"...To live on as we have is to leave behind joy and love and companionship because we know it to be transitory, of the moment. We know it will turn to ash. Only those whose lives are brief can imagine that love is eternal."

[Variable Power 12 (psychic descriptor, multiple powers)]· Lorien can develop any number of powers, as long as it does not exceed rank 20, or 60 power points in cost. I base most variable powers off of how expensive I want a power to cost, when compared to the characters power level. It helps me keep things into perspective. Besides Power Levels are quite different in scale. Builder’s Notes:
Let’s face it, this is one of the builds that technically counts as a PL X character. But I took it under myself to at the very least try to put Lorien down into statistics we can all enjoy, especially since many people have asked for this particular build. Now, granted these stats are only in his Physical sapien form. He has an energy form, which is very much similar in appearance to the Vorlons except on a greater scale. They are extremely huge beings.
I also decided to include several rules which I created for my Godlike setting, they came in very handy to cover situations I feel that Lorien could do. Granted this is a Version 1.1 I guess you can say, the more I refine this build the better it will get. As we know from the shows, Lorien cannot create life but he can bring someone back from the brink of death. He can stop time that is quite evident by what little we see of his abilities. At the same time I tried to be as frugal as possible with someone like this. I hope it satisfies everyone.
