Supports are NPCs actively traveling with the party. While it's assumed that supports engage in combat efforts off-screen as well, Supports can also interact with combat.

Each encounter, the supports collectively roll initiative (that is, there is one initiative count for all supports). Each round, on the Supports initiative count, one support power will be activated.

In addition, each PC can "equip" one support, which gives a minor passive bonus for that PC. When a support is equipped by a character, that support's support power gains a special boost. Unless noted otherwise, the Equip Support Bonus does not stack if multiple PCs have the support equipped.
