Colin becomes a scholar or possibly a Communication&Empathy mage's apprentice. He will probably get some minor defense skill, like Staff; various other skills will turn into their nearest cognates.


Mostly just alter the TL of various skills, I think, and change the languages he knows. (Ancient Mayan, Egyptian, etc . . . )

Near Future:

Pretty much the same changes as Modern, but he might have a few more defensive skills so that he can be useful when the group is on a "stealth dig" on someone else's property . . .

Colin Kinazcy is very, very good with languages. He's not nearly so good with people, who behave in ways stranger than Kintaran dialect declensions. In the Archeology department, where people dig up dead civilizations with unknown languages, he's a highly sought-after grad student, even if he does tend to stutter and drop things in the presence of any attractive and/or friendly female. (And compose half-way decent love-poems that the subject will probably never see . . . )

Colin is currently one of the grad students studying under Steve Heinrich. He's also one of the tidiest, with an ability to put things in places and find them again later - admittedly, something of a "neat freak," but hey, somebody has to be good at the detail-work, right? Colin often winds up in charge of expedition cargo.

If TL15 isn't your idea of Space, just scale down accordingly. Piloting (contragrav belt) will probably turn into Piloting (Aircar) or some such.
