Endurance Reserve. The cost of SPD takes into acount the bonus from the DEX. This write-up uses Champions 5th edition rules.
Psirens are a magical race of aquatic human hybrids created by the Lord of the Deep as minions. The horrible process which is used to create psirens usually drives the human insane and evil, but occasionally they retain some of their old humanity. Psirens resemble the mermaids of mythology, with a human upper body fused to the lower body of a fish or seal. Their human features are always beautiful.
Because of their lower body shape, psirens are slow to move on land, but very agile and quick swimmers. They can see in near perfect darkness, and because of their supernatural origin, do not need to eat, breath and are immune to cold. They have nasty claws which are almost undetectible when not in use. They are also master psychics with various powers to sense and control thoughts and emotions as well as create psychic weapons.
The majority of psirens are female, but males do exist. Most skills and occupational abilities are lost when someone is transformed into a psiren. They start as a fresh character and must learn a new occupation.
