3 Smoking Hot : +1/+1d6 Striking Appearance (vs. all characters)
5 Heroic Parry: 5 (, Each level of Heroic Parry grants +1 OCV to Block. Normally if a character misses an attack roll to Block, they can no longer continue to make successive Block attempts. However, a character can expend a level of Heroic Parry to allow themselves to reroll a failed Block attempt. A level of Heroic Parry used in this way does not also grant +1 OCV to the rerolled Block attempt. The rerolled Block attempt granted by this use of Heroic Parry is subject to all of the same modifiers as the original roll, including OCV bonuses from Heroic Parry that were previously expended for the original attempt. Each level of Heroic Parry is only usable once per day.)
5 Heroic Shifting: 5 (, a character with this ability is able to react incredibly fast to reposition themselves immediately before impact. Each level allows the character to move an attack that has hit them 1 position on the hit location chart. Each level is usable once per day as long as a character is conscious, not restrained, and aware of the attack. A character can use as many levels as they wish against an attack, from zero up to their current total.)

Professional Pool - Superskills (8/25)
1) Professional Edge: 2 (, a character with this ability can force a re-roll once per session per level per segment. This can affect one of their own rolls, or the roll of an opponent in the same scene that would negatively impact the character. Any kind of dice roll, including 3d6 resolutions, damage, and effect rolls can be selected. If an opponent being forced to re-roll also has a level of Professional Edge available, they can expend a level to cancel the affect and thus avoid having to re-roll.)

Amanda Knox Killer Shrike
Height:   5' 9" Hair:  Blonde
Weight:  135 lbs Eyes:  Blue
Amanda is a smoking hot, athletic and svelte blonde who favors tight body suits, straps and buckles, and matte black is her favorite color. She moves like a prowling tigress, sometimes slinking, other times pouncing, sometimes perfectly still before blurring into deadly action. She makes no attempt at blending in, and it probably wouldnt matter if she did as she is intrinsically attention grabbing. To those with Supernatural Awareness she has shows a rare attunement with the astrological sign of the Gemini, and her shifting aura gives a strong hint as to where her head is currently at and what sort of reaction one might expect of her; but to those lacking such awareness her behavior is quite inscrutable and volatile as she vascilates between her two polarities.
Amanda was raised on the road by her Hunter parents, Jules and Mandy Knox, who were big Hunters in the late 90's and oughts. Jules was killed in 2009, and Mandy exited the game and tried to dissuade Amanda from her interest in being a Hunter herself, but to no avail. Finally tiring of her mother's nagging Amanda left home at 17 and hooked up with a small team with members who had once worked with her parents. However, figuring out that the other Hunters were colluding to keep her on the edges of the action to "protect her", she bailed on that before turning 19 and bounced around doing freelance work across the western United States.

Unfortunately, she is not capable enough to work solo, and her personality makes it difficult for her to work with others so she has not yet found a permanent home. However, it is known that she is always eager for action and doesn't make any special demands as to payment, just taking a standard share of any Bounty collected, so she still gets calls from teams needing some extra firepower for one off jobs. This arrangement works out ok, but in a typical display of her contrariness despite her unsuitability for a team environment, owing to her misty childhood memories of when she was happiest, she desperately craves to find a tight knit group of fellow Hunters like the one her daddy and mother used to have.
Amanda Knox is an enigma; it would take a team of world class psychologists working together to form a theory about what precisely makes her tick, and she would disprove the theory within ten minutes of it being forwarded. She is mercurial to a pathological degree, and contrary even to the point of self-contradiction. But to paraphrase Walt Whitman, so what if she contradicts herself, for she contains multitudes.

She definitely has two polar opposite aspects to her personality, one of which is benign and engaging and enchanting with quirky and endearing qualities, and the other is venal short sighted selfish and cruel. She vascilates between the two seemingly at random (if necessary as driven by EGO checks vs Poor Impulse Control and Ambiguous Morality).

Rather than trying to head shrink her reasons, it is more pragmatic to observe the outcomes, and by all appearances she loves to Hunt and to put herself into situations of lethal violence, with an interest bordering on the obsessive. Her life expectancy is not high, but she is not the sort to tolerate the infirmities of old age anyway. She throws herself into danger with a gleeful exuberance that can best be described as a form of mania.
"You going to just stand there and watch me work, or are you going to make yourself useful?"
Amanda is a naturally gifted professional, difficult to come to grips with, and very accurate. She adds a strong tactical advantage to a Hunter team going after weaker and plentiful Supernatural opponents such as zombies, ghouls, boggans, or those that are guarded by mundane minions, and the like. However, she lacks the hitting power to hurt very tough Supernaturals and has few options in such situations.
Amanda is an effective Professional Hunter combatant, well rounded and skilled.
