EQUIPMENT: Gas Sprayers – Body Points 30. Doctor Poison has the following sprays on her at all times: Knock-Out – This spray, made up of a concentrated form of VERSED syrup, instantly renders the target unconscious for three hours unless a successful Heroic Physique or willpower roll is made. The spray also has the added side effect of wiping the target’s memory of up to five minutes before it is applied, unless the Physique or willpower roll is made. The canister has a dispersal range of 12 inches and contains enough spray to affect 10 people (1 spray per person); Poison Gas – (victim must make a Heroic Legendary resistance roll or die within three rounds – if an antidote is administered within three rounds, the victim takes 4Dx5 damage instead); Regurgitation Gas – Fills a 100 square-foot area with gas. Anyone caught within this area must make a successful Very Difficult Physique or willpower roll or become violently ill and lose all actions for the next 10 rounds. Doctor Poison often uses needles in addition to gas sprayers. Lüger P08 Parabellum pistol (BDV 5Dx3, bullets are usually poisoned)

HISTORY: Dr. Poison II is the grand-daughter of the Princess Maru, the original Doctor Poison of the 1940s. Though she doesn’t like being called “Doctor Poison”, no other name is known for her. Furthermore, she has adopted a costume quite similar to that of her ancestor.

Though Princess Maru was Japanese, the current Dr. Poison’s ancestry is unclear. She has grey eyes, which implies that her mother or grandmother had their children with a Westerner. On the other hand, developing lighter eye colour was a classic of Axis medical experimentation, so she may owe more to that than to normal genetics.

In her costume, Poison’s upper and lower eyelids are pulled back with molecularly bonded applique, and her tear ducts receive periodic stimulation to compensate for the dryness. Hooks pull her lips back in an horrible rictus, and a desiccant keeps the salivating from being too much of a problem – though she still occasionally drools.

Her mask is also attached to her face, and presumably takes a special procedure and chemical to be removed. This is intended to make her unidentifiable, repulsive and unreadable. It’s successful across the board.

Dr. Poison has a dictaphone somewhere in her cowl or costume, and is constantly taking medical notes and making scientific observations for her journals, seemingly muttering to herself.
