Mater Vyrdna's body has been fused with random mechanical parts, with various patches of blue colored flesh serving as proof that she once had been a purely organic lifeform. Especially standing out, half side of her kneck, and the upper-left part of her head, are comprised of machinery, while her fin-like ears and her blue tail betray her heritage as an Akarnian, and a Meso-Akarnian at that. Her medium-lenght hair is coloured Hazel Green, same as her eyes, and it is tied in a knot. She dons a pair of glasses, mostly out of habit.

Mater Vyrdna's form, and specifically, the mechanical parts of it, is often subject to change, depending on the situation, such as materialising wings, transforming her limbs into weapons, or even her entire body melding into an external machine.

Power Descriptions:
Mater Vyrdna can control machines. This includes, but is not limited to, reconfiguring and transforming machines at the merest touch, granting them sentience, and exerting mental control over them. These powers apply even to her own body, allowing her to shapeshift her limbs into rayguns, hammers, laser swords, rocket launchers, drills, etc. She is able to meld with machines, allowing her to transfer her body through them. Finally, she can directly communicate with machines.

Vyrdnaya Solnys-Kori Milareth was born into a relatively wealthy family in the Akarnia Planet of the now long gone Delaztri Empire. Despite having had all comforts available to her, Vyrdnaya had nevertheless managed to grow into a responsible young woman, and through her studies, she quickly developed an interest in engineering. While she'd frequently have arguments with her parents, who were far too oldfashioned for her liking, she held them both dearly. After graduating from college, she decided to enlist in the Delaztri Empire's military, wishing to join the exalted ranks of the Praetorians. Unfortunately, she couldn't meet the recruitment standards for the Praetorian guard, and instead was enlisted as a regular military personel instead.

Service in the military wasn't easy. An unfortunate short-lived affair with a fellow officer left her pregnant, and her parents, who weren't very supportive of her being a lowly military officer, forced her a choice; either marry Jihiskh Mavon-Kuros Ainour (an old university colleague of Vyrdnaya who was making rounds in the field of interconnectivity), or refuse to give her any further support, lest she decided to quit the military. Caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place, Vyrdnaya aqcuiesced to the marriage, after reaching an understanding with Jihiskh, who was also being forced to the marriage by his own parents. The marriage finalized, the two returned to pursuiting their respective careers, and Vyrdanya eventually gave birth to Solmav.

Despite all setbacks, Vyrdnaya's engineering talent didn't take long to shine through, and she was being steadily promoted in rank, eventually becoming Lieutenant Commander. Things were also looking up for her, vis-a-vis her marriage, as Vyrdnaya and Jihiskh found themselves warming up to each other, and eventually falling in love. Their newfound relationship led to the births of Triinareti and Tormug, and the five enjoyed the next 15 years, not as strangers who happened to be together out of necessity and convenience, but out of love and understanding. During this time, Vyrdnaya was eventually transferred at the ship that she would serve, remaining there for three years, before the Communion attacked.

During the climactic battle, the Warp Engine of the Delaztri ship was severly damaged. Vyrdnaya ordered the other engineering crewmembers to evacuate the engine room, while she stayed behind to ensure that it would remain operational. A sudden explosion caused the warp to go haywire, and Vyrdnaya got caught in the surge of energy that teleported her inside the fusion engine. This was a death sentence... or it should have been one. Instead, Vyrdnaya's body was infused with the ship, deep inside its engines, and her consiousness was left wandering the ship's network, with no way to escape or interract with the outside world. Until one day, the Praetorians, not long after being revived in the present, discovered a strange subroutine that was running in the background of their ship.

Personality & Motivation:
Back in the days of the Delaztri Empire, Vyrdnaya was a dreamer, an inquisitive mind accompanying an adventurous spirit. Though her wish to join the Praetorians was rejected, on account of her lacking the proper physical conditioning, she was nonetheless a steadfast member of the Delaztri Navy, and her engineering expertise helped her serve well in every vessel she was assigned. She loved her parents, even when they disagreed, and always made sure her children were happy. Her relationship with Jihiskh was a bit more complicated, were at times she wasn't sure if they were lovers or great friends. Nevertheless, the two were always there for each other, through thick and thin.

This, sadly, is no more the case. The Delaztri Empire fell two millenias ago, and Vyrdnaya's body spent that time in hybernation, while her consiouness was trapped in a digitalized state, never to see her children grow, never to share a kiss with her husband again. This realization has been slowly seeping in her, and in order to cope, she has started treating the surviving Praetorians as family. The Communion has already costed her one; she is not gonna give up another family, not so long as she has a say on the matter.

Powers & Tactics:
Depending on the situation and the terrain, Mater Vyrdna has a versatile range of options in order to engage in combat. When faced with machinery and robotic enemies, she will try to override them via her mental connection to them. If that fails, or if she isn't up against machines, she can still control whatever machines are around her, transforming them, bending them to her will, or even absorbing them in order to use them as spare parts. Finally, if neither of those are readily available, she is still capable of transforming herself, creating a vast array of weapons to use at any range, and she is capable for various modes of transportation.



Having said that, however, Mater Vyrdna is not without her weaknesses. Electromagnetism can cause her greater pain than the average person, thanks to her nervous system being fused with circuitous machinery. Additionally, prolonged exposure to Terminus Tech can prove fatal, due to causing her a cancerous reaction.

Half Machine: Thanks to Vyrdnaya getting fused with the Delaztri Naval Ship, she is now a techo-organic being.
Pain of Loss: Losing your entire family, including your husband and children, is an entirely traumatic experience. As a result, Vyrdnaya is doubly protective of those she cares for.
Ghost in the Machine: Vyrdnaya's body can be disorienting for her to control, and there's a certain amount of disconnect she feels from it, despite still retainning organic parts.
The Unchosen One: Unlike the other Praetorians, Vyrdnaya was never officially knighted, serving only as staff engineer for the Praetorian spacecraft. Her powers came much later. As such, she is rather uncofident, when it comes to operating outside her engineering specialization.
I'm In the Ship; I Am the Ship: Vyrdnaya melding into machines often has the result of her consciousness joinning with whatever she is currently fusing with. She has great affinity and empathy for whatever she joins with.

Man, Vahn, you just had to make me work for it?  Hefty build.


Everything seems solid, few minor bits that I noticed.


Her initiative should be +2 due to her Dex.


Super-Strength 7 in the melee arsenal would actually be an Effective total Strength of 41 so Heavy Load of 3.7 Tons.  I assume the accurate on the melee damage would be where you got the grapple to be +15 instead of +9.  Just took a minute for my brain to accept it.


Dynamic Alternate PowerDamage 12 (120-1200ft radius; Extras: Range[Ranged], Autofire, Flaws: Action[Full Round], Distracting, Feats: Accurate 2, Variable Descriptor 2[Any Technological]) [14PP] (Adaptive Arsenal: Ranged) comes out to 16PP by my reading.  I'm also not sure of what Radius is intended as the ability does not have the area extra to it.  That said the combination of it and the other power in the array are therefore too expensive for the slot.
