Yahi Chaine

Player: Cocoa

Position: Smart Antarctic Newbie

Demeanor: Yahi is what her grandmother would have described as "a pot of spiced honey." Naturally prone to sweetness and making things better, but will burn you and kick you in the throat if handled incautiously.

Nature: Yahi likes to play up and project what maturity, wisdom, and gentleness she has. Truth is though, she's rather excitable and even a bit short-tempered. She's also full of personal ambitions, has a knack for politics, and can get a rather inflated sense of herself if things go well for her for long enough. At the root though, she tries to see the best in people and gets along with others as best she can. ENTJ.

Description: Yahi has a pear build and very dark bronze skin and dark hair. She is fit, but not super athletic, with a pear-shaped/triangle build. She tends to wear loose, comfortable clothing. Stands about 5'5". Her exact ethnicity and light accent are probably hard for most people to pin down.

You have eight points to distribute among as many or as few specialty skills as you see fit (but at least three is almost always warranted). Remember to explain what each specialty entails.

  • It's Not Exactly Rocket Surgery: 2. Yahi is trained in advanced first aid techniques (pooooosibly boosted by a minor blessing). When Yahi rolls a 1 or a 2 on a healing die, the healing is done but the die is not expended from her pool.
  • Actually it is Rocket Surgery: 3. Yahi's training with the IIPES covered a wide variety of fields, only some of which overlap with the knowledge we have on baseline. Yahi has a +3 to Education rolls regarding esoteric knowledge in the fields of thaumaturgy and anomalous biological engineering, as well as rolls to resist backlash or any hazardous side-effects of thaumaturgical or anomalous biological engineering undertakings that she is an active participant in.
  • Sand and Snow: 1. Growing up in the great Antarctic desert means that Yahi is less affected by extreme temperature shifts than others might be. +1 Resilience against extreme hot or cold.
  • Honey and Spice: 2. Yahi practically grew up in the imperial court, with her father and mother being an upper-middling bureaucrat and the daughter of a wealthy noble respectively. As such, she's become quite adept at twisting political situations to her favor. Some posturing here, a little swagger there, and maybe a few strategic fears scattered in the right spots. Yahi has a pool of 6 fudge dice per run or event. After making a Charm roll, Yahi can then roll any number of remaining dice she has in this pool. She then counts the dice that came up positive and adds that number to her roll.


  • Fancy clothes (bought on the Foundation's diplomatic budget, of course)
  • Any requisite papers or identification she requires to maintain her cover.


  • Yellow paper shades that she uses to color the light in her room.
  • A big colorful quilt for her bed.
  • A box of chewing lichen.

Personal History:

Yahi was born about 25 years ago in the Third Antarctic Empire. At an early age, her family connections and studious habits led to her being shipped off to the Imperial Institute. Though spirited, Yahi was ill-adjusted to the competitive nature of the school and internal politics among the students. To survive, she reinvented herself almost from the ground up, putting her determined and observant nature to work at becoming a mover and shaker among her peers. At the age of 16, she completed her studies and formally entered the royal court in a minor scholarly role. She served their for eight years, moving up from student council meetings and research labs to to balls and formal reports. About a year ago, Yahi was appointed an ambassador to the "northern barbarians" and subsequently assigned to Omega-5 and Site-15.


Pronunciation of her name is somewhere between "Yah-hee Shy-neigh" and "Yah-hee Chai-neigh".


Either VERITAS or Alias, still deciding.
