The Power of Good Fortune Overview: Licia has the ability to influence probability in the radius of up to half a mile. While she can to a degree control the range there is a persistent radius immediately around herself. At it's core the power manipulates odds to largely be in the favor of those in the range of influence. What involves being lucky is somewhat subjective and specific to the time. There have been people who longed for pain as an escape from something emotional, to then find themselves apart of an accident. Others have found themselves in a winning streak as one might hope for. There is however some inherent nature of chaos brought on by this abilities nature. As when everyone is lucky it can become a matter of question if anyone is. It also only goes to certain levels, a bullet is still a bullet, gravity still applies and so on.
Sub Traits
  • Health: She isn't known for getting sick or aging beyond her appearance of being in her late twenties. At some point her practice of magic just wasn't as needed gifting her with longevity. She theorizes that at the age of seven hundred seventy seven her body will give out. Until then however she seems in great shape.
  • Survivability: Lucky has a body that can take damage like any other. She does however have a high chance of surviving the wounds all the same. Besting the chances feint scars line her body of wounds that should have been fatal. By some chance however of course she endured and with help has continued going. Her most serious showing being when she was kicked from a castle and broke her back and the instance when she took a ballista bolt to the abdomen.
  • Uncanny Dodge: Be it by a sudden itch, a decision to move or just seeing something coming Licia has a tendency to avoid harm heading in her direction many times. Evading serious efforts to afflict harm. Or even when this fails often taking glancing wounds as opposed to the full frontal force. This doesn't cover everything as a human she can't outrun a bullet or anything of that nature. They just have a tendency to graze her instead.
  • Unplanned Efficiency: When everyone is lucky nobody is or you have to plan to be even more so to remain fortunate. Simply put the level of success Lucky usually finds for herself is by not focusing to much on it. This a core component to what has become her distinct style.
  • Guessing: The simple act of often picking the right code or door or other similar opstical. Her luck simply helping figure out what she should do on a whim.
  • Comprehension: Studying most languages new and old, both common and of a magic nature has mixed in with Licia's fortunate nature to make her often able to read and speak things she shouldn't. Even when amongst ruins of something she's never encountered she has a high chance of putting all the pieces together.
  • Defied Odds: A once a day choice to do what by all means should be impossible. To do this Lucky has to plan and understand what's coming on some level. Arguably an almost miracle of a performance, the range of her influence is upon using this cut down to just the local area around herself for a following three hours.
Fighting Styles
  • HEMA: Providing a large understanding of historical weaponry of course the other aspects of this are bare knuckle boxing and greek wrestling. In particular Licia favors what was called Irish Stand Down boxing and the use of techniques that were banned as boxing became more of a sport. Chokes kicks and holds are not off limits to her, especially given that fights don't lend themselves to such regulations. Why the toe to toe style though? This is because it's nature is to limit if not outright negate maneuvering it's boxing an opponent in or keeping the distance to each other close. With this she can afford to keep luck just to herself rather then the usual area of effect. She can avoid more and endure more because luck is on her side, while her opposition is pinned down.
  • Improvisional Close Quarters: While from a distance it is possible for her to be lucky in aim while the target is not, reality is more fights will take place in more mid to close range spaces. Because of this usually both sides are lucky, to counter act this Licia adopted of style of combat that focused on unorthodox techniques. Methods that shouldn't work but would for her. There is an obvious reason to not hip fire aim is off, the body isn't as supported against recoil and so on. There is a reason most will hold a firearm with two hands in a triangular position, supported structure to make the best of the weapon. Licia had to abandon this to be efficient, use less cover, fire while moving, dual wield weapons even if rifles, not bothering to aim. Repeating her combat style doesn't really work for almost anyone, its bruising on the body and exposing ones self and so on. Do to her luck being even more elevated then the area of influence though it does work for her. In addition to this environment traversing wild aimed structure is her hand to hand style. Sometimes using the wrong grip on a weapon, using wild swings or using aimed strikes. For example in a knife fight one will aim for the wrist holding the other knife, intending to get a position on either end of the wrist the wrist itself isn't to likely. But is for Lucky,
Standardized/Frequent Gear

  • Body Armor: Ghost Body armor is what Licia usually opts for in the field, light weight and comfortable it doesn't provide the fullest range of protection of course. It's size and weight however is far more preferable for the fortunate mercenary. Knife and Edge levels set at two to resist a majority of knives and hand guns that may be used against her.
  • Provisions: Eight magazines for the M9A3 on belt, four magazines for the Bushmaster ACR at the right leg. She usually packs an additional barrel as well for the ACR against her back should it take damage in the extremes of what is often metahuman involved combat. She carries three HEPD-SD grenades and four HEDP-SD grenades. And then of course is usually at least one liter of water, a days worth of rations, a small med kit, batteries and a bluetooth communication device, this may increase in volume or switched out accordingly if not in an urban setting. Lastly is rappel gear Including a hundred meters of rope eleven millimeter cord, the harness, and plenty of grappling gear and anchor slings.
  • Combat Knife: While not as concealable Licia favors a fixed blade in the field, the sturdy nature and greater ability for parrying is a go to for her. She choses the Gerber Silver Trident designed by Seal Team 2 Chief Jim Watson the silver trident has a double edge clip point serrated both top and bottom blade. Heat treated the one fifty four cm steel has a Rockwell Hardness of fifty nine to sixty one. A razor sharp edge while having a tough design finished with a black coating to prevent corrosion and reduce visibility in the field. DuPont Hytrel handle with the center hard while the surface is textured and soft for a reliable grip in use. Sheathed above the left breast for a fairly quick draw into an upper guard stance with a blade six point eight inches in length.
  • Side Arms: The Beretta M9A3 is Licia's go to, having two holstered at her sides. Each is naturally outfitted with the ability to have a silencer put on, when not equipped the silencers are usually resting on her left leg. The M9A3 uses a sand resistant seventeen round magazine. Firing a nine millimeter round accurately at up to a hundred meters.
  • Rifle: The Bushmaster ACR sometimes with the extended barrel equipped and sometimes not, almost always has the silencer attached from the start though of course she can remove it should it not be required. The ACR uses five point fifty six nato rounds with a magazine capacity of thirty plus the round in the chamber. Accurate up to five hundred meters. An underslung grenade launcher attachment is assigned to the weapon and a red dot sight for when Licia should she chose to take aim. Using either the HEPD forty millimeter ground burst high explosive round best for anti personnel use. Or the HEDP forty millimeter dual purpose rounds designed to penetrate sixty millimeters at least of steel, a weapon choice she often uses as well against durable metahumans.
