Legacy Power: Phenotypic Plasticity

I'm adaptable

A 1 Gift Warp Form Power used by Dr. Patrick Stanley, created by Serpentail.


Dr. Stanley is able to incorporate traits of other animals into his own physiology helping him adapt to any circumstance.


Exert your Mind, choose an Animate target within Arm's Reach, and spend 15 Minutes warping their form. You roll Intellect + Animals Difficulty 6, which the target may contest by rolling [[defensive-roll]], provided they are not restrained, unconscious, or incapacitated.

If you are successful, you may change their body in a way that ranges from a mere aesthetic difference to something inconvenient. Alterations cannot cause a dice penalty of more than -2 to any given Action.

Your alteration counts as a new Battle Scar and is affected by Powers that interact with Battle Scars.


  • Willful End (You may end this Effect before its duration has elapsed as a Free Action.)
  • Augmentation (Your alterations may provide a functional benefit to your target instead of a penalty. Can give up to +2 dice for relevant actions, or simple beneficial traits possessed by mundane animals, such as gills for water breathing.)


  • Focus (Using this Effect requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - Zoological notes
  • Selfish (You may only target yourself.)


Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach ) Cast Time: 0 ( 15 Minutes )
