You also gain the following effects:

  • Body Slam: If you move and then make a successful attack against a target with a Brawn rating less than or equal to yours, if your target was closer than the full distance you could have moved, you may knock them back the excess movement distance and choose whether or not to follow them.
  • Flow Like Water: If you win a Clash or successfully prevent an attack by Defending, you may instead redirect the incoming attack to another target within range. If you Defend, the redirected attack uses your positive Outcome after defending, if you Clash it uses the outcome in entirety if you win.

As long as at least half your body remains intact, you cannot die and remain at Incapacitated, regardless of how many Injuries you take. It is clear to observers that you are still alive.

All Injuries you receive are considered Properly Stabilized. You may also choose to heal any Battle Scar on yourself that may not have been caused by an Injury. Doing so takes one day, and the Battle Scar affects you fully until that time.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Predatory Instincts: When encountering any creature that runs away from you, roll Self Control to resist the compulsion to chase it down and Paranoia: A life as war torn as yours has made you quite unreceptive to the trusting words of others. 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..

Injuries you receive from Divine items are increased in Severity by 1.

  • The increase in Injury Severity stacks with any similar effects, such as the Vulnerable drawback on Inhuman Physiology.

Power comes with a price, however, and her strength can only be maintained as long as she continues to feed her body with a steady source of protein, which her body uses to heal damaged muscle and create stronger ones at a supernatural rate. This often comes from the meat of the animals that she hunts, but she's not against carrying extra protein powders and supplements in order to ensure that her muscles are always strong.
