  1. Player Name: Zatvair Character Name:The Ox Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: -2 Attack/+2 Damage, -2 Defense +2 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 5 In Brief: Giant Remote Controlled Robotic Defender. Residence: A Freedom City Junkyard Base of Operations: Fens Catchphrase: " Order Understood Commander" Alternate Identity: None Identity: I'am a Robot Birthplace: Freedom City Junkyard Occupation: Robotic Servant/ Protector of the Commander Affiliations: Commander T Family: Commander T Description: Age: 7 years old Apparent Age: Unknown Gender: None Ethnicity: Robot Height: 8 feet tall Weight: ( 2000 Pounds) Eyes: None Hair: None Standing at 8 feet tall the Ox towers over most people. With its large Steel Chassis its power Core looks like a large O on its chase while Next to it someone seems to have painted a black X which is why they call him Ox. The Head has two antennae that look like Horns. That glow as he gets'commands from Commander T. The Ox also looks like its had multiple paint jobs over its life time. While everything works perfectly. There are still plenty of Dents and bits of rust that seems too have been painted over on the OX. Inside many of its inner workings seem to be the combination of older parts and newer parts. The ox is quite literally a hybrid but ingenious use of second hand engineering and audio command controls. Power Descriptions: A number of powerful engines through out the OX power this mighty contraption of steel and metal the greater the task the Ox will literally roar to life as the twin Diesel engines custom built by the Commander roar to life from inside the Ox's Chest the greater the Task that's needed at hand. There is also two smaller Engines in each of the Ox's Fore arms for extra power when needed. While Much of the sound these engines make is muffled by the layers of steel and sound proofing from his armor a guttural hum can be heard when standing near Ox as he uses his powers. A very Simple Minded AI handles Commander T's commands as there received through audio. The AI really only has two laws of robotics it follows Protect The Commander and Follow the Commander's Commands. Inside the large Feet of the Ox is two twin Impulsion Rockets that are used to Fire The Ox into the air and then the Jet Turbines roar to life to allow the Ox to fly the only problem is when the Ox starts to fly its very loud. When he lands twin Impulsion dampeners will go off leave only cracks and small holes in the surface when the Ox lands which is also very loud. The Commander is trying to find a way to make it quieter but for now it works History: I was given life by my father creator, steward, and ,Commander T. I remember the first day I saw him he was much smaller then, but I have been his constant friend. I started life as a simple cable box built to record and play our favorite t.v. shows. The Commander decided I should be as impressive as the heroes on the shows we watched so he built me a body. My first body wasen't that amazing I admit but I remember when the older one called me ox because of my communication antennae looked like horns he said, The Commander was so in love with the name it quickly became my Moniker rather than my serial number. I found myself being content with this. My first incursion with The Commander was destroying cars in the yard of much junk, I'am told I'am very good at destroying cars. This continued every day and would consist of The Commander and I watching our favorite shows. Him outfitting me with something new than destroying cars. Ah good times until the Commander left for college, at this point I had grown into quite the large and powerful machine, I tried to follow him when he left but because of the amount of property damage caused I was ordered to remain in the Junk yard but, The Commander's Uncle gave me a job, Destroying stuff. It was a number of years later when The Commander Returned, it was after the other one I was told died, The Commander Seemed very different. When he returned he made modifications to me. Told me we are going to do what we did as kids said this time it means something. Now I serve as his Sidekick, in our constant battle against evil. Personality & Motivation: Ox overall is a very intelligent AI with a working knowledge of the world around him but he does take things quite literally. While he doesn't understand the Human Condition for the most part he means well. He has a brain much like a human and while very intelligent he has the maturity of a 7 year old at times. Ox does think he is a character in a show about stopping evil. Powers & Tactics: Following The Commander's Instructions is Ox main tactic but for the most part he can act on his own, without the commander. While Ox isn't a great fighter he is very good at destroying things. His powers Consist of Being Incredibly Strong Robot with Extend Arms and Being Tall. Complications: Name: The Ox can be quite trusting as he thinks everyone is very honest The Ox can't harm another creature without The Commander's INstructions The Ox's fighting style results in a lot of property damage Abilities: 24-10+4+4= 22PPStrength: 34 (+12)Dexterity: 10 (+0)Constitution: -10 (-)Intelligence: 14 (+2)Wisdom: 14 (+2)Charisma: 10 (+0) Combat: 16 + 16 = 32PPInitiative: +0Base Attack: +8 Grapple: +20 (28 With Elongation)Base Defense: +8Knock-back: -12 Saving Throws: 0 + 4 + 2 = 6PPToughness: +12 (Impervious 12)Fortitude: - ImmuneReflex: +4 (+0 Dex, +4)Will: +6 (,+2 Wis +4) Skills:[No Skills] Feats: 2PP Eidetic Memory Interpose Powers: 6+40+24+8+8 = 86 PP Elongation 8, [8PP] Immunity 40 (Fortitude saves, Mental effects), [40PP] Protection 12 (Extras: Impervious 12), [24PP] Super-Strength 4 (Heavy Load: 21.6 tons), [8PP] Super-Senses 8 (Blind-sight [radio, Acute,Extended,Communication Link (Commander T)][8PP] DC Block ATTACK RANGE SAVE EFFECT Unarmed Touch DC 27 Toughness Damage (Bludgeon) Totals: Abilities (22) + Combat (32) + Saving Throws (6) + Skills (0) + Feats (4) + Powers (86) - Drawbacks (0) = 150/150 Power Points The Commander Player Name: Zatvair Character Name: Carter Tvair Power Level: 10 (150/150) Trade-Offs: None Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Hometown robotic's prodigy looking to do some good. Residence: Freedom City Junkyard Base of Operations: The Fens Catchphrase: "I'am Commander T!!!!" Alternate Identity: Commander T Identity: Secret Birthplace: Freedom City Occupation: Junkyard Owner and Operator Affiliations: Ox and the Tvair Family Family: The Tvair's Description: Age: 19 years old Apparent Age: Young Adult Gender: Male Ethnicity: African American Height: 5'8 Weight: 180 Ibs Eyes: Brown Hair: Black A young African American wearing a Large Helmet in a full body suit that looks like its from sort of Sentai show. The Visor shifts between Yellow and Red as it makes calculations. The Helmet has two Horns and a Large T in the middle of the fore head part. The Suit for the most part is a tight fit other than the large protruding holster at the his hip that holds what looks like a large ray gun with a large amount of beeping lights. Power Descriptions: The Helmet and Suit are an interconnected device that allows The Commander to become invisible. While not invisible Commander T can be seen surrounded by a Yellow light surrounding him that originates from the horns on the helmet. The Inside of the helmet has a number of uses but its biggest one is it allows The Commander to control Ox without it Ox is just a big statue. Not totally defenseless The Commander does have a The T Ray a large 1920s looking blaster that fires bolts of light that will actually home in on there target. There is a Dial with 2 other settings one being the Flash light feature that not only gives light but also can blind and deafen people. Then the final feature allows The T Ray to turn into a solid light Mickey Mouse hand that can grab things History: Born to two loving parents but the odd thing was when he was 9 months old he had drawn his first blueprint for very simple machines. People say it comes once every ten generations but the child was a Bonified prodigy he built his first car with his dad when he was five. As Carter grew older he soon found his intelligence and over all love of engineering and machines set him apart from the other kids. So he began to build his own friend. That' how Ox was created at first a simple magic eight-ball and spare parts in his dad's garage he made a simple yes or no ball he would be constantly asking questions every Saturday he would make it a little smarter a little more intuitive. At age 12 Carter had built an actual think for itself AI in that magic ball, it was at this time Carter's love for machines in general prompted his parents to move to freedom city where they could send him to schools that could allow Carter to really grow where he could be with kids that matched his interests. But Carter never stopped working on his robot at age 16 he was headed to college OX at this point was a 15 foot tall walking behemoth of a machine. But he soon became constrained to the garage because one outing cost the family and the city a large amount in repairs. Luckily Carter's favorite Uncle took the robot in and even gave him a job so he could pay off the damages. Carter said his good byes and went to college. Where he soon learned the harsh realities of life. College to most is an institute of learning for Carter it became the place he hated more than any other forced to room with a skin head racist Carter grew to resent his school because of the bullying by Rodney his roommate until the day Rodney finally was able to make Carter quit. It made Carter run right back home luckily his Uncle had left him the Junkyard in his will "Saying Carter was the only kid he knew that could turn Junk into Miracles". His robot was glad to see him but Carter didn't care soon he became a introvert spending all his time by himself. But every day he saw his robot outside working in the Junkyard. For Ox the Junkyard was an adventure and every new piece of trash a new threat to the large scrapyard of a city he protected. In time it began to grow on Carter watching his Robot's good deeds, When the terminus invasion append that was Carter's wake up call. He built his own suit and told Ox were going to be heroes to. Personality & Motivation: Carter is much more cynical and Logical than the Ox which can come off like he's a jerk but really he means well and will try to do as much good as he sees possible Carter is realistic but his Robot's want to do good and the fear he saw on peoples faces and the fact he knows he could've helped with the invasion has him out there almost every night. Powers & Tactics: A number of Gadgets from force field to a Light Blasting Ray Gun that can also turn into a solid Hologram construct. and a Suit that can reflect light off of it to make one self invisible to the naked eye. Carter likes to mainly hang back and let Ox do the fighting while he does the talking. Complications: Name: I do have a Family I don't know what I'd do if one of them got hurt If this affects the Junkyard I'am going to stop this place is my uncle's memorial I can't leave Ox Behind !!!!!!

