A fiction is exactly what is sounds like, a being formed from the imagination of a mortal. In reality, a fiction is actually an Intellect Spirit , that has manifested a physical form based on inspiration drawn from a mortal mind. However, once the form is taken, the Being is, for all intents and purposes, the fictional character who the Spirit appears to be (ex: A Fiction of Captain James T. Kirk, IS Captain James T. Kirk physically and mentally). The Fiction does retain knowledge of who it truly is, but they will not admit this to anyone, though they do go out of their way to fit in (meaning Captain Kirk will blend in, not run around asking where his starship is, or making up stories about people’s heads getting caught in mechanical rice pickers, but will act as a regular person, who just happens to be James T. Kirk.) Fictions are almost exclusively Science-Fiction characters, though on occasion there has been a superhero or two.
It is important to note that when not in their heroic form, there are subtle physical differences form their heroic form. (James T. Kirk in normal form might have red hair or a mustache while his Heroic Form IS James T. Kirk). Also, the fiction is influenced strongly by their “muse”, the source of their version of their Fiction. This means that there is a link of sorts between the Fiction and their Muse, and should something happen to their Muse, the Fiction could be killed. Also, Consequences beyond minor, may also affect the Fiction’s Muse in unknown ways.
High Concept Must include fictional nature (ex: Fiction Security Guard or Fiction Soldier)
Human Form (+1)
Heroic Change (-1) : Works similar to Beast Change, except the Fiction changes from their normal every day appearance to their fictional appearance. (Ex. Captain Kirk shifts from looking like William Shatner in normal street clothes to Captain Kirk complete with Classic Uniform, Phaser, Tricorder, and Communicator). All powers fall under this form, and are utilized through any items that appear during the change, except for:
Important Skills: None
Minimum Refresh Cost (-Varies, Min 2)
