Powers 60/60
SEED Infokinesis
Broadcast 2 (8)
- Alternate Trait: Electronics skill +1
- Channel Surfer: The character can tap into as many channels as he can detect at the same time. +1
- Manipulation: The character can broadcast previously recorded audio or video as long as the recording can be accessed somewhere, or can splice together clips from previous audio / visual sources into brand new video. "Deep fakes" are detectable by experts as they contain manipulated data, but stand up to the scrutiny of most untrained viewers. +3
- Range (100miles) +1

Telepathy 2 (2)
The character can communicate with any or all intelligent minds of her choice within 24" (48 yards).
- Switchboard: The telepath can link all friendly, intelligent minds in Range. Everything the individuals consciously "say" is communicated to the entire group. +2
- Robots/Computer/Cyborgs Only -2

Interface 2 (9)
Your hero can interface with electronic gadgets, giving him much greater access to their inner workings than others. He gains +2 to Electronics and Hacking rolls.
- Contingent Skill Bonus - Research+2 +4
- Codebreaker: The super can open electronic locks, bypass security systems, and override other similar protection devices without any tools. Thievery gains the +2 bonus for interface so long as electronics are involved in some way. +1
- Fast: Attempts to use any skill affected by interface that would normally take 10 minutes or less can be tried with a single action. +2

Malfunction 3 (9)
The character can cause technological devices and machines to fail by picking a target within 12" and making a Focus roll. If successful, the device malfunctions in some way. With a raise, anyone using the device is Distracted. Most devices just stop functioning until the bearer uses an action to make a Repair roll. Large or complex devices with Wounds like vehicles take a Critical Hit (see Savage Worlds).
- Alternate Trait: Electronics skill +1
- Selective +1
- Area (LBT) +4

Mind Control 5 (6)
The super can control a target within 12" (24 yards) by making a Focus roll. If successful, the target must make a Spirit roll to resist (at –2 with a raise on the Focus roll) or she's controlled for as long as the attacker cares to maintain the power, or she breaks free (see below).
- Alternate Trait: Hacking skill +1
- Forgetful: The victim doesn't remember what happened while mind controlled +2
- Robots/Computers/Cyborgs Only -2

Mind Reading 3 (7)
To read someone's mind, the super chooses a target within 6" (12 yards) and makes a Focus roll. If he's successful, the target makes a Smarts roll to resist (at –2 with a raise on the Focus roll).
- Alternate Trait: Hacking skill +1
- Memory Mastery: The mind reader can alter and repair memories. The super must first successfully read the target's mind with a raise. If so, he can
remove a short memory as an action. He might make a target forget an encounter, that she ever met an acquaintance, and so on. Given a longer amount of time (GM's call but at least ten minutes), she can remove any number of memories. With 5 points in the power and the process outlined above, she can implant new memories or restore those that were altered by this power, a traumatic event, or other means. +5
- Robots/Computers/Cyborgs Only -2

SuperCognition (19)
Mind Shield (1)

Re: Death Otter

Post by Death Otter »

Death Otter came out of seemingly nowhere in Center's undercity, and there's a good reason for that. It's exactly what happened, at least as far as the Three Galaxies are concerned. A minor, but unscheduled and uncontrolled dimensional rift event took place, depositing a young Death Otter and an older gentleman unceremoniously in one of the more dangerous parts of the downlevels. Fortunately they weren't altogether unprepared for unpleasantries, and managed to get off the streets before things got too hot.

Accounts, sparse to begin with, diverge here. You might hear that the two were separated by force, the girl kidnapped and recruited into one of the many gangs that ran rampant down in the levels below the security nets. Others insist that the girl gave the old man the slip, leaving on her own terms. Still others would claim the man managed to cobble together passage through a rift back home, but the girl decided to stay behind. There's few enough witnesses, and fewer still that cared enough to recall, so the only owner of the real story is Otter herself, and she's never told the same version twice.

In the end what's important is that Otter did finally find herself on her own, more or less, in Center. She made her way in a gang for a time, even young she had some wicked tech skills. Not so much for building and repairing, but for breaking down and subverting, and that suited the criminal lifestyle just fine. In time, a friend...or maybe a friend of a friend...got the girl connected to someone who was promising something of great interest. A complete mental 'upgrade,' through technology.

