Background
Pickpocket, thief, gutter rat, punk. That's how Dom started out in life, running with a pack of city rats in the 'Burbs of Chi-Town ducking he law and scrounging to get by. A random dog pack search would change that life forever. The leader of the canine unit smelled Dom's magic potential - potential he didn't know he had - and moved in to make an arrest. Fortunately, the young rat knew a few tricks that weren't magical and managed to make a run for it...right into the arms of the Immaterial Hand, a faction of the Black Market who specializes in using magic to move goods. The Hand was always on the lookout for kids like Dom, lonely street rats with magical potential. With help from the Hand, Dom honed his magical potential and became a skilled specialist in moving goods and people outside the eyes of the law.

During the war Tolkeen leaned on the Hand to break the CS blockades and get supplies and weapons into the besieged city. Dom made a number of successful runs into the city, thanks to the high concentration of ley lines. He even started a side business of evacuating people from the city (for a fee, of course). He became a real pro at moving people past the CS and made himself a target of the CS military. When the city fell and the flood of refugees left the area Dom saw a business opportunity - unfortunately refugees don't have much money. He agreed to move one group to Castle Refuge under the promise the Legion would reimburse him for his trouble. They did. They also offered him a job helping the legion move goods and people past the CS. Never one to look some easy credits in the mouth, he accepted. The arrangement is working for now but Dom knows eventually the Hand will want him to come back in from the cold. There's also the matter of the bounty hunters trying to turn him into the CS.

Adds +2 Armor and +1 Toughness on top of worn armor and provides +2 to resist heat and cold related environmental Hazards. Infusing the coat with PPE activates the protection power.
  • Identity Protection: Throw off the authorities or, better yet, pin the caper on your rival by flipping up the collar to disguise your appearance. Wearer can flip the collar up to activate disguise power.
  • Stylish Design: Dress for success with this coat that never goes out of style. Wearer gains the Charismatic Edge and +1 to Persuasion rolls when Networking.
