Crimson Katana III! She's Elektra meets the Silver Samurai with ghosts, ninjas and the authorities all after her. She also one of the premier sword fighters in the world... in theory. Shockingly, her sheet in the Freedom City sourcebook is not so hot. Since she makes a great foil for Jack of all Blades, I gave her stats an overhaul so she could actually keep up with him in a fight. I've made her 24 here, with the assumption that she was first possessed by her father in 2003, when she was 16, rather than 1997.

 

Some of the changes were fairly minor: raising her Dexterity from 21 to 22, putting a few more points into her saves. She had plenty to spare; her canon sheet only used 137PP despite being PL12! One of the biggest failings was a lack of combat tricks. Acrobatic Bluff with a +20 modifier means she can Feint even experienced opponents with fair reliability. Blind-Fight, Hide in Plain Sight and Uncanny Dodge (auditory) are there to show that she's, y'know, a ninja. She's been on the run for years now, so we know she's pretty sneaky.

 

The biggest change is to her swords! The Three-Flames Katana now has three settings - see how that works? The first is straight up Damage, with the Penetrating a supernaturally sharp blade deserves. The second is a slight twist on the Fatigue AP it already had; now it works on a Will Save, to represent attacking the opponent's spirit. The third is the actual 'flame', a red-hot Drain Toughness effect that works on opponents or objects for when she needs to get her Qui-Gon on.

 

The wakizashi is actually set up to add extras to that first Damage effect. With both swords in hand, she can respond to any melee attack with an Aura effect, representing a lightning quick counterattack. This means that she doesn't need to be as insanely accurate as someone like Jack: she just needs to wait for them to open themselves up to attack. Sure, she'll be taking a hit, too, but that's just the kind of stone cold badass she is.

 

The smoke bombs and shuriken give her a couple more options, ones that keep her a one or two steps ahead of ninja minions and law enforcement. The former are a standard Obscure effect that lingers while she makes good her escape (or takes advantage of those feats I mentioned earlier) while the latter is there to slow a group of pursuers down long enough for her to slip into the shadows.

True North - Canada's Premier National Superteam

 

Canadian Shield - Geokinetic

 

Elizabeth Combs is the daughter of an RCD Corporal and a minor Igneous noble, of the subterranean civilization dwelling beneath much of the area surrounding Hudson Bay. Taking more after her human father, Liz is still easily recognizable, being nearly seven feet of somewhat ashen skin tone and subtle, scale-like mineral deposits that run across her cheeks and down her spine. Luckily her rugged good looks and confident charm made her an ideal poster woman for the government funded Canadian super team when her geokinetic powers, present from birth, began to develop in earnest. Favouring creating rocky armor and weapons to enhance her already considerable toughness and strength, Canadian Shield is also a decisive leader on and off the battlefield. She's a canny political player, but always stops short of compromising her high ideals, something that has earned her the respect of even her more difficult teammates.

 

Bombardier - Battlesuit

 

Paul Bouchard was a young blue collar worker from Dorval whose chance at an athletic scholarship as a goalie had been cut short thanks to stepping out of the crease to throw down his gloves one time too many. Bouchard's stubborn streak manifested itself in his job as an assembly line worker where he drove himself to learn as much of the engineering principles behind the areospace components he helped build as he could on his own time. Because of that, when a rush order on a limited run of components came his way, he recognized them as pieces of a powered gauntlet moments before heavily armed technology pirates broke into the factory to steal them. Managing to cobble together the concussive blast weapon in the resulting chaos, Bouchard defeated the thieves and saved the lives of his coworkers. An instant media sensation, he was soon tapped to don the full, prototype armor as the one-man air force, Bombardier.

 

Coyote III - Acrobat

 

The latest in a line of First Nations heroes, Jim Pegahmagabow is easily an Olympic level acrobat and martial artist. Neither he nor any of his predecessors possessed any superpowers, although the original Coyote played on superstitions to cultivate an aura of mystery, some of which remains today. The very definition of a street-level hero, Coyote spends as much time helping around the community as he does fighting crime, but after demonstrating an ability to take down metahuman opponents well out of his supposed 'weight class' he was approached about joining the premier national team. Deciding he could do the most good in the spotlight, he agreed. A penchant for banter and minor issues with authority mark him as a young man still trying to find his own way to live up to his legacy, but his genuinely caring nature has made him a key part of bringing team's disparate members together as more than comrades-in-arms.

