New Power:

Absorb Skill (Robust, Useful Outside of Combat)

Brain Trust can absorb Skills memory and even the personality of a subject whom she is telepathically probing; the subjects come to no harm during the process. These personalities are permanently stored within her mind. Every time she absorbs a mind she must make a mental stability roll and hope to score a match. If she fails either her Mental Stability skill or her Cool stat is permanently reduced by 1, if her Cool should drop to zero she will become irretrievably insane. If she ever fails a normal Mental Stability check then one (or more) of her other personalities takes control of her body.

So far she has absorbed the personalities of Albert Einstein, Wernher von Braun, Edward Teller, Robert Oppenheimer, Jonas Salk, Dr Tachyon and her husband Congressman Henry van Renssaeler.
