Rurouni KJS NIGHTSHADE
boot speed transporter

Team: Mystics
Keywords: L.A.W., Shadowpact, Spy, Suicide Squad
Range: 6 x 1

DIAL:

STRENGTHS:
She's a Mystic, a transporter and inexpensive enough, but it's her SP that makes her worth playing: super poisonous Smoke Cloud! An enemy caught at the end of a round in her smoke gets dealt 2 clicks. This is great against Defend characters, Stealthers and high defense characters in general -- she can force them off their best defenses easily by forcing them to push to avoid taking the two damage instead. Moreover, she can push herself to force the issue and gain a better defense in Super Senses. Late-dial, she maintains utility as a taxi and a Barrier-builder.

WEAKNESSES:
Short-lived. Can't Barrier through a push on top of her dial. The points for transporter move + attack ability are pretty wasted on her low damage and attack values.

CARDS TO CONSIDER:
FLASHBANG, always, so that when you see that soft but high-defense target with one or two tokens out there, she can run out there and choke 'em with her SP. In Unrestricted play, double up with DOUBLE-TIME to grant her the ability to reach anyone with that tactic for free; as a transporter, she won't take the pushing click.

IN SUM: A cheap source of: Mystics TA, Barrier, damage without a die roll and a taxi as well, she's a min/maxer's dream piece. Or she would be with a stat nudged up here or there. 4 of 5.