 

Daniel Storm - Mystic/Survivalist

 

Calling Daniel Storm a superhero would take an extremely generous use of the term. A stocky survivalist with a weathered face typically concealed by a full beard and a scowl, Storm spends most of his time in the undeveloped wilderness and would just as soon keep to himself if not for an uncanny habit of running into the varied preternatural strangeness of the Canadian North. From haunted cabins to feral wendigo to rogue nature spirits, without meaning to Storm has become one of the world's most experienced monster hunters, picking up more than a few mystical tricks of the trade along the way. Officially a consultant rather than a full member, Storm rarely accompanies the team into all-out brawls, but more than once he's been the deciding factor against a supernatural foe. Despite his gruff personality, Storm rarely refuses a call for help and takes a vaguely avuncular attitude towards the younger heroes.

 

Verglass - Super Speed/Ice Generation

 

Adhira Zev was always a little odd, the sort of up-and-coming particle physicist who rode her bike to work, went rock climbing on weekends and made puns requiring multiple fluencies to appreciate. A lab accident made her much stranger, a kinetic energy sink who uncontrollably slowed the molecules around her to increase her own speed, resulting in severe temperature drops. Crafting a suit that let her channel that ability to good use, she took the name Verglass and became Victoria's most prominent superhero in short order. A brilliant thrill seeker, Adhira loves going fast and solving complicated problems on the fly, but being forced to wear her containment harness nearly all the time or endanger everyone around her wears on the gregarious woman more than she lets on. Some of that strain shows in her reckless attitude, but fortunately she's usually able to get out of trouble nearly as quickly as she gets into it.

 

Cosmic Constable - Alien

 

J'ou Dorah't is a member of an interplanetary police force tasked with guarding their little corner of the Lor republic. Ending up on Earth on the trail of a criminal, he teamed with Canada's superheroes to bring the offender to justice and afterward decided to remain. This wasn't so odd: J'ou's particular rank suggests an anthropologist as much as a peacekeeper, seeking to understand the guilty while protecting the innocent. With bright red skin and a stately white uniform, the Cosmic Constable rides into battle on the back of his robotic steed and brandishing a pair of symbiotic sidearms that can form laser pistols or cavalry sabers. Unfailing polite and friendly, the mild empathic abilities of his people help him compensate for most cultural differences, making him surprisingly adept at making friends out of enemies. He spends most of his time in the prairie provinces when not with the rest of team on larger missions.

 

Wendy Go - Monster

 

Becky Shuster was working a summer job as an airport attendant when a chance encounter with a group of visiting Claremont students ended with her possession by a wendigo spirit in the woods outside of Thunder Bay, transforming her into a creature of terrible strength and unspeakable hunger! Thankfully her new friends were able to subdue her and True North's consulting mystic Daniel Storm spent nearly two years training her to keep her bestial side under tenuous control. Now a junior member of the national superteam, Wendy Go is a young woman doing her best to prove herself in a suddenly much larger, stranger world. Curious and enthusiastic by nature, Becky is eager to learn from her more experienced teammates but her fear of losing control again has added a streak of glum introspection to her personality that matches the streak of white in her hair.

Magic
Honesty
Loyalty
Generosity
Kindness
Laughter

 

Yes, these are superhero builds inspired by the mane cast of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Yes, that was a pun. No, I won't apologize.

 

To be clear, these are human builds which are homages to the ponies, not the actual ponies themselves. That would have meant the No Hands drawback and arguably some Permanent Shrinking and pbbbth no. The artwork was created by Myisha Haynes, AKA Empress Funk and can be viewed in its entirety here.

This build, inspired by Twilight Sparkle, reads for the most part like a fairly standard Sorcereress Supreme character. The point-of-view character for much of the show, Twilight's special talent is literally just 'magic', which means more when you realize that other ponies' talents are generally things like harvesting apples, throwing parties or making dresses. Twilight Sparkle walking into Ponyville is pretty much like Gandalf the Grey walking into the Shire. Things just got real up ins.

I've represented that with what could reasonably be called a stupid big magic array. Each of the powers in the array is based on something Twilight has done on-screen, with a focus on reliability. With a mix of Perception range, Effortless and Variable Descriptor there aren't many times she won't be able to do something. The size of the array also means that she has a lot of freedom to stunt bigger, flashier effects whenever she needs to.

Setting her apart from other magical practitioners is her extremely high Intelligence. So well read she literally lives in a library, between her +6 and Eidetic Memory Twilight has a good shot at remembering all kinds of useful facts, while being the undisputed expert in her specific areas of expertise. As she continues to study this whole 'friendship' thing, some ranks in Knowledge (Behavioral Sciences) wouldn't hurt either.

Applejack is the powerfully athletic, lasso-wielding representative of an extensive clan who embodies the Element of Honesty. I spent a lot of time trying to come up with an angle that didn't scream 'Wonder Woman' quite so much before just going with it. As a result, she's probably the most straight-forward of any of these builds.

