Boiling Point Preview: Teeth-Always-Shown, Commander of the Invasion

teeth-webIn this preview, we look at the other leader of the alien invasion force, a powerful warrior named Teeth-Always-Shown. If you want to read more about him, please back our Kickstarter.

Description:  A commander in the Selachius equivalent of the military, Teeth-Always-Shown is a survivor of the previous assault on Earth and still carries the facial burn scars from that battle. The burns removed much of the flesh on the left side of his face, leaving his many rows of teeth exposed and prompting his new name. When the rift began to allow passage once more, he convinced the Council of Spirits to allow him to attempt another invasion of Earth. They only allowed a small expedition until Teeth-Always-Shown could provide evidence that prey and not predators would be found. Teeth has been slowly taking control of the trench and the base. While he is personally convinced Hot Water and other heroes are no more he must provide proof to the council, which is why he is searching for information on Ragnorak. The commander wears an enhanced version of Apex Warrior armor that is adorned on the shoulders by glowing anemones and decorative corals.

Conviction [Major]: All battles are frenzies

Description: In combat Teeth-Always-Shown uses the oldest of combat styles among the Selachius: blind frenzy. He becomes a blur, moving from one enemy to another faster than the eye can follow. He fills the air around him with cuts from his blade and snaps from his jaws, leaving no safe place to stand. The Selachius ancient art of electrical communication becomes a weapon in his hands as he no longer needs a lightning gun to augment his power and can throw electrical bolts on his own. Such is his reverence for this ancient art that he can hardly tell friend from foe while within its haze.

Elite Commander of the Selachius: 15 points

Power Tier: Superhuman

Complication [Major]: Prove myself to the council

Description: Commanding an invasion force, even a small one, requires management skills. Teeth-Always-Shown has had years to plot his revenge upon the Earth and to hone his leadership skills. Now he is eager to begin but before he can be given greater command he must prove his worth to the Council of Spirits. He faces considerable scrutiny and must tread carefully.
