Interesting build, funny Banshee picture. Though it should be noted that Banshee are more "unearthly energy beings" than "creatures of the wilderness". Minor nitpick: it should be "ignores concealment", not "pierces concealment" in her sight. The first allows her to see through smoke, darkness, stealth, cloaking and the like. The second would allow her to see through walls ala x-ray vision.
If you are interested in playing her, I'd like to see more of her character and everyday life in her backstory.
Fixed on my version of the sheet, haven't edited yet.
I am working on her backstory.
Hmm. Maybe he is a splice of two separate alien races inserted into human. That would explain his control powers and pyrokinesis not having a common basis. Either Siren or Vampire can do nervous system control (depends on whether you want the descriptor to be subsonic or psionic) and his limitation to snakes might be a matter of confidence/training; that's all he's been taught to control so far. The Pyrokinesis can be Banshee or Daemon. Given such a source for his abilities, he would have an affinity with the Olympians - if an artificial one.
Nitpick: it should be noted that most aliens aren't based on the same mechanisms as life on Earth. Vampyr and their ilk carry cellular info in nanoviruses and bionanites as opposed to DNA. Banshee bodies are organic but also energy constructs. Daemons and Vodun aren't organic at all. So that research would have been more like blind experimentation (because those lifeforms are way more advanced than terran ones we think we know) rather than genetic cloning.
Idea: Kevin may not be the only result of this experimentation. In the animated series, their scientists had the "great" idea to fuse alien traits into ants. Naturally, the ants grew to the size of elephants, their exoskeleton enhanced with nanocomposites was sort of missile proof and they were kinda agressively expansive. I might want to introduce stuff like that in the game.
I will try working a build based on this notion... with a more "plausible" explanation (thanks for that) as to why two such divergent power strains exist the concept has become far more interesting. I was also thinking more psionic than subsonic for the abilities. Since Fiona was built with Banshee affinity, and given the serpentine traits, I'm thinking Kevin is more of a Daemon.
Given that you answered to both characters concepts that I have presented, I figure I should ask if you have a preference to concept so far?
