Background: Rumiko Nihara is nearing the end of her tenure as a Clan Nihara ninja trainee. Her training began as soon as he was able to walk. She is a Voice specialist. She has crosstrained in Chi Wizardry, but has no notable aptitude for it. Her Assassin skills are weak, as well. Details on ninja skill trees are in Penny Nihara’s entry. However, as Voices go she is considered as much of a prodigy as Penny was back in the day. She was sent to study under the new grandmaster (Penny) after she killed the last one. She’s been around for a couple of years, but explicitly isn’t a part of NPC Investigations. Penny’s been trying to retrain her and eliminate some of the extreme ninja-ness out of her. Like the seeing herself as a tool and not a person thing. It has been somewhat easier with Rumiko, but still success is mixed. Until then, she is at the grandmaster’s service. Whatever task she assigns, Rumiko will complete or die trying. And that’s about it, really.

Rumiko doesn’t have an NPC Investigations role. She is a Nihara Clan Trainee under Penny Nihara.

 

Powers & Tactics: Rumiko is a ninja. She is well trained in the arts of stealth, espionage, and assassination. All of her ability comes from training. She has no superhuman powers. The bit of Chi Wizardry she can do doesn’t count, as anyone can use them with enough training and practice. She had only three powers in regular rotation. A healing art, a vanishing art, and a disguising art. She routinely carries a ninjato, a huge amount of custom shuriken, and smoke bombs.

 

In a fight, Rumiko remains a ninja. As a Voice with no aptitude for being an Assassin, she’s not ever meant to be in real combat. Even her Chi Powers are focused on non combat applications. With that said, she does have stealth skills and weapons should she need them. Plan A is to use Kunoichi Vanishing Art to get into stealth for a sneak attack. If that’s not feasible, she’ll stick to shuriken from range until the enemy forces her into melee and thus swordplay. In swordplay she can feint or demoralize lesser foes easily and often. More than one way to get that sneak attack. She can stunt other Chi Powers, but she’d be improvising as Chi Wizardry isn’t her primary focus.

 

Personality: Unlike her fellow trainee Kazuma, Rumiko definitely does have a personality. Unfortunately, it’s a chameleonic one, molding to fit circumstances. She is as much of a Clan Nihara loyalist as Kazuma, and on the inside sees herself the same as he does. A tool to be used, not a person. Her Voice skills, however, hide this very well. She is whoever she needs to be, whenever she needs to be them. So instead of having no personality, she has every possible one. There is a conflict, however, and it is one as old as the Voice skill tree itself. To be anyone, one must first be someone. The first step in understanding a given person’s wants, needs, and desires (so one can manipulate or impersonate them) is having wants, needs, and desires of one’s own. The true test of a Voice’s training and discipline is in resisting them in favor of obedience to the clan. So far, Rumiko has not failed. However, two years away from home and clan have worn away at her iron discipline. She has recently begun to display (gasp!) consistent personality traits. A love of sweets, especially dairy. Pride in her curvy figure. A little ditziness when “off the clock”.

Background: Ricardo Alvarez only ever wanted to be a cop. The badge, the gun, the authority, the responsibility; he wanted it all. Being poor, Latino, and the child of illegal immigrants, he had the crazy idea he might be able to change the system from the inside. Luckily for him, he turned out to be a supremely gifted natural detective. Unluckily for him, he was still Latino and born to illegal immigrants. For every good cop who listened when he talked, there were two of the “old school” who disregarded him for one or both of those two attributes. It drove him crazy. But there wasn’t anything he could do about it, so he put up with it. He finally picked up some respect working on a Russian mob task force, but as the saying goes the only reward for work well done is more work. And there are always veterans who feel threatened by a rising star. Politics, man. Tessa Mcleod could use some back up, anyway. So Ricardo (Rick to his friends) was assigned to be the second liaison officer to the private detective agency NPC Investigations. There was a laundry list of suspicious activity from that group, and the brass wanted an eye kept on them. Nothing attached to Penny Nihara, but she was sketchy as it got. A blank past, rushed naturalization, stealth and combat skills like ex-special forces times ten? Yeah, suspicious. The brass had never quite forgiven Carla Perkins for telling off both the Chief of Department and Chief of Detectives. So yeah they were gonna keep an eye on her in the most obvious way possible. Meanwhile, what the hell was a blue blood Richie rich like Edwin Christian doing slumming it here? With an erratic personal history that all but screamed drug addict? And the big one? Their former employer destroyed their former office building. Hayden Street is still wanted for that. Even if NYPD were to believe the three had nothing to do with it, Street still might try to make contact. All that, and the little ways they’re suspected of skirting the law during cases. They wanted to assign another detective specifically because Tessa Mcleod’s behavior was concerning. They had reason to believe that she wasn’t being entire truthful. Like how she didn’t disclose she knew Edwin Christian, or how she pulled strings to get the assignment in the first place.

Rick’s new role enabled him to actually use his skills as a detective instead of a political animal, something he greatly appreciated. He did not appreciate being shoved out of the way, but once again there was nothing he could do about it. So, once again, he simply put up with it. It’s been a few years, and aside from one incident (Penny’s naturalization records pulling a disappearing act) he hasn’t had to choose between the agency and the NYPD. Tessa’s departure did make him the sole liaison, and the brass don’t seem particularly keen to replace her or him any time soon. This is really beginning to grind his gears. The department has bigger fish to fry than NPC Investigations, yet they’re keeping one of their top investigators sidelined because of politics. Rick’s had just about enough of this particularly brand of bullshit.

Rick’s NPC Investigations role is Junior Associate. He does not accept pay, as he is also their official liaison to the NYPD. He has the ranks of Sergeant and Detective Second Class.

 

 

Powers & Tactics: Rick has only one superhuman power. Psychometry, or the power to “read” object and see events that have happened to and/or using them. It’s not admissible in court, but it’s proven helpful on many occasions. As said in Background, he’s an excellent detective. Few clues get by him, and few perps can withstand his interrogations. That’s really it. He’s not a bad hand to hand combatant, and he’s a very good shot with his Heavy Pistol.

 

In a fight, Rick is a police detective with a gun. He calls for backup (if he doesn’t have enough) and fires if fired upon. He is legally authorized (because he’s a sworn police officer) to kill in self defense or defense of others. It ain’t exactly Plan A, but again he’s a cop. He’ll respond to lethal force with lethal force. He can technically power stunt, but has no idea what that is or how to do it.

 

Personality: Rick is…well, kind of a handful. He’s always had both a keen nose for and low tolerance of bullshit. He’s not combative about it, per se. He’s a pretty nice guy, all things considered. But he’s not the kind of man who’s going to shut his eyes or his mouth to injustice. It’s part of why he became a cop in the first place, to fight injustice in and out of the system. The world ain’t a simple place, and he knows that. He’s learned the fine art of the political compromise, and there aren’t words for how much he hates it. But you can’t effect real change if the allies you need hate you. You also can’t effect real change if you quit before you get enough power to do it So he grits his teeth, keeps his mouth shut and does his job. There aren’t words for how much he hates having to do that, either. But the fact of the matter is that he’s not gonna be another Carla Perkins. He likes her. He respects her. They’ve got similar personalities, so they get along pretty well. But…she could never tolerate any of the job’s politics. Still can’t, as a matter of fact. It drove her away from her dream job. No matter how frustrated he becomes, Rick swears he’s not gonna let that happen to him. Even if lately he’s dreaming about screaming obscenities at his Captain and bouncing his badge off the man’s face.

Background: Tessa Macleod is a most mysterious woman. She blew into NYC one day, joined the NYPD, and became both a Lieutenant and Detective Second Class. Somehow. Every time someone goes to find the people who hired or promoted her, they’re out of town on vacation. On assignment undercover. In a meeting across town. Always unavailable. All her listed references check out…but they’re always just as unavailable for direct communication. You can always leave them a voice mail, or send an email. But you will never, ever, get one on the phone or see them in person. She swears it’s completely innocent. Just strange coincidence. She, of course, is lying through her teeth. The truth is far stranger.

 

The original Tessa Macleod (Teresa Maria Julieta Margarita Macleod y Amarista) was born in on April 24, 1828 in Spanish California. She had many adventures, married a wonderful man named Gavin Ramsay, and raised four children (three of these were their blood; but only two of these were Gavin’s). She loved horses (especially golden palominos) and family. She was one hell of a woman. But like all humans, she grew old and tired. She died right as 1899 turned into 1900. This was the end of her story, but she would not be the last Tessa Macleod. The turning of the centuries is a powerful thing, both cosmically and magically speaking. People don’t typically die at that exact moment. They just…don ‘t. And of the very few that do, almost all are tragically ordinary and unremarkable people. Tessa Ramsay, who (with Gavin’s help) had founded a merchant dynasty that would endure for decades (if the Great Depression didn’t manage to destroy it), was not ordinary. So while the original went to her well earned eternal rest, dimensional duplicates rippled out into the multiverse.

 

The current Tessa is, of course, one of them. She appeared at age 16 (on her birthday, no less) with no background, and no explanation. She remembered her entire life. She remembered dying. But this was clearly not the afterlife. She was dressed in the simple peasant clothes she had chosen on that long ago birthday. This was not, however, either rancho. Or even San Francisco. Where was she? Why was she here? And why could she hear what people were thinking? This is the part where I would say she spent the next fifteen years figuring all of that out and building a life of her own in this strange new century. Except that would also be lying. The unique circumstances of her creation result in the periodic alteration of reality to fit her inside of it. And for her, time moves…jerkily, sometimes normal speed and sometimes at warp speed. So she really doesn’t actually know how she because an NYPD detective second class, rank lieutenant. It just kind of…happened. Also she’s apparently a member of a secret society of telepaths devoted to stopping telepathic crimes?

