Super Abilities (Magically Based)
See the Invisible
Immobilization Ray (PU3 p65)

    The super being can fire a ray that simultaneously immobilizes and surrounds and protects the target. The ray also makes the target (person or object) weightless, allowing the super being to effortlessly move the immobilized target. The target and super being are connected together by the ray, meaning that for as long as the ray is emitted and held on that particular victim or object, it is held in the Immobilization Ray. However, the super being cannot use the hand projecting the ray for any other purpose and he loses one melee attack per round and skill performance is =15% while he splits his concentration to maintain the ray. The super being can only project and maintain a total of two Immobilization Rays, one from each hand, and must release one to immobilize a new target.

    The protective aspect of the ray makes what ever is held inside the beam immune to physical attacks, taking no damage from them, including bullets, grenades, explosives, punches (regardless of the attacker's P.S.), kicks, swords, other melee weapons, or any other purely physical damage. But the ray's protective field does not protect against fire, cold, electricity, plasma, radiation, particle beams, other energy-based attacks, psionics, or magic (except for physical psionic or magical attacks), poison, toxins, disease, gases, suffocation, drowning, etc.; all do full damage to the captive inside the ray. Thus, the Immobilization Ray has a variety of uses, from protecting innocent bystanders, to capturing opponents or moving heavy debris/objects, among an assortment of other applications.
  • Weight Tolerance: 200lbs per level of experience, is the maximum weight that can be held in each Immobilization Ray, regardless of the actual size/dimensions of the person or object.
  • Range: 40' + 10' per level of experience.
  • Duration: 2 min per level of experience
  • Damage: No direct damage, but the person affected cannot move a muscle or use a power, not even to speak (no spell casting) or use a psionic power or other mind power. Furthermore, time seems to pass much more quickly for the person trapped inside the ray (each minute seems like one melee round/15 seconds), so he doesn't even really know what's going on around him while trapped. (Sees only bits and pieces in random glimpses.) Note: The protective aspect of this power prevents the super being from lifting a victim high in the air and dropping him. Nor can the immobilized target beused like a club or a battering ram to hammer other people.
    Attacks per Melee: It takes one melee attack/action to fire and establish the Immobilization Ray and uses up one additional melee attack per round to maintain the ray and keep the victim held inside.
  • Bonuses: As per the character's usual bonuses to strike.

Zombie Flesh (PU3 p104)

    The character does not seem to die, even when he has had huge holes blown through his chest or has been mangled, dismembered or crushed! The character feels no pain and has minimal blood loss, even from the most grievous of wounds. In many respects this is similar to a very gruesome version of invulnerability. Holes and wounds in the character's Zombie Flesh regenerate and close incredibly quickly, making even the deadliest physical wound just an inconvenience. The hero can even have a massive head wound or be decapitated and survive! Abilities, Bonuses and Vulnerabilities: The effect of this gruesome form of invulnerability is that the character is effectively immune to physical attacks, taking no debilitating damage from them. Instead, knife wounds, bullets, grenades, explosives, punches (regardless of the attacker's P.S.), clubs, other melee weapons, car crashes, falls from great heights and any other purely physical damage mutilate and punch ghastly holes into the character's body, but he keeps on functioning as if nothing is wrong! Furthermore, those holes and damage miraculously heal in short order.

    The super being suffers no penalties or pain from physical damage, but if a limb is blown off, the character will suffer from the loss of that limb, at least until it can be reattached or grows back (overnight). So if the character is decapitated he will be blinded until the head can be reattached (or grows back in 24 hours), or the character could simply look through his own eyes while he holds onto his head until it can be reattached. It only takes the hero 1D4 melee attacks/actions to reattach a severed body part by simply holding the limb in place! A lost limb or even head will regrow in 12 hours or 24 hours respectively. If blown into several large pieces it will take 48 hours to pull himself back together. If the pieces are kept apart by some outside force for more that 48 hours, the character will die. While the zombie-like super being is more or less immune to physical harm, his power does not provide the same protection against other forms of attack/damage. Fire, cold, electricity, plasma, radiation, particle beams, other energy-based attacks, drowning, psionics and magic (except for physical psionic or magic attacks) all do full damage. Poison, toxins, drugs, disease, gasses, and all other forms of attack/damage do half damage. Bio-Regeneration: The character regenerates 1D6 S.D.C./Hit Points per melee round.
  • Bonuses: +3D6x10 to S.D.C, +2D4x10 to Hit Points. Add 2D6 to the P.S. attribute, which is considered Superhuman for the purposes of lifting and carrying things. +30% to save vs coma/death (this is in addition to any P.E. bonus).

