Being changed into her Were form improves her combat abilities, and as she has claws and teeth for close combat she is a master at unarmed.

Magic

Kerry is a Dark Mage, for her casting in daylight is difficult; due to the celestial lighting Modifiers once the suns up, her CC on many spells is reduced.
With the aid of a Darkness spell she should be able cast Healing, Blending, Walking Unseen or celestial counter spells during the day.
If she can get somewhere dark or shadowy Corascade/Shadow form (+28/14), Strenght of Darkness (+6),as well as 6 hours of Witchsight for those who can't see in the dark or invisable are also possibe.
Light or Dark sword (rk 6), Shadow/star wings (rk 7), Meteorite shower (rk 7), light/dark web (rk 6) and Blackfire (rk 6) are recent additions and better cast after dark.

She can talk to creatures of darkness (rk 20) at a clear and professional level.

Kerry has the talent Dark Vision (rk 20), which allows her to see up to 250ft in the dark; even in total darkness or and equal or lesser ranked Magical spell or effect she can still see.

Kerry can't DA with this vision there must still be some light for her to DA. however Kerry can Detect the Aura (rk 20) of most things as long as they are not in full sun light.

{Kerry is able to learn and casts both the light and dark versions of all celestial spells; but not the branch only ones}
