(Note the over-ear headphones and visor on her head.) There will likely be a resource mechanic that governs how many drones Efi can have running at once. “Robots can be messy… and expensive.” Efi may be a new support: “I want to create things that make our lives better… something that can keep us safe.” If the drones provide enhancement or protection to allied heroes, that would certainly match with the ...
