Racial Natural Abilities
Night Vision Range: 300ft, hawk-like colour vision.
Bone Regeneration (special) 80% of their natural M.D.C. is in bone plating that serves as armour. If any of this horn or bone is broken or damaged in any way, it regenerates at a rate of 2D6+4 M.D.C. per day.
Regenerate Hands and Feet (special) The only part of their body not covered in bone armour are their hands and feet. When these are severed, they regenerate completely within 1D4+2 weeks! About 10 M.D.C. per foot, 28 M.D.C. per hand, and 20 M.D.C. per individual claw.
Fire/Heat Resistance Even M.D. flame does half damage.

Occupational Natural Abilities
Trail Blazing Can cut and mark trails through the wilderness for others to follow. Base skill: 20% +5%/lvl. A failed skill roll means the trail cannot be followed by others as intended.
Cross Country Pacing Can pace themselves physically and mentally as well as pace their rations for long distance (if familiar with mode of travel.) Combined with the Land Navigation skill, this also enables them to accurately predict how long the trip will take to within 2D6×10 minutes, 6D6 if unfamiliar with the area (which takes twice as long for a trip with a group.) See Rifts: Ultimate Edition, page 99, for more details on this skill. Base skill: 35% +5%/lvl.
Cartography Can create accurate maps with a wide variety of tools (though if digital, has to roll under Computer Operation skill as well,) and also includes the knowledge of Mathematics: Basic at 50%. Base skill: 45% +5%/lvl. A successful roll indicates an accurate and beautiful map, while a failed roll indicates missed detail and scaling/locations being off by 1D10 miles.

Personal Information
True Name: Rokamok Ron-Yerdak
Gender: Female
Occupation: Mountain Guide and Protector
Age: 298 years
Lifespan: 680 years
Height: 8′ 3″
Weight: 483 lbs.
Insanity(s): Phobia: Large Crowds
Sentiments Toward Coalition State: Hatered and fear, will avoid territories at all costs, but will happily kill them if not overpowered.
Sentiments Toward D-Bees: Indifferent, friendly enough with the right reactions.
Sentiments Toward Humans: Wary, with her fearsome appearance she is often unwelcome in human towns, even reported to mercenary groups or patrols.

Born in the Ronii Tribe, Rok had more opportunities to experience the peaceful and civilized life than other Tribes (or at least as peaceful as Tokanii get, considering the intense competition, violent pastimes, and rowdy lifestyle they all loved.) Though she was raised in a smallish community of Ronii and had contact with a nearby human settlement, the wilds and mountains called to Rok. Quite self sufficient from a young age, she ventured into the nearby forests, caves, and mine systems, learning the ways of nature and the various creatures and D-Bees who lived in them. She became friend to the mountain-dwelling Fae Folk and other D-Bees, and made the craggy cliffs and peaks her home when she reached adulthood. A younger, more wild Ronii named Dugglotch braved the mountain trek to ferry supplies to the town on the other side, and after a number of years as his guide and friend, they were mated and enjoyed raising 4 rambunctious children. The children were grown and moved on when Dugg died in a raid, defending his wares and fighting to keep the bandits away from their mountain home. The few that survived the encounter were tracked, trapped, and killed in the cave systems by a vengeful Rok. She traveled for a couple of decades, eventually meeting another Tonkanii and entering in a romance with him, though the relationship was brief as the Tokae and Ronii would always share a rivalry. This resulted in her second litter, which she was happy to raise alone in the mountains. She now lives contentedly in a cabin she and Dugg built, wrestling other D-Bees, assisting the Fae Folk, and guiding travellers through its winding paths and tunnels.
Family Tree: Ronii-born, thus the “Ron-” in her clan name. 2 litters, each of 4 children, litters set 52 years apart. First litter comprised of 3 sons (Madrilt, Berylox, Zagrat) and 1 daughter (Akinkara), second litter with all 4 daughters (Tuthrit, Myyrwin, Yirreg, Aadryt.) Still in occasional contact with children. First mate died, second mate left. Parents old and living a nomadic lifestyle. Siblings not in contact, may even be some she doesn’t know (she was in their first litter, only child to survive past adolescence.)