  2. The Ride PL 10

    The Ride Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: None In Brief: A mutant who is equally tough and flexible. Catchphrase: "Get ready for The Ride!" Theme: Alternate Identity: Ash Parker (Secret) Birthplace: Springville, Alabama Residence: Lewes, Delaware Base of Operations: Freedom City, New Jersey Occupation: Delivery Affiliations: Superheroes Family: Tiny, owner (is a cat). Martin Parker, father. Martha Parker, mother. Description: Age: 21 (DoB: 1996, February 14) Apparent Age: early twenties Gender: Fluid (he/him, she/her, they/them if you don't want to ask) Ethnicity: Half African-American, Half Caucasian Height: 5'6" Weight: 130 pounds Eyes: Purple Hair: Black Ash is very androgynous, with delicate features making them look much more softer than s/he is. Ash wears loose fit carpenter jeans and tshirts two sizes too large for them. The Ride wears a black leather body suit and a domino mask. History: Ash is an anomaly. One born with superpowers in their genetics. Throughout childhood s/he would see it in small amounts. Being 'naturally' athletic and acrobatic. S/He played sports (soccer and baseball), but what s/he really loved was dance. The freedom of movement encapsulated what s/he would grow into. Ash first encountered their full powers a few years ago, just after high school. A group of bigots wanted to know what Ash's 'real' gender was and attacked. The bigots tackled them down and thought they would remove Ash's pants. A surge of adrenaline hit Ash. S/He remembers smashing and dodging through the bigots until the group was knocked out. Ash had superpowers, but didn't know why or how it happened. S/He told their mother and father about the incident and they told them that there was a bigger world out there. S/He agreed. Taking the name X at first, s/he moved just out of town and designed a costume. For a few months they acted as a nightly guardian. S/He would take out muggers and thieves and smaller crimes. During the day, s/he would work temporary jobs. When Ash felt ready, s/he packed up their things and left their small town to go up north towards Freedom City. S/He Didn't go all the way up, settling in Delaware, right across the way from Freedom City. With this new life, double life even. In Lewes, s/he was Ash Parker. In Freedom City, s/he would be The Ride. Personality & Motivation: Ash is a sensual person. S/He enjoys the finer things in life. Good music, good food and drink. S/He loves to dance. It's like their favorite pastime. While Ash is particularly open about using their powers out of costume, s/he does not associate their heroic life with their 'normal' life. Ash works as delivery person in their out of costume persona because s/he's pretty fast. In costume, their priority is to protect innocents. Freedom City is a big step up, so s/he has to step up their game! Powers & Tactics: The Ride is fast and flexible, but also hits like a MAC truck, and could probably take a hit from said truck! The Ride uses their powers to knock out criminals with grace and power at the same time. Power Descriptions: Well, you really can't describe it other than Runs Fast with Speed. Jumps High with Leaping. Lifts Heavy Things and Hits Hard with Enhanced Strength and Super-Strength. Really Hard to Damage with Enhanced Constitution and Impervious Toughness. Ash and The Ride have no manifestations of their powers. Complications: Genderfluid: Ash does not feel comfortable in one gender. S/He may identify as female, male, both, or neither. May confuse or irritate bigots who believe elsewise. Human, Take Care Of Me: Ash has a cat named Tiny. No Relationships: Ash believes that s/he can't do that sort of thing in their normal life. Too many people aiming for the big target. It's why s/he's here now, to protect her parents. Two Lives: On top of having a secret identity, Ash lives a double life. S/He does not hide her powers in her normal persona. Everyone knows Ash Parker is not a superhero though!

