What most people notice about her first and foremost is rather obvious, she isn't human. A six-legged snake-like creature stands proudly, capable of rising up to use her front claws (very sharp!) as hands, at which point she almost resembles some kind of centaur. Her teeth are also very sharp, but tend to be hidden behind her lips, as she knows it's frighteing when she grins. She is near twice her height long, making for a rather scary beast indeed. Her eyes are rather small in comparison to its size, but membranous ears extend from her head to make up for this reduced sense. She is covered in thick scales that constantly change color, but typically settle on white, to make her easy to see coming and not startle. A detail that may be missed at first, due to the fact she presses them down, are two scaly wings resting on her back, bristling with muscle.


Besides this however, she has a very clear human spirit. Her face changes elegantly, making human expressions very easy for her. She also tends to lower her head to be level with others, despite speaking telepathically. Speaking of telepathy, this seems to originate from a duo of horns atop her head, shimmering golden when used to communicate and looking more like ornaments than a set of weapons. More decoration lines the back of her head and around her neck, manifesting as frills that change color like her scales and raise when she's aggressive (Goho have noticed only the pack leader has these frills, but further research is difficult to gain).



Scientists are always searching for a new dimension, whether it's due to curiosity or a need for knowledge. One such scientist was Gaho, and he had made his newest discovery. An Earth that received precious little light, populated with what seemed to only be shrubbery and reaching plants that reached as high as skyscrapers, desperate for light. Soon, however, he found there was life...just good luck finding it.


Beasts that silently crawled on the tops of the trees, beings that watched him solemnly before burrowing into the ground with nary a sound. He couldn't help but to be unnerved, most of these beings could likely kill him without a sound, yet they didn't. Were they scared? Curious? Or just waiting for a moment to strike? He wished he could get a better view of these creatures, study their behaviors...and he got his wish, only noticing the scaly beast once it was only a few feet from his face, and it was enormous, how had he missed it!? Instantly, he was frightened, it was clearly carnivorous, and he didn't want  to be its meal, so he ran.


He didn't get far, another of those creatures circled around him and blocked him like a wall, and there were more, though all were smaller than the leader. He had run right into a pack of them, what luck. Except, they weren't attacking. Their horns shimmered, and he got a vague sense of surprise and wonder in his head, not his thoughts. At the time, he didn't understand they had touched his mind, concluded he was sentient, and were attempting communication, and he screamed. He screamed in a place full of creatures adapted to no light, and everything heard. It happened so fast, one of the pack grabbed him and hauled him away, just in time for something huge to crash down behind him. Cries filled the air, silence broken as whatever the jagged beast that burst out of what felt like nowhere. One of the creatures fell, and another, the new monster adapting to whatever they threw at it. Finally, the leader threw something, and the monster dodged, and it collided with Gaho. Something alive, something that emanated fear and clung to him desperately. A tiny version of the leader, who grasped its enemy and refused to let go, tossing her head in a clear signal to go. The creature holding Gaho tossed him back the way he came, throwing itself into the fray, and Gaho ran. He ran all the way back to the portal leading back to his dimension, and only then did he remember that the child beast was still clinging to him. Nothing he did could free himself from its legs, and as the cry of the monster sounded ever near them, he cut his losses and threw himself through the portal with the young creature. It would be years later before he learned these beings called themselves the Lobisomem (why they called themselves a mythical creature usually know as a wolf eludes him, he supposes some words change in the dimensions), and the singular monster had been called Apex, essentially a criminal of that world. But until then, all he knew was that he was entrusted this creature, likely as he was the only being there with a means of escape. The creature was clearly frightened of him though, and the feeling was mutual. Their first interactions consisted of spotting each other in his house, where he had ran the moment he got back, and fleeing from sight. She was convinced her Mother made a mistake, giving her to this four limbed being, surely she had meant to pass her to Father. She didn't want him, she wanted her pack, her family! At the same time, Gaho didn't want her, convinced that once this beast grew hungry, it would take him as a snack. It couldn't believe he was some kind of guardian, surely it would get over its instinctive fear and devour him, it was a baby monster, just waiting for its time to strike...not a monster, I still hate you though...those were not his thoughts! Both realized at the same time, they were sharing a house with a frightened, sentient being, neither with an intent to hurt the other.


Thus begun a strange life for the two. While Gaho struggled not to go bankrupt under her ferocious appetite, she learned whatever she could about these strange things called humans, telling about her kind to Gaho whenever she could. Also, whenever they had a chance, they travelled back to her dimension in a futile attempt to reunite her with her pack. All failed, and other Lobisomem refused to take in the young creature. I'm not their family, she explained one day, they don't want me, they think I'm a pack with you, and I should be happy with even one family. Strangly, she never denied they were a pack. One day however, upon coming home, they found the exit of the portal littered with gashes and toppled supplies, and the creature froze. The same scent she had been separated from her pack permeated the air, Apex had come through. Immediately, the portal was closed and had not been opened since. Gaho would have thought the creature would be more upset about not going home, but she instead stuck close to him as they went home, insisting that he not leave her side. They were family now, after all. He couldn't exactly deny that, but he couldn't pretend to others that she was just some pet or experiment, no, when he introduced her to the civilians living nearby, she was Kaida...Adachi...the little dragon that was his daughter, yes, his daughter (yes, they got stares). If Apex showed his face, he'd find a Lobisomem ready to defend her pack, as small as it was.


