You gain the following benefits at all times.

You can run at four times your normal movement speed.

  • Any Encumbrance penalty to your movement still applies, but you do not suffer from any sort of exhaustion.
  • Damage from a collision depends on your speed at the time, as well as what you hit. GM's discretion, but generally moving faster than a car on the freeway and hitting a dense, solid object like a wall or a tree should be lethal. Mundane armor will not apply, but any supernatural forms of protection will.

A series of nodes can be found in the largest of Halfdan's muscle groups, with special attention to the limbs and either side of the abdomen. Halfdan triggers them seemingly unconsciously whenever he engages those muscles with the intent to attack. They connect and overcharge said muscles such that that have more power available in every attack. They seem to also detect incoming attacks from materials that would normally cause harm if deflected or attacked, directing the extra power to increase the density and tightness of necessary areas of skin.

Anton Ortega has always been a smooth talker, with sparkling eyes that disarm even the coldest of hearts. He's easily talked his way out of a number of run-ins with the authorities, always managing to get off scot-free one way or another. After his first Contract, though, his expertise with deception have multiplied tenfold. Unfortunately, at the same time as his power manifested, a group of superfans to his work managed to leak a photo of his face in the midst of creating a new piece. Overnight, Anton went from an unknown, underground punk, to a well-respected Bay Area Artist. The speed of his popularity seems to have come *far* too quickly, however, likely an unintended consequence of his manifested Gift.