  3. Mannequin 2.0 PL 10

    Mannequin Power Level:10 (153/153PP) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: ±0 Attack / ±0 Damage, -6 Defense / ±6 Toughness In Brief: A scientist who has lost it all and closed themselves off from the world literally. Catchphrase: Theme: Alternate Identity: Mannequin (Public) James Horridan(Secret) Birthplace:Freedom City Residence: Uptown Freedom City Base of Operations: N/A Occupation: Head of R&D for Vision Inc Affiliations: Vision Inc Family: His mother Mary,his boss Jimmy at Vision Inc. Description: Age: 27 DoB: 1990/23/3 Apparent Age: N/a Gender: Male Ethnicity:Caucasian Height:8,2ft Weight:365Pounds Eyes:N/A Hair:N/A Mannequin is made up of sleek alabaster white segmented joints joined together on ball joints, chains, and electromagnets. His face has near blank features sans the shallow indents where the eyes would be. The only remotely human thing still left of him is his brain inside his chest cavity, beyond that everything else is robotic. History: James Horridan cursed at the pain of getting out of his bed. For as long as he could remember his body has been all but broken. When he was born he was diagnosed with both Osteogenesis Imperfecta and hemophilia. His bones were paper and his blood ran like water. He grew up confined to his home having to treat every move he made with great care or it would be another injury. He couldn't go outside to play, couldn't ride a bike, couldn't do so many little things and it was all due to his flawed body. To stop himself from going crazy from being a prisoner to his body he learned. His parents were somewhat well-known scientists who brought him all the books he ever wanted and taught him the curiosities of the world and encouraged him to be an explorer and learn everything he could despite his limits. And so from the time of 7 years old to 18 years James devoured knowledge as it came. Quickly coming to be seen as an intellectual equal to his parents and their colleagues. The employer of his parents "Vision Inc" saw great potential in this young man and gave him the same job as his parents working in the research and development department. For one of the few times in his life James was happy. Finally he was able to strive for something despite his body holding him back. He finally had a chance to make a difference in the world. The next few years went in relative peace as James worked alongside his parents making breakthroughs through technology to keep the body alive in the worst kind of environments. With their technology they would finally be able to colonize the stars. This isn't a fairy tale this is real life and with it comes tragedy. On the verge of a long awaited breakthrough Vision Inc was raided by Hired Mercenaries. They wanted to steal what James worked to hard to achieve. James and his father tried to stop these dastardly men from ruining everything only to be repaid in kind with the father being shot and James getting thrown to the side. When James awoke he was in a hospital with his mother by his bedside. Just one look at his mom told him everything. The work was gone, his father was gone, and his spine was crushed rendering him in a wheelchair. James filled with outrage over how life keeps knocking him down no matter how hard he tries to get back up. Cursed how his life been destroyed. Cursed how he was too weak to do anything about it. Too weak to stop the criminals and save his father. Something clicked for him in his hysteria and he realized the problem isn't the world its with himself. He had tried to make the world a better place for everyone, tried to make everyone else better while he remained broken. If he was to truly help people he would need to stop being broken. He would need to fix himself before fixing the world. And so using the life insurance and the last will of his father James devoted all his time to fix what nature has mistaken. Life gave him broken bones? He removed it. Life gave him a bleeding heart? He removed it. When James was done with his "Improvements" He hardly resembled a man anymore, looking more like a store display mannequin that has gained a life of its own. James was happy with this as he can finally be his own person free of the chains of his damaged body. James now roams the streets helping others where any crime might be because as he puts it "Why dream big and fail when you can think small and achieve.". Personality & Motivation: Mannequin is a hero because ever since he was a child he wanted to make the world a better place. However due to his body he was limited and tried to help the world by being an inventor. This failed horribly and Mannequin decided to finally fix his body and help the world on a smaller scale and to enact justice for his deceased father. Due to being raised at home he hasn't had much social interactions leaving him with less than desired social skills. He is very intelligent and empathetic to those who are disabled and will try everything he can to make life better for those who are down. Powers & Tactics: Mannequin's main strength is that his only vulnerable part is his brain enclosed inside his chest, any harm to the rest of his body can easily be replaced/fixed. He is able move at high speeds using his Magnetic Drift and will be hard pressed to ambush thanks to his Radar capabilities. In a fight he will focus mainly on crowd control using his assortment of chemical compounds and his ability to manipulate the magnetic field. He prefers to attack from afar separating his limbs and launching them like rockets towards his foes bringing the pain and shocking them into unconsciousness. Any foe who tries to get near him will have to deal with flying metal objects, a colorless blinding, deafening haze, and globs of Adhesive Goo all buying Mannequin time to gain more ground away from his foe. Power Descriptions: The most obvious thing about Mannequin is his power. He looks like something straight out of a mad scientist's lair made up of several "pieces" all in a alabaster white chassis. He moves by use of electromagnets and chains making his movements seem unnatural. One would be pressed into thinking that Mannequin is a human. Complications: Unnatural Form: Mannequin has replaced his entire body but his brain with a humanoid construct that isn't restricted in the ways a human body is. Because of this people will usually not assume he is a person. and is just another machine leading them to have unfair treatment of him. Selfish Greed: Despises people who commit violence and harm for the sake of profit. Considers them to be the worst kind of people Blank Slate: Mannequin has a blank canvas for a face leading to the inability to make any facial expressions. This makes it hard when he is trying to display his emotions. Foreign Senses: Mannequin doesn't have conventional senses due to not have a "head". Instead He hears normally and sees via radar. If anything were to disrupt his radar he would effectively be rendered blind.

He also wears his personalised “Bushido” Trench coat, complete with a Katana motif on the back. Inside his trench coat he has a few more concealed weapons. Power Descriptions Whilst Ronin himself has no powers, his “Street Special” weapon has some rather elegant and impressive effects, namely: “Iron Fist” (a straightforward round) “Divine Wind” (a booming shotgun blast that knocks people off their feet) “Dragon’s Breath” (a short burst of blindingly bright fire), “Hornet’s Nest” (fills the air with buzzing shrapnel) and “Ogre’s Breath” (a smouldering smoky shell fills the air with dense smoke). History: Curtis grew up on one of the most deprived streets in Bedlam, Nancy Street. For all its problems, the Nancy Street residents stuck together and the “Nancy Street Crew” would always form to beat back organised crime or street thugs. Ronin came from a troubled household but his saving grace was his Grandmother, who despaired of her daughter and son in law but loved Curtis; teaching him akido and karate from a yound age. Curtis very smart kid. He did well at school, and would have gone far if the school and his home life was better; Aged 16, his good for nothing drug addled Father murdered his Mother. Bitter, angry and impatient to leave Nancy Street, he joined the army. Here, he learned discipline and excelled. After some time in the infantry he turned to engineering and bomb disposal. He became an expert in weapons maintenance, modification, and design. All that came to an end when he was caught by an IED in the Afghanistan. Left with a nice scar and concussion, he decided to leave. He respected his comrades in arms, but he didn’t really know what he was fighting for anymore. Ronin returned to Nancy street and found it in worse shape than ever. Most of the Nancy Street Crew had disbanded (or in a few cases, had been killed), and it was rife with drugs, thugs, and worse. The Police were of little use and sometimes worse than the street thugs, taking bribes, corrupt, and sometimes plain sadistic or racist. Moving into his Grandmothers house, he determined to do something about it: Dismantling the gangs on the streets, organised crime, and the corrupt in power. Naming himself Ronin, with his military, martial, and engineering expertis, he would be the honourable Samurai with no master… Personality & Motivation: Despite his tough upbringing (and Curtis is tough), Ronin has a strict code of honour. He won’t kill, he won’t maim, or torture. He meditates daily, and tries to ensure self-discipline. Thus, whilst he is not a forgiving man, and in some ways merciless, he is not sadistic or violent. He is not motivated by vengeance but by love for his friends, family, and neighbours. Whilst he operates outside the law (to bring down corruption) he actually has immense respect for the law (and its enforcers) when it works properly. Curtis has a selectively cynical attitude. He doesn’t believe the police or the government do much (if anything) to help the poorest or the most vulnerable. He does however believe in his fellow man, his family, his friends, the social worker, the youth worker, and Nancy Street (his home). Whilst he often operates alone, he believes that we are stronger together. He has an interest in Zen and the Shinto religion; for all his “street” credentials, he is a self-educated and philosophical man. Curtis is just as home repairing an automobile of a small businessman, fixing the Youth Centre computer, helping out in the soup kitchen for the homeless, or dropping off an OD’d drug addict to a medical centre. Powers & Tactics: Ronin / Curtis has no powers, but is an intelligent and physically capable man. He has extensive military and combat training and has been Practicing martial arts (mainly Akido and Karate) over twenty years. He has a number of self – designed / self – built paramilitary devices, the prime among them is his converted shotgun, the “Street Special”, a.k.a “Katana”. The Street Special is a rather short, elegant weapon. It has less raw stopping power than a regular shotgun, but is more versatile and reliable (and, importantly, non-lethal). Perhaps his greatest strength is his loyalty, honour, and pure will power. This is backed up by the support and respect he has in his neighbourhood. Complications: Bushido: To a greater or lesser extent, Ronin keeps to the Bushido traditions. Acting honourably, fearlessly, and with self-control or restraint. Often this is to his advantage (e.g. the fearless feat) but sometimes not so; for instance, he will struggle to “back down” or “retreat” – he may not start a hopeless fight, but once in one, he won’t run from it either. He would be reluctant to use his weapons against a (single) unarmed opponent (unless that opponent was super powered). Supply and Demand: Ronin doesn’t have any income. He relies on odd jobs (as a mechanic etc) which are cash in hand, the goodwill of Nancy Street, and “salvaging” (which includes taking what he needs from crooks he busts). This might mean he has problems replacing or repairing, or even reloading, his equipment. Brothers in Arms: Usually cynical, Ronin will have big respect for military men (or women). Particularly those in the front line (medics, infantry, etc), veterans, or old-timers. He has less, but still some, respect for commanders etc. He will be inclined to automatically trust and help such individuals (or those that can effectively pretend to have such a background). This attitude is also prevalent towards many super heroes and police – at least ones who have proved themselves as compassionate and honourable. Neighbourhood Watcher: Whilst a source of strength, Ronin also has a duty to protect Nancy Street, and to a lesser extent its neighbourhood and even Bedlam itself. He has a number of friends and family on the street that are dependants and sources of vulnerability (especially as his identity is essentially open). If his reputation is somehow marred, he will (at least transiently) lose his benefit feats. Outlaw(ish): Technically Ronin is a vigilante, wanted by the Police. However, given his reputation and lack of serious crime (e.g. no murder), opinion on this is divided amongst the police force. Some (the corrupt) want his head on a spike (before, figuratively, he wants theirs on one). Some view him with favour, and even covertly support him (like his sister), most take a pragmatic position in between; they should ideally arrest him, but frankly they have bigger fish to fry and if he occasionally brings in a crook, best not to ask too many questions.

