Full Name: Vasuki
Gift: Vasuki has the ability to mix and match the physical characteristics of any snake species and incorporate them
into his body, basically being a shapeshifter with a heavy emphasis on snakes. He can grow fangs, scales, and contort or
elongate his body to rediculous degrees. He gains all the unique and powerful senses any snake would possess, such as
heightened hearing, smelling and tasting simultaneously with his tongue, his sixth sense tempreture sensor, and an
impressive tactile information system, not counting all the weaponry and survival tools he can extract from the snake gene
pool at any given moment. His snake forms grant him an inhuman amount of strength, allowing him to crush bones with ease.
It is thanks to his ability to morph and adapt that has given him an edge above the rest when it comes to surviving the
harsh and brutal wastes.
Vasuki can go days without eating and still retain energy thanks to his high metabolism and long term water and
energy storage thanks to his python genes. Snakes also possess a very strong immune system, making them resistant to most
forms of bacteria, diseases and poisons. Vasuki rarely gets sick because of this, though resistance is not total immunity
and he still risks dangerous bacterial infections from open and untended wounds. In addition, he also has a complete
immunity to even the deadliest of snake venoms.
Loyalty: Himself, Wanderer
Description: Vasuki has short, dirty blonde hair and somewhat pale skin which makes him blend eerily well with the
deserts that mar the wastelands. He wears robes and full body clothing best acclimated to whatever weather he expected to
be in. His build is lean yet muscular with scars dotted across his body, evidence of personal struggles to wrestle and
hunt beasts. The greatest concentration of scars line his arms, though the majority of which comes from snake bites from
attempting to handle such aggressive predators. His default eye color is a bright yellow, which matches nicely with his
hair, though thanks to his gene manipulation, he can turn them any color he desires. Regardless of what forms his eyes
take, he always at least somewhat resemble snake eyes, thus Vasuki often wears sunglass or goggles to blend in. In human
form he is 6'6, though when fully transformed into snake form he can reach up to 20ft in length.
Personality: Vasuki is very greedy and avaricious, coveting money, knowledge and power and being very stingy and reluctant
to share anything he can get his hands on. That being said, he is not overtly malicious and while prideful, is not above
listening to reason and learning from his mistakes. He is slow to trust and very self-centered, though he has a strong
since of debt to any who show kindness and respect to him. He is very intelligent and a bit of a social recluse, and while
he does loathe to admit it, he is very protective and loving of his friends, even if he has a very weird and somewhat
clingy way of showing it.
Skills: Vasuki is very intelligent and learned to read from an early age. He learned to survey the lay of the land to the
point where he can start making maps and is a very experienced survivalist. He has become adept at starting fires, cooking
meals, hunting, tracking, and finding water due to his expanded senses and strong sense of self-reliance as opposed to
trusting others with his survival. His knowledge of snakes is vast and he often uses this information to his advantage
when bio-morphing his body to match the situation. He has a lot of knowledge concerning poisons, especially snake venoms.
He is trained in using various firearms, usually using hunting rifles for bringing down his food, though admittedly he
isn't the best shot. Vasuki is most comfortable using and most proficient at being a quickdraw with his trusty heavy
revolvers. He is yet to find a gunslinger quicker than him on the draw thanks to his lightning-fast reflexes. When in
close combat, he uses a bowie knife often coated in his own venom. Most bullets he loads into the chambers of his guns he
also coats in deadly venom so that even if he doesn't hit his mark, his target is still going down. Vasuki is very
perceptive when it comes to identifying counterfeit money or false replicas. He is very good at hiding his presence,
camaflouging seamlessly into his environment and his slithering makes very little noise, allowing him to sneak up on most
targets without being detected.
Weaknesses: While Vasuki is skilled at hunting wild animals, he has very little combat experience fighting people,
preferring to negotiate or weasel his way out of conflicts if possible.
He is very adept at surviving hot and arid regions, but due to being cold-blooded is much more suspitible to freezing and
frostbite in cold weather.
While he is very fast and strong, he is very reliant on the element of surprise and catching his opponents off-guard to
inflict any lasting damage.
His scales mainly protect his body from environmental hazards and serve as insulation and locomotion, and provide little
protection from force and pressure, thus lacking in defensive options.
While he knows how to use guns, he is not very accurate with them and relies on close range weaponry, putting him at a severe
disadvantage against longer ranged opponents.
Stealth is a tremendous assest to Vasuki. Robing him of this asset greatly limits his options.
While resistant, he is not immune to biological weaponry.
His greed and pride can get the better of him
Brief History: Not much is known about Vasuki, save that he is a merchant and a very dedicated cartographer whose maps are
highly treasured by caravaners and other wanderers. Vasuki's craft usually earns him just enough merit and respect for
others to overlook his more greedy and eccentric nature.
Other: Vasuki has an adorable pet Ball Python named Arcamedis.
Vasuki is bisexual, with a stronger leaning towards women.
