BACKGROUND
Emily Adler was born with the proverbial silver spoon in her mouth. The daughter of one of the fifty richest men in Germany and his supermodel wife, Emily had everything she could possibly want in life. An only child, she was groomed to take her father’s place at the head of the family, attending the finest boarding schools in Europe, and was top of the class in everything from Business Ethics to Dance. With a sharp mind and sharper tongue, Emily found that there was nothing she couldn’t do if she put her mind to it. Recently, she discovered that her brain had more capacity than even she could have guessed, as her Esper abilities developed.

PERSONALITY
With her upbringing, it would be easy to dismiss Emily as spoiled or stuck up, but the truth is much different. Emily is not afraid to get her hands dirty, and is more than willing to work towards a goal. She can talk her way into or out of any situation, resorting to her powers only when necessary. She is practical, fearless and a born leader.

Well, I think she completely outclassed everybody at the school in terms of musical talent ;~)
Question: What does she play?
With my luck the Miriachi band will be a horrible reality ;~)

As a side note: At PL8 max saves are +13, not sure you can use Mind Shield. However a single rank of Mind Shield linked with seven ranks of Impervious Will and you have the same general effect. Maxes out your will save and makes you immune to anybody who has any mental based attacks lower than 8.

And yes, the powers are quite powerful... but she's got no defense, and a -1 toughness. If her power doesn't work on the first round chances are she isn't getting a second chance.
She's quite fragile. Alarmingly so. Isn't hard to see why she didn't think she could take on one of her two captors even if she mind controlled the other.

Last question: On Telepathy you have a limited listing (Mind reading). But you also have selective communication. Did you mean Limited to Surface Thoughts?
Sounds like you're trying to make a psychic switchboard setup.

I like her, nice build.

Question though, what skill is her Fascinate in?

Violin. She's an upper-class girl with a long history of private schools, seemed like a skill she'd have mastered, and I had a PP to throw around.

That's what I was going for. A classic Glass Cannon character. She packs a punch, but can't take one.

Mich disallowed Mind Reading, as it's too much of a gamebreaker, but I wanted Emily to be able to have psychic conversations, so we limited the Mind Reading component of Telepathy to surface thoughts, and the Selective Communication was so she could choose to talk to her team-mates, instead of everyone in the area. So yes, in a manner of speaking, a psychic switchboard.

Not too sure on the Mind Shield thing, I must have missed it.

And Arthur, it's in Diplomacy, I probably should have written that down somewhere.

Assuming Fach can actually counter her dad's powers, we might be able to actually save some of these people. I just wish we had some way of talking about the Bad Girl without her hearing us. You underestimate Telepaths until you really need em.

And if comics have taught us anything its that there are always more hostages to be found. So Doc Ock kills a few before Spidey puts him down, so what? Better that than the Doc dies and you have to deal with Lady Octopus. What a waste she was. Good villains are hard to find, but innocent bystanders are a dime a dozen!
The irony is delicious. :)
See? :)

Hmm...with the team having a new face person, as it were, I have a few ideas as to how to change Jason's build.

Did Jason totally just dismiss Martin's idea/statement as inconsequential? Just wanting to make sure I'm not reading that wrong.

No, I posted that before I saw your statement. I may have to go back and edit.

Okay, edited. For that, and other stuff that I blundered on.

Have I mentioned playing a genius is hard?

MIT> Not sure if you caught this, but Emily put the kibosh on Confectionary's attempts to kill the hostage.
Emily got to act first, so the actual attack never had a chance to happen, so the only dead/injured hostage (thus far) is on floor just before the roof.

Thanks for the heads up Arkrite, I absolutely missed that.

I'll edit my post accordingly.
