Epox is a shapeshifter who uses its gadget, which it grandly calls the Infinity Box, to disguise itself more effectively. Epox is normally seen in human disguise.
Name: Evez Epox
Template: Sci-Fi Hero (Alien)
Species: Ukite (alien)
Homeworld: Chirax Gamma
Gender: None, asexual species
While most Alien heroes do not have the ability to mutate [as in "develop mutant powers"] like humans do, the Ukite do possess this potential. The microorganisms that the Agedo forcibly implant into Ukite neophytes on occassion has been known to spawn a very specific set of mutation powers within Ukite adults (and Epox happens to be one of these gifted individuals). Unlike mutated humans, mutant Ukite only get four mutation powers.
The energy attack has a range of 15 meters, plus one meter per Power Score modifier. The energy does 3d6 [plus power score modifier] damage.
Its body coloration automatically matches the colors of any background that is within one meter. The effect of this is as if Epox had a 90% Hide in Shadows score. Epox's special alien toga™ changes color with it automatically when it uses this power, but any other Earthling clothing or garments it is wearing will not blend with it.
Requires a successful power score check. The effect of activating this power is to provide Epox with a +5 bonus to AC [plus power score modifier], with the bonus being halved if Epox's power score check fails. Epox can maintain its Carapace for a number of rounds equal to its power score modifier.
While in another form, Epox takes on all the physical attributes of that body - including move speed, move method, natural attacks, natural armor class and physical ability scores (if they're better than Epox's base scores).
Epox can keep its assumed form indefinitely, though it automatically reverts to its natural form if it is knocked unconscious.
The Infinity Box can store a number of permanent blueprints equal to the Metamorphosis power score modifier, with two extra temporary memory spaces allocated for additional forms.
Against disease-based attacks, Epox's strained immune system imposes a -5 penalty to save.
polymorph self - average stats for that species, and for injury and other purposes it's a new critter/new body each time.)
The stored images are of a person at a particular time and don't update if the person should cut their hair, get injured, etc, unless Epox replaces them with a new image.
One of the images is of Epox's usual human diguise.
The Agedo, air-breathers who look something like red shark-crocodiles, live on Chirax Beta. The Ukite, Epox's species, blue frilled folks with very weak shapeshifting power, live on Chirax Gamma.
The two planets orbit Chirax in the same plane and direction, but one faster than the other, with the effect that for about ten years of every fifty the planets are close enough for the Agedo to come and plunder the Ukite. The Ukite taste pretty good, you see, and other than the occasional cull and mass execution for disobedience, they mostly farm themselves. To help the process along, the Agedo implant microorganisms into Ukite children to enhance their flavour and make them even more peaceful and docile.
However... 0.5% of Ukite, rather than incubating the parasites, reabsorb them and gain special powers from them.
Of that 0.5%, about 2% manage to conceal the fact and avoid being executed.
Of that 2%, there has been one known escapee.
The Agedo were not pleased.
