Jamathial, Celestial Dragon Rocker

   Jamathial is one of the more publicly-known Dragons – although she’s known as Jamathial Weaver-of-Dreams, a rock star who’s addicted to spectacular light shows, high living, and giving concerts longer than any normal human being could handle – and exalting in it. Her attention-seeking has caused her occasional problems in the past, but – given today’s ever-smaller world – it may make it progressively more difficult for her to shift identities in the future.

   Outside of her talents with light, Jamathial has better-than-average control of her personal structure and a few mental tricks – but she’s basically fairly typical for an adolescent celestial dragon: she can’t yet maintain her shields and pull off anything but minor tricks and often has to resort to unsophisticated bludgeoning. That sort of thing is why she has some minions with an invocation or two each. She is working on a way to extend her shields to protect them as well.

e-8 Life Support (total); Always On: -½; Young children must be stabalized either by their parents or by being embedded in a biosphere. They cannot survive in space unaided for long. Older or “adolescent” children may or may not have learned to survive indefinitely in space, but can for at least a little while. In either case, youngsters need to eat a good deal, simply to add mass. Their sense of taste and smell is also somewhat limited.

24 Dragonlore Multipower (60-pt reserve); The Dragonlore channels the living magic of a dragon’s supernatureal life-force into various effects. This can easily overstrain the unskilled and leaves a lot of information – the user’s species, sex, rough power levels, state of health, approximate age, rough level of skill, etc – available to skilled observers. It requires an unmodified or “flat” skill roll to use (-.25) and a normal skill check to change slots (-.5), has a side effect of draining 2d6 Stun and 2d6 End if you fail to use it (-.5), and creates a unique power signature as above (-.25).

60+ Disadvantages
  Physical Limitations :
10 Poor manipulative abilities as dragons (Infrequently, Greatly)
10 Poor understanding of “normal” beings. (Frequently, Slightly)
10 Inherently Magical. Mood and health somewhat affected by current magical environment, readily detected by mages, etc. (Infrequently, Greatly)
10 Can be – eventually – beaten into submission. This temporarily changes “Arrogant Predator” to “Servile & Submissive” – at least long enough for a mission. (Infrequently, Greatly)
10 Adolescent: Physically roughly equivalent to 13-16, Mentally younger. This causes the same kind of problems it causes humans. (Frequently, Slightly)
   
  Psychological Limitations :
20 Demands constant attention and admiration (Very Common, Strong)
15 Greedy (Common, Strong)
5 Mild Claustrophobia. This won’t stop them, but things like sneaking thru confined spaces just don’t tend to occur to them. (Uncommon, Moderate)
   
20 Distinctive Features; Dragon. Concealable with magic.; Concealability: Concealable, 10; Reaction: Extreme, +10
20 Prohibition (QV; Mystic Masters sourcebook) (8-); Capabilities: More Powerful, 15; Non-combat Influence: Extensive, +5; Geographical Area: Unlimited, -0; Actions: Hunting, ×1; Punishment: Harsh, 0
; Must obey the strictures of the Codex Draconis – honorable combat with other dragons, discouraging all-out duels (“Friendly” little dominance-struggles are fine), always doing what they can to frustrate the Great Old Ones, and so on) on pain of being ostracized – and possibly regularly beaten up, enslaved, or even (In really EXTREME cases) slain by all the other dragons on the planet.
15 Hunted; Minions of the Great Old Ones (8-); Capabilities: As Powerful, 10; Non-combat Influence: Extensive, +5; Geographical Area: Unlimited, -0; Actions: Hunting, ×1; Punishment: Harsh, 0
15 Accidental Change to true draconic form when exposed to space conditions. (14-)
15 Secret Identity
; This can get pretty complicated between their longevity, shapeshifting, and pursuers, dragons may have quite a few ID’s. Fortunately, these only tend to involve the host culture; they generally know who each other are.
10 Public Identity: Yes, she has both.
10 Rivalry; Any other young dragons of the same sex in the vicinity (IE; On the same planet).; Situation: Professional and Romantic, 10; Position: Equal, +0; Rival: NPC, +0
; Dominance-squabbles are an occasional aspect of this, but aren’t too serious as far as dragons are concerned.
5 Reputation. Almost anyone can recognize a dragon and has a general idea of what they do. (11-); Only applies to true dragonform.: -1