 

This was the point where she found an opportunity to save Edwin Christian from himself, and slowly become more and more integrated into events at NPC Investigations. She isn’t quite sure when she left the NYPD. Reality burped again. And how she got kidnapped by aliens is lost in a warp speed time block. Still…there’s things she can do. People she can help. Only God knows what happened to all the other telepaths. Tessa does not.

Tessa’s NPC Investigations role is Junior Associate.

 

Powers & Tactics: Tessa is a metahuman. See Edwin Christian for basics there. She is a psionic with telepathic powers. She can read minds, alter perceptions, assault psyches, infuse emotions, and all the usual telepath tricks. Her powers are quite subtle, to the point where only other telepaths can notice her doing anything at all. Her finest trick, in her opinion, is her Telepathic Translation. She’s also developed outstanding combat ability in general. Some of it was training, and some of it was unintentional telepathic osmosis. From her detective days, she still carries a masterwork nightstick, a masterwork heavy pistol, and assorted gear.

 

In a fight, Tessa borders on unstoppable to ordinary opponents. Her Telepathic Veil means they literally can’t detect her, and so her first attack is devastating. Clairsentience and Hallucination are used to gain advantage after that. She prefers to use her mundane weapons, but if they can’t get the job done she’ll start with Emotion Control, move on to Stun and finish (if necessary) with Mental Blast. She does, of course, have access to the full range of telepathic power stunts, and will use them on demand.

 

Personality: Tessa remains a hell of a woman, with a strength of will that few people possess. She is a fiercely independent, driven woman. She is kind hearted and empathetic without succumbing to sentimentality. She is quick witted and passionate, yet has a strong sense of propriety. These qualities, however, are a double edged sword. She is fundamentally incapable of bending to withstand life’s trials. She will always chance the breaking point rather than admit she’s having any troubles.

Background: Elinah Monroe was normal once. Then she dated Edwin Christian. His powerful mind’s subconscious desires overwhelmed her weaker mind, slowly warping it so that she turned both willing and pliant. The whole process felt incredible, but on some level she knew what was happening to her. Her mind fought against it, and the struggle threatened to drive her insane. Fortunately, Tessa Mcleod intervened before things got too far out of hand, as referenced in Edwin Christian’s entry. And it was Tessa that helped her begin recovery, only to find something very curious. The process had triggered Elinah’s own metahuman powers. She could now both see and speak with ghosts, poltergeists, and all sorts of spirits. They simply would not leave her alone. It was enormously bothersome. Also, people were beginning to think she’d gone insane.

 

And then one spirit had the enormous gall to possess her. And get stuck. Just such a dick. To manage the chilly powers she got from the spirit, Tessa recommended NPC Investigations’ junior rotation. What the hell, it got her out of the house and away from the people who thought she needed to be institutionalized. Of the entire rotation, Elinah’s in the top five in total cases worked. And nobody thinks she’s gone insane anymore. For obvious reasons, she has never worked with Edwin Christian.

Elinah’s NPC Investigations role is Junior Associate.

 

Powers & Tactics: Elinah is a metahuman. Details on that can be found in Edwin Christian’s entry. She is a psionic, with the ability to see and speak with ghosts, poltergeists, and other spirits. She also has uncontrollable visions of past events.

She is also possessed by a ghost, giving her the supernatural ability to project immense cold. Chilling Field isn’t so much armor as a energy draining field that drains the power of attacks. She can blast foes with damaging cold, create ice shapes, and numb pain. And, of course, she can telekinetically move things as many ghosts can. Said ghost is conscious and capable of attempting to aid her. How well that works can vary some.

 

Elinah doesn’t get into many fights, and thus hasn’t developed much in the way of tactics. Between Icy Blast and Poltergeisting she can defeat most opponents without resorting to anything more fancy. Numbing Chill can keep her or a wounded ally functional until they can be seen by a doctor. And she’s beginning to discover just how useful being able to make shapes out of ice is. Barriers are one thing, but she’s only just thought of cages and the like. She can technically power stunt, but has no ideas at present.

 

Personality: Elinah was, and to some extent still is, a trust fund party girl. But time slows it’s march for no one, and so she’s slowly maturing away from that shallow and vapid creature. Though to be fair, that process started during her initial recovery from being addicted to Edwin Christian’s touch telepathy. She’s changed into a responsible adult, if a somewhat self centered and vain one. Think of Harmony, from the Buffyverse, only less…painfully stupid.

Background: Sofia Harmon didn’t exist three years ago, and the only other person on earth who knows that is her “sister” Sonya Harmon. Who is under a geas to say nothing of it because the Summer Queen of Faerie has a deep seated obsession with making every member of her Court obey her. Even if they were never meant to obey her in the first place. Hold up. Let’s take it back futher. The Elemental Lord of Earth had a daughter. This was not unusual in and of itself. The Elemental Lords periodically had children just like anyone else. The unusual part was that this daughter was an enormous pain in everyone’s ass. Granted, her parent spoiled her rotten. But she was simply the worst spoiled haughty brat anyone could possible imagine. The Summer Queen decided to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. Sonya Harmon (humanized Elemental Lord of Fire) owed a debt, and the Queen wasn’t finished making her life a living hell anyway. So presto, the spoiled haughty brat was now Sonya’s kid sister, and she was not permitted to speak of it. The mortals would not know the difference. The newly minted Sofia was Sonya’s problem now. Either the brat would shape up in the mortal realm, or Sonya would capitulate to the Summer Queen. Either result was acceptable. What the Summer Queen did not anticipate was the sheer bloody minded stubbornness of the two women. Sonya will capitulate & Sofia will drop the attitude sometime after the heat death of the universe. And so after butting heads for a while, they both came to realize the source of their problems was the Summer Queen. Can you say, “alliance”?

Sofia’s NPC Investigations role is Receptionist.

 

Powers & Tactics: Sofia Harmon has the soul of a greater earth elemental. Specifically, one with the capability to become the Elemental Lord of Earth. As such, she’s a hell of a lot stronger, tougher, and heavier than the relatively fragile young girl she appears to be. She also has significant mental control over rock and soil, able to will earth and stone to move. She can burrow, fly on a rock, lift and throw earth and stone at range, cause localized earthquakes, and even shape earth and stone as if they were no more than soft clay.

 

Tactically, Sofia is completely straight forward. The vast majority of her opponents literally can’t hurt her (being the rough equivalent of unpowered humans with guns), so she closes to melee range and punches them. Hard. She is capable of power stunts with her array, but in her utter arrogance does not deign to do so.

 

Personality: Even two years in the mortal realm could not change the crown princess of the earth elementals. She is still an entitled, haughty, arrogant, spoiled brat. One would expect that such an exterior would be hiding significant insecurities, but no. This is who she is. With that said…she has learned tact and that there is such a thing as the right time and place for certain things to be said. No more constant whining. She has developed a sense of noblesse oblige. Meaning that in her clear and obvious superiority she has a responsibility to aid the hapless mortals. But make no mistake. This does not mean she likes them. Empathy is not her strong suit, though she tries. She doesn’t like seeing people sad or hurt. She does seem to be a good person aside from her glaring personality flaws.  Look, she’s a tsundere, all right? Albeit one free of any romantic entanglements.

Background: The story of Immortia would make anyone feel utter rage. She apparently had her powers from birth. She cannot die. Literally cannot. And anyone within 100-ish feet of her cannot either. The infamous Agency discovered this. Her parents were swiftly disappeared, and she became a lab rat. Immortality is a rare and precious thing in the Phoenixverse. Mere agelessness is incredibly difficult to attain. The price for it is often very high indeed and, considering it can be removed with the stroke of a weapon, it is far less useful than what Immortia possesses. Which is why the Agency’s scientists began their slow campaign to figure out the limits, source, and reproducibility of her powers. On the first point, they found the 100-ish foot limit. They discovered her Regrowth, as well. As for the rest…they got nothing. And they tried everything. Crushing. Slashing. Piercing. Burning. Freezing. Irradiation. Electrocution. Asphyxiation. Poisoning. You name it, they tried it. In hundreds of different ways and combinations. Her limbs and organs grew back. Not particularly fast, but they grew back. So cutting them away now and again (for more experimental material) wasn’t an issue. It wasn’t like she would die, after all. The Agency scientists never bothered with even the most basic of sterilization procedures, aside from enough to protect themselves and their data. It didn’t matter if she got an infection or any kind of sick, after all. It wouldn’t kill her, so she’d recover eventually. And who cared about scarring, anyway? She didn’t have to be pretty to be useful. So they reached out into the darkest of magics. Gods long forgotten, and for good reason. The most unethical of genetic and biochemical science. The most advanced technology known to mankind. Nothing worked. She grew from toddler to grade schooler as a test subject, not a person. Then, during a routine transfer to another facility, she met Agent Zero.

Frank Hammond had been an excellent soldier. He had served the United States well during his terms of service, and after mustering out he served the private military corporation he worked for just as well. Unfortunately, said PMC was owned by the Agency. Frank was getting on in age a bit, and they wanted to keep him around. So a magical division murdered him and bound his soul to a sandstone golem. His wife and daughter were told he was killed in action. They buried his body none the wiser. A person’s memories are stored in the brain, not the soul. So it was trivial to program the new Agent Zero to perform his missions as eagerly and well as the old Frank Hammond had. Only now he was super strong, bulletproof, and tireless. The years blurred into each other. Agent Zero would’ve served his masters until someone finally managed to fully destroy the soul gem at his heart, except for one routine subject transfer.

