  1. Character Name: Bonfire Power Level: 9/10/11* Trade-Offs: None (PL9); -2 Attack/+2 Damage, -1 Defense/+1 Toughness (PL10); -3 Attack/+3 Damage, -2 Defense/+2 Toughness (PL11) Unspent Power Points: 13 *Bonfire’s PL depends on which of his 3 Alternate Forms he is using, the only thing that goes above caps otherwise are his skills In Brief: Charismatic guy with control over smoke and fire on his path to becoming an experienced hero Residence: 143 N Sentry Way, Riverside Base of Operations: 143 N Sentry Way, Riverside Catchphrase: Freedom’s HOTTEST Alternate Identity: Cassidy Bauer Identity: Secret, known to some Birthplace: Orange County, Vermont Occupation: PR Agent, Blogger, Freelance Photographer, Fulltime Hero Affiliations: None Family: Morris (Father, 55), Kimberlee (Mother, 51), Charlie (Older Sister, 24). A few more distant relatives, but no close ties to any of them. Description: Age: 20 (13th of June, 1997) Apparent Age: Early 20s Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5’10” Weight: 158 lbs Eyes: Red Hair: Red Power Descriptions: All of Bonfire’s powers are related to his ability to control, and turn into, smoke and/or fire, which in itself traces back to some degree of control over heat in general. His body is usually surrounded by a layer of dark smoke, with occasional sparks going off, which forms a shield against most attacks through intense heat. Bonfire has three forms of appearance: · In his “basic” look, he keeps his normal appearance (usually replacing his head with a cloud of smoke to serve as a mask). His body looks like that of anybody else. However, it, in reality actually is partially-to-fully made of smoke, just in such a way it is not obvious at first glance. Closer inspection will generally reveal some details being off, especially if there is any amount of wind. This form also makes it easier for him to dedicate resources to invisibility, as he does not have to focus on keeping up the form itself as much thanks to a lot of training. · Bonfire’s smoke form is his most recognizable one, and probably the one he spends the most time in. He does not have a look per se, instead simply appearing as a cloud of smoke. Occasionally, he will control his appearance to bring in some features, like a cartoony smile, but most of the time he simply looks like a featureless cloud. The exact shade of the smoke changes depending on a variety of circumstances. · The Fire-Form is similar to the Smoke Form in many ways. In this form, Bonfire just looks like a fairly large flame, flickering in the wind. He still has some amount of control over the appearance, and will occasionally show his head or limbs. While in either of his smoke-based Forms, Bonfire’s direct attacks generally are jets of incredibly hot smoke, shot directly from his body. While he can create smoke anywhere and then use it to create the jets, he has found that using it directly from his body leads to a better effect, and, if possible, does it that way. His fire-based attacks work in a similar way. In order to shoot off his fire-based projectiles, he actually splits off part of his body, and hurls them towards the enemy. For the explosions, he, usually from a distance, gathers the heat in the area (usually increased by previous attacks), and channels it into as small of an area as possible, before massively increasing it and letting it shoot back out in all directions. His other combat capabilities work in similar ways. He often uses a small cloud of smoke sent directly from his body to envelop an opponent’s head. From there, he increases the amount of smoke, in order to momentarily cut off said opponent’s air supply. He knows it’s not the most heroic thing, but it’s effective. Bonfire can use his powers to create fairly-realistic looking objects actually made purely of smoke. He uses this both to change his own appearance (and give himself clothes when walking around without powers), but also to create additional targets, or to trick people. He has also learned how to use his smoke to interact with the light in such a way he can hide himself, or others, behind the smoke, making them appear invisible. History: Cassidy Quinn Bauer was born as the second child to Morris and Kimberlee Bauer. There is not much to be said about his early life, it is as unspectacular as most people’s. He was somewhat popular at school, and finished highschool at age 17 with average grades. His life only started to become interesting when he moved out of Vermont, and to Freedom City, to get involved in a long-term series photography courses at FreeSA, only possible thanks to his father knowing one of FreeSA’s staff. Big city life brought out something in him. He liked the rural living, sure, but it was something about the big city that just helped him be who he was. He continued with his courses, finishing the full-time year-long course by the middle of 2015. All the while, he made all sorts of connections all around FC, mainly with other students of FSA, but also with some people he met through different activities, often political in nature. He was in Vermont during the time of the incursion, fortunately unaffected by everything that went down, even if some people he knew got injured during it. Shortly after he returned to Freedom City after the holidays, he simply woke up with his powers. As he writes on his blog “I just woke up one day and felt a lot hotter.” He imagines it may, in some way, be related to the death of his estranged uncle, which happened only weeks prior. While he started to use his powers almost immediately, it was at small scales, just some casual activity on the side. It was during March 2016 that Bonfire really appeared on the scene for the first time, after dealing with a hostage-taking from inside. Mainly because he was one of the hostages. It was during this event that he learned of his power to, quite literally, burst into flames. The experience of being a hostage changed him, and since he had nothing better to do at that time (his last contract had been terminated on short notice), he took up hero-work as a full-time occupation. Around this time, he also created his blog, “Freedom’s HOTTEST”, where he talks about his life, his work, writes after-action reports, and just is an internet personality. While it was a small thing at first, over time it grew bigger and bigger, with him amassing a significant fanbase. For a long time, the blog, as well as donations also were Bonfire’s main source of income, often just scraping by. It was in late April 2016 that Bonfire attracted (inter)national attention for the first time. It had not been what he’d expected, or hoped for, but “Bonfire, Superpowered Bio-terrorist”, had become a thing. He’d gotten in over his head, and as it turned out, accidentally shutting down the entire east coast’s power grid was frowned upon. (The alternative had been Freedom City: Nuclear Wasteland). While it helped his popularity in some circles, the mainstream did not approve. Neither did AEGIS. And while he was soon taken out of the headlines by the Biblical Plagues appearing all across the world, people would remember. AEGIS did, and it was only through some actions Bonfire avoided Blackstone, and instead got involved in a variety of legal processes, both against him, and supporting him. It did not stop Bonfire, however. After a short sabbatical, he returned. And he continued being active full-time, stopping many a crime, or just supporting local authorities. He was involved in some bigger happenings, even if most of what he did would never make it much further than his blog when it came to attention. Some things never even made it there, due to their nature. In Autumn 2016, Bonfire was asked to run a blog for Leviathan, an ally he’d worked with a few times. It was a small thing at first, helping the fellow hero gain some attention while keeping an air of mystery, but over time it evolved. Thanks to Bonfire’s fanbase, and thus his reach, he soon got requests by other heroes. This led to him forming Beacon LLC, a PR firm for heroes, by a hero, in early 2017. This new responsibility, as well as his photography courses starting again, meant that Bonfire was no longer as active as before. He still had his occasional adventure, and he kept posting on his blog, but things were slower than during 2016. It did, however, mean that he also had more money available, as he had a more steady income, and was not entirely reliant on his blog anymore. Money, which, amongst other things, went towards training. A gym membership, various online courses, some other things. And with a semester of courses finished, he once more had time to be more active. And while sitting around and writing blog entries all day was nice, he did miss the high-octane action. Personality & Motivation: Bonfire is an extrovert. He loves interacting with people, and if he is doing nothing else, he’ll probably be talking to strangers in the street. This is one of the ways he amasses contacts, by simply talking to people. He does his best to stay casual and carefree while working as a hero, but between everything that has happened over the last year, that has become more and more difficult. He finds himself being more careful about what he is doing, and less likely to just divulge information on his blog for the fun of it. He maintains some additional secrecy, even if he tries to get himself to not do so. Bonfire is a professional in some ways. Behaviour not necessarily being one of them. But his hero-work (in)directly is his main source of income, as it was his popularity that allowed him to open up a company. While he still does his blog-work, and it still is one of his big motivations, he himself will admit that with his additional work, he has neglected both his blog and his heroic activities somewhat, to the backlash of some fans. He tries to somehow make it work, but it’s not always easy. And in the end, Beacon is where the money’s at. Powers & Tactics: Bonfire’s powers change somewhat between his three forms. In his “subtlety” form, his combat strength is at its weakest, but it is the easiest form to maintain, and the one he spends most time in. He has also learned to interact with it in ways that allow him to use his light-reflection trick without concentrating on it. His smoke form is his general combat and travel form. It allows him to fly, and gives him more combat capabilities. While he technically knows how to use longer-range attacks, he has figured out that smoke works best when close to his body, and has spent a lot of time training his style around it, including a variety of short- to midrange attacks into it. The fire form is something he rarely uses. It is tiring, destructive, and has a bit of a mental effect when used. Nevertheless, when the situation calls for it, he will use it. With this form, range is not an issue, and neither is stopping power. It is both more – and less – mobile than his other forms. While he can fly at fast speeds, he can, even with the training he’s had, not properly control this flight. He has also found that this form gets the most mileage when not moving, as it allows him to focus all his body on the flames. Rounding off his skills is a wide amount of utility. From social skills to Infiltration and trickery, there are many ways he can get through a fight without directly fighting. Complications: Ouch, that burns: Bonfire is usually immune to his own powers. The emphasis being on usually. Sometimes, something will go wrong, and he’ll get cooked too. “Freedom’s HOTTEST”: Bonfire is THE Superhero Blogger. This means a variety of things. Not only is there a lot of easily accessible information on him, written by himself, but the name Bonfire is also better known than that of some less-public heroes. People can find all sorts of information on his blog, form his previous adventures, to fighting style, to habits and preferences. Even some of his enemies are named on the blog. It also means he’s somewhat (in)famous. “Freedom’s HOTTEST”, literally: Bonfire is constantly putting out superhuman amounts of heat, making him stand out like a flare on heat-vision. The heat is there at all times, and standing very close to him for a prolonged amount of time will also make it noticeable. Afraid of Swords: He can’t explain it, but being within reach of a sword freaks Bonfire out like nothing else. He knows that he can’t be hurt by them, but they still have a mental effect. And that means he might slip up… Singeing in the Rain: Bonfire absolutely despises rain and storms, and getting him to leave the house when the weather's bad is something that requires quite a lot of effort. This is because his powers barely, or don’t at all, work in bad weather, making him a liability in most cases, even if his social skills still allow him to do some things. Stealing the Show (it’s legal!): Bonfire’s both a show-off and a thrillseeker. He likes to have fun dealing with problems, which makes him clash both with himself and with others when he decides to not be effective. Part of this comes from him occasionally underestimating his opponent’s strengths. Still, when the situation calls for it he will (most of the time) be serious about it. Like a Bonfire: In order to always stay warm enough for all the smoke and fire he produces, Bonfire has to "consume" various burnable materials. Ranging from newspapers, to wood, to petroleum, and even just fire itself, whatever he can find at the moment that burns. Coffee also seems to work, somehow. He's not quite sure how long he could have his powers fully activated before running out of energy, and he's not that eager to figure it out. Isn’t that that Terrorist guy?: After his run-in with a nuclear science company, and him in turn causing every nuclear reactor along the east coast to go offline, Bonfire does no longer have the best reputation out there. Thanks to the fast-moving news of current times, most people will have forgotten, but there might be some, especially corporate types, that will remember, and see him as a threat. Connoisseur of Coffee: Bonfire loves Coffee, and his physique allows him to drink a lot of it. This, over a long amount of time, may have led to some unwanted effects, mainly the fact he now knows what a Caffeine Withdrawal feels like. And it’s something he’d love to avoid!

  2. Levity PL10(7 Caps) - Sailor

    Levity Power Level: PL 10 @ PL 7 Caps (150/150) Unspent Power Points: 0 Tradeoffs: None In Brief: Test Pilot hit by mysterious radiation beam gains the ability to show criminals the gravity of their situation. Catchphrases: "Never fear, rescue's near!", "Tally-ho!", "You really don't know the gravity of your situation, don't you?" Theme: "Sogno di Volare (Dream of Flight)" by Christopher Tin Alternate Identity: Anne "Silk" Mistral (Public) Birthplace: Oceanside, Emerald City, Oregon Residence: Oceanside, Emerald City, Oregon Base of Operations: Nolan Aeronautics Airfield Occupation: Test Pilot, Nolan Emergency Aid and Response Member Affiliations: Nolan Aeronautics, Nolan Emergency Aid and Response Family: David "Gale" Mistral (55, Father, Now the Ghostworks Supervillain "Heatseeker"), Jane "Sunshine" Mistral (56, Mother, Declared Deceased), Jaime "Puffy" Williams (25, Significant Other, Junior Testpilot) Description Age: 28 (August 12, 1991) Apparent Age: 28 Gender: Female Ethnicity: Human Caucasian Height: 5'7" Weight: 158 Lbs Eyes: Green Hair: Black Levity has a physique like she works out regularly with a defined form, her skin a pale peach. When in "costume" she wears an advanced version of the flightsuits Nolan Aeronautics pilots wear, that is blue in color, with the vest kit and backpack and flight harness a yellow color that is high visibility, with reflective tape on the life preserver collar. The flightsuit has a hood that she pulls up over her head before putting her helmet on, which has a couple reflective tape stripes. Her flight helmet is the same shade of blue, which connects to the suit's private life support. The helmet's faceplate is mostly transparent, in a greenish color with a slight glow from the HUD system built into it that displays the current oxygen level, current flight speed, any data from flying an aircraft, status of any survival equipment built into the suit, it's integrity, and the status of the communication system. When "out of costume", Anne wears a comfortable T-shirt, denim jeans, and well worn sneakers. When at work she either wears a Nolan Aeronautics blue business suit that has white trim, or a pair of coveralls (with break-away snaps so she can easily strip down and put on her flightsuit). History: Anne always wanted to be a pilot since she ever knew about the subject, like her parents - both of whom were her idols. Both were employed as Test Pilots as Nolan Aviation. Her father, David "Gale" Mistral suffered an Ejection-related back injury that put him on pain medications and in a desk job training new pilots, while her mother Jane "Sunshine" Mistral a couple years later was declared dead when she bailed out over the ocean and wasn't found due to her rescue beacon malfunctioning. These two events didn't really sway Anne at all from becoming a pilot at 18, showing great promise in the process. Later getting in under her Father's sponsorship as a test pilot trainee, moving through the competetive environment until getting into the coveted military development division. About a year ago, while on a "routine" test flight testing out Nolan Aeronautics' G11 VTOL engine, she was engulfed by a strange green light that knocked out her plane's flight systems and caused it to shut down losing control of it's dlight stabilization. She couldn't get it started again, and she was losing conciousness from G-forces as the plane started to lose enough flight speed to start to stall. She barely managed to eject over the Pacific miles off shore. When she was rescued she was floating in the water, under her chute, barely responsive. Blood trickling from her nose. While she was recovering at the hospital, strange things started happening... hovering over her bed, or causing objects to move erratically. Some of the brains at Nolan knew what was what... whatever zapped her plane, also caused subtle mutations, particularly ones that activated a dormant metahuman gene in her body. After getting out of the hospital, and showing off her flight powers to her friends at the airfield, Nolan Aeronautics gave her a proposition. Being a Superhero wasn't something Anne thought she would be doing, but with the training she would recieve and the patronage of NA, it would provide an interesting change of pace, between her test flights of course. It still puzzles her about her Father's recent disappearance, no one in the company would say what really happened to protect her father's pride: the gang at the airfield tried to give an intervention to him to try to help him with his addiction to painkillers, but he quit and stormed out... he hasn't been seen for the past 6 months. Personality & Motivation: Anne is your classic test pilot personality, a hair-thread balance of reckless abandon kept in check with a by the numbers discipline. She'll toss out a heat-seeker of a joke or pun when the mood could use it, and seems to always face a challenge with a smile. As Levity, she tones down the more Alpha-nature of the pilot in her, showing a youthful exuberance combined with a kind heart. Powers & Tactics: She generally prefers to engage the bandit at range, throwing out gravity pulses at her quarry, but if the dogfight closes to where she can clearly see the whites of their eyes, she is not above tripping them up with a wave of gravity or just kicking or punching them right in the face with a gravity chaser. If needed she can louse them up keeping them in spot as the gravity around them strengthens like they're the one pulling 9Gs. Power Descriptions: Levity's Gravity attacks have a visual warping effect, like looking into a funhouse mirror, this effect is also apparent behind her when she flies forward, but hovering not so much. Her flightsuit costume looks like it's made of a waterproof and rugged material, with smooth lines. Her flight harness and vest have a yellow color, with red beaded toggles for the life preserver and a hose in the middle of the vest that's connected to the life support unit on the vest on the side and a toggle for her parachute near her right shoulder next to the right breast of the life preserver unit. The parachute itself is flush against the back of her suit's vest section, allowing her to have it even in the cockpit of her plane as a spare chute, or use it on her own if necessary, made of a breakthrough memory film polymer. Her personal jet, the "Peregrine" is an advanced tactical fighter, sporting a blue airframe with flourescent yellow leading edges making it look very much like a prototype test plane. It uses a swept-wing design, with forward canards to assist in tight and agile turns, allowing the plane to get to where she needs to go. Complications: 9 to 5'er: Anne/Levity is an employee of Nolan Aeronautics. While Anne as Levity recieves patronage from NA, not to mention is part of Nolan Aeronautics' personal rescue unit, she has to be careful as her employment also as a test pilot could jeopardize lucrative contracts, grounding her, and potentially leaving her in the dog house or out on her face if she gets out of line. Household Name: Levity/Anne are now well known thanks to NA's PR division, and she's becoming a popular sight in Emerald City. Of course as a public figure, this can create it's own drama. "Lost engines! Bailing!": Levity/Anne takes a risk going at double movement or all-out movement as her flight power could quit on her. She's not quite gotten the hang of focussing her ability to control gravity to fly at greater speeds... or perhaps there is a limit... who knows, this is flying without a plane stuff still new to her. It can take quite a while (at least a day) for her to re-focus and get flying again. "Here I am savin' you again, Jaime.": Jaime "Puffy" Williams is Anne's wingman, a younger pilot, who is also a significant other. Her line of work as a Test Pilot can put her into danger, as well as get entangled with any intrigues in EC. Particularly to bait out Levity/Anne. "D... Dad? What did they do to you?": Anne's father David was dependent on pain medications which were addictive in nature, causing his mental state to degrade. That was when Ghostworks seeing his debts mount to shady dealers came to make a deal. They would cybernetically enhance him and repair his damage and cover his debts, as long as he'd work for them.