  5. Prince Akkar PL9/10

    Player Name: EviscerusNox Character Name: Prince Akkar Power Level: 9/10 (in ship) (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: -1/2 Damage/ +1/2 Attack (PL9) (+2 Damage/ -2 Attack In Ship, PL10) Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Cybernetically Enhanced Illthusian Space Junk Dealer. Alternate Identity: Ak’Kar Kalmari Identity: Public Birthplace: Illthus Occupation: Space Junk Collector/Dealer, and Exiled Prince of Illthus Affiliations: none Family: None alive. Last surviving member of Royal Illthusian bloodline. Description Age: 38 Gender: Male Ethnicity: none Height: 6’1” Weight: 182 Eyes: Pearlescent Blue Hair: none Prince Akkar is a tall, slender Illthusian with lean muscles like that of a swimmer or runner. His skin color changes with his mood, but most of the time it is a pale white/blue as this is the preferred color of Illthusian royalty. He is typically found wearing a sleek, black space suit that looks like a mix between a clergy cassock robe and a neoprene wet suit with helmet. The helmet retracts into the neck of the suit when not in the vacuum of space or similar environment that required a breathing apparatus. Around Akkar’s neck is an amulet with the royal crest of Illthus, a symbol that has been banned by the Grue Unity, he keeps this tucked away under the suit or whatever clothes he’s wearing most of the time. Akkar’s face is covered in scars, especially around the cybernetic facial tentacles, and his back also bears the marks from the rough treatment of the Grue. Power Descriptions: Akkar’s cybernetic facial tentacles resemble his organic ones, but are segmented and a brushed steel color, the tips of them blossom open to reveal different tools depending on which he needs access to. The energy blaster tentacle glows blue on the end. The stun tentacle crackles with electricity. The plasma cutter tentacle glows an orange/white color when activated. There is also a tentacle that sprouts multiple flail like chains from the end that he can use for striking foes. The interface tentacle sprouts a key like protuberance that can shift its form like mercury to access all manner of computers/terminals. History: Ak’Kar was born to rule, and was told that often from the first moments he can remember. He was taught the true history of his people, the once proud and noble heritage of Illthus, a world almost completely of water. Once his proud people roamed both the waterways of the deep and the stars with abandon, and the Royal house Kalmari ruled justly, and all the denizens of Illthus were happy. That was, until the Grue Unity came. They subjugated Ak’Kar’s people, murdering all that stood to defy them, including the royal house of Kalmari. Only a few survived, running for their lives and living in quiet exile. This was the story as told to him, over and over again, by the loyal subjects of his House as he grew into adulthood. He was told it was his destiny to free his people, to lead them in an uprising against the Grue Unity. The only thing that his people waited on, he was told, was for him to make his presence known and they would follow him to victory. Life, it turns out, wasn’t as simple as the stories he’d been told. When of sufficient age and training, he set out gathering forces that wished to oppose the Grue, he offered many seats on his council, powerful positions in the new government he was to build on Illthus, and the riches of his home beneath the seas. Gathering a rather sizeable armada, he believed that if he laid siege to his home world that the Illthusians on the surface would rise up and join his rebellion, taking over the advanced technology in place and ousting the Grue. Little did he know that it had been centuries since the old stories of the grandness of the Illthusian Empire had been told, and he was all but a forgotten figurehead to all except the few in his inner circle who were devout believers, as they too had been brought up to believe. His compatriots had joined him for their own ends, never disabusing him of the notions of his childhood, instead using the siege as an opportunity to pillage valuable resources from both the Grue and Illthus, then absconding as soon as reinforcements came. Ak’Kar was taught a harsh lesson that day, and many harsher ones over the next 3 solar cycles as a prisoner of the Grue and favorite play thing for their torturers. Many terrible things were done to Ak’Kar over that time, he talks about none of it, but the most obvious thing was the amputation of his facial tentacles. A disgrace among the Illthus even to this day. Eventually the Grue grew tired of abusing him, and left him alone in his cell to die forgotten and alone. It was happenstance and luck that saw him freed. A group of mercenaries had been sent to rescue quite a different prisoner from the Grue, and in the chaos Ak’Kar escaped with them. He was of course, left on the very next backwater planet available, but Ak’Kar minded little. He set to the task of survival, and found himself in the salvage business. He made enough eventually to buy his own ship, hire a crew, and live life free among the stars. He was also fortunate enough to save a doctor from an advanced race of technopath cyberneticists from the Grue, and in return received cybernetic replacements for his tentacles as well as a few other enhancements. Always, though, in the back of his mind, is the freedom of Illthus. Though his people and allies had given up on him, he would not do the same. He would see them freed, and the Grue fall. He will need new allies, and a much bigger boat. Personality & Motivation: Ak’Kar is a driven alien, and used to giving orders due to his upbringing. He can come off as officious or authoritarian, but those that know him, including his crew, know that he would put his life on the line for those he calls friends, and those in his employ. Rarely showing the colors of mirth, Ak’Kar can seem morose or downright sullen, but this is due to his being taught that a ruler must remain aloof and above reproach, and so he adopts this practice with his crew and most others he comes in contact with. When he finally makes a friend, he is very protective, but still guarded, and doesn’t talk much about his feelings, though they can become evident by his coloring by other Illthusians, or those that know what those colors mean. Powers & Tactics: Ak’Kar leads from the front lines, he knows no other way, and so he will face foes head on, seeking to inspire his men with both actions and words. Ak’Kar isn’t much for subtlety in battle and does no hiding or feinting. He prefers to fight battles in the open, and let the superior combatant prevail without trickery or guile. Complications: Prince in Exile: Ak’Kar is of the royal House Kalmari, and believes he is destined to free his people, and take his rightful place as ruler of Illthus. Enemy: Grue Unity and his former allies that left him high and dry at the siege of Illthus and of course Captain Kraken. Reputation: Among other captains and spacefaring citizens, Akkar as seen as inconsequential or low rent due to being a salvager and junk dealer. Among those that believe in the restoration of the Illthus empire, he's seen as a failure due to his first attempt by some, and promised savior by others. Responsibility: Ak’Kar believes it is his responsibility to serve as an example of what Illthusian manner and temperament should be, and so when in public takes great pains to not bring dishonor to his race. Also he is responsible to his crew for their safety and will do his best to keep them out of harm’s way, despite the danger inherent in salvage operations, illegal or legal.

  6. Breakneck Power Level: 10 (150/153PP) Unspent Power Points: 3 Trade-Offs: -1 Attack / +1 Damage, +3 Defense / -3 Toughness In Brief: Fastest redneck in Freedom City!. 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.

