Character Name: Martina Graciela Minerva Valdez
Alias: Minerva, Grace Minerva, Diamond (Spook Squad Callsign)
Race: Achilles Neo-Human
O.C.C.: None.
Alignment: Aberrant
XP Level: 7
XP Points: 48,684 (C&PD-10/6)
Next Level @ XP: 52,001
Sentiments/Non-Humans: Her brothers and sisters are non-human. She has love for all creatures that don't fit the “normal” mold.

Disposition: Fiery spirit. Doesn't back down from a fight. Will always stand up for those who can't.
Insanity: Phobia: parasitic beings of all kinds. From the lowly leech to the highly evolved psi-stalker, these beings and their nature terrify her to such an extent that all courage and reason will flee her when so confronted by these beings.

Racial Abilities
Supernatural Transformation
☞ Supernatural Strength
☞ S.D.C. and H.P. combine to become M.D.C.
☞ Cost: I.S.P. Points halved, -2 I.S.P (unreplenishable during transformation) per hour until depleted.

☞ Cost: 50 I.S.P.
☞ Max Weight: M.E.x 100+100 lbs/level (3000 lbs)
☞ Range: 100' +50'/level (400')
☞ Duration: 2 minutes per level of experience (14 minutes)
☞ Bonuses:
  • +3 to strike with Telekinesis, physical/skill bonuses to strike do not apply when Telekinesis is used.
  • +4 to parry with Telekinesis by using a controlled object to parry or sheer telekinetic force to block an attack.

Telekinetic Flight
☞ Speed: 100 mph
☞ Cost: 15 I.S.P.
☞ Duration: 2 minutes/level (14 minutes)

The neo-human can attempt to disorient an opponent's mind by sending it on a “trip.” Victims of this attack get to save vs psionics at -2 to save (so even a master psionic must roll a 12 or higher to save). A successful save means the character is suddenly overwhelmed by a splitting headache and is -2 on initiative and -10% on skill performance for 2D4 minutes.
A failed roll sends the character's mind on an uncontrollable mind trip, as if riding a gentle wave on the ocean or among clouds in the sky. The victim feels warm, at peace and awestruck. He or she loses all sense of time, his mission, goal, danger, and everything around him. While in this euphoric state, the character slumps to his knees and does absolutely nothing for 2D4 melee rounds +1 per level of the neohuman (2D4+7 melee rounds). Nothing can rouse the character from the mind wave except being struck with serious physical damage! The shock and pain brings the character around but all his attacks per melee, bonuses, speed and skill performance are half for 2D4 minutes! If allowed to snap out of the trance at the end of its natural duration, the character suffers no ill effects whatsoever. Only one person can be affected by a mind wave per psionic attack, and each attack counts as the equivalent of two melee attacks. This power costs 30 I.S.P. to activate, and has a maximum range of 300'.

Touch of Health
☞ Effect: Subject regains 1D6x10 S.D.C. or M.D.C., any non-magical diseases, infection and fractures (but not missing limbs) are cured. +30% vs Coma
☞ Range: Touch (will work through body armor, but not power armor or vehicle)
☞ Cost: 15 I.S.P.

Touch of Death
☞ Effect: Save vs Psionics or 1D4x10 S.D.C. or M.D.C. and must then make a save vs lethal poison or fall unconscious for 1D4 melee rounds. If the save vs psionics is made, 1D6 S.D.C. or 2D6 M.D.
☞ Range: Touch (will work through body armor, but not power armor or vehicle)
☞ Cost: 15 I.S.P.

Minerva's Background

Post by Minerva »

Martina was always different. Whether it was her long red hair standing out as a bright beacon, her love for life outside the city of Cordelia or her fighting spirit, she made her mark on anyone who met her. This meant both positive and negative, as there were many of the mutant animals of Cordelia that hated her for her radiant looks and charming personality. This made what should have been an easy childhood, difficult at best. But she never gave up on her brethren.

From ages 18-22, Martina joined the Achilles Army and learned how to put her great powers to their best use. She was given the option, upon the end of her contract to leave the army or stay on as an agitator in the enemy nation of Cordoba. She chose the latter.

Sneaking into Cordoba by sea, Martina used the identity of Graciela “Grace” Minerva and settled in to a life there. Working at a fruit stand by day, she actively sowed chaos amongst the people at night. Tearing down walls with her mind, setting fires, and spreading dissent amongst the D-Bee slaves were her modus operandi.

All it takes is one person who doesn't want to be saved to rat you out. In this case, it was a literal mutant rat that gave Martina up to the Cordoban Internal Security Agency. The next morning, they had her surrounded at her fruit stand and taken into custody for questioning. The following is an transcribed (and translated into American) excerpt from the tapes of that interrogation.

ISA: Tell me. Do you know why you're here?
Martina: I am here because you doubt my dedication to this fine nation of Cordoba, though I put in my labor day in, day out. Just like everyone else.
ISA: Yes. But it's your nights that we are here to talk about. What do you do at night time?
M: I do what the rest of the citizens of this nation do. I sleep. It's much too dangerous outside what, with those awful mutants being allowed to exist. You should really do something about that, with all that military might you have.
ISA: Oh, sleep? Well, then this has all been a case of mistaken identity! Surely if you're sleeping you couldn't possibly be the woman in black armor with bright red hair going around at night, planting explosives, telling the slaves to revolt and breaking our things, now could you? And this couldn't possibly be your image that we pulled from the camera eye of a mutant rat you were talking to earlier, could it, Minerva?
M: That rat bastard gave you my name.
ISA: Clever. So, now you know why you're here and what we intend to do with you, don't you spy?
M: Your intentions matter not. By the time you come to, I will be a shadow, long gone from here.
ISA: There's no way for you to leave this room. The door is locked and...

[3 minutes of silence]

Subject: Minerva has escaped Cordoban custody and is believed to be armed and dangerous. Use caution when approaching.

Wanted for: Associating with D-Bees, assaulting humans, theft, destruction of property.

Escaping into the night and surviving off of the land, Martina decided to see the rest of the world and not go back to her homeland where she was appreciated by some, but hated by others for who she was. She used what little money she had and booked passage to the North. The rest, only time will tell...
