Character picture for my character in my gaming group’s Shadows Angelus IV game.
Tyche has the ability to manipulate and alter fate and twist probability how she sees fit. For a time, this served her well, until she started angering a fair number of people and supernatural beings due to her abusing her talents. In response to this, she joined XSWAT both as a means of protecting herself (most of the people and things that are hunting her would have to be stupid, suicidal and/or insane to go anywhere near XSWAT) as well as paying off her “karmic debt” (using her powers for the betterment of others rather than just herself).
As an officer, Tyche is only marginally competent simply because her work-ethic stinks; this is the first real job that she’s ever had and she doesn’t need money. She knows the rules and regulations; she just doesn’t care to follow them (if she can help it) and she hates paperwork. Despite these minor failings, she will do the right thing. In the field, Tyche does not appear to exhibit any powers or abilities that can be observed or measured (unlike magic users or espers whose powers or their effects are always observable in some fashion). This being said; it has been noted that any squad or unit that Tyche has been assigned to seems to both perform better than expected as well as requiring noticeably fewer resources to operate on a day-to-day basis.
Out of the office, Tyche is still learning to live a more subdued lifestyle. While she still has no real want for money, she also cannot maintain the affluent and frivolous lifestyle she had before. This means that she can no longer throw the lavish and expensive parties that would make Tony Stark jealous. The result of this new-found frugality (relatively speaking) has caused a lot of people she thought were friends to abandon her. Fortunately, the squad she has been assigned to has worked out very well so far for her in this regard.
From a metagame perspective, Tyche draws a LOT of inspiration from several characters from Homestuck…of which the GM and other players may or may not be aware…
