A creature from beyond the world.
A giant Scorpion, five meters tall, ten meters wide, its tail reaching up to the sky. It has the head of a lioness covered in armor of copper.... going up to the very carapace of the scorpion – actually made of copper and silver, glinting beautifully under the sun. Not the dull copper of coins – but a rich, lively copper, the one of masterworks, its perfected form. And the silver... almost but not quite moonsilver, argent in opposition to the copper... and, in opposition to both, carmine eyes that shine lively like blood that never coagulates, in Amika’s eyes, on Amika’s tongue... and on the red sun in its forehead. Between the claws, another two eyes – when they lay open and ready to strike, four carmine eyes watch intently at every movement...
Over the armor on the lioness’ head, lie straps which its handler, standing atop its great carapace, wide as a small ship’s and just as comfortable to be upon, can hold to command it – Lucent does not need it most times, but finds the image of it more than enough imposing to do so. Amika possesses two unique abilities.
One is akin to the spirit power Affinity Elemental Control, but works only on Sand – she may move sand around, creating walls, whirlwinds and buildings. She does so by moving her claws, the eyes within them shining in a variety of colors that tinge the sands... as the structures are done, she may reinforce them, and they seem like spires or walls made of gems. Unfortunately for those who wished to make money out of it, they return to be sand in a few days, leaving only colored sand that slowly returns to its original color...
Another is the ability to breathe fire – with a dice pool equal to Dexterity+Thrown, an accuracy equal to her Perception and Damage equal to her Stamina.
