Aren't the physicals a bit high? He's got no magic and no ware to boost
them. Re: the body - no way is it 6. Arnie has a Body of 6 or 7. Jean
Claude van Damme and Sylvester Stallone have Body of 5 or 6. There's no
way that Mel Gibson would have Body of higher than 5. And I'd say 4,
myself.

Definitely Charisma 6. Sorry. ;)

Well, i think it wasn't vased on his physical size, more on the amount of
damage he takes. Size doesn't always matter you know!

Ah, but he had Pain Resistance 6 as an Edge. That means he doesn't need
the high body as well. It's a *nice* body (*grin*) but it's not that
huge or over-muscled.

How about a conversion for Raven? He would also be a physad in Shadowrun, a
ninja physad (with a body of 3 or 4).

CBS TV show, "Raven." About a man named Raven who was trained in Akido,
Jujistu(sp?), and Karate, and the Art of Stealth. He killed the "Jonin(?)" of
the
Black Dragons, a cult of Ninja.

He's been looking for his son through out the series. When he found him, the
series ended.

Raven is a physad. He's smart (Intelligence 5), Charismatic (Charisma 5),
Willfill (Willpower 4), and strong for his body type (Strength 5). However he's
quite fast (Speed 4) and has a normal body type (body 4). He'd also have full
essence (6), and a magic rating (6).

Skills included:
Unarmed Combat: 6
Sword: 5
Urban Tatics: 4
Drive Automobile: 5

Physad Powers:
Killing Hands (level 1)
Increased Reflexes (level 1)

Equipment:
Katana
Sport Utility Vehicle (Blazer)
Base of Operations (Safehouse in Hawaii, don't know which city).

I remember that show now, Didn't stay on very long.
I'd give him some extra dice in stealth and athletics as well.