Enhanced physical ability scores bring her up to caps and give her some decent saves even when she's just duking it out with her bare fists, while Improved Grab and Improved Grapple make her a pretty dandy wrassler. Her lasso, however, gives her some much more interesting options.

Its default setting is a single-target Snare that can force an opponent trapped by it to speak the truth. Applejack's sizable Sense Motive bonus should give her the edge against anyone who makes that Will save, while the Effortless extra lets her keep trying as long as her captive is tied up. Alternatively, she can 'crack the whip' for a Damage/Trip effect or swing from place to place at high speed.

I'm obligated to inform you that this Rainbow Dash-inspired build is 20% cooler than any of the others. Embodying the Element of Loyalty, as a superhero Rainbow Dash would probably be some mix of DCAU Wally West and Ryan Reynolds' Hal Jordan. She's cocky and boastful with the skills to back it up and rock-solid dependability despite her careless attitude.

As such, I've built her as a flying speedster! She can just about break the sound barrier by default and get up to truly mad speeds by using the Power Reserve idea borrowed from builds like Ecal's Speedster. Take advantage of her mobility by using Moving Feint and Move-by-Action. Note that this version doesn't actually have wings, she just flies under her own power entirely.

As a pegasus pony, it's Rainbow Dash's job to control the weather by manipulating clouds, and this build shares that ability, giving her some options to affect the terms of the fight including a lightning blast. Finally, in a really tight spot, she can pull out her signature move, the sonic rainboom! As built here, the rainboom will knock around and blind anybody in a 20 mile radius. It is not Selective and will tire the heck out of Rainbow, making it a fun, ace-in-the-hole desperation move.

Not everyone likes Rarity, the inspiration for this build, at first. She can come across as a vain, overly-dramatic fashionista. And, well, she is. She's also an extremely hard-working perfectionist who routinely puts others ahead of herself without having to be asked, as befits the embodiment of the Element of Generosity. Her special talent has to do with fashion design, with her signature style being the incorporation of gemstones into her dresses and other clothes. That's the thread upon which this build is hung.

By default, Rarity is a sort of more fashionable geokinetic, specifically making barriers and projectiles from gems. Her fire ruby and opal themed attacks are little nods to the show itself and give her options to exploit any particularly vulnerable saves her opponent might have.

A full suite of Diplomacy and Gather Information related bonuses and feats should let her avoid a direct confrontation a lot of the time. When push comes to shove, however, this build can make like Emma Frost and transform into an invulnerable, gemstone-skinned tank with diamond-hard fists. Sometimes even a lady just has to kick the bad guys in the head, after all.

The embodiment of the Element of Kindness, Fluttershy is pony with hidden depths. A quiet, unassuming nature lover, she's timid to the point of freezing up at the first sign conflict... unless her friends are in trouble. Then the guano really hits the proverbial fan. Do you understand what I'm saying here? Fluttershy will ruin you.

What I came up with for this build was an shapeshifter that borrows heavily from AA's Animal Mimic but has a few twists of its own. For one thing, she specifically mimics mythological creatures, with sample configurations based on some of the monsters she's gone up against on the show. The Partial Transformation flaw means that she can only mimic limbs and other qualities, not actually assume the full form of a creature for disguise or other purposes. I could probably be convinced that it should be a drawback instead, but since it's only saving her 2PP as it is, it's largely moot.

She's got big, feathery wings and variable claws and fangs outside of the variable power, so she doesn't need to worry about hitting caps. With +20 Handle Animal, Animal Empathy and Comprehend Animals, chances are she can round up some surprising allies or informants when the situation calls for it, and her stare is a palpable Despair effect. Seriously, she won a staring contest with a cockatrice. Don't mess.

You never know exactly what to expect from Pinkie Pie, the Element of Laughter, and this build gives the player enough tricks to be similarly unpredictable. She's shifted for Defense and Damage respectively, in what I like to think of as the 'Harley Quinn with a giant mallet' configuration, with her slow-fall boots letting her bound around the battlefield.

Her only out-and-out super-power is a danger sense that mirrors her 'Pinkie Sense'. Her primary method of attack is her party cannon, a BFG's BFG. A Ghostbuster-esque proton stream allows her to giggle at the ghostie while missile barrage and grenade launcher options give her plenty of flash and bang.

Tying up that many points in an Easy to Lose Device is always a risk, but luckily Pinkie's got a couple more options to fall back on. Without her weapon, she can switch all the way to being Attack shifted with her martial arts training and Acrobatic Bluff, giving anyone expecting an inaccurate heavy-hitter a surprise. What's more, she's accompanied by Gummy, her pet alligator. Pet giant alligator in this case!

