KILLING STROKE (Fists)

Once per scene, when you force an opponent to take a consequence, you can spend a fate point to increase the consequence’s severity (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. The GM may refuse the fate point if, for whatever unnatural reason, what you are fighting cannot be so affected.

Life Before the War

Born in Saint-Étienne, France, on 30 August 1912, Madeleine was the youngest of six children. In 1914, her family moved to New York City and settled in Queens. Shortly thereafter, her father, Charles Augustus Verret, returned to France, leaving her mother Ella Verret to raise the children.
In New York, she attended the North Queens Arts and Science School. At the age of 16, she ran away from home and worked as a nurse. With $200 that she had inherited from an aunt, she journeyed to Sydney, then London where she trained herself as a journalist. In the 1930s, she worked in Paris and later for Time Magazine as a European correspondent. She witnessed the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi movement and “saw roving Nazi gangs randomly beating Jewish men and women in the streets” of Vienna. She met and married Henri Moreau and had two children settling down in Paris. Both her and her husband joined the Resistance when the Nazis invaded.

Getting Noticed

When her underground network was betrayed, Moreau decided to flee Marseille with her family. They were captured and Madeleine endured torture and worse at the hands of the Gestapo. She never speaks of it although she is clearly haunted and has recurring nightmares. Her husband and children were executed before her eyes while she became the plaything of a deranged SS Officer. Madeleine was able to turn the tables on her captor and what she did to him is still spoken of in terrible whispers throughout the officer corp of the SS. She evaded the Gestapo carrying off countless missions gaining the title the “Velvet Assassin”.
Moreau became the Gestapo’s most wanted person, with a 5 million-franc price on her head. She was contacted the British Special Operations Executive, who had been impressed with her skill and tenacity, and they convinced her that she could not long continue to evade the Germans. She was smuggled to England and trained formally.
Allen Tremble, who also worked in the SOE, recalled her as “a real French bombshell. Tremendous vitality, flashing eyes. Everything she did, she did well.” Training reports recorded that she was “a very good and fast shot” and possessed excellent fieldcraft. She was noted to “put the men to shame by her indomitable spirit and strength of character.”
