Amarjeet Inderpal has played more Games out of their home World than in it.
Games in home World: 1
Games in other Worlds: 6
They can only play in Games in their home World until that's where the majority of their Games have taken place.
She is 28 years old, and often appears as a business-like women, wearing western clothes with her uncut hair worn in a long braid.
Amarjeet Inderpal lives in The Tattered Curtain, a World where the barriers between universes are beginning to crumble.
Her journal, The Inderpal Agency, has 14 entries.
Conditions are GM-assigned status effects.
Examples of Conditions include supernatural curses, enchantments, and diseases. Conditions are created by GMs and World leaders and are not subject to any standardized balance. Therefore, their effects may be altered or ignored outside the World where they were obtained. For example, lycanthropy may be contagious in one World, but not another.
Circumstances describe your Contractor's situation in various Worlds.
Enemies, wealth, notoriety, status, contacts, fame, and imprisonment are all examples of potential Circumstances.
Amarjeet touches either an object or subject with her right hand - lines of Dark Matter unfold from beneath her Kara Bracelet, crawling across her skin & that of the subject with a somewhat unpleasant crawling sensation, forming elaborate, identical "Henna" marks. While the Mark is active, both the Target & Amarjeet are aware of each others approximate Direction & Distance through a Quantum Entanglement.
Exert your Mind and spend an Action placing your Mark on a target within Arm's Reach. As long as the Mark is active, you know the direction and distance of the Mark. A Mark lasts until destroyed or replaced, or you may also choose to end the effect at will.
You can have 3 Marks running at a time. If you try to add another while at this maximum, your oldest active Mark is destroyed.
The Mark looks like Henna markings appearing at point of contact. It can be intuitively removed if discovered, but removing it will give the target a Severity 1 Injury.
Amarjeet touches the place to be warded with her right hand & focuses her will on the alien technology in her Kara Bracelet. Lines of Dark Matter crawl from the Kara down her hand forming elaborate Henna patterns on the desired subject. This effect supplements the telemetry gained from the Client Lock, allowing the subject to be viewed remotely. All data, viewed or not, is recorded on the Lotus III Augment for later review. It is possible to transmit data through the Mark as well as receive it, & Amarjeet may use it to communicate with the subject (or those nearby) at any range.
Spend an Action and Exert your Mind to place a Ward. You may have at most 3 wards running concurrently, and they are fixed to their initial locations. You can hear and see through the Ward as though you were standing at its location.
The Ward requires your full attention to monitor, and it can be detected and destroyed through mundane means.
Though raised in the United Kingdom, Amarjeet is an Initiated Sikh, & struggles to maintain the Khalsa as best she can. The adversity she has endured has hardened her in a multitude of ways, & she reacts to any situation with uncanny speed & precision. However, if she fails in maintaining the Sikh Commandments, particularly her vegetarian diet, her focus is ruined with shame & self loathing.
Passive, always in effect. Your Wits rating is increased by 1. You may Exert your Mind to automatically gain an Outcome of 5 on any roll that uses Wits (cannot be used on combat rolls or Power activations).
A given Contractor may have a maximum of one Mythic attribute. This Power can only be taken by Contractors who have purchased the fifth level of Wits.
Amarjeet has a neural implant that performs as a state of the art mobile phone, offering 5G Internet, bluetooth connections, calculator, calendar, text, email, & even a flashlight emanating from her right eye. When any of these effects are employed, a golden, lotus pattern mandala can be seen rotating in her right eye.
Passive, always in effect. You have access to the functionality of Smartphone, Computer, camera (includes the internet, and other publicly available software). Note that this covers the functionality of the tools and does not grant you the tools as objects themselves. You cannot use this Power to satisfy the requirements of the Focus Drawback.
Hundreds of hours of intense shooting drills have enabled Amarjeet's lethal speed & accuracy. When on Contract, this skill is further enhanced by her determination not to fail again.
Passive, always in effect. Attacks with firearms will do +0 more damage. The target's Armor is Reduced to 1/2, rounded up.
Amarjeet prefers the telescoping baton or the striking spur on her cybernetic leg for those times when close combat is necessary.
Passive, always in effect. Attacks with Eskrima Weapons (Short Clubs/Knives) will do +1 more damage. The target's Armor is Fully Effective.
Amarjeet's broken leg has been replaced by a sleek, cybernetic model. Largely composed of State of the Art ceramics & polymers, it is still clearly artificial.
Onboard weapon systems include a retractable "Spur" on her heel for & a .45 Caliber "Pistol" built into the knee.
Heel Spur: Counts as a Baton/Short Club. Can be Electrified to act as a Taser.
Knee Pistol: This weapon can only be fired with accuracy in Melee range, can hold 8 rounds, & is typically fired with a "Knee Strike" motion.
The leg can be detached with some effort, & must be repaired or replaced if damaged.
Your Extra Appendage functions either as a replacement body part or a standard humanoid arm and hand. Any Battle Scars on your Extra Appendage, including its complete loss, can be healed over one Downtime.