Character Name: Canadian Shield
Power Level: 13 (215PP)
Trade-Offs: -3 Attack / +3 Damage, -5 Defense / +5 Toughness

Alternate Identity: Elizabeth Combs
Identity: Public
Birthplace: Petawawa, Ontario
Occupation: Federally Funded Superhero
Affiliations: True North, Canadian Government, Igneous Royal Family
Family: Corporal Jake Combs [Father], Lady Felsi of House Rhyolite [Mother]

Description:
Age: 32
Gender: Female
Ethnicity: Igneous/Human
Height: 6'11"
Weight: 325 lbs
Eyes: Nickel
Hair: Copper

Elizabeth Combs is the daughter of an RCD Corporal and a minor Igneous noble, of the subterranean civilization dwelling beneath much of the area surrounding Hudson Bay. Taking more after her human father, Liz is still easily recognizable, being nearly seven feet of somewhat ashen skin tone and subtle, scale-like mineral deposits that run across her cheeks and down her spine. Luckily her rugged good looks and confident charm made her an ideal poster woman for the government funded Canadian super team when her geokinetic powers, present from birth, began to develop in earnest. Favouring creating rocky armor and weapons to enhance her already considerable toughness and strength, Canadian Shield is also a decisive leader on and off the battlefield. She's a canny political player, but always stops short of compromising her high ideals, something that has earned her the respect of even her more difficult teammates.

Jaeger Piloting

Drift Checks

At the beginning of each round, each jaeger pilot must make a drift check. This is a Will Save with a difficulty equal to 10 + the difference between the pilot's Charisma scores. For example, if their Charisma scores are 12 and 17 respectively, they are each rolling against a DC 15 Will Save.

If both pilots make the drift check, they are considered in alignment and all rolls made by the jaeger for the following round use the higher of each pilot's bonuses for a given score. This includes attack rolls, saving throws and skill checks. The higher bonus is used to determine Defense and any circumstance bonuses from feats such as Favoured Enemy apply.

If one pilot fails the drift check, their alignment falters and all rolls made by the jaeger for the following round use the lower of each pilot's bonuses for a given score and circumstance bonuses may not be applied.

If both pilots fail the drift check, they fall out of alignment and the jaeger is dazed for one round, unable to take any actions but defending normally, using the lower of the two pilot's bonuses to determine saving throw bonuses and Defense.

If both pilots succeed by 5 or more, they are in perfect alignment and receive a temporary Hero Point to be spent in the following round. This HP may be spent in any of the usual manners but disappears at the beginning of the next round if unspent.

 

Drift Compatibility

Several factors can convey bonuses or penalties to drift checks. Bonuses and penalties are cumulative but each may apply only once.

  • Immediate relatives and long term romantic partners receive +1 to drift checks with each other.
  • Pilots who grew up together or who shared a significantly defining event receive +1 to drift checks with each other.
  • Characters who share a Communication Link or have otherwise spent significant amounts of time telepathically linked receive +2 to drift checks with each other.
  • One rank of Teamwork grants a pilot +1 to their own drift check. Three ranks grants a +2 bonus.
  • Eidetic Memory imposes a -1 penalty on the other pilot's drift check.
  • The Nightmares drawback or similar Complications apply a -1 penalty to both pilots' drift checks.
  • Powers with the telepathy or technopathy descriptors grant a pilot +1 to their own drift check.
  • A pilot receives a +1 bonus to drift checks with someone named in an overall positive manner in their character sheet's history or Complications, such as Friendship, Responsibility or Rivalry. This bonus does not stack with the bonus for immediate relatives and romantic partners.
  • A pilot receives a -2 penalty to drift checks with someone named in a negative manner in their character sheet's history or Complications, such as Enemy, Grudge or Hatred.

The GM should feel free to impart additional circumstance bonuses or penalties as seems appropriate.

Eyes: Blue
Hair: Medium Brown

Paul Bouchard was a young blue collar worker from Dorval whose chance at an athletic scholarship as a goalie had been cut short thanks to stepping out of the crease to throw down his gloves one time too many. Bouchard's stubborn streak manifested itself in his job as an assembly line worker where he drove himself to learn as much of the engineering principles behind the areospace components he helped build as he could on his own time. Because of that, when a rush order on a limited run of components came his way, he recognized them as pieces of a powered gauntlet moments before heavily armed technology pirates broke into the factory to steal them. Managing to cobble together the concussive blast weapon in the resulting chaos, Bouchard defeated the thieves and saved the lives of his coworkers. An instant media sensation, he was soon tapped to don the full, prototype armor as the one-man air force, Bombardier.

