2 levels, 1 point per level
not available to metamorphosis forms
The character has someone in his or her life who actively interferes with goal achievement on a regular basis. He or she could be a professional rival such as someone competing for the favor of the character's boss. The nemesis could also be personal, such as a criminal pursued by a detective who devotes his existence to putting the crook behind bars. The nemesis may even be a romantic rival such as someone chasing the same man or woman the character is pursuing. The nemesis should be someone who makes the character's life difficult frequently (and cannot be easily removed), but the nemesis does not need to be a normal enemy. It might be someone the character loves very much, but one whom they cannot avoid, such an overbearing parent who lives at home with the character or a nosy kid brother who follows the character no matter where he or she goes. In the event that there are multiple nemeses for a character, add 1 to the total point cost for each after the first one. The nemesis should be equivalent in power to the character at the time this defect is taken, and it should no longer apply if the character begins to outrank the nemesis significantly.
Level One: The nemesis is only a nuisance to the character.
Level Two: The nemesis is capable of harming, killing, or capturing the character.
