STUNTS & ABILITIES

HUMANITY (+1 REFRESH)

  • UPSTART SPECIES (+1 REFRESH)
    Many races resent the fact that humanity gained a seat on the council so soon after first contact. The batarians in particular clashed with human interests in the Verge, blaming them for depriving them of valuable resources. Because of this humans suffer a penalty of -1 in social conflicts.

GENETICALLY ENGINEERED (-2 REFRESH)

While genetic engineering has been a long-practiced area of science amongst humanity for many centuries, it had fallen into disservice, primarily with the realization that humanity was not alone in the universe and “perfection” within that context was not possible. Minor tweaks to the genome have already eliminated most genetically-passed conditions and allow parents to tailor their child’s eye or hair color prior to birth. However, some still practice genetic engineering at an invasive level: expanding mental and physical capabilities, neural responses, and even the addition of biotic controls. A character with this stunt receives a floating +1 bonus to a skill roll usable once per session as well as a permanent +1 skill point of their choosing which may exceed the campaign’s maximum skill cap for power level.

COMBAT MASTERY

ADRENALINE RUSH (-1 REFRESH)

COOLDOWN: 1 +4 = 5

When activated make an Alertness roll. The effects of this talent will last for a number of exchanges equal to the shifts generated. While active this power negates the -2 penalty for firing a weapon outside of its Range group. It also gives the soldier a bonus to his weapon damage of +1.

CONCUSSIVE SHOT (-1 REFRESH)

DAMAGE: 0 RANGE: 0-6 PENETRATION: -1

NOTES: Aspect: Stunned!
COOLDOWN: 1 +4 = 5

Make a Guns attack against a target with a +2 bonus to the roll. If successful the target takes damage normally and if their shields are down has the “Knocked to the Ground” or “Stunned” Aspect placed on it. It has no effect on shields but is very effective against biotic barriers.

Barriers that are struck are brought down automatically and must be recharged normally.

ADVANCEMENTS (-3 REFRESH)

Gain 2 ADVANCEMENTS per Refresh spent.

WELL EQUIPPED (-6 ADVANCEMENTS)

  • Start the game with an additional 1 point of equipment per Advancement spent.

REFRESH 7 +1 = 8

Refresh Spent: -7
Total Refresh: 1

Bio:

BACKGROUND

Jacob has little or no memories of his life before he was rescued from a Cerberus research facility by Molan Wiks. Only vague impressions of pain and suffering. Raised by the canny Salarian while on the run from the STG he quickly learned to take care of himself under any circumstances. He learned much from his “father” including the urge to serve and protect the peoples of the galaxy. He owes his entire existence to his father. If only he could find out what Cerberus did to him and what they wanted.

RISING CONFLICT

Jacob grew at a remarkable rate and in just three years aged until he was a peak physical specimen of humanity. His cognitive and social skills also developed at a similar pace and Molan WIks suddenly found himself in charge of a teenager instead of the toddler foundling he had rescued. Instilled with a sense of duty by his foster father, Jacob joined the Alliance Marines (with some help creating a false identity using Molan’s old STG contacts) where he excelled.

THE STORY

STORY TITLE: THE SEEDS OF DARKNESS
GUEST STARRING: Alarik Desius

Jacob joined the Marines and served with distinction for several years until an incident involving an Admiral occurred. Jacob has no idea what happened but apparently during a chance encounter with Admiral Hackett he went berserk and tried to murder him. Because of his superior physical traits he was able to kill the Admiral’s bodyguard and was on the verge of executing the Admiral himself when Alarik Desius intervened and managed to incapacitate him.