    Player Name: EviscerusNox Character Name: Bugbear Power Level: 7 (105/105PP) Trade-Offs: -2 Damage/ +2 Attack Unspent Power Points: 0 In Brief: Ghost of a dead Boxer returned to solve his murder and protect Bedlam. Alternate Identity: Declan Kelly Identity: Public Birthplace: Bedlam Occupation: Boxer/ Dead man Affiliations: none Family: Victoria Weiss-Kelly (wife). Description Age: 27 Gender: Male Ethnicity: Irish Height: 5'11 Weight: 240/0 lbs Eyes: Blue/ Red Hair: Black Declan was an imposing figure in life. Not the tallest guy in the world, but he packed on a lot of muscle into his middling frame. Many likened him to boxers like Rocky Marciano in stature. He had stark black hair and stark blue eyes that did make him somewhat successful with opposite sex despite his several times broken nose and cauliflower ear on his left ear. In “death” Declan looks even more intimidating. Almost all color looks to be drained from his form, with the exception of the constantly flowing blood from the wounds of the explosion and the deep red eyes. He still wears the same clothes as the day he died. A tan trenchcoat, now charred and tattered, a black fedora and black tattered 3 piece pinstripe suit. All his clothes have seen better days as much of them are charred and ripped in places and stained with blood and dirt. All this detail is discernible despite the fact you can see right through him. Power Descriptions: Declan’s power is that to phase out of the physical world. Or “ghosting” as he would call it. He glows a slight pale blue aura and is translucent when his power is functioning. When he uses his “Ghost Strike” his hand glows an even brighter blue and seems to be less translucent and more “real.” History: Declan Kelley was never anything special. He grew up in Bedlam, poor like everyone else, he worked for the seedier elements as muscle, to get by and pay for his next meal, just like everyone else. He had a temper and was prone to trying to solve his problems, both real and existential, with his fists, with violence, just like everyone else. At least, everyone else in Bedlam that wasn’t one of the do-gooders with powers. He always sneered at their kind. Of course it was easy for them to live a life of morality, they had the power to make that kind of thing happen. Declan was just a man, and he had to do what he had to do to survive, and that sometimes meant hurting people who didn’t deserve it. When he was in his just a boy he started boxing, he was always strong for his age, and the local gym was the only place he could go where everyone seemed to be equal, and the streets of Bedlam seemed a distant concern. He’d train for hours and hours, forgetting the world around him, the darkness and the dirt that worked its way into everyone’s lives in this city. By the time he was 18, he was actually a pretty good boxer. Sure he would never be a contender, you needed money and connections for that, but he did alright on the local circuit which helped supplement his meager income in a way that didn’t make his stomach twist, like working for the Scarpias. Declan’s life was simple, uncomplicated, boring, just like everyone else’s until Victoria. Declan met Victoria when he was playing bodyguard for one of the Scarpias barely ranking lieutenants, at The Circle Perk. She was serving coffee, and when she met Declan’s eyes it’s like color finally came into the world for him. He’d never seen someone so beautiful, so alive, so happy, so… not like everyone else. After a couple weeks of going back to the coffee shop on his own - and he hated that place because what was so hard about getting a black coffee there, why did it have to have funny Italian naming for its sizes and what in the wold is a Macchiato? – anyway after a couple weeks he finally felt the courage to ask the waitress for her phone number but before he could take she put a finger to his lips, handed him a napkin with her name and number, then told him to call her tomorrow. She pushed a small cup of coffee into his hands then laughingly pushed him out the door. They started dating that week, and were married the month that followed. Declan had never met anyone like Victoria, she loved life, and she loved the city. Bedlam, she loved Bedlam! Declan had never heard such a preposterous thing. She wasn’t blind to the darkness, or the evil that had its fingers around everything, but she saw what Bedlam could be, and if other people could see it too, then Bedlam would be beautiful again. She always believed that if you showed people compassion, that said compassion would become infectious, and the world could change with a smile. She had Declan believing it too, because her smile changed his world from something ugly, into something glorious. That all changed 6 months into their marriage, when he was blown up. Declan had quit working for the Scarpias, because Victoria wouldn’t have it, and had just been boxing full time instead of on the side. He was working his way up the local circuit, making a name for himself, when he was approached about fixing his fight with the Scarpias’ golden boy, Ty “Ten Punch” Derringer. The payday was big, but he knew what Victoria would say, the disappointment she’d feel if he did anything like that was enough for him to immediately say no. The button men who came to him with the offer tried to rough him up, but he easily put them down. Deep down, he knew that wouldn’t be the end of it, that there’d be a price to pay, but he thought he’d be willing to pay it, for Victoria. About a week after turning down the money, the night before the fight, Declan came home from practice, dressing in his best to take Victoria out for dinner, to find his apartment ransacked and Victoria beaten, and tied in the corner. She was frantically gesturing towards the stove, the gas line had been ripped from the wall and the stink of methane was in the air. Without thinking Declan raced to Victoria, picked her up, and jumped out the 4th floor window just as the apartment exploded. Shrapnel and flames engulfed Declan, and though as he lost consciousness he wrapped himself around Victoria, shielding her as much as he could from the blast, then turned so that he would fall on his back, and she would not hit the ground. When he came to he was standing over Victoria’s unconscious body, her leg was broken and she wasn’t breathing. He reached out to touch her, and he noticed he could see through his hands. He couldn’t grab her, couldn’t interact with her. He could only stand there and watch her bleed. He heard tires crunch on glass and ducked behind a dumpster. He didn’t know what was going on, but if this was the Scarpias he’d do something, anything to protect Victoria. He was relieved when he saw it was paramedics. The rest of the sounds of the world started rushing back to him, shaking him from his shock and he heard sirens, fire, and crying. He stayed hidden as he watched the paramedics work on Victoria. He heard the words “I got a pulse!” and he nearly screamed in relief. He started to run to her and the paramedics turned to look at him, their eyes going wide and skin going pale. They screamed “What is that?!” And started to back away from Victoria. Declan stopped. They had to keep helping her, they had to get her to the hospital, and that meant that Declan had to go. With anger and pain in his eyes he turned and just flew through the building and up into the night. He watched from above and followed the ambulance back to the hospital as best he could. Eventually he found which room Victoria had been put in after surgery, and there he “haunted,” watching her sleep with tears in his eyes. He was pretty sure he was dead so he thought it was funny that ghosts could cry. He stayed with her for weeks as she recovered, hiding from nurses and doctors, waiting for her to wake up. All the while he, thinking about who it was that did this to him. That killed him and hurt his Victoria. As soon as he knew she was safe, he would find out. One night, a nurse came in to the room that Declan didn’t recognize. A male nurse, holding a syringe of some kind. Everything about this felt wrong to Declan. She hadn’t gotten any injections in a week, why now? Declan flew from the bathroom where he was hiding and reached for the nurse, his hand clasping around the man’s wrist. His hand glowed, and he could actually feel the flesh under his fingers. The man yelped in surprise and dropped the syringe, turning to look at Declan. Declan recognized him then, another one of Scarpias’ cronies, just like he had been. Declan felt fire in his belly and snarled balling his other hand into a fist, getting ready to beat this man to death. He was obviously here to take Victoria away from him. He wouldn’t let that happen. No one would EVER take Victoria away again. As he reared back with one meaty paw, he heard a scream and saw Victoria looking at him, horror in her face and her eyes. Declan’s heart broke and he let the nurse go, who scrambled out of the room and down the hallway. He tried to plead with her, “Honey it’s ok, it’s me, Declan! Everythings ok!” but she either couldn’t hear him because he wasn’t making sound, or for her screams. There was shouts in the hallway as nurses and doctors ran to Victoria’s room, all stopping short and gasping or screaming at the sight of Declan, a translucent man bleading and burnt standing over Victoria. Feeling defeated, frustrated, and completely destroyed, Declan flew out the window leaving Victoria to the care of her doctors. To the care of the living. It’s been 2 months since then and Declan has learned a little bit more about his “condition.” He is dead, but he can affect the real world, at least, living things, with effort. He has spent most of that time guarding Victoria from afar, making sure no one tries to harm her again. So far no one has. But he also plans to hunt down whoever set that bomb, and the rest of the Scarpias, and everyone like them, that would seek to take something as beautiful and loving as Victoria out of the world. He knows he can never be with her again, as he is dead, but at least he can make sure she’s safe. Personality & Motivation: Declan in death is a downright dour man. He sees no light in the world, except that which comes from his wife, and he’ll do anything to protect that light. He takes no time for relaxation or comfort, except for the hours he spends watching his wife while at work or at home. All other time is spent looking for his killers and the would be assassins. He’s got unfinished business, and as soon as Victoria is safe then he’ll think about the rest of his eternity. Powers & Tactics: Declan uses his powers the only way that makes sense to him. He is a ghost after all, he passes through walls, stays in the shadows, learning what he can from the living. In a fight he relies on the skills he had in life as a boxer, but his punches now don’t connect with flesh, they hit at the very essence of a person. Even though he technically doesn’t need to, it’s ingrained in him to try and cover up, dodge attacks and counter. It’s hard to actually slip punches with his philly shell style since the punches just pass right through him, but he still considers it good practice to try. Complications: Not Actually Dead: Declan doesn’t know this, but he’s not actually dead, or a ghost. When the explosion went off it triggered a latent mutation that partially phased him out of reality making him insubstantial. His power works on it’s own for the most part but if it’s ever nullified or if he somehow falls unconscious he’ll revert back to being full flesh and blood again and has a high chance to succumb to the wounds that he received from the blast that don’t affect him in his ghosted form. If he ever does get his insubstantial turned off he immediately goes into the dying state and must receive immediate medical attention. Enemy: Scarpias Mafia.