Immortia simply sat and did nothing as the transport van rolled along the road. Agent Zero looked at her without any need to blink or change his gaze. Unbidden, memories bubbled up. Memories of someone who wasn’t him, doing things he never did. This was strange, as Agent Zero did not know he had ever been anyone else. Perturbed for the first time in years, he request to be put on guard duty for subject Immortia. As there were no missions urgently demanding his attention at the time, his handlers agreed to it. There had been some…concerns…over how mindless he had become over the years and so it was good to see him taking a little initiative. Thus it was settled. Agent Zero was Immortia’s guard. He took her to all her procedures, and brought her back when they were finished. He was within 100 feet of her at essentially all times. And then something entirely unexpected happened. Something…shifted…in his soul gem. The perfect soldier’s conscience returned. A tiny piece of Frank Hammond had been, impossibly, resurrected. When they came to get Immortia for her next procedure, Agent Zero went rogue. In full action hero style, he killed every Agency combat asset in the building and took the 8 year old girl out of there into the open world. Thus began the tale of Agent Zero and Immortia.

It was not, however, anywhere near where it ended. They spent the next decade on the run. Sometimes they got captured and had to escape. Sometimes there was just a hellacious fight. Other times it was ducking out of town just ahead of pursuit. Or the Agency sicced local law enforcement on them. You know, the usual fugitive stuff. He taught her how to fight. He taught her how to read and write. But most importantly, he treated her like an independent person and not an object to be used. He gave her a name of her own. As time went on, little bits of Frank Hammond kept floating to the surface. It was as if Immortia’s powers were trying to resurrect a dead man who didn’t even have a body. But neither of them knew they were on a time limit. Even with magic, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Agent Zero’s sandstone form was powered by the magic charge in his soul gem. He could heal himself, something strange for a nonliving thing like a golem, by absorbing sand or finely ground rock (which is what sand is). This took a little energy from his soul gem’s charge. Before, his charge could be casually topped up by Agency magicians at any time. But as a fugitive, this was not available. After a decade, he began to run out. His healing power sputtered and stopped working. He started, for lack of a better term, malfunctioning in various ways. Forgetting things. Spacing out. Like he was sliding into become a mindless automaton. Or worse, an inanimate lump of rock. They searched for a magician who could help them, but were unable to find one. At last, Agent Zero’s power ran too far down, and the unthinkable happened. His body fell apart into a pile of sand. Immortia, heartbroken, took his soul gem on the run alone. Soon afterward, the Agency found her again. Without her super strong, bulletproof protector, she was captured. On her own, there was no hope of escape. All was lost.

Or, not. Agent Zero knew Hayden Street. Knew he was a magician (but not which one, of course). He had arranged, very early in their fugitive days, for the private detective to take over for him if the golem ever became incapacitated. Of course, eleven years later, Hayden Street no longer existed (having been replaced by his true self, Roger Simon). So the file and notification, through an annoyingly long process (somewhat expedited by Radical Dreamer of the Exiles), ended up on Penny Nihara’s desk at NPC Investigations. None of her colleagues and friends had ever seen her so coldly furious. She tracked down the location of the lab that had Immortia (conveniently it was right in NYC) and shinobi assassin’d all 25 Agency assets inside. Shortly afterward, Tia Hammond was the latest junior associate at NPC Investigations, with Harmony Perez working on how to get Agent Zero up and running again.

Tia’s NPC Investigations role is Junior Associate.

 

Powers & Tactics: Immortia is completely and utterly immortal. Literally nothing done to her physical existence can cause her demise. Her soul cannot be removed from her body under any circumstances. The Agency magician who tried had the magical power backlash on him. The explosion was quite impressive, and wiped the entire compound off the map. This does not mean she is immune to damage or mortal concerns. Quite the opposite. Though her body may wither or even be completely destroyed, if given time to recover she will come back from anything. Anything. Seriously. The Agency literally nuked her once. Her body seemed to be instantly incinerated. They thought she was dead. But as the smoke cleared there she was, suffering from horrifying burns and more severe radiation poisoning than any being that has ever lived. But in time she got better. And this was one occasion where Agency scientists saw fit to administer medical care. Not out of concern for her well being, but their own. Can’t experiment on a lethally hot girl, after all. The proposal to test her against a star was soundly rejected (how would they retrieve her?), as was a proposal to expose her to Ebola (she’d produce hazardous material by the gallon and how do you get it out of her?). Her immortality also applies to every living thing within approximately 100 feet of her.

The source of her absolute immortality remains unknown. It is beyond anything mutant & metahuman powers can do. There isn’t a god that can both give someone this level of power and hide their signature energy this well. If technology did this, it’s so far beyond being indistinguishable from magic that it might as well be magic. Speaking of, the magic power required to permanently do this to someone on the level it has been done outstrips every known magician combined. Not to mention, her immortality seems to be a literal law of the universe. The only universes where she has actually died are the ones where the laws of reality itself had broken down.

Aside from her immortality, she carries two devices. One is Agent Zero’s Soul Gem, and the other is a High Tech Rifle stolen from the Agency years ago. Agent Zero used it as his primary weapon after acquiring it, and made sure she was also qualified in its maintenance and use. The Soul Gem provides her with significantly increased physical strength and durability, as it did to Agent Zero’s sandstone body. It required a charge of magic power to do this on its own, but worn by a living person can easily function off their excess life force. She also has access to Agent Zero’s tactical knowledge and planning abilities. She does not have any access to Frank Hammond’s soul. She can only feel her surrogate father figure’s presence inside, and feel it twitch in response to her presence. The High Tech Rifle (it has an official name, but that’s from the Agency and screw them) has five regular settings. The Infinity Blaster (the base setting) never seems to stop firing, especially when used repeatedly. Seemingly endless energy bolts assault the target, penetrating even the thickest of armor. The Force Field Projector snares the target in tight energy bindings. They regenerate, restrict the target’s airways, and cannot be broken by outside force. The Freezing Ray is similar in that it snare the opponent in bindings, but these are made of ice and the target is forced to resist the bitter cold of the beam as well. The Petrification Beam is exactly what it says it is. It turns those targeted with it to stone until such time as something else undoes the effect. And lastly, the Tranquilizer Shot is slightly misnamed. Modeled after the Infinity Blaster, a seemingly endless barrage of sleep inducing energy waves gentle ease the target into dreamland, thus not inflicting actual damage.

 

Tactically, Immortia favors the Infinity Blaster as her bad guy defeater of choice. However, the Force Field Projector and Freezing Ray have proven to be very useful over the years, and the Petrification Beam can remove troublesome enemies entirely. If disarmed, she has her boosted strength from Agent Zero’s Soul Gem and a great degree of skill in unarmed striking. She is also not too proud to simply run if too outnumbered or outmatched. Immortality does not mean that injuries don’t hurt.

 

Personality: Immortia is, well, damaged. She’s twitchier than a squirrel on meth. She jumps at shadows. She sleeps poorly, awakening several times a night. It’s not specifically because she’s afraid (though she is). It’s because paranoia rapidly became a survival trait while on the run. She clings to Agent Zero’s Soul Gem as her only solace in a cold and cruel world. The Agency was utterly, utterly ruthless in pursing her and so she simply doesn’t get attached to anyone. Soon enough they’ll either be killed or betray her to them. Even Frank couldn’t last forever, and he wasn’t alive to begin with. She carries herself like the desperate, terrified survivor she is. With that said…there’s something different about Penny Nihara. She’s seen Carla’s, Edwin’s, Sonya’s, and even Harmony’s type before. But Penny reminds her of Frank. Killers with honor. That’s why Tia Hammond is the newest member of the junior associate rotation.

Background: Eiko Takanouchi’s life has been…complicated. She was born (under a different name and without a surname as was common in the period) near the start of the “Warring States” (or Sengoku) Period in medieval Japan. She was a peasant, orphaned as a consequence of one of the many battles that wracked Japan at the time. A reasonably well to do Shinto shrine took her in and trained her as a shrine priestess, or miko. She aided her teachers by battling demons in both oni and yokai flavors. She proved to be surprisingly capable, but in the end she was only mortal. A particularly persistent and powerful demon killed her. Her priestly allies put together a last ditch ritual to save her. Someone so worthy should be reincarnated immediately, if for no other reason than to bring back such a potent champion. Unfortunately, due to said demon’s interference and the struggle of the priests to resist his influence, the spell’s effect was…delayed. By nearly five centuries.

Eiko was born in Tokyo in 1982. Without the shrine priests around (simple time causing a loss of records and the Age of Science greatly diminishing their already small numbers) she did not remember her prior life, instead growing up a normal girl. Until, after her first day of high school, she fell down an old well rescuing a puppy. When she crawled out, she was in Sengoku era Japan, in a different well, 50 years after her original self had died. Where a half demon hybrid waited for her. Her return and need for a defender had been prophesied. What followed was three years of off and on adventuring, as the wells worked both ways, but only for her. The two (and the allies they acquired along the way) battled many demons. She met her former self, resurrected as a soulless (but not mindless) puppet, and started to slowly regain her memories of that life. Her former self was both ally and enemy in equal measure, culminating in a tremendous battle against the demon who had killed her the first. The victory was a total team effort, and even then it cost her former self her existence. The two merged together to form one (finally) complete being. Not long after, the magic of the wells began to fade. Eiko was faced with a terrible choice. Her wacky band of friends and the love of her life (said half demon hybrid), or her family, normal friends, and modernity? The former made it easier for her by telling her to return to her life. She was a reincarnation, not the same person. Go home, Eiko. Her love (being a young member of a demonic species with formidable longevity) promised to meet her when she returned to Tokyo. Or rather, Edo, as it was named at the time. With tearful final goodbyes made, she went through the well/time portal one last time. Naturally, this was when things went sideways again.

