Royyyy, I don't like having been made to look (even more) crazy, you know! …But at least you're willing to help and really fuzzy. Oh also I like your cyber cat thing but never read the comics and even missed the movie but it's neat? It looks like you'll be our tank, though! Remember to manage aggro responsibly and try not to overwork your poor innocent party healer. <3

Trait Subname Effect
Evoker Rank 2
Size 1 This creature is unusually large or unusually small. You take 1 Advantage to Grapple tests against targets smaller than you per rank of difference, but 1 Disadvantage to hit. Conversely, you take 1 Advantage to hit targets larger than you per rank of difference. You gain 1 point of Unnatural Toughness for each rank above 3. 3 is the average size.
Multiple Legs 1 This creature has multiple legs, making it faster. X represents each pair of legs (ie. 2 = 3 pairs of legs total). Creatures with multiple legs add X to their AB to determine movement.
Cat Form - Roy is seemingly a cat. He has the Size (2) trait and Multiple Legs (1), and starts with the Catfall and Cat's Eyes talents. He takes a +20 bonus to agility tests, but because he has no hands, any tests that would require the use of hands not only does not gain this benefit, but also takes a -20 penalty on top of it.

Exemplary Base Effect Rank 4 Improvement Rank 7 Improvement Rank 10 Improvement
Noble Sacrifice You start with the Guardian talent. Each time you take a Wound or more whilst actively protecting another person (such as through the Guardian or Taunt talents, or jumping in front of an attack), you gain +1 AP to all areas for the rest of the day, which stacks to a maximum of +3. You may only gain a single bonus per action (ie. you can't gain more than +1 AP per Guardian etc). Light in Dark Places: Once per day, you may spend a Fate Point; your Confidants ignore the effects of fatigue and injuries for a number of rounds each equal to your S-Link Rank with them. You reroll Evasion tests when protecting allies with Guardian, Taunt or other self-sacrificing actions. Furthermore, you can use Guardian on any ally within basic Move distance. Light in Dark Places now provides an Advantage to all of your tests for every Confidant with an injury or a dead Persona, to a max of +30. Furthermore, spending activating Light in Dark Places grants all allies a 'spare' wound which they can choose to lose in place of any other wound they would ordinarily suffer.

I am Expendable

  • Roy has dedicated his life to the 'cause', that is holding back the Sea of Chaos. It is a core part of his identity and he believes that he is expendable if it would mean advancing the cause. This allows Roy to take astonishing sacrifices in the name of the cause but it also makes him reckless, as he does not value his own life.

Persecution Complex

  • Roy has spent more than anyone will ever know trying to hold back the Sea of Chaos, a long story of thirty years of sacrifice and loneliness. That sacrifice has been utterly thankless and unrewarded. When exposed to thoughts or comments that hit this nerve he can become furious and socially reckless, but the sheer sense of injustice he harbours also allows him to conquer many fears and mental effects.

Melee Talents

Name Subname Effect
Tier One
Guardian Whenever an adjacent ally is attacked, you can choose to oppose the attack in their place with your parry, assuming you have the right equipment. After this, attacks aimed at you gain Advantage for each Guardian you use.
Unarmed Warrior Your unarmed attacks deal +1 damage and no longer count as unarmed.
Wrestler You may reroll and take the preferred result the following tests: when others test against you to act when grappled; when you test against grapplers to act without interference.
Takedown You gain an advantage to Tricks, and enemies' chance attacks on you for failing take an extra disadvantage.
Tier Two
Counter Attack Whenever an enemy attacks you in melee and you successfully parry or dodge it, you may make a Chance Attack against them. This still counts against the Chance Attack limit.
Space Defender Enemies who pass within range of your melee weapon without attacking or engaging you grant you an instant chance attack on them. If you inflict a wound, the target is stopped in its tracks adjacent to you.
Curbstomp When grappling a prone target, you gain two advantages to all attack and evasion tests against that target.
Suplex Whenever you successfully initiate a grapple, you may also count it as a successful Knockdown or Shove, with you being free to move with the target as they go in order to maintain grapple.