  8. Gel Azure [PL10] ~ Glass Clown

    Gel Azure Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Unspent Power Points: 0. Trade-Offs: -2 Attack, +2 Damage / -2 Defence, +2 Toughness In Brief: A young but talented mage, tapping into a well of mystical knowledge coming from a past life. Catchphrase: "This kinda makes me jelly!" Alternate Identity: Edoardo Maria Diodato (Secret). Birthplace: Rome, Italy. Residence: Freedom City's Theatre District. Base of Operations: An old loft in the Theatre District (his house, basically). Occupation: Photagrapher and Sculptor. Affiliations: Solo, at the moment. Family: None that he knows of. Description: Age: 22 (13/7/95). Apparent Age: 22. Gender: Male. Ethnicity: Caucasian, of Italian heritage. Height: 184cm. Weight: 75kg. Eyes: Blue. Hair: Blond. Edoardo is a somewhat tall, a bit too thin and not too athletic young man. He has long limbs and fingers and a pale, graceful complexion that, together with his way of carrying himself, poorly suits his personality. Ed has golden blond hair, kept rigourously tamed and cared for, which reaches up to his chin, almost covering his left eye, the rest being sleeked back with gel. His icy eyes have a piercing gaze that makes a lot of people either frown or like him, and he generally wears a range of intense expressions that includes everything from a childish frown to a maniacal grin. He generally wears comfortable but fashionable street clothing when not in costume, preferring stuff like sneakers and sporty jeans and shirts. When costumed, he wears an azure full face mask made from his own gel magic and a serious, uptight costume consisting of a white shirt, grey suit, pants and tie, shiny shoes and a pair of white butler gloves. History: Edoardo's story begins about three centuries before his birth, with Dionisio, a elderly mage and alchemist who lived between Switzerland and Italy, known for his pioneering works regarding the achievement of a fluid philosopher's stone, or royal elixir, as he called it. Though it worked in theory, he found that, even spending most of his lengthened lifespan studying and perfecting the elixir, he couldn't make it into an actual philosopher's stone. The only results he got were a health potion that was just marginally better than the ones his peers were making, and a petty excuse for an alchemical catalyst that slowly turned whatever it came in contact with into more of itself: a viscous, light blue colored gelatine. Felling the natural end he staved off for almost three hundred years creeping ever closer, the decrepit mage fell into a desperate research frenzy, using every single resource he could find to obtain eterna life before it was too late. He actually succeeded, though not in a way he expected or hoped. Dissolving two similar, yet different, Atlantean and Lemurian relics (obtained after much pain and effort), he managed to give a batch of his failed experimental elixir the ability to strengthen and affix a soul to a body immersed in it... or at least that was the way it should have went. The concentration of magic from the relics, and the one from the old mage's soul, in fact, proved too strong for the gelatinous medium to handle, and a feedback response from it caused the entire vat to explode into an acidic spray of solvent, which turned the whole region where the old man's mansion stood into an alchemical wasteland, dissolving not only the bodies, but the very souls of every living being in the area and nebulizing them into tiny magical particles that swirled around the place for the generations to come. The "natural" well, formed by the explosion attracted a lot of tourists, curious people, and occult seekers for centuries, until something in that streaming vortex of atomized souls and bodies regained a spark of consciousness after exactly 333 years. The thing was not, exactly, the old mage, or the people who lived near his manor, or the animals or plants, but a pure, unadulterated spiritual egg, seeded with some of the will, power and knowledge of its component souls. That egg found a host in a young woman whose name is not currently important, who, finding herself pregnant without an apparent physical mean, panicked and gave up her child for adoption. That child would later be given to the care of an old catholic orphanage of nuns near Vatican City, where he would grow up under the watchful eyes of the nuns... and God, or so they said. The young boy was a real storm in the orphanage, carrying a wind of change and fun in the gloomy, stoic life of his fellow orphans, and felt a strong pull to the occult and the supernatural since a very young age, although he never knew the cause of this instinct until he was about sixteen years old. His sixteenth birthday meant the awakening of the deep seated well of mystic power and knowledge hidden within his soul. He could now feel and see the world under a whole new light, and felt a calling to the Arts. He started to train in secret, wary of the nuns discovering his "devilish acts" as they called all the mystic practices in the world, and soon became somewhat able to muster his newfound abilities, though still completely inexperienced. The boy, with his solar attitude, also discovered a great passion for "normal" arts, especially sculpture and photography, and aced all the art courses in the orphanage, aiming to enter a prestigious art school. When he finally got out of the institute, at eighteen years of age, he actually found that he wanted to leave all that life behind and, with only a bit of money, some courage, and the camera he got as a birthday present, he set off for Freedom City, the most "special" city in the whole world, hoping to find out more about his calling and purpose in life. After four years spent researching, practicing and trying to make a name for himself in the artistic community, he has assumed the name of "Gel Azure", fighting crime and helping people with his powers and custom made staff of power, away from the selfish goals of the unknown man who created him so long ago. Personality & Motivation: Edoardo is an over energetic young man, and has a distinct lack of focus bordering on attention deficit disorder territory. He is the result of an incredible experiment that culminated in the melding of dozens of souls to form his, and this is probably at least part of the problem. The other part being the strict rules and eduction he grew up on back in his youth, while in the orphanage. He was always labeled as a problematic kid and never managed to get adopted, probably because of the nuns pulling some strings to keep him and his deviant attitude around to be kept in check. He has a slight problem with auditory hallucinations, hearing things through a distorted filter or hearing voices whispering, but he manages to mostly ignore it and live a normal life without medication... mostly. Some might call his hyperactive sensibility for visual arts a sign of either geniusnor madness, and they might not be that far off, still he has recently discovered the joys of mixing the arcane knowledge in his head with the arts he has been practicing, and has found a potent motivation in experiment with this peculiar fusion. He feels awkward and bizarre at times, sticking out from other people like a sore thumb, and he might do some crazy stuff in order to be accepted... like becoming a super hero or something. Still, he knows there is more to life than he has seen or even imagines, and wants to know more about himself and his place in this complicated universe of ours. Powers & Tactics Casting offensive gel is not the best of Ed's skills, so he generally relies on his staff for direct damage. The gel staff is capable of dishing out a huge amont of damage thanks to the years of protective spells (which render it virtually indestructible) and offensive charms layered upon it, while the gel core in it weakens the stricture of anything it strikes, rendering it softer and more... well... gelatinous. This, other than making things easir to break, makes the damage and wounds dealt pretty nasty and hard to heal without proper care, even for regenerative types. The staff is also capable of being ridden as a traditional witch broom would, carrying the user at about 500MPH pretty much silently. Finally, it can grant the wielder a degree of immunity to metabolic hazards, suffocation, and environmental hazards, so long as the user keeps it on his person. Ed is also familiar with a number of spells centering around gel, making him a force to be reckoned with in battle. He can turn ordinary matter into gel, at a rate of about 100lbs per casting, create and move about large quantities of gel, which he can manipulate and shape into pretty complex shapes as well, and finally he can snare and trap opponents into suffocating, regenerating masses of sticky, sweet gel. His most used spells by far are the purely defensive ones, allowing him to turn his body and clothes into flowing gel, becoming immune to most forms of direct physical damage, or covering his person in transoarent gel which acts a ver tough shock absorbing armor, capable of nullifying almost all impacts. Power Descriptions: It is worth noting that Ed's gel is not watery or organic, has variable color, transparency, consistency and, while not edible, has a very strong sickly sweet taste (but no smell whatsoever). It is also a permanent product of Ed's mana well, and is in fact the sole possible catalyst for his magic, limiting him in his choice of spells and element. It is of course fluid most of the time, and thus Ed's spells do not have a set shape, since they do not even use traditional symbolism, just pure soul contact and meditation. Complications: Touched (by Gel): Ed's touched, there is no way around it. He hears voices, sees thibgs there are not there and thinks in a later (or rather, skewed) way. This is of course because of the origin of his soul, and so it is stronger when not using his powers for longer periods of time, and weakest when he is casting and expending his mana. Attention Deficit: Ed, for the same above reasons, suffers from a mild form of ADHD which hinders his work and day to day life. Medication is also ineffectual, as above. Hungry for Pudding: Ed's powers, however great, do not tap into an infinite well of mana, and since his soul is attuned to a very specific element (gel) he cannot recover as fast as other mages without some appropriate measures... like eating tons of sweet jell-o or pudding. Strange it might be, having his stomach filled with a large wuantity of edible gelatinous substance at all times helps him gather way larger amounts of energy frim his surroundings, acting as a natural catalyst.