 

Eiko Takanouchi, the real one, did not return to Tokyo at all. She did not return anywhere for 18 years. Roger Simon, nefarious deathbanned wizard (in those days he still existed as Hayden Street) sought an equal disguise/alternate persona to his own for his partner, Eve. His spell grabbed hold of Eiko mid transit and placed her in stasis, while Eve slipped into a perfect copy of her body and mind, and assumed her life. Even when Eve discarded the persona, the spell remained active on Eiko. Until Eve was Dusted, breaking the spell entirely. Unfortunately, this mean that Eiko was Dusted as well. But when that was undone, both Eve and Eiko reappeared beside each other. Such a mess. Eiko’s only goal at working for NPC Investigations is to get enough money to fly home to Tokyo and find out what the hell has happened to her life. Also, because she was in magical stasis, she hasn’t aged a day and for her no time has passed.

Eiko’s NPC Investigations role is Junior Associate.

 

Powers & Tactics: In her day, Eiko was one hell of a miko. Her skill with a bow and her divine magic arrows defeated many a vile demon. And her Blessed Outfit was practically a suit of plate mail available on demand. She was even as skilled with a blade as the most renowned samurai. She could even communicate with the kami (spirits/gods/more complicated than ol’ EP can handle in a quick aside like this one) and perform magical rituals to gain their assistance. However, times change, and her abilities that were once nigh miraculous are now merely excellent. She routinely carries three types of magic arrows. Blazing Thunder can blind and deafen. Blessed Chain binds the opponent in divine magic chains. Holy Lightning is, of course, a barrage of divine lightning in arrow form. In addition to her bow and quiver, she also carries a masterwork katana.

 

In a fight, Eiko’s arrows work just as well on humans as demons. Blazing Thunder and/or Blessed Chain are Plan A, so that Holy Lightning hits all the harder. These can, of course, fail. So Plan B is simply Holy Lighting Arrow itself. If disarmed of her bow, she still has her katana as well. She is very much used to (in both lifetimes) working with a partner or even a full team. So solo she’ll be far more cautious than one might expect. She can power stunt by having alternate divine magic arrows. All of the usual exotic save attack effects are on the table, with the ranged extra. She’s even used a Ward effect (Mind Control with the Conscious, Effortless, and Area Burst Extras and the One Command (Don’t Enter Area) and Range (ranged) Flaws) in the past.

 

Personality: Eiko is a very kind young woman, and highly empathetic. She is probably the most purely heroic among NPC’s employees. She is very honest, essentially incapable of deception. As a hunter of demons, she has an absolute intolerance for immoral and/or evil acts. With that said, she judges a given being based on their acts and not their bloodline. Humans can be as evil as any demon, after all. While she is usually calm and compassionate, when sufficiently provoked she can be reckless and short tempered.

NPC in the Freedomverse

 

This isn’t hard at all. First thing, ignore the whole Icons (Eternity War and Endgame) stuffs. Obviously, nothing like that happened in the Freedomverse. Secondly, they’re a private detective firm that employs superpowered beings. They based out of New York City, so they probably swing down to Freedom now and again on cases. As previously stated, they’re explicitly not superheroes. They may end up playing the role from time to time, but it’s not their main schtick. So there’s no real conflict or alliance with any of the Freedomverse’s heroes. At least, not as such. There are probably heroes who think they’re wasting their gifts. And heroes who are suspicious of the sometimes shady and/or less than perfectly legal ways they resolve cases. Other than that, though? Fine and dandy.

 

Differences between Phoenixverse canon and Freedomverse canon: You know, I don’t know if there’s that much explicit differences? The ninja clans are probably under Dr. Sin’s thumb, or maybe they’re Katanarchists. But I don’t like either of those things. Japan and China historically have never gotten on well, and it’d take some drastic, noticeably public measures for the very Chinese Dr. Sin to retain control of the very Japanese ninja clans. Doesn’t sound like how either would roll. And maybe one of the clans is the Karanarchists, but it’s not Clan Nihara. The difference between metahuman and mutant doesn’t exist, so all metahumans are just mutants in the Freedomverse. The Fae are thinly sketched out in Book of Magic, and the Courts not all. I believe our member Gizmo’s done some work in that area, but he’s not put it in the Guidebook at the time of this posting so I dunno what it is. So Sonya and Sofia should be fine as is. Can’t think of anything else, nope.

 

As for how NPC Investigations get along with Freedomverse heroes, well…they don’t have a lot to do with them, normally? I mean, from time to time or in major crisis situations sure, but otherwise the agency’s just doing their jobs mostly. Superheroics and private detecting aren’t the same line of work, so there’s not a lot of interaction. The Freedom League knows they exist, certainly, but they’ve probably never met any of them. Claremont kids have a higher chance of having met one or two of them, but that’s because Claremont kids get into shananigans. AEGIS, on the other hand, they’ve most likely had a lot of dealings with. They get some of their work from law enforcement, after all, and I sincerely doubt that AEGIS would just ignore such a valuable resource. Even if they do have to pay a reasonable fee. And of course, there’s no friggin’ way they’re not keeping a wary eye on Penny Nihara for both themselves and UNISON. The files on the rest of the vets are probably a bit thick, as well. In fact, James Scott’s spy career is probably with AEGIS.

 

So You Want To Join NPC Investigations?

Congratulations, you’re a member of the junior associate rotation. You may pick up cases at your leisure. What, you thought this was gonna be super detailed or something? Nah. That’s the whole point of the junior associate rotation and their mostly anonymous nature. Just don’t get cocky and think you’re instantly tagging along with the partners and/or senior associates on every case. Mostly you’ll be working alone or with other junior associates. Honestly, this is best used as plot fuel or merely how you pay the bills. Because I will say it one more time. NPC Investigations is a private detective agency, not a superhero team.

Yas & Friends

 

This is quite literally Yas, her husband Tobias, and all their friends. It has all of the original Seawings, the later unofficial addition in Coyote, and even a few old friends from the first time Yas saved the world. The old crew and the new crew, all together. They’re basically still the Seawings of old. They just don’t go out on missions as often, as there’s a whole Guild to do that and they’ve got other things to deal with. Like kids. Yas and Tobias have Lucia, Rikki has Ting, Portia and (kind of) Coyote have Lucien and (again, kind of) Raven, Lucy and Willie have Charlie (and the younger ones), and Kaikoa has his responsibilities to his village. They also operate as a collection of heavy hitters when the other members of the Guild get in trouble they can’t get out of. And between Portia, Raheed, and Lucy they can hit like a freight train. Which isn’t to undersell the others, they can put on the hurt too, but not like those three. But yeah these are the veterans and OGs. They’re also the most recognizable members. Yas had two world saving adventures under her belt, and so she’s rather famous. Willie’s a politician these days in addition to having represented Palau in beach volleyball on the world stage, so he has a measure of fame as well. Rikki and Portia are known Seawings, Raheed is the only huge friggin’ dragon around, and Coyote is well, Coyote. That high of a Charisma score makes you famous wherever you go.

 

Additionally, those at PL 12 have earned a special free Benefit feat that slightly alters the rules on Extra and/or Extraordinary Effort for them. They’re detailed below. Raheed is omitted as he is a summon and thus cannot use Hero Points on his own.

 

Guild Member

Feat Name

Effect

Yasmine Sakaguchi

Master White Magician

Power Stunts of her White Magic are free outside of combat. They do not cost Fatigue.

Portia Rousseau

Demonic Potential

Extra Effort to increase a power’s ranks works as normal. However, Extraordinary Effort comes with an option. Normal effect, or apply the effects of Extra Effort to all Powers (even Permanent ones).

The Pacific Stranger

Wildly Untapped Potential

Extra Effort to increase ranks of Teleport is twice as effective, meaning it increases ranks by 4 instead of 2. This also applies to Extraordinary Effort, meaning with both Max Teleport rank is 18.

Coyote

Ultimate Trickster

May use Extra Effort to automatically succeed on a Bluff or Diplomacy check. This cannot be done in combat (meaning in initiative). If done with Distract or Fascinate, this is a Sustained (Lasting) effect and thus can only be broken by a successful Will save.

Lucy Hasegawa

Master Elemental Warlock

Power Stunts of her Elemental Warlock array are free outside of combat. They do not cost Fatigue.

Background: Yasmine Sakaguchi saved the world more times before her 21st birthday than most professional superheroes ever do. Twice, for the record. Then she was an outlaw treasure hunter with the Seawings. Then they drifted apart as she got married and had her daughter, Lucia. Next she helped revitalized the Seawings into an Adventurer Guild instead of a quasi superteam. She’s technically the Guildmaster, but in practice she lets the guild mostly run itself. Notable exceptions include every single friggin’ time a mostly male, mostly conservative government tries to put the mostly female, mostly liberal Guild under its thumb. Granted, the Guild is probably the biggest collection of super powered combatants outside of Europe or North America. And their respect for national borders and sovereignty can be a little…nonexistent. With that said, Yas in her role as Guildmaster doesn’t mind cooperating with national or local officials. They can submit mission requests just like anybody else. It’s just when they start to try to turn the Guild into their personal army or start trying to enforce dress or behavior codes that Yas puts her foot down. The Guild is meant to be independent of all political and law enforcement structures. And Yas will absolutely walk into a majority Muslim nation’s Parliament while they’re in session in her sleeveless v-neck blouse, denim booty shorts, and knee high boots. With the two enchanted pistols holstered behind her. So that she can defend the Guild’s independence.

