Backstory
Nicknamed "Slobbertooth" for his notably large tusks, Josiah Willows was born a SINless child to his William and Zelda in Seattle in 2055, Josiah Willows did not expect to be a runner. He began manifesting the gifts of an adept when he was 8 year old, gifts his parents encouraged him to further develop and hone along with the natural athletic gifts he was born with. It was a nice childhood. His parents made enough money to own a small home, and they lived in a tightly knit corner of the sprawls. They had enough money that he was able to practice martial arts and still eat. He made fast friends with the Armstrong children, a third generation Japanese family, enough that he  would pick up Japanese, in addition to the Or'zet and English spoke in his home. To this day, he relies on Kazuya Armstrong as his primary fixer to get the tools he needs.

The happy childhood was destroyed in December of 2062. Josiah returned to his home one evening after visiting the Armstrongs to find it burning. His father had been hung and then shot in front of the building, his mother knocked unconscious and left with everything he and his family owned to burn in the fire. It was a Humanis hate crime executed by some small time gangers. That was also the first time that Slobbertooth heard the voice of the Wolf, chiding him to hunt the men who killed his family. For the next three years, the Armstrong family would provide him shelter, and he taught himself how to accurately fire a gun, keeping an ear open for news about the men murdered William and Zelda Willows.

In 2068, human supremacists began threatening the Armstrong family, having learned that they were, in their words "protecting a tusker who defames the purity of our sprawl." Slobbertooth left the house with everything he owned the following evening to protect the Armstrong family from further violence. Slobbertooth began his career running in the shadows, after "dealing" with the supremacists threatening Kazuya's family. While Slobbertooth relies on runs to pay the bills, he takes particular pride in the completion of any job that targets Humanis' or any other Human Supremacist group's operations, and will often jump at the chance to complete a job to get him closer to his parent's killers.

Question: I would like to do a mild rebuild of my character.

Not major stuff. The primary focus (shooting), character traits (90% backstory), adept powers, weapon, and the majority of gear should stay the change. The major change is I would like to change out unarmed for pistols, and also swap out the customized ares crusader for a customized light or heavy pistol (still a bit undecided there).

Description
If the words "troll pretty boy" could ever possibly fit together into the same sentence, it would be in reference to this man.  Clean teeth, evenly symmetrical horns that aren't too large, smooth skin, and an Adonis-like body fitness nuts only dream about.  His golden blonde hair is kept long and straight, a veritable mane extending just past his jawline, reflecting the sunlight almost as well as his ice-blue eyes.  Only a few scars here or there mar his otherwise perfect features, but those only do to accentuate a rugged, fearless disposition.  When comfortable, he dresses comfortably, loose jeans and a snug t-shirt donning his frame, a lined trenchcoat covering that for when he goes out.  On the job, though, that changes quickly.  Gearing up, his armored jacket covers what seems to be a sort of BDU outfit, his head covered by a stylised helmet decorated with golden feathers etched on the sides.  His voice rumbles with power, giving off the notion that this man could hurt you...but chooses not to.

As soon as Torrent hears from Slobbertooth about the meeting he disguises himself using Melanin control and face sculpt in order to look like an African-American human.He wishes he had the time to change his hair with keratin control as well.

I've put some points to fashion and cinema because I'd like Torrent to sometimes  impersonate "old" movie actors when he changes his appearance, if that's ok with you?It's like a joke only he thinks he gets(as well as a good way to protect his personal info as much  as possible) .This time I want him to look, act and talk like Denzel Washington's character from the film "American Gangster"

1.Check to see if I can change multiple features:Body+Magic =9dp
Body+Magic test: 9d6t5 4
(Changing ears, nose, mouth, eyes to look like Denzel's)

2.Disguise check: skill 6+ intuition 4 + face sculpt 1= 11 dp
Duisguise check: 11d6t5 5
I got a mental limit of 4, so I can use only 4 out of 5 hits

3.Impersonation check: skill 5+ Charisma 4 + voice control 1= 10 dp
Impersonate Denzel's character: 10d6t5 5

I got a social  limit of 6, so I can add 5 hits to my disguise threshold.


PS: I noticed you prefer a different dice roller but I hope you don't have a problem with orokos.If there's a problem I will re-roll without objection.

No, your dice roller is ok. Just my personal preference.

Ok, Mr. Denzel, you are good to go. Let's see if there are any old school cineasts out there ;D

Yeah, she is! She's one of these rare characters you feel intensively from the first build on. I just love her unlike most chars.

Do you want me to roll the dice? Depending on how weak the protection is I might even buy enough hits to rock'n'roll the system.

don't bother, we'll roll enough dice as it is. If I make such blanket statements you can count them as a successful roll I made behind the screen.
