He is 25 years old, and often appears as Cute, pink-haired, with light grey eyes and stickers on his face, spiky ear piercings and pastel nails. Unassuming and an avid fashionista, as long as the clothes are adorable.
Lou lives in GA5-1921, a setting where the paranormal work for the government. His journal has 2 entries.
Lou rips a single sticker off his face…and everything blows.
Exert your Mind and spend an Action to activate. You must use up Sticker in order to activate this Effect. The area within 20 feet of you immediately and obviously becomes imminently dangerous. Roll Brawn + Firearms at Difficulty 6. Targets inside the radius may attempt an appropriate Reaction at GM’s discretion. Finding a physical barrier to use as cover will cut total damage taken in half (applies after Reaction roll but before Armor).
If the Outcome is positive, your blast hits everything within 20 feet of you with Damage equal to your Outcome + 2. Armor is reduced to 1/2, rounded up against this damage. If you botched the activation roll, you will also take full damage from the blast, otherwise it will not hurt you.
Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see an Explosion, a big one.
When you activate this Effect, roll a single D10. if the result is 5 or lower, you receive a Severity-1 Injury and a Minor Battle Scar.
Lou holds out the scarred skin of himself or his patient, and the skin boils and blows open, removing the scar for good.
Exert your Mind (unless you win a coin flip) and spend a minute to activate. Select a Battle Scar on yourself to treat.
The treated Battle Scar will heal immediately.
Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation or for its duration will almost certainly be disturbed to see Flesh explodes with fiery vigour, before melding itself back into place..
Any Battle Scars you heal leave behind a Severity 2 Injury on your target that must heal naturally.
Nice computer you have there. Would be a shame if something happened to it.
Exert your Mind and spend 2 Actions to activate. Select a Device within 20 feet. Does not work on Alien technology. You must actively and obviously use Silly little rubber band to activate this Effect. Roll Intellect + Technology, with the Difficulty set by the GM depending on the security of the system you are hacking. Sapient targets can resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 6. The hacking roll and their defensive roll are both Difficulty 6.
If you succeed, you may issue a single command to the targeted system. This command must have a specific outcome or be a request for specific login credentials. The command you issue must be within the machine's current capabilities. For example, you cannot order a standard security camera to grow legs and walk around.
You may issue a "self-destruct" command that leaves the hacked system's hardware inoperable, even if that machine had no such functionality previously. Only works on Computers.
If your command does not require bypassing the security of the target (for example, typing on a computer that is unlocked), you do not need to Exert your Mind to activate this Effect, and activation only takes a single Action.
When targeting non-computer devices, you may operate switches, buttons, dials, levers, and latches.
Your hack cannot be discovered by system administrators or firewall software for a number of hours equal to your Outcome on the initial roll.
Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see If the device is self destructed, the hardware will begin emitting a multi-coloured boiling goop..
After you finish activating this Effect, you cannot move quicker than a walk (max 15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour.
Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Must roll Self Control to avoid using this ability on any system which allow another being to be contained, such as cage locks or shipping containers..