  3. Aviatrix Power Level: PL 10 using PL 7 Caps (150/150) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: +2 Defense / -2 Toughness In Brief: Test Pilot turned corporate backed Superheroine Catchphrase: Theme: Alternate Identity: Anne Mistral (Public) Nicknames: Annie, "Crow" (Former military callsign) Birthplace: South Emerald City, Oregon Residence: Oceanside, South Emerald City, Oregon Base of Operations: Oceanside/Nolan Aeronautics Airfield Occupation: Test Pilot/Anti-Corporate Espionage Affiliations: Nolan Aerospace Family: Janice Anne Mistral (Deceased), James Mistral (Deceased) Description: Age: 29 (DoB: 1988, January 8th) Apparent Age: 29 Gender: Female Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'7" Weight: 140 Eyes: Green Hair: Black Annie is a well in shape woman, short black hair, and green eyes. In civilian life she usually wears whatever is comfortable to her, generally a blue surplus jumpsuit from the Nolan Aeronautics hangar she works at with markings removed, or a T-shirt with some sort of aviation thing on it and blue jeans or shorts depending on the weather under a classic bomber jacket. Wears a classic motorcycle helmet with goggles when riding around on her motorcycle she restored from scratch with help from one of the mechanics at the hangars. As Aviatrix she wears a high-tech blue suit with orange accents and high-visibility yellow vest and markings. She has a hood she covers her head with before putting her helmet on, hooking up the air supply from the suit to the helmet. History: Anne had a rather boring childhood until her 10th year, while at a summer camp she had a strange moment at a Oregon summer camp's lake. She "sleep flew" over the lake, and when she woke up she fell in. At the time she wasn't the best of swimmer and luckily a counselor spotted her before she was in any danger. The trauma caused her to block out the incident, and the discovery of her powers. Her parents died when she was 12 in a car accident, although the reason behind the accident was a mystery to investigators. While living with her aunt she started on her path to become a pilot. Her Aunt was former Air Force, and helped her along the way, even helping her get her licence at 16, and getting her physically ready while Annie focussed on her studies so she could qualify for the officer's training she'd have to go through. Her time in the Air Force went from one of some roughly fitting into the military life, to becoming a star among pilots. She almost didn't get out of training after one accident, although her quick reflexes allowed her and her instructor to eject, although he broke his neck during the ejection. Something that has stuck with her in seeing. Once in actual service she served with distinction, assisting in defenses against various super-villains, sometimes getting shot down in the process. It was in defense against a Communion incursion in EC that she had her last ejection. By regs her fighter pilot career was over. It was either fixed wings with no ejection seats, or helicopters from here on. But due to her service she also qualified for a Honorible Discharge. She took the discharge, while she was still healthy. She showed her credentials to Nolan Aeronautics and was quickly recruited after health screenings to ensure her rough life as a pilot hadn't degraded her ability to be a test pilot. Seeing she was at the peak of health, she was fast-tracked through training, getting into a team of other new pilots. During the flight of one of the new pilots, someone Annie became quick friends with in a Jaime Calloway, a forgotten memory returned. As Jaime was testing a new engine in her aircraft there was a sudden, and catastrophic failure, Jaime ejected as per protocol, but her parachute didn't open properly when the seat fell free, causing her to spiral to her doom. But that was a doom denied. Annie blacked out standing on the observation ship. When she awoke she was floating next to Jaime in the water, freezing cold, but seeing her friend was quite alive and wondering just what Jaime did. When Annie saw the video of how she willed herself to pull on the damaged chute and serve as Jaime's new parachute, she was floored. When the investigation in the incident showed not only industrial sabotage, but that the person wanted to take Jaime out, Annie swore she'd get the guy back somehow. That was when Nolan Aeronautics made an offer. Jaime's combat training was still sharp and she was a natural investigator, with some polish and the use of a prototype flightsuit and gear, she could help the corporation in combatting future sabotage, that and a PR boon as a superheroine operating in Emerald City. They gave her the name of a previous high-flying heroine from the pulp age who fought evil wherever it lurked with help from Nolan Aeronautics... The Aviatrix. Where things went from here, was up to Annie. Personality & Motivation: Anne sees what she does isn't just a test of her ability, but also a duty which she is happy to fulfill as one of Emerald City's defenders. She's had a quick maturation from her competetive and wreckless days in the military, and her daredevil instincts as a test pilot before she gained her powers. She's careful, but willing to jump into danger when duty calls. The Daredevil in her has yet to be satiated. Powers & Tactics: Anne loves to use her flight to increase her mobility in combat, even if it means "skating" by keeping only an inch or so off the ground. Using her hovering stance, she can tumble and dance in combat, or become evasive and wiggle out of trouble, changing her body's position making it difficult to hit her. Though her military training in capture avoidance makes her prefer to engage in ranged combat, although she's capable of getting in close. Power Descriptions: Her suit is a well-engineered combat flightsuit, although it's cost and design disqualified it for use by the US military (AEGIS is still making it's decision), relegating it as a prototype to be considered for Nolan Test Pilots (to increase survivabiltiy of their investment), it's light and padded anti-ballistic materials allow her to take on most street-level thugs just fine, as well as provide life suppport. Her "sidearm" is a blaster weapon, one of a kind, that was designed as a sidearm for AEGIS pilots, able to convert from a blaster form into a night-stick like baton. She herself can alter her own personal gravitic field to fly, causing light to lens slightly behind her as she flies along. Complications: An In-House Cape: Annie as Aviatrix is jut as much an employee of Nolan Aeronautics as the other. So things like PR and job schedules do step in. "Nothing I haven't seen before.": Being former military, Aviatrix has a level of confidence that a civilian wouldn't. Although this can blind her to a potential problem when others would wisely consider caution. "I look out for my family!": Annie considers the test pilots and support crew in Nolan Aeronautics as her family, and if one gets into trouble Annie is sure to get involved, particularly her significant other and test pilot, Jaime "Silk" Calloway (it was how she got into this whole predicament in the first place!) "Crud! FLAMEOUT!": Sometimes Aviatrix's flight power will cut out. Since Annie developed her power well into her adulthood her brain as yet has to adapt to having powers. Which can cause awkward landings. She's dubbed these moments "flameouts".

  4. Professor Peculiar [PL10] Tipop

    Player Name: Tipop Character Name: Professor Peculiar Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: Melee attack at -4/+4, no trade-off for ranged attacks Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: A brilliant scientist from an alternate Earth dimension where their "science" is our "magic" and visa versa. An experienced dimension-traveler who has developed a soft spot for the weak and downtrodden. Has now chosen this Earth as his home. Residence: In an apartment above his magical bookstore-slash-library Base of Operations: Same Catchphrase: "By the Hoary Hosts of Hogg- ooh, is that saltwater taffy?" Alternate Identity: Edward Peck Identity: Public Birthplace: New London, California (Earth-333) Occupation: Book seller / librarian, professor of arcane studies Affiliations: (No idea) Family: While he has no family in this world, he comes from a large family on his home world. None of his family members are scientists, though most of them are intellectuals of one sort or another. Description: Age: Late 40s (born June 11, 1968) Apparent Age: Looks a bit older due to the bald head Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'-11" Weight: 160 lbs Eyes: Black Hair: Bald head, black van dyke beard graying at the edges The Professor generally wears his enchanted white lab coat (with runes woven into the edges), along with his mithril-laced rubber gloves and black boots. His eyes are almost always covered with his enchanted/prescription blast goggles, though he has regular glasses he can wear as well. Power Descriptions: In this world, Edward Peck is considered a sorcerer. His incantations are unusual, however, in that they are strange mathematical equations that make no sense. Where other sorcerers might call upon ancient entities and arcane forces, Edward refers to theorems by the great mathematicians of his home, Escher, Geiger, etc. Visually, his powers manifest as a weird warping of reality, of things not being quite what they appear to be. A typical damaging attack spell might cause the target to bend and twist as though viewed through a funhouse mirror, with a side effect of the ground bucking and waving like water. (These effects are reversible.) History: Edward Peck was born on Earth-333, a world where humanity developed magic rather than science. The concepts of cellular towers, electronic computers, and internal combustion engines would all sound crazy there. Technology has not progressed much beyond the plow. What we consider magic, they call science (which caused no end of linguistic confusion for Ed when he came to our world.) Edward was a renowned scientist back home, and won numerous awards and accolades from his peers. However, his experiments in dimensional travel — a forbidden field of study after the interdimensional wars of 1914 and 1939 — made him an outcast when he was discovered exchanging research with a fellow scientist from another world. Rather than be imprisoned, he fled his homeworld and began a career of exploration and learning. Despite the xenophobic teachings of his home world, Edward learned that most people throughout the multiverse were essentially the same. People were good and bad anywhere you go. He also discovered that the science of his home world made him a figure of considerable power in most places, and he learned to use that power to help other races and species wherever he could. He was not always successful. His efforts to help the rabbit-like inhabitants of Borough against the Warlord of the Nine Spheres ended with the near-annihilation of their species. Edward managed to escape with a few survivors, one of which is now his assistant/student (minion feat), Gingrin. He (and the surviving Borough-folk) have settled on our Earth for a variety of reasons. The Borough-folk have acclimated well, and due to their resemblance to anthropomorphic rabbits have found easy acceptance among humanity. Edward has taken on the role of protector of the people, using an alias "Professor Peculiar", as is the local custom. The fact that the consumption of sugary sweets are not only accepted but ENCOURAGED on this world is just icing on the cake (a phrase Edward loves.) Personality & Motivation: Edward Peck, a.k.a. Professor Peculiar, is something of a cross between Doctor Strange and the Doctor (of Doctor Who), with a sprinkling of mad scientist thrown in for flavor. He tries to present himself as a cold scientist, but in reality he adores children, sympathizes with the downtrodden, respects all life, and rails against cruelty and selfishness. Powers & Tactics: His Coat of Aeromancy (a magic lab coat) provides him with levitation and protection. The coat is sentient, and is capable of independent action, but the Professor loses the protection of the coat when this happens. His Eldritch Blast Goggles offer him a variety of magical senses, and have corrective lenses for his poor vision. His Spells are an array of typical magical abilities. Complications: Square Root of Abra Cadabra: To cast his spells, Professor Peculiar needs his hands free and must recite the proper mathematical formulae. If he is restrained and/or unable to speak, he cannot cast spells. (Power Loss complication) The Amazing Mister Magoo: The Professor has extremely poor eyesight without prescription lenses. (Disability complication) Is That Saltwater Taffy?: The Professor is addicted to candy. In the world he comes from there is a social stigma associated with eating sweets — it's considered deviant behavior. That's one of the reasons he's chosen our Earth as his new home. They're so delightfully perverted here they even let CHILDREN eat candy! (Addiction complication) Wascally Wabbit: The Professor has an assistant-slash-apprentice named Gingrin, one of the rabbit-like Borough-folk he rescued from the Warlord of the Nine Spheres. Gingrin lost his home, his wife, and his children, and the Professor feels responsible for it all. Despite their master/apprentice relationship, he would die to protect Gingrin.

  5. Salvo (PL 10)- Zeitgeist Blue

    Salvo Player Name: Zeitgeist Blue Character Name: Salvo Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: -5 Attack / +5 Damage, -5 Defense / +5 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Last member of a fallen house who refuses her family's legacy and seeks to make amends. Residence: Apartment at Riverside, Downtown Freedom City Base of Operations: Claremont Academy Catchphrase: "Locked on... And firing." Alternate Identity: Nicole Whitfield-Hall Identity: Secret Birthplace: CA, USA Occupation: Student Affiliations: Claremont Academy, Whitfield Family: Arthur Whitfield (Father), Amelie Hall (Mother), James Whitfield-Hall (Brother), Lauren Whitfield-Hall (Sister), Gregory Whitfield-Hall (Brother), Belle Whitfield-Hall (Sister) Description: Age: 18 (March 13, 1998) Gender: Female Ethnicity: Mixed (African-Canadian, Caucasian) Height: 5'8" (without armor); 6'1" (with armor) Weight: 125 lbs Eyes: Brown Hair: Black Power Descriptions: While Nicole is innately attuned to magical energies, it is her battle armor, Bellios, which allows her to focus those energies into the powers she uses as a superhero. Once an old and storied magical heirloom, her work on the armor has made it something more, creating within its essence a platform that applies both centuries of tradition and cutting-edge methodologies integrated in a dialectic unity. Bellios usually manifests her powers in set systems with a technological bent, as befitting her leanings. Yet it is a thing as much of magic as the material world. Intersecting rune arrays tun electrical currents through chiseled patterns in the armor plates. Targeting spirits line up her Gatling guns and missile batteries as a handcrafted dimension, metaphysically tuned and coupled to Bellios, feeds alchemically-imbued ammunition to sate its voracious appetite for firepower. History: Seek Knowledge. Wield Power. Those were the words Nicole lived by most of her life. It was the words the Whitfield family has lived by and died for for hundreds of years, since the first Whitfields arrived in the Americas to gamble their fortune as plantation owners, since even before then as they lived like nobles in the Old World. These words were writ in gold-plated letters above every door and fireplace in the Whitfield grounds, so that each member of the family may remember the reason for their existence. The Whitfields were many and spread across the world, as befitting a venerable and wealthy family, but those Whitfields who called California their home were those who could trace their ancestry straight and true. The purest and oldest. The heirs of a legacy that was yet to come. It was this life and lineage, which Nicole was birthed to, third eldest among five siblings. As a younger sibling, she was not expected to inherit much and neither was much expected from her. She was left to her own devices, made busy with everything old money could buy. Servants in livery, the most expensive toys and gadgets, the richest food served in multiple course meals, yet she felt little, if any, parental love as a young child. She wandered the halls of the mansion alone, a small child who barely reached the waist of any adult, under the paintings of her ancestors, their eyes watchful and austere in the low light. Her parents were much too busy to take time off for her, always managing their holdings and grooming James, her eldest sibling when they were not travelling or locked inside their individual studies. Lauren, her older sister was sent to study in boarding school before Nicole could remember, and at the times the two met, they were even more distant to each other than she and James. Perhaps then, this would have been a sad life, a childhood with little friends and love, but her personal caretaker took a liking for the young Whitfield, and it was from there that Nicole had experienced a semblance of warmth from another. Elizabeth Leon, her caretaker, took her under her wing, and began to go above and beyond the duties of a servant of Whitfield in attending to her charge’s needs. She was there whenever Nicole needed her - as her only playmate in games of tea or house, or as a shoulder to cry on when either Father or Mother scolded her childish antics. It was the first time someone truly saw Nicole as more than just a valuable asset to the family. Elizabeth listened to her, and she in turn listened. She learned of her caretaker's family, of Elizabeth's three daughters, the youngest who was her age, and of her husband who was struggling with depression. Elizabeth's bedtime stories were not fairy tales, or fanciful adventure stories. They were of the ordinary, the mundane somehow made wonderful, for it was another world for Nicole. Years passed and Nicole would grow to adolescence, soon sharing the mansion with two younger siblings, Gregory and Belle, yet like her older siblings spent less and less time with them as she grew older and was sent to an English boarding school. It was also during this time that she drew her parents’ interest. She was a genius among a family which prided itself on producing geniuses, and her intelligence was obvious for anyone with eyes to see. She soaked up information like a sponge and understood lectures meant for students a decade her senior, the many lonely hours she spent pouring over her family library now had paid off, and she had not stopped. Time and time again a servant or janitor would spy the library doors ajar, faint lights open in hours that ghosts roamed awake. They were how she spent her idle time when not with Elizabeth or playing with Gregory and Belle, and neither did she feel a recluse in boarding school, not as much as she did within the Whitfield grounds. There she had other girls to gossip with, cute boys to sneak glances to, teachers to mock behind their backs. She just tended to develop a fixation for a problem she couldn't solve, or a theory that had caught her interest, and either would occupy the back of her mind, maddening and lingering, until she'd spend hours or days searching and solving, and trying and asking, until she could confidently say she knew all there was worth knowing about that topic. Only then could she dismiss those thoughts that gripped her. It was there that she came to love the wonders of the modern world, how intricate and detailed and interconnected everything was, if only people could see it. Physics led to engineering led to technology led to mathematics led to-- ad infinitum. She was fifteen when she was summoned to the Whitfield mansion. She remembers, like all things, it was the middle of autumn and school was in full swing, yet she received a phone call. She was to drop all that she was doing and arrive at a earliest date, and she acqueised. A private jet was already waiting for her the same day she had received the call and she flew half the world to California. She was not the only one to be called. Her older brother and sister had already arrived, as had a dozen of her blood relations. The next few days saw a few dozen more arrive - cousins, and Aunts and Uncles - if she was to be technical. Almost every Whitfield of any worth gathered for the first time within a 20-acre estate. It was unprecedented, and a little daunting for Nicole, even as Elizabeth and Belle greeted her home. Gregory had stayed in his boarding school in France. All of the Whitfields gathered within a vast chamber buried in the underground vaults of the mansion, and all the servants and retinues barred from entry. They were in the center of the estate, ley lines tracing energies where beats its magical heart, and patterns upon patterns of arcane sigils and stones dotted the walls, lights tracing paths safe to tread, the family's scrolls and tomes arranged orderly rows. Clearly, this ritual had anticipated for some time, and prepared for with a meticulous patience Nicole knew her parents possessed in abundance. She read what she knew, for she was not yet a full-blooded mage, could make only guesswork as to the reasons for trappings older than her grandparents, but what she saw indicated a technique that would converge every type of magic and energy present into the one point of chamber. A melding of sorts made larger than life for all those attending now as while they were all of the name Whitfield, and all knew the alchemical arts that so defined the family, decades and centuries had diversified their skills to the point of a sensory jumble. Like crossing a street in Los Angeles and picking out people of different ethnicities. Too many that it gets confusing, yet still holding many underlying characteristics in common. They began. The lights were shut off, a candle in the center of the congregation. Nicole could just make out her father, mother, then James and Lauren standing at intervals apart. Young Belle then, was not to be a part of their destiny. First, there was chanting, occult languages in different tongues reverberating through the walls and melding into one sonorous note. She does not know how long they had stayed there. She does not remember, she would admit uneasily, what had transpired in the darkness, amid hooded figures, and whispering fell things. The candle had guttered into a cold flicker, and a cackling, wet and heavy and inside. Her arms burned, and her throat cracked with smoke. She hurt all over but her legs, and when she awoke, barely aware, the chamber was on fire and Elizabeth was carrying Nicole in her arms, a bag stuffed with scrolls strapped on her shoulders. They ran from the chamber, out the basement and the mansion as everything burned. Nicole watched the mansion crumble in flames. Her legs refuse and Elizabeth carried her to the waiting paramedics, and she decided she was dreaming. The authorities would say it was a stray spark that started the fire. An unfortunate series of events led to this tragedy, the official statement would read, leading to 43 deaths, mostly from suffocation and localized within the chamber, except for one teenager that was rescued by a heroic maid. They applauded Elizabeth and shifted through the rubble, looking for survivors. They did not find Belle. Gregory would go missing shortly thereafter. She worried about Gregory and went into mourning, for Belle most of all. She was released from the hospital, a certified paraplegic, to Elizabeth and her family in the meantime, who were her legal guardians now. She saved what she could from the remains of her family's capital. The vultures had picked at everything long before she left the hospital. Through means legal and not so legal, her family's once vast fortune had dwindled, taken by rivals, and those seeking revenge or restitution. And perhaps it was for the best. She had canceled her boarding school. There was an itch her brain could not scratch, and a hunch told her she would find her answers by staying. She soon discovered a side of her family that sickened her. They were corrupt, and perhaps that was not a revelation with how rich they were, but in their dealings lives were lost and ruined with the act of a single handshake, and people killed from one spoken word of her parents. She dug into the books, into the diaries and records saved from the fire. She talked to the lawyers and phoned business partners overseas. The Californian Whitfields had its hand in every pie in the city, state, and a significant number in the country and beyond. Oil spill cover ups, land siezures from the poor, money laundering, arms trafficking, financing the local Mafia, and shaking hands with Mexican cartels. The Whitfields were far worse among the magical community, yet just as insidious, where an overarching authority non-existent. It was a headache to have it all revealed and heaped upon her in a short time, and she cut every connection she could and gave all she could to the authorities. As the only Whitfield left, she had that right, even if many of her family's erstwhile partners did not see it her way. She walked -- rolled rather -- the streets now, instead of the halls of a mansion or an elite boarding school in a far-off country. They were concrete and now, and she couldn't ignore what was in front of her, even as her magic began to die a slow death for no discernible reason. Seek Knowledge. Wield Power. Her family had its reasons for everything they've done, excuses more like. But it was something to say to let them sleep at night, and she couldn't say they were deluded. Not when those reasons almost felt right, like this was just the natural state of the world. The strong prey on the weak. Predators eat. Prey flee. Humans fought wars and died and gave birth. And Whitfields learned and gathered. She woke up one night as she felt eyes watching her. Bellios stood at the foot of her bed, unscathed. Her powers were all but dead by then, and when she had attempted to wear the armor, the recurring psychic backlash left her sick and vomiting food for a week. By the coaxing of Elizabeth, she decided to fly to Freedom City and resume her schooling. She was frustrated and without hope, disgusted by her family's activities - a useless feeling, lugging an armor that did nothing but make her ill. Still, perhaps she could find a solution in the city of heroes and start anew, far away from the death of her family and the toxic they left. So she transferred half the money she had inherited with Elizabeth and her family, as much as it was a pittance compared to what her family once held, it was a large sum for them and it felt like the right thing to do to thank them for everything. She flew out the next day. She was eligible for Claremont, if just barely, and wasn't that cute. For two years she was the most useless student to grace its halls. Stuck in a wheelchair and magic that fizzled pathetically, if she could even get it to work, she would have been kicked out if it weren't for her intelligence and ability to create tech and mystical devices. She brought with her the family scrolls, even if she could recall their contents easily enough, and could call on mystical energies that did not originate from within. Magic rituals and petty concoctions, she knew how to make them. Electronic riff-raff that would not have been out of place in a gadgeteer's arsenal. All the while the familiar presence lay heavy upon her mind. It was the strongest pull she had ever, and it was directed in its entriety to Bellios. She let herself fall into that obsession, working for two years upon that construct of ancient arcana. She learned so much more than she would within the confines of a classroom, or the laughable practicums the teachers would give to her. She dreamed of bolts and runes, and incantations and coding. And when she was not buried within Bellios, within the confines of her work, she was formulating ways to improve it, to create more energy, more power, because it hungered. For two years, barely anyone outside her scheduled classes saw her. During class, her presence was almost non-existent, her output just enough to pass. But just before the graduation she rose from her fugue, as if she had fallen asleep or into a coma and had only woke up, though she remembered everything as clear as day. Groggy, head aching, her insides feeling like jelly, she looked up to take in her work. And it was beautiful. Personality & Motivations Nicole is, if anything, inclined to extremes. When something deemed important should done, then it should be done to the fullest of one's abilities or not at all. She is analytical, perhaps a bit too cerebral at times, but mostly means well, especially regarding the well-being of those she meets. She tries to be friendly, taking the time to engage in small talk and get to know people before making judgments about them. In a similar manner, she prefers to have all the facts before committing on a plan of action. This does mean she is prone to taking too much time when presented with an abundance of information, perhaps even contradictory reports, until someone pushes her to act. Perhaps as a way to atone for her family's wrongdoing, she has chosen to bear the mantle of a superhero, opposing those her parents would have gladly drink wine with. They were failures, she'd be quick to admit, but she won't be like them. And like everything worth doing, she has taken no half-measures. Powers & Tactics: Though not trained or experienced in fighting, Nicole's common sense lets her understand to fight where she is strong and her foes are not. She prefers to keep her distance, flying and invisible as she overwhelms her opponents through judicious use of firepower. When hemmed in or grounded, she will attempt to cut her way free from the fighting, blasting her way out. Her arsenal also heightens her senses, encompassing machines and magic, which she can use to observe her opponents and perform reconnaissance undetected until she wishes to reveal her presence, usually through an opening salvo. Complications: A Parallel Path: Aside from her studies in Claremont Academy, the looming graduation and all that entails, and her nighttime superheroing as Salvo, Nicole still needs to find time as an intern in Archetech, providing quality yet affordable technology and energy to the less affluent locals of Freedom City. It's given her another purpose to work towards, and she takes this as a personal task, small a help as it is. She's met several people because of this, both from Archetech and Freedom City, but it does mean she's starting to see that part of the city as her turf, in addition to the magical hotspots. Sense of responsibility included. She will go out of her way for these people and places, more so than usual, even if she will not admit so. (Responsibility) Collateral Damage: Like it says on the tin: collateral damage. Turns out, holding the trigger of two fusion autocannons spinning at 3,000 rounds per minute each and firing super-heated metals in the city, or anywhere with infrastructure, isn't the smartest idea. Who knew? Nicole does, intellectually, but in the heat of battle there isn't time to think; only the surge of adrenaline and energy blasts flying. It's unfortunate, but damage does happen, especially when she pushes the suit to its full potential. Needless to say, there are consequences when this happens, even if she wins the fight. (Accident). Father Dearest: Her father isn't the nicest of people and just when Nicole had thought she had gotten rid of him, his ghost, or at least a very convincing simulacrum of it, has inhabited Bellios as its machine spirit. She has tried to get rid of it, but he unfortunately seems to be staying as an unwanted but essential component. Thankfully, he does seem more agreeable, seeing as she is his only heir. And while he wishes to see her alive and well, he cares not one whit for anyone not a Whitfield. This has sometimes resulted in a struggle between parent and child when their objectives conflict with each other, usually pitting risk anfthe acquisition of artifacts against her responsibility as a superhero (one other thing he cares little about). But his long term goals, if he even has one, are still a mystery. Of course, in a contest between man and spirit, more often than not, it is not often clear who will win. It Hungers for War: Bellios is first and foremost a machine of war. Its pistons hum in anticipation of battle, and the monistic links blur the line between wearer and suit. When Nicole rages, it responds with greater power. When Bellios rages, she responds by pushing it to its limits. Additionally, it is very susceptible to the appearance of the Fae. A whiff of emission from those foul beings causes in it a single-minded bloodlust. Luckily, these episodes have been rare, but less extreme emotions do sometimes bleed off, turning the well-thought out into just plain compulsive. Man and Machine: When Nicole enters Bellios she becomes more than human, and more than just an amalgam of steel and flesh. They become one, in all definitions of the word. The world outside sees one being and acts accordingly; any power that would have effected either her, as a mere human sorcerer, or the techno-magics enmeshed into Bellios would affect the whole that Salvo has become. To be able to process this, Nicole's mind translates the changes into a reality she could comprehend, creating a HUD and "eyes" to see from her helmet. Anything that would blind her, or interfer with the magic and electronics in the armor, would scramble that visual interface and all essential information arrayed within it . Something in the Dark: Many small things go Nicole's way at just the right time, and just the right way, to make her life easier. In much the same way, she finds herself in situations that would seem contrived in any book or movie, yet leading to additional difficulties she must overcome. While these minor coincidences are merely irritating or helpful during her everyday, they are more disastrous during a serious superhero mission. There is a crawling, nagging feeling of being watched whenever they happen, though even her armor's sensors can find no trace, magical or otherwise, to confirm her suspicions. The Gift of Blood: Family legend traces their line stretches back to the age of Christian Rome, during the first centuries of the first millennium. During that time, the pope decreed the library destroyed. Unable to bear such wanton waste of knowledge, her ancestor had made a pact with an agent of a powerful being from another world. He would be given the ability to save the contents of the library, but he and his offspring must bear a price (or a blessing as the official version states), and a destiny to be fulfilled long after his death. Whatever the truth is, Nicole and those of her blood possess, without fail, a compulsion. Knowledge, especially forbidden knowledge, is the sweetest water, and she occasionally finds herself using her powers to fulfill her family's quest. While non of her episodes have reached the two years working on Bellios, many smaller episodes are still smaller occurences, particularly during her heightened magical state while using her armor. Nicole's obsession has her pursue information above all else, usually by absent-mindedly hacking into databases when she is in the suit, though there are many other ways she may go about this. These seem like good ideas at the time, but done at the wrong time, and with the wrong systems, and a slip-up may land her in serious trouble. (Obsession) The Sins of Family: Ever since finding out about her family's unsavory secrets, Nicole has endeavored to do good where they would do wrong. Still, there are those who see her as nothing more than the last Whitfield or a foolish girl. Most see her as no better than those bearing the same name. Yet some would go out of their way to rid her for revenge or opportunity. While there are enough in the mundane world, it is the magical community who has suffered the most from her family's excesses. As few and isolated as they are, they have long memories. And many ways to trace magic signatures. Whitfields and Halls, they say, are particularly distinct. (Enemy and Reputation) This Magic of Mine: Her magic isn't so hot when outside Bellios, understatement of the year, but her armor does act as a focus for her magic, heightening it into a weapon of mass destruction. While most of her inner energy transfers seamlessly into its various systems, a leak is unavoidable sometimes, and a once controllable yet feeble magic turns uncontrollable and potent; a combination that's often bad news. Though she may choose to hold it inside for a time, risking her magic's side-effects, she must eventually discharge the surge of power. A badly-timed spike, or an unwanted manifestation of that magic, could turn the tables very quickly. Not always for the better.