 

Powers & Tactics: Yasmine’s White Magic powers have grown. Her ability to summon Raheed has grown to the same degree. She has even recovered the ability to summon other beings, but rarely bothers as Raheed outstrips them all. She, in many ways, now truly a master White Magician. White Magic is, as previously stated in her first entry, a power that lets her control the functions of life itself. She can heal, confuse, sicken, paralyze, and stun as her usual assortment of non summoning spells. Her Enchanted Pistols have been retooled to be more powerful than ever before, and now even incorporeal beings aren’t safe from them. She even performed a White Magic ritual to toughen her body so she wouldn’t have to rely so much on body armor or dodging.

 

Tactically, Yas still dislikes using her offensive spells. Out in the open, she’s more likely to summon Raheed (so she can ride him) and start blasting away with her Enchanted Pistols. But sometimes she had to fight in interior spaces, or she’s disarmed, or they’ve just really managed to piss her off. Which is quite an achievement. She’ll throw her spells around with impunity then. Dislike does not equal hesitation. She’ll also whip out Inspire in team combat, effectively bumping her allies up two and a half Power Levels for a round. This tends to turn the tide of combat rather rapidly.

As for power stunts, only her Dazzle 10 (Visual & Auditory; Secondary Effect, Accurate) isn’t represented with her usual spells as it quite frankly isn’t one. She has a Fatigue 10 (Ranged, Secondary Effect, Accurate) as well, but that’s her “a friend can’t sleep” spell. Not so great in combat, that one. Her other spells are variants of her normal and previously mentioned spells, swapping Secondary Effect for Burst Area, or “buff” spells all of which are Boost with Total Fade. She can Boost things like Leaping, Impervious Toughness, Speed, or Super Strength. Raheed, as stated, is her strongest summon. It is the other summons thatmake up the majority of her remaining potential power stunts. Magnan (ice), Fuego (fire), Sylphie (wind), Molion (earth), and Thunderbird (electric) are PL 8 Energy Controllers, basically. They are all Summon 9 (Heroic). Alexandra (life) and Chronos (time) are also energy controllers, but PL 10. They are Summon 12 (Heroic). As previously stated, Raheed outperforms then all in combat, so she doesn’t summon them very often, even as power stunts. With that said, they have utility in one situation or another (Alexandra’s a phenomenal healer and Chronos can boost the speed of anyone or anything for example) so every now and then she’ll call on them. She has one last power stunt that she’s only used once, to turn the tide against a Lesser Demon Lord. Master White Magic: Divine Spell: Holy. Blast 12 (Autofire, Penetrating 9). It is under the Divine source descriptor, and not her usual Magic one and is (obviously) a Holy effect. She will only ever use it again under similarly desperate circumstances.

 

Personality: Yas is a sweetheart. Kind, empathetic, compassionate, brave, humble…look, pick a heroic personality trait and she probably has it. But anyone thinking she’s a pushover has a big reality check coming their way. She may be polite about it, but Yas is a grown woman with a will of her own. And while she may listen to other people’s ideas, once she decides something it’s final. She is a consummate master of Politeness Judo. She loves her husband Tobias and daughter Lucia very much, and is very protective of them. Not to a fault, but it can get in the way sometimes.

Background: Rebecca Heskett has helped save the world more times before her 21st birthday than most professional superheroes ever do. Twice, for the record. Then she founded the Seawings and was an outlaw treasure hunter. Then they drifted apart as Yas got married and had a daughter, Lucia. Next she helped revitalize the Seawings into an Adventurer Guild instead of a quasi superteam. More recently she’s finally gotten a steady boyfriend in Oliver LaRouche. Their relationship is an open one, but for them it works. Lastly she’s picked up a daughter of her own, sort of. Deep in an ancient ruin, she discovered a kid android and named her Ting. It means “enduring” or “timeless”, and both fit the apparently extremely advanced Ting.

 

Powers & Tactics: Rikki is still a low level speedster, tech specialist, and thief all in one. She’s twice as fast as she used to be, most likely as a result of reaching physical maturity. But it’s her tech that she fights with. Her Tech Daggers are improved. The increased power of their attack comes from her improved strength, but they are considerably sharper than they used to be. Her Techie Grenades are more powerful now, but remain relatively low level. They’re meant to make goonsweeping easier, anyway. Capture Grenade is adhesive netting, Concussive Grenade is knocks people away from its point of detonation, Ninja Grenade is a glorified smoke bomb, Razzle Dazzle Grenade is a high power flash bang, and Tech Bomb is just that-a big ol’ bomb. The big change is that now she carries bag of random inventions. Some sample ones are on the sheet, but honestly anything could be in there. There just aren’t any direct attacks or anything that’ll break her PL caps.

 

Tactically, Rikki favors her Tech Daggers in close combat. With that said, she’s not above through some Grenades to thin out numbers. She’s also a consummate team player. A favorite combo is her using both Feint and Taunt, following with Set Up so a heavy hitter (usually Portia, but there’s been others) can lay the foe out flat. Outside of that she’s unpredictable and more than a little reckless against foes she knows she can beat. She is rather unique in that despite having Power Attack as a feat she doesn’t use it that often. Her only power stunts would be from her Grenade Belt. Sleep Gas Grenade (Fatigue 5; Ranged, Cloud Area), and Stun Grenade (Stun 5; Ranged, Burst Area) are examples of this. Doesn’t happen a lot, though.

 

Personality: Rikki is…Rikki. Energetic, impulsive, reckless, relentlessly cheerful, etc. She’s the kind of thief that’ll steal both your money and your heart in one go. She’s a young woman who exists without even the concept of shame. This isn’t a slight on her by any means. She’s never once cared what anyone thinks, as long as she’s happy with the result. For Rikki, life is all about thrills and having fun. Other things can take precedence temporarily, but that always comes back to the fore when they’re finished with. She cares a lot for Oliver and has become quite attached to Ting. While she’ll help them if they need it, neither one will hold her back from living her best life.

Background: Portia Rousseau was a member of the French Special Forces out of Tahiti. Their final training mission in a cave went wrong, and everyone but her squad died. She herself was badly wounded and fell into the sea. Her powers activated, without which she would have died. At loose ends after that, she joined the Seawings. She was there when they saved the world, a vital part of it in fact. But like all good things, the team started to come to an end. They drifted apart. Yas got married an had a daughter. Rikki was busy rebuilding her home.  Portia found herself finally straightening out the loose ends of her life. She technically went AWOL, so she was in military court for a while. She received the equivalent of a dishonorable discharge, but no jail time. Extenuating circumstances to begin with, now she had superpowers (not permitted to serve as superpowers are generally treated like WMDs; there are treaties about it), and she’d been operating public as (mostly) a superhero. After that she joined in revitalizing the Seawings into an Adventurer Guild instead of a quasi-superteam. Through all of it she and Coyote have remained together. For a certain definition of together, anyway. Then she adopted a kid. Lucien was an orphan with a demonic atavism of his very own. He was having problems. Headed down a dark and dangerous road, especially for someone his age. So she took him in and gave him her name. So far it’s been rocky but okay. Lastly, she caught Raven (the Native American animal spirit) in her and Coyote’s bed. Coyotes was also there, but Raven was the only one who was naked. So Portia stabbed her through the heart before she could explain. Strangely, this did not kill Raven but instead reverted her body to that of a child. So Portia and Coyote kind of have two kids. Ish. Sort of. Their lives are so weird.

 

Powers & Tactics: As previously stated, Portia has a demon somewhere in her family tree. That day in the cave activated the atavism in her DNA, and it’s only grown in strength since. Before she was just pretty strong and tough, but not she’s legitimately a mid-tier powerhouse. Albeit one with excellent combat skills and an indestructible size changing black sword that goes elsewhere when she’s not holding it. She doesn’t need to breathe and isn’t susceptible to poison, disease, or even environmental issues. She’s stopped aging. Her senses have grown more inhuman. She can see through any concealment, illusion, and even full cave darkness. She’s friggin’ bulletproof, even against most vehicle mounted guns. All of those, however, are either what she originally had or improvements thereof. What’s new is that she can manifest leathery demonic wings to fly with. She’s not especially fast.

 

Tactically, don’t let that +10 attack bonus fool you, Portia’s terrifying. She uses Accurate Attack and Improved Startle liberally, so she can hit anyone. She even switches from Dark Sword to unarmed just to keep foes guessing. And there’s always Stunning Attack foes with more Toughness than Fortitude. Like those in heavy armor or sporting forcefields. Other than that, however, she’s a straightforward melee attacker. She has never power stunted. She’s capable, technically, but her standard abilities serve her well enough that she doesn’t.

