Medical Expert. You can use Lore to make overcome rolls to begin the healing process for physical consequences. Once per session you can reduce someone else’s consequence by one level of severity (severe into moderate, moderate to mild, mild to nothing at all) by succeeding on an Lore roll with a difficulty of Fair (+2) for a mild consequence, Good (+3) for moderate, or Great (+4) for severe. You need to have access to the person you’re treating for at least half an hour in order for them to receive the benefits of this stunt. You can use it on yourself by increasing the difficulties by 2.
Specialist [Xenobiology]. Choose a field of specialization, such as xenobiology, criminology, or zoology. You get a +2 to all Lore rolls relating to that field of specialization.
Killing Stroke. Once per scene, when you force an opponent to take a consequence, you can spend a fate point to increase the severity of the consequence that he must take (so mild becomes moderate, moderate becomes severe). If your opponent was already going to take a severe consequence, he must either take a severe consequence and a second consequence or be taken out.
Terrifying Visage. Use Physique in place of Intimidation when you take on war form and wish to inspire dread or fear.

Hard to Take Seriously (in passive form)
Cute when fist encountered, the Val’kestor-logianne people are a race difficult for some to understand. They seem not to speak or even have mouths, as they gain nutrients much like plants. Some of them are natural telepaths, however, and act as bridges so that all members of their race can speak with each other.
On the other side of the coin, this race has evolved a formidable side to them. Likely evolved to ward off dangerous predators, they are capable rapidly reconfiguring their bodies into an intimidating and very combat-capable war form.