  6. Lady Lincoln - (10PL) - SomethingHere

    Player Name: SomethingHere Character Name: Carol Weaver Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: +2 Attack / -2 Damage; +1 Defense / -1 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Self-proclaimed defender of Lincoln at night, mild schoolteacher by day. Has some custody issues with her daughter, may or not be secretly an heir to an ancient West African tribe. Residence: Lincoln Base of Operations: N/A Catchphrase: Fear The Might of Lincoln! Alternate Identity: Lady Lincoln Identity: Secret Birthplace: Monrovia, Liberia Occupation: Elementary School Teacher Affiliations: People and/or groups you work with. Family: Tyrone Taylor (ex-husband), Cora Taylor-Weaver (daughter), Marcus Weaver (father), Nora Weaver (mother), Jennika Weaver (sister) Description: Age: 28 Apparent Age: N/A Gender: Female Ethnicity: African-American Height: 5'4 Weight: 115 lbs Eyes: Brown Hair: Dark-brown to Black Carol is a fairly pretty, although somewhat plain woman in her late-20s to early 30s. She tends to keep her very curly black hair in a bun or ponytail if possible, and regularly gets her hair straightened to make this easier. She has a wide nose and full flips, and her eyebrows are slightly arched. Trying to balance practicality and fashion, she tends to wear cardigans with floral dresses and flats, preferring colors like yellow and green above all else. As Lady Lincoln however, she wears a black and yellow spandex bodysuit, and she wears her hair in a tightly made bun to prevent it from getting into her face. Power Descriptions: Whenever she begins to mimic the power of an animal, Carol's eyes flash orange, and an aura of sorts seems to emanate from her. In addition to this, a faint outline of whatever animal she is channeling seems to form around her. History: Carol Weaver was born in Monrovia, Liberia, to Marcus and Nora Weaver. The eldest of two siblings, Carol grew up mainly helping out in the family business, which was selling and hawking various items in the bazaar, although oftentimes the products were somewhat more shady, including charms and totems made by her mother. This was all seen as normal to young Carol, and up until the age of 12, she believed that she would continue on in the family legacy of becoming a merchant - perhaps not much of an exciting life, but one that would provide her a good chance at a steady living. When she was 12, however, her life would change dramatically with the First Liberian Civil War. When unrest and protests broke out, Marcus and Nora decided it would be best for their family to get a fresh start faraway, so they fled to America, specifically Freedom City. Adjusting to life in Lincoln was hard for Carol and her family, although they tried their best to approach their problems with a positive attitude and belief that eventually, things would one day be better. Marcus found a job as a plumber, and Nora found work as a nanny for one the more affluent families in the neighborhood, so during this time, Carol's contact with her family was fairly limited, although her younger sister Jennika continued to be a comforting and stabilizing presence as she moved through middle school. All throughout middle school, Carol remained a fairly decent student, although she was more inclined to the athletic side of things, joining the girls' volleyball and track teams. Entering high school though, Carol met Tyrone. The captain of the basketball team, Tyrone was the guys all wanted to be, and all the girls wanted to be with, and by dating him, Carol was able to catapult herself to the top of the leaderboard. A whirlwind romance, Tyrone and Carol had an often tempestuous relationship, often breaking up and getting back together. This relationship continued well into college, where Carol decided to major in Education, and it was during her senior year that, in a heat of passion, Tyrone and Carol ended up having a child by accident. Met with surprise and some amount of scorn for both of their families, Tyrone and Carol decided to have a shotgun marriage, and both ended up regretting the decision. Both Tyrone and Carol were unprepared for a long-term commitment, and many of their days were spent arguing and bickering, all while trying to care for Cora. While both of them attempted to be good parents for their young daughter, their mutual animosity meant that something was desired when it came to their parenting skills, and it was decided by the judge that shared custody between the two of them would be the best, as long as their families also assisted in the raising of Cora. Now newly divorced, Carol finally found a job as a second-grade teacher at a local public school, in which she discovered she greatly enjoyed working with the children and helping them with their schoolwork. Around this time, her family life gradually improved once more, with her parents pitching in to take care of their granddaughter, helping Carol to slowly pave things over with her grandparents. However, it was during a routine class field trip to the zoo when everything went wrong. While in the zoo with her class, warnings started going off about radioactive energy within the zoo, and so a mass evacuation was underway. Carol helped her class to escape the Zoo inside, but she remained trapped as the doors and the gates all shut. The next day, Carol emerged from the zoo, apparently unharmed, but unmistakably changed. It first started when she was looking for her cat, and she began to be able to see in the dark, then when she was able to crawl on walls when thinking of spiders. Carol was confused and terrified, until she told her parents about what had happened. With her mother pulling out a dusty old book, she showed Carol a tale of an old Kpelle tribal warrior, the Lady of Light, they called her, who defended the Kpelle from invaders and deliver justice. While Carol didn't know if she believed in that specific story, she did know that something needed to be done to protect Lincoln. Like the Kpelle had the lady of light, Lincoln needed a new defender, someone to protect people from all of the gangs and all of the trouble that was going down. So, Carol took up the mantle of Lady Lincoln, to protect her home from danger. Personality & Motivation: Carol is outgoing, personable, and friendly, but also impulsive, rash, and prone to jumping to conclusions. She likes to be the one taking charge and taking initiative whenever it comes to working together, but this also means she's incredibly likely to try to get people to fight at the very first sign of danger, rather than trying to figure out something's weaknesses or work up a strategy beforehand. Carol's primary motivation is to defend Lincoln and by extension Freedom City, which means that she's usually going to be reacting to threats, but if she's got a lead on something, she's definitely going to follow it. Powers & Tactics: Carol's powers means that she can manifest the spirit, or at least some abilities of any animal of her choosing, such as spider which lets her crawl on walls, a tiger, letting her claw people, even a squirrel that lets her glide temporarily. However, because Carol is quite inexperienced with her powers, it still takes her a somewhat length amount of time in combat to fully summon the powers of an animal, and using her power too often often results in a splitting headache the morning after. In combat, Carol is quick and vicious, tending to prefer small but quick and numerous strikes that allow her to quickly overwhelm her opponent, as well as use her superior reflexes to dodge out of the way of incoming attacks. Complications: Baby Please: Carol aims to get full custody of Cora because she believes Tyrone is an unfit father for her, but she is currently stuck in a lengthy legal battle with him. This has started to seep over into her professional life as well, with her almost flying into a rage anytime someone mentions him. A Helping Hand: In almost all cases, Carol will attempt to save someone before pursuing an attacker, even if their capture is vital. This also means that she will never kill, always offering mercy as a last resort. What About The Children: Carol's job as a second-grade teacher often means she has the children on her mind, and this means that if she ever sees a child harmed, all her attacks are redirected at whoever committed the attack, as well as giving her a penalty to Defense.

Family: Close or otherwise significant relatives. Description: Age: 30 (DoB: 1986 [February 16]) Apparent Age: Mid Twenties Gender: Male Ethnicity: Korean American Height: 5'6 Weight: 154 lbs Eyes: Black Hair: Black Yoon-sung is a fairly muscular male whose hair is kept as a side swept fringe with neatened up sides. His apparel tends to lean to the plain t shirt and jeans section of the store. Yoon-sung is often seen wearing a red plaid jacket when not in his work attire. Which consists of dark blue coveralls. As Kuksón, Yoon-sung's face is covered by a Korean bridal mask. His superhero costume actually consists of a three piece suit, a black hat (adorned over the mask), and white gloves. His black shoes are heavily jewelled. History: Since the dawn of the Silla era, into every generation a shaman is reborn. They alone wield the strength to fight off the forces of darkness wishing to stake a claim in the Netherworld. A tradition established by the Hwarang (although there is evidence that the Wonhwa were the first to create such a hero) skilled Shamans were chosen for their honor and great spiritual enlightenment. These Shamans were entrusted with a weapon by the gods that allowed them to fight on equal footing with demons as deadly warriors. Yoon-Sung is not one such warrior. No, he was an simple auto mechanic who quickly learned just how curiosity killed the cat. Yoon-Sung was a high school dropout looking for a way to pay the bills so he took a job offer from Nick Long to work at the Long Auto Mechanic shop. Little did he know that Nick Long was the leader of the Emerald City charter of the King's Outlaw Motorcycle club. Much less that the King's trafficked illegal Russian Firearms. Unfortunately, both of these facts came to a head when Yoon-Sung poked his head where he shouldn't and looked inside the trunk of an antique car that Nick Long told him to touch. The contents were a mixture of automatic weapons, viridian stones, and a strange stone box with Korean characters on it. Freaking out, Yoon-Sung wanted to run away but he felt a strange tug from the box as if it were calling for him. Touching the stone he suddenly found himself impaled by a hail of bullets, mistaken for a thief by a Mafiya thug that had chosen that moment to check on the firearms. When Yoon-Sung opened his eyes again he was in the Seocheon Flower Field surrounded by shamans. It is then that they inform Yoon-sung that he has died. He was then informed that he descended from the highest bone rank (an outdated caste ranking from the Silla Kingdom) and for the deed of saving Princess Bari he was prevented with an opportunity to join their ranks as a shaman guarding the fields from would be thieves. That was until the first Shaman herself appeared and explained that Yoon-Sung was not a Shaman. She was indeed trapped inside the stone tablet, a deed committed by the Green Dragon Society during WWII, and it was something strange about his touch that she couldn't quite pinpoint that freed her. But, he was not a capable enough warrior to actually defend the fields, nor a learned enough intellect, to speak nothing of the fact that his body had yet to undergo the ritual to wash away all impurities. However, a reward was still in order. So she gave him a flower that would return his life and infused his body with the spirit of a fallen Silla swordman. One of the many in an extant line of shamans chosen to protect the Seocheon Flower Field from the mortal coils until death. Returned to his body in a hospital room, Yoon-sung's miraculous recovery was the talk of the hospital. No one noticed that he was now carrying a small piece of metal that wasn't there hours ago. Personality & Motivation: Yoon-sung didn't grow up religious, although he is honored of his choosing he has no inherent plans to become a proper shaman. He just wants to get back with his life and ignore the weirdness going on around him. But, he just can't help this desire to help those in need. While, not a proactive hero in that he won't go on active patrols at the first sign of trouble in Emerald City Yoon-sung can't help but leap headfirst into action Of course the spirit inhabiting his body may play some part in this. Powers & Tactics: Yoon-Sung's Saingeom was created in the Silla Era, long before the first officially documented one was created in the Joseon Era of Korea. Passed down shaman to shaman it contains all the memories of its previous owners. As such Kuksón has an innate martial skill that matches an expert swordsman. As the sword was crafted with the scales of a slain Imoogi, it has strange properties tied to the element of water. The blade is able to shift between all three states of water at the user's command. The sword also carries within it the souls of all it has slain. They can as such provide advice to help Kuksón in defeating his foes. In its water state the blade's weight is negligible and as such is ideal for high speed slashes and felling multiple foes in short succession. Furthermore, a single scratch of the blade can cause debilitating pain. In its ice state, the sword's weight adds to its raw destructive power while flash freezing his surroundings. As such the ice state is not ideal when civilians or allies are nearby. The gas state's blade turns into a heavy mist that obscures one's vision and makes it hard to smell, Kuksón can manipulate the mist Power Descriptions: When inert, his Saingeom appears like a small bladeless hilt. When activated in its water state the sword has 28 constellations, 27 sword characters, the om mani padme hum buddhist mantra, and finally a magical incantation which reads as follows: "The Heaven calls down the spirit, and The Earth helps the soul. The sun and the moon are shaped, mountains and rivers are formed, and Lightnings strike like storm. Move North Heaven to destroy evil in the land, make for righteousness in the natural order." In its ice state the blade's mantra is replaced with the Om Amideva. The blade is much thicker, becoming translucent rather than transparent. Though as a result the inscriptions are easier to read. In its mist the blade forms into a vaguely tiger shaped vapor surrounding the area around the user. The inscriptions are near impossible to read. Those able to read the vapor can make out the metta sutta written within. Those within the Mist Complications: Bad Boss: Yoon-sung still works for Nick Long. Hospital bills don't pay themselves. But, even without knowing the whole picture of his boss' criminal endeavors, he knows that Nick is bad news. Chivalry in Warfare: Superheroes don't kill unnecessarily, and neither did the chosen warriors of the Hwarang supposedly. But, that doesn't mean killing never happens. Those killed by his Saingeom have their soul taken into the blade. The souls inside the sword can provide Yoon-sung with advice. Unfortunately, the trustworthiness of said souls is more than lacking. After all, only the most evil beings would have necessitated killing. Not a drop to Drink: Yoon-sung's Saingeom's blade requires a source of moisture to form the blade. A 16 oz bottle of water will do. However, a capable villain can drain/evaporate the water used after a blade has been formed, requiring Yoon-sung to search for a new source of water. Pay the Toll: Yoon-sung can come back from the dead (again). At a cost, the sword will take his soul into it. Forcing him to engage in a trial by combat with the souls inside to earn his life back. But, if another soul wins they have the opportunity to gain control of his soul. Servants of a villain trapped within the soul may attempt to do everything they can to weaken. Sinbyeong: Yoon-sung suffers from sinbyeong. A spiritual sickness caused by an imbalance in the energies in his body due to the fact that he has no fully accepted the spirit possessing him. The GM should feel free to cause hallucinations, ask for a nightmare roll at the beginning of threads, sleepwalking and other symptoms are also up to a GM's discretion.

