Distort Vision 8 Free Action No Me With this power your physical form distorts and you almost fade from view. Your precise location becomes extremely difficult to discern, and until the start of your next turn all attacks against you suffer a –30 penalty to hit. Characters with the Blind Fighting Talent only suffer a –10 penalty. A successful Challenging (+0) Psyniscience Test removes this penalty for the attacker. Sensory equipment based on standard optical sensors are fooled by this power; ones that read thermal patterns, use motion sensors, or rely on some other form of detection are not. Creatures and sensors that do not rely on sight are not affected by this power

Not your typical Astropath, per se, Elina is an Astropath. Born and raised on Elifar, she quickly was taught the structure and rigid training of an Imperium from an early age. Her parents, Letho and Elina, were both Imperial Guards stationed on Elifar and met in the program to become drill sergeants. Years later, when she was still relatively a newborn, and actually not even named yet, her parents were shipped off to a neighboring planet to help with an Ork invasion, as a sort of training mission for their respective squads. During the ensuing battles, Elina’s mother was captured, tortured and eventually killed. When Letho returned and heard of the news he was devastated and his hatred for Orks grew. He named their child Elina in respect and admiration for his soon departed.
He loved his child very much, but he was extra hard on her in hopes that she would be as strong as them and not meet the same fate. Letho taught her how to fight, how to carry orders, and how to protect those in your squad from a very early age with meticulous discipline. She was able to shoot weapons, but during skill tests, she showed to be very agile and excelled at staff and sword combat. Because of her agility, battle techniques like dodging came natural to her and offensive strikes looked like a dance as her agility allowed her to move with ease and in ways many hand to hand combatants were incapable of. She was also breed with the distinct hatred for Orks by her father, not only for the closeness and annoyances of neighboring planets and stories of their horrendous deeds, but also for the obvious fact that they denied Elina of her mothers love.
Elina was well on her way to be a ranking officer in the guard when it was discovered she had manifested other abilities. Not wanting to keep it a secret, Elina voluntarily submitted herself to one of the nearby Black Ships of the Adeptus Astra Telepathica who was out in this sector collecting newly discovered psykers. Based on her upbringing on this Fortress world, they trained her to be a battle psyker and she was able to use her powers in ways she could never imagine like being able to instantly conjure a deathly psy blade (first from left on image, with black color of third) that protruded from her left arm that was shaped with jagged edges and shining a blackness colour in a way to bring fear to her enemies.
Eventually her training was enhanced after she survived the soul binding process with the Emperor. Leaving her with sunken-empty eye sockets, which like all Astropaths, can still see perfectly, and also the loss of smell, she was now officially a sanctioned weapon for the Imperium in ways her father never imagined, who was relived and proud to hear she survived the process. Again, because of her fortitude and upbringing, she was selected to be an apprentice of another Astropath that was assigned to a Rogue Trader organization that was selected to scout and establish a new world. As with all things involved with the warp, a great storm came from nowhere and during the ensuing events, the Astropath she was to be the apprentice of, died.
Now, being the only Astropath and link to the outside world, and being recognized by the head Rogue Trader that she became a high commodity, Elina was put into stasis until desperately needed. Even though she was trained to follow orders without debate, the notion of being imprisoned did not take to her very well with this being the one personal stubbornness. After much verbal and physical resistance, she relented.