 

Personality: Portia is one hard woman. Her first impression is cold, a little sadistic, and easily annoyed. It’s not…inaccurate, but it’s also not the whole picture. She was never a warm and cuddly woman, and her demonic atavism has had an effect on her psyche as well. With that said, she has a heart. She cares about her friends and to a lesser extent her guildmates. She’s deeply loyal and practices caution in all things. She’s just not particularly…demonstrative…with her emotions. And the demonic atavism has both quickened her temper and awakened an enjoyment of causing pain. She does her best to keep both in check, but it’s not easy. Fortunately, she has the entire guild to help. Her relationship with Coyote is an ongoing source of drama that Lucien and Raven have complicated further. She loves him, even if she’d never admit it.

Background: Raheed is from a parallel world where dragons reign supreme. And of all of them, he is their High King. Mightiest in combat and savvy enough to deal with any plots against him. But really what he’s best known for on our world is the White Magicians who make contracts with him. These contracts allow them to summon him into our world, though his power is constrained by the power of the White Magician. In modern times only one White Magician’s contract remains valid. Yasmine Sakaguchi’s contract. There’s not much more to it than that.

 

Powers & Tactics: Raheed is a gargantuan sized dragon. He is absolutely massive, and has the strength and durability to match. He stands at the pinnacle of both in the Guild. He breathes fire, flies with his wings, and has a tail. Complicated, his powers are not. He can see in the dark, into the infrared, and further away than normal humans. He can even identify individual scents to a degree superior to humans. He has one power that is unrelated to his draconic nature. As a summoned creature, he can speak any language his summoner does. As a side note, despite Yas essentially being a Master White Magician, she’s still not summoning him at his full power. His full size, certainly. Power, well…the one time she used a ritual to augment her summoning spell (it was one hell of an emergency)…he was clearly operating at least two and more likely four power levels higher than usual.

 

Tactically, Raheed is at first a simple creature. Smash, smash, and smash some more. Maybe breath some fire if smashing doesn’t work or isn’t available right this moment. Or if they’re being especially annoying grapple and crush (as this will not cost him his Dodge Bonus due to Grappling Finesse). This is because he’s so friggin’ strong and tough. Most opponents even if he misses by 4 or less still have to make a Reflex save to halve (avoid w/ Evasion) rank 12 damage. With opponents that are at least Large (or ones that manage to make him fail a non Reflex save by 5 or more), however, he changes tactics. Instead of free swinging without any regard for his opponent’s abilities, all his combat feats come out to play. Improved Startle is the order of the day, followed by full +5 All Out Power Attack. He does not forget he has Accurate Attack, though, and Improved Demoralize also has its uses. Grappling also remains on the table. With all that said, the one thing he never forgets to do is stay within one move action’s Flight range of Yas so he can Interpose for her if needed. He also will not hesitate to do it for any of the Defense shifted members of the Guild, should they be attacked without the benefit of their Dodge Bonus. As the only guild member with Ultimate Toughness (granted he’s using HP from Yas to make use of it), he knows that he can tank just about anything in a pinch. And there’s nothing like the sudden appearance of all 64 feet and 125 tons of pissed off dragon king to make the opposition reconsider their life choices.

 

Personality: Raheed has a distinctly alien mindset to humans. It’s probably easiest to think of him as an animal (a carnivorous predator, to be specific) uplifted into sentience. It does him one hell of a disservice, but it’s as close as humans can get to how he thinks. Humans are lesser beings to him. It’s not even ego. The limited version of him Yas summons outstrips virtually the entire species. So what humans feel and think is mostly irrelevant to him. Because he can eat them if they annoy him enough. Not that he would, but you understand. Otherwise they’re just a source of amusement. However, he’s not fool enough to ignore the evidence of his senses. Individuals can always be exceptional.  A few of the guild (Portia, later Samorn, and most recently Dallas) have earned his respect as warriors. And Yas has his respect as a fellow living being. He’s quite fond of her, really.

Background: Tobias was originally nothing more than a dream within a dream. A last fragmented hope, cast out into infinity and against all odds, rewarded. He doesn’t know where he was for a while after he…went away? What do you call it when you almost cease to exist? Anyway, the next sensation he knew (having lacked even the ability to think) was the water around him. The beach, near Koror. He was back, somehow. Yasmine was here. And that was enough. He…was never quite a Seawing, not officially. He married Yas, they had their daughter Lucia, and everyone just started…drifting apart. It was sad, but that was life. Then came the revitalization into an Adventurer Guild and yeah, why not? He joined up too. What was he gonna do, not help out his wife and mother of his child? Ha, no. Don’t be goofy. So yeah. He’s just kind of around, providing a helping hand to Yas and the Guild when necessary. Doing the dad thing with Lucia. Mentoring the younger sword users like Charlie. Honestly, he does more for the Guild with emotional support and running the beach volleyball league than he does on missions or jobs.

 

Powers & Tactics: Tobias doesn’t have any superhuman powers. Never has. He’s just a freakish athlete with a powerful magic sword. Faster movement speed, further jumping, more resistant to extreme temperature, and less of a need to breath. He’s great at falling without injuring himself, and even wall running. His magic sword Ohana was a gift from Willie Teriong. It belonged to his deceased brother, Charlie (who Willie’s son was named after). Its enchantments make it more powerful and able to hit even incorporeal targets at full strength. That’s it.

 

Tactically, Tobias takes full advantages of his athleticism, Move by Action’ing between attacks. Improved Acrobatic Bluff and Improved Feint help set up stronger Power Attacks when necessary. When fighting alongside heavy hitting allies, he’ll use Set Up to give them a better chance of hitting. Improved Acrobatic Bluff + Taunt is a hell of a thing. Powerful enemies (like if his PL is clearly two more more below the opponent) he’ll use Defensive Attack to reduce his chances of being hit. There’s also Tricking and Tripping, but those are less used. He can’t power stunt.

 

Personality: Tobias is…Tobias. A good man, with endless courage. He’s normally cheerful and relaxed, but when the situation gets serious so does he. He’s unexpectedly empathetic, even if he doesn’t have any especially strong insight into people. He’s a hero for sure, but humble about it. What’s he’s not humble about is his beach volleyball prowess, and he shouldn’t be. He spent his childhood running away from his problems, and so now he tends to face things head on. He loves both Yas and Lucia with all of his heart.

Background: Oliver of Rouen (LeRouche came later, as surnames weren’t quite a thing at the time) was a young Frankish knight who volunteered for the First Crusade. He fought honorably and well, killing his fair share of Moslems for the greater glory of God and all Christendom. It was a different time, and the Oliver of today…well, it’s not that he regrets his actions, exactly. He was a product of his times and environment, and was among many thousands of knights just like him. At the time what they did was more or less considered the upright and moral thing to do. There were unscrupulous knights, of course, and even outright villains. People were still people. With that said, if he condemns himself he condemns many good men he personally knew. His feelings are quite understandably mixed. At any rate, his story did not truly begin until he and a few comrades found the cave. A tomb of a wizard from long ago, it held many wonders but also a terrible curse. Oliver himself took nothing; however his comrades secreted away a few trinkets. In fact, he had counseled against taking anything. When they returned with a pack horse, the cave was nowhere to be found. Over the following few years, the curse began to take its toll on the knights. Oliver, as he was no thief, was the least affected. They ceased to age and were afflicted with a terrible wanderlust. None of his comrades survived past the Second Crusade. But Oliver of Rouen safely returned home to his young wife, without any idea that his aging had ceased. They had children, and time simply rolled on. People were curious about his youthful looks, and the questions had mounted to the point where he willingly joined the Third Crusade to escape them. He did not know it then, but the wanderlust also played a role in this.

The Third Crusade was, as history records, kind of a disaster. And also where Oliver learned he could teleport. Nothing like trying to get away from Saladin’s forces in the desert and suddenly finding yourself on the shores of the Mediterranean. A knight, past 50 but still with the youth and strength of someone 30 years younger. A man of faith, who has had it questioned, now finds himself with a true supernatural ability he does not remember accepting. He was understandably upset. Oliver of Rouen was recorded as having died in the Third Crusade. He was not seen again in Europe for a century, so that everyone who knew him would be dead. And even then, he dropped the “of Rouen” from his name and so was a man without a hometown.

What was a man to do, being unable to age yet able to travel more effortlessly than anyone he had ever heard of? Indulge that wanderlust, of course. With that said, his story was not quite so simple. Wars, love, loss, and enough drama and action to fill a dozen doorstopper novels has been the life of Oliver LeRouche. Name a major historic event, and he was most likely in the thick of it. Even simultaneous occurrences, as befits a man who can be on the other side of the world in mere moments. He has been involved in incidents that will never make the public history books, either. Just about everybody “in the know” about such events knows him. He stood on the surface of the moon before Neil Armstrong was born. He sailed with Columbus, not that Columbus was aware of his presence. He discovered the truth behind the Roanoke colony disappearance with the Celtic Princess Keaira. As The Desert Stranger, he’s been a vital cog in the superheroic West since Americans first started moving out that way. He was a member of the original Seven Soldiers in the Wild West (featuring the ageless samurai [for he still serves a master even now] Jin, the wizard Cowgirl Janey, and the first man to call himself The Human Rocket). There was also the Pacific-based superhuman strike force in World War II (with the future Icon The Shining Guardian, Jin a second time, the second Human Rocket, and pre-experiment Wilder [of the Javier Academy]). And now, as The Pacific Stranger, he works with the Seawings Adventurer Guild. His life has been many things, but boring is not one of them. He has no living children, but the same can not be said of grandchildren and further down. He visits them, sometimes.

