The Jammer Hack: Grommam

 

Brief: Grommam are simian-humanoids with fur colors of browns mixed with reds or blacks with dark colored eyes. Grommam are common on verdant planets where males have traditionally served as soldiers, hunters, and farmers while females have served as the Priesthood of a tribe. This is further emphasized by the physical makeup of their bodies as males tend to be stronger and hardier. While females show themselves as thoughtful when considering the best course of action.

Traits: Grommam: Medium size. Normal speed. Normal vision.

Climbing: Grommam are natural climbers and can move at a normal speed when climbing. They also gain an Advantage on any Attribute Test involving climbing or maintaining their grip. This is typically Str-based.

(Male): Physically Tough (1/day): Once per day, a Male Grommam may roll with the Advantage on one Str or Con test of their choice.

(Female): Mentally Adroit (1/day): Once per day, a Female Grommam may roll with the Advantage on one Int or Wis test of their choice.

Notes

-Kandoran is both a Grommam male and and a caster, an occupation that is viewed as unusual both for Grommam in general, let alone a male. While being a caster is not unheard of, a majority of Grommam occult is based on the clerical priesthood dedicated to Konga, the Living Divine. The Priesthood is formed by several powerful female Clerics who are known to commune and speak to the great ape living on the Grommam homeworld.

-Is currently involved as an independent adventurer working within the Korjal Moon Dispute. This is an on-going conflict between the Scro Scorpius Fleet, Shou Expeditionary Forces, and the Grommam Korjal Legion. The three forces have varying grips on regions of the planet, and the fighting has also opened discovery of a number of ancient dungeons that has drawn adventurers.

-Uses a focus crystal, a white quartz (also known as a lightning stone) on the end of his staff. He uses it as part of his spell channeling. It also hurts a fair deal when struck against the head or vitals.
