Powers

((""(Growth
Action: Free • Range: Personal • Duration: Sustained • Cost: 2 points per rank
You can temporarily increase your size, gaining Strength and Stamina at the cost of becoming a bigger, heavier, less agile target, unable to maneuver through small spaces.

Growth modifiers are restricted by power level limits.

Each rank of Growth adds 1 rank to your Strength and Stamina (constructs add 1 rank to Strength and Toughness if they lack Stamina) and adds 1 rank to your mass. Every two ranks adds a +1 bonus to Intimidation. Every 8 ranks adds 1 to your Speed. Every rank of Growth subtracts 1 from your Stealth checks. Every 2 ranks (rounded up) subtracts 1 from your Dodge and Parry defenses. Every 4 ranks of Growth increases your size rank by 1 (ordinary humans start out at size rank –2, between 3 and 6 feet tall). So at Growth 8, you have +8 Strength and Stamina, +4 to Intimidation, +1 Speed, but -8 to Stealth, –4 Dodge and Parry, and you are size rank 0 (around 30 feet tall). Increases to your Strength and Stamina also improve related traits like your Strength Damage, Fortitude, and Toughness"".)))

+Growth, Rank 8, 16 points cost

-At maximum, she will be :
Size rank 0, or thirty feet tall

Flaws! “Noticible”. -4 Flat point at usual, -8 flat point cost at full size. (Because fifteen foot women are most certainly not easy to conceal, and thirty feet women entirely more so.) 4 ranks of it are “Permanent”, -1 per rank, making her halfway to the Size rank 1.

30- 16= 14, +12 from flaws= 26

Remaining points at stage: 26

#Temp +8 to Strength and Stamina, +1 to Speed. -8 to Stealth, -4 to Dodge and Parry *Except since she is permanently slightly larger this is actually instead an additional Temp +4 to Strength and Stamina, +1 to Speed, -4 to stealth, -2 to Dodge and Parry, from what is read above*

Because of masochism and spare points and sheer utility, let’s go for Shrinking for our new giantess! To be human sized on temporary occasion. Let’s see…

~
""SHRINKING (GENERAL)

Action: Free • Range: Personal • Duration: Sustained • Cost: 2 points per rank
You can temporarily decrease your size, becoming smaller, harder to see — and hit — at the cost of losing Strength and speed. Every 4 ranks of Shrinking reduces your size rank by 1 (normal humans are size rank –2 by default) and each reduction in size rank subtracts 1 from your Strength and every two reductions in size rank subtract 1 from your ground speed rank. Add half your Shrinking rank (rounded down) to your active defenses. Add your Shrinking rank as a bonus to Stealth checks, since you are harder to spot, but apply half your rank (rounded down) as a penalty to intimidation checks (hard to be imposing when you’re tiny). Shrinking modifiers are restricted by power level limits.

So at Shrinking 12, you are size rank –5 (about 6 inches tall), and have a +6 bonus to active defenses and +12 Stealth bonus, but –3 Strength, –1 speed, and –6 Intimidation penalties.

EXTRAS

Atomic: At Shrinking 20 (and size rank –7), you can shrink down to the molecular or even atomic level, allowing you to pass through solid objects by slipping between their atoms. It takes at least a full turn to do so, possibly longer for larger objects. You’re effectively immune to damage and many effects at this scale, since you are essentially shifted out of the ordinary universe. The GM decides if a particular effect can reach you at the atomic level. If you have this extra, you might also acquire a Dimensional Travel effect allowing you to shift into a sub-atomic “universe” or similar realm. Flat +1 point.

Normal Strength: You retain your full Strength, Speed, and Intimidation while shrunk. +1 cost per rank.""
~~~

So let’s take four ranks of Temporary Shrinking Extra Normal Strength, for a cost of 2+1 CP each or 12 CP total from our twenty four, to get-

Bio:

Due in no small part to his assistant, Warbucks has been successful for the past 11 years.

That assistant is a superheroine that usually keeps him in line; immensely bigger at times and certainly stronger than the Professor at any time- in fact, super strong at normal human size as such things go-, but less savvy in many regards. He’s the rather large lady’s meal ticket, and she’s his obligated moral reminder. Thirty foot tall slaps tend to leave a mark even when totally encased in metal.

Unlike Faygan, miss Jadis Aedin, age twenty eight, actually is a fairly superhuman individual, and not merely at her biggest. They met when she was a protesting teenager in University and threatened him with his own armored car. By picking it up. And holding it over him.

When given this rather unique approach to pacifists protesting war, his response was to offer the young Greek woman a job as his consultant, if she wasn’t going to crush his limbs or kill him with the lingering threat. He would be sure that she got training and perspective on world matters and in combat, and she would make certain he never made a supervillain’s day with a steal deal. Or aggravate conflicts worse. Or kill people.

He has been trying to negotiate around that one ever since, but Jadis is very firm. No death dealing means no squish. Oh, she’s made the Professor quite a poorer man and more than a little frustrated that his lethal means are to be hindered with more constructive ones, but there’s absolutely no doubt she’s made him a better person… or at least, much less of a threat to the common good. If not for her pretended deference otherwise, one would very much place her as the lead character and him as the sidekick, honestly.

Jadis has always been the way she is, although her family has no history of it. When she was five, she was saving cats from olive trees by being twelve feet tall, and she gave the neighborhood nightmares when she was a bossy eight year old. Prior to her association with the Professor she had a fairly clean and innocent history, however, a few protest movements aside. Since, she has been in prison twice.

In fact it was actually where she met her wife, during that second incarceration (over a little matter of international smuggling to study alien tech on her employer’s part), and not ‘prison wife’ either, legally married one. Miss Jamie, in for arson and a lifelong pyromaniac though recoverying, is still living in Boston, Massachusetts. Some of her main goals in life beyond corralling Warbucks into doing Good Things are to visit the dear one regularly without endangering her like all too many superhuman tropes (and simultaneously ensure Jamie isn’t endangering others again), to renew her American citizenship via spousal contract for the fifth row in a row, and to help ensure the world stays a safer, happier place then aliens and certain types would leave it.

Jadis has subtly prevented many, many poor girls from making the mistake of mixing up with Faygan outside work, sometimes even without him noticing to complain.

There was a point when she helped to save a magical tailor’s life in a minor adventure the two had, and in return got a set of growing armor for her troubles, which definitely helped make her public image improve with less shredded costume and clothing at every use of her growth. She retains it to this day. Her name came from a love of literary work, particularly novels such as Gulliver’s Travels, whereas his title came from the obvious.