 

Powers & Tactics: Oliver has two superhuman powers, four devices, and nine centuries of linguistic experience. The former is a complete inability to age and the ability to for a single instant, make two points in space effectively fuse. The effect moves him from the first point to the second quite literally instantaneously. To a disorienting degree to anyone not used to the suddenness of it. Obviously, he’s used to it. Still, the rapid attacks other teleporters can do are beyond him, as rapid teleports of that nature disorient even him. Both are permanently imbued magical abilities and are not spells.

The devices he’s owned the longest are his Enchanted Revolvers and his Weathered Poncho & Bandana. They were gifts from Cowgirl Janey. The Revolvers are just that. Incredibly powerful revolvers that never need reloading. The Poncho & Bandana serve as body armor, and protection from environmental effects, disease, poison, and suffocation (hence how he stood on the moon without dying immediately). They are, of course, magical in nature. The Alien Plasma Grenade Launcher and Crusader’s Blessed Sword are much more recent acquisitions. The former is exactly what it says it is. It is technological in nature and launches potent plasma grenades. He picked it up during an interstellar adventure, after taxing his teleportation powers beyond their limits out of sheer curiosity. It’s a little bit broken, and thus the power of the Grenade cannot be adjusted. The Sword is a divine object, and no it’s not his original sword. That sword in is a cave on the Moon, where no one will likely disturb it. It was no special powers, he’s just sentimental. This Sword is a holy relic, carried by a First Crusader and passed down through the ages until it ended up in a small French Polynesian village where its family line had finally come to an end with a shot down WWII fighter pilot. The Seawings (with Oliver), thwarted the attempt of an evil cult to grab the Item of Power, and discovered it was a holy relic and thus useless to the cult anyway. In gratitude, the village elders gifted the Sword to the one white man present (because he looked the most like the final owner, you see). And so the one time Crusader had a Crusader’s sword.

Nine centuries of linguistic experience means he’s basically an omniglot. There are few languages on Earth he isn’t fluent in, and those he can pick up through a few minutes’ conversation. It’s kind of amazing, actually, but it’s not a superhuman power. Just a little aptitude and a lot of practice.

 

Tactically, Oliver is kind of terrifying. Centuries of combat experience. The ability to attack from almost any angle. And no fear of falling whatsoever. He prefers ranged combat with his Enchanted Revolvers, but he’ll clean house with the Alien Plasma Grenade Launcher when necessary. He hasn’t had to rely on his swordsmanship since the Age of Firearms was well underway, and thank God for it. There are entirely too many creatures that can make mincemeat out of a man in melee range. Still, it makes for a nice surprise on occasion, and there are foes that can be harmed much more effectively by Divine descriptors.

 

Personality: Oliver is a mystery wrapped in a conundrum inside an enigma, and he prefers it that way. Oliver LaRouche is a consummate Frenchman. Wine, cheese, baguettes, and (of course) sensual seduction. The Desert/Pacific Stranger is a walking stereotype of an American cowboy. If it’s a cowboy cliché, he’s probably doing it. And those are just his two most common personas. He’s had nine centuries to develop them all, so there’s a multitude to pick from. A chivalrous knight out to rescue the damsel fair. The gruff mentor and dispenser of sage wisdom. The happy-go-lucky party animal. He even mixes and matches. Combining the Frenchman and the cowboy is certainly a sight to behold. In all of them, however, there is a common thread. A sense of honor that will not permit him to take unfair advantage of someone else. They must consent before he takes any liberties of any kind, and any refusals are completely respected. The one persona he rarely shows is his real one, and for good reasons. Oliver of Rouen is tired and not a little sad. He is a very old man who has seen everyone he’s ever loved grow old and die. Sometimes without the growing old part first. And he knows that even those he cares for now will eventually be gone. All are dust on the wind. He could wallow in it, but he chooses to live for today. Anything else would be an insult to those who have loved him and wanted him to go on without them. Rikki has developed into his first great love of this century. One day soon, perhaps, he will tell her as much.

Age (as of Jan 2019): At least 12,000. Possibly over a million years. (chronological), Mid 20s (appearance)

Height: 6’ 1”

Ethnicity: Native American (plains tribe variant)

Hair: Black

Eyes: Dark Brown

 

Background: Coyote was not born. He simply abruptly existed one day. There are many, many stories of him in the various mythoi of North America’s native tribes. Some are true. Some are lies he told. Some are lies told about him. At any rate, there he was. The First and Highest of all coyotes. Feared by some, worshiped by others, etc. He took lovers when he felt like it, discarded them in the same way. Probably had some children along the way. He wasn’t keeping a head count as who cared? Mortals passed away so quickly, after all. This was all well and good, but thank the Great Spirit (or whatever you call it, human) for the Industrial Revolution. Now he could go places and meet people so much faster. Ah, such good days. And then he met Portia, and the rest, well…Coyote doesn’t tell stories for free, you understand. Ask someone else if you want to know. Or you could make a deal with him. …no? Haha, such wisdom for a mortal. Okay, you get this for free. Coyote is a member in good standing of the Seawings Adventurer Guild. He is still in an extremely sexual relationship with Portia. He is a father figure (for good or ill) to Lucien. And he really, really is enjoying seeing his old rival Raven humbled and in the form of a child. It is wonderful.

 

Powers & Tactics: Coyote is a Native American animal spirit. This means all of his powers are divinely bestowed, even though he is not a god himself. And because he’s Coyote, that means he’s basically a canine totem. A mid tier powerhouse with a spectral bite attack and the inability to age who can converse casually with coyotes. Not any canine species, just coyotes. Yeah, he can run faster and leap higher than any unpowered human, and his sense of smell is kind of amazing (he can target enemies in combat with it, detect supernatural effects, and nobody can hide from it), but the real action is in his Trickster powers. Speaking any language. Charisma to burn. Can’t be grappled, snared, or otherwise trapped in one place. Bending probability itself in his favor, and his strangest one. Multiexistence means that there’s a lot of other Coyotes. This is not Duplication because it’s something that is, not something that he’s actively doing. And he has no command over them to begin with. They are their own beings with their own minds and wills. So they don’t like…show up much, but occasionally he can get some information or a favor out of one of them. How many other Coyotes are there? Even he doesn’t know. It’s somewhere between 10 and 7 billion. Probably closer to the lower end of that scale than the higher.

 

Tactically, fighting Coyote is a completely terrifying prospect. He has a virtually unbeatable Bluff check for Feinting and Taunting, as well as the Improved version of both. And that’s if he doesn’t just use Combat Diplomacy to talk whoever wants to punch him in the face into not doing that. He’s also got Improved Distract and all of the cap shifting combat feats. He hits exactly as hard as his lover Portia does and is just as tough (albeit using Defensive Roll to get there), but with his Bluff he’s always underestimated until it’s too late. And his Uncanny Dodge is Olfactory instead of the usual Auditory. Meaning that when everyone else gets caught out because they can’t hear the enemy coming…Coyote has already smelled them out.

 

Personality: Coyote is a combination of poor impulse control, narcissism, and an instinctive knack for making poor life choices. He is a goddamn walking disaster of a being. He is a liar and a trickster. It is literally his nature, and as he isn’t strictly speaking a human being, he cannot defy it. This does not, however, mean that he can’t twist his nature to suit his own purposes. He just has a knack, between his immense charm and significant intellect, of blunting consequences. He’s never outright malicious, but his tricks have left a trail of carnage and shattered lives in the past. He isn’t evil, per se, but disrespect what he is (as opposed to his personality, dress code, etc) at your extreme peril. Regardless of how he appears and behaves, he is not a mortal in any way. Human lives, in the abstract, mean absolutely nothing to him. There is real darkness in him. He is, after all, the First and Highest of a species of scavenging canine carnivores. His highest loyalty will always be to himself. With that said, his true feelings for the Seawings and the rest of the Guild are…complex. He cares what happens to them, to varying degrees. Portia being the one he cares for the most. But he is not a hero, their father, or their personal bodyguard. He is Coyote, and anyone who trusts him that completely is a fool who deserves what happens to them.

Background: Lucy Hasegawa was one of Yas’s protectors on her trip to sacrifice herself to save the world. Obviously, things went differently than anyone was expecting, thanks to Tobias’s courage and Yas’s own strength. In the aftermath, Lucy settled down with Willie Teriong and had a son. They named him Charlie after Willie’s deceased brother (and Lucy’s first love). They have other kids, but Charlie’s the one who gets screen time. Lucy was always a big sister figure to Yas, as they grew up in Koror together along with Willie. Lucy settling down and Yas ramping up (meaning joining the Seawings) put some distance into the previously close relationship. This was not out of any animosity, just over being in very different places in their lives. When Tobias returned and Yas married him, the two settled in Koror in the same neighborhood as Lucy and Willie. The close relationship resumed, especially after the birth of Yas’s daughter Lucia. So much so that when the Seawings were revitalized into an Adventurer Guild, Lucy agreed to Yas’s request to join it.

 

Powers & Tactics: Lucy is an Elemental Warlock. It’s a fancy title for a regular magician who specializes in combat spells. And boy does she. Fire, Ice, Wind, Earth, Lightning, and many more are at her fingertips. In rapid fire, burst, or –kinesis form. Her power is completely ridiculous. And her powers are so great that they’ve turned her eyes red. They used to be dark brown, but not anymore. For defensive purposes, she had her enchanted Strapless Gothic Lolita Dress. It provides more damage resistance than your average armored vehicle, and helps her dodge attacks a bit. That’s it.