  9. Levity PL10(7 Caps) - Sailor

    Levity Power Level: PL 10 @ PL 7 Caps (150/151PP) Unspent Power Points: 1 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. Her father was more than willing... as now he also gets to fly their craft... he was so bitter at the world that he accepted working for Ghostworks and became a loyal member. He hunts Anne, and tries to disrupt Nolan activities whenever ordered under the callsign of "Heatseeker".

  10. Erebo [PL10] ~ Glass Clown

    Erebo Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Unspent Power Points: 0. Trade-Offs: -2 Attack / +2 Damage +2 Defence / -2 Toughness In Brief: An young dimensional refugee who received an unwanted gift from the depths of the Terminus' darkness. Catchphrase: "Be afraid of the dark that shines light on your sins, evildoer!!" Theme: Alternate Identity: Eliseo "Eli" Milioni (Secret) Birthplace: Earth 5443's Turin, Italy. Residence: Claremont Academy Campus. Base of Operations: "La Base": his small room in Claremont Dormitories. Occupation: Student at Claremont. Affiliations: Next Gen. Family: Maria Grazia Milioni, his lost older sister. Description: Age: 17 (01/08/2000) Apparent Age: 17. Gender: Male. Ethnicity: Caucasian, of Italian descent. Height: 191cm. Weight: 78kg. Eyes: Black. Hair: Black. Eliseo would be a normal teen (if a bit tall) but the "accident" which made him into what he his now had noticeable, eerie effects on his appearance and, much more disturbingly, on his psyche (but let's leave that for another section of this document). After becoming infused with the dark, entropic energies of the Terminus, Eli's body grew thinner and taller, almost as if stretched by the forces now contained within it, all of his hair turned jet black, and his eyes turned slightly larger and as black and deep as the Abyss. His skin, locked perpetually into an almost ceramic white complexion, completes the picture of a lanky, long limbed boy whose appearance whispers "odd" in every person's mind, and yet seems capable of an odd charm which puts him above many other people when it comes to being liked by his peers and others alike, is it the "allure of the Abyss?" As for clothing, accessories and hairstyle, he likes to keep things minimalistic, dressing all in black with small white accessories most of the time. He keeps his hair long, barely touching his shoulders, and has a predilection for turtlenecks, velvet and silk shirts, and most of all, shiny black shoes. He doesn't really have a costume, using his powers to cover up the details of his figure and clothing and thus appearing as a living silhouette that seems almost a hole cut out from the fabric of space, showing a place where all light goes to die and adding to his sleek, phantomlike image. History: Eliseo was born in a parallel very similar to Earth-Prime, with the glaring absence of most forms of superheroes and meta human activity. While the supernatural and the occult existed, they were not nearly near the realm of public knowledge, and orchestrated their manipulative schemes behind closed doors and curtains. Eliseo's father, Marco, was a small time engineer in Turin, with the small quirk of being obsessed by the occult matters of the world. This obsessive focus of his came to burrow into his brain and the lives of him and his children when Eliseo was only eight, his mother being apparently "murdered by a foul creature". Eli and Grazia, his two years older sister, reacted very differently from each other to this sudden shift in their otherwise tranquil lives: while little Eli was shunned by his father and thus despised him in return during the following years, Grazia grew ever closer to their father's hunt for the supernatural, helping him and encouraging his obsessive behevior as a way to scrounge up some sort of attention and affection from an otherwise elusive and self-centered man. Living with a distant father and sister, while not easy, wasn't really that traumatic on Eli, who grew to be a naturally self-reliant young boy, accepting friendships as few and far between occurrences in his otherwise lonesome life and, while the rest of his close family was busy searching for evidence of the unknown, the boy was looking at the sky and dreaming of flying, like almost all the children his age. Fancies that would soon come to be a reality for the people of his Earth, when a research team, secretly lead by the occult conspiracies his dad and sister were frantically searching for, discovered a "safe and reliable way to exchange information and goods with other universes". In reality though, this was a ploy by a nameless alliance of supernatural and secretive organizations to bring the incredible to the forefront of the world... and then dominate it openly. As people started travelling between other worlds, the economy flourished thanks to the influx of cheap goods and new scientific breakthroughs and, by the time Eliseo turned fourteen, his world seemed to turn into a Utopia. His father though, was weary of "the Plan", as he called it and, being right for once, this would lead his family to ruin. One year later, Eli and his family would be shunned as criminals and terrorists by the government due to their father trying to bomb a interdimensional portal station. To escape persecution, his sister, with instructions from his father, actually managed to activate a jury rigged device that could allow them to "jump" once in a random alternate dimension. This would have been a horrible decision and a very likely death sentence for the both of them, but his fanatical sister was too sure of their father's work to doubt the prospect... she regretted it when they found themselves trapped on a Terminus scout vessel. Fortunately for them though, the vessel was headed for Earth-Prime's Freedom City, during the '93 invasion attempted by Omega's forces. The unmanned ship was among the first to be spotted and shot down, right above Lonely Point. As the teens fell to what looked like it was going to be their demise, the interdimensional drive of the ship malfunctioned and exploded, sending the ship scuttling... somewhere in time and space. Eliseo doesn't remember much from the time he spent on the ruined ship, since he was seemingly put by Grazia in the only working stasis chamber in the vessel while he was unconscious, slowing down his metabolism. The ship crashed twenty four years later, exactly where it was supposed to during the invasion, and attracted the attention of the city's heroes, being a Terminus ship. Eli was the only person on board, his sister nowhere to be seen and, what was more, the failing dimensional drive and stasis chamber, along with the properties of the dimension where he was jaunted, all contributed to him actually developing powers as a conduit of the Terminus dreaded entropic energies. Soon after his discovery, Eli was confirmed as a dimensional refugee and sent to Claremont to study and learn to control his (mistrusted) powers. He adopted the codename Erebo, from the Greek god personifying the Abyss, and started fighting and striving to find meaning in this new world. Personality & Motivation: Originally a lively and energetic boy, thanks to the lack of care from his family, Eli has grown into a self-reliant and lonesome teenager, who doesn't actively look for company or friendship, but doesn't really reject it outright either. This part of him has dug deeper in his heart when he changed physically and mentally due to the Terminus' energies flowing into and through him, making it difficult for him to develop emotional bonds with other people, especially "normal" ones. He still holds his sister dear, much more than he ever did his father, considered she saved his life, probably in spite of her own, after years of neglect and coldness. He is calm, patient and collected, even though he couldn't be considered "cool" due to his eerie, aloof attitude, he can be surprisingly proactive when it comes to a set goal. Eli is also a very protective person with his few close relationships, holding them very dear to his heart and hoping o build a lasting life in this new environment where he has been thrust. The boy hopes of being accepted and to prove worthy of his saved life, building upon it with the utmost motivation and drive, even though he might not be able to show it completely or easily to others. Simply put, he wants to make a name, a life and a home for himself, a whole new life... a fresh start. Powers & Tactics: Generally, Erebo uses his darkness to conceal his features and approaches fights with criminals and other threats carefully, preferring to impair them from a distance using his Embrace and Breath effects and using the fact that he is immune to them to sneak around the battlefield, hitting where it hurts (after draining the physical toughness out of his enemies with his deadly Caress). If he wants to be extra careful, he will maneuver at range using his Wings and Gateways to position himself and start raining pain on his enemies in the form of shadow javelins (obviously thrown with the help of enhanced strength). Power Descriptions: Eli's power comes from him becoming a conduit to the dark, abyssal energies of the farthest reaches of the Terminus, the place where all light goes to die, thus all of his shadows do not appear normal at all, but rather swallow up all light that touches them, appearing mlre like holes cut out from the very fabric of the world and into the Void between dimensions. When using his Embrace, a rather big space is covered by a veritable dome of impenetrable darkness, and all caught within (except Erebo himself) find themselves unable to see, hear and smell with most of their senses. Usually, the inside of the domenis also struck by freezing gales that hinder those within, again letting Erebo act unaffected, and leving them vulnerable to surprise attacks using his dark Caress, a shadowy, tendril like arm that drains the toughness and physical resilience of anyone (and anything) that it touches, making hitting and breaking them with enhanced strength easy. Finally, with some effort, Erebo can use his solid shadows to create simple objects which, as a general rule, can only be moved by him and his powers. His shadows can also be used a gateway between two obscured points or mundane shadows, like some sort of portal, while enhancing his mobility with, black, stringy wings that allows some rather fast flight. Complications: Vulnerable to light: Eli's nature as a confuit of interdimensional darkness make him vulneble to intense light based attacks and effects. Odd and Eerie are my second names: Eli's physical and psychological profiles are skewed due to his interaction with the Terminus, leaving him unable to properly express his feelings through simple unconscious everyday gestures and making him appear almost doll like in behavior and appearance. Child of the Terminus: Eli's visceral and metaphysical link to the Terminus his a secret left for his closest of friends, since the history of Freedom make it a very touchy subject and could at best lead peple to mistrust him, and at worst... Away from home: Eli's home dimension does not want him back, and he wouldn't know how to find it if it did, anyways. He is not familiar with the concept and culture of real superheroes and villains, and the impact that they had on Earth-Prime in the last century, so he might seem like a fish out of water to his peers.

