Powers and Abilities

Ushas is an excellent nunchaku wielder and a good martial artist.

She wields a pair of glowing nunchaku. When she makes her whirling weapons collide with each other, they can release a magical explosion. While it doesn’t affect her, it can send her opponents flying. With her utmost effort, Ushas used this attack to repel a crashing 30-ton statue. However, that left her exhausted.


Ushas is an attractive Nepalese woman with unusually fair skin. She has a small tattoo of a kriss dagger on her forehead.


Haughty priestess assuming that everything she does is divinely inspired and thoroughly justified. She seems more warlike than her sister.


“We would kill a thousand infidels to regain the Sacred Volume of Kâli !”

The sun blast is treated as per standard rulesbook advice for things that look like a Close Move Object Effect. Ushas had to use Extra Effort to have enough Ranks to blast back the falling statue.
