Typhon's Abilities

Starting Ability: Scattershot allows Typhon to make Area attacks, hitting every enemy in a particular battlefield area with a single shot. His aim is so precise that his allies are never hit. This ability costs 4 AP to use (instead of the usual 3 for an attack) and requires a card play to hit. It must be used on the Player Turn.

Secret Techniques: Time Bullets These cases of ammunition have fallen through time with Typhon. When the bullets strike home, they deliver devastating chronal charges that can age, slow, or displace an enemy. Using these bullets exhausts Typhon, as they steal time from him. This ability cannot be combined with Scattershot.

Design Notes: Typhon went through a couple different versions before I was happy with him. He's your Auron/Vincent/Clint Eastwood type; he's from a future that he can't quite remember. Unlike many prophetic characters, he's not being a jerk by withholding information - he's genuinely confused. In game terms, Typhon is on anti-mook patrol. He'll mow down half a dozen smaller foes without breaking a sweat. He's also the team's ranged combatant when Blitz is out of the fight.
