If the power is granted (at the GM’s discretion), it is cast and used as normal. Any power with a duration lasts only its base duration and cannot be maintained.

Unarmored Warrior;
A hero or heroine with this Edge can make a free soak roll for each wounding attack as long as they are unarmored. To get the bonus, a character must have no torso armor on
(shields are allowed). If he wants, he can wear bracers, greaves or a helm, but these
are only cosmetic, granting no armor bonus. A hero can not have this Edge and
the Iron Jaw Edge.

Bio:

Grimjack was literally bred for the blood pits in the Kal-a-Nar Empire. His owners kept him in the kennels with some fighting dogs, and he would have to fight for his meals among them. Grimjack learned to be brutal and direct, if not very cunning. By the time Grimjack was three, he was already too big and strong for even the fighting dog pack to keep him in line, so his owners moved him out to the barn. From being treated like one of the fighting dogs, to being treated like one of the draft horses or oxen, Grimjack’s life was showing little to take solace in. The one thing he really had to look forward to was the time in the blood pits. Grimjack was usually slated to battle beasts, for entertainment of the masses, as he wasn’t considered cunning enough to merit bouts with other gladiators. Grimjack was forced to turn the mill wheel to earn any of his meals, and often was given menial feats of strength to impress the visitor of his owner’s home. At the age of five, an oxen calf was moved into Grimjack’s stall in the barn, and he was told that he had to lift the calf three times a day of he wanted more than grains for his meals. By the time he was ten, Grimjack could lift any of the oxen in the barn, and could hold up draft horses for shoeing. Grimjack’s size and strength started getting him more dangerous bouts in the pits, and one day he had to fight three bears while chained by the ankle to a post stuck into the ground. He uprooted the post, and swung the post on the chain to take down the three bears. After that bout, the owner of the pits bought Grimjack from his owners, and started teaching him wrestling. Grimjack started being used to train other gladiators and test them for aptitude for the shows, and in the process Grimjack picked up some basic hand to hand fighting skills.At the age of twelve, the Grey Rangers came and broke up the fighting pits in that border town, freeing the slaves from Kalinesh captivity. The ranger captain didn’t know that Grimjack was only twelve at the time, and took him into ranger training. Being treated kindly and not like a farm animal made a big impression on Grimjack, and sparked a loyalty to the Rangers. Now when Grimjack goes on missions with the Rangers, he tends to take on the biggest and strongest opponents, to keep his Ranger friends from danger. He especially goes out of his way to try and free slaves, especially the young, small and weak.
