Natural Armor Rating: Special, like a vampire, a werewolf is immune to virtually all weapon. This includes mega-damage energy weapons, explosives, bullets, fire, wood, poisons, and drugs. They are vulnerable to magic, magic items, and silver weapons. Weapons with 50% silver content inflict double their damage. Because Romulas has M.D.C. through martial arts, only mega damage silver and magic weapons will effect him. Powerful explosives or rail guns may stun or knock down a werewolf.

Background: Romulas was a cloning experiment by a Lord on Atlantis. The Lord wanted to see if he could clone a Were being using magic. Of hundreds of experiments, Romulas was the only success. He was named Romulas after the famous story of the founding of Rome involving the wolf mother. As soon as Romulas was a few years old, he began train in training with Sunaj as an Assassin. A strange event occurred and Romulas got rifted to a monastery in the Himalayan Mountains where Romulas trained in the Martial Arts. When he became an adult, he began traveling around the world. While traveling in Japan, he picked up the Samurai Rune Weapons. He picked up the Sunaj body armor fighting Sunaj in Africa. In North America he ran into a slaver barge and was able to capture an Altarain Talisman of Armor. He was back in China when he met Tarna. The two of them have had some horrible luck and have been Rifted several times.