  8. Feeding Frenzy Power Level: 10 (150/150) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade offs: -3 defense/+3 toughness, melee -5 attack/+5 damage In Brief: Atlantean wereshark struggling to be a hero and not an animal. Catchphrase: Chow time Theme: Jaws Theme/monster by Skillet Alternate Identity: Koa Halelani (public) Birthplace: Pacific Ocean Residence: Claremont Base of Operations: Claremont Occupation: Student Affiliations: Claremont Family: Mother, Celeste Halelani Description: Age: 16 (DoB: 2000, September 15) Apparent Age: 16 Gender: Male Ethnicity: Atlantean Height: 5'9" Weight: 125 lbs Eyes: silver Hair: black Koa is a dark skinned very skinny boy. He's thin and on the shorter side. He hates wearing shirts and prefers to go around bare chested. If he has to wear a shirt he tries to leave as many buttons open as he can. His entire upper body is covered in black and red Polynesian style tattoos. He usually wears either cargo shorts, jean shorts, or swim shorts. He has webbing between his fingers and toes which forces him to wear zori sandals or go barefoot. His mouth has a few rows of sharpened teeth. When he's doing hero work he wears a pair of red goggles and a tight red swim cap. He also wears a pair of red and black swimming shorts. He also has a small utility belt with meat sticks in it. As a wereshark, Feeding Frenzy is a massive creature. He hunches over and still stands at seven feet tall. His fin sprouts from his back between his shoulder blades. Back between his legs is a large crescent shaped tail. His tattoos are all expanded over his tough black flesh. His face is totally unrecognizable, it's a massive shark head with rows and rows of teeth. His silver eyes are still present. History: As a boy, Koa remembered waiting for his father to come home. His father was a soldier. He fought for the kingdom of Atlantis and would often be gone for long stretches of time. However, he knew his father wasn't a normal soldier. He knew this because he wasn't a normal Atlantean boy. He and his father had the same set of abilities. From the time he could swim on his own Koa found himself very different from those outside his clan. His voracious appetite was the first thing. He could consume his entire body weight in a single sitting. But nothing set him off like blood. Any kind of blood even miles away beneath the waves made him fly into a rage. His father was one of the few people who could hold him back. For good reason, when they smelled blood they both would face that same fury. That same hunger. Koa's father trained him to resist the blood frenzy. When he turned twelve he began to find that his fury was matched with a change in his physical body (which, adding to puberty? Really really sucked.) his body became a slender shark with arms and legs. Atlantean Military training from his father made that more and more muscular. Koa would have wanted to continue to train under his father. But then Atlantis went to war. His father was part of the invasion force in Freedom City. He never came home. His mother couldn't train her son, and was afraid of what he might do if he lost control. So she pulled strings with her husband's military and government friends. Koa arrived at Claremont to learn to be a hero. He resented the deep ones for taking his father from him. On the other hand everyone looked at him with trepidation, he looked and fought like the invaders. So he decided to do one thing. Prove them wrong. He decided to be a hero. Not just a hero, the best hero. His way, his terms, but Koa would be undeniably heroic. Through and through. He wanted to show them that he was up to snuff. Personality & Motivation: Koa's farther was a hero. He raised his son to want to do right for the world. Koa wants to do right for his home nation. At Claremont he is trying to learn to become the man his father wanted him to be. He fights to prove the Atlantean aren't all terrible, and because he wants to prove that for himself. Powers & Tactics: Most people can't tell tell that Koa is a wereshark. This allows him to go around incognito or get a lot closer than he could as a humanoid shark. Usually Koa prefers to drop in and snatch people out of the way and into the dark. When forced to fight openly he prefers to grab enemies and grapple them. He is a grappler first and foremost in his Frenzy form. He batters away smaller enemies he can and bites those he can't just smack away. When he does fight outright Koa fights like a pro wrestler (cause that's what he thinks Surface heroes are.) shouting out the names of attacks and striking poses. He secretly loves this even if he knows it isn't his strength. Power Descriptions: Most of Koa's regular strength comes from Atlantean physiology. He's tougher, faster, and stronger than a normal human. He has gills in his neck and webbed hands. In his wereshark form his magic lends him his tremendous strength. He tends to opt for a crushing bite down on targets, due to years of training he doesn't devour enemies, but they will be left with pretty nasty wounds. Complications: Am I a monster?: At a very basic level turning into a terrifying shark on legs is enough to make people run screaming. In addition, most weresharks are ruthless and frenzied flesh eating berserkers. This means most Atlanteans, even those who appreciate his potential military uses, usually give him a wide berth. On another level, people still remember the Atlantean invasions. It's hard to wake up every morning trying to be someone who no matter what face you have is a scary one. Blood lust: When seized by the Frenzy Koa can't turn back until he has eaten flesh. He also can't control how much of a thing he eats when he starts there's no stopping until it is gone. Usually his keen senses can find something so that he can turn back, but if he can't the hunger will grow and grow. The longer and more times he transforms the more he needs to eat to grow back. Hunger of the Shark: Koa is a voracious eater, consuming triple his weight on a daily basis. In addition, he cannot turn back from his wereshark form unless he can eat meat. Needs water: Koa needs to spend at least fifteen minutes a day fully immersed in Salt water or he begins to become very sick. My Country Right or Wrong: Koa's father, was part of the invasion and Koa saw the videos of atrocities and even war crimes committed by his fellows, but he still stands by his people. A hero point should be awarded for forcing him to go against the nation of Atlantis.

  9. Nicki Dee Power Level: 10 (165/178PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent PP: 13 In Brief: To help her brother she become a criminal, now she trying to make up for that time. Alternate Identity: Merge Trois Identity: Secret Birthplace: Lincoln, Freedom City Occupation: Student Affiliations: Camera Obscura Family: Cheryl Dee (Mother), Tony Dee (Father), Dwayne Dee (Brother) Description: Age: 23 (DoB: December 9, 1992) Gender: Female Ethnicity: African-American Height: 5'4" Weight: 112 lbs. Eyes: Brown Hair: Black Nicki is an unremarkable looking woman, an image she works hard to maintain. Her clothes are fashionable, but off the peg, her hair cut helps hide her features and she taken to wearing glasses, though she doesn't need them. Power Descriptions: With a few moments concentration Nicki can call up her alter ego, Merge Trois, who can create copies of herself. Despite her name Merge Trois can produce an almost unlimited number or copies, though she often limits herself to three initially to confuse her foes. Whilst the Nicki and Merge are mentally linked, and Merge is driven by Nicki's desires, Merge can carry on independently of Nicki for an almost indefinite period. History: Growing up was often hard for the Dee family with her parents struggling to make end meets, this tension often led to heated arguments between Nicki parents. To escape this she created imaginary friends who she would spend hour happily playing with, her brother however escaped into alluring world of gangster rap and gang culture in general. Whilst Nicki studied hard to try and make a better life for herself and her family Dwayne fell into a life of petty crime and violence. Despite this Nicki care deeply for her brother who in his own way was always trying to look after and protect his little sister. For a while however things were okay the gang Dwayne ran with were pretty minor, happy to commit relatively low key crimes staying out of the way of the more powerful and violent gang and the notice of Lincoln resident supers. Then one day this all changed when a strange man offered the gang a chance for one big score. Nicki has never been sure exactly what happened as Dwayne came back changed. All of the gang were granted powers of some sort but Dwayne, who had volunteered to be lookout, came off the worst. As well as gaining the power to conceal him from all senses, he also gained the power to monitor and control all electronic devices as well as receive and transmit all broadcast frequencies. The problem was he can't turn the signals off and is constantly bombarded with the chatter of the electronic devices that fill our world. Whilst he can look after himself and following simple instructions, apart from occasional flash of his old self, Dwayne has been lost in the constant electronic noise. Her parents couldn't cope with what happened to their little boy and it fell on Nicki to take care of her big brother. Whilst doing that, and trying to complete her studies, she also started to make subtle inquiries about a cure for her brothers condition. Eventually she found somebody who was willing to help, but he warned her it would take massive amounts of money to achieve a cure. Luckily for her he could offer her powers, safe ones at that, which would allow her to gather this necessary money, for only a tiny addition to the total. Having exhausted all other options for a cure she reluctantly agreed asking for the type of power that would allow her to be in several places at the same time. Then she carefully began planning ways to earn the money necessary for his cure. Her short criminal career was successful and she managed to put by quite a bit of money for herself, her brother and her family. But it was with the help of the cities heroes that she managed to fine the help that her brother needed. Whilst her brother was recovering she retired from her brief criminal career, she even stopped being Merge for a while. But she missed the thrill of being Merge Trois and when the Freedom City was in crisis she decide to come out of her brief retirement and help her community. She hadn't consciously made the decision but now Merge is going to try to help Freedom City. Personality & Motivation: Whilst Nicki can come over as introverted she anything but shy and has, over the hard years of high school, learned to stay in the background and subtly manipulate people to get what she wants. Though Nicki is still inclined to use her abilities to just be left in peace she does now try to use them to help other people. Nicki has always had a strong moral code, she could never harm or kill anyone, and her career as a criminal hasn't changed her attitudes. She does however have a dim view of large corporations and banks, something her criminal career has only helped but be reinforce (though there are rare exceptions), she’ll make sure that people aren’t harmed but wouldn’t attempt to reduce property damage or the loss of earnings. Powers & Tactics: Whilst Merge prefers to use guile and cunning to avoid conflict if trouble starts she tend to rely in sheer strength of numbers to defeat her foes flooding the area with as many duplicates as she can. She also tend to avoid bringing Nicki into direct contact with the plan in hand, if possible she will remain a safe distance away and allow Merge to handle the situation herself. Complications: Freedom: No one knows that Nicki is Merge Trois, something that she works very hard to maintains. As far as possible they've try to maintain that they don't know each other, or at least only vaguely aware of each other. Right by My Side: Nicki feel responsible for her brother and will try to keep him safe and out of danger. Whilst she sometime uses him in her plans, if he's put into immediate danger she will put all her energies into protecting him. If made to choose between helping her brother and helping other's she naturally inclined to protect him first. Pound the Alarm: As far as law enforcement is concerned Merge Trois is still a wanted criminal, as well as a few of the Superhero community. Here choice of target's means she has little hassle for most beat cop's and detectives, but there always a few. Beez in the Trap: Merge's method of using other villains of for her own gain, as well her habit of getting revenge on those who tried to burn her, means that she has made quite a few enemies. The foundry in particular wish to get revenge on her for ruining one of their operations.

  10. Blodeuwedd (PL12/13) - Tiffany Korta

    Blodeuwedd Power Level: 12/13 (205/215PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent Power Points: 10 In Brief: A Welsh Ninja trained since an early age to battle rogue gods and spirits. Residence:. Base of Operations: Catchphrase: Alternate Identity: Blodwen Jones, Cerys Pefr, Ellis Bexter Identity: Secret Birthplace: Caerdathyl, Gwynedd, Wales Occupation:University Student Affiliations: Amddiffynnwr O Lleu Llaw Gyffes (Defenders of Lleu Llaw Gyffes), Blue Jay, Crimson Tiger, Kit Family: None, orphaned at birth Description: Age: 19 (DoB: 1st March 1996) Gender: Female Ethnicity: Welsh Height: 5’8” Weight: 125 lbs. Eyes: Hazel Hair: Dark Brown Blodeuwedd plays many parts and with years of practice she plays each part remarkably well. She can go from a high socialite to street kid with an almost perfect attention to detail from clothes to hair to makeup. When not playing a part, or at least Blodwen (or previously as Cerys), she tends to dress simply in loose fitting comfortable clothes with her hair tied into a ponytail or into braid(s). Her costume is simply the artefacts she has been entrusted with by the order, with the cloak around her and the strange glow of the goggles she can cut quite an imposing sight. Power Descriptions: Blodeuwedd has no natural powers only the years of training that has been provided to her by the Order. The Order has however managed over the centuries to have acquired, legally or via industrial espionage and even outright theft, a number of items both magical and technical. The best of this equipment has been given to Blodeuwedd to aid her in the mission. Each has been given a name after one of the fabled treasures of the British Isles. Dyrnwyn "White-Hilt": Scholars of the order debate whether this sword is the actual mythical weapon or a similarly named item. The debate is centred on the fact that the sword is actually a more medieval broadsword than the more suitable Celtic designs. Like the mythical sword this one becomes covered in a magical fire when it is drawn, though whether the sword will burn the unworthy is still unproven. Gwyddbwyll Gwenddoleu ap Ceidio "The Chessboard of Gwenddoleu ap Ceidio": These goggles appear to be a simple set of oversized night vision goggles, and they do indeed allow her to see in the dark. They also however contain a pair of specially prepared magical lenses that allow her to detect magical energies. The large flat lenses glow with a slight green light. Llan Tegau Eurfron "The Mantle of Tegau Eurfron": A tight fitting body suit and floor length cloak, with hood, weaved out of cutting edge materials that are not only light weight and flexible, but provides substantial protection to the owner. The suit is colored a dark blue to assist stealthy operations during night time. Made of advanced fiber panels there mimetic qualities allow it to alter its appearance to appear as almost any form of clothing. Ffoniwch Eluned "Ring of Eluned": This item is an alien ring, of unknown origins, which has been gifted to the order by one of their allies working from Cardiff. The ring projects a thin field of energy around the wearer which not only provides a degree of protection it also allows the wearer to camouflage themselves into the environment History: Blodeuwedd never knew her parents, they died when she was young, all she has known is the sanctuary of the Amddiffynnwr o Lleu Llaw Gyffes (Defenders of Lleu Llaw Gyffes). The men and women of the order were caring people and she was raised in a loving caring environment, but from an early age she was trained as an athlete and a warrior. Trained to be an agent of the order. According to legend the Order was founded by Lleu Llaw Gyffes himself as a body of men (and later women) to help defend him and the Kingdom of Gwynedd (later Wales) from the vengeance from the goddess, and his mother, Arianrhod. Through the centuries the order has expanded there remit to defend the nation from any supernatural threat being from the Celtic gods and spirits. Mostly from within Wales but occasionally the acted on threats outside the country. A small and deeply secretive order they rarely concern themselves with matters outside of Wales, but in the last few years there augers and intelligence network, have heard rumours that one of the Celtic god or goddess have allowed one of their offspring to live in Freedom City in the United States. After much debate the order decided to send an agent to the city to monitor the situation. As the seer showed the main focus was an unusual school they needed someone of the right age to infiltrate the school. Blodeuwedd knew nothing about this; she was being trained to recover dangerous Celtic artefacts. The first she knew was when she was informed of her mission by the Order and sent to America to infiltrate the school. Her orders were simple, find out if such people exists and if they do what danger they present to the order. Her time at Claremont has been where she has bloomed into a young woman who's confident and capable in her abilities. Whilst her loyalty is to the Order that raised her she is confident enough in her abilities to have stayed in Freedom City and finally in her life pursuing the interest that she wants to do with the firm friends that she’s made along the way. Personality & Motivation: Blodeuwedd is a quiet and reserved person with all her word and actions being carefully considered. She’s a quiet and conscientious student who watches everything and considers all the fact before asking questions. She a very stern and serious person but does has developed a very dry wit and is a master of deadpan, very few can tell if she’s serious or not. She also fiercely loyal to both the Order that raised her and the friends she’s made at Claremont’s and would, and has, drop everything to help either of them in her there time of need Powers & Tactics: Blodeuwedd has been trained to be a cautious fighter. She will spend as much time as possible calculating her enemy's abilities and weaknesses, if possible at a distance from a hiding place. Then when she is ready she will strike quickly and swiftly trying to disable her opponent. She has had it drummed into her to always spare her hand against human enemies, only against the gods and their allies are she allows unleashing her full fury. Complications: Rwy'n Cymraeg: Raised by a very pro-Welsh Order Blodeuwedd is naturally very proud of her Welsh heritage, it takes a great effort of will to hide her nationality or even her accent. She, and the order, aren’t however rabid nationalist fighting for independence. In their mind if the Queen was unfit to rule the land then the land we become barren. Only then would they have to act. Dipyn o acen: However hard she tries Blodeuwedd has never been able to completely lose her Welsh accent. Even when she does an almost flawless American accent the odd word or phrase will give away her Welsh heritage. Cyfeillion am byth: Blodeuwedd had forge friendship with her fellow Claremont students that were forged in fire. She would put everything on the line to help any one of them at a moments notice. Pwy ydw i?: Blodeuwedd maintained multiple identities in Freedom City. As well as Blodwen Jones the student she is also Ellis Bexter a young business woman, as well as temporary identities she may adopt to serve the Order. Along with time spent as the hero Blodeuwedd these various identities can take a toll on her time and energies.

