The first step in character creation is to determine the character’s origin. Roll d% on the following table:

Roll Origin
00-04 Alien
05-14 Changed Human
15-19 Magically Enhanced
20-39 Mutant
40-44 Mystic Human
45-49 Mythic
50-54 Robot
55-59 Simian
60-84 Skilled Human
85-99 Technologically Enhanced
Alien: The character is a being from another world or dimension such as a Martian, elemental, angel, or devil.
Changed Human: The character was human but became superhuman through some outside agency, often an accident or experiment.
Magically Enhanced: The character depends on magical paraphernalia – possibly of his or her own design – for super powers.
Mutant: The character was born with or destined to develop superhuman powers.
Mystic Human: The character controls sorcerous energies to give himself or herself extraordinary powers.
Mythic: The character is a member of a pantheon, a spirit or a non-human servant of a god.
Robot: The character is a robot or perhaps some other construct, such as a golem.
Simian: The character is an ape of some sort, intelligent – perhaps even super intelligent – and more human than most people.
Skilled Human: The character is a highly skilled human; any “powers” are actually superior training or specialized devices.
Technologically Enhanced: The character’s powers are the result of devices and gadgets.
