The Sanguine Squad: The Transformed
An experimental medical procedure introduced an advanced nanite colony called AMBix (Advance Micromachine Biomatrix) into Quicksilver's body. The AMBix can change the configuration and qualities of her body as well as repair damage. It also lets her communicate with and infect electronics and computer based technology.
Hero Name: Quicksilver
Real Name: Nora Silverman
- White/Silvery Hair
- Strange eyes
- Metallic Flesh
- Unnerving Costume
(She can use her nanites to give her any apparent clothing she wants, but much like poor CGI, if she tries anything fancy, it appears artificial.)
Transmuting Flesh, Technopathy
The Andvanced Micromachine Biomatrix ("AMBix") has supplanted much of Nora's body. She can use it to shape her flesh to perform different functions, protect herself, and repair damage, but she has limited control of her appearance. The AMBix can also communicate with, infect, and control electronic devices, including modern and advanced computer technology.
I Am Not My Body
When you take a powerful physical blow, you may roll as if you had two fewer conditions marked. If you do, on a 10+ you must choose to lose control of yourself in a terrible way.
Not Human Enough
When you directly engage a threat in a terrifying fashion, mark a condition to choose an additional option, even on a miss.
Wish I Could Be
When you comfort or support someone, if you tell them what you most envy about them, you can roll + Freak instead of + Mundane.
Alien Tech (Outsider)
When you alter a human device with your alien technology, roll + Freak. On a hit, you create a device that can do something impossible once and then fizzle. When you roll a 10+, choose one:
- it works exceptionally well
- you get an additional use out of it
On a miss, the device works, but it has a completely unintended side effect that the GM will reveal when you use it.
After contracting a degenerative disease, Nora was healed by an experimental therapy. However, during one of her treatments, the hospital was raided by government agents, and the scientists at MK Labs fled.
Who were you before? A popular young woman from a working class family that couldn’t afford the expensive treatments to make her well. When her family was approached by MK labs, they leaped at the apparent chance for salvation.
When did you change? What caused it? When she was 15, Nora was taken in for medical treatment at MK Labs. The doctors and technicians said the “adaptive micromachine biomatrix” (AMBix) technology would compensate for issues that her disease was causing. When she was 16 undergoing one of the treatments, something went wrong. The AMBix became a disease of its own. It almost killed her, but the nanites eventually entered a symbiotic state with her.
Who, outside of the team, is helping you understand your new body? Patrick Quinn, a former medical resident working for MK labs. He was the one who turned MK labs in for their practices, but doesn’t know as much as the (fugitive) senior scientists do. Nora is very thankful for his help, but despite the fact he turned MK labs in, he was blocked from pursuing medical practice. Nora calls this “unjust as shit.”
Why don’t you just try to hide yourself away? Sometimes she feels like doing just that, but her sense of justice demands that she speak up and step out. Quinn stood up for her, now she needs to stand up for other people in need.
Why do you care about the team? In part, because it lets her play out her over-developed sense of justice. But more, she misses being close to people and people in her former life she considered close friends turned on her. Though she has become untrusting of people she now calls “flakes”, she still has that need for a human connection.
Brick comforted Quicksilver when she was at her lowest.
Gem knew Quicksilver before she changed.
