Special Abilities
Bite: Dog Boys bite for Strength+d6 damage and may bite grappled prey, see Natural Weapons in Savage Worlds.

Breed Advantage: A Dog Boy begins with the Breed Advantage Edge (see sidebar). The player decides what breed (or breeds) the character is influenced by.

Keen Sense of Smell: Dog Boys have an excellent sense of smell—gain a +2 to smell-based Notice checks and +2 on all Survival (tracking) rolls.

Keen Sense of Hearing: Psi-Hounds have exceptional canine hearing, +2 to sound-based Notice checks.

Low Light Vision: Dog Boys ignore Dim and Dark Illumination penalties.

Mutant: Dog Boys are awkward around non-human populations, and many are frightened by their association with the Coalition. Initial Reactions to them typically start at Uncooperative.

Near-Human Physiology: Engineered from Rifts Earth genetic stock, those unfamiliar with Psi-Hound physiology suffer a −1 penalty to Healing and cybernetics checks.

Oddly Built: The Psi-Hound project produces mutant canines with peculiar physical builds. Long snouts, digitigrade legs, tails, and other oddities mean most standard armor and clothing must be custom-made at double normal cost. Glitter Boy armor (and the Iconic Framework) and most human power armor is not an option.

Psychic Sense: Dog Boys have the inherent ability to detect arcana, interpreting it as a scent. This sense is always active. They use the Notice skill (+2 from Keen Sense of Smell) to detect the presence and location of anything psychic, magic, or supernatural. They can also use Survival (also +2 from Keen Sense of Smell) to track a specific entity or item fitting the above criteria. Psychic Sense doesn’t work inside sealed armor or vehicles. Every point of cybernetic Strain imposes a −1 penalty to Psychic Sense.


Restricted Paths: Dog Boys cannot take any Arcane Background using PPE, nor any Iconic Framework that includes it.

Wanted Hindrance (Minor): There is a standing Coalition bounty for bringing in "feral" Dog Boys.

Weakness (Ley Line Hypersensitivity): Dog Boys lose their Psychic Sense on or close (within 2" or 4 yards) to a ley line. Ley line storms cause a level of Fatigue from severe headaches and distress as for a psychic (which does not stack if they have the Arcane Background).

Languages Known: American (native, d8)
Add one die type to Vigor:
Survivalist: Begin with Athletics d6, Common Knowledge d6, Notice d8, Stealth d6, and Survival d8.
Woodsman: Begin with the Fleet-Footed and Woodsman Edges.
Mars Advances: Wilderness Scouts begin as Seasoned heroes.
Well Travelled (Hero's Journey): +2 on all Networking rolls to contact and gain assistance
