Overzealous Beacon of Tomorrow
Back to Exalted
 Basic Character Information
Name: Overzealous Beacon of Tomorrow (Aliases: None)
Concept: Fun-loving sexy warrior of love~
Motivation: Smash the blight around Nurad back into remission!
Appearance: The first impression people get of Beacon is that of largeness - at six feet eight and two hundred and sixty pounds, she's one of the largest Champions in Nurad without any Manifold Transhuman Implants to increase her size. Golden skin, with a slight reddish tint to it, further ensures that she stands out in any crowd - as does her long white hair, bound back into a ponytail to keep it out of the way, and her generous, muscular figure. She has vivid, bright green eyes, a smooth, small nose, and her mouth is near-perpetually in a broad grin. Most prominent in her standard wardrobe is a faded black, well-worn synthetic leather buff jacket with sleeves removed to accomodate her usual Charm selection, and two horizontal golden-yellow stripes across the middle of her back where the orichalcum underplating peeks through. She usually wears it unbuttoned, over a slightly dirty white tube top, a pair of dirty and faded brown workpants (with an abundance of pockets), and a pair of synthetic leather boots that match her buff jacket (read: faded black, well-worn). Her Charms are usually rather highly decorated, with intricate carvings, shining green lights, and the occasional exposed power link with lightning crackling through it.
Anima Appearance: The sharp smell of ozone fills the air. A coil of light twists around Beacon, with a thousand tiny sparks of brilliant light winding their way up, bolts of lightning flying off them to harmlessly impact anything nearby. Anything so struck glows brightly for several seconds afterward.
Backstory: A master general, who invented Autochthonian warfare... A doctor who took great strides to improve public health... a scout with a knack for sniffing out valuble resource taps... a craftsman who dedicated his life to building better tools... a highly-skilled politician and manager, who wasn't discovered as being of the Populat until after his demise... these lives and more combined to create the personality of the Orichalcum-caste Overzealous Beacon of Tomorrow. One of Nurad's youngest Alchemicals at the moment, she's quickly established a reputation for herself as being friendly and easy to approach, with a fondness for flashiness in her near-constant Gremlin-hunting and a fondness for... romance... on her off shifts.

Artifact ●● - Beacon possesses a... well-worn synthetic leather reinforced buff jacket, appropriated from a Regulator that happened to be nearby when she was Exalted. In addition to the numerous patches and mends, it has received further reinforcement in the form of orichalcum chain links sandwiched between the layers of leather. She also has a magnetic metrocore attuned to the metropolis of Enrex, set in a pair of orichalcum core "bracers" (that are actually worn on the upper arm). (Four dots unspent because I suck at backgrounds ;~;)
Charms ●●● - This merely serves as a reminder that three of her Background dots are instead being spent on Charms.
Class ●●●●● - The standard of living for Alchemicals, or at least those Alchemicals who haven't completely screwed something up yet. What is slightly less standard (though far from unheard of) is that Beacon's entire personal staff consists of an extremely short, somewhat irritable Charm technician named Oli. In addition, she's got a loyal pet rat, named Citizen Whiskers, who she saved from the Reaches on the whim of a past life's memory.. Unknown to everyone save for Beacon and Uria, Citizen Whiskers is a genetically-engineered rat, possessed of an extreme degree of intelligence.
Eidolon ●●●●● - Every night, a hundred epic sagas from years long since past dance through Beacon's dreams. She's thinking about going into play-writing...
Familiar - Beacon may well be the only Alchemical to possess a pet rat, one of her few luxuries. Citizen Whiskers spends most of his time in a cage in the Orichalcum-caste's private quarters, and the rest in her arms as she lavishes affection upon him. The cage is on a desk, and can be quickly tucked into a drawer in case of visitors; his existence isn't a secret, but Beacon feels that it would be best not to remind anyone that she happens to be giving some of her own food to a... well, a rat in a time when Nurad is facing starvation. (It does help that most of the wild rats have long since departed for conduits where the nutrient paste still flows.)
Mentor ●● - Infinitely Elegant Weapon is an Orichalcum-caste gremlin hunter of considerable experience, who Beacon works with from time to time. Beacon looks up to the older Exalt, and is quite willing to help out when Weapon has a task that needs to be done but that she can't attend to personally for some reason. Weapon's thoughts on her younger companion are... mixed, varying from amusement at having a sidekick to annoyance at having such a perky sidekick, depending on how she's feeling that day.

The synthetic leather reinforced buff jacket benefits from the Orichalcum magical material bonus. (Soak 9L/12B, Hardness 6L/6B, Mobility -0, Fatigue 1, Attune 3)
Her magnetic metrocore will lead her to the nearest Alchemical city, and serves as an entry key to the gates of the metropolis of Enrex.
Her orichalcum core bracers increase her dodge DV calculation pool by 3 before dividing it, and increase the damage of all her attacks by two dice, in addition to having a single slot for an elemental core (or hearthstone).
