Have you ever faced an asari commando unit before?

The asari commandos are one of the best trained special forces in the known universe. They are powerful asari biotics who form the elite of the asari military. Often in the maiden stages of their lives, they usually fight in small groups using guerrilla tactics. Commandos dress in distinctive brown uniforms and are usually armed with shotguns or assault rifles. They are considered amongst the finest individual warriors in the galaxy, comparable to Krogan Battlemasters. This is a characteristic of a foot soldier in the ranks of the asari special forces.

The main defensive Talent for Biotic Specialists is Barrier. With this skill a character can make one roll and if successful has the potential to negate damage. When activated roll your Barrier and Biotic. Note the total. When taking damage, the opponent rolls damage as normal and subtracts your roll for the Barrier Talent. Any remaining damage is rolled vs. the character's defense as normal. The Barrier protects the user from a 90 degree arc in front of him.

Warp is a biotic talent that lowers the armor on a target, increasing the damage the enemy takes. Roll Biotic and Warp versus the targets defense (for characters Strength, vehicles hull).

This Talent allows a character to violently toss one object or person into the air. If used against another character or their weapon the defense roll is that character's Strength.

If successful, the object or person is lifted to a height of D x 2 meters and floats there for the remainder of the round, falling back to the ground at the start of the next round. For every 5 points roll above the targets defense roll it floats in the air for an additional round. While floating a character must make a very difficult Dexterity test to do any actions.
