Hindrances
  • Curious (Major): Very interested in relics and the ancient past, especially Ancient Terran technology.
  • Driven (Major): Wants to prove a woman can compete in a man’s world.

Edges
  • Ace: Ignore 2 points of penalties to Boating, Driving, or Piloting. May spend Bennies to Soak damage to their vehicle using appropriate skill instead of Vigor.
  • Arcane Background (Weird Science)
  • Gadgeteer: Spend up to three Power Points to “jury rig” a device from most any reasonable collection of spare parts. This allows her to use any power normally available to Weird Scientists of her Rank or lower in her particular setting, with a Power Point cost of 3 or lower. The total cost of the power (plus any modifiers) cannot exceed the points spent to create it, but she may create multiple devices as long as she has the points to do so. This takes one entire turn, during which she can do nothing else but make a Weird Science roll at −2 (she cannot take MultiActions that turn). The inventor uses Power Points directly from her pool for the device, but once its initial Duration is finished (it cannot be maintained) it falls apart into its component pieces.

Background

Penelope was born to a well-off family in the Commonwealth. Her father is an academic at the University, her mother a homemaker and active socialite, and her uncle was in the RAF and is currently a member of parliament.

Early on, Penelope was fascinated by the ancient Terran histories her father studied, much to her mother’s chagrin, who wanted her to take an interest in the pursuits that better fit a young lady. Penelope was particularly fascinated by the Ancient Terran technology. She started to experiment and study glim-tech. She sat in classes at her father’s university, though wasn’t allowed to formally attend because she was a woman.

One of her other pursuits was flying. She was fascinated by airplanes. After the war, the opportunity emerged to travel to the colonies in Alyeska to serve as a pilot and also continue her studies of Ancient Terran technology. While there, her skills were such that she was drafted into the local RAF unit, and she is determined to prove herself.
