Rostam works primarily as a courier, delivering tech and information that others might be tempted to take for their own.
- Refusing the technology so embraced by those around me is not a sacrifice or weakness. It is a gift, and my strength.
- The truth, however ugly and uncomfortable, is superior to even the most beautiful lie.
- Efficiency is more important than style.
- The Art of Being Elsewhere: [Powerful, Defensive] I am motion and flow, never at rest. I strike without telegraphing and retreat at the unexpected angle. (3-harm hand loud 2-armor while using)
- The Way of Least Resistance: [Subtle, Bladed] The point of my blade finds a way, through the weave of fiber, or past the harmonic resonance of energy. (2-harm hand loud AP)
When you lead people out of danger, name up to three people you wish to save. When you save all of them you generate 2 humanity. When you try and fail to save anyone you name, generate 1 humanity.
- Polymer/Carbon Fiber Combat Knife (2-harm)
- Loose-fitting pants and a knee-length tunic made from reactive fabric (1-armor)
POTENTIAL: At the beginning of session, roll 2d6 without adding a state. On a 10+, you generate 2 humanity. On a 7–9, you generate 1. When you draw upon your humanity and consume it, you may spend it 1 for 1 to:
- Inflict humanity harm by telling or showing someone how capable you are despite shirking all technology has to offer.
- Perform an extraordinary feat of physical aptitude (The MC has fnal discretion).
- Take +1 forward when protecting someone from danger.
PARKOUR: When you use the environment to facilitate your movements through the world, roll. On 10+, choose 3. On a 7–9, choose 2.
- Escape an enemy and avoid all harm.
- Leave no trail or trace.
- Navigate to an advantageous spot.
- Change, reorganize, or manipulate the environment to their detriment.
HONED SPECIAL: When the Honed shares a moment of intimacy with someone, be it physical or emotional, you generate 1 hold with that person. Either of you can spend it to have the Honed appear in a dangerous situation with or without explanation as to how they got there.
