Ai was born precisely nine months after the Seeding. Her mother was trouble threw out the pregnancy and the delivery was taxing for her, but Ai was born healthy and vibrant. In fact, she was extraordinarily healthy and quite the robust child. It wasn’t until she was 1 year old that the differences began to manifest. While playing outside the family compound, young Ai was startled by a small animal. Instantly bolts of crimson energy lashed from the young girl, incinerating the creatures and much of her surroundings, leaving Ai naked and crying in the middle of the destruction.

The girl’s nannies and tutors were horrified. Her father though, was much more stoic about his daughter’s “gifts†seeing their potential. Using his scientific background and vast wealth, he began a covert study of her abilities. His researchers, some of the top high energy physicists in Asia determined that the young girl’s body almost continuously generated and stored a previously unknown form of power. This energy was extremely volatile and destructive when exposed to normal matter and disrupted regular energy fields.

Ai control of the energy field was touchy at best. It responded to her emotions, particularly fear and anger. The child had to be taught control or she would be a danger to others (she seemed essentially immune to her discharges) and hardly a very useful resource. So her father began the girl on a rigorous training program, focused on the martial arts, meditation and self control in the mold of a classical Samurai. So almost since she could walk, Ai has been trained to be warrior, scholar and servant viewing her father as her daimyo.

 

 

 

 

Ai grew up strong and skilled, with a power mind and body. Her powers made her quite a bit tougher than a normal girl of her age, and her reflexes were honed to a razor’s edge by almost constant physical training and fierce dedication to perfecting her arts. Her father’s researchers traced the origin of her abilities back to the Seeding. Gathering as much of the alien materials together as they could, the team discovered one element that could resist Ai (dubbed Ran or Chaos in their files) awesome energies: a crystalline metal that seemed to be as immune as she was to her powers. They forged two blades for her, the traditional Samurai daisho to assist Ai in her missions. Using the blades made channeling her powers easier for Ran and she quickly mastered using them in a number of highly destructive ways.

Ran initial mission took her against organized crime interests and other powerful zaibatus inside Japan. These missions were carried out in the highest secrecy with pains taken to conceal the girls identity and origin, particularly from foreign interests. Ai’s father is a stanch Japanese patriot and felt that other nation, particularly the US would try to legislate or duplicate such a potentially powerful personal weapon as Ai. Project:Ran is one of the most highly guarded secrets of the Japanese government, but now as the dawn of a new century plans are being laid for the project to go public at long last…

He threw the ball.

He threw the ball through the hoop.

He threw the ball through the hoop throughout the game.

Re: Character for review:Ran

 

I'm not clear if this is supposed to be a player character with a huge base (600 pts), a NPC or a villain. As I was looking through the powers, I saw the Disabling Strike (3d6, Does BODY). Although interesting, the Does Body portion of it is almost useless since anyone with a 3 PD or higher will take not Body damage, nor it is likely to do any knockback. However, in the interest of concept and since it's in an ultra slot, keep it.

Not bad. :) Linguist and scholar both make sense for this character.

 

She should probably have a KS:Kendo, and you might consider Analyze Style as well.

Its a PC submitted for my Seeds of Change game. As for the disabling strike, I was going to consider the body damage to still go against Power Defense.

Yes, yes you do. :)

 

But aside from the grammar check (which I'm sure will be corrected when the player edits the character), any comments?

Well that was confusing for a moment... I have a character named "Ran" in the KAZEI 5 campaign book.

Re: Character for review:Ran

 

A couple of comments on the character:

1) The whole thing, as a big picture, fits together well conceptually. No glaring omissions and it all makes sense.

2) I was under the impression that the campaign had a SPD upper limit of 8, and this character has SPD 9

3) If the character loses her sword (for a -1 lim, you've got to expect that to happen every once in a while), she's going to lose her whole multipower *and* access to a lot of her MA moves--will the player flip out if this happens? If so, I would recommend changing from OAF to OIF...

4) Is the vulnerabilty to cold based on the skimpy costume? :doi: It isn't given any explanation in the character write-up.