Character Name: Wendy Go

Trade-Offs: +5 Damage/-5 Attack (Wendigo Form), +1 Defense/-1 Toughness (Human Form)

Alternate Identity: Becky Shuster
Identity: Registered, Semi-Public

Eyes: Hazel
Hair: Dark Chocolate Brown with White Streak

Becky Shuster was working a summer job as an airport attendant when a chance encounter with a group of visiting Claremont students ended with her possession by a wendigo spirit in the woods outside of Thunder Bay, transforming her into a creature of terrible strength and unspeakable hunger! Thankfully her new friends were able to subdue her and True North's consulting mystic Daniel Storm spent nearly two years training her to keep her bestial side under tenuous control. Now a junior member of the national superteam, Wendy Go is a young woman doing her best to prove herself in a suddenly much larger, stranger world. Curious and enthusiastic by nature, Becky is eager to learn from her more experienced teammates but her fear of losing control again has added a streak of glum introspection to her personality that matches the streak of white in her hair.

Character Name: Osla Jónsdóttir
Power Level: 10 (150PP)
Trade-Offs: +4 Attack / -4 Damage, +2 Defence / -2 Toughness

Alternate Identity:
Identity: Public in Asgard
Birthplace: Valhalla
Occupation: Valkyrie
Affiliations: Aesir, Valkyries, Loki (grudgingly)
Family: John Fraser (Arrowhawk, father), Vivian Kriger (Valkyrie, mother, deceased)

Description:

Hair: Straw Blonde

When Vivian Kriger was chosen to be the champion of Odin and gifted with powerful artifacts patterned after the weapons and armour of Thor himself her future seemed bright. Not all tales of heroism end happily, however. Though guaranteed a place in the Norse afterlife Kriger was an inconvenient embarrassment to the Allfather, one which only became more troublesome when the Aesir realized that she was with child, the result of her passionate tryst with John Fraser, the archer Arrowhawk.

When that child, given the name Osla, came of age in that timeless kingdom she was given a place among the Valkyrie but despite her phenomenal skill her mortal heritage placed her at a disadvantage and made her the target of ridicule. Proud and determined to redeem her mother's reputation the young warrior was still skeptical when a visiting god of another pantheon suggested a way to prove her mettle on Midgard.

Still, Set introduced her to Loki and the God of Mischief, convinced of the entertainment potential in aiding the underdog archer, bestowed upon her raiment to replace what had been confiscated from her mother. Heeding the call to defend the innocent from Typhon, Father of All Monsters, Osla Jónsdóttir set off across the Bifröst for the mortal realm and a surprising reunion...

In Brief: Victorian-era alchemist struggling to contain a merciless force of nature.

Theme: Heads Will Roll by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

 

Alternate Identity: Winifred Wei
Identity: Semi-Secret
Birthplace: London, England
Occupation: Student
Affiliations: Claremont Academy
FamilyNone Living; Wei Chao (father, deceased), Wei Xia (mother, deceased)

 

Description:
Age: 16 (Subjectively; DoB: April, 1839)
Gender: Female
Ethnicity: British Chinese
Height: 5'4" / 8'6"
Weight: 120 lbs. / 600 lbs.
Eyes: Green
Hair: Black

 

Winifred Wei is a slim young woman saved waifishness only by her impeccable comportment and intense demeanor. Her jet black hair reaches down to her waist but is almost always done up in a twisted bun that strikingly frames her heart-shaped face. Perpetual dark circles under her eyes speak to a lack of sleep and abundance of stress but her tone of voice is nevertheless clipped and precise. In clothing she prefers subdued colours and a noticeably more formal manner than her modern day peers, though she's been quick to take advantage of the greater mobility of modern fashions. When expecting trouble she carries a broad leather bandolier filled with stoppered vials of alarmingly coloured alchemical concoctions and is rarely seen without her elegant mahogany walking stick with its serpentine styled head.

 

Alkahest, by contrast, is a pallid mass of twisting, too-dense muscle with a greyish, corpse-like tint. Towering even with a pronounced stoop, her proportions are only nominally human and give only the most general indication of gender. Milky white eyes staring out from behind long, disheveled hair and a flat expression betray nothing as the beast stalks her target with a terrifying single-mindedness. The transformation is violent and chaotic, shredding conventional clothing and taxing the capabilities of skin-tight morphic molecules. Fortunately the Academy has been able to provide her with a looser, high collared lab coat made of the adaptive material.

 

History:
Wei Chao emigrated from Hong Kong to London in 1833 by taking a job as a deckhand for a prominent shipping company. Skilled at absorbing and applying new information and with a humble charm that ingratiated him with the company's officers, he made himself an indispensable assistant to the ship's doctor when a seafaring mishap left several sailors injured. With the help of his sponsor, in impressively short order and causing something of a stir Chao was accepted to the University of Cambridge to study medicine. Artfully walking the line between impressing his teachers and peers with his abilities without stepping on anyone's toes in a few year's time he had established himself enough to send for his wife, Xia. Similarly brilliant, she soundly invested the early profits of her husband's modest practice and the couple made themselves quite comfortable.

