*Mastery in Armor: No penalties for heavy armor
*Practiced With All Weapons: You can use any weapon. Enabler.
*Specialized in Heavy Bladed attacks: 1 bonus to damage when he feels as though his combat is working toward upholding the charter.
*Weapon and Body: After making a weapon attack, you follow up with a punch or kick as an additional attack, all as part of the same action in one round. The two attacks can be directed at different foes. Make a separate attack roll for each attack. You remain limited by the amount of Effort you can apply on one action. Anything that modiﬁes your attack or damage applies to both attacks, unless it is tied speciﬁcally to your weapon. Action.
*Bears up to 4 cyphers.
*On action can activate tattoo sensors which work long range, regardless of line of sight:
-Temperature (including degrees of heat, the location of heat sources, and so on)

*Soothe the Savage (2 Intellect Points): You calm a nonhuman beast within 30 feet (9 m). You must speak to it (although it doesn’t need to understand your words), and it must see you. It remains calm for one minute or for as long as you focus all your attention on it. The GM has ﬁnal say over what counts as a nonhuman beast, but unless some kind of deception is at work, you should know whether you can affect a creature before you attempt to use this ability on it. Aliens, extradimensional entities, very intelligent creatures, and automatons never count. Action.
*Improved Beast Companion and Mount: Mataeus can move and you can attack on your turn, or he can attack foes when you do. Perception at level 6, so +18, w/ 4 points of damage per attack.
*Communication (2 Intellect Points):
You can convey a basic concept to a creature that normally can’t speak or understand speech. The creature can also give you a very basic answer to a simple question. Action.
*Beast Eyes (3 Intellect Points):
You can sense through Mateus’ senses if it is within 1 mile (1.6 km) of you. This effect lasts up to ten minutes. Action to establish.
*Beast Call (5 Intellect Points):
You summon a single level 4 beast to help you temporarily. These creatures do your bidding for as long as you focus your attention, but you must use your action each turn to direct them. Creatures are native to the area and arrive under their own power, so if you’re in an unreachable place, this ability won’t work. Action.
*Control the Savage (6 Intellect Points) You can control a calm nonhuman beast within 30 feet (9 m). You control it for as long as you focus all your attention on it, using your turn each round. Aliens, extradimensional entities, very intelligent creatures, and automatons never count. Action.

A cypher, terrorizer. It emits a long-range ray that inﬂicts 4 points of damage. However, it also wracks living targets with incredible pain. Those struck by the ray must make a Might defense roll or lose their next turn, consumed in pain. A terrorizer has a depletion of 1 in 1d10.
Cypher: Gravity Nullifier, for one hour, the user can float into the air, moving vertically (but not horizontally without some other action, such as pushing along the ceiling) up to a short distance per round. The user must weigh less than 300 pounds.
Pair of tiny metal rods that, when brought within 1 inch (2.5 cm) of each other,
vibrate exactly ﬁfteen minutes before the sun rises on any given day.
Oddity: Cylinder that clears the air of smoke, foul smells and the like in an enclosed room in one minute’s time
Countermeasures: Two rounds after being activated, the device creates an invisible field that fills an area within short range and lasts for one minute. The field scrambles the electronic processes, scrambling most technological devices and making them inoperable. Intelligent devices cannot take actions during this time. The effect lasts as long as they remain in the field.
Defoliant: One chlorophyl-based plant of a level lower than 6 is instantly killed.
Invisible Armor Nodule: For the next 28 hours, the armor the cypher is attached to is invisible, making the wearer appear to be unarmored.
Living Armor Skin
Form: When not afﬁxed to a creature, this looks like a film of skin
Effect: When worn over normal skin, this organic material adheres and conforms to the creature’s body shape. The wearer is trained in Might defense tasks to resist poison and disease. Further, she has +2 to Armor with no hindrances. However, she cannot wear armor over the living sheath because it’s too bulky.
Depletion: 1 in 1d100 (checked each day while the sheath is worn)
Chiron disturbs controlled animals, increasing the difficulty one step if he’s within 20 feet.

Three things to defend/vitally important:
-Advancement of humanity
Three things he loathes:
-Animal abuse or neglect or needless suffering
-is a mutant
One deeply personal goal:
-To see the Knights understand that mutants are not the enemy
-A game board piece from a game his grandfather taught him when he was a child
Reason to be on the Wandering Walk:
Knights wander, dispensing justice and obliterating all that threatens the advancement of humanity.
Xudablu was born and raised in a small village in Ghan. When he was in his early teens he was spending time in the forest when his village was attacked and massacred by an abnormally large band of murden. The first he knew of the situation was as he followed an approaching group of Knights to the site.
They fought the murden, slaying many and chasing the rest off before checking for survivors. There was only him. They offered to take him to Ledon when they had slain the rest of the murden horde and he took one small item from the burnt wreckage of his hometown and went with them to see justice done.
He spent a few years in an orphanage in Ledon, then, when he was old enough, he joined the Knights. He firmly believes in justice though he does feel that the Knights have some things mixed up. He is now a Knight, commissioned to uphold the Charter on his travels, dispensing justice and obliterating all that threatens the advancement of humanity.