Kaida never seemed to enjoy being around all other humans, being very short and curt and once even snapping at a particularly loud child. He scolded her for that. They weren't family, and she couldn't find a reason to be friendly towards them, Gaho worried she might never be accepted for such an attitude...and then she saved a life. An earthquake, spurred on by some small time villian, and a nearby building collapsed. People were under it, they'd die...and there was Kaida...holding up the building. She was the Lobisomem of this Earth, she declared to them, and just as Gaho was loyal to her, she'd be loyal to them. He asked her about this, and she simply shrugged. He had raised her and told her humans were good, and she could believe him, so she decided that she was good as well, and good creatures help the others...even if they are not family...even if she doesn't like them.


So she was called Lobisomem, a frighteing creature that would protect those that dared intrude on others.    



Personality & Motivation:

Kaida, as she's known by most of her civilian allies, is a very quiet creature that prefers to keep her conversations short and relevant. Dragging a conversation out with small talk is a very quick way to get on her bad side. This bad side will award anybody who irritates her short sentences, peppered with rudeness...she usually reseres  this for villains. She is also known as a rather "to herself" being, preferring her own company and close friends only (whether this is her personally or just a Lobisomem trait is still being researched). This rather teenage attitude belies her actual age, but it is unknown whether this is slowed aging or just her being herself. She talks in an odd manner, a mix of formal and informal that can easily use the word "thus" and "ergo" in the same sentence as modern curses.


However, despite her rather anti-social behaviour, a heroic spirit rather surprisingly jumps out. She'd rather take a hit than let any civilian or even another hero be harmed, and won't regret it for a second. Due to this, she tends to act first and think later.


Another trait that comes naturally to her is loyalty. Its her golden rule. Anybody who stands by her side can expect a very protective friend who repays the loyalty back tenfold. Generally, she extends this to normal people as well, all she knows is that a human took her, a hunting beast, in like a child, and now she has to protect the people. She just has to, she was raised that way.


Powers & Tactics:

Lobisomem possesses no fantastical magic, nor does she breath fire like the dragonic monster people think she is. No, she is just the best natural predator created, as far as she understands her planet. Her senses are top notch and honed, including an ability to teach heat signatures through pits on her snout.


Her claws are razor sharp, assisted by her obvious monsterous strength and additional limbs, as are her fangs. Her fangs also come with an additional perk, being filled with a thick liquid that burns through most material. Obviously, due to the nature of this ability, she avoids using it most of the time. She also has another form of attack, using her entire body to constrict and hold down a smaller enemy. Her two wings are also horribly strong, carrying her at a respectful speed, though not as fast as she can run, which is capable of catching most creatures that ran in her birth home. On top of that, she can speak with others without making a sound, though this cannot be used to connect too many people.


However, one of her greatest powers is one of the most unexpected. She is a very perspective being and very skilled at avoiding detection, especially in environents that resemble her birth home. This is because of her scales, which change color and make her fade into the background. Her body also allows her to crawl on surfaces, staying out of sight and striking once she got the advantage.


With this combination of abilities, her preferred method of attack is a sneak attack from a usually higher advantage. Following this is a vicious assault from a great beast, raging and grabbing anything near her and not stopping until her enemy is defeated, using her venomous spit as needed.


Power Descriptions:

Almost every single attack of hers is a physical blow, thus it is very visible and very obvious what she's doing. The only fantastical thing she does, spitting her venom, is also very obvious, being a clear liquid that releases black smoke on anything it touches.  Her claws clearly do blunt and cutting damage, alongide her fangs piercing, and her venom is acidic in nature.


The Light! The Light!: Being a creature highly designed to survive in a low-light environment, Lobisomem is very sensitive to light of any kind, even artificial. She can be blinded and unaware visually for any time spent in bright light.


Cold-Blooded: Literally. She cannot stand cold temperatures, and will quickly break down (scales freezing and breaking, slowing down and becoming tired) if forced in such conditions.


Sharp Toothed Smile: She can be incredibly scary to look at, undermining attempts to try and talk a situation down or assure someone that yes, she is trying to save you.


Apex Predator: Her nemesis, Apex, knows her scent and is dead bent on destroying her, in some animalistic greed to destroy competition. He comes from her home dimension, which contains more creatures like them but has yet to be accessed after his entry to this world.


Hunger: As a huge creature, her metabolism is very high. Any trap or temptation with food will require a powerful will to overcome, becoming more difficult to resist the longer she's gone without eating.

Well, I certainly do like the balancing out of stats and such, but have one question. Does the Additional Limbs cover all her limbs? Also, will I be able to buy Disintegration later? I just spotted this as well, can we change Low Light Vision to Infrared vision?

So, we are close.


You need to correct the stat bonuses for Int and Wis (15 in each is only +2).  Personally, I would make one 14 the other 16, but that is up to you.


The only other thing I see is you need to check your Skills based on the new Int/Wis bonuses.  Some are right, some are not.


Also, for your Stealth, 4 ranks of Growth is -4 Stealth, so that needs to be factored in.
