For example, a sword held by a character who activates APS: Fire would now appear to be made of fire. Can protect up to 100 pounds of armor, weapons, and equipment.

Complex weapons and equipment, like guns, energy weapons, electronics and mechanical devices do NOT change with the super being, but ARE protected by the Bio-Aura.

1. If subject is angry, scared, calm, etc.
2. Happy or sad.
3. Lying or telling the truth. Not always accurate, however. Roll percentile; 1-60%, superbeing is reasonably sure, 61-89% uncertain but thinks subject is one or the other, 90-00% absolutely certain and correct.
4. If subject is healthy or hurt. No exact diagnosis, but can tell if the subject is suffering serious, moderate, minor, or insignificant injury.
5. Exhausted or fresh and strong.
6. Suffering from illness, internal injury, blood loss, drugs or insanity.
7. Tensing for an attack or flight.

So, my brother has told you everything? He always has been a bit of a blabbermouth. What all did he tell you?

Yeah, that is how it happened. We were born on the flagship of the Arismal Defense Force. Of course, we aren't really a defense force now, since we don't have a planet to defend. So a more fitting name would be Arismal Expeditionary Force. An expedition to find a new homeworld.

Yes, yes, I know I tend to digress at times. Just something you will have to get used to. Where were we? Oh yes, my history. Well, as I am sure my brother told you, we were among the first born on board the ship after the disaster. First set of twins, too. That was a pretty big deal. You see, twin births are unusual among our people. Something like one in....

Sorry, off on a tangent again, was I? Ok, look. Quick and dirty. We grew up on a military ship, surrounded by the military life. Whether we liked it or not, we were going to be military. When our powers manifested, we were fast-tracked for officer status. Not because of the powers, but because we had so many. While most of our race has powers, few have so many, or as powerful as ours. I was more interested in the scientific pursuits, while my brother just wanted to look good for the girls. Not that it did him much good. His personality is a bit too fiery for.......

Ok, ok! Relax! Yes, we were officers. Yes, we were sent to try and find a habitable world for our people. Yes, we found a probe, obviously sent by your people. We, or I should say I, studied it, and determined where it came from. We set course for here, following the telemetry of the probe. Studying the probe, I was surprised at how similar our races are to each other. Did you know we only have three base pair chromosomes difference in our....Oh, of course you do. Forgive my tangent again.

So, anyway....we entered your solar system and approached this planet. Earth, you say? If you say so. What? How did we avoid detection? Child's play, really. We simply kept another solar body between our ship and your planet as much as possible. It was simple in the outer reaches of your system. Such large planets out there! And plenty of moons to hide behind, as well. Did you know, that one of the moons of your sixth planet is....

Sorry. Yes, I will try to focus more on your questions. After passing through your asteroid belt, we hid behind a red planet. Mars, I believe you call it. We waited until your moon was in position to cover us, and simply moved up behind it. Started our scans, launched a couple of small probes so we could get more data. I, for one, wanted to just collect the data from there, and then get back to our people to report our findings. My brother, however, convinced Eric that we should get more detailed surveys, and the only way to do that was to actually enter your atmosphere. As we were entering, alarms started popping off. Eric was convinced he could land safely, though, so instead of simply bouncing off your atmosphere and returning to space, he directed us down, into the middle of one of your oceans. Luckily, we managed to land on a small island. We bribed some of the local inhabitants to take us to a more civilized location, where we managed to procure some clothing and other basic supplies. Someplace called Australia, I believe. We then booked passage on one of your antique flying machines, and went to a place called Mexico, where we learned of a place further north we might be able to get some help in returning to our people, or at least contacting them.

However, we must have made some kind of error, because we were detained at the border, and turned over to you people. And now, you have been keeping us here for almost one of your solar years, questioning us and saying you are "acclimating us" to how your society functions. And now you tell us you want us to be policemen, of sorts? I suppose we could assist you in controlling your criminal element.

At least, until the fleet arrives...
