak louder than a hoarse whisper. She usually just kept her gas mask on and used sign language to communicate.

My DH psyker (I smell a theme) in a feral world campaign had his arm taken off at the shoulder by a arrow.
Barely managed to stave off lethal infection, pushed to the brink of sanity by the death of a dear friend in the very same battle and no fancy bionics to replace his arm, he abandoned pretenses of kindness and being "merely a simple fortuneteller" for full on killing power.
It was a definitive character shift.

I always had a special place in my heart for this picture. I love this picture. For the longest time I didn't know what I liked about it but once I thought about it the reasons became clearer. I like this picture because it portrays a person who is physically crippled but has not let that slow her down. The picture is simple and mundane, but small details tell me some things about her.

Her laundry hanging in her room says that she is self sufficient. She can do her own chores and she takes care of herself. She takes pride her in appearance, even if it is only by wearing clean clothes.

Her cats. She has a lot of them, but it shows that she is capable of not only taking care of herself but taking care of others. Even if its just some pets.

Her guitar tells me that she has a hobby. Although she originated on gurochan (surely as fapfuel), she has a hobby. She has things she likes and things she likes to do. Even that bit of character, even if it were all that existed, is a lot of character for mere fetish fuel.

And last of all, her smile. She is smiling in that image. Whatever caused her to lose her leg did not take away her ability to smile. A real smile, even one in just a picture is pleasant to see.

It is probably weird to say all this and I don't mean to obsess, but that picture really speaks to me.

I also wonder where I can get Anal brand boxers.

Dark heresy. Soon-to-ascend guardsman. Has half of his face burn scarred by a hellgun, didn't bother him much, only made him a little bit more grumpy.
Last session, while he was alone he killed 7 out of 10 ascended inquisition stormtroopers, whom attacked him simultaneously. As a result of the combat, some half of his body was turned to ash/melted and most organs were fucked up. Party found him and stuffed him into a stasiscoffinthing, which we had found earlier. I've been thinking how to handle this funkyness, since there seems to be a possibility of keeping my character alive, though it will probably result in a lot of heretech augs and prostethics. dem insanity points.
Turns out the coffin (full of wires and shit) was also a terminal that could access the security systems (murder servitors allover) of the complex we were in. Suffice to say, he took revenge on the remaining enemy stormtroopers, when he regained consciousness.

my current character is an assassin for the Dark Lanterns of Breland. while fighting the dreaming dark at one of their places of worship we found an alter. since I was the only person who trained in arcana i had to determine what kind of energy is radiating from the alter. turns out it was primordial energy that the dreaming dark is harnessing. so my character tried to defuse it. i rolled ok but i fell just short of complete success. Instead of defusing it i just freed the elemental spirit and part of it's spirit went into my character. So now he has a minor lightning resistance and a few other minor lightning related powers but his entire right arm, that he was touching the alter with, has turned pitch black.

Had a character that was a Get of Fenris ahroun. Fucking hilarious. One of the first things playing Get is a ritual that involves two higher ranked garou with silver knives kicking your ass for a humbling and a ritual set of scars. Through luck and a bit of quick thinking he beat them with a single wound, across his neck/shoulder. He earned quite a bit of glory for that (seeing as how you're generally supposed to lose that fight, considering your enemies are armed and higher ranked).

Get of Fenris (and Garou in general) tend to pick up a lot of scars on their way up in ranks. He spent most of his time in the front, taking hits and beating the hell out of things, but nothing actually managed to hurt him all that badly. He eventually made Elder with a single scar. It was some time later that he got a second one, on his chest right at the end of the first (a gunshot wound in Wolfhome, the umbral realm).

His scars form an exclamation point across his upper chest. At this point he's considered scary not because of how scarred he is, but because of how little he's been hurt compared to some of the things he's done and killed.

But the best one was the time a character totally overestimated a crab-like monster stuck to his neck: she panicked and shot it with BOTH GUNS, killing the crab but exploding her own head in the process. She lost her jaw Malak-style and one of the bullet is still in her head, about to kill her if she makes any moves. Fortunately, she lives in a vegetable-state and won't move anymore.

The Navigator in my group was interrogating a rogue psyker they had captured and was making progress when the guy's jaw started to dislocate and he started to cough something up. Before the Navigator could shoot him, she realized what it was.

None of my character's have been disfigured IN game. But my current gurps character is a female bardlike necromancer (magery bought with Song limitation, also has Voice advantage and decent social skills, some musical talent, and Musical Influence skill). She was attractive but was disfigured by a bit of Necromantic blight, which destroyed her left eye, and most of her face. (giving her the Hideous disadvantage, and One Eye.) But that was part of her backstory so she started already disfigured.

I did have one of my players in the game I run lose an eye though. He took it well.

In Deathwatch, our group got caught in a plasma reactor explosion, and only survived by burning fate. The GM ruled we had most of our skin burned off and all our limbs were completely broken. It took us nearly a year ingame time untill we were back in combat shape. The other characters opted to have their broken limbs reconstructed, but my Techmarine replaced most of the damaged parts with bionics. All of his limbs have been replaced with bionic ones, and his torso is also heavily cyberneticed.

The funny thing with my hunter character was that it forced character development. His only previous experience with anything paranormal was figuring out what he had to load into a 12 gauge shell or what trap to build in order to kill it.

Being saved by a promethean, by being turned into a promethean, eventually led to him hating them less. He had nothing but intense fear and hatred of the paranormal, shell shocked by some bad experiences leading to the death of some friends. I hated that character up until his change of heart. Then he got interesting.

Yeah, my human rogue was scarred pretty badly last year. The halfling bard in our party had been captured by ogre bandits when they ransacked our camp (fail bounty hunting mission). tracked and caught up with the ogres just before they got back to their camp, the chieftain carrying a sack containing our bard..

So, the plan is that I'm to sneak in and find out where she is/free her with my stealthing and what have you, signal a distraction by the rest of the party, and we get out of dodge. Session ends, Bard gets a solo session over the weekend.

Now, we're pretty now level, and ogres are pretty bloody scary. So next week comes along, I sneak around the chief's place, his guards outside don't see me, but as I get round the back I can hear there's some sort of struggle going on inside.

Clearly shit went down in her solo session on the weekend so I bite the bullet, say my goodbyes to my 20 or so hps, and pray for 20's when I rush in to save her in combat against the biggest ogre we've ever seen. Forever my rogue will carry the scars of walking in on her successful attempt to seduce her way out of being eaten.

DM of the party with the princess and bodyguard bit, here.
I have a house rule, where a critical hit results in some kind of disfigurement. Examples include when an assassin NPC tried to kill the princess and she grabbed a dagger from his belt and slashed at him, miraculously rolling a crit. This resulted in her slicing his left cheek open, so that he's got a Tijuana grin on the left side of his face (I speak of him in present tense, because he's still yet to be killed and recurs that campaign and a second one I'm running in the same setting). Another would be from said second campaign, when one PC head-butted an elf in the face for a crit and knocked out a bunch of its teeth. And of course, back to the previous campaign, when the princess's bodyguard had to fight off like 7 guys and ended up taking multiple crits, which resulted in a variety of scars on her body, which she appears to be very sensitive about.
I'm sure many people would call me dickish for essentially modifying other people's characters with unofficial house rules, but with the assassin and bodyguard's cases, it's actually helped develop them as characters.
