Marionette (Villains & Vigilantes RPG)

Villains & Vigilantes is an early (1979) pen-and-paper super-hero super-hero role playing game. We have a fairly large selection of characters from that game, with DCH stats.

They’re here in no small part due to nostalgia. But they also are interesting stock characters in that they can be easily inserted into stories, conveniently filling their niche.

Powers and Abilities

Marionette is under a foot tall and still possesses her full size strength. She also possesses hypnotic Mind Control powers. She generally hides, and hitches a ride on her victims. If angered or pressed she falls back on her eastern martial arts training.


Marion was born a mutant with shape-shifting powers. Due to her inferiority complex these powers manifested themselves by slowly reducing her size at puberty. By learning such meditative techniques such as yoga while in the East, she has managed to arrest her shrinking away into nothingness. During her stay in the East she picked up her mesmerizing powers.


See illustrations.


Marionette overcompensates for her diminutive stature and inferiority complex by being aggressive.
