The Medusans were a telepathic non-corporeal race. Their thoughts were the most sublime in the galaxy; however, their physical appearance was exactly the opposite. Their appearance was so utterly hideous that the sight of a Medusan rendered any Human mad, and soon afterward caused death by massive organ failure. Vulcans were capable of viewing Medusans, but only with the use of a specially filtered visor. For these reasons, Medusans usually used an opaque carrier pod when interacting with other species. The Medusans were renowned for their navigational abilities.

New Traits

Amorphous (+1)

The creature can change shape and flow. This means that he can squeeze through tight spaces.

Energy Body (+0)

Medusans do not possess a physical form. They are purely creatures of energy.

Invulnerability (+6)

Medusans are immane to all forms of physical damage, radiation, temperature, vacuum, etc.

Inconceivable (-5)

Medusans possess the ‘Cthulhu Factor’: To see one will drive any non-energy being insane. The viewer must make a TN 12 Presence + Willpower test each round or suffer the loss of 1 point of Intellect. If Intellect reaches 0, the viewer goes permanently insane. The specifics will be up to the Narrator. Curing this insanity requires months – if not years – of therapy with a TN 12 to succeed. Without treatment the victim will waste away as they fail to eat, drink, etc.; death is the usual end.
