Super Mutant Character Creation
Super Mutants (125 pts)
Super Mutants are gigantic gray or green skinned humanoid creatures who once were humans. They were created when an entity called ‘the Master’ dipped large amounts of humans in huge vats of glowing green fluid (modified version of the FEV virus), in an attempt to create a new dominant species – an army of Super Mutants – to replace humanity. The Vault Dweller destroyed the vats and killed the Master, after which the remnants of the Super Mutant army split up and went their separate ways.
Free Skills: Language (Native); Area Knowledge (at IQ; Home City). Few Super Mutants are literate.
