Character Opinions

Trained to use Psychic ability by someone ill-equipped to do so.

You have every right to dig your own grave, where I’m involved, you won’t be digging anyone elses.

I’m more comfortable in a vacsuit that dirtside.

Doesn’t care about his family. Likely ran from home with his Psychic mentor. Envisioning Klaus from Umbrella Academy. Victor is open for bringing the family into this conversation.

Character Opinions

Grew up in a large family with many siblings. An instigator in the family, but also a mediator. Tries to talk down violence.

Knows how to twist words. Looks to keep his hands from getting dirty. A bit like Grima Wormtongue.

Oldest of the five siblings is the sister. I’m reminded of the Chronicles of Amber by Roger Zelazny

Character Opinions

Doesn’t have early memories of life. Doesn’t spend much time with the same group of people. Assume’s people will screw him over. (Hoping to learn about Found Family) Doesn’t care about wealth at anyone’s experience. A lot like Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Opportunistic and will usually change his commitments when they arrive.

Starting to see Vern Shultz as a friend.

Character Opinions

“I reserve my psych abilities for only necessary reasons. Not flashy about it.”

Kenku

One of the sophonts of in the Thel Sector.

They view life through the lenses of Greed and Journeying; See page 294 in Stars without Number: Revised Edition.

Kenku are opportunists and form their structures accordingly. They have scattered throughout the sector and do their best to either blend in (through mimicry and heavy clothes) or stick out. They are often regarded as thieves.

Game Statistics

Mimicry
Mimic any sound they have heard. Kenku do not have a "default" voice, but instead use mimicry to form words and sentences.
Sense the Need
Once per session may use /Sense the Need/, though it's really not a psychic thing, its just that they like to pick up all kinds of baubles.
Slow Fall
They take half damage from any falls.
Not Psychic
Kenku may not be a Psychic nor Partial Psychic.
