Explanation of the conversion: I bought all KITT's powers, movement and Strength at 0 Endurance cost, so he needs no Endurance. The Characteristics include bonuses for his Growth.

KITT is powerful but unskilled, depending on his DNPC for assistance in things like talking to people, filling his gas tank, and things like that. The Variable Power Pool is only capable of creating powers with Enhanced Senses and Images to hearing. Since Enhanced Senses are a special power, this requires permission from the Game Master.

History: KITT is the creation of the Foundation for Law and Government. Their plan was to team up an agent and their intelligent super car to take on criminals that operate above the law.

The Foundations' first creation was KARR, who malfunctioned, turned evil and had to be shut down. KITT was activated in 1982, their second attempt and was teamed up with Michael Knight. They served together successfully for several years, and even faced KARR once. KITT was mothballed when Michael retired in 1990.

Knight Industries 2000 The Foundation then attempted to recreate their success of Michael and KITT with the creation of KRO, who also malfunctioned and turned evil.

Because of the destruction caused by KRO the Foundation decided it was better to create a team of less powerful cars and human companions. In 1998 they created Team Knight Rider, comprised of the vehicles Dante, Domino, Beast, Kat and Plato. They served for about a year together, and even came up against KRO.

In the year 2000 the Foundation tried again to create a single super car, and built the Knight Industries 4000. While it was the most powerful car they had ever created, it lacked much of the compassion of KITT. It was then that they called Michael out of retirement to help get the Foundation a contract with California law enforcement. Michael insisted on working with KITT, and had the computer pulled out of mothballs and installed in his car. After that car's destruction Michael snuck in the Foundation building and installed KITTs CPU and memory into the Knight Industries 4000. After working their initial case together Michael retied and left KITT in the partnership of former police officer Shawn McCormick.

KITT in Hydroplane mode Powers: The Knight Industries 4000 is capable of cruising at over 270kph, and a maximum speed nearing 700kph. The molecularly bonded shell is nearly indestructible. It is capable of a turbo boost jump, can become nearly silent, and even operate on the water. It is equipped with an electronic scrambler capable of disabling most electronic equipment and a stunner capable knocking out humans (although it is somewhat unreliable). It is also equipped with a audio synthesizer which can create almost any sound.

Probably the most impressive ability the 4000 has is a sensor array capable of being adjusted to scan for almost anything. It can be used for applications like RADAR, thermal scans, a shotgun microphone and infrared vision. It can even monitor the heart rate and blood pressure of a target, or aid others in aiming weapons.
