Doc Bruno

Doc Bruno

Bruno Hammerworth has had a problem with aliens ever since his father was abducted, and has a heartfelt desire to stop whatever they're up to. Prior to his sudden career change, despite his beefy appearance, he was just a nice family doctor from the States with no combat training. Due to this, he has terrible aim, and he compensates for it by using weapons that are harder to miss with.

Bio-Manipulation - Bio-Electric Charge
If the psionic succeeds at an unarmed attack, they may use this power to deliver an attack with the same stats as a Tazer instead. Can also recharge small batteries. Costs 1 Essence and 5 Endurance points to use.

Bio-Manipulation - Bio-Electric Blast (3 Points/6 XP, Prerequisite: Bio-Electric Charge)
If the psionic succeeds at an unarmed attack, they may use this power to deliver an attack with the same stats as a Stun Prod instead. Can also recharge car batteries. Costs 1 Essence and 5 Endurance points to use.

Bio-Manipulation - Carapace Growth (2 Points/4 XP):
The psionicist or anyone he touches gains 5 armor per point of Dexterity that they sacrifice(this effect lasts 10 rounds in combat, ten minutes outside of it, unwilling targets roll Psionic Resistance+Constitution vs the psionicist's Psionic Assault+Willpower), targets reduced to -1 or less Dexterity this way are paralyzed as they're trapped within a hard, but immobile, carapace. This power costs 1 Essence and 5 Endurance to activate.

Energy Control - Photon Control (2 Points/4 XP):
Allows the user to intensify or dampen light sources at will, including sunlight. For a cost of 1 Essence, this can be used to grant a +4 or -4 to any stealth rolls in an area(by adjusting the light level in the area) for several minutes. It also allows the user to briefly intensify light sources to provide directional flashbang effects, at a cost of 2 Essence. Functions exactly like a Flashbang, except it only affects vision, and friends can be selectively excepted by rolling a Psionic Assault+Perception check, allowing the user to exempt one character per success.

Telepathy - Thought Shield (2 Points/4 XP):
Increase your Psionic Resistance by 2 for every 1 Essence spent, lasts five rounds in combat and five minutes outside of combat.
