Hero idea #13, Nepenthe

Icon_ElementEnergy Nepenthe, the Telepathic Sympath has arrived in the Community Gallery!

  • A battlefield scientist and psychologist before Zero Day, Nepenthe has seen the horrors of war. Of minds, paralyzed by fear. Soldiers who would never be the same again.
  • As she was consoling a young man who had sustained serious injuries, a rocket hit her tent and flung them across the field, putting her in critical condition. While she was escorted to safety and quickly operated on, she was permanently retired from combat after that.
  • She was allowed to return to her research following her release from the hospital, although she had lost part of who she once was. No more was the bold, lighthearted face that was once seen around her office; she constantly seemed worried and startled by the smallest things.
  • Her work up until her accident had been to develop a Neuroconnective Network, allowing soldiers to instantly communicate, think, and act together in the heat of battle. And now, she had the time to complete it. She could tap into the minds of others, and what she found in those around her was the first solace she had felt in months.

With a desire to help both herself and those on the field, Nepenthe has reenlisted with The Watch.

Thank you! The thing I was mainly worried about was that her Gold skill might have too many different aspects to it :sweat_smile:
