Crinos: Little setting clarification. So basically, we came together to battle a Big Evil, and then agreed to go Sentinels afterwards, for how long?
Impeach the peach!

--------------------------------------

----------Background---------

That something crashed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 is well known, but most are unaware it was a Grue scout ship.
One or more Grue survived the crash, assuming other forms to hide on Earth, becoming rogues. One such Rogue was Jackson's father who has been on Earth for decades, leading the life of an ordinary human.
Recently Jackson discovered his powers and and is still trying to come to grips with the true nature of his heritage. He currently is going to Emerald City University on a scholarship and moonlights as a "costumed" crimefighter. He would love to sit down with Pseudo of the Freedom League sometime to talk about his heritage if the damned alien would ever come down from the Lighthouse.

The Sentinels are not involved, you just decided to stay together as a team.

Like the original Avengers.

Omni

Abilities: STR 14 (+2); DEX 10 (+0); CON 14 (+2); INT 14 (+2); WIS 10 (+0); CHA 14 (+2)

Skills:
Bluff 6 (+8)
Computers 6 (+8)
Diplomacy 2 (+4)
Disguise 4 (+6, +41 with Shapeshift)
Knowledge (pop culture) 10 (+12)
Language 2 (Grue, English; Lor is native)
Search 4 (+6)
Sense Motive 2 (+2)
Stealth 4 (+4)

Feats: Fascinate (Bluff), Favored Opponent (Grue), Power Attack, Taunt

Powers: Shapeshift 7 (Limited [machine powers and humanoid Morph only] (-1/rank))
Immunity 11 (aging, disease, poison, need for sleep, starvation and thirst, total suffocation, vacuum, high pressure, environmental radiation, environmental heat and cold [half effect])

Combat: Attack +10, Grapple +10
Defense 20, flat-footed 15
Initiative +0

Saves: Toughness +2
Fortitude +4
Reflex +6
Will +6

Abilities 16 + Skills 10 + Feats 4 + Powers 60 + Combat 40 + Saves 16 = 146

Note to GM: I realize I have 4 points still to spend, but half the reason I submitted the build this was is I wasn't sure if you'd approve the limitation on Shapeshift. Even if you do having the character start out with a few points unspent sort of goes with the "teenager" concept.

Rest of the stuff will come soon. Just wanted to tag in.

EDIT: Background: AI is a Crapshoot. Fortunately for the Lor designers of this anti-Grue -- the Omega N-1, OmN1 -- the roll happened to be "teenager".

Okay, maybe that's still bad.

Standard story from there: robot/teen decides it doesn't want to be controlled, runs away pursued by government agents determined to get her back, and ends up on Earths at a convenient location where she can run into some good-guys.

Fortunately the Lor are okay guys, so after the inevitable battle they were persuaded that she should do the hero thing and go to Claremont to give her time to "grow out of it".

That.........didn't happen.

Now that someone has foolishly graduated her Omni has tried to “leave it all behind”, getting as far away as she thinks she needs to be from her “old life”. That means a place away from the usual superhero stuff, and Emerald City sounds about right. [@Crinos: Let me know if this last part is consistent with the setting.]

Personality: Teenager. So it’s stereotypical, but it’s a young AI with difficult-to-control urges and swings in personality, what else do you call it? Hopefully she just needs more time to "experiment", which is exactly what she’s doing while trying to “find herself”.

Complications:
Robot — Duh.
Alien –—Depends on how technical bigots want to get.
Controlling Parents — The Lor want her to be protecting them from Grue.
Hunted — Obviously the Grue would like to get their hands on her.
Hormonal Teenager — Not technically hormones, but it has the same effect. What’s worse is that being a genderless machine with shapeshifting powers “romance” is a whole comedy of errors unto itself. The GM should feel free to have her develop a crush on anyone and/or change genders uncontrollably.

Something to note since it looks like the character is trying to maintain a secret identity, with those as alternate powers, using them would leave you in your normal form if I'm reading that right.

Edit: *Looks at Silver's build.*

...

This is gonna be like having guy with electrical powers and guy with vulnrability to electricity again, isn't it?

In this case his "normal" form is the Grue looking one mechanically. So yes when he uses his powers like density and insubstantial he looks like a Grue. But with Metamorph he can eat and sleep as a Human. At least that is how I understand it.

I suppose I could've put the whole thing in a "Alternate Form: Grue" Container.

She's not a Grue-hunter!

Well, okay, she's supposed to be. But she's not following orders!

The potential is so worth it.

Also updated stat post with background, personality, and Complications.

I apologize if you took that as an insult. Hell, if the campaign is modeled on the Avengers, potential inter character issues only makes it *closer.* :)

Please don't withdraw Hero4Hire, I like your concept.

Also, Silvercat your set up is fine. I use the same power build for XJ9 from My Life as a Teenage Robot.