If your Extra Appendage acts as an additional limb instead of a replacement, you do not need to re-roll to maintain a successful grapple. Instead, your previous Outcome can be reused each Round until the grapple is broken.
This Power is passive and always in effect.
Artifacts are GM-created objects and equipment.
Examples of Artifacts include healing potions, scrolls, sci-fi technology, or any supernatural item that was not created with The Contract's Power system. Artifacts are not subject to standardized balance. Therefore, their effects may be altered or ignored outside the World where they were obtained.
So, Mr. Lee asked some pertinent questions that I have had time to ruminate on. Further, my "benefactors" have made me an interesting offer that challenges some of my beliefs.
Good thing these entries are encrypted. If I ever can afford a Personal Assistant it would simply not do for them to find I was journalling like a distraught teenager on company time.
So, the first question: When is it valid to take a man's life?
Self Defense of course. I am no pacifist. Most Sikhs are not, with storied careers in military pursuits since the first Guru. My brothers were quite fond of using their Karas as a fist pack, something I've done myself. As a people, carrying a fucking sword at all times is part of our religion! So yes, not only Self Defense but duty as well: A soldier who kills other soldiers is not "Murder." That applies, in my mind, to the work of a Security Specialist. A threat to my clients is a threat that is my solemn duty to...neutralize. With prejudice, if necessary. It is decidedly not cricket to kill anyone who provides a moment of inconvenience, or is perhaps a bit insulting.
That would be wrong.
I say that with such feeling not as a religious person, or a "weak woman" - I say that, often & with fervor, because if I did not I know that I would have my own trail of corpses.
Well, more than I already have.
The second question: Polluting the body that God made for me.
I don't eat meat. I don't cut my hair, or pluck my eyebrows, as dictated by the Khalsa. All the other rubbish as well, thank you very much. Nor do I consent to tattoos or piercings...however, I do have a bionic prosthetic. A war injury, any Sikh Veteran would do the same, right?
Now, my benefactors have begun to open the catalog. Implants. Augments...more than human. Better than God made you.
A better, more faithful person would refuse.
May God forgive me then.
I feel like a fucking idiot.
While that is hardly a new sensation, unfortunately, it hardly excuses my incompetence.
So caught up with living my life (such as it is) I neglected to follow up. Not my job, right?
Well, it may have behooved me to do so considering that many of these "Jobs" I've done over the last few months never happened.
The AI controlled Cruise Vessel? There is no such thing. Moonyvale, California? No such place (Though that is something I should have deduced on my own, obviously). The creature in Africa? No reports, no records. I would say I had imagined it all if not for the rather insistent presence of this cybernetic prothesis (Anderson Robotics? There is no such company. Of course there isn't). I would check myself into the Mad House right now if not...if not for the Visions.
That awful Thing in Russia showed me countless potential realities. Countless. Layered over one another like a frayed quilt. These..."Jobs"...they happened, of that I cannot doubt. The lack of records leaves only two answers:
1) There is a staggering, & dreadfully conducted cover up underway
2) These events transpired in paralell realities.
I would prefer the bumbling cover-up to be honest. Agents looking to kill me as a loose end fits my martyred sense of melodrama.
Other Worlds than These? Even though I've seen it, experienced it first hand...I don't feel I'm ready. How can anyone be ready to accept limitless poteniality?
God...I am at a loss.
With the substantial retainer from Lorenzo, I can finally move on my plans for the Inderpal Agency
Mahmoud will be the "owner" of the Middle Eastern branch of the Agency...a bad taste in the mouth that; He is pleasant enough, & well connected in local circles (imperative in the UAE)...still. Knowing that I must pay a local National (& a Man on top of that) to "own" my business for me simply does not sit right.
"Tradition" they would say. "Customs."
Yes, well...I am still quite cross about it.
In the above file I mentioned taking a Close Protection Contract while on one of these mad "Jobs" (I will not disgrace my profession by calling them proper "Contracts"), at a princely sum of $1200 a day. A sum I might add, that was immediately paid. Gladly, even.
Those are elite rates.
I can almost hear my mother chiding me about greed...it's not greed though. It's about Professionalism. It's about Respect.
I intend to gain that respect, among my peers, with my family, before God, & before myself.
If I can afford all the top shelf gear that the world has to offer in the meantime, so much the better. I'll need it too, I am certain. These are not normal jobs after all. It will take every bit of my skills, wit, & cunning to see my clients through.
Oh yes...& an edge. I may have gained an edge as well, though I have not yet made sense of it...as a girl I always marveled at the pretty patterns of the Henna. These...these markings that accompany my Contracts...I do not know what they mean. Some sort of "reward" they say, like the leg...but what does it mean? How does it work? A part of me says I should simply trust to God & take it as a blessing on faith.
I am historically rather bad at doing that however.
7 Victories - 0 Losses

Indisputable proof of the supernatural in the palm of her hand, and she gave it away.
