Smell My Greatness!

"I am a biotic god! I think things -- and they happen. Fear me, lesser creatures, for I am biotics made flesh!"

This is Niftu Cal, a volus who is high as a kite on who-knows-what. He is less than half your height, clumsy as hell, and threatens anyone who approaches him.

"Yes, the asari injecting so many drugs into me was terrifying. But then I began to smell my greatness!"

Oh, I smell something, alright.

You can either let him throw himself into a battle where he gets killed almost instantly, or do the heroic thing and lightly tap him and knock him over. He is so shocked that he was defeated so easily that he realizes that he's actually exhausted, and leaves to take a nap.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the game, "biotics" are basically fancy telekinetic abilites. You can choose whether or not you want your character to have them. I always do, as flinging people back and forth and off of ledges using just your brain is way too much fun.

This guy was too much fun not to poke fun at, so I made a polish for him:

Biotic God, a sheer charcoal base loaded with light blue, darker blue, purple, and duochrome glass-flecks.

Two coats over WnW Black Creme.

I'm impressed with my camera's ability to take super-closeups. I'm not impressed by my photo-taking abilities, however. I must have taken over sixty photos and was able to use only three shots.

The purple shift in the flecks are camera shy, but they are very much there! I promise.

The best line in this scene by far comes from Thane. After you knock the poor volus over and he leaves to go to sleep, Thane turns and says:

"Sleep well. And dream of bulbous women."

It took me so much by surprise that I just lost it. I have only heard him say this once, but that was good enough for me.

Also, whenever anyone at home complains of nail polish smell when I'm frankening, I tell them that they are "smelling my greatness." They can handle it.

    That has got to be one of the funniest scenes in that game. I always have to knock him out because I can never kill him.

    I really like the glass-flecks; it's as if you took Ozotic 528, 529, & whatever else and added some black to it :D
