Background/History: The Puma sisters are one of Masamune Shirow's more famous creations. A pair of virtually identical androids (or replicants), the exact details as to the sister's origins (such as to who made them and why) is never examined. The Puma sisters first appeared in Shirow's original Dominion manga, where they acted as the main muscle for Buaku's gang. They repeated this role in the first Dominion anime, supplying large amounts of heavy firepower. In Crusher Police Dominion the sisters are pretty much homeless, and live in a parking garage (although they still have access to guns). In Dominion: Conflict 1, the Puma sisters end up getting recruited into the Newport City Police department (a scary prospect to be sure), since, as androids, they are not considered legally responsible for their actions (a nice dodge if I ever saw one...).
Personality/Motivation: The Puma sister's disadvantages are pretty much self explanatory. Their unusual size and looks makes them pretty easy to spot. They are known criminals, and high on the Newport Tank Police's wanted list. Both of them are pretty proud of their artificial origins and don't take kindly to be referred to as robots, love dolls, or machines. They tend to be violent, and certainly enjoy using autofire weapons as a way of resolving almost any problem. One thing that should be made clear, however, is the two aren't what one could call a brain trust. At times they are significantly less than bright. For example in Dominion: Conflict 1, Uni talks about finding a nice room (complete with "sleeping bags") in the police station, where the two can stay the night (i.e. the morgue). In Dominion one them is terrified by her own shadow...
Powers/Tactics: The Puma sister's primary powers center around their android bodies. They are stronger, faster and tougher than everyone else in the series (so far). As androids, they don't age and don't get sick. A conversation between Leona and Anna in Dominion: Conflict 1 indicates that they have a built-in ballistic trajectory calculator and composite vision processors. Their other Talents were added since it seemed to make sense, considering their origins.
In the original Dominion anime, the Puma sisters were usually armed to the teeth, carrying a whole assortment of weapons. They seem to have a marked preference for autofire weapons, such as heavy assault rifles and grenades. The twins don't normally wear armor, counting on their dexterity and speed to keep them out of trouble. When they do, it is usually a sectional suit consisting of a breastplate, pauldrons, vambraces and greaves.
Before becoming freelance criminals, the Puma sisters used to be strippers. They are excellent dancers and have used their... uh... "talents" to escape from the police on at least one occasion. The rest of their skills are pretty standard for anyone who makes their living through violent crime.
There are several optional powers interested GMs could tack onto the pair. In the original Dominion manga, Anna gets her arm shot off, revealing a metal skeletal structure under the artificial flesh. Such an skeleton could be represented by increased Body (with the limitation "No Figured Characteristics") and PD, as well as Damage Reduction, Resistant, Physical, BODY Only (-1/2). The twins should also have "Does Not Bleed".
In Conflict One, Anna (and presumably Uni) can shrink down to about 3' high, resulting in a "super-deformed" looking Puma. Activating this Shrinking power results in a big explosion and a great deal of water being sprayed about, while returning to normal requires Anna to drink several gallons of water. This power is best represented by a Multiform, since shrunk Anna certainly didn't have the strength or agility of her taller form. Likely limitations include a single recoverable charge of several hours duration and Side Effects "Explosion". Obviously, this ability and the metal skeleton wouldn't work together.
Appearance: Anna and Uni are perfect twins, with no real way to tell them apart. The sisters are tall, very tall, standing well over 6' in height, with a well-muscled and broad shouldered build. A good estimate would place them at close to 6'3", considering how they tower over everyone in Dominion (including Captain Brenten). Their eyes may (or may not) be mismatched, with one blue and one green (it depends on which piece of artwork one looks at). If they are mismatched, it appears that the twins don't have the same mismatched eyes, either (i.e. if Uni's right eye is green and her left blue, then Anna's right is green and her left is blue). The sisters also have great mops of unkempt hair, thick enough to give them a virtual mane-like appearance and long enough to fall to their waists. This hair is usually a blondish color, although the twins have been known to dye it. Finally, as their name suggests, the Puma sisters have a pair of long, tapering catlike ears at the tops of their skulls.
