Aspects
High Concept: Savagely Defending Her New Transhuman Family
Trouble: Reckless Curiosity Takes Me To Difficult Places
Aspects:
  • Celestial Mother: Anxiously anticipating being a mother of a new kind of human.
  • Horses: Life without them is unimaginable.
  • I Call Bullshit: Hypersensitive to deception.
  • Quest: Never Give Up. Never Surrender!
  • MITO Strong: I can lift 2000 to 5000 Kg, jump 5m straight up, and walk through normal barriers like they're not even there.
  • MITO Tough: It takes armour piercing rounds to get through my skin and even then they don't go far. I can use my strength without hurting myself. Radiation, vacuum, huge accelerations - I'm fine with them all.
  • MITO Fast: My reaction times are significantly faster than normal humans, meaning I can run 60Km/h, dodge almost anything a normie throws at me, and think faster than you expect.
  • Preaural Sense: The sound around me is a cacophony of everything I could hear in the next few seconds (see Powers).

  • Bullshit Detection: Because I am incredibly sensitive to deception, I get +2 when I Quickly sense secrets and lies.
  • Truthhound: Because I hate lies and secrets, I get +2 when I Forcefully root out the truth.
  • Persistence: Because I never give up, once per session I can overcome an otherwise impossible situation.
  • Future Audible Sensorium: Once per session I can Forcefully send myself an audible experience, giving me the chance to overcome and alter the last 2DC seconds (see Powers).
  • Healing Factor: Once per turn physical stress and damage is reduced by 2 points, so a 4 point slot is removed in 2 turns. The smallest slots heal first (1 Stress, 2S, 2 Consequence, 3S, 4S, 4C, etc.).

Appearance

19yrs old.

Before 2034-03-01: Short platinum blonde hair, shaved on one side. Retro 1980s punk look; leather jacket; a bit too much make-up.

Backstory

Feisty and filterless. Graffiti artist. Gamer. Tech savvy. Hates excuses. Lives clean, but often associates with people who aren't. Loved her childhood and her dad (Deke), who taught her the love of nature, and horses in particular. After her mother's death (Margaret), Deke slipped into the bottle and Grace had to do everything herself. She's disappointed in her father and is looking for a family that won't fail her.

MITOtech

Changes to the body and mind occur over two weeks.

  • Day 1: +1 Forceful, +1 Quick, Damage Resistance +1 vs non-chemical stress, 4 point stress slot
  • Day 2: -1 Careful
  • Day 3: -1 Careful (-2 total), lose 3 pt mental stress slot
  • Day 4: +1 Forceful, Damage Resistance +1 (+2 total) vs non-chemical stress, 5 point Stress slot
  • Day 5: +1 Quick (+2 total)
  • Day 6: +1 Clever
  • Day 7: +1 Forceful (+3 total), 8 point Consequence slot
  • Day 10: Healing Factor +1
  • Day 14: Healing Factor +1 (+2 total)

Powers

I hear things before they happen. In terms of game play, this Aspect can be used proactively to create favourable conditions, and the Stunt can be used retroactively, to erase unfavourable conditions.

Preaural Echoes

This aspect is quite flexible. With sufficient motivation, Genie can hear the near future, essentially receiving a broadcast of her own auditory sensorium from all possible futures. Proactive use of this power can allow her to hear silenced conversations (the zone of silence could fail, right?), avoid noisy danger (don't step where the landmine is going to be), answer questions before they are asked, and much more. In practice this means spending a Fate Point to Forcefully (+5) create an advantage like Pre-sense noisy badness, and activating it to twist Fate into a more palatable path.

As her brain gets better at handling this bizarre new input, the overwhelming noise will gradually fade. Eventually emotionally charged sounds will be interpreted as if they are emanating from a specific location in space.

Future Auditory Sensorium

Retroactively rewriting recent game play is narratively messy, but it will happen with this power. To activate it,

/roll 4f DC0 +5Forceful +0Boost +0Advantage

The result of the roll determines how far back Genie can send her own auditory sensations. Most of the time her range is 8 to 60 seconds.

  • <0 = Not enough time to preact.
  • 0 = 1 second
  • 1 = 2 s
  • 2 = 4 s
  • 3 = 8 s
  • 4 = 15 s / ¼ minute
  • 5 = 30 s / ½ min
  • 6 = 60 s / 1 min
  • 7 = 2 min
  • 8 = 4 min
  • 9 = 8 min
  • 10 = 15 min
  • 11 = 30 min
  • 12 = 1 hour

The use of this power requires an emotionally charged event to trigger it. It is not something she consciously controls.

Relationships

Grace is the romantic, business, and gaming partner of Red Cooper. They're together IRL, IAR, and IVR.

Updates

  • Careful -1, Forceful +1 for June 6 session
  • Major Milestone 2017-08-03 +1 Aspect, +1 Refresh

This left 275 to assault the base. The four HC2 showed their extraordinary ca
