Born to be kings and princes of the universe, Demigods are well and truly better than other men. They carry within them the spark of divinity, and are technically only half-mortal as one of their parents is a god, spirit or other aetheric entity. Whatever their divine heritage, they were born faster, stronger, more charismatic and more intelligent than mere mortals and live a life of prophecy and providence.
It is not just feasts, glory and concubines for Demigods, however. Fate has other plans. Their divine spark draws calamity to them like moths to a flame. Wherever they go, they find insurmountable challenges to overcome, unstoppable beasts to put down, and impossible tasks to complete. The life of a Demigod is rarely idle. Between their fortuitous birth and great accomplishments, some Demigods dedicate themselves to helping the world as everyone is less fortunate than they; but more than a few Demigods become tyrants and conquerors, claiming everything they can as their’s by divine right.

Perk: Magic Hammer: When you hit a character or creature in combat, you may spend a Sigil to prevent the target from using any supernatural abilities until your next turn, or to bypass any supernatural defences the target may have.
Quirk: Fate’s Challenge: You gain a Hero Level that starts at 10. Roll a d100 at the start of each session. If the result is higher than your Hero Level, add d10 to it. If the result is lower than, or equal to, your Hero Level, then the GM will give you a heroic challenge to complete this session. Completing the challenge resets your Hero Level to 10.
