Supernatural Abilities

Titanoboa

Athene has all the strengths of a giant mythical snake, though some come more naturally than others.

Echidna's Body - 6 + T3 - Superhuman stamina, armor-hard scales, the ability to swallow objects much larger than her head, and surprisingly adept swimming skills. (Endurance/Toughness skill replacement, Athleticism skill replacement)

Echidna's Senses - 6 + T3 - Athene has a keen sense of smell and is sensitive to infrared and vibrations. (Perception skill replacement)

Echidna's Lure- 3 + T3 - She inherited a powerful magical affinity from her mother, but has just begun learning how to apply it.

She's learned how to plant suggestions in the minds of people and animals. (Persuasion skill replacement)

She's learned how to enrage a single enemy into attacking her in melee combat. (+1 to roll if made within three turns after defeating an enemy due to Tail Axe of the Terrific Protector (Artifact)

She's learned how to detect the presence of minds.

She's learned how to locate the position of minds.

Weaknesses

Athene has all the weaknesses of a giant snake as well, among them her size, intolerance of the cold, periodic molting and strong animal instincts. (Severe)

Athene is reliant on her medication to keep her more monstrous side in check. Starved of medication for long enough, she becomes hostile, territorial and power-hungry. (Flavor)

Personal History

Athene was hatched to Echidna, the Mother of Monsters, on April 30th, 2004. She spent her early years with her mother in her underground GWU prison on the Greek island of Keros.

Due to her nature, and partially due to her sheltered upbringing, Athene's mental development is not on par with her peers. While communicative and sociable, she has issues with abstract thought and is completely inept at math.

Through hard work, therapy, and the supportive social environment of Sunnybrook, Athene had learned she can do most any mental task her peers can do; it just takes her longer. She is still particularly slow at math.

As Athene progresses, her mind is quicker, her thoughts are crisper. She can no longer be considered "slow" for her age. …Except at math. Still a little behind, there.

Miscellaneous

Kerensky's Favorite: Athene is virtually unbeatable in any Battletech-derived game.

Master Masseuse: Athene gives great massages.
