Superbeings of Africa:
The Clockwork Goddess:
PL10/200pp. Not all superhumans have a "type" or "breed": in the whole world, there're 9 superhumans that're each utterly unique: in Africa, that is the Clockwork Goddess.
As previously described, the collective unconscious theorized by Carl Jung is very real in the Green Star universe...and the Clockwork Goddess is an entity from
there, bonded to a human host. Alien and embodying the concept of order, stability and precision, the Clockwork Entity 700 years ago bonded to a Zulu tribeswoman named Ngowy. Ngowy was radically transformed, but was not
possessed---rather, she and the Clockwork Entity became a single amalgam: the Clockwork Goddess!
Ngowy still lives, kept alive by the stabilizing essence of the Entity inside her. The Clockwork Goddess turned to living iron; her hair grew long and braided and was studded with razors; and she gained an utter immunity to damage. The Clockwork Goddess is indestructible to anything physically damaging---energy-attacks and mental effects still affect her.
The Clockwork Goddess roams alone, having lost her taste for mortal company...but only for now. Recent events may well bring her back to civilization...
The Clockwork Goddess wrote:"There is order within all things---even chaos!"
The Clockwork Goddess is a PL10/150pp mini-cosmic entity, hiding inside a human body... Her powers deal with melee combat and her utter immunity to anything the medieval world has to throw at her. (A Sherman tank, on the other hand, would be an ugly surprise for a time-traveling Clockwork Goddess!)
Less than a decade ago, a strange object was unburied in West Africa. Seemingly both a vase and
a hibernating living thing, the Mgowii tribe took to worshipping it. They sacrificed animals to the object, chanted "spells" over it and otherwise gave it praise. Then...12 days later...it woke up
Slithering out from the alien, desiccated shell were 22 gelatinous organisms. Variously colored in shades of neon, each creature bonded with a single Mgowii warrior, changing
them into Earthkings.
Earthkings are technically the organisms and not
their hosts, but in the end, such distinctions are pointless. The organisms may be "worn" (Alternate Form) or detached and sent on various tasks (Summon Minion). Each organism has specific abilities unique to it and it alone.
Furthermore, these organisms feed off of raw geokinetic energy to power their abilities---i.e., the raw lifeforce of the Earth. Every time they used their powers, Earthkings leeched life from the Earth, killing plants and animals around them.
Because of this, the other tribes turned on the Earthkings and drove them forth with fire---the only way available in medieval Africa to harm these beastmen. Now, deep in hiding in the Sahara Desert, the Earthkings plot their revenge.
Earthkings' powers are entirely biokinetic, involving things like adaptive shapeshifting, additional limbs, wings, gills and so on. Earthkings also tend to be much stronger than Starborn, in terms of PL and power points.
However...Earthkings cannot reproduce---the process of becoming Earthkings rendered them sterile. Furthermore, Earthkings still age as they normally will. One day, decades from now, the Earthkings will all die and fade from memory forever... And finally, fire is the grant bane of Earthkings, blazing through even the strongest of them with total ease. This means their durance in the Sahara is a miserable one, and only fuels their rage.

Superbeings of Asia:
Long ago, a Great Wanderer came to Earth and saw the primitive humanoids living little better than animals. Feeling sorrow in her heart, the Great Wanderer lay with human men and, over a single century, bore 11 hybrid children, each child containing a fragment of the Great Wanderer's immense psychic powers. Her task complete, the Great Wanderer returned to the stars, never to be heard of again.
These 11 hybrids themselves had children: a total of 311 of them, in total. Lesser than their parents, these 311 were closer to human than those who sired them. Furthermore, this 2nd generation discovered something wondrous: the key to immortality!...sort
of. You see, they learned how to separate consciousness from physicality at the moment of death and inhabit the bodies of newborn infants. Upon reaching 13 years of age, their powers would reawaken; at 15 years of age, their memories would return---and they would live anew.
Calling themselves bodhisattvas, these quasi-immortals easily outlived their much more powerful parents, who died over a century's time and never lived again. Over time, one bodhisattva---Siddhartha Gautema---founded the religion of Buddhism.
Bodhisattvas are, on average, weaker than Starborn, but they cannot be killed, not truly
killed---something even Michael Archangel cannot lay claim to!
Lemuria, the Lost Godcolony:
Reincarnating, psionic monks and would-be gods, the bodhisattvas have fallen far from their original function. "Bodhisattva," by the way, is an actual Buddhist term...
Long ago, the Green Star made its 2nd sweep of Earth, bombarding a small stretch of Mesopotamia. These ancient Starborn built a city---At-Lan-Tuu---and ruled it as living gods.
But calamity came to At-Lan-Tuu twice, and most of the ancient Starborn died. With one solitary exception, the surviving ancient Starbon fled to Tibet and sealed themselves into a vault known as Lemuria, to wait out the millennia. They had even brought Starbeasts with them as livestock.
While Lemuria was designed to be opened and closed at will, sabotage by dissidents led to Lemuria being irreversibly sealed. In order to survive, the Lemurians turned to cannibalism and inbreeding to perpetuate themselves. The lines separating Starbeast from Starborn blurred, until only degenerate hybrids---Morlocks---remained.
Two years ago, the Green Star's reappearance triggered a long-hidden sensor, opening Lemuria up for the first time in 3,000+ years. Hungry, deformed and monstrous, Lemuria's Morlocks look out on a world that is so profoundly alien to their own claustrophobic little microcosm. Soon, Tibet will learn of the Morlocks...and who knows what'll happen next!
