Ghoulish Edgar pulls away his respirator to reveal a short muzzle containing a twisted amalgam of human teeth & hooked fangs.

2
You possess an augmented or inhuman body.
Used by Edgar Stokes, Created by Strazhari.
(Your specific augmentation must be physically visible in some way, but it does not need to make you seem monstrous or horrifically inhuman unless you take the Monstrous Drawback. )

Edgar is slowly becoming a Ghoul; his hands have thickened & become tipped with hooked talons suitable for digging up graves & tearing flesh. He has grown a short muzzle choked with a combination of his original teeth & savage fangs. His feet have begun to fuse into hoof-like stumps. Like a rat, if he can get his head through a hole, he can get his entire body through.


You gain the following benefits at all times.

You are permanently and visibly transformed: Mythos Ghoul. You are considered to be a Sapient, Living being when targeted.

You are immune to damage from cold. If cold is a substantial component of other damage you would take (e.g. falling from a great distance into a vat of liquid nitrogen), that damage is reduced by 2 (in addition to Armor)

You can squeeze through any cracks and passageways a cat would be able to.

Your body provides you with the functionality of Digging Tools. If used to attack, these "tools" use the same stats as a small knife.

You cannot wear standard human clothes, and using many sorts of vehicles and facilities is difficult.

  • Tools at Hand functionality cannot be used with Melee Mastery.
