Bio-Mechanist[edit | edit source]

Bio-Mechanists create things from the power of their soul and the molecules around them. In a fashion known only to them, Bio-Mechanists can create anything from diminutive size to colossal size with the right training. Some believe the Bio-Mechanist are the workers of the gods and some believe them just to men who think they can challenge gods power, but no matter who it is they must admit the Bio-Mechanist can do great things. Bio-Mechanists gain points allowing them to create and modify things and themselves, these points also power their other abilities.