  11. El Huracán (PL 10) ~ TheRedGuy

    Player Name: TheRedGuy Character Name: El Huracán Power Level: 10 (157/161PP) Trade-Offs: +2 Defense / -2 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 3 In Brief: Hotheaded Hispanic air controller studying at Claremont. Residence: Claremont Academy Base of Operations: Freedom City Catchphrase: TBD Alternate Identity: Aníbal Herrera Miramontes Identity: Secret Birthplace: Freedom City, USA Occupation: Claremont Student Affiliations: N/A. Family: Eduardo Herrera Moreno (father, age 55), María Elena Herrera Miramontes (mother, age 42), Alejandro Herrera Miramontes (brother, age 20) Description: Age: 16 (DoB: Feb 1st 1999) Apparent Age: late teens/early 20s Gender: Male Ethnicity: Hispanic Height: 5'9“ Weight: 175 lbs Eyes: Amber Hair: Jet Black Lean and muscular, Aníbal cuts a striking figure, appearing older and more mature than he really is. His skin is bronze, without visible blemishes save for a small mole above his upper lip. He keeps his hair neatly slicked back, and is always meticulously groomed. Perhaps his most unusual feature are his eyes, of a rare amber color, glimmering with warmth and mirth. His clothes are obviously expensive, but never gaudy, with no obnoxiously large labels or logos on display. He is usually dressed casually but conservatively, in a style reminiscent of North American „preppies“, though with a Latin twist to the colors and fabrics. His English is flawless, although spoken with a refined, velvet smooth Hispanic accent. Anyone meeting him for the first time would recognise immediately that he's a scion of the moneyed elite, a child of privilege. As El Huracán, he wears a specially designed flight suit. It is black, skin-tight, with gold accents on the boots and gloves, black goggles whose lenses appear gold-tinted on the outside, and a golden whirlwind symbol on the chest. Power Descriptions: Aníbal is a mutant aerokinetic, capable of controlling the flow of air currents to produce a variety of effects. He can create gale-force winds capable of knocking over opponents and pushing heavy objects, launch damaging blasts of compressed air, suffocate people by removing air from their lungs, deflect incoming projectiles and throw them back at the attacker, and cause a devastating whirlwind in an area of up to 125 feet in radius. His control over air also enables him to fly at speeds of up to 250 mph. His lungs have enhanced capacity, allowing him to hold his breath for longer periods of time and breathe normally even in extremely high altitudes. By sensing subtle variations in air flow, he can feel objects even if he can't see them. His custom-built flight suit comes with special glare-resistant goggles that adjust to allow improved vision in limited light conditions. The suit's padding affords limited protection from damage. It is lined with an experimental material that isolated the wearer from extreme heat and cold, as well as protecting from the effects of high pressure during fast aerial maneuvers. History: In 1993, during the Terminus invasion, Eduardo Herrera Moreno found himself in Freedom City, in the American headquarters of his firm, Herrera International. He had risen from humble beginnings and built a business exporting premium Mexican tequilas worldwide. Refusing the opportunity to evacuate the city, he stayed behind, helping the 50-odd employees of his Freedom City office escape to safety in the face of Omegadrone devastation. He himself sustained an injury during the attack, which reduced the Herrera International headquarters to rubble. His life was saved by the intervention of one of Freedom City's superheroes. While he was exposed to the strange energies of the Terminus, they seemed to have left no long-term consequences. After the attack was foiled, Herrera returned to Mexico a hero. The press praised his actions during the crisis and highlighted his generous donations to the reconstruction funds, particularly helping out the city's Hispanic neighborhoods. Overnight, the nouveau riche outsider became a fixture among the country's patrician elites. Soon he met a young socialite, María Elena Miramontes, daughter of Don Nicéforo Miramontes Castillo, owner of one of the largest agave plantations in Mexico and the associated Miramontes distillery. The two married in 1994, which boosted Herrera's standing and wealth considerably. In 1995, their first child, Alejandro, was born. In 1999, while María Elena was visiting her husband in Freedom City, she went into labor several weeks before she was due. On the eve of February 1st 1999, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, named Aníbal María Nicéforo Herrera Miramontes. The child was an American citizen by accident of birth. Little Aníbal grew up in Mexico, spending time in his father's luxury villa in Ciudad de Mexico and his grandfather's massive Rancho Miramontes. His father, an avid history buff, had named both his sons after famous conquerors, hoping to raise them to take over the family business. Aníbal was tutored by the finest private teachers, showing a precocious intellect and an aptitude for many different fields of study. He also enjoyed physical activity, learning to ride from an early age and excelling in sports, particularly gymnastics. He was, by all appearances, a normal kid, albeit one living in the lap of luxury and privilege. The only unusual ability he showed was an ability to hold his breath for extended periods of time, certainly nothing out of the ordinary. Still, after hitting puberty, strange phenomena began to occur. Strange gusts of wind would sometimes happen when he was nearby, often knocking over vases or sending papers flying. The wind would often change direction or intensity or abruptly stop. Still, no one connected this to him in any way. Until one fateful day… Aníbal had always particularly enjoyed the feeling of the wind in his hair and on his skin, and was always a passionate young man, a thrill-seeker by nature. He took up skydiving as a hobby, despite the protestations of his mother. On his first jump, accompanied by an instructor, there was a problem. The instructors parachute failed to open. Aníbal found himself thousands of feet in the air, plummeting towards the ground. He panicked. He could feel the air like never before, feel every current, every minute difference in pressure. Only one thought coursed through his mind: Up. Not down. Definitely up. He felt the grip of his instructor on his harness. He felt the currents change, the winds blowing from underneath, getting stronger and stronger, until the two of them suddenly stopped in mid-air, floating on the currents like a giant seagull. It was hard to tell who was more shocked by this development. „What the Hell are you, kid?!“, the instructor asked. „I don't know“, Aníbal answered in earnest. With some effort, Aníbal began to slowly descend, eventually landing in front of his shocked and horrified parents. A hefty payment was made to the instructor, who swore not to tell anyone what happened. Over the next couple of months, Aníbal came to terms with his abilities, learning to exert conscious control over them. He learned he could cause winds, powerful, devastating, gale-force winds, if he focused enough to do it. He learned to fly using the air currents, and asked his parents to finance the construction of a prototype flight suit designed to make flying through the air easier and safer. He learned to compress air and launch it with devastating force against obstacles. This was indeed great power, and he firmly decided it could not be suppressed or kept a secret. His grandfather had always spoken of noblesse oblige, the obligation of the powerful to protect those less fortunate than them. A superhero was a kind of nobleman for the 21st century. Aníbal decided to use his powers for good, to help people. His father was uncertain. He had wanted to groom his sons for power, but this was not the power he had in mind. Still, he had seen the destruction wrought by an immensely powerful threat checked and defeated by superheroes, one of whom had saved his life. He agreed to his son's request, on condition that he keep his identity a secret. Soon afterwards, he used his extensive contacts to arrange his son's transfer to an exclusive private school for gifted youngsters in Freedom City, a place where he would hone his abilities and learn to master them. Taking the name El Huracán, after the Mayan god of storms, Aníbal took the first step in his career as a hero. Personality & Motivation: Aníbal was given a patrician upbringing, and it shows in his manner and attitude. He carries himself with poise and elegance, although without a trace of arrogance or coldness. Naturally charismatic, he enjoys company and conversation and knows how to put most people at ease. He's classically handsome and charming in an old-fashioned way, which makes him popular with the girls – although he leans more towards boys. Still, his smooth approach may be seen as insufferably fancy and patronising by those of a more coarse, direct bent. Despite the fact his demeanor makes him appear more mature and levelheaded than the typical teenager, he is nevertheless still young, and has a passionate, impulsive streak liable to get him into trouble. He was always a little reckless, and the development of his powers has made him even more prone to rush headlong into danger at the first opportunity. His motivation for becoming a superhero is a sense of personal responsibility instilled in him by his grandfather, an old-fashioned landowner. While he has no interest in playing the role of a businessman or the padrón of a hacienda, he feels obligated to use his newfound powers to make the world a better place to live, and particularly to protect those less fortunate than he is. He's proud of his heritage, and eager to serve as a role model to young Latinos everywhere and an ambassador for his country and community. However, in addition to these lofty aspirations and ideals, another reason for his choice is a typical teenage boy's pursuit of excitement and adventure, and an opportunity to impress some handsome chicos or cute senoritas. Powers & Tactics: In a combat situation, El Huracán will stay out of range, relying on dodging enemy attacks or deflecting them by manipulating the wind. He attacks from a distance, hurling blasts of air or knocking down opponents with gusts of wind. Usually he stays in the air, hovering above the action and avoiding direct contact. While his suit offers him some protection, able to stop pistol bullets and cushion cuts and blows, he is rather fragile in an up close fight, easily overpowered by a trained or stronger foe. He has a love of flashy moves and daring stunts, and his natural confidence and rapier wit can get under the skin of opponents, as well as inspire his comrades. While he has a good grip on his powers, his youth and inexperience can land him in hot water. Complications: Anchors Aweigh: As a dual citizen of Mexican heritage, Aníbal may occasionally run into some anti-immigrant sentiment. Having to divide his loyalties between Mexico and the US may also pose a problem in some cases. Who Is That Handsome Young Devil?: He promised his parents to keep his true identity a secret. It's not easy. Target of Opportunity: As the son of one of the wealthiest men in Mexico, he's a ripe target for anyone trying to cause harm to his father. Salsa y Sabor: A combination of inherited passionate temperament and teenage recklessness makes him prone to showboating and flamboyant displays of his powers. He'll usually take unnecessary risks and rush into danger where a more considered approach would be superior. Rich Corinthian Leather: Aníbal had a privileged upbringing, and is used to living in the lap of luxury. While he is generous and sympathetic to those less fortunate than himself and never ostentatious with his money, he does enjoy the finer things in life. Because of his upper class lifestyle, he can find it hard to relate to those from poorer backgrounds, and they in turn may resent his wealth and good fortune. Touched By The Terminus: Although it hasn't been officially established, it is likely that Aníbal's powers stem at least in part from his father's exposure to Terminus energy years before. This may cause problems later on.

  12. Comrade Frost (PL 10/13) - Impervium

    Comrade Frost Power Level: 10/13 (various) (205/205PP) Trade-Offs: +2DMG/-2ATK, +2TOU/-2DMG Unspent PP: 0 Alternate Identity: Dr. Dimitri Ivanovitch Peshkov, the "Ice Commissar" Identity: Public, though the fact that he is a vampire is not known to the general public Birthplace: Moscow, Russia Occupation: Liaison between People's Heroes and Freedom League Affiliations: People's Heroes, Freedom League Family: No blood relatives living In Brief: Ex-Soviet cryokinetic vampire supersoldier turned occult investigator Age: 104 (Born August 1, 1913) Apparent Age: 30 Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian [turns extremely white when using his powers] Height: 5'8" Weight: 150 lbs Eyes: Light blue [pink when using his powers] Hair: Light blond [white when using his powers] Physical Description: Comrade Frost these days dresses in a blue, white fur-lined parka over a dapper white suit. He wears a blue domino mask with black eyepieces and usually keeps the hood up, and white gloves in situations where he knows he'll need to use his powers (using them for any length of time generally makes his hands very cold to the touch). His skin turns extremely white while using his powers. In more formal occasions, he loses the parka and mask and simply rocks the suit. In very formal occasions, he'll don the modified blue and white uniform he wore as a zampolit in World War II. That's also the only time you'll see him wear his medals, and between one thing and another he's got a lot of those. Power Descriptions: Comrade Frost is a cold manipulator only, unlike many other cryokinetics who can summon large amounts of ice and snow. He can drain the heat out of large groups or individuals, as well as brittly freezing solid objects or paralyzing someone's muscles with a touch. He can heal his own injuries by draining the heat from the environment around him, but only when he focuses his attention on a single target: otherwise the heat becomes lost to him. He can fly by transforming himself into icy fog; he can make himself tougher by freezing himself solid. His eyes turn an albino's pink when he's actively using his powers, and his hair frosts white like snow. Personality and Motivations: Surprisingly warm for a century-old Communist vampire, Comrade Frost has an avuncular relationship with young people, especially young heroes. He's ultimately a gentle man who enjoys a joke, even one at his own expense, and is only really roused to anger by Nazis, pseudonatural creatures, and other unholy monsters. His decades of unlife have taught him to respect magic, but he fears it in the wrong hands, and won't be afraid to utterly destroy some mystic artifact rather than let it fall into the hands of evil. History: Born in a small town outside Moscow in 1913, Dimitri Peshkov was not an attractive man in life. A bright student, he grew up lazy and a little jaded, convinced of his own intellectual superiority over his fellow students in high school and college. He became a veterinarian, tending to the animals in collective farms, out of a mild interest in helping those less fortunate but mostly for the chance to be the smartest and best-educated man in the room. When war threatened his country in 1941, he joined the NKVD, not the Red Army, not out of a special patriotism, but because he thought it would keep him away from the battlefield. He was wrong; and that would be the death of him. The old Dr. Dimitri Peshkov died beneath the sacrificial blade of the Thule Society in the spring of 1942. The NKVD doctor had been captured on the Arctic front during the defense of Murmansk and had, under the Commissar Decree, been handed over by the Wehrmacht to the SS for execution. He might simply have been shot, but a passing group of Thule mystics needed him for a special task. Operating in the far north under Kantor's commnd, the Thule circle had found an ancient Norse altar, consecrated to Hel and her father Loki, and had learned they needed human blood to open the gateway to another world. And so they did. But as Peshkov fell into darkness, a voice came to him. The life-long atheist found himself floating before Hel, the guardian of Niflheim and ruler of the Norse underworld, one of the first new arrivals in her realm in a long time. Hel explained to Peshkov, as one would to a child, that she could not be summoned to Earth by such powers the Nazis had. In the heart of the greatest war the world had ever known, Death already stalked the land, and no wizard could hope to control it. But she had seen the capture of her haughty uncle Donar, and knew the plans of the Thule Society for the world of men, and she loathed them for the blasphemers they were. So she offered Peshkov a choice. He was a descendent of Rurik and had died at the hands of her enemies; if he stayed in Niflheim in her palace, he could have a place at her side to tell her about the world above, and perhaps as master of those few Thule sorcerors who had fallen into her hands when they had died of disease or accident after taking up the worship of the Asgardians. Or he could walk the Earth again as a draugr, a being of great power and might, with the heart taken from him by the Nazis replaced by a gateway to the icy realm of Niflheim. Given the choice, Peshkov chose to live. If you could call it living. Dimitri awoke on the altar and froze his captors solid, burning their shrine down behind him and feeding on the heat within as he began the long, painful walk back to Soviet lines. He learned how to control his powers and feed from the heat of the sun, from burning fires and life's heat rather than life's blood, and when he arrived back among his own people (and immediately, wonderfully, was plunged into a hot bath...that he immediately froze solid), Dimitri Peshkov was ready to begin his new identity: Comrade Frost, costumed defender of the Soviet Union! But of course it wasn't that easy. Dimitri was the only one of his allies familiar with magic, something which his own government denied the existence of. Comrade Frost rapidly became the Peoples' Heroes' magic expert, a role he had to play very subtly. He took every chance he could to team up with the Allies of Freedom and the Liberty League, desperately trying to pool his resources with those better-connected and better-educated in these matters as he tried to stave off the threat of magical darkness at home. And there was the war, grim and terrible. Comrade Frost was one of the first Soviet super soldiers into Berlin, and was there for the last great convulsion of the Reich. His superiors denied his request to join the hunt for Kantor, and so he wasn't there when the Allies of Freedom were betrayed and murdered by the forces of darkness. It was a hard blow for the super-soldier and he slipped into a deep depression after the war. Only a battle against the snake-cultists of Lithuania roused him from his funk in 1948, the mystic-trained hero recognizing the cultists of Yig for what they were! If the cultists of the Unspeakable One and his dread allies had come to the Soviet Union, there were urgent matters to deal with indeed. His war wasn't over. Comrade Frost was not one of the better-known Soviet super-soldiers to the general public; he was just there in the various engagements with American heroes, German holdouts, Baba Yaga, and the other famous battles of the Peoples' Heroes but he was well-known to superheroes. Sometimes he was an enemy to mystic heroes in the United States and elsewhere, stealing mystic artifacts out from under their noses for the Soviet Union's use but for the most part he was an ally: a fellow enemy of darkness who could always recognize that there were threats to the universe as deadly as any nuclear missile. Briefly imprisoned in 1953, he was freed after Stalin's death. He was a busy man in the 1960s as Stalinist controls lapsed and the world of magic became more and more powerful in the Soviet Union, taking time out to fight Superior in Cuba in 1962 and war against the forces of Baba Yaga in the 1970s. Dispatched to Afghanistan in the late 1970s to help battle undead warriors summoned to life there by Muslim clerics, Peshkov was horrified at the violence and pointless waste of yet another war; when he returned home in the 1980s, he let others take over his role as magical champion while working to support Gorbachev's reforms. With the fall of the Soviet Union, Peshkov resumed his work as a defender of the world against magical threats, for the first time working regularly in countries besides the land of his birth now that he was free to travel. There was a whole world out there!