A disgraced cyberdoctor and neural engineer named Dr Nereese who had, back in the day, pioneered groundbreaking improvements to the M.O.M implant systems one can find here and there in the Three Galaxies. These systems, while not illegal to possess, were outlawed for installation throughout the CCF and several other intergalactic states as their side effects became clear. That caused the utter financial collapse of many people's fortunes, Nereese's included.

He was back though, moving quietly in the undercity, finding people desperate enough to risk unproven implants in exchange for what meager financial reward the doctor could muster (more than one might think, with the tacit support of the Black Market) or the promise of vastly expanded mental capacities that were just around the corner.

Surprising no one, the vast majority of implantees suffered severe, often crippling side effects. Even those that managed to retain some semblance of functionality were forever transformed by the process, and rarely for the better. Death Otter benefited from two factors though. First, she was among the very last of the program's subjects before Nereese was discovered by Central security officers and shut down. This mean the version of the SEED implants she got had benefited from some hard lessons learned in earlier versions. Second, she herself was different than most. Like her sister, now universes away, she had inherited some of her father's supernatural 'touch' with machinery. She could think in machine language, feel the pulse of electricity thrumming in the wires.

As a result, instead of fighting the SEED and breaking...or being overwritten and replaced by something else...Death Otter was able to integrate with the system. The process left its mark on her, but she was still herself in a way that no other test subjects had been. And because of that, she was in a position to use the SEED system in a way no one else had been able to, harnessing its full potential. It was a shame that Doctor Nereese had been discovered and arrested before he had a chance to find the escaped Otter and discover how to replicate that one in a billion success story. Almost as big a shame as how many suffering test subjects were mysteriously released by a system glitch around the same time. A real shame.

From there Death Otter returned to her old life for a little while. She found however that huddling in the shadows doing drek work for pond scum didn't do it for her anymore. The SEED had opened new horizons. There was no such thing as a secure system anymore. Firewalls and software security protocols were often simply...irrelevant, as she connected to computers without the need for software interfaces at all. She could simply alter the processor and memory states at will, causing the system to do as she wished without interference from pesky programs.

But if she wanted to go big time, she needed a wardrobe change. And a chance to put her new skills to the test. Otter got both in spades with a series of high profile heists of some very cutting edge prototype gear. While at first she thought she'd gotten away scot free, she was quickly disabused of that notion. The official, and unofficial, responses to her activities were way past what she'd been expecting. It was no longer safe for her on Central.

So Death Otter left. She threw a butt-ton of money at the problem, and got the heck out of there. For awhile longer she bounced around the Three Galaxies, getting into trouble, getting back out of trouble, and leaving a whole lot of scorched earth in her wake. Eventually that scorched earth led her to a little ship who's name really summed up her life's ethos.

Remorseless.

looks good
  • 2D6 EFFECT
    2 Catastrophe: Something goes terribly wrong. The GM must decide what, but some ideas are a new and permanent Minor Hindrance, the inability to use powers for several days, or an explosion of some sort. The backlash should be thematic if possible. If the hero tampers with dark forces for his abilities, for example, he might become corrupted or summon something sinister into the world. If he’s a weird scientist the device might explode for 3d6 damage in a Medium Blast Template, or he might develop a Quirk, Phobia, or other “madness.”

    3 Backfire: The power succeeds as with a raise but affects a different target with the worst possible results. A bolt hits a random friend, boost Trait increases an enemy’s skill or attribute, etc. If there’s no likely target, he’s Stunned instead. If the power has a Duration other than Instant, it lasts its full term and can only be negated by dispel (the caster can’t voluntarily end it herself).

    4–5 Short Circuit: The power fails but the Power Points allocated to it are spent, along with an additional 1d6 Power Points.

    6–8 Stunned: The caster is Stunned (see page 106). She subtracts 2 from arcane skill rolls for the rest of the encounter (the penalty remains –2 even if she gets this result again).

    9–10 Overload: The character’s synapses crackle and overload with power. He takes 2d6 damage plus the cost of the power in Power Points, including any Power Modifiers the player declared.

    11 Fatigue: The character suffers Fatigue.

    12 Overcharge: The power draws ambient energy from the air, automatically succeeding against the target with a raise and costing the caster no Power Points!
