Boris Boltski, Russian Groundsman!


Player Name: Supercape

Character Name: Boris Boltski

Power Level: 5 (75/75PP)

Trade-Offs: None


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


Alternate Identity:

Identity: Public

Birthplace: Moscow, Russia, Earth Victoriana

Occupation: Groundsman

Affiliations: Team Steam

Family: None alive


Description:

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. His family dead, he was taken in by the Steam family, and has served them honourably. Lord Steam could think of no better person to patrol and manage the grounds of Steam Manor. 


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: Blakely has a very stiff upper lip - nothing phases him, even in this new strange dimension. He always remains calm, efficient and gets on with his work. He is very polite and charming. He unwinds at the end of the day by playing his violin and a smoke.

He soon became a keen young motorist, even being sponsored to drive in races. He achieved some considerable fame, and when Lord Steam visited the young man in India, he soon snapped him up as his own manservant, paying well and giving the keen man an education. Personality & Motivation: Kamil is a devout Sikh, usually wearing a turban and carrying a Kirpan (Sikh religious knife) with him. He is softly spoken, and mild mannered, but comes alive behind the wheel, thoroughly enjoying racing and precision driving. He missed his large family, but takes great pride in his official diplomatic status.

Molly Dove, Housekeeper!
Player Name: Supercape Character Name: Molly Dove Power Level: 5 (74/75PP) Trade-Offs: None In Brief: Educated and refined housekeeper. Alternate Identity: Identity: Public Birthplace: Cambridge, England, Earth Victoriana Occupation: Physician Affiliations: Team Steam Family: Jasper Dove (retired army captain), Father. Mother deceased. Two brothers (one deceased) in the Army. Description: Age: 30 Gender: Female Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'7" Weight: 58 Kgs Eyes: Green Hair: Red History: Ms. Doves’ father was a working class lad who was a success in the army, paving his way for his children to have a good education. Ms. Dove lapped up the teachings and became an educated, refined and polite young lady, perfectly suited to be a top-class housekeeper. Always keen to improve herself, she jumped at the chance to serve in a brand new dimension! Personality & Motivation: Ms. Dove is a cheerful, energetic woman who insists on good manners and etiquette. She is demure but steely, a woman of her (Victorian) age. She also, despite her authority over the servants of Steam Manor, a creative person, taken to doing her own paintings of the grounds in watercolours as a hobby. She continues to try and improve her education. Molly is also very brave and courageous, and despite her “ladylike†exterior, she will muck in and has nerves of steel if needed.

Notes

The above minions are not designed for following Lord Steam on every adventure, but all might be called on! For example Kamil might be driving Lord Steam around, Blakely would follow him to major social events, and Boris would help out for outdoor investigations.

In keeping with rules, and progression feat for minions, they all have broadly similar abilities (general emphasis on working in a team, educated, diplomatic, etc).

They are also all "equipped" with a version of Lord Steam's steam-powered Revolver (Blast 4, Mighty, Subtle). Again, this doesn't mean they would walk around with that in general, but they could certainly equip themselves thus if need be.

I have standardised many aspects of them, combat wise:

+6 Attack, +6 Defence, +4 Fort, +4, Reflex, +6 Will. Steam Powered Revolved does DC 19 Toughness check.

Toughness I wasn't able to standardise (normally +0, Boris is +4 due to great Russian constitution!). Equally, Initiative was not possible to standardise.

However, it highly unlikely that they will all be together for a fight - perhaps one or two might be.

There's nothing here I have an issue with. Just don't bring in too many people from your crazy homeland, or the dimensional union will get on ya.

I think this will be it! (and to be honest these chaps aren't going to be popping up thread wise very often either).
