Ithica Ashkani

Player Name



Ithica Ashkani


Lizard Lady


Reptilian Heritage: Ithica can tap into her own genetics and pull out bits a bobs from the different creatures she's related to. Each genetic rewrite overs does the last, and costs an Action Point and lasts two rounds, with the exception of Komodo Dragon which costs 2 AP and lasts only one round.

  • Chameleon: She mutes and dulls her skin, shifting the pigmentation to match her surroundings better. +2 to Subterfuge (Fieldcraft).
  • Alligator: Her skin hardens and becomes rough, and very difficult to pierce. When tapping into this heritage, her tail also becomes a very strong melee weapon. +1 to Physical Defense and Melee.
  • Komodo Dragon: An extremely difficult bit of genetics to bring to the forefront, her Dragon heritage makes her a strong, vicious fighter. Her teeth become razor sharp, and her mouth becomes a breeding ground for all sorts of bacteria. +2 to Melee, in addition, if Ithica lands a bite, the target is poisoned, rolling Physical Defense once a turn, DC 3. Failure results in a -1 to Defense for that round. A bite that incapacitates will kill in one round unless anti-venom is administered.


Alien: Physically, Ithica looks like a humanoid version of the Yucatan Banded gecko. She might make people a little weirded out.
Cold Blooded: Ithica is reptilian by every stretch of the imagination. This means she's has to regulate her own body heat. If she gets too cold, she'll go into hibernation. However, thermal scans generally don't pick her up.
Gecko, not Geico: At rest, Ithica is very close to a gecko, and sometimes she can use that to her advantage while climbing surfaces. Though, her tail has the habit of dropping off a little too easily when it gets caught.

Personal History

Mr. and Mrs. Ashkani found an odd egg in their home when they first immigrated to America. Assuming it was a decoration left by the previous tenants, the Ashkani's kept it. Soon, Mrs. Ashkani was with child, and nine months later, Ithica was born. Because of her odd appearance, she was home schooled. Any time she interacted with the outside world, she had to wear a burqa, and make-up around her eyes.
She had very little interaction with other children, being tagged as "that weird paki." Her parents began to have trouble with her as a teen, and trying to seek help, finding the Serpent's Hand. The Hand helped by giving Ithica a place she could go and be herself, without worrying about her appearance. They also helped her tap into her unknown abilities and she eventually joined the Serpent's Fist.


Ithica, for all intents and purposes, is a humanoid lizard. Her skin at rest is rubbery, and slightly bumpy, and her eyes resemble that of a gecko. She has no nose, but instead two slit like nostrils. Her tail is long, and flexible, but has no real strength. As a reptile, she has no breasts.
She is still a practicing Muslim, although she's ditched the burqa, wearing simple, modest shalwar kameez, a hijab and occasionally a niqab as her casual attire. Her battle garb changes drastically with the combat situation.
