Rogues Gallery: Tech-Priestess Zara

Zara replaces Metweska in my campaign.  the reason for the swap is tech-priest Zara makes more sense.  The players had heard her speak via the hololithic messages a few times (and her access card) and an Iron God is about as close to the Machine God the Tech-Priests worship can get.  She was easily broth over to UNITY’s side.  Thematically, it fits better as well, as I had converted the Divinity to a Rogue Trader vessel.

Multiattack. Zara makes three attacks: one with her chainsaw, one with her tentacles, and one with High Voltage.

Shock Chainsaw. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach5 ft., one target.

Parry. Zara adds 3 to her AC against one melee attack that would hit her. To do so, Zara must see the.

Before Combat Zara activates both of her chainsaws before combat if she can—doing so may well alert the PCs to her presence in area D8 before they arrive.

During Combat Zara prefers to take full-attack actions with her chainsaws if possible, and closes to melee with foes as quickly as she can, trying to corner them so that any attempt to back off provokes attacks of opportunity. She focuses her attacks on lightly armored foes, knowing that it’s best to take out a party’s healer or magical support as soon as possible.

Morale Zara is loyal to Deacon Hope, but not a fanatic. If reduced to fewer than 40 hit points, she attempts to flee to the command deck; she knows of Ophelia, and if service to Deacon Hope becomes too perilous, she shifts her loyalty to the gargoyle. If you wish, you can have the PCs encounter her again on the command deck, at which point Zara flees again if reduced to fewer than 40 hit points. Whether she flees to Silver Mount to serve another powerful minion there or departs for points beyond is left to you.

Combat Gear inferno grenades (4); Other Gear +3 full plate, +1 chainsaw, +1 shock chainsaw, daggers (6), belt of mighty constitution +4

Once a dedicated follower of the God-Emperor she has fully given herself to Unity who she believes is the embodiment of the Omnisiah.
