DC10: Cheval's real name is Marcus Dumont, a Vibora Bay native and former boxer. He is a well known local hero, having been active since late 2018. He has managed to use his life as a hero to become famous and wealthy, though he spends a lot of both his time and wealth to support the local community in Vibora Bay, especially in his home in the Weston District. He seems to be supernaturally strong and tough, able to assume a form where his skin becomes like iron by reciting a short poem.
