Hindrances
  • Arrogant (Major): Ivan is the man for the job. What job? Doesn't matter. He's done it already. He's the best pilot in the CS, hands down.
  • Vow (Minor): Serve the Coalition. They're doing the best they can to eradicate magic users and d-bees from the planet. That's a good way to get revenge on those damned Simvan who murdered his parents.
  • Loyal (Minor): The 17th is his new tribe. Ivan won't leave his tribemates behind.



Racial Abilities
  • Ambidextrous: Psi-Stalkers are Ambidextrous.
  • Animal Empathy: Begin with Riding d6 and animals treat them as one of their own.
  • Fast: Increase Pace by 2, Running by a die type.
  • Psychic Sense: Inherent detect arcana always active, using Notice. May track using Survival skill. Doesn’t work inside sealed armor or vehicles.
  • Psychic Vampire: Must consume 25 PPE/ISP per week or suffer a level of Fatigue. Every 5 PPE/ISP consumed restores one level of Fatigue. As an action at range equal to Spirit, Psi-Stalker makes an opposed roll against an injured supernatural target (must be Shaken or Wounded). Success, they consume Spirit in PPE/ISP from the target. Raise (or when target is incapacitated / killed) they consume all of the target’s PPE/ISP.



Edges and Iconic Abilities
  • Ace (HJ): Ignore 2 points of penalties to any Boating, Driving, or Piloting roll. May also spend Bennies to Soak damage for any vehicle they control, using the appropriate skill instead of Vigor.
  • Combat Ace (S3): Ignores MAP for making a Boating, Driving, or Piloting check and taking another action in the same round.
  • Alertness (HJ): Adds +2 to all Notice rolls.
  • Ambidextrous (race): Ignores penalty for off-hand attacks.
  • Brawny (hindrance): Increases Toughness by 1. Treats Strength as 1 die type higher when determining Encumbrance and Minimum Strength.
  • Brawler (PCO): Adds +1 to Toughness and increases unarmed / claw damage by 1 die type.
  • Bruiser (PCO): Adds +1 to Toughness and increases unarmed / claw damage by 1 die type.
  • Born To Ride (N3): When controlling a Normal Size vehicle with Exposed Crew, it gains Nimble (or Uncanny Reflexes if already Nimble) and allows a free reroll on checks to avoid going Out of Control.
  • Live To Ride (S1): When controlling a vehicle as in BTR, the hero is only hit on Called Shots (instead of 50% chance for Exposed Crew) and may deal +4 damage with successful Fighting attacks if he moves at least 6".
  • Controlled Hunger (N2): Must consume 30 PPE every 2 weeks to avoid Fatigue, and may drain friendly beings without violence.
  • Dodge (PCO): Unless the victim of surprise attack, subtracts 2 from all ranged attacks made against the character. Does not stack with Cover.
  • Elan (HJ): When using a Benny on a trait roll, add +2 to the total. Must use a Benny to reroll a Vigor check to gain the benefit for Soaking.
  • Martial Artist (HJ): Always considered armed, even when unarmed. Adds +1 Fighting when using hands/feet, and causes Str + d4 damage. If using clawed weapons, adds a die type to damage.
  • Martial Warrior (HJ): Increases Fighting bonus to +2 and adds an additional die type to damage.
  • Quick (FG): May redraw Action Cards of 5 or less. If Level Headed, first draw the extra card, then choose. If the chosen card is 5 or lower, may redraw.
  • Level Headed (HJ): Draws an additional Action Card and chooses which to use.

PFC Ivan Wolfheart - Background

Post by Ivan Wolfheart » Thu Mar 26, 2020 10:13 pm

Background
Ivan Wolfheart is a victim of a vicious Simvan raid on his tribe. His parents were slaughtered in front of him. A CS squadron interrupted the slaughter and brutally repelled the Simvan raiders. Vowing vengeance upon d-bees and awestruck by the ferocity of the CS heroes, he joined the army as soon as he was able. Upon graduating from boot camp, he was assigned to long range patrols due to his aptitude for the skycycle and his talents for the outdoors.
His squadron responded to a ley line storm and tornado outbreak, assisting with hearts & minds outreach and cleanup. The cleanup efforts were bedeviled by a band of raiders that moved into the territory. Swift action by the recon patrol forced their complete surrender.
Later in his deployment, his recon patrol discovered an encampment of dwarves dug into the foothills. His unit was called to breach and clear, which they did with savage efficiency.
Disaster relief was again their task, as a giant locust swarm began attacking local farmers. A combination of fire and poison drove off the huge bugs.
His prowess in combat saw Ivan reassigned to a combat patrol near Tolkeen. He spent 6 months of service on the outskirts, engaging in several combat actions. He earned, in total, 3 Crimson Hearts, 1 Iron Star, and 1 Prosek Medal of Valor. He was captured by Federation forces and spent 8 months in a POW camp until he was released in a prisoner exchange.
His combat tour ended with minor skirmishes before he was reassigned for additional pilot and driver training. He has since been reassigned, again, to the 17th SOG.
