No. Wiki that explains them.

Ugh, I hate my imagination sometimes:

What if Pucelle really is the reincarnation of Joan of Arc... and Bravo is the reincarnation of Gilles de Rais.

Eeew.

We sort of have seen that before, with one of the spirits Heyoka channeled. And arguably with Cytherea, though she's not really seen as a fertility goddess as such...

I think there has been at least one other mentioned before, but I can't recall whom.

An Australian super team made up entirely of Sidhe, calling themselves Fair Dinkum :rolleyes: . I suspect Koala - sorry, Spider - would hate them passionately.

Bad idea: We already have scary-ass mage, scary-ass avatars out the whazoo, and scary-ass devisors, so why not a scary-ass manifestor?

Personally I like the idea where her weakness is when her projections dissipate, she get's all of what they saw as photographic memory, this unfortunately causes chronic migraines.
The summons themselves? based on her minions from a Tabletop RPG, likely based on the Emerald Legion from a game I played but... less nasty.
I mean the Emerald's had the Armager class superheavy assault bot and... Well if you know what a Hellbore is, picture a more practical version involving a magnetic klein bottle, a fusion reaction, and a rail gun.
Now give it four barrels to get around the horrendous overheating issue along with ferrofluid rails. Sure the projectile lasts maybe one tenth of a second before destabilizing in a 5-30 ton detonation (depending on reactor output)
But it also has damn near zero mass since it's a Helium-4 reaction. So it's going about 40% of c, and at that speed 1/10th of a second is very relative. It would destabilize from compression on contact with a solid object resulting in a cascade failure from said location- and that takes a little time, resulting in what is effectively a fusion-powered shaped charge.
So... Emerald is a bit OP (halfway between 40k and Starcraft tech level... We got creative.) So probably need to tone it down a bit since the assault transport carries 4 of the buggers along with 12 spider-tanks, 24 transports 6 gunships, and 547 assorted infantry.
And that's just the MK I's
The less said about the MK III on the better. (if it can be mistaken for Necron tech, it's not allowed)
A bit too over-powered but a fun idea.

Anomolocarus could be fun... not sure how it would work though.

How about a Manifestor-1 who never learned he could only make one type of stuff?

Well she isn't an Avatar, but there is a baby GOO centered around lust, does that count?