 

In 1839, after considerable difficulty, they had a daughter, Winifred. Fully assimilated and conscious of their social standing Chao and Xia practiced only enough of their homeland's traditions to benefit from the Western fascination with orientalism. Raised as a native Londoner, Winifred demonstrated prodigious intelligence from a very young age, if not the restraint and moderation her parent's practiced so carefully. Frustrated by the assumptions leveled against her based on ethnicity, gender and youth her talents for biting sarcasm and humiliating her detractors were a frequent source of contention at home. Assimilated or not, Chao was uncomfortable with the idea of his daughter marrying an Englishman and was convinced after months of cajoling to allow her to work as his assistant, at least for the time being.

 

Having devoured the contents of her father's medical texts even as a child, as a teenager Winifred chafed under the limited scope of a practicing physician. Scouring the city for more obscure tomes she found herself drawn into the booming community of fringe researchers who preferred to refer to their collective areas of study as 'rogue science' but were referred to in hushed tones in polite society as simply mad. Thrilled to learn from such progressive - if frequently unhinged - thinkers Winifred was particularly drawn to the mysteries of alchemy, throwing herself into its study unbeknownst to her parents.

 

Starting with a foundation in the alchemy of Hellenistic Egypt, pouring over diagrams purportedly copied from originals saved from the Library of Alexandria, she studied the writings of Jābir ibn Hayyān and Roger Bacon, Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa and Jan Baptist van Helmont among so many others. She found early success in dramatically improving the effectiveness of her father's tonics and moved on to more outlandish concoctions, such as a sticky tar that burst into flames when it came into contact with air and in one case a particularly potent airborne hallucinogen. Expanding her scope to Chinese alchemy and Indian rasayāna then even dubious information surrounding supernatural creatures she began to form her own theories about a serum that would not only cure infirmity but strengthen a person to the limits of human capability, granting perfect health, clarity and perhaps even immortality.

 

Her initial experiments along these lines were not promising but she could feel herself getting closer, on the very cusp of a monumental breakthrough. It was at this point that her parents discovered the increasingly conspicuous laboratory she had been hiding in her room along with her collection of esoteric writings. Horrified and frightened both for Winifred's safety and the family's public image they forbade her from any further scientific studies. Blaming themselves for leaving her too idle they hurriedly made plans to have her married off, hoping to put the whole thing behind them before the matter could become explosively public - perhaps literally.

 

Railing against the injustice and indignity, Winifred locked herself in her room and redoubled her efforts in a frenzy. Deciding that the consequences could be damned, she downed the latest version of her serum and immediately doubled over in agony. What followed she was only ever able to recall in a hazy blur: tearing clothing, the wall of her family home reduced to loose brick and dust, a thunderous boom and spreading flame, sharp cracks and wet pops and shouting constabulary. When she came to, gasping for air and wearing tattered rags, barely strong enough to stand, she knew she had created something truly monstrous, become something monstrous. She could feel the creature, her other self, barely contained and threatening to emerge again and could see only one solution.

 

Stumbling from shadow to shadow, she broke into the hidden laboratory of one of her fellow rogue scientists she mixed a poison that would do more than just kill her, even taking into account the formidable fortitude she estimated the creature to possess. It would render her body wholly inert, preventing any chance of contamination or of her work being replicated through the study of her remains. With a sobbed plea for forgiveness, she swallowed the draught. Her flesh hardened, turning to a glossy, jade-like substance and leaving Winifred Wei, alchemical prodigy, an unexplained statue of a huddled, grief stricken youth.

 

Personality & Motivation:
Well aware of her own impressive intelligence and used to having to prove it to others, Winifred has had her confidence severely undercut by the botched serum that created Alkahest. Given what now happens when she becomes upset, however, both aspects have been bottled up as best she can manage. She strives to be collected and professional at all times, leaving her seeming somewhat cold and distant apart from a dry wit that seeps through from time to time. The only thing her condition hasn't been able to damped is her curiosity and need to understand how things work. She is ultimately a scientist before all else and she now has the entirely new world of the modern day to discover and peel apart. She's happiest given solitude and a well stocked chemistry lab.

 

Although her transformed state is obviously more physically capable Winifred sees little potential for good in it. Principled and steadfast, she won't back down from a confrontation particularly in the defense of others but much prefers to labour under her own merits, doing everything she reasonably can to avoid turning into Alkahest. While she views the creature as a largely separate entity from herself she considers herself responsible for its actions all the same and works hard to do as much good as she can when she's herself to make up for them.