 

Tactically, Lucy isn’t particularly subtle. She has both Improved Demoralize and Improved Startle, and can increase her mediocre accuracy with Accurate and/or All Out Attack. She even has Defensive Attack for when she’s a bit outclassed and wants to avoid taking too much damage. She cannot, however, Power Attack at all. With all that said, her go to is dropping damage until the enemy is down and out. She has a plethora of power stunts, Some are all nasty spells like Death (Drain Con 15 [Ranged, Autofire]), Toxin (Blast 15 [Alt Save Fort]), and Petrify (Transform 15 [flesh into stone]). So they only get used when regular damage won’t do. But she’s a master of the elements, so Create Object 15 (Ice/Earth/etc; Continuous Duration), Snare 15 (pick an appropriate Extra), or just about anything a given Element Controller can do is on the table. She’s specialized, not incapable.

 

Personality: Lucy wears leather and lace. In black. That should tell you most of what you need to know about Lucy. Strong, tough, and stern exterior. A soft, warm, and caring heart. Lucy spent most of her childhood being the adult in the room, and so she never quite learned how to loosen up and have fun. She’s the type who thinks they have to be sensible and responsible all the time. She’s grown out of it a bit, as time has gone on. But she’s still more likely to chastise shenanigans than participate in them. She genuinely loves Willie, Charlie, and Yas. Rikki & Kaikoa she still considers good friends, as well.

Background: Willie Teriong was one of Yas’s protectors on her trip to sacrifice herself to save the world. Obviously, things went differently than anyone was expecting, thanks to Tobias’s courage and Yas’s own strength. In the aftermath, Willie settled down with Lucy Hasegawa and had a son. They named him Charlie after Willie’s deceased brother (and Lucy’s first love). They have other kids, but Charlie’s the one who gets screen time. He grew up with Yas and Lucy, firmly in the loveable goofball role. It was something he struggled to grow out of, as he worked his way up to being captain of Palau’s national beach volleyball team. Palau being a very small country population wise, the team had a poor talent pool and rarely won any games. This despite Willie clearly being a top class all around talent. He put his career on the shelf to travel with Yas and company. The loss of Charlie (his brother) embittered him towards technology for a time, as they grew up in a very conservative religious orphanage. This lasted until the hypocrisy of both the tech and religious sides was exposed to him on that journey, at which point he promptly apologized to those he had wronged with his bitterness and prejudice. When the Seawings were revitalized into an Adventurer Guild, Willie agreed to Yas’s request to join it. These days Willie is more and more a politician than an athlete, having been elected to the Koror Legislature as a Legislator-at-Large. He’s truly terrible at actually legislating but among the finest at advocating for the people’s needs. So far it’s worked out okay, and he’s only been a boon in keeping the Guild on Palau’s good side.

 

Powers & Tactics: Willie technically doesn’t have any superhuman powers. He is just a highly skilled and well trained martial artist, who has developed his own…unique…style of combat based on channeling chi through a specially designed volleyball. He has developed several attacks based on this. He can dazzle sight and hearing, stun, paralyze, hammer away several times, and cover an entire area with the ricochets. Even without his volleyball he remains a potent martial artist with a strong punch and sturdy body. His training has also made him better in the water, with greater resistance to cold, pressure, and drowning and a faster swim speed.

 

Tactically, Willie favors Sensory Deprivation as an opening move, followed by some Multispike to put the foe down. Stinging Shot and Wobblin’ Da Knees get worked in as needed. The former when damage isn’t a viable option and the latter more generally, as it’s a Will save and the foes who can withstand his other attacks will more likely have trouble with that one. The Ol’ Ricochet is, of course, reserved for groups of opponents. Oherwise, he doesn’t attack without either using Move by Action or Improved Acrobatic Bluff to increase his chances of hitting. He has Defensive Attack (and Ultimate Toughness if that fails)to protect himself from more powerful foes and Power Attack to hurt the tougher ones. If he’s out of his league, he’ll make use of Set Up and Teamwork to aid more powerful allies. He’s fully capable of power stunting, but generally does not do so.

 

Personality: Willie is a boisterous fellow and a little bit of an idiot. Good natured and laid back, he’s a very likeable guy. He was clearly the heart of the old team, and he cares a lot about other people. He has an abiding love for beach volleyball and the martial arts. That said, he can easily be insensitive without meaning to, but he’ll always apologize and try to do better next time. He used to bear some prejudice against those with European blood, but time and seeing how Asians and Pacific Islanders can be just as bad mostly cured him of that. He’s a gregarious too, with a strong sense of responsibility and a deep faith in, well, he’s not exactly sure anymore. The “old ways” were built on lies. The newer ones aren’t any better. So…call it the essential goodness of the universe. Be it a pantheon of gods, the Christian Holy Trinity, Buddhist ideology, or just venerating the ancestors. There’s someone out there looking out for us, hoping we do good instead of evil. In the meantime, Willie’s just gonna do his best to be a good guy, ya? He loves his wife Lucy and their children (including Charlie) with all his big heart.

Background: Kaikoa was one of Yas’s protectors on her trip to sacrifice herself to save the world. Obviously, things went differently than anyone was expecting, thanks to Tobias’s courage and Yas’s own strength. In the aftermath, Kaikoa returned to Hawaii and his village. He had earned the right to be village chief, and that’s exactly what he settled down to do. Prior to that trip, however, he had exiled himself for failing to protect the village from a threat. When Yas’s father went on his trip (the very same one Yas would later undertake herself), he relied on Kaikoa to protect her. The big Hawaiian did not fail this time. And indeed, no one in his home village blamed him. So he was allowed to take the trial and become chief. When the Seawings were revitalized into an Adventurer Guild, he agreed to Yas’s request to join it. He’s not always around, as being village chief does take a significant portion of his time. And it’s a long way from Hawaii to Palau. Still, if his old friends need him, he will be there. Yas may be grown now and arguable more powerful than he is, but he has not forgotten his oath to protect her.

 

Powers & Tactics: Kaikoa has two things going for him. The first is the big one. He’s a Blue Mage, an ancient and nearly forgotten form of magic. Blue Magic lets him copy virtually any power that is used on him first. Having been a warrior for some time, he has a fairly large catalogue of power stored up. The limitations, however, are that he cannot copy powers that come from the use of Devices with the Technology source descriptor (such as Rikki’s Grenade Belt) or Devices with the Restricted power feat (such as Willie Teriong’s Chi Channeling Volleyball) and that their power will be limited to what he is capable of. Otherwise Kaikoa is a warrior with a long spear. His training has made his body tougher. He can leap far higher than a normal man, run faster, and avoid lethal falls.

 

Tactically, Kaikoa can be a bit difficult to predict. Basically he’s just a spearmaster who can jump high, but his Blue Magic leaves a massive back catalogue of effects available. Granted, they have to have been used on him directly, which rules out such things as Create Object and Enhanced Ability Scores, Skills, Feats, or Saves. But just about any other effect is possible. Which broadens his versatility to a crazy degree. With that said, he does rely on his spearwork much more than his magic. Improved Acrobatic Bluff and Improved Startle make enemies easier to hit, Improved Demoralize makes their saves more difficult, and he can move his ATK, DEF, and Damage bonuses all over the place due to having all of the shifting feats (Accurate, All Out, Defensive, and Power Attack). Obviously, he can’t do power stunts.

 

Personality: Kaikoa is a very straightforward personality. Taciturn, loyal, and honorable virtually to a fault. Takes things very seriously, normally. He’s learned to think things through a bit more, but yeah that’s him. Doesn’t show a lot of emotion, either. Big scary man with a spear. He can have more emotional reactions in a fight, but that’s it.

Background: These three are, well, the same pretty much. They were, of course, upset when the Seawings drifted apart, but managed to start moving on before the revitalization into the Guild. Laki managed to lose his virginity early last year. He and that girl are very adorable together. He’s still the smartest one in the Guild, so if anyone can figure something out he can. And his technical skills remain as sharp as ever. Herman’s still carrying a torch for Yas, but he’s committed to exploring other options. There’s a certain woman on Techie Isle who has their designs on him. He’s still a masterful pilot when called on. Sione got married after the Seawings drifted apart. Three kids now. He’s still pretty anonyomous, but it’s never bothered him so why would it start now?

 

Powers & Tactics: Laki’s upgraded his gear but he’s still not a frontline combatant. His Armored Bodysuit has stronger armor, plus he’s now sporting a Scanning Visor full of Super Senses and has split out the Wrist Blaster from his suit to improve it some as well. Herman and Sione are still just two unpowered guys with assault rifles, really. They’re elite by comparison with regular military, but pale next to most of the Guild.

 

Tactically, these three don’t hang around and fight. They’re the flight crew. While they can, most likely they’re riding the Seawing outta there if a fight kicks off. If they absolutely have to, well…Laki’s got his Wrist Blaster and the other two have their assault rifles. No special tactics other than the basics. Stay out of melee range of the swordmaster and the powerhouse. Use cover against the ranged combatants. Things like that.

 

Personality: Puberty hid laki like a truck. He’s still an introverted and shy nerd, but he’s come out of his shell a bit as he’s grown into physical maturity. And as stated, he and his girlfriend are completely adorkable. Herman is still a goofy dumbass, but there’s some surprising maturity and self awareness to him these days. To the degree that it’s not clear how much of his goofy dumbassery is an act and how much is genuine. He hasn’t given up on winning Yas’s heart some day, but he is moving on ever so slowly. Sione is still little more than a background character. He’s just the ship’s navigator. About as anonymous as a human being can be. And that’s how he likes it. The bonds between three of them are very tight.
