Zan and Jayna, the Wonder Twins

Zan and Jayna

“Wonder Twin powers ACTIVATE!”

This is my take on the Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna. They were originally featured in the Super Friends cartoon. I used the True20 Adventure Roleplaying System for the write-ups and included the True20 Racial Background for the Tayfolk.

Zan can seem a bit cold to people especially if they are the victim of one
of his pranks. He is fiercely loyal to his sister and an ardent protector of
those less fortunate. He is confident in his abilities even though it seems
as if his sister is always pulling him out of harm’s way. As the older twin,
Zan feels he has to protect his sister, even though she is quite capable of
protecting herself.

Jayna is the more intellectual of the two twins given more to thinking
before acting. Sometimes this tends to become indecisiveness as she is
worried about making mistakes which could bring injury to her brother.
She chafes at Zan’s over-protectiveness, but knows he means well. She
is as loyal to her brother as he is to her, and would gladly give her own life
for his. Like her brother she too is a protector of the weak, but does not
rush into helping as boldly as does her brother.
Note: Jayna uses her core ability mainly to take other forms using the
Beast Shape power.
