Choi Ada (蔡少芬)

{$caption}

Choi Ada is both blessed and cursed. She is blessed with a a birth into a powerful family with near unlimited infulence but she is also cursed by a dominating and utterly merciless father.

She is the product of her father's conquest. A powerful Yakuza Boss' wife forced to be his mistress on top of her husband's still twitching corpse. After the point was proven the woman was tossed aside to live as living example of Choi Roy's influence and paraded when needed to cower any upstart. Eventually she bore him one child.

As soon as his paternity was confirmed Ada was stripped from her mother's arms and raised by one master after another and was sleeved into Fury even as a child. Bathed in blood and fire she grew to be one of Shui Fong Triad's top assassins.

When Choi Roy managed to acquire a mutagen robbed from a Hypercorp Research Project that supposedly endowed PSI powers he had a perfect test subject. The mutagen succeeded and Choi Ada became one of the most powerful Async in the System.

PSI Delta: PSI Blade

{$caption}

This power is Choi Ada (蔡少芬)'s unique PSI Stab. She can project from each arm (usually from the wrist or her closed fingers) a beam of purple energy that is only visible to those with Radiation Sense (or equilvant) Optics. It is functionally the same as a PSI Stab attack, but is sustained and has a range of 4'.

PSI TYPE: Active
DURATION: Sustained

ACTION: Complex
STRAIN MOD: -3

RANGE: 4'
SKILL: Unarmed

PSI Sword is an sustained power that arguments her unarmed combat skill. It inflicts direct damage to the target's brain and nervous system. Each successful attack inflicts 1d10 + (WIL ÷ 10, round up) damage. Increase the damage by +5 if an Excellent Success (MoS of 30+) is scored.

  • Unlike other Sustained PSI Powers, this power does not impart a distraction penalty of -10 when sustained.
    • However the Character roll PSI Strain every minute the power is sustained
  • The Range of this attack is capped at 4' as it is a physical blade. It does not increase against a Async.
  • The Attack is also no longer "Touch" there for the +20 Attack bonus no longer apply
  • Beam of purple energy is only visible to those with Radiation Sense (or equilvant) Optics


PSI Delta: Mind Probe

{$caption}

This is a far more powerful form of Deep Scan. It has a longer range (2x the Close Range for PSI powers) and more strain (1 higher). The higher strain means it is not a power to be wantonly used.

PSI TYPE: Active
DURATION: Sustained

ACTION: Complex
STRAIN MOD: +2

RANGE: Double Close
SKILL: Sense

Deep Scan is a more intrusive version of Thought Browse (p. 228), made to extract information from the targeted individual. If the Opposed Test succeeds, the async telepathically invades the target’s mind and can probe it for information. For every 10 full points of MoS the async achieves on their test, they retrieve one piece of information. Each item takes one full Action Turn to retrieve, during which the sleight must be sustained. The target is aware of this mental probing, though they will not know what information the async acquired.
