Para-psychic is an entirely possible role for an FSB agent. They do have them.
The FSB's mandate is to deal with cults. The OIS's mandate is to deal with the supernatural. Unfortunately, if a cult gets enough power, it tends to invite the supernatural over for a cup of tea. (And the Special Service's mandate is to deal with 'This is way over your heads, because we said so.')
That's why the FSB tends to have mostly sensory para-psychics and investigative sorcerors on the payroll, while the OIS tends to snap up 'combat' para-psychics and sorcerors. (And the SS is almost entirely hard-hitting para-psychics and sorcerors). This is also why the OIS gets SPAT instead of SWAT.
I didnt mean to say that the FSB doesnt have paras, i know full well they do, hell thats half my character's backstory, how she went from a empath riding high on using her power to help people, to a virtual pariah when her second power eurpted and she got slapped with a Invasive tag. Then the FSB comes along and offers to make it go away if she works for them~
I meant more... it just seemed like alot of people were trying to reach for stuff we wouldnt normally have, or come from other places, and it was sparking alot of debate and fuss that simply wouldnt exist with a more modest character design. Its not a combat spec game, so it just seems like much ado for nothing. I will certainly appreciate having your cryokine around if things get hot (haw haw), but do you really need to stack freaky uzi-jitsu on top of it? Especially when you have to start twisting your assets into knots to get it. You may very well be the most powerful combat character in the group already if you develop your cyrokinesis, so why go through all the fuss to get another set of combat skills. Why not use the points to get assets or skills to diversify your character?
Thats just how it see it, i dont mean any offence, and im certainly not saying you cant. Its just that theres like a page or more debate on the subject, and as i understand the game, it largely boils down to pointless debate over pointless degrees of overkill. This isnt exalted, and i think we can safely assume that the GM isnt going to throw Hastur at us.
(and as a aside, you get a gold star for calling them Pyskers. *gives a eight pointed golden star*