  13. Sea Devil and Singularity - Orichalcum (PL 10)

    Character Name: Sea Devil (and Singularity) Power Level: 10/10 Trade-Offs: Various Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: A Deep One outcast living among Surfacers, gifted with space armor and trying to fight for a better world. Homebase: The DuTemps Building, Freedom City Songs: My Beloved Monster, Eels Fight Song, Rachel Platten Alternate Identity: Aquaria Innsmouth (Aquaria's Deep One name is not pronounceable by Surfacers) Identity: NA Birthplace: An unnamed island in the US Virgin Islands Occupation: Adventurer Affiliations: The DuTemps Building, the Liberty League (associate member), the Esoteric Order of Dagon and Hydra Family: Jessie White, the DuTemps Building, the Liberty League - she has living relatives including several young adult spawn, but Deep Ones do not view these relationships the way Surfacers do. Age: Aquaria is a Deep One female in the prime of life. Gender: Female Height: 5'7"/6'1" in armor Weight: 180 lbs/280 lbs in armor Eyes: Black and gold Hair: None Description: Outside of her armor, Aquaria Innsmouth is clearly no Surfacer. Her bulging black and gold eyes are set much too far apart to be a human's and her nose, flattened almost against her face, is more like a snout. She has no visible ears. Her mouth is big and opens far wider than a human's could - the teeth inside are sharp and serrated like the inside of a shark's mouth. Her skin is mottled green and white, white towards the belly and green towards the black, a dark green the color of certain unnameable seas. Her body is not quite shaped 'right' either - her limbs are too long and jointed like a frog's rather than a normal woman's, her torso too sturdy, and her arms and legs both end in three-fingered 'hands'. Her skin is covered in blue and black tattoos depicting strange and fantastic scenery, looking like something out of a hallucination. Her voice is deep and loud and sounds decidedly peculiar to human ears. She is cold and slick to the touch, like touching the skin of a frog or a smooth-scaled fish. When using her disguise spell, she looks like a distinctly odd human - a muscular female with pale skin, long limbs, a loud voice and fluffy black hair, with big, wide eyes that stare fixedly and with a particularly large mouth. She usually wears hoodies, long pants, and rain boots to hide the ways her body still doesn't match the profile of a human's. Her skin is still cold and slick to the touch. Inside her armor, Sea Devil looks rather different from the typical armored hero - the armor's massive limbs and glowing blue 'fingers' are probably its most striking feature, as are a faint opalescent sheen overlain over the black of the armor itself. That sheen, seeming to glow with all the colors of the rainbow depending on one's perspective when looking at the armor, is instantly recognizable - and all too familiar for space-born heroes. Her head is almost completely invisible inside the armor, though she can make her faceplate go translucent, or even transparent, should she wish. When she speaks while wearing the armor, the digitized booming base of her voice sounds like nothing else. History: It's an old story, really - a tribal people, trading with the city folk who lived on the good land, hunting and fishing and singing the songs of their ancestors, at least until the others come - with terrible weapons and sinister intent, they destroyed the tribe's home and chased them away into the darkness. The tribe roamed from spot to spot, settling here and there for a time, until finally finding a home among the people far from the ancient and terrible enemy. Aquaria has lost track of her age. She was an adult, old enough to have mated and spawned, when the tribe found the ancient city, ending their long wandering after the Atlanteans had destroyed their rocky island home during the first flush of her adulthood. She remembers her joy at meeting the Dark Brothers (or so they called the city-dwellers), the glee at learning she would finally gain her true power as a Deep One - before finally she saw the horrific blood sacrifice of the city-dwelling cult of Dagon and Hydra. She fled, in horror - but where could she go, in a sea beset by her enemies, where even her own people were no longer her friends? She picked the Surfacers and began a long, solitary journey up the East Coast of North America - she taught herself to read their language and understand the rudiments of their culture. When she learned of a Deep One attack against a Surfacer city, she headed that way - she'd heard confused stories of a Deep One hybrid leading the invasion forces and wanted to see what had become of it. So she showed her face in Freedom City - and promptly found herself battling superheroes. After all, this was just a few months after Archevil - nobody wanted to take any chances. She nearly died in Blackstone, the air cold and dry, her voice echoing off the walls, alone - until she heard the halting echoes of Lemurian from the Surfacer outside her cell. An early volunteer for Project Freedom, her acclimation to Surface life - to the mistrust, the prejudice, the dry air, the bad food, the aloneness, was hard, but it was better than death. And then things got even better when she met Singularity, aka Jessie White - she'd seen the Surfacer woman in a cell near hers in Blackstone and though they hadn't spoken then, the familiarity was enough to make them roommates at Project Freedom. Aquaria wasn't scared of Jessie's strange moods and desire for solitude - and Jessie didn't mind Aquaria's strange smells and bizarre habits so much. She was the first new member of Aquaria's pod. Now they're free and living in the DuTemps Building, where their pod has grown substantially - even including friends who swim in the Sea of Stars. It's not the same as the world she left behind, but it's a good enough world. She'll be reunited with her Deep One brothers and sisters again - when the stars are right. Personality and Motivation: By Surfacer standards, Aquaria is generally cheerful, talkative, and loud - something that can be intimidating for a frog-mouthed, shark-toothed Deep One! She's aware that friendliness and good cheer are something Surfacers like, so she sometimes plays this up. She's gregarious, being a creature happiest in groups, and always eager to make friends. She nonetheless is _not_ a Surfacer - she is an obligate carnivore who worships strange gods and practices strange rites, and who has a worldview very different than many of her friends. Powers and Tactics: Outside of her armor, Aquaria is not a terribly brave fighter - she'll strike from concealment or from surprise, and otherwise seek every advantage in a fight. She'll probably take advantage of her superior senses and familiarity with the dark and the water to fight an opponent at night underneath a flooding dock, and the like. Despite her sharp teeth and handclaws, she prefers to fight with hard kicks from her massive legs. She's not that different while wearing the armor, hanging back and firing spectrum blasts from her tridents until she's actually forced into melee. Once there she's effective enough - but is particularly effective when fighting alongside the mighty Singularity. Complications: How Far I'll Go: An explorer born, Aquaria Innsmouth can never turn away from a new adventure. An Innocent Warrior: Of all Aquaria's friends, Jessie White is the greatest - and perhaps the most troublesome. We Know The Way: Aquaria is a disciple of what is sometimes called the Aeon Cult among Surfacers but to her is simply the Faith - the worship of the gods of the Deep One, widely considered a dangerous, apocalyptic cult among Surfacers and Atlanteans. Shiny: Aquaria despises Atlanteans, thinking of them as cruel, jealous imperialists - and Atlanteans typically view her as a murderous barbarian cultist. Where You Are: Aquaria dreadfully misses her fellow Deep Ones and the society beneath the waves - and might take chances to return. It doesn't help that the Surface is so cold and dry! I Am Aquaria: Apostate, traitor, and worse - her fellow Deep Ones (those who know the story of the Deep One who consorts with Surfacers) generally don't share her feelings. You're Welcome: Granted space armor by a quirk of galactic politics, Aquaria Innsmouth is an object of interest both to the Star Knights - and to the secret patrons of the terrible Spectrum Knights.

She carries herself with a combination of athleticism and hesitancy - as if forever afraid she's going to break some thing, or some one. She generally speaks quietly, even, and perhaps especially, when angry. In combat she wields a short, dark baton like a single escrima stick, one she can snap open to staff length. She wears a blue jumpsuit in combat, if she has time to gear up. History: Victim. Survivor. Monster. Weapon. Prisoner. Artist. Hero? Jessie White, displaced from her own dying world into a hellish alternate reality, now living on a world where she is a shadow of another woman, bearing her own reputation as a mindless killing machine. At least her best friend is a monster from below the waves who worships strange gods and eats live fish for fine? It's good to know she's not alone - even if sometimes she thinks she's better off that way. Personality and Motivation: Jessie keeps her personality restrained as best she can, keeping her voice and passions to herself. She's better off that way - and so is everyone else around her. She does feel things, sometimes intensely, with strange visions of a life that wasn't hers and of the horrific reality beyond it - but she tries to keep them to herself. Pretending to be normal is hard enough without thinking about all the ways she's anything but. Powers and Tactics: Jessie White fights with her bat, striking with the mechanics of someone who has solid, albeit limited, training in melee combat. She'll strike to stun and to daze, staying mobile with leaps and kicks, not too dissimilar from her aquatic friend. Singularity fights to kill. She doesn't come out much - even when Jessie's in costume. But sometimes she does. Jessie doesn't like to think about that.

  14. Daggers (Twisted Mortal, Newbie, PL 10 slot)

    Player Name: Twisted Mortal Character Name: Daggers Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-offs: +3 Attack / -3 Damage, +3 Defense / -3 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: A human hunter of supernatural creatures that prey on humans by night. Rich playboy thrillseeker by day. Residence: Freedom City Base of Operations: Freedom City Catchphrase: "Your reward, foul creature." Alternate Identity: Jason Hart Identity: Secret Birthplace: Lima, Ohio Occupation: Idle Wealthy Affiliations: Various sports organizations Family: John Hart (father), Billie Hart (mother) Description: A tall guy, not with big muscles, but definitely put in time at the gym. during the day, he outfits mostly in sports clothes. His cover is that he donates and participates to sports leagues. So, if he's at a baseball game, he's in baseball gear. At night he dresses up in a sleek black leather outfit, boots, gloves, and over the face mask and cowl. He carries two magically strengthened bone daggers when in hero attire. Age: twenty-something (DoB: 1994, July 5) Apparent Age: youngish Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 6 foot Weight: 200 pounds Eyes: brown, deep set Hair: brown, short cut, styled Power Descriptions: carries two bone daggers that command him to hunt creatures of the night and protect the innocent. besides their obvious stabbing they do, they have a few magical tricks. they can make him invisible, they can see through supernatural disguises and illusions, if separated, he can warp to the missing one without error. He can communicate with the daggers, calling on it's vast knowledge. The costume is 'less impressive'. It's a black reinforced leather armor that alloys him as much movement as the material can. It also comes with a mask that has integrated nightvision goggles. History: Jason Hart's family made some wise investments in the 80s and 90s. Once the tech boom hit, they never had to worry about money again. Jason, however, did not enjoy the sedentary lifestyle. His mother worried about him, but he had access to whatever dangerous new sport that came long. And he did so, with gusto. His father was a jet setter, and Jason travelled with him. Traveling all over the world, learning new and exciting ways of pushing his body. One trip in particular was life changing for him. In a Russian auction, he saw a pair of bone daggers that he had to have. Money was no object and after outbidding a particularly pale looking individual, he picked up his reward. On the way out, the man he was bidding against trailed him. The daggers warned him that he was being followed and to take the handles. Jason though that was weird. Without words he took the daggers in hand. the pale man attacked and Jason took him head on, knowing more than a few knife-fighting styles. The daggers took it a step further than Jason was comfortable with and slew the pale man. Though Jason would soon learn that the pale man was not human, but a vampire as the pale man crumbled to ash. The daggers told Jason that he was the owner of the daggers and that only though death would he be able to relinquish them. Until then he would hunt the evil that stalked the night, the vampires, the werewolves, the demons. Anything that would prey on humans. Initially Jason tried to ditch them, but as soon as he would, they would appear by his side or in his hands to protect him. He anguished over this torment for about a year, but secretly, the daggers were training him to fight the good fight. Eventually Jason relented. He rationalized that this was the most dangerous sport. Being a superhero. Personality and Motivation: Jason is a gracious person who looks after people. It's his lot in life and he enjoys it. He's a bundle of energy as Jason, trying everything at least once. Thrillseeking is something he enjoys. Not that he's hasty to throw his life away, but from the outside looking in, one wonders. Jason is motivated to help people in need. Either as a wealthy person or a hero. Powers and Tactics: Jason is a melee fighter, trained in several martial art styles. Though some times it doesn't even matter. the daggers that gave him his mission are his primary weapon. Fighting with gusto against supernatural creatures, the daggers always command him to make the fight short. He's only human, they remind him. Against nonsupernatural creatures, the daggers help him also, but he's learned nonlethal styles to deal with them. the daggers are less involved in those battles, sometimes not even bothering. Complications In It For Life: Jason has to pursue monsters until the day he passes on. This is not a choice. Mom and Pop: His family. Paying To Play: Jason puts his money into several big name sports organizations. The Real Job: No one but Jason (and the daggers) knows of his nightly heroic activities. Watch This!: Do not dare him. Do not give him a chance to show off. It would take divine intervention to stop him. What's Your Sign?: Jason is notorious in his pursuits to woo women.

Occupation: Robert works in a small library in Parkside - it's a pleasant enough place, though Vita's presence tends to coincide with the quiet times. Affiliations: At the moment, Vita's social circle is extremely small. He keeps in contact with his family, who live out in Hanover, but he's been something of a recluse since moving out three years ago. The closest thing he has to a friend is Gregor Kisliak, his boss and proprietor of Kisliak's Oddities, a small and eclectic library in Parkside. Family: Vita's mother and younger sister both live in Hanover (The suburb, not the European region.). He has extended family, but their whereabouts are unknown to him and could be anywhere from Egypt to England. Description: Age: 24 (DoB: 24/2/1993) Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5' 10" / 175 cm. Weight: 142 lb / 63 Kg. Eyes: Black, without iris or sclera. Hair: Black When on "the beat", Vita Nexus prefers to wear a solid trenchcoat as his main fashion statement, along with sturdy boots and khakis. His hair is long and tied into a loose ponytail and he is almost never without a thick notebook and analog writing instrument. He only uses a phone to call others, fearing shorting it out with his power by draining it's charge unnecessarily. History: To describe the story of Vita Nexus, one first needs to delve deep into the history of the Dark Ages, to an unrecorded village in a backwater duchy somewhere in modern-day Italy, where a local baron dabbles in the dark arts. He had long since graduated from petty thaumaturgy, experimented in alchemy and conjuring as a fun hobby and had summoned tens of demons and devils to barter for secrets and forbidden lore. But he found himself stymied at every step by a lack of potential - he had the skill, but the raw power to be able to experiment as he wanted escaped him. So he focused his attention on this endeavour, and soon hit upon a solution. It would cause suffering, but he wouldn't have to be the one to suffer, so it was a price he gladly paid. The details of the ceremony have long been lost to time, but the result was what he wanted - a conduit of powers that only he could tap that would last forever, all anchored to one of his peasant farmers. The farmer was spirited away from the village for the sole purpose of becoming victim to this arcane curse and, once his part was played, was spirited back. All that is known is that the ceremony took place over the course of a single night, and marked the villager - and his kin - forever. That villager soon found his life turned upside down. He was marked with eyes of pitch black and skin like that of those dead, cold and pale. People who once greeted him with smiles and cheer now had no warmth for him - only cold sneers and suspicious minds. Crops failed, animals sickened and all of this fell on this unnamed peasant's shoulders. It did not take long before he was asked - upon threat of force - to leave. So began a period of restless travel for him and his family, not staying i one place for more than a few months. Heartbreak followed in his wake, and soon after he passed on. As the life slipped out of his body, though, the true pain of the curse was made manifest as his eldest daughter, then thirteen, complained of a chill passing through her body. It took an hour for the curse to fully take hold, after which she bore the same marks as her father - cold, pale skin, eyes the color of a moonless night and the pain of ages on her face as she took the burden upon herself. And so time passed. The family continued to travel, continued to hide their nature and try and manage as best they could. When powerful, strong-willed inheritors came along great strides were made and eventually a peculiar mixture of magical tricks, meditative techniques and even martial exercises began to be passed down the family. It was no cure, but it aided their plight by allowing them the capacity to direct and channel the siphoning force away from those most at risk and focus it instead towards better targets - even themselves, should they need to. This, combined with a population and technology boom simply unimaginable to the original warlock noble who cursed the family so long ago, caused the curse's impact to lessen. Outright hatred faded, though the family still suffered mistrust and found no familiar home anywhere, even in the New World. Life could continue and even thrive if an Adficio sufferer lived nearby, though conditions remained difficult for those already infirm or susceptible. It is into this world that Robert Spalding was born. His childhood was as good as it could be for that of his bloodline, especially the eldest born. His grandmother, Ruby Spalding, held out against the curse for an admirable length of time, reaching the ripe old age of seventy before passing. He was home schooled in both traditional academics and the Adficio Supprimere, the arts that allowed control and direction of the Vita Adficio, and at both he proved a capable student, inquisitive and dedicated at both the study and the arts. He was well on his way to full control of the arts when his grandmother passed, bestowing the Adficio upon his father when he was 14. He was not made of the same stuff as his mother, though, and rapidly fell ill. Robert watched his father go from a healthy, happy man to one on his deathbed within two years, and the fall etched itself into his mind. As Anthony Spalding faded out of this world and Robert felt the chill run through his body, he made an oath. "I will not allow the Vita Adficio to claim me, or any other. If there is a way, I will put an end to this curse, once and for all." The identity of Vita Nexus, the Meeting Point of Life, came soon after. He moved out of home when he was first able, at the age of 21 and set himself up with a job in a small, run down private library owned by a spry old man in Parkside named Gregor Kisliak and started living two lives. By day, Robert Spalding was a recluse and keeper of order in Kisliak's Oddities and peruser of as many musty old tomes as he could. By night, though, when the shadows are deep and people of ill intent begin to stir, Vita Nexus hit the streets, feeling out the terror of victims and the malice of assailants and bringing them to the justice they deserve. He knows the reputation of Freedom City as one of the hubs of metahuman activity on the East Coast and believes that, should he catch the right person's attention, he might find a way to the release he seeks... Personality & Motivation: For all the doom and gloom the curse inflicts upon him and those around him, Vita Nexus is a surprisingly optimistic sort. That's not to say he's a ray of sunshine, but he's often quietly confident and sure that his powers and foresight will see him through whatever troubles might come his way. His motives are surprisingly simple - find a way to remove the Adficio curse from his family and, while he searches, use his unusual talents to help make the world a better place. Powers & Tactics: Vita Nexus relies on the side-effects of the Adficio to both protect him from harm and prosecute his battles - in defense, the Adficio draws the speed and severity of incoming projectiles away before impact, turning lethal blows into uncomfortably hard impacts and making even light weapons feel sluggishly heavy. In attack, the Adficio can incapacitate a foe by drawing away their very vitality and suppressing mental activity to the point of unconsciousness. Such assault is eminently recoverable and, excepting outside influence, controlled to the point of posing no real risk of death. His strategies would be bull-headed were it not for his capacity to protect himself from harm using the Adficio, directly provoking responses from aggressive targets before subduing them. Power Descriptions: Vita's powers are often associated with darkness, cold and the requirement of great effort to overcome. His Stun power manifests as people becoming muddle-headed and easily confused until they eventually slip into unconsciousness, his conjured Darkness is always unpleasantly (but not dangerously) cold and his Drain ability often causes a dimming of light in the immediate area as well as chills and numbness. As a result, Vita's skin and immediate environs are always cold, clammy and just a little bit darker than what one would expect. Touching or striking him, in particular, can feel like moving through treacle. Complications: Always Looking For an End to the Curse: Though Vita Nexus shoulders the burden of the Adficio admirably, there is no hiding the fact that it shortens his lifespan and severely impacts his quality of life as well as that of a significant proportion of his family. As such, sources of arcane lore and knowledge are the single most precious treasures for Vita, and he will go out of his way to discover them if there is reason to believe they exist. No Love For The Adficio: Part of the Vita Adficio's side effects is a decay of the bonds between people, especially involving the person at the heart of it all. The end result of this is a general mistrust, suspicion and sometimes outright paranoia towards Vita. This is not nearly as pronounced with empowered people, since their souls are much more extensive than most. Walking Magical Dynamo: The Vita Adficio has been quietly and efficiently siphoning energy away from the world for between 5 to 9 centuries, with no outlet for the power harvested. That makes whoever is "blessed" with the Adficio a walking battery of magical potential possibly unmatched in the world, and the life of the person very, very inconsequential.

