Example of Protheion against opponents with the Wounds Attribute
- An Umbra Samaritan with Protheion who wins the CC Face to Face Roll against a Fusilier who fails his BTS roll increases his Wounds Attribute by one point. The target (the Fusilier) loses one point from his Wounds Attribute and goes into the Unconscious state. At this point, if the Umbra Samaritan uses another Short Skill to make a Coup de Grâce with Protheion, he will increase his Wounds Attribute by one more point without having to make any CC Rolls. Just like in other Coup de Grâce situations, the Fusilier will go from an Unconscious state to Dead state. At this point, the Umbra Samaritan has reached the maximum number of Wounds points allowed for this Special Skill and will not be able to increase them any further. However, if he was to lose some points from the Wounds Attribute, he could always use Protheion again against an enemy trooper and, if successful, increase his Wounds Attribute once more.
Example of Protheion against opponents with the Structure Attribute
- If the Umbra Samaritan faces an opponent with the Structure Attribute (STR) in CC, he will be able to use the MODs given by any Protheion Level he has available. However, if the Umbra Samaritan wins the CC Face to Face Roll, he will not be able to implement the Special Effect, so he will not increase his Wounds Attribute.
Protheion is a bio-genetic enhancement that allows the owner to extract nutrients and organic matter from other biological entities in order to regenerate their own wounds or to increase their physical resilience. This morally questionable enhancement provides those who own it with a greater autonomy and capacity to survive in hostile environments. Protheion not only improves the physical functionality of its user, but also lets the user feed and recover from any damage received while operating without support or behind enemy lines.
However, beyond the tactical advantages this enhancement provides, the offensive capability of Protheion is exceptional and it hasn't gone unnoticed by military instructors. A specific close combat technique has been developed around Protheion, a technique that combines blows and maneuvers from various combat arts adapted to the advantages provided by this bio-genetic enhancement. As a result, all Protheion experts are fearsome opponents in close combat, because they add the psychological impact of feeding on their opponents to their combat capabilities.
|N3 Frequently Asked Question||FAQ Version: 1.2|
|Q: Can a troop with the Special Skill Protheion declare an Attack with this skill against an Unconscious trooper that is in Sepsitorized State and controlled by you?|
|A: No. Sepsitorized troops are considered Allies even when Unconscious. So, it can not be the target of attacks from his own troops.|
