Bob the Imaginary Friend

Player Name

Salmander

Name

Bob

Concept

A product of a child's imagination left over from their untimely death

Power

Totally Mental: The powers of an imaginary friend are many and varied, but mainly minute. However, at the cost of an action point Bob may roll his imaginatory powers to fade away from an attack, transform into a solid object, or summon some item to his possession.

Aspects

Picasso: Bob's face, body, and limbs all change their colour and shape independently from one another, from a face of red and black crayon to the hand of a gorilla. It moves from colour to colour and shape to shape like a flipbook, a gradual but jerky transformation that continues on forever. When a person focuses on a certain part of Bob it stops changing for that moment.
Bob the Blob: When necessary, Bob can change into a needed object. This can be anything from a brick wall to a tea kettle. Note, however, that this state is still just Bob. Crashing through a Bob wall would be as easy as crashing through Bob (which is not very hard at all). Also note that unless he points in a lot of nose-to-the-grindstone, action-pointy effort, Bob will retain his original colours - whatever they were at the time, when he transforms.
Child Care: Bob is very protective of children. Note that in this case children does not mean a younger person, but rather anybody he perceives as immature or naive.

Personal History

Bob was originally dreamed up by a young Joey Brooney in Perth, Australia, while he was in the hospital. Bob was Joey's only friend for much of his stay there, being a personification of everything Joey couldn't be. A sword fighter, a knife thrower, an astronaut, a cowboy, a magician, a wizard. Joey died from a malignant brain tumor in 2008. Nobody's sure how Bob still remained, but he did, and he continued to move from child to child, introducing himself to them and playing with them until he was sure they were fine. Then the apocalypse happened, and bob found himself without any children with which to play. He began wandering the world's oceans, walking across them as the world's loneliest (imaginary) man.