  16. Solar Sentinel (PL10/11)

    (This is a PL10 rebuild of Solar Sentinel) Player Name: Thunder King Character Name: Solar Sentinel Power Level: 10 (160/161) Trade-Offs: -4 Defense/+4 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 1 In Brief: Cosmically empowered immortal veteran of an interstellar war Alternate Identity: Henry William Mason Identity: Secret Birthplace: Adolphus, Kentucky Occupation: Firefighter Affiliations: Freedom City Fire Department, the Zarnashi Military Family: None Description: Age: 121 (DoB: January 18th, 1896) Apparent Age: 35 Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 6'3" Weight: 230 lbs Eyes: Gray Hair: Brown Henry is tall and broad shouldered, with a ruggedly handsome face, and stern features. He looks reasonably young, but anyone who sees into his eyes will see the age in them. He keeps his hair short and walks upright. He favors work pants and button up shirts, claiming to feel naked in t-shirts. He also favors leather shoes and boots, having a dislike for sneakers. Henry's costume is blue and gold, designed to look sleek and fast even when it's not in motion. Power Descriptions: Henry's cosmic energy manifests as a brilliant blue, though for certain things he can suppress the glow, such as using his normal flight or super-strength. The exact manifestations of this energy follow; Blast: Henry's blasts are manifested as blue bolts of energy, slightly resembling flame. Flight: When Henry flies, it manifests as a slight blue aura. When he's pulling power from his cosmic array, it produces a blue contrail that follows after him. Super-Strength: When accessing his array to enhance his strength, Henry's glow intensifies relative to the effort he needs to put forth. Healing: The recipient of his healing also glows slightly when affected by it. Extra Effort: The higher his energy output is, the more flame-like the manifestations become. History: Henry was born in Kentucky to a poor farm family. His father and mother both died early in his life, leaving him orphaned at 12 years old. At 16, he lied about his age and joined the US Army, where he served until the end of WWI, serving with distinction as a Non-Commisioned Officer. He was discharged honorably in 1920, and settled down in Freedom City. It was in 1922, however, that everything changed. One night, a friend of his invited him to stay out with him in the country, at his home in rural Pennsylvania. He never got there. Instead, an alien space craft captured him for study, crewed by members of the Zarnashi race. They were planning on sending him back after their tests, but they spotted an enemy vessel on their sensors. In their haste to escape the enemy craft, they accidentally brought their passenger, Henry, with them. Over the next few months, it was increasingly evident that war was inevitable between the Zarnashi and the Makh'rell peoples. Unable to go home, Henry became an ally of the Zarnashi race. A few months later, he found himself on a brand new space craft with an experimental FTL drive. The drive's core ended up with a massive breach. Selflessly, Henry helped everyone escape from the room, but he himself was trapped. The damaged drive bathed him in cosmic energy. The Zarnashi were surprised to find that he was not only alive, but far more powerful. He willingly joined the war against the Makh'rell race, becoming a respected and feared member of their military. However, the war dragged on for years. Henry fought for 88 years in a war that wasn't his own. Once the Zarnashi had secured peace, however, there was no reason to keep such an oddity among their ranks. And so, with his permission, they dropped him back on Earth with a few key supplies. Little did he know how much the world had changed. He managed to get enough help to set himself up again, with a new job; firefighter with the Freedom City Fire Department. However, after years of fighting, he found himself having a hard time adjusting to society. So, he decided to make himself a costume and start a new war; a war on crime. He'd never take another life again, but fighting is all he knows, and all he has. Personality & Motivation: Immortality has taught Henry a great deal about life, death, and survival. He has the long view on life, but also knows to cherish life's pleasures. Honor is very important to him. He considers his word paramount, and is reluctant to give it unless he knows he can live up to it. He fights crime because fighting is all he knows. He feels that he's seen too much blood, and will neither take a life, nor neglect to save civilians. Powers & Tactics: He uses the same tactics now that he did in the war; hit them fast, hit them hard. He makes ready use of move-by-action, charging in to blast, hitting them fast and moving out of range. When pressed, he has no problem closing distance and hammering at the opposition until it breaks. His powers leave little room for finesse or subtlety, but he's just fine with that. Complications: Secret: Identity. Nobody knows that Henry is a superhero, he likes it that way A Stranger In His Own Land: He's lived in space for most of his life. Earth, especially modern Earth, is so different that he won't get pop culture references and doesn't understand modern social norms very well. Child of Battle: He's been fighting for so long that sometimes he chooses to fight when he might have gotten away with a nonviolent solution. Blood on his hands: Henry is responsible for the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands of sentient beings, this does not sit well on his concience. The Bloody Stranger: During the war, Henry had a bit of a reputation for being a ferocious and nigh-unkillable warrior. Sometimes this reputation gives him problems when dealing with extra-terrestrials. New War, New Responsibilities: Recent cosmic events have dragged Henry back into combat in space. He is finding himself more involved in events out in space than ever before.

  17. Gaian Knight (PL15)

    Gaian Knight Power Level: 15 (250/250 pp) Trade-Offs: -3 Defense / +3 Toughness Unspent PP: 0 In Brief: Professor given powers over the earth by unknown forces, just out to do some good in the world. Alternate Identity: Tarrant David McLeod Identity: Secret Birthplace: United States, West Coast Occupation: Professor of Earth Sciences, Freedom City University Affiliations: Sanctuary, Freedom City University, The Freedom League Family: Parents (west coast), Brother (location unknown; estranged) Sidekick: Tiamat Description: Age: 33 (DoB: October 1984) Gender: male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 6' Weight: 190 lbs. Eyes: green (now flecked with gold) Hair: brown A tall man seeming to be in his late twenties to early thirties, Tarrant's quite fit but not overly muscular - he looks more like someone who spends a lot of time outdoors than someone who hits the gym five days a week. Short brown hair tops a strong, charming face with amused green, gold-flecked eyes. Left to his own devices he trends towards simple, durable clothing (jeans, simple t-shirts or button-ups, unadorned jacket), but dresses up a bit more for teaching (button-up shirt, vest, tie, and slacks). No matter what he's wearing, his footwear is practical - when asked, he generally offers something vague about personal comfort and the stride of his walk. His heroing gear seems serviceable but a little slapdash: black fingerless gloves, heavy brown boots, dark jeans, dark red cloth over his mouth and nose, and a long brown hooded coat. Only three items are truly notable: first, a dull metal platemail chestpiece under the coat, apparently designed with an eye towards flexibility; second, a pair of round goggles completely obscuring his eyes; and third, an antique-looking but well-cared-for sword which never leaves his side. Power Descriptions: Gaian Knight leverages the abundant nearby earth for his effects, moving or reshaping it to his own ends - attacking from various angles to surprise his enemies or strike from around cover. As a hobbyist sculptor he takes a bit of pride in the appearance of his creations, and while not flamboyant he always adds his own artistic touches when able. As his power is instinctive and rooted to his being he doesn't need to gesture or invoke his magic, per se, and he's perfectly capable of directing his attacks with both hands in his pockets and both feet firmly on the ground. Still, a little dose of dramatic hand-movement now and again doesn't hurt one's focus. His powers often causes a noticeable earthy-golden glow that becomes more and more apparent as he takes larger and larger actions, starting around his hands, then his eyes, and finally his whole body (and any rock nearby). Though he rarely notices, long-term use of his power leads to small rocks orbiting him or following him around through the air. History: Young grad student Tarrant McLeod lived a pretty ordinary life up until a friend of his - an archaeology student - called him up to help with a huge, unlikely cave they'd unearthed near an old ruined city. Upon entering and touching a distinctly out-of-place pedestal of polished stone he was transported to an unknown, seemingly endless plane of earth where a floating vision of a woman in flowing robes spoke to him in broken sentences and half-formed images, part of some ancient recording or ceremony; she called him the Gaian Knight, charged him with protecting "the sword", and implied the purpose of this place was to empower a defender for the surrounding city when it was at the height of its grandeur. When returned to the cavern he found he'd been linked into the earth: he could feel the stone around him, shape it, move it. He also found a sword and scabbard on the altar where there had been none and, unconsciously compelled to take it with him, made his way back outside more confused than enlightened. Since then he's spent quite a bit of time learning to control his power, and took advantage of his new abilities and intuition to complete his schooling in record time. Offered a teaching job at Freedom City University, he finally feels like he's in a place in life where he can apply what he's learned...in more ways than one. Personality & Motivation: Tarrant is, at his core, just a fundamentally nice person; the boy scout, the nearly-literal salt-of-the-earth type who genuinely likes teaching and helping others. This is arguably his greatest strength as a hero - the ability to believe in others, to trust in doing the right thing, to have the conviction to take a third option when the options presented are terrible - but it also leaves him somewhat naive and overly-trusting. He isn't stupid, mind you (he is, technically, Doctor Tarrant), and he's too experienced to set himself up for a knife in the back, but he fundamentally wants to believe that people are fundamentally good, and that isn't always a safe assumption when confronting villainy. Given the option, Tarrant will always do what's right, even if it isn't easy. He's friendly, affable, and unimposing with a noted dislike of violence, but anyone who tries to push him too hard is going to find out that he's as much mountain as man when he needs to be. Powers & Tactics: With his determination and power-reinforced body, Tarrant tends to be the proverbial immovable object in a fight: he won't walk heedless into danger, but if necessary he will stand and take his licks while giving as good as he gets. He's an experienced hero but no master strategist or tricky fighter - he tends to fight as simply and as effectively as he can while minimizing the outright damage he's doing to most opponents and the environment. Complications: Honor (Chivalry): Respect and honor; he's not an old-school knight, but nevertheless tries to hold to a code of behavior that isn't always to his advantage. Tarrant is unlikely to pick a fight without threat of immediate danger, he leans toward inaction if too unsure of the negative consequences, and he's quick to offer clean surrender or a chance at someone's redemption. Responsibility: Professor. He tries to arrange his schedule (and the assigned homework!) as best he can, but he does have students to help and classes to teach. Secret: Identity. Teleportal: Tarrant's portals require an anchor: he can only create a portal to somewhere he's already set up a special anchor stone, usually in the form of an archway. No anchor, no portal - and destruction of any anchor prevents him from opening a portal to that location until he can get there some other way to fix it. Time and Tide: Tarrant isn't immune to aging, exactly - even the greatest mountains erode over time. He does, however, age very, very slowly - sufficiently powerful aging effects or the like will affect him, just far less than they might otherwise.

  18. Gyrfalcon (PL10)- TheThirdWay

    Player Name: TheThirdWay Character Name: Gyrfalcon Power Level: 10 (150/150 PP) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: +4 Attack, -4 Damage/+2 Defense, -2 Toughness In Brief: A cowl who plays the role to the hilt while in costume, but couldn't be more different in his secret identity. Alternate Identity: Riley Reed (Secret) Birthplace: Freedom City Residence: Downtown Freedom Base of Operations: The Nest (a quiet warehouse in Freedom) Occupation: Head of Reed Applied Technology's Consumer Product Division Affiliations: None yet Family: Noah Reed (Father) Claire Reed (Mother) Nicole Washington (Older Sister) Sean Reed (Older Brother) Marcus Reed (Older Brother) Description: Age: 24 (June 1993) Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'9" Weight: 150 lbs Eyes: Green Hair: Dark brown Riley sports a thin, wiry build, on a frame of average height. He typically keeps his dark brown hair in a close crop. His clean-shaven, soft-featured face give him a slightly younger appearance. While he is out on the town, he prefers to wear loose-fitting hipster fashion or businesswear. When patrolling as Gyrfalcon, Riley sports a costume that fits the form of his body closely but takes great pains to hide his face. The costume itself is primarily black with silver accents that give off a dull shine, plus a matching cape. He also wears a cowl with a visor that conceals the upper half of his face and comes to a point over his nose. History: Riley is the definition of a trust fund baby. He was born to two rich families and grew up living a charmed life. Born to the founders of Reed Applied Technologies, his parents afforded him every opportunity to succeed in life. Whenever he or any of his siblings took an interest in something, his parents were more than happy to fund their newest hobby. The Reeds had planned to pass their business interests along to their children, but Riley had little interest in technology or business management. Over his formative years, he developed a love for gymnastics and a fondness for kitschy detectives novels, but little in the way of what could be called "marketable skills." While he attempted to work his various hobbies into a paying career, he eventually settled for his predestined role in the family business. He was allowed to manage a small portion of Reed Applied Technologies. It was a successful and cushy position, but Riley felt dissatisfied regardless. Feeling as though he had nothing to actually contribute to the business left him unfulfilled, and left him looking for ways he could build something of his own and to do good. As a Freedom City native, it seemed only natural that his attention would eventually be drawn to superheroes. While he didn't have any powers or any great expertise to fall back on, he looked to the many cowls of the past as examples and asked himself, "If they can save the city with just gadgets, why can't I?" He spirited away some of his personal savings for the outfit, motorcycle, and hideout, and requisitioned some Reed technology for the rest of his gear, and designed a personality the shadowy detectives that he admired. He spent the first several months of his super career intently researching and training in the skills he'd need as a crime fighter, going on patrol in Freedom essentially as a means of training and rehearsing his new persona, and seeking training in martial arts including aikido and taekwondo. He's only recently become relatively comfortable with the superhero lifestyle and has begun nailing down his Gyrfalcon persona, leading to his willingness to take on bigger criminals and generally make himself known. Personality and Motivation: While outside of the costume, Riley is a bright and happy-go-lucky, always willing to crack a joke or have a good time. He's deliberately created the opposite personality for his Gyrfalcon persona, behaving in a dark and intimidating manner. Beneath it, he feels that his role as Gyrfalcon is his great calling in life, and throws himself completely into it to savor both the feeling of doing good, and the satisfaction that comes with Gyrfalcon's fame. Powers and Tactics: Riley knows he is likely to be outclassed in a straight fight, so he prefers the stealthy approach, which also complements the "I am the night" personality he's attempted to cultivate. While he takes the time to plan out his battles before engaging, he prefers to finish them in the most impressive manner he can. Power Descriptions: Lacking any proper powers, Riley prefers his gadgets to follow the aesthetic of entertainment tech, sleek and chromed. He's not picky as long as it's sufficiently flashy and matches the costume. His boomerangs, which he has dubbed "Raptorangs," are shiny chrome and are designed like stylized birds. His motorcycle is the same shade of black as his costume, with a large, swooping panel over the front resembling his costume's visor. His HQ is a more recent investment, and is kept simple and spartan. Complications: Fortune and Glory: He professes to be above it, but Riley adores the limelight that superheroing brings.. He can be easily tempted by the potential for glory and fame. No, But I Play One On TV: Riley is still establishing his super-identity. He may, especially when stressed, switch to his normal wisecracking behavior while in his Gyrfalcon persona, or behave in the dark and quiet manner of Gyrfalcon while living his day-to-day life. Legitimate Businessman: Riley can't devote his entire working life to superheroing without arousing some suspicion. He needs to take time away from the costume to run his business on occassion, a fact which he isn't thrilled with. Awkward Teenage Years: Riley's early period as Gyrfalcon, before he had built up his skills and demeanor, aren't very far behind him. He will occasionally run into someone he encountered during his beginner days, meaning they may think of him as his former, more bumbling self.

  19. Brigandine (PL 7) - Raveled

    Player Name: Raveled Character Name: Brigandine Power Level: 7 (110/110PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: The latest heir to an ancient legacy. Alternate Identity: Ami Jennifer Rask-Martel Identity: Secret Birthplace: Lyon, Rhone-Alps, France Occupation: Student, superhero Affiliations: Claremont Academy, Rask Aeronautics, Martel Industries Family: Walter Rask-Martel (Father), Brigitte Rask-Martel (Mother), Caroline Rask-Martel (Older sister), Jack Rask-Martel (Younger brother), many more. Description Age: 18 (April 1999) Gender: Female Ethnicity: Danish-French-Swiss Height: 5' Weight: 90 lbs Eyes: Green-gray Hair: Black, dyed blonde Ami Rask is a little slip of a girl, skinny enough that she looks even younger than she is, with a boundless energy and an enthusiasm for life that shines through in everything she does. She hair is long and straight and naturally dark but dyed a honey-blonde color. Her eyes are green-grey and bright and usually open very wide. Most of the time Ami is dressed in simple, elegant dresses and skirts in solid colors or complex patterns. She's a stickler for cleanliness and will usually check her clothes once or twice an hour for stray hairs, fuzz balls, or uncut threads. When Ami knows she's going into combat, she wears a jumpsuit designed by Martel Industries to maximize her psychic potential. It's grey-black, with large circles of channeling material over her chakra points and lines connecting them all. When she pushes her powers to the max, she lights up like a fiber-optic Christmas tree, but it helps to keep her powers under control. Her telekinetic 'suit' is a large, vaguely human-looking form with trunk-like legs and arms. Power Descriptions: Ami can create telekinetic fields that she layers around herself, creating an energy suit. While the suit is active, she is in the center of a ten-foot tall vaguely humanoid figure, with huge arms and legs and fingers. The suit is created from her will and her mind, so it reacts to her emotional state; when she's angry it may develop spikes and long, jagged claws. When she's scared it may become sleeker, more compact, more able to hide. When she's showing off it will gain a more defined and more clearly feminine form. History: Ami Rask has always lived in interesting times, and loved every minute of it. Her family is wealthy; about the same time as her parents married, Walter's engineering firm was brought under the wings of Martel Industries. So Ami and her two siblings were born into the Martel family, with the usual high standards Martels demanded of all their family members. Ami approached every test with zeal and elan, and even when she failed she came through it with a smile. Even from a young age, there didn't seem to be any limits to her courage or her desire to explore, and when she started moving things with her mind she accepted the new training with open arms. Soon, in addition to her regular schooling, Ami found herself given more specialized instruction and inducted into some of her family's secrets. She already knew the Martels traced their line back to Charlemagne; she didn't realize that the family had spent centuries battling to protect civilization. Now that Ami had some of the very special skills that the Martels had cultivated over generations, she would be expected to take a more active role in their fight. Despite the danger and difficulty of the drills, Ami approached every day with new enthusiasm and progressed through the training with speed. At the same time, her cousin Eve Martel was learning things at the Claremont Academy that she never could have understood if she stayed under the family's protective wing. Sage was one of the most effective soldiers the line of Charlemagne had ever produced, and the decision was made to enroll Ami in the school. After graduating from Claremont Ami moved west. Rask Aeronautics has recently opened a design and manufacturing plant just outside of Beldam and has leased space just outside the city for its offices. Ami has a very junior position in that branch while she takes college classes online, slowly progressing towards an MBA. At the same time she's living in a bohemian apartment in Terminal Drive. She's the first sign of gentrification in the city, but since she's genuinely French her neighbors tolerate her. Personality & Motivation: Ami Rask is a gregarious woman, always upbeat and outgoing. She loves meeting new people, trying new things, going new places, and she very rarely says 'no' to anyone. She works hard to keep an upbeat outlook no matter what the situation may be; even if things seem bleak, she is always looking for the silver lining and trying inject as much positivity into a situation as she can. Ami is intensely aware of her family's place, as the heirs of Charlemagne and longstanding protectors of the world. More specifically, she tries to live up to the standard set by her aunt, Eve Martel. While not everything the intense young Martel has done is openly discussed even within the family, she knows that her aunt has become a respected hero in Freedom City. Her name her family is a challenge to live up to, but her aunt is an example to emulate. Powers & Tactics: Brigandine isn't very subtle in her approach. She gets into melee distance to the most dangerous enemy on the field and engages them directly, wrestling them if she thinks she can overpower them with brute strength, or else keeping them busy so any allies she had can deal with other threats. If an enemy is keeping away from her, she can use almost anything lying around the battlefield as an effective javelin, or close the gap with a powerful leap. If she can, she likes to sneak up close beforehand to guarantee that she can start the fight by immobilizing the biggest threat Complications: Secret The decision was made a long time ago to keep Charlemagne's legacy a secret from the world at large. Ami strives to keep that secret, which means she has to keep her own superheroic activities a secret. Thrill Seeker Ami will try anything once, the more dangerous the better! She might choose an unsafe action simply because it's more thrilling. Psychosomatic Backlash The suit is a psionic projection, and while Ami is protected inside of it what affects the suit can affect her. Major physical damage to the suit could translate to her own body, i.e. if the suit's arm is cut off Ami might not be able to use that arm. Rousseau Was Right, You Know Ami can be idealistic, and if an enemy tries to surrender she'll probably accept it. This means ruthless foes can take advantage of her better nature. Agent of Charlemagne As a Martel, Ami may be called upon to undertake special missions for her family's mission. This could lead to a conflict of interest with other superheroes, even her friends.

