    Financially Comfortable
    From Assets and Liabilities
    Your finances are in-order, and you can afford to spare some for your Contracting. You have access to $35,000 (or equivalent currency) per Contract.
    Illuminated: Debated
    Given by Strazhari
    There is some publicly-accessible evidence of your supernatural nature. Rumors of your capabilities circulate online, and some people believe them. You find it easier to get publicity, often to a fault. You may be stalked by internet sleuths, and your actions, contacts, and public appearances are highly scrutinized.
    Below Average Finances
    Given by dae_kianna
    You can live frugally off your money. From your 10th Downtime to your 12th Downtime, you have access to $1,500 (or equivalent currency) per Contract due to making hefty donations to a certain wildfire relief fund. This ends at the start of your 13th Contract, putting you back at Comfortable Finances.
    Arsenal: Drugs
    From Assets and Liabilities
    Through some legal, licensed means, you have reliable access to a certain type of material others don’t. You may transport this material without the authorities interfering. Choose drugs (narcotics, prescriptions, poisons), explosives (grenades, dynamite, c4), or armory (any firearms or armor, even if normally illegal where you reside)


    From Assets and Liabilities
    Avoidance You are so off-putting, that most people just avoid you. You may Exert your Mind to cause someone to ignore or avoid you in a social situation. Any Stealth rolls you might make as a part of this get +2 to their Outcome. Only works if your Charisma rating is 1.
    Trained Reflexes Your life has been filled with tight situations and violent encounters, so when the fighting starts, you act quickly. You get +3 dice to all Initiative rolls.
    Cat-Eyes Your eyes catch the light in the dark like a cat or dog's, granting low-light vision. You suffer no penalty to rolls in low-light situations. You cannot see in pitch blackness.
    Paranoia You have a natural distrust of everyone around you, and are always on edge looking for threats. You must roll Self Control in order to let another person remain in a position where they could easily hurt you, or to allow someone else to perform a task which is necessary to keep yourself safe. If you fail, you may Exert your Mind to overcome your fear.
    From Maelstrom
    Contortionist You are unusually flexible, and may squeeze through small spaces with ease. (Reduce the difficulty of any roll to escape a grapple or dexterity roll involving flexibility by 2. In combat escaping a grapple has it's difficulty reduction capped at -1.)
    Supersize Me! The restless Spirits of Heavenly Burger have not forgotten you, and do not forgive. . . Any time you enter a fast food restaurant, you will suffer some kind of (relatively) harmless poltergeist activity. This may affect you directly or someone in your vicinity as desired by the GM.

    Born between the relationship of a hunter and Encantado. He was raised in the outskirts of the amazon, learning how to hunt, harvest, and live off the land. His natural abilities never came to though as only his father raised him while his mother vanished once again. Exploring and learning, eventually he met a women himself, one which he would have a kid with, a researcher of the amazon forest as well as a avid traveler, they traveled through sea and land, eventually one day landing in china. During the time of new years, with their now 4 year old kid, they went to explore the mountains, enjoy the land, until they saw something... a monster, a lion with spikes on its body, its skin almost metallic with a jade green, its tail on fire and a broken chain around the end of its tail almost as if it just escaped. Sharp claws that could practically slice through steel. The moment the family spotted it, it spotted them. Rushing into a charge, Abbas tried to get his family to run, but how could they out run a beast. Trying to fend off the creature, technology has made his old skills dull, no longer holding a blow dart, no longer holding a bow, only carrying a pistol that is extremely loud and each shot giving off a strong smell of gunpowder, he tries to shoot the thing. Missing all his shot but 1, that went straight through its eye. The creature howled in pain yet it seemed to be highly intelligent as it rushed his kid and wife down. The beast, barely seeming injured, looked at Abbas with intent, almost as if to laugh at his folly, with a bite, his wife head cracked under the beast, blood spilling everywhere, right in front of Abbas. With a stomp, his kid, crushed into paste. Abbas in despair stared at the monster with misery, as the creature approached him, under his stress, his agitation, fear, and rage, his natural ability that should have long vanished appeared. Vanishing with the wind, blending in with the trees, he vowed to get his revenge as he hunts under the darkness. Yet, he never seemed to be able to use the power again, only fragments of it. No longer blending in with nature but only his surroundings, that moment, led him to being able to learn how to start removing his presence. His way of talking, moving, even his natural stance changed to make him as least noticeable as possible. Nevertheless, with his learning and training, he becomes proficient enough to start stalking creatures, watching their actions. He has deemed that many if not all monsters are no longer redeemable... They prey, they manipulate, they torture, he hunts down these creatures, using poison and toxins he has learned to harvest. He will ensure that the hunters, will soon be the hunted, and that the innocent shall never experience what these creatures can truly be like.

    Curare: After struck with an appropriate dose, Roll body at difficulty 8: if they fail they gain a penalty of -1 Die to all dice pools, that increases by -1 per turn. When they reach "0" dice, they begin to suffocate per the rules. This lasts approximately 30 minutes to an hour. Taser rules: Only on humans

    Abbas Oliver Serna, the tragic halfbreed monster hunter, A man caught between two worlds, his heart a constant thunder, His father a hunter of beasts, his mother a creature of the night, A life of struggle and pain, of darkness and light.

    In his veins flowed a mixture of blood, Of hunter and monster, of predator and prey, a turbulent flood, A duality that shaped his every move, A constant battle between the two.

    He roamed the land, with arrow and spell, Hunting the beasts that threatened to make life a hell, With each victory, he felt the thrill of the hunt, But also the weight of his own dual front.

    For he knew that he was a monster too, That he shared their blood and their taboo, That he could have been born on the other side, And lived a life of terror and pride.

    Abbas Oliver Serna, the tragic halfbreed monster hunter, A hero who bore the burden of his own wonder, May his legacy be remembered with awe, And his sacrifice inspire us to see beyond the raw.
