Drell have eidetic memories, with memory flashbacks often seeming as real to them as the world around them. Drell get +1 to Consult Training.
Species Move – Mind Body Detachment: When you go into battle, roll +Cool. On a 10+, hold 2. On a 7-9, hold 1. At any time during the battle, spend your hold one for one to:
- Ensure a named NPC survives the battle
- Ensure a named NPC does not survive the battle
- The GM will make your intentions come true, if it’s even remotely possible. On a miss, your detachment is too complete, and you’re barely paying attention. Take -1 throughout the battle.
Class Move – Singularity: When you use Singularity in battle, roll +Cool. On a 10+, spend 3, on a 7-9, spend 2. Spend 1 to name a GM character and pull them off their feet, disabling them for one tick. On a miss, you come under concentrated fire now. (If it’s before 9:00, now it’s 9:00).
Class Move – Barrier: When you go into battle, you strengthen your biotic barrier. Roll +Cool. On a 10+, gain +2-barrier, on a 7-9, +1-barrier. This bonus lasts the entire battle, and refreshing your barrier will include the bonus. At any time during the battle you may purge the excess biotic energy. When you do so, select one character within close range per level of bonus barrier and inflict s-harm to them. This ends the move for the rest of the battle. Not compatible with Fortification or Tech Armor.
Class Move – Dominate: When you Dominate a biological NPC, roll +Will. On a 10+, hold 3, on a 7-9, hold 2. At any time, spend your hold 1 for 1 to:
- Make them fight on your behalf. If in battle, this lasts for 1 tick.
- Make them defend you. They take all harm from an attack meant for you.
- Make them die. They take 1 harm per hold spent (ap, ignore shields/barriers)
Class Move – Kinetic Barrier: When you defend a secure position roll +Cool instead of +Hard
Personal Move – Impossible Reflexes: The way you move unencumbered counts as armor. If you’re naked or nearly naked, 2-armor; if you’re wearing non-armor fashion, 1-armor. If you’re wearing armor, use it instead.
Personal Move – Force of Will: You can roll +Will to get the effects of going aggro, without going aggro. Your victim has to be able to see you, but you don’t have to interact. If your victim forces your hand, your uncanny presence counts as a weapon doing s-harm close loud-optional.
Special Move – Weak Link: When you Read a Sitch and succeed, you automatically get “Which enemy is most vulnerable to me?”
- M-5 Phalanx Heavy Pistol (2-harm close loud)
- L5x Implants (2-barrier) with choice of bio-amp (Prodigy, Polaris)
- Bluewire Omni-tool
- Braga – Hx 1
- Saelan – Hx -1
- Prasi – Hx 1
- Fortuna – Hx 3
Class Move: Kinetic Barrier
Aldous Tyd, when he was only 7 years old, was giving to the hanar to be trained as an assassin, as part of the Compact between the hanar and drell. Over the years, while records will show Aldous connected to only 4 contract kills, he states his true total of contract kills is somewhere in the mid 50’s. When asked how that can be, he cryptically states, “I am the gun. I am rarely the bullet.”
Aldous is a powerful biotic that manifested the ability to Dominate individuals. Those under his power can find themselves killing others on his command or dying themselves. This is how Aldous mainly works and he prefers it that way. That is not to say he can’t/won’t get his hands dirty from time to time. One of those times, when enacting revenge for a fallen salarian friend named Ish, he has caught on Omega and given to the Blue Suns. They put him in cryogenic stasis on their floating space prison, Purgatory. He wasn’t in stasis long before his cryogenic stasis was turned off while the station became unstable due to some sort of an attack. He dominated a shuttle pilot and was able to get off the station before it’s complete destruction.
With nowhere to go and life support in the shuttle starting to fail, Aldous found himself saved by a Shadow Broker craft. Since then he has worked for the Shadow Broker through various hanar under his employ so he can still honor the Compact.
