About "Shakti" शक्ति
The one known as Shakti bore responsible for all reality. From one end of the island to the other, every creature was born, lived, and died under her control. She spent her days under the tree of knowledge, casting her mind about to the furthest reaches of reality, communing with the tree, and with the creatures and spirits of her realm.
Some event beyond the boundaries of her world caused the borders of another dimension to slam into the borders of her own. The limits of her small pocket of reality flexed and then shattered at the impact.
Shakti awoke in a strange world, filled with strange creatures, and unfamiliar dangers. In the absence of her realm and the comforting presence of the Bodhi tree, she lost much of her power. However, she discovered that she had retained some vestage of the divine, and was far from powerless.
She resolved to learn this world, find her tree, if it still survived somewhere, and then gain the power she needed to restore her realm.
Shakti is a tall woman who appears mostly human, with a few distinctions; besides being unusually tall, she has six arms, three extending from each shoulder. Her features generally suggest south asian ancestry, but her skin bears a bluish cast to the otherwise dark complexion.
Extra Action x2
Spell Points +5 PPE
Spirit d8 starting (d12+2 Max)
Celestial Silver: For any offensive
effect, a celestial silver Trapping counts as both holy and silver for purposes of Weaknesses. For example, smite can be cast on a weapon and it is a blessed silver weapon for the duration. This is extremely effective against vampires, among other things.
Courage: Ongoing beneficial powers grant the recipient +2 on Spirit checks against Fear and Intimidation for an increase of +1 PPE, lasting the duration of the power.
Gift of Life: +2 to Faith roll for healing or greater healing but gain a Fatigue level which can only be restored with an hour of rest (succor cannot restore).
Holy Presence: A beneficial power with a duration, cast by the Mystic on herself, grants her +2 Charisma and +2 on Intimidation checks, as she is surrounded by a holy aura. The glow makes her easier to see and target, giving foes +2 to attack and Notice rolls against her.
Holy Ward: For a beneficial powerwith a duration cast on someone, the caster foregoes the usual raise effect in place of granting Arcane Resistance for the duration.
Soul Blast: For direct damage powers, increase the base cost by 2 PPE to ignore all physical armor (including power and robot armor), but targets add half their Spirit to Toughness when determining the damage effect.
