Origin: Pacific North-West woods
Habitat: Pacific North-West woods
General Description: Giant hominid apes well renowned for their astonishing size and strength as well as their extraordinary stealth and camouflage skills. The Sasquatch are believed to live in small family units and possess above average intelligence that allows for abstract thought (evident in cave paintings) and even rudimentary religion.
Friends, Associates, and Sidekicks: Other Sasquatch
Sworn Enemies: People
Special Powers: Unlike most Earth mammals, the Sasquatch utilize a form of infra-red vision that allows them to see their victims even in the complete darkness. The mechanism behind their vision is not entirely clear, and some researchers have suggested that it is not, in fact, based on infra-red, but on some other kind of yet unknown vision spectrum altogether. Further research into this mystery is definitely required.
Weapons of Choice: Bare hands or tree trunks which they use to club their victims
Weaknesses: The Sasquatch are extremely shy of their patchy appearance, and avoid camera like plague. They are so elusive in this regard that even motion picture makers are rarely able to capture them on film, despite the fact that they are filming actors in elaborate make-up and not the real Sasquatch.
Hobbies: Bear wrestling
Pet Peeves: People looking for “proofs” of Sasquatch existence. The Sasquatch know that once they are discovered it’s going to be only a matter of weeks before their habitat is swarming with biologists, journalists, hunters, etc. You might think that it’s not a big deal, but a daring Sasquatch will go to any length to destroy any record of their existence you were able to collect.
NOTE: Some researches suspect that the Sasquatch are secretly funding right-wing think-tanks to run a vicious smear campaign against anyone who claims to have seen a Sasquatch, accusing them of paranoia or even insanity. Many witnesses refuse to confirm their accounts out of fear of repercussions. Many of those who speak up end up institutionalized.
Best Lines: N/A
Total Estimated Power Rating: 9
2 Base Intellect Points + 5 Base Physical Power Points + 1 Shock Point + 1 Additional Point for Extreme stealth
Danger Level: High. If the Sasquatch decide to rid Pacific North West wilderness of your presence – they will.
Identification: If, while hiking in the Pacific North West, you encounter a gorilla like creature that looks like it requires a full-body Rogaine treatment, you can be sure that you are dealing with a Sasquatch. A horrific body odor is a frequently reported sign of the Sasquatch proximity.
How to Avoid: Chances of encountering a Sasquatch in densely populated areas are almost non-existent. If you are already in the woods – make sure not to provoke or attack any Sasquatch for they are extremely vengeful.
If you are accompanied by a female who happens to be menstruating – discard the female immediately – her scent might attract a lonely Sasquatch or a hungry grizzly.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Defending yourself against these beasts is almost entirely useless – they are always there where you least expect them. Running away is probably the best strategy, but do yourself a favor and discard any “souvenirs” from your encounter (preferably in such a way that the Sasquatch actually see you do it) to prevent the Sasquatch from chasing you down in the wilderness and their lawyers from destroying your reputation once and if you reach civilization.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Elephant rifles or other large caliber weapons might be useful if you succeed in getting a clear shot. The Sasquatch, however, are extremely stealthy, and getting a clear shot in densely wooded areas might prove problematic.
