Dex' (Dexter or Dextra depending on form) Schaffner
Typically presents on the effeminate side of androgynous, usually goes with neutral or female pronouns.
American European Mutt
- Dex's preferred appearance is a lithe 6' even with a genuinely androgynous figure, short orange-pink hair, green eyes and pale skin. When presenting male, Dexter shifts his hair to an orange-brown. When presenting female, Dextra shifts her hair to more pure shade of pink. Dex' typically wears a white button-up shirt, black vest, blue "jeans" and something akin to a pair of knee-high converse. (good footwear is hard to transmute)
- When as a cat Dex has cream gray fur with tabby patterning and yellow eyes.
- The Predator form is highly efficient canine/feline hybrid plus a few extra bits. About the size of a wolf, the coloration is an ultra dark blue and gray with tiger-like patterning.
- Dex's dress uniform is a form-fitting black jumpsuit with gold detailing. Dex' has a number of small variations each one tailored for different kinds of weather. Their physical self under the uniform is a more muscular variant of their standard form.
- Dex's combat form is purpose 'grown' for the role. A powerfully built male figure, covered in armadillo-like armor, tough leathery skin, enhanced senses, retractable claws, the whole nine yards. The more specialized variants feature things like added fat for insulation or webbed fins for improved swimming.
Dex' is almost excessively friendly with a preference for small tight-nit social groups. A bit of a tease and a prankster, Dex' has a taste for casual mischief. On the flip side, Dex' is surprisingly grounded and serious when on missions as they've seen and experienced enough to know that hero work is serious business and anything but fun and games. (more detail to be developed as they're written)
Currently, her parents, but that's it.
Dex' is passionate about food, music and dance and has above average skill in these areas. In order to make better use of their power, Dex' has fairly extensive knowledge of biology, anatomy and to a lesser degree chemistry. Dex' also offers cosmetic transmutations to anyone interested. (tattoos, hair dyeing, etc)
Dex' is a jack of all trades able to engage foes at a distance with her stun rifle or up close and personal with her combat body. Dex' is trained in Krav Maga.
As a well rounded fighter, Dex's biggest strength is their durability. Their armor allows them to wade through attacks that would otherwise incapacitate or kill others. The above average physique of Dex's combat form gives them the mobility of an unarmored person and while their physique is mildly "enhanced" it's nowhere near being super-human.
As a jack of all trades, Dex' lacks the advantage of a clear cut specialization. While their armor is tough, it's still vulnerable to explosives or high-caliber weapons. Their enhanced senses are also more vulnerable to flashbangs and the like.

- Organic Transmutation:
Dex' can transmute organic materials, herself included.
- Given enough time, Dex' can even regrow lost limbs. (not usable in combat) That said it can be used to 'heal' minor injuries.
- Dex' can increase or decrease the relative size of whatever they're transmuting by 3-fold.
- Requires physical contact to work.
- Dex' can't transmute another sentient being without their consent.
- The transmutation is a quick process, (a few seconds to minute) but only if they've created the form before hand. Crafting a new form is time consuming and takes exponentially longer the larger or more complex the form is. Simple objects can be done in a few minutes, but living transmutations that are more than cosmetic can take hours or even days to work out.
- While Dex' can 'absorb' and store inanimate organics, (typically for clothes) it's mass/material can't be directly used to heal themselves.
It's ALL cosmetic.

Roughly speaking, Dex's combat form is a blend of these two. The layering of the 1st one and the organic curves of the second one, sans all the spiky bits. Basically, it's a 'grown' suit of medieval full plate armor. And coloration is whatever Dex' needs it to be.
