Natalia Koutolika

The Prodigy

You’re incredibly talented — a once-in-a-generation prodigy near the peak of human mental and physical potential. In particular you have access to a legendary strength of spirit: what some martial artists call "overflowing Chi" or "Ki" and some other PCs call "the wishing power of the heart."

In your day-to-day life you’re just an extremely competent teenaged girl. When you push yourself to excel you’ll rival pulp science adventurers, cinematic kung fu heroes, and even supernatural or divine warriors out of legend.
