Practice of Sedition
In a world built upon a foundation of conflict, the past year has been notably violent. As Crux Fidelis, the Crusaders and ruling faction of Sium, suffer heavy losses from a particularly bloody Aphelion, other factions are emboldened to take action. Despite being allies, Weltschmerz's ambitious and duplicitous nature sees them taking bigger risks which threaten to break their alliance. All the while, Apocrypha continues to gain public sympathy and support while the Black Sun Cabal and Poena Damni continue to wreak havoc. As Sium races towards yet another conflict, it’s evident that a war lurks on the horizon.

weapons
Quarterstaff - a weapon created out of ash bark. Little more than just refined wood that Chaska wears at her back when she isn't using it as something to lean on.

"Chinese" Butterfly Swords - A pair of swords roughly the length of Chaska's forearms and of moderate width, accentuated with small cross-guards. Chaska wears them at her waist, and they serve for close combat. These swords are adept at controlling the movements of an opponents own weaponry.

Grenades - Just for added flair.
abilities
Probability Manipulation - Chaska is capable of changing the probability that an event will occur (or not occur) merely by wishing it to be so - to anything between 1% and 99%. Oddly, she actually isn't aware that she's capable of doing this - just thinks she's really lucky - while still being able to have the non-ironic thought, 'wow, I wish there was like, a 20% chance of that happening right now'. That being said, this change cannot be outside of reality. For example, if there's 4 aces in a deck of cards and 3 get destroyed, she cannot raise the probability that there will be 18 aces in the deck. Conversely, Chaska is exceptionally perceptive at knowing the already existing odds of things, and can give precise percentages without having to think about it. Do not play cards with her, she will win.

Enhanced Athleticism - Due to being a demon, Chaska is imbued with enhanced strength and speed. Her body is also able to withstand a sizable amount of punishment and abuse, including physical injury, but also things like a resistance to starvation and dehydration. While she has no healing ability, she does have a tendency to heal from wounds at a significantly faster rate than most mortals. Her reflexes are much faster than an ordinary human, and she's known to have a pretty intense startle reflex.

Explosive Touch - Chaska is capable of pouring volatile energy into any object or person*, effectively setting a bomb with her touch. At the moment of contact, she conscientiously decides how strong the bomb is, and what conditions must be met in order for it to go off. These conditions are very precise, and it's likely there are some bombs littered around Sium that just haven't gone off yet. Chaska can diffuse her bombs by touching them again - the only other options are to detonate it safely somehow, or drain all the energy from the object (there's probably a couple of bombs sitting around, still inactivated). Chaska is not immune to the impact of explosions, but does seem to have significant resistance to them. While unable to automatically disarm another person's bomb or explosive, Chaska is well-informed and knowledgeable in how to disarm conventional weapons.

Radiation Projection - Chaska is able to split certain atoms at the molecular level, cascading them into being unstable and creating gamma rays that permeate the skin. High doses can lead to radiation poisoning. This looks different depending on the victim, but can include nausea, diarrhea, headache, fever, poor nervous system functioning, hair loss, and internal or external hemorrhaging. Long-term effects can include cancers and other diseases. Those with regenerative magics, however, can most likely repair the damage done to their DNA over time so long as they can regenerate faster than the nuclei break down. Unlike naturally produced radiation, Chaska's particles are far more streamlined and produce an eerie glow with an effective width of 6 inches.

Flash Step - Chaska is capable of teleporting short distances instantaneously - generally nothing more than a few feet.
personality/fun facts
Wild. At least, if you were to describe her succinctly, which hardly does her great personality justice. Chaska loves fun and danger - anything that gets the adrenaline pumping and pushes her survival instincts to the edge. It seems as though nothing scares her, and she regards most situations with a complete disregard for danger. Chaska is the type of person who would make a great skydiving instructor - the type to fall out backwards with a loud 'woohoo' and a grin the size of Uranus.

...Chaska can appreciate a good butt joke.

Extremely sociable, Chaska can strike up a conversation with pretty much anybody, and knows how to balance speaking and listening. There's something about her amicable personality that makes people open up quickly, which is probably a mistake since she's pretty bad at keeping secrets. She's larger-than-life and people seem to have a need to be a part of that. It's also pretty difficult to make a personal enemy of Chaska, since she's just as fast to laugh at herself as she is anyone else.

A tomboy at heart, Chaska lives to get dirty - literally just covered in dirt. She has no qualms about rolling around in the mud for the fun of it, and loves playing stupid games that she makes up on the fly. Chaska is always up for an adventure, and never seems to get tired of being on the move and getting into trouble.

In addition to all of this, Chaska is scrappy. While she has other powers at her disposal, she truly prefers to just fisticuffs it out, and will probably offer to take you out to drinks after all is said and done. She enjoys loud places full of life and energy, and has no problem accepting a challenge even if she knows she's going to lose it. Chaska is pretty short-tempered, and has been known to completely yell her voice away on more than one occasion. Oddly, the topic that gets her fired up the fastest are questions or pokes about her sexuality. Chaska has been a self-proclaimed lesbian since being a young teenager, and deals with her attraction towards males by just fighting them until she feels better.

There's a lot of arm punches involved.

For all her fun-loving personality traits, Chaska can sink into seriousness pretty fast - particularly when someone is being mistreated (perhaps ironic since her favorite thing is blowing up buildings with...maybe people in them). She doesn't tolerate that bullshit and is fast to throw punches when it happens in front of her.

Chaska is the textbook definition of a rebel, and rebukes authority instinctively. She thinks of herself as a good person and does things because they seem right to do, not because of any rules or mandatory clauses printed in some imaginary book somewhere.
backstory
Chaska's history is a mystery for the most part. She began as a member of the Crux, and is confident that she had a bellicosa embedded in her eye socket. When she defected, the explosion caused some brain damage that compromised her memory, and she woke up in the care of Apocrypha. She's been with them ever since.
