OOC: You've apparently missed the fact that he's wearing SAMAS powered armor? Dig up a copy of Rifts: Japan. Look on page 134. That, with the backpack, wings and thrusters removed, is what Justin is wearing. Then there's the fact that Justin is reasonably safe where he is, and floating him to the surface will endanger his life.
Justin will apply one of his dodge rolls to evading the crazy person's attack, assuming she gets through the mass of tentacles between him and her. If it fails, he'll use his strength to shatter the ice. If she keeps attacking, he'll return fire with his cannon.
Strike roll vs ice (if necessary): 12+10=22.
Damage vs ice (if necessary): 60 MDC kick
Strike roll vs crazy woman (if necessary): 14+16=30
Particle Beam Cannon damage roll vs crazy woman (if necessary): 40 MDC

Alex's perfect shot strikes the tentacle about mid-way down its length [Damage: 140MD!]. It literally severs the tentacle, the half with Lady Frost held fast falls to the ground with a loud "whumph!". The other half, spraying dark green blood all over the place, quickly retreats back to the pool. There is a screaming roar that shakes the cavern.
Victory seems near now as the other tentacles withdraw. The only problem seems to be Justin, who is now trapped as tons of tentacle rush into the pool pushing him down...
Without hesitating Frost dives under the water, swimming for Justin as fast as she's able. Once within sight of him, she lets loose with her power, attempting to create a bubble of ice under and around Justin to protect him from the nearby tentacles as well as providing him buoyancy to bring him back to the surface of the pool.
Having him drown because of her fairly disastrous attempt at attacking would not be a good end to the day.