 

Powers & Tactics:
In combat Reagent carries a bandolier of flasks with a variety of alchemical potions. These range from a fairly straight-forward explosive to a fast acting hallucinogenic cloud to a draught that rapidly accelerates natural healing. Most of these she tosses like grenades, the flasks shattering on impact and releasing their contents, but since she can only carry so many at a time and because they are indiscriminate in their effects she in careful to choose her moments. More precise is her reinforced walking stick with which she is fully proficient but if a conflict has come down to a face to face confrontation something has probably gone very wrong along the way.

 

Alkahest is a single-minded force of nature. It has no tactics, only its target, which it pursues without pause or mercy. Strong and nigh-invulnerable, Alkahest will plow through walls, obstacles, friend and foe alike to get at the subject of its unspoken wrath then pummel it until it stops moving. Once that happens the creature chooses a new target, on and on until it has calmed enough to revert back to an exhausted Winifred.


Complications:
Chemical Mixture That Creates Chaos: 
Winifred is continuing to experiment with the serum that turned her into Alkahest, searching for a cure. Dangerous knowledge in the wrong hands.
 

Electing to Ignore It: Winifred was an iconoclast to begin with and removed from concerns over societal standing she's apt to simply ignore any instruction with which she doesn't agree.
 

Need a Little Old-Fashioned: Winifred clings to certain mannerisms such as her style of clothing to mitigate her future shock.
 

No Version of This: Upon transforming Alkahest will pursue whomever or whatever triggered the stress reaction with an inhuman single-mindedness, be they friend or foe.
 

So That's What That Does: An alchemist learns through experimentation! Winifred's sense of inquiry frequently outweighs her sense of caution.
 

Some Form of Electricity: While a prodigy in her own time Winifred has missed out on more than a century of scientific advancements that are now common knowledge.
 

Take That Away: Winifred is without a home, funds or familial connections. She relies on Claremont Academy for the necessities.
 

That's My Secret: Winifred's uncontrollable transformation into Alkahest is triggered by elevated stress, be it anger, fear or other trauma. She has to constantly work to keep her emotions in check.

In Brief: Contender, cop, criminal, concrete.

Theme: Push and Pull by July Talk

 

Alternate Identity: Lou Lubrano (Secret)

Birthplace: Stark Hill, Bedlam City

Base of Operations: Converted Warehouse

Occupation: Hitter

Affiliations: The Fix, BCPD [Formerly], Scarpia Family [Formerly]

Family: Nora D'Angelo [Ex-Wife], Max Lubrano [Son]

 

Description:

Age: 44 (DoB: 1972)
Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Italian-American

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 215 lbs

Eyes: Ice Blue

Hair: Grey, Black Beard

 

Lou's layers of muscle are built for function rather than aesthetics and mostly hidden under the perpetually rumbled suits he wears. His hair, combed back off of his lined face, has gone uniformly grey but his beard remains jet black and notably better maintained than most of his appearance. He stands with his back straight and shoulders squared but his unassuming manner he still tends to fade into a crowd. He never drinks while he's working and never smokes when he's not but the lingering scent of both suggest he still does more of both than he ought.

 

 

History: Lou was never a great boxer. Making up for any lack of finesse with an ability to soak up monumental amounts of punishment, he was good enough to earn a modest scholarship and some respect in the neighbourhood but he never considered himself anything more than a big fish in a small pond. Real respect meant being more than a second rate prizefighter. Real respect in Bedlam meant joining up with a gang and he knew only one gang had a retirement plan: the police.

 

Lou was never a great cop. The city didn't provide that opportunity. They didn't have a fraction of the resources to deal with all of the crime in Bedlam anyway so where was the harm in taking a bribe to let the organized, orderly stuff slide? Picking your battles was just another job skill and Lou wasn't afraid of putting in the work to learn. Nobody could say he didn't do some good and more people went home happy than not. Besides, it wasn't like the basic salary was worth risking his neck over and he had a family to think about.

 

Lou was never a great husband. He met Nora at a college when her date made the poor decision to take a swing at him. He liked that she was pretty and quick witted, she liked that he was ambitious and laughed loudly and often. They got married the same month he graduated from the academy and joined the police force and their son Max was born a few years later. They never got around to taking that trip they talked about but maybe once they had enough set aside for Max's schooling.

 

Lou was never a great partner. It wasn't like Simmons made it easy on him, always pushing his luck, always sticking his nose where it was liable to get cut off. They should have ignored the tip about the drug lab but Simmons wanted the bust and it was only two blocks away from a school. Max had just started Grade 5. They went in without backup. It wasn't a drug lab, at least not the way they were thinking. Somebody shot. Something exploded. Lou woke up in the hospital nearly two week later. Simmons didn't.

