Harlock alternate version
Harlock has lived most of his short life as a brute. Even in his early adolescence he was employed as a bouncer and a brute for the taverns. Abused by his employers for hurting customers too early and being too friendly to other customers. Harlock had lived with constant contradicting instructions. Harlock has known little other than fighting and punishment so far in his life.
Now in his new job he wants to be the best possible warrior for his team. But he is still concerned about accidentally killing the wrong bad guys or hurting an ally.

Special Abilities
Half-Giant
First bred as slave-warriors by an ancient sorcerer-queen, half-giants combine the strength and dull wits of their giant forebears with the agility and adaptability of humans. Easily swayed, half-giants tend to adopt the culture and attitudes of those around them. Most stand between 10 and 12 feet tall and can weigh almost a ton.
  • Massive: Half-giants are Size +3 and have Reach +1.
  • Muscled: Half-giants start with d8 Strength (max d12+5) and the Brute Edge.
  • Stout: Half-giants start with d6 Vigor (max d12+1) and Hardy, meaning a second Shaken result doesn't cause a Wound.
  • Big Ol' Bottomless Pit: Half-giants suffer a -2 to Trait rolls when using gear that isn't made for their kind; appropriate weapons and equipment cost double and he needs to eat and drink four times as much as a human.
  • Ungainly: Half-giants are clumsy and suffer -1 to all Agility rolls (but not related skills).
  • Dense: Half-giants are not known for brains; they suffer -1 to Smarts rolls (but not related skills).
  • Impressionable: Half-giants are easily swayed and tend to mimic those around them. They suffer -1 to Spirit Rolls (but not related skills).
  • No Mind for Magic: Half-giants are prohibited from taking Arcane Background: Magic.
Psychic Warrior
  • +1 die-type to Fighting and Psionics
  • Arcane Background: Psionics (Uses Vigor as the linked Attrribute)
  • Adept: May use select powers as a Free Action (Boost Trait)
  • Gains access to Psychic Weaponry, a special Power Modifier usable with boost trait, smite and warrior’s gift. Manifests as growing talons or summoning a blade of psychic energy; regardless of trappings, the user gains the Claws racial ability while the power is active. Additional cost in PP is equal to racial ability cost (+2 to +4 points, depending on Claw damage and AP).

Parry: 7 Toughness: 11 (0) Size: 3 Reach: 1 (2 w/halberd)

  • No Talent. The character is naturally psionic-resistant and may never take Arcane Background (Psionics). Psionic skill rolls targeting the character suffer a -2 penalty (even if cast by allies!) and psionic damage is reduced by 2, as well. This stacks with the Arcane Resistance Edge.

Fighter
Skilled warriors trained for both individual combat and mass battle, fighters may be soldiers in a sorcerer-king’s army, tribal warlords or house guards for a merchant company. The mainstay of any military force, they also find employ as wandering swords for hire.
  • +1 die-type to Battle and Fighting
  • Soldier or Berserk
  • Choose 2 Combat or Command Edges, ignoring rank requirements
  • Any time a fighter takes the Trademark Weapon Edge, it applies to a class of weapons rather than an individual weapon — use the list of Skill Specializations (SWADE p. 141) as a guide for appropriate weapon groups.

Psychic Warrior version of Harlock is missing an Edge -- his framework gives him either Danger Sense, Fast Healer or Chi. Also, just a note, using growth will kick him up to Large scale, giving him -2 to hit normies and them a +2 ...

Fighter version of Harlock is good. Only note there is that the "No Talent" Wild Talent penalty applies to allies, too, so would make it harder to use arcane protection or dispel or whatever to help him.
GM Bennies: 7/7
