EXCEED CHARGE


Xicos



Description:
A 100 foot tall crystal that silently floats above the ground. It's rock hard surface is constantly swirling with an entrancing array of patterns and colors.

History:
Xicosís history is shrouded in mystery. All that is known is that it was found buried deep within a mountain, exposed by a particularly aggressive megacite mining operation. Workers initially reported hallucinations and other effects. Eventually, the site went silent. When the company sent forces to investigate they found Xicos floating ominously above the wreckage of the mines, contact was soon lost with the investigators soon after.

Qualities:
Huge [+6]

Crystal Body[+4] - Xicos is a giant crystal structure, he does not eat or breath, drawing sustenance from directly absorbing megacite. His crystalline form also offers him protection against attacks, being harder than the fleshy bodies of most other beings.

Hypnotic Glow[+2] - Xicosís body glows with an array of light and color that most living things find entrancing.

Psionic Power[+4] - Xicos is a giant crystal, lacking in a mouth, limbs, or any means to interact with its surrounding except. However, it does have exceptionally powerful psionic abilities. It uses these to move, to interact with the world, to defend itself, even to communicate.

Diplomacy[-2]

Dread[+2]


Abilities:

Teleportation[+4] - Using its psionic powers, Xicos bends space to allow itself or other to move instantaneously to other locations.

Psionic Illusions [+4] - Xicos can create illusions by projecting sensory information directly onto the minds of observers, allowing it to replicate sight, sound, smell, taste, and even touch. Due to the power the mind has over the body, living things can also experience harmful effects from taking illusory damage. However, it has no effect on things without minds to project onto like cameras (though if an operator is within range, it will affect what they see through the camera).

Energy Ray[+4] - Drawing on the energy stored within its crystal body, Xicos can direct that energy to external sources in a terrifying beam capable of overloading energy systems and burning whatever else it might impact.

Vacuum Wave[+4] - One of Xicos' most devastating abilities, by using its telekinesis to create pockets of vacuum and then letting them collapse, it can create shockwaves and pressure fronts, or with sufficient effort it can leave the bubbles intact long enough to suffocate whatever is unfortunate enough to be trapped inside.

Crystal Buds[+2] - Xicos can spawn small extensions of itself for surveillance or other purposes.

Crystal Blessing[+6] - By deploying its energy, Xicos can invest that energy into another being in a manner which significantly empowers them for the duration of the effect.

Hunger: 20
