Fiction Friday - Blue Lightning (Aberrant Superhero)

Fern Kali is always posting stories from her Aberrant home game, so I asked around my gaming groups for a copy, and most of them had given away or sold their books years ago. One of the old guys did still have his 1st edition book, so I borrowed it to see what I could come up with.  I can't quite tell, but I think her dice pools are shit, and am I reading this right, that even with her Invulnerability, every energy attack that hits her has a 40% chance to cause one Health level of damage?  What kind of crappy "Invulnerability" is that?

---

Real Name: Alysa Jian Kováč

Background & Origin:  She is Czech, and was studying journalism at university, doing modelling to pay the bills, when she joined up with some stormchasers on a lark as their eye-candy and video-blogger. She created a niche for herself on the webcasts, but really fell in love with the adrenaline rush of the storm chasing itself.

Things were looking bright until the day a freak lightning bolt destroyed the vehicle she was traveling in, killing everyone except her.  The accident unlocked her nova powers, and the survivors guilt drove her to become a "superhero."

Combat Tactics: She flies and throws lightning. She foolishly stands her ground against other energy projectors, and tends to over-panic against everyone else, especially anyone using guns.

Personality Traits: She is a total extrovert, willing to just walk up to anyone and say "hello."

Appearance:  5'9", 145 lbs., natural brunette, but frequently changes the shape and color. Her hair grows three times faster than nornal, so she is constantly changing the style.

Powers: She flies, hurls lightning, and is nearly immune to energy attacks. She is fluent in her native Czech and speaks fluent, accented English.

Notes: Model unknown. Character by I.A. Riley, March, 2016.