  11. 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".

Her body is firm and put together nicely, not a single ounce of wasted space. Her hair is smooth and long enough to reach her mid-back, she mostly wears it down, but can tie it up into a large, braided bun. Her skin is a darker brown. She was born with her eye color. Her top canine teeth are short sharp fangs. She has three tattoos. Between her shoulder blades are three Chinese words, top to bottom, 'Red', 'Life', 'Serpent'. On her left shoulder is a snake coiled around a sun, trying to swallow it. On her right wrist is a sleeping snake wrapped around it. She always wears knee-length or ankle-length skirts that always flow. Her tops are either sleeveless, button-up vests or sleeveless sports tanktops. Shoes are a pair of white trainers. Her costume is a full body suit that covers everything but her neck and head, and a domino mask. The suit is made of morphic molecules, and feels slightly ridged to the touch.

Though she didn't get any of the Hemokinesis or Levitation until her junior or senior year of high school. As mentioned, she was born with her eye color. Hemokinesis is noticeable as she and the effected are surrounded by a damp, dark red corona. Levitation is a weak form of telekinesis that she can only affect herself with... for now. Fangs are subtle because they fit in her mouth. Blood Awareness causes her eyes to glow, though it's a purely mental sense and doesn't need to see to use it. Her Mutated Blood is not visible, but she cannot donate and does not have a matching type to any. History Maria's parents are second and third generation Puerto Rican immigrants. They met as children and grew up together, eventually having their first children and getting married afterwards. Her older brother and sister are identical, and (to Maria's belief) some what psychic of each other. Being the youngest, her sister and brother believed she was coddled too much. Maria didn't disdain the love of her parents, but she did test their boundaries. She was a smart kid who got away with more than she'd admit. None-the-less, her smarts got her into good places, like advanced classes. Puberty was kind to her, the cute little kid turned into a beautiful woman. During that time she tested her boundaries again, and she found out she was pretty much savvy in the ways of giving direction. She was happy about that. She saw herself a leader, a guide. Late in her senior year of high school is when she started developing her powers. It was almost an accident. She though she was losing a tooth at first but when she saw the fangs it was less scary and more intriguing. She joked around school that she was some kind of vampire. only to find out that there was more than just fangs. She could sense blood and when she sensed it, could do things to it! From then on she kept on pushing the boundaries of her powers, seeing what she could do. She even ordered a morphic molecule costume. She was going to be a hero post high school. Then the free ride to Freedom City University came. She had her suspicions, but the scholarship was just for good grade. She could have went anywhere, but Freedom City had superheroes. The more she could interact with the big guys. the better. So she accepted. Personality and Motivation Maria is 'dominant'. She leads, balking at the idea of following. Not that she's mean or rude about it, she just knows her place is the front. Though if she has to defer to someone, she'll take notes meticulously, trying to see what it would take to be in that position. Like any leader, she is a problem solver. She'll listen and try to find solutions. Maria is also studious, and a researcher. Even in quiet times she likes to challenge her mind. If there ever is quiet time. Maria is a mover and shaker. The only time she seems to be still is when she's asleep. Maria seeks two things right now. One the destigmatization of her powers. People see the whole blood part of her powers and think very lowly of them! She's not a bad person and wants to show that. The other goal is to balance being a hero and continuing her education. She has a degree to earn and people to protect, of which she's giving up on neither. Complications Disability: Her blood thickens without power use. She takes blood thinners or uses her powers, depending on the situation. Disability: She needs contacts or glasses to see far away. Identity: She does not keep this secret. Prejudice: Being a hemokinetic gets you looks in the hero community when you work your powers. People think she's either a villain or is at least an 'Iron Age' hero when they see it! Reputation: Blood powers? Fangs? People think she's a vampire! Reputation: Her headstrong leader attitude does not endear her to some. Responsibility: She is attending Freedom City University on a scholarship. She's also pledging a sorority at FCU.

  13. 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.

  14. Salvo (PL 10)- Zeitgeist Blue

    Salvo Player Name: Zeitgeist Blue Character Name: Salvo Power Level: 10 (150/153PP) Trade-Offs: -5 Attack / +5 Damage, -5 Defense / +5 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 3 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/Dorm at Claremont Academy 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, Whitfields, Halls 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: 17 (August 13, 2000) 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 a year 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 end of the school year 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Kuksón (PL 10/12)

    Kuksón Power Level: 10 (180/180PP) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: +3 Attack / -3 Damage In Brief: Regular guy with a not so regular sword. Catchphrase: Theme: Alternate Identity: Lee Yoon-sung (Secret) Birthplace: Emerald City Residence: Base of Operations: Occupation: Auto Mechanic Affiliations: People and/or groups you work with. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Blodeuwedd (PL12/13) - Tiffany Korta

    Blodeuwedd Power Level: 12/13 (205/216PP) Trade-Offs: None Unspent Power Points: 11 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.

  20. El Huracán (PL 10) ~ TheRedGuy

    Player Name: TheRedGuy Character Name: El Huracán Power Level: 10 (157/163PP) Trade-Offs: +2 Defense / -2 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 6 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.

  21. 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! Peshkov is currently assigned to Freedom City to act as the liaison between the Peoples' Heroes and the Freedom League, as well as deal with the worrisome reports he's heard about magical activity in Freedom City.

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

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.

  25. 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.
