135lb / 61kgHistory:
An inhabitant of the Natsija, a micro-nation ruled by the android demigod Morana, Calista was killed in an accident and revived as a servant of her Queen. She serves as maid when she isn't being experimented with. Because of her loyalty to Morana, as well as being a field test, she was sent to check out Roulette City.Personality:
Friendly and helpful, Calista practically worships Morana and serves her unconditionally. She gets shy and anxious around large crowds of strangers, and stutters when stressed. She's easily spooked but can get brave when backed into a corner or feeling confident. An earnest girl, though not super intelligent. Calista is also rather naive about the world outside the Natsija.
To Calista, Morana is both her queen and personal savior, and the girl holds a supremely positive outlook towards the science that resurrected her.Likes:
Queen Morana, the Natsija, praise, science, technology.Dislikes:
Heretics, animals, guns, strangers, monsters.Abilities:
- Biode Reactors
: Calista's power source, they directly convert matter to energy at a tightly regulated scale to generate energy. Each Reactor can theoretically last 5 years before it needs to be replaced, but they constitute her "vital organs". If she has less than 4 her movements start becoming more sluggish, and having less than 2 renders her completely immobile (if all are destroyed her brain can survive for about a 3 days independently). Special fail-safes will cause a Reactor to deactivate when severely damaged.
- Artificial Body
: Except for her metallic fingers and legs, most of her outer body is made out of a skin-like synthetic fiber that's tough but flexible. The inner parts of her body are made of durable lightweight alloys. Half her body weight is in her arms, and they are large enough that she walks like an ape. When using her arms she can reach pretty high sprinting speeds, but it leaves her exposed. She is waterproof, but her nervous system is susceptible to electric shocks. Her arm strength is immense and she can crush iron with her grip.
- Systema Rusalka
: ^Information in Image^ Based in the remains of Calista's brain, the Systema Rusalka is Morana's best attempt at giving her creations Biode abilities. Still highly experimental, a side effect is that Calista can be treated as having a living soul in a dead body for magical context. The activation parts are actually mental boosters, so if destroyed she can still use the respective power with far less control and skill.Fighting Style:
Calista uses a special form of Sambo
that is adapted to her body and stature. Good at throws, grappling and powerful hand strikes. She has nice melee reach and can stand on her hands to use her legs as blunt weapons or block.
Her energy attacks are quite inaccurate, so she struggles against ranged opponents. Weaknesses:
Long-range combat, high voltages, intense heat, magic, cooling rod Flowers are a vital weak point. Can be frightened into submission and isn't terribly clever.
