-]Known Powers[-
Projection - Moderate -The character is able to impress upon others their strong emotions of choice at a range of 75 ft. The character is also beginning to impress less intense emotions upon others like irritation and contentment at random. (Example: they can choose to let their anger out but not their delight and their irritation can rub off on others without being aware that they are doing that because they are used to strong emotions being the problem)
Reception - Moderate - The character is strongly susceptible to strong emotions within a range of 100 ft.
Shields - Moderate - Moderate - The character is developing shields that vary around the intensity of their emotions.  They can shield strong emotions tightly, but lesser emotions that were not a problem before are harder to suppress because they overlook them. Only the most impressive situations will cause their shields to falter.
Weakness - Moderate - It is easy for the character to get lost in the emotions they feel and to confuse their own feelings with those of other people around them.  Being overwhelmed with emotions often leads to migraines.

Communicate - Journeyman - The character can communicate with up to two individuals simultaneously at an Adept level or four individuals at an Initiate level at a range of 150 ft.  The character can also incorporate smell into any vision projected on one individual at a range of 75 ft
Insight - Journeyman - The character can delve into deeper thoughts of one individual, it allows them can read subconscious thoughts that the individual hides at a range of 100 ft(Example: they are in the closet, they are hiding that they are lycan)
Persuasion - Adapt - The character develops the ability to persuade one individual to do minor actions at a range of 100 feet from them. (Example: turn left instead of right, stay a little longer at an event than planned)
Psychic Attack - Journeyman - The character can induce migraines that last up to 5 minutes or shooting pains that fade after one minute in another's head badly enough to make them collapse, within a range of 100 ft.
Shields - Journeyman - The character's shields are improving to withstand mental attack/disruption for any lesser preternatural
Weaknesses - Journeyman - Upon reaching this level the telepath has the mild paranoia, and begins to occasionally hear misplaced whispers.

-]Biography[-  The youngest daughter of a sitting diplomat, Ruari has seen it all, and still prefers the wilds.  She was an "accident" but one of many, as her parents are madly in love.  Not only that, but their Gifts compliment each other and only benefit her father's position. 

Growing up, Ruari prefered to run wild, as many Irish children do, and  danced in plenty of 'fairy circles', old ruins and forest glens, always with friends.  She did well in school, and her interest in history and its remenants only grew in high school.  It was only when their normally gregarious daughter skipped the second formal dance/ High Holiday in a row that they suspected something.  Her mother found her holed up, in the roots of a tree, snuggling a rabbit, and told her about her own gifts and the gifts of her father.  Realizing the voices in her head and the wild mood swings weren't her fault, Ruari returned to her home and began shielding training immediatly, both at home and in the same glades she enjoyed as a child.  She also found out a several of her friends had abilities too and one youngman she fancied was a Fey.  She discovered that one when his mother took a hand in teaching her how to actively use the Empath Gift.

She went to University College Dublin, where she got her Undergraduate degrees in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology with a minor in Irish Folklore.  She is currently studying at the Georgetown University to get her graduate Degree in Anthropology, or at least she will be.  The paid internship at the Natural History Museum is too good to pass up, so she takes just enough credits to keep her Student Visa good, though as a diplomat's child, the visa is really just paperwork.  The odd combination of degrees is of her own design, citing a desire to know both the history and the future of all humanoids.  She has her own reasons, but her papers were convincing enough to put her in the current arrangement.  While technically she could stay in the Embassy, she prefers the little farmhouse in nearby Maryland, as it gives her much needed silence.  Her parents also provide a moderate stipend so she can focus on her studies and the work at the National Museums without needing a second job.

She also uses the acreage to work on her Empathic and Telepathic Powers, just with animals instead of people.  She isn't afraid to "lean" on someone's emotions, but usually only in dire straits.  Ruari has avoided several muggings...and worse using guilt and fear.  And once the voice of a guy's Mum.  There had been quite a few 'accidents' when she was an adolescent, and several boarding schools left muchly changed.  At this point though, there is little chance of loosing her self control.  Unless she's been drinking, since Ruari lives up to some tales about the Irish and redheads, and can let her guard down when she's had some good whiskey and some dancing.  She uses music to center herself, a trick she learned from the Fey boy, who made both her fiddle and her flute.

Overall I don't see a huge issue with the character although I would prefer if she weren't Journeyman and Strong in her two powers. If one of those could be bumped down a level I would appreciate it. Going to have AJ take a look at this one too as she is better with gifted humans than I am.

I like this woman.  I think that Keyara must meet her.  and be her new drinking friend.

approved

But could you list the weaknesses and power descriptions in her sheet please? It makes it easier to see what anyone is working/playing with at a glance as necessary
