The Whipper specializes in fighting multiple opponents at once. In combat she is a whirling cyclone of death and destruction, using her augmented reflexes to strike any and all available targets with every attack. Her ability to damage and disable any targets within range means she is most effective against a crowd, often keeping swarms of enemies at bay while her allies eliminate more strategically important foes.

More than any of the other Arkana, the Whipper was designed to relish in combat. A mix of neurological alteration and chemical reinforcement has led them to literally derive pleasure from the act of fighting. They will rush headlong into battle, against overwhelming odds, heedless of the risks to themselves or their allies. But while this enthusiasm does lead to a more effective soldier, it also carries potential risks; more than one Whipper has been lost by refusing to retreat, choosing instead to kill as many foes as possible before they’re overwhelmed.
The Melee Tracking module identifies and follows targets even when on the periphery of the Whipper’s normal vision, generating a three-dimensional map of her immediate surroundings. This creates the common impression that a Whipper can “see in every direction at once,” and allows her to effectively predict and strike targets in a full 360-degree range of attack. When combined with hyper-sensitive reflexes, increased fine motor control, and inhuman levels of artificial adrenaline, this makes the Whipper a devastating fighter even when completely surrounded.
Named after the Roman weapon used in capital punishment, the SM-15 Scourge is designed to inflict both pain and chaos amongst the Whipper’s enemies. It combines the range and flexibility of a whip with the deadly cutting edge of a blade, and allows a skilled user to engage an entire crowd of hostiles at once. For even greater versatility, the Scourge can be modified to incorporate superheated blades, stunning electricity, and a variety of debilitating poisons.
Though the Whipper is already deadly in a melee, the Athena Mech amplifies her strengths tenfold. Its elongated, serpentine arms grant unmatched range of motion, and the Athena’s energy lash demolishes anything in its path. Based off Narak technology, this fearsome weapon allows the Whipper to stun, burn, or immobilize anyone foolish enough stand against her.
