Name

Tank

Concept

Avian Mimicry Master

Power

Birdly Might: Tank has been given the deepest secrets of the birds by Birdman, the living legend that came to him in his greatest hour of need. He has the ability to pay one AP to transform into other forms, taking on new skills and aspects in each. Tank attempts to make a target for each of his forms, transforming into that target if he makes the goal. Failure to make his goal will transform him into a lesser form that the goal meets for the cost of one additional AP. Critical failure will turn him into an egg for the remainder of the scene. Critical success… well… That's an entirely different matter. These changes last for the duration of the scene, with another expended AP extending the duration by one additional scene.

Aspects

He's a Frickin' Bird: He's a bird. None of the daemon crap Midnight pulled, or 'human in a bird's body' trash. He's a bird, with birdly thoughts, birdly concerns, and birdly secrets. Lots and lots of birdly secrets. He flies, eats bugs, scraws, and seems only mildly interested in the affairs of man, or as he calls them, "those big things that are loud and shot me."
Fragile: As a bird, he suffers from a few weakness, regardless of current bird form. Primarily, hollow bones and a low weight. Impacts send him flying and scrawing all over the place, so long as they are sufficiently large.
Transfigured: Tank's power changes his form greatly, which also changes many things about his nature. This aspect changes with his forms:

Personal History

Tank was just an ordinary bird until one day, after an unfortunate defecation accident, Myrtle Rivers took careful aim and put a bullet through his frail body. As he scrawed in pain, his short life flashed before his eyes. His mother and father raising him. He and his brother and sisters all cavorting in the nest, and the inevitable day when he had to fly or die. As he careened to the ground, blood and feathers trailing behind him, he lost consciousness, and he knew that he would wake up in bosom of the Lord of Avians, taking some comfort in the knowledge that he had, at the very least, had a good six months of life.

He awoke in a box, his wing pulled to his side, terrified at the circumstances in which he found himself. Before long, a young human, one who called himself Finn and his other self Enkal, took him out and took care of him, feeding him crickets. He slowly grew to know the other members of the convoy: Gun McShootyface, Nice McLadyfood, Snaky McSnakebutt, Weird McSquinty, Oddball McHehal, Gunly Murderwoman, and Troy, who Finn introduced him to properly, avoiding the awkward conversation that was doubtless brewing there when he would have eventually been called Jewhair McGlaresalot.

Tank had a mellow, if extremely depressing life for a few days, hobbling about the camp on one wing, unable to fly. Until he met… Birdman.

This living and breathing legend, master of all that took to the sky, held the young Sand Martin and whispered to him secrets. The secrets of all the kings and queens of the bird kingdom, telling him that he would be important one day, necessary for all the things that were going to take place. That Tank, the young, weak bird, would one day fly again, and his voice would call in the roar of fire and thunder and wind.

For one day… Tank would save them all.

Miscellaneous

Tank's real name is a super big secret.