Iron Will (PU1 33)

    The character possess an indomitable spirit. He is able to resist psionic attacks and mental assaults that would humble other men. Even some psychics do not possess his natural level of mental resistance.

    Bonuses: Needs a 12 or higher to save vs psionic attack as if he were a Major Psychic himself, is +7 to save vs possession, +6 vs mind control, +5 to save vs illusions and Horror Factor, +3 to save vs magic and disease, +3 to save vs insanity, +20% to save vs coma and death, and skill penalties for being confused, dazed or drugged are half for this focused and driven character.

Background Story

"Please don't hurt her, I'll do as you want," Reynaud said to the German officer in French. He was on the floor of the small antique shop, a rifle pointed at him by another soldier. The officer was holding his sister, Simone, with an old rusty dagger held pointed at her abdomen.

"Find me the artifact, it is a small sword with a reddish blade, there is some sort of writing along the blade," the officer said huskily in halting french as well. He poked the dagger at his sister, the tip was still sharp enough to pierce her shirt and a small circle of red appears on it.

"Let me go!" said Simone to the officer as Reynauld frantically searched the shop. The shop was owned by their parents, located in a small village on the north-eastern edge of France. His parents had traveled the world looking for the rare and interesting. He had been born in United States, during their travels and had spent most of his youth there, until they came to France in 1930 where they had settled down and where his sister, Simone, had been born. Now that he was older, his parents had left him in charge of the shop while they were traveling.

Panting, Reynauld came back to the officer empty handed, tears in his eyes, "It's not here, please let her go." His eyes searched the officer's eyes for compassion.

"Then you both are of no use to me. Men, ransack this shop. I told you the price of failure. The auguries were specific, the weapon is here!" The officer then stabbed Simone in the belly then let go of the dagger. She collapsed to the floor, a pool of blood grew quickly around her. The officer left quickly as Reynauld rushed forward to his sister. "Burn the shop and the two of them in it after you are done searching, I am moving to the next location." The officer barked as he departed.

"Simone,hold still, it will be alright," Reynaud said as he tried to staunch the wound.

"Rey, hold me, I am so cold, it hurts," his sister says as the half dozen men that were with the officer begin to ransack the store. Rey saw that the wound was fatal, and as the light finally faded from his sister's eyes, his heart turned to stone. He knew his training in boxing and wrestling might allow him a chance to escape, but his despair rooted him to his sister. He can only watch as he saw his family's business be destroyed as well.

Vengeance, he heard a strange feminine voice, I can give you vengeance.

"What?" It took him a moment to realize the voice was in his head. Whispering he asked, "Where are you? Who are you?"

I am a emissary of Hera, take the blade. Your sister's innocent blood has awakened me. That is not my purpose. I will aid you now to avenge her and in the future to save the innocent. But my way is hard and cold; meting out justice requires a resolution of purpose. Take my blade, say my name, the voice in his head said.

"What?" Rey said again, he looked down at his sister, her eyes stared at the ceiling. He closed them. Yes, I will have vengeance against these cruel men and those that command them. "What is your name? You haven't said." A thought bubbled up in his mind, a word. With tears in his eyes, he pulled the blade from his sister and whispered, "Vindicata."

The shop went black. It was not darkness, but as if something had filled the air blocking all light; but at the same time, Rey could see the dagger was now a sword, the blade bright blood red. He clearly saw and heard the soldiers as they began shouting at each other. It was obvious to Rey that while he could see, they could not. They stumbled looking for the exit. Reynauld stood up, the sword held firmly in his hand, the balance perfect. He moved to the closest one. "Rache." he said in German. The soldier was startled by the word, and then screamed as the sword cut through him. Shots began to be fired by the others. Reynauld's feet lift effortlessly off the floor and he went to the next, and the next, and the next, and the next, and the next. The screaming died down in unison to the thuds of bodies hitting the ground.

The darkness disappeared, Reynauld saw the dead surrounding him. "He that did this to my sister is not here."

We will find him, together.