 

Lou was never a great liar. He nearly slipped up maybe a dozen times before he finally got caught just shy of two years later; it was tough to miss a bullet bouncing off of a chin suddenly made out of the same steel as his car door. Metahumans couldn't be cops and that left Lou without a career and without friends. He took a few odd jobs but nothing stuck. He started to drink more. He never came home drunk but a lot of nights that meant he just didn't come home. Eventually he came home to an empty house and a note.

 

He sold the house, moved into a closet the landlord had the gall to call a bachelor apartment. He signed the papers Nora mailed to him from her sister's place out of state seven months after that. She put a copy of Max's latest school picture in the envelope; that went up on the nearly empty fridge. He was down to his last excuse over late rent when one of the guys he used to take money from offered to buy him a drink. Turned out there were certain people very interested in someone with Lou's specific combination of experience, skills and abilities.

 

Turned out that what Lou was truly great at was hurting bad people who'd made other bad people angry. Sometimes somebody needed to be found, sometimes something needed to be retrieved, sometimes it was just about sending a message. They gave their hitter a name and the situation got handled. He finally had respect, of a sort. The only trouble was that those names didn't always belong to people who were as bad as Lou might have liked. Sometimes they weren't that much older than his son. Lou started to think that someday he was going to be given a name and there'd turn out to be one more thing he wasn't great at.

 

 

Personality & Motivation: Lou plays his cards close to his rumpled vest, content to remain anonymous and unassuming while others posture. Focused and goal-oriented he does his best to remain professional in a line of work that's often anything but. If he feels he's not being extended that same courtesy, however, he's quick to demonstrate why respect is a wise policy.

 

That stoicism hides layers of self-reproach. Having seen both sides of the law in full Lou doesn't so much regret his indiscretions as a police office as wish that he'd been a good enough man to accomplish real good with his position. He considers himself to be a failure as a father and demonstrates a sometimes misplaced protective streak as a result. After years of doing whatever it took to get ahead or stay afloat he's begun to let his better principles guide him and found that standing up for those who need it suits him better than he'd expected.

 

 

Powers & Tactics: The drug lab Lou and his partner raided was experimenting with metahuman treatments, leading to him being doused in unstable chemicals and buried in rubble in the explosion that followed. As a result he can take on the attributes of any inorganic material he touches. Doing so greatly enhances his overall strength and durability, enough to shrug off small arms fire. The specific material he mimics determines the specific benefits or side effects he receives on top of this, such as making him more or less conductive, fire resistant or brittle.

 

As his powers provide a distinct visual Lou prefers to use them only as a last resort, favouring discretion and relative anonymity unless he finds himself otherwise outmatched. Even without them he is a competent hand-to-hand fighter with impressive endurance. When required to buy time he will gladly let an opponent wear themselves out before moving in for a decisive finishing blow but when the person he is protecting comes under immediate threat he switches to a much more aggressive style, foregoing his own safety to end a fight more quickly.

 

 

Power Descriptions: Lou takes on the appearance of the materials he mimics along with their properties. This extends to copying graffiti sprayed on a brick wall or yellow centre lines painted down a concrete road. Dents and cracks sustained while in a transformed state are translated into bruises and cuts when he reverts to flesh and blood. His powers do not extend to the clothes he wear; Lou goes through a lot of suits.

 

 

Complications:

 

Blood and Iron: Lou's son and ex-wife no longer live in Bedlam but were they in danger there are very few things that would keep him from immediately going to their aid.

Cement Overshoes: Quitting the Scarpia Family family is a poor health decision, leaving in the middle of a job even more so. Taking out Lou would be a good way to build a rep and earn points with the higher ups all at once.

Concrete Evidence: Lou goes out of his way to avoid using his powers unless there's no other choice. They draw the wrong kind of attention and getting spotted would effectively ruin any cover story he's using.

Feet of Clay: Lou is trying to be a better man but he's not there yet. He's slow to trust and slower to let go of a grudge. Convincing him to take risks for strangers may take some doing and convincing him to ask for help is all but impossible.

Glass Half Empty: Although he makes a point not to drink while on the job, Lou definitely drinks more than he should. In an unexpected emergency there's no guarantee of finding him sober or without a hangover.

Golden Rule: Respect is met with respect. Disrespect is met with percussive correction.

Steely Resolve: Though usually methodical and cautious once Lou has committed himself to a fight he's loathe to walk away. He'll take on impossible odds or weather fantastic amounts of punishment if it means keeping his word.

Tin Badge: Many of Lou's former colleagues in the BCPD take issue with his metahuman status while others resent his newer ties with the Scarpia Family. Plenty don't see any reason to choose just one reason to hate him.
