Power Descriptions:
Epsilon has a set of powers that come together to put her on the front lines. Thanks to her parents' experimentation, she can increase her density, making her much stronger and tougher than even most superhumans, and can fly. The density change is fairly obvious to any onlookers, as her skin turns jet-black and anything under tends to break (or at least bend) as suddenly it has to support something the weight of a car, but concentrated on a much smaller area. In addition, she is always operating with super-human strength and toughness, even while her density is normal.


For over twenty years, two people who call themselves Pater and Meter, have toiled to create superhumans. Rather than take grown people, or others' children, and try to give them powers, however, they have used their 'own' children. Only the first two (called Mu and Nu) were actually born by Meter – the others were birthed as 'test tube babies', artificially inseminated ovaries placed in incubators. The ultimate goal was to create their 'Omega', the perfect superhuman, unstoppable and unkillable. In the meantime, they worked to perfect their method, building weaker superbeings and using them to 'acquire' research and tech from other scientists.


After Mu and Nu, Pater and Meter perfected their method, and so far five have been successfully made, though each one requires so many resources and so much time that their method is impractical in the large scale. Furthermore, the process messes with the subjects mentally, leaving each one with an unstable mind. Alpha, the first, is a variable energy controller and requires constant supervision by his parents as he cannot empathize easily with those he is supposed to save. Beta is a speedster with an extremely low attention span. Gamma, a duplicator, cannot make friends with other people and prefers to befriend 'herself'. Delta, a shapeshifter, lives life as an animal, unwilling to try it as a human. And, finally, Epsilon's mind is open to suggestion, leaving her easy to manipulate.


The Freedom League caught on to what was happening sometime during the development of Gamma in their thirdth year of research, but for the next seventeen, and the development of Delta and then Epsilon, Pater and Meter managed to evade them by moving their labs regularly, even going so far as to sacrifice labs that were compromised, with explosives. The closest the League got was when Epsilon was sixteen. Through cunning, luck, and the inattention of the 'parents', the League managed to trap Epsilon, with no chance of escape. Pater and Meter made the call to cut their losses and abandon her, and Epsilon ended up in the custody of the heroes.


After a long series of interviews and psychological profiles, it was determined by the League's experts that her extreme suggestibility and the environment she was raised in are what pushed her to obey her parents and commit crimes. They ruled she had not been mentally competent at the time, and rehabilitation, rather than punishment, would be the way to go. She was sent to Claremont Academy, to be educated into the world of superheroing, and kept under the supervision of the local heroes and teachers.


Personality & Motivation:
Epsilon is usually very open and friendly with people. However, people also frequently notice that she is very open to suggestion, whether normally delivered, or psionically delivered. This leads to people assuming she's naïve and trusting, and manipulating her to their own ends.


Powers & Tactics:
Epsilon is most often on the front lines of a fight. Since she can take a beating without flinching, she can take on the toughest enemies and expect to make it through none the worse for wear. But, due to her suggestibility, she is very open to new orders, and will often follow orders without questioning them, if delivered from a trusted source.



Identity – Secret: Epsilon was given the new name of Jane Williams, when she was placed at the Academy. It was an effort to help hide her from her parents, as well as simply so that she would have a normal name. People tend to frown when someone just calls themselves Epsilon.


Altered Biology: Due to the changes made to her genetic code, treating Epsilon is quite different from treating an ordinary human. Surgeons find organs in the wrong places, and veins connecting to the wrong things. Her body even reacts to invaders differently. In the end, it means that caring for her is difficult and confusing, and best done by her parents (who made the changes) or people with experience in such things.


Suggestible: While not exactly weak-willed, Epsilon has a hard time distinguishing between good and bad ideas, when presented to her by someone else. If asked, told, or otherwise instructed to do something that isn't obviously immediately harmful to herself or others, she will usually do what the other person wanted.


Ex-Villain: Even if it was determined that Epsilon was not able to make her own decisions at the time, she was once a supervillain, stealing technology and research. Some people remember those days, and intend to ensure she never falls back to those ways again.

Alright, well mechanics stuff


Grapple should be +27.

You've actually only spent 13PP into Saves.

You therefore have 4 PP left unspent.


Fluff wise, I have suggestions but nothing that'd stop me from giving an approval.  You could probably include some sort of complication related to her family taking interest in her being their "Omega" success story as she grows more famous or something?


Alright so her powers.  She's actually got more than being able to make herself more dense/black going on.  Even without turning on the density she has low superhuman strength, is able to fly, has low levels of imperviousness, and can survive in any environment without breathing.  It might be worth noting in the fluff if nothing else (although you did note the being able to fly) the way it's worded makes it look as if it's part of being dense unintentionally.  Although I could just be reading poorly.

Alrighty, edited the Grappling bonus.


Put the 4pp into EVEN MOAR SUPAR-STRANGTH! Now, she operates at high superhuman levels, even when she isn't Dense.


For the Complication - I think that's a good idea, but I should probably introduce it later, if possible? At the moment, she's not particularly famous, so her family doesn't really think of as anything other than something they need to re-do later - or maybe get back if they can.


I added in some powers-fluff.