  20. Spitfire PL11 - Eviscerusnox

    Spitfire Power Level: 11 (167/168PP) Unspent Power Points: 1 Trade-Offs: +2 Defense / -2 Toughness In Brief: First Class White Trash, fire breathing Carnie! Theme: "Firestarter" The Prodigy Alternate Identity: Maxwell "Maxie" Compton, AKA: Max the Fire Eater, AKA: Maxie Napalm Birthplace: Back of a Pinto on the side of the highway in Texas Occupation: Owner/Operator of Fire Eater Ink Affiliations: Family: Description: Age: 25 Apparent Age: Early 20's Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'8" Weight: 146 Eyes: Red Hair: Bald (normally black) Description: Maxie likes tattoos, a lot. Both his arms, back and chest are covered in them. On his left arm there's a long chinese type dragon who's mouth ends at his write, breathing fire up his hand to his fingertips. On his right arm there's a similar dragon, but this one done in the style of H.R. Geiger, breathing black fire. The tattoos on his chest are more varied, including some less than clad women and mermaids, a flaming skull, a number thirteen with some dice and playing cards around it, as well as some script circling his navel reading: Walk Through the Fires of Hell and Come Out Clean. The tattoos on his back are a bit more ordered than his chest. On each shoulderblade there are tattoos of bat wings and down the center of his back there's a tattoo that looks like his skin has been burned and slashed open, and beneath the skin there's a red dragon. Maxie's eyes have turned red as an effect of his mutation, which only helped him fit into the carnival business better. His smile is surprisingly dazzling his skin is well tanned. History: Maxie was born to poor rednecks who moved and lived along the Rio Grande. Being unable to afford to take care of a child, they sold him to a travelling carnival that took an interest in him because of his red eyes and pointed dazzling teeth like fangs. Growing up among carnies taught Maxie many lessons most children don't recieve, such as how to lift someone's wallet, how to play a crowd, how to clean up after elephants, and how to take his turn on high flying trapeze. For the first few years of his internship, Maxie did little more than clean and run errands. Knowing no other way to live, Maxie loved his life in the carnival, the adventuresome spirit lended well to life on the road, and Maxie loved seeing new places. When the carnival (the carnival was named Deedra's Travelling Menagerie) finally got it's very own fire eater, Maxie was immediately drawn to the man. His tattoos and amazing abilities related to fire seemed to speak to Maxie, and so he became the man's apprentice. The fire eater was named Bertram Firebrand, or at least that's what he said, and he had a very easy manner and a soft voice, which belied his abilities that seemed so fantastic and uncommon. Bertram wasn't only a fire eater, he also walked on hot coals, walked into a specially made furnace and came out unscathed, basically any trick that involved fire, Bertram did, and also taught to Maxie. One day, while practicing in the fire chamber, the contraption malfunctioned, usually a sheet of fire was only displayed on the outer side of the chamber, the rest of the chamber remained free and ventilated, but the pilot light blew, causing fire to fill the chamber with Maxie inside. Maxie was horrified and screamed, sure that he was to be burned alive. He heard shouting outside the tank, as Bertram and others were trying to get him out, and he prayed they wouldn't be too late, or he wouldn't be too badly burned. Ten seconds passed, and still Maxie felt nothing. He reasoned that his nerve endings had been burned shut, closing his body off to the pain, which was fine by him. His hair and eyebrows had already been singed away, that he knew, still he refused to open his eyes, afraid they would burst and boil from the heat. After about thirty seconds of raging flames and building pressures, the tank exploded, and Maxie went flying out. Maxie landed against a nearby elephant and was knocked unconcious. He awoke some time later, with his friends, and Deedra, standing over him. Maxie feared the worst, but they were all smiling and congratulating him on the greatest trick they'd ever seen. Only Bertram looked concerned. Apparently Maxie was unscathed, not a burn on him. This puzzled Maxie, but when everything had settled down, Bertram pulled him aside and told him of his suspicions. Bertram believed Maxie was a metahuman, and the tank had triggered his talents. Maxie found this preposterous, but no other logical explanation remained. After a few private tests, Bertram and Maxie learned that he could breath fire, as well as withstand any intensity of flame. Maxie was excited and frightened, all at the same time. He could really breathe fire! Bertram considered his new powers for weeks, and when the carnival arrived in Freedom City, Maxie took his leave of the carnival, with his pay in hand, and decided to make a new life as a hero in the greatest city in America! ... It's been 9 years since Maxie came to Freedom City. He's done his share of heroing, helping out when needed, but the itch to travel got him good after a couple years, so he took his earnings from Fire Eater Ink and went on the road. Mostly he roamed, sometimes, when caught in the middle of some terrible situation he did the hero thing, but mostly he tried to stick to himself. He even, for a small amount of time, rejoined the travelling carnival gig, though he relegated himself to mostly running the rides and not doing the fire eater tricks. Reminded him too much of Bertram. After some years of this he started feeling homesick. A feeling he didn't really recognize at first since he'd never really had a home before Freedom City. He missed the people, the hustle and bustle of big city life, and he missed his ink shop. Everytime he heard or read about some disaster befalling the city he felt like he was abandoning it and it's people. Oh sure, there were plenty other heroes there to answer the call, but that didn't stop him from feeling responsible. On little more than a whim, Maxie packed up his trailer and headed back to Freedom City. Back to his home. Personality & Motivation: Maxie is an upbeat, fast talking boy, and always seems to see the good side of things. Growing up with freaks and misfits has made Maxie extremely accepting, and judges few based on their appearance or background. This trait has also made him develop a seething hatred for bigots and racists. Maxie believes no matter what you look like, or what differences or deformities you have, you can make a difference, and so seeks to be a hero to make the most difference. He does not think less of those who, like he did before, made a difference simply by aweing a crowd, or making someone smile. Powers & Tactics: Maxie can breath fire and can skate across the ground at high speeds while melting it with his breath. He is relatively new to the heroing business so his tactics are pretty straightforward, first he'll go in with his flame blast, after attempting to catch the target unawares. After that he'll continue to blast away till whatever it is goes down. Power Descriptions: The color of the fire maxie breaths is usually your normal reds, yellow and oranges, but if he decides to really turn up the heat the fire will turn white. Other than that it's fire, and behaves mostly like fire, as much as it can coming from a human's mouth.

Catchphrase: Faster than a scalded haint! Theme: “Live Wire” by Motley Crue Alternate Identity: Colt McCay (Public) Birthplace: Claude, TX Residence: Claremont Academy Campus. Occupation: Student at Claremont Affiliations: Claremont Academy Family: The whole McCay clan as is custom in the south. Problem is he lives so far away now, in the big city that it’s hard to stay in touch. Description: Age: 16 (DoB: 2011, March, 14th) Apparent Age: 16. Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian. Height: 5’9” Weight: 122 lbs Eyes: Brown Hair: Red Colt is so thin and wiry you’d swear he was made by throwing play dough on a stick figure made of copper wire. His hair is in a constant state of unkempt and is a deep true red, not orange like most redheads tend to be, it hangs to his shoulder, and mullets so naturally you’d expect it’s a genetic predisposition. Colt dresses in jeans, t-shirt (which usually sports the logo of some long forgotten 80’s hair band) and sandals when not in school uniform. Colt is always smiling, and despite having little to no experience with dentists his teeth are perfect and white. He sports a pretty deep tan that only appears on his arms and up to his knees. History: It is a well known fact that in places like Claude, TX kids who have little to do will do their best to get into trouble. For Colt, that always involved doing something fast, and dangerous. He’d often “borrow” his older brother Bo’s ’85 IROC Z Camaro and take it for a ride. Highway 287 had long strips of flat curvy two lane highway perfect for adrenaline junkies that Colt made frequent use of, but his real love was a turn in the city limits called “piss corner.” It was a dirt/gravel turn onto 1st street that everyone took too fast and almost no one had ever taken without spinning out and hitting the Bannister fencing. Colt was one of the few who could handle it, or so he thought. On one of those times he was borrowing Bo’s ride, he took the corner at 60, and being only 15 and not what one would call versed in the ways of physics, Colt had no idea that there’s zero chance he could make it out of that turn without rolling the car. When the car began to rise off of it’s left wheels the world slowed, and Colt’s world became white. An instant later he’s standing outside of the car, watching it tumble end over end through the Bannister’s fence and into their minivan. Once his sense came back to him he took a step towards the wreck and found himself careening into the mangled mesh of automobiles and luckily bounced off with only a few bruises. After some careful experimentation, he was able to walk at a normal speed again, and was able to control both the speed of his feet and the speed of his thought. He was fast. Greased lightning got busy with a rocket sled and had a baby kind of fast. Colt smiled, he knew he was in for the beating of his life from Bo. But Bo would have to catch him first! After some talk with Ma and Pa and the rest of the family, they scraped enough money together to get him to Freedom City and into Claremont Academy. With the help of some grants from rich folk and a scholarship he's able to live on campus rather comfortable like. If he needs extra work money, he could always spend an afternoon building a house or something! Firmly entrenched in Freedom City and the academy. Colt passes the time learning about his new powers and learning about things like Physics in school. Now he gets why that turn was impossible to make! Now if he were to just try it at 58 mph, how would that work out, he thought? Personality & Motivation: Colt is a good, kind kid, if a bit reckless. He’s an adrenaline junkie through and through, and his mutation only feeds into that by feeding him more endorphins and more speed the faster he goes. That being said it’s not just about the thrills for him, he wants to help people especially those who don’t have a lot, like he didn’t growing up. This is why he finds it rewarding living in The Fens. Even big cities have their poor folk, and he knows from poor folk. Powers & Tactics: Though relatively new to his powers, growing up with little else to do, Colt knows how to scrap, and he also is relatively smart, able to adapt his powers to do new things other than just punch things real fast. He is a voracious reader and has read and retained thousands of books, whole libraries even, and can often use this information in esoteric ways to help him from time to time. Power Descriptions: Waves of heat radiate off of Colt when he’s using his powers like a desert mirage (it’s the friction) and when moving he is a green and white blur (as those are the colors of his costume). His speed is mutation based and partially due to an extremely overenlarged and overactive adrenal gland, hence his thrillseeking. Complications: Adrenaline Junky: Colt loves to go fast, and basically will do any reckless thing to live on the edge and feed his need: the need for speed! Motor Mouth: Colt tends to forget that others don’t think or act as fast as him and will find himself talking at a pace that no one could comprehend. To top it off, it sounds like a high pitched electrical whirring/whine when he does this, so it’s more than a little annoying. Act First Think Later: Colt doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about what he's going to do beforehand, or the consequences of his actions.

  22. Vitalus - PL12/14 - Sandman XI (Silver)

    Player's Name: Sandman XI Character Name: Vitalus Power Level: 14 (213/215) Tradeoffs: Undercapped, PL12 (0 Attack, 0 Save, +1 Toughness, -1 Defense) Unspent Power Points: 2 In Brief: A former hero looking to get back into being a hero. Residence: Riverside Base of Operation: None Catchphrase: "." Alternate Identity: Wesley Octavius Knight (birth name) Identity: Secret (mostly) Birthplace: Tunnel Hill, Alabama Occupation: body artist, business owner Affiliations: None Family: None, all passed or in the past. Age: 27 (born 13 December, 1989) Apparent Age: early twenties Gender: Male Ethnicity: African-American Height: 6 foot 6 inches (1.98 meters) Weight: 240 pounds (109kg) Eyes: green (due to mutation), brown (originally) Hair: black Wesley is a well-build man, with very defined muscle. A fighter's build. Swole arms, legs, and torso. His arms, chest, back and neck are covered with years with of inked art. Each one of them a personal memory (even if a few of those memories are 'this looks awesome'). His eyes are a vibrant green and have been so ever since his powers erupted forth. he loves his thick long dreadlocks and considers them a source of pride that he keeps them up so well. you can hear the southern inflect in his voice, even though he's been in Freedom for nearly a decade.Even though he's big, he does not walk like a big man. Almost always in thought about something and someone. When he's not doing that he like to sit or lean on walls. Never a straight stand. His clothing is urban wear baggy cargos, sandals, and an a-shirt when in public or when it's proper. He does love to show off his ink. His 'costume' is barely different. he throws on a brown hoodie on and ditches the sandals for work boots. Power Descriptions: Wesley's power set changes so much that even he thinks it's silly. The only thing constant is the glow. He glows dark green, gold, or purple when he uses his powers. All the ranged powers shoot of as shots of energy. If someone is under his powers effects they might even glow themselves. Not as bright as him, but definitely noticeable until it's done. History: Here for pre-Freedom City days When he got to his destination, it wasn't a cake walk. While he did have the job, it wasn't as good at it was made out to be. Sure everything was nice and the owner was a nice guy, but Wesley didn't get much being the new guy. So he poked around for side jobs where he could. There was a whole community around here! Riverside was great. Though his first big paycheck came from someone off the books. A woman who needed an intricate back piece done. She somehow new about his powers and knew he could stay up day and night if need be. Little did he know he was getting into Triad business. The woman, who only wanted to be known as 'Jade' taught him Mandarin as he worked. It was for his own good. By the time he was done (seven days? ten?) a whole boatload of gangsters came flooding in. This was the real deal, he had to protect himself and not hurt anyone. Jade was resting, but watching the whole thing. Of course, the was easy, a meta with biological powers versus normal guys (there were a bunch of them though, with hatchets!) Of course he survived and no one died. 'Jade' said that others who needed to know. She thanked him for being her 'Knight'. And that's how he got his first her name. Even though it was his last name. After that was one of the most disgusting things ever. A bunch of heroes gathered to fights some alien poo? He never found out what it was, but he and another (a machine kid) were the last ones to face down that piece of filth. That lead to more connections. The adventures start to blur after that. Only his time on the Knights of Freedom was the clearest out of it all (Avenger, Scarab, Divine, Grimalkin, Dr Archeville, others). By that time, he'd moved into his own place and with the money to buy a place in Riverside. It was small, but he had a following, both on the mundane and meta side. He tried, comically almost, his hand at the dating scene. It didn't work out. That and he was more absorbed in his work and art. By then he'd lost his way. doing more jobs for himself and his friends than focusing on the hero thing. And while that's not why he came up here, he always felt like it was his calling that he was ignoring. He even traveled a bit. Got his bachelor's degree in medicine. Still, the call of the hero beckoned him. Some times it even came to his front door! he was not callous. He helped what he could. Just never... OK enough's enough. He could ignore it no longer. The tug at his heart strings as the world almost drowned was too much. He was going to get out there and do something. He even took a (third after the short lived 'Life Knight') name. Vitalus! Personality and Motivation: Wesley is, well, quiet is an exaggeration. He does like conversation, he just never gets to talk. Not that he minds. He'll listen to anyone and answer in kind. He is a stand up guy and will rush to help if needed. All those years he was 'absent' was a misnomer. He was here, just in the background! He wants to step out of the back ground now. To do more than just hide in the shadow. To step up and take responsibility. Powers and Tactics: Wesley is a mix of range and melee. He'd prefer not to mix it up and shoot down his enemies in a nonviolent (as you can get with using bioenergy to blast others) way. But if it gets close range, he will flip on his signature Adrenaline Rush and quickly beat down his opponents with massive strength and speed. Complications The Job: Wesley owns and works at Knight's Ink body art shop. Tattoos and piercings are normal. But select clientele have special requests. As long as it's legal, Wesley will oblige them. The (kinda) Secret: While his new foray into the hero scene is that of a covered urban warrior, there are a handful of heroes villain and civilians that know his identity. Relationships: He is very friendly with his employees (and in fact won't hire someone if the crew disapproves). Ghosts!: Not that he fears them. Malevolent spirits are somewhat a sore spot for him as he cannot deal with them by himself. Warmth: Wesley leaves a faint heat trail that those with certain senses can see like a beacon.

    Player Name: Thunder King Character Name: Prism Power Level: 10 (150/157 PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent Power Points: 7 In Brief: Ordinary teenage girl with the power to summon color shifting energy constructs and blasts Alternate Identity: Hannah Cooper Identity: Secret Birthplace: Chicago Occupation: Student Affiliations: Claremont Academy Family: Jacob Cooper, father; Mary Cooper, mother; Jacob 'Jake' Cooper II, brother; Laura Cooper, sister; Ashley Cooper, sister; Peter Cooper, brother; Samuel 'Sammy' Cooper, brother Description: Age: 16 (DoB: February 24th, 1999 Gender: Female Ethnicity: Caucasian Height:: 5'2” Weight: 115 Eyes: Blue Hair: Brown Hannah is short, slightly out of shape, and somewhat nondescript. She has shoulder length brown hair that she keeps neat and out of the way. Most of her clothes are hand-me-downs from her sister Ashley, and thus a couple of years out of style and not fitted for her. What she's gotten for herself tend to be various hoodies, which she tends to wear unless the heat is too severe. However, she has bright blue eyes and a warm smile. Hannah's costume is light purple, loose and comfortable top and pants with a hooded cloak and a simple face mask. She also wears a tactical Kevlar vest her parents bought her before she went off to school and completes the outfit with a pair of sturdy, practical boots. Power Descriptions: Hannah produces blasts and constructs of colorful energy of a cosmic origin. For reasons she doesn't understand, she has no control over what the colors or patterns of her blasts are. The colors range from vivid and garish to muted and subtle, and she has no control over that either. The energy she produces can take the form of cloud-like formations to laser-like beams, but her constructs are consistently crystalline and translucent in appearance. History: Hannah Cooper was born the fourth of six children to a family in the suburbs of Chicago. Her oldest brother is a moderately successful professional football player, while her oldest sister is attending Harvard Law. While she has a loving family, she's always felt buried and overlooked. Her plan for her life was pretty typical, high school, college, marriage, children. The same kind of life she had always expected and wanted. In January of 2015, though, her powers awakened. She kept them a secret for the most part, but practiced with them whenever she could. She struggled between the typical life she'd wanted and her super powers. She had no interest in a life of heroism, but she felt a need to understand them. One night in April she traveled into the city of Chicago. It was dangerous, but she was driven to do it by her need to understand her powers. Her plan was to get in touch with a local hero. Hopefully someone that could help her understand her powers. The person who noticed her, Iron Maiden, couldn't help her, but she did have contacts. Iron Maiden's idea was to find a hero that could take Hannah under their wing and teach her how to use her powers. Iron Maiden promised to be in touch, and for three weeks, Hannah didn't know what was going on. When she received contact from Claremont, it was both better and worse than she expected. Part of her wanted to stay home, ignore her powers and live the life she expected. However, she felt drawn to understand her powers, and so enrolled. Personality & Motivation: Strictly speaking, Hannah doesn't want to be a superhero. She wants to learn how to use her powers and make sure they're controlled. However, in practice she would never walk away from people in need. She knows she can use her powers to help people. She's far more about helping people than punishing criminals, but she also knows her powers can hurt. Powers & Tactics: Hannah generally uses her constructs to control the battlefield, often isolating villains from potential victims. If she's alone, she uses blasts of energy to drop them quickly to end the fight with minimal harm and casualties. If she's working with others, she often uses her powers to support her allies. Complications: I don't know who this Prism is...: Her identity is not public knowledge, and she likes it that way. Um, no, not me: Hannah has a mild case of social anxiety disorder. When forced into the spotlight she is liable to make mistakes and seek to get away. Big Family: Hannah is the fourth of six children, this may cause her problems.
