Species - Sil in alien form 2/2

Sil


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

Species was a 1995 sci-fi/horror movie, about a Giger -designed killer alien infiltrator with boobies. Though low-brow and poorly reviewed, the movie had enough commercial success to spawn a sequel, and about two direct-to-video sequels after the theatre one.

This profile only covers the creature in the original Species movie, though.


Powers and Abilities

The dual nature of the Sil makes her mighty even in her “human” body . She is strong, resilient to damage and regenerative.

But her most impressive feature is her learning capacity. Skills seen in action are easily incorporated into her repertoire.

Background

Sil was the daughter of two worlds, the inheritance of an alien race who sent their genetic code to the Earth. Human scientists made an hybrid with it, and she was called… Sil.

Sil grew at a superfast rating, and in half a week she reached maturity. Sil’s objective was mating with a human being. When she accomplished that objective, transforming into her alien shape, she ran away to protect her fast-grown sons, that evolved from embryo to the birth in a few hours.

The problem was going to be to stop Sil in her search for procreation… even to the special force the government sent to kill her.

Description

In her human form, Sil seems a beautiful young woman around 23-26 years old, with long fair hair and green eyes.

Her alien form is quite different. Just imagine any of Giger’s creatures, give it a human resemblance… and you’ll have Sil.


Personality

Human-Sil wants to procreate with a human mate, but it must be a good human specimen. If she must kill while she’s at it, better.

Alien-Sil wants to protect her spawn.


DC Universe History

Aliens, predators, invasions,… The DC universe is so full of extraterrestrial conflicts, killers and hunters that Sil won’t give a single problem to enter our universe. It’s better to use it with low number/low powered heroes, the better if they have not seen the movie (any of the three).
