Background

Face (Strong Role)

What lead to this being your main skill set?

I manipulate everyone to get what I want, becoming whatever I want to get my ends met.  And those ends are not usually friendly.

Did you plan to be good at this, or did you plan for something else and life took a different turn?

I was expecting to become an affluent bum, playing with my life until I was forced to make something of it.  I had not real ambitions or goals until my parents were kidnapped.

What one or two key events in your life featured this Role (whether you were good at it then or needed to be but wasn’t)?

Getting out of the mansion, getting past the teacher's and guards watchful gaze.

Getting Weller to believe I cared about her mission, rather than mine.

Willpower (Strong Attribute)

What lead to this being important to you?

I was always being pushed into things I didn't want to do, so I worked out ways to get out of the ones I really opposed.

Were you always this good, or did you have to work for it?

I have always been able to get people to do what I want and to make sure folks could not push me into a mental corner.

What one or two key events in your life featured this Attribute (whether you were good at it then or needed to be but wasn’t)?

getting away from the guards, getting out of school work

Strength (Weak Attribute)

Was this always a weakness, or did something happen in the past to make it a weakness?

I have always been physically weaker, and changing appearance really doesn't help.  

What situation seems to come up where this gets in the way?

If I actually want to push someone out of my way, I really don't have the muscle to pull it off.  I am always bluffing when I do large forms and try intimidate.

Mutant (Distinction)

When did this Distinction become a part of your life?

Late adolescence. 

How has it come to help you out, salvage an operation going bad, or even save your life?

Being able to change my looks to mimic the outward appearance of anyone I would like, has allowed me to get into any place I wanted, as well as gather intelligence or get past surveillance. 

How has it complicated your life?

I don't really know who I am.  I have no real friends except the family lawyer who keeps my money and my identity a secret to the general public.  Several agencies know who I am now, and that has made it difficult to move about without them finding me, unless I want to give up my money and my only real tie to who I was before I became Shift.

One Step Ahead (Distinction)

When did this Distinction become a part of your life?

When I started out on my own from the mansion.

How has it come to help you out, salvage an operation going bad, or even save your life?

Most of the time, it is what I rely on.  I am always thinking about how to move the situation forward to the ends I need, but I really am not looking at the big picture as much as the next thing I want.  

How has it complicated your life?

I am forced to improvise alot, as I get myself into situations I have not completely through through.
