In Nomine Revisited: MAD JACK WHEELIE!!!!!

…And this would be the Platonic Ideal of the character that I inevitably end up playing.  I’ve never used him in a game, though.  Mad Jack Wheelie, truthfully, is probably mostly just for looking at.

Mad Jack Wheelie – Google Docs

Mad Jack Wheelie
Ofanite Master of Valor
Lunatic

Corporeal Forces: 4 Strength: 6 Agility: 10
Ethereal Forces: 6 Intelligence: 12 Precision: 12
Celestial Forces: 6 Will: 12 Perception: 12

Vessel: Human Male/6, Charisma +2

Skills: Area Knowledge (Everywhere Interesting/6), Chemistry/6, Dodge/6, Driving/6*, Fighting/6, Knowledge (How To Walk a Thin Line/6, Strategy/6), Large Weapon (Hutriel/6**, Sword/6, Truck/6), Move Silently/6, Musical Instrument/-10 (Bagpipes)***, Ranged Weapon (Bagpipes/6, Machine gun/6, Pistol/6, Rifle/6, Shotgun/6), Singing/-10****, Small Weapon (Ducks/6, Knife/6) Tactics/6

*Including such unusual vehicles as horses, unicycles, V-2 rockets, beer barrels and Halley’s Comet.
**It’s a long story, and not a particularly relevant one.
***Yup.  That’s a target number of 2 on 2d6. It literally takes almost a Divine Intervention to get Mad Jack Wheelie to play the bagpipes properly.
****Ditto.

Songs: Battle (All/6), Blades (All/6), Light (Celestial/6), Motion (All/6), NC (All/6), Shields (All/6)

Attunements: Seraph of War, Ofanite of War, Malakite of War, Ofanite of Destiny, Ofanite of Divine Fire, Ofanite of the Wind, Howl*, One on One, Proficiency (Machine Guns), Proficiency (Sword), Proficiency (Unarmed), Proficiency (Truck)**, Proficiency (Duck)***, Proficiency (Tactical Nuke)****, Scabbard*****, Sure-Footed, Incarnate Law, Master of Valor, ‘Mad Jack Wheelie’

*This is a literal Howl: actually, it’s more like a bark.
**Yes, this means that he adds the CD of a successful Precision roll to Power whenever he runs over somebody with a truck.
***Ditto with attacks utilizing a duck.
****Guess.
*****Rumors that Laurence was cajoled into gifting him with a Scabbard Attunement with a rather increased upper weight limit have not been confirmed beyond a reasonable doubt.  After all, Mad Jack Wheelie could just have been given a Los Angeles-class nuclear submarine with the Summonable Feature.

‘Mad Jack Wheelie’
This is not an Attunement: it’s more of an explicit enumeration of just how obnoxious his tactical skills are.  As it stands, Mad Jack Wheelie has a target number of 24 in Tactics and Strategy, before his… unique… artifact is taken into account.  That works out to an auto-success with a minimum CD of 13, just in case it needs to be spelled out.
