Team Steam!

Recommended Posts

Ok! Lord Steam is getting some groovy minions!

Team Steam are some Earth Victoriana chaps who, in game, he will recruit to aide his diplomatic status. They are PL 5-ish. None are going to usually feature in threads, but they may pop up now and again, and many have useful skills he can call on if needed. Blakely, his butler has already been in a vignette and indeed a thread, so it is about time he is properly crunched.

Advice and opinions please!

These minions are going to be largely, but not completely, flavour - not following him around on every adventure. Alfred from batman is the best example. However, they all have useful skills and could take out a thug or two if need be.

Common features are: +6 to Attack and Defence (largely for ease), Earth Victoriana Benefit, Teamwork 3, and Jack of all trades. Also they all (except Boris) have Equipment 2 (Steam Powered Revolver: Blast 4, Masterwork, Subtle), carrying (potentially) the same armament as Lord Steam himself.

Other skills vary, but in general they are about keeping Lord Steam's manor in good condition and being good manservants!

So....

Power Level: 5 (75/75PP)

In Brief: Burly Russian Groundsman / Gameskeeper / Stablemaster of Steam Manor.

Age: 45

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Mainly Caucasian

Height: 6'3"

Weight: 120 Kgs

Eyes: Brown

Hair: Brown-Red (Bald, but bearded)



History:

Boris Boltski is a tough as they come. Born to a farming family, serving briefly in the Russian Army, before eventually moving west through Germany and onto England due to some "misunderstandings" his family had with the local Tzar.

Personality & Motivation:

Boris is silent, and gruff, the least able of men to serve in a diplomatic capacity. He is very honourable and keeps his word, but is happiest when alone at one with nature.

Personality & Motivation: Kamil is a devout Sikh, usually wearing a turban and carrying a Kirpan (Sikh religious knife) with him.

Dr. Molly Dove, Physician!
Player Name: Supercape Character Name: Molly Dove Power Level: 5 (72/75PP) Trade-Offs: None In Brief: No nonsense medicine woman! Alternate Identity: Identity: Public Birthplace: Cambridge, England, Earth Victoriana Occupation: Physician Affiliations: Team Steam Family: Professor Gulliver Dove, Father (lecturer in anatomy at university), Mother deceased, no siblings. Description: Age: 36 Gender: female Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'7" Weight: 58 Kgs Eyes: Green Hair: Red History: Being the only child of a slightly oppressive lecturer at Cambirdge University meant nothing for it! A career in medicine! Whilst succesful and able, Dr. Dove always wanted something a little more exciting and adventurous, so after travelling the world and picking up many exotic diseases (now cured!), she jumped at the chance to join Lord Steam in a splendid new dimension! Personality & Motivation: Despite, or perhaps because, of her profession, Dr. Dove is always sprightly, and has no time for wasters or complainers. She always jollies people along and tells them to smarten up their ideas. However, when faced with serious illness, she takes it seriously, but calmly. Despite her chipper attitude, she is quite astute to peoples feelings and psychology, and takes interest in psychiatric matters.
