  • Combat chainsaw [BODY 06, EV 06, R#03, Misc.: can be used to Block as a small shield (no penalties)].
  • Ultravoice [BODY 03 Super Ventriloquist: 01, R#03]. An important tool for communicating since she is mute.
  • She also has a 6AP Lab only usable to dispose of bodies and torture people.
  • Generic concealed melee weapons [BODY 03, EV 02, R#03]. Assume that she has an infinite number of these to be used as backup weapons should her chainsaw fail. She would most likely use scalpels and other medical tools appropriate for torture.

Powers and Abilities

Sawyer operates a sort of one-metre long industrial chainsaw, which can cut through most obstacles she's likely to encounter - including walls and thin metal objects. Though she doesn’t pack, she’s swift enough and her chainsaw’s blade is large enough to actually block bullets.


Sawyer works in Roanapur as a mob cleaner, disposing of corpses to deny clues to rivals and the police. Occasionally, the bodies to be disposed off are still alive. Sawyer’s employed include Mr. Chan. Her throat was slit in unrevealed circumstances - though she somehow survived, she lost use of her vocal chords.

She works near a meatpacking plant.


The diminutive Sawyer works in full scrubs plus surgical googles and face mask, given her chainsaw-based methods. Otherwise she’ll dress in dark, goth-style clothing. Sawyer must employ a small device turning vibration into sound and apply it on her throat in order to talk.


An apparently unfeeling killer and butcher, possibly crazy. If deprived of her voice simulator she goes into shock.

DC Universe History

She could be inserted in any lower level street campaign with underworld ties. Anytime organized crime needs to dispose of a body they know who to call…

Marvel Universe History

Same as the DCU. She might be a good one-time villain against the Punisher or Daredevil or any other street level hero.
