Miss Suss Frizz-Bee
4 inches standing up
Originating from a realm where the dominant mammals are rodents and psychic abilities were considered the same as magic, Miss Suss Frizz-Bee seemed like an average field mouse -- from a family of agricultural sorts. However, when her 'magical' prowess revealed itself in a rather spectacular manner (she telekinetically moved her family's house to a safer location in their fields), her family saved up to send her to the magic university in the central city of their kingdom.
She never arrived.
After her little caravan was inundated by an unexpected storm, Miss Frizz found herself the only survivor, and in a place VERY different than where she'd been before. Everything was much, much bigger than she'd ever experienced before -- including her 'magical' abilities.
Powerful Pipsqueak Psychic
For her size, Miss Frizz can command an almost mind-boggling amount of magical power -- about on par with an average human Psychic
Invoke: When she unleashes the full potential of her powers
Compel: Using that much power is bound to make her a target. A tiny, very squishy target.
Itty Bitty Little Mouse
She's a field mouse. If she eats too much, she MIGHT weigh a full ounce.
Invoke: Being tiny can be useful, as she can fit through and into places that are too small even for a human child's hand.
Compel: She can VERY easily suffer very severe injuries if someone really tries to hit her. And she looks exactly like a rather common prey animal. Every hawk, cat, dog, and human around will initially see her as little more than a pest.
It's difficult enough to get respect as a human. Imagine how badly people underestimate Miss Frizz because she's a mouse.
Invoke: When doing or saying something that demands the respect of others.
Compel: When being a mouse overrides any chance of being taken seriously.
That's What Friends Are For
This is a big and scary world. The only way that Miss Frizz stands a chance is with friends to help her along her way.
Invoke: Calling upon or relying upon friends to help her in dangerous situations.
Compel: Finding herself in trouble without a single person she can rely upon.
The most basic expression of this talent is mindspeak, allowing one or more minds to communicate to one another with mere thoughts. From there telepaths learn to influence others thoughts in ways both subtle and direct: planting ‘suggestions’, broadcasting a simple thought that says ‘you don’t see me’ or even outright attempting to take over someone’s body. Reading others thoughts as they become hostile, or even as they form the intent to attack can also give a telepath some major advantages.
Inhuman Senses: Hearing and Smell (1)
As a mouse, Miss Frizz has exceptionally keen senses of hearing and smell. Gain a +2 to all Notice and Investigate checks in which these senses apply.
Major Gateway: Psychic (1)
Yours is the power of the mind. Whether you can see into the astral realm, hear the thoughts of others or make your will manifest as physical force, you have a gift that sets you apart and elevates you to the levels few on Rifts Earth ever reach.
Telekinetics is the study of turning the will into pure force and for as simple as that sounds it has a lot of application. ‘Arms reach’ becomes an antiquated notion for telekinetics. If they can see it, they can affect it (or at least try). Pushing, pulling, lifting, levitating. All of that is simple. Some psychics can take it to an extreme, using their mind to accelerate small objects like a firearm, or a railgun. Others learn to put up walls and fields of pure force, blocking things out or holding them up.
Discipline: Mental Defenses
Control of the mind is absolutely essential to a psychic and this is nowhere more true than when danger rears its head. Some times the best thing or the only thing that can be done to fortify the mind is to suppress any feelings of fear. Against more esoteric threats, psychics can shield themselves and their companions from having their mental and metaphysical energies harvested by those creatures – such as psi-stalkers – who feed on them. Finally, against mental intrusion psychics can engage their ultimate defense: closing themselves or their companions off. This utterly prevents the use of any psychic power at all, but also prevents any intrusion into the closed off minds.
Inner Strength (1)
Psychics generally grow in power as they learn to train their will. Some have naturally deeper reserves of the mental energies used to employ their gifts.
