Re: How to model Jade (from Whately)

 

If I'm thinking of the right character, you'd probably model her using a combination of Animate Object (under Telekinesis, in the Advanced Player's Guide) and something like the Telekinetic Sidekick example of Duplication in the the Character Creation book. Basically she creates a telekinetic duplicate that is either invisible & human-shaped (but can wear clothes, etc) or "inhabits" some physical object, animating it (her choice when creating the duplicate).

You have the right character.

Essentially, Jade is a fourteen year old girl with the body of a boy, who has manifested the mutant ability to duplicate her inner self outside of her own body. She can either manifest herself as an intangible, invisible self; a poltergeist haunting an object or an intangible, invisible person residing in a set of clothes and make up. If her inner self manifests 'naturally', such as using a cloud of flour to take the shape of her inner self, she looks like a teenage girl of about eighteen years of age. She is a separate person in each 'self' but they are able to recombine memories by deactivating themselves.

 

Her most common 'self-manifestations' are:

Jade, the self in the body, who pretends to be a gadget/device based mutant. She carries a few actual gadgets made by friends in the know and a few fakes made of things covered in blinky lights. When she wants to defend herself, she pretends to turn on a gadget, while actually manifesting another 'self' in it. So, for example, she commonly manifests in a 'Hello Kitty' compact with blades on it, making it fly and spin like a self controlling shuriken.:eg:

 

Jinn, a self who usually possesses either a set of clothes and make-up designed to look human, or a dark cloak with chalk dust for a face. She is being passed off as Jade's dead older sister. Since her chest is hollow, she carries a safe inside it with her alternate costume inside and a bunch of chains and weapons. For example, since she has been attacked in the past by a werewolf, she bought a load of railroad spikes and coated the tips in silver so he couldn't regenerate. Then, when the werewolf attacked Jade again, Jinn shot them at him hard enough and fast enough to nail him to a tree, before using them to burn the message 'I Like To Hurt Little Girls' into his chest.:smoke:

Duplication with Altered Duplicates (and both Ranged and presumably Easy Recombination, as well as Time Limit) would seem to be at the core of it, yes. The default condition of the duplicates should probably be to be both Desolid and Invisible -- while one can see and attack the animated object, or a 'person' duplicate with suitable makeup (like Shroud), in their natural state they're invisible, intangible, and basically immune to physical attacks. The Advanced Player's Guide offers some Desolidification options which might be worth checking out, too -- most notably Merging.

And she's one of the more normal characters...

 

Okay, normal as far as main characters go. Most students are said to be fairly normal and not insane. They're not the viewpoint characters. Except Aquerna, but that's sort of the point, in her case.

 

Oh, and what they said for build advice.
