  1. First, I must be upfront. I live in a small neighborhood in Dallas. We're cleaning and picking up the pieces where we live. That said, I'll be able for play most of Sunday afternoon and sporadic to nil during the week. That said, I'm looking for some others to play with who can handle such a schedule. Vitae is a new hero who came out of the March bioincident. He's a general practitioner doctor who specializes in metahumans during the day. He has a goal of starting his own private practice, but for now he works at McNider Hospital. During his off-time he is starting to get into the heroics trade. The bioincident gave him biokinetic and shapeshifting powers and he uses them to protect the innocent. Anyone who'd like to do something, hit me up here. Thanks :)
  2. Player Name: Cowboy Character Name: Vitae Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: -2 Attack / +2 Damage, -2 Defense / +2 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 0 Progress To Bronze Status: 0/30 In Brief: A doctor with the touch of life. Alternate Identity: Dr. Harry Walker Identity: Secret Birthplace: Atlanta, Georgia Occupation: Doctor Affiliations: McNider Hospital, Freedom City University alumnus Family: Jeremiah Walker (father), Yukari Walker (mother) Description: Age: 28 (DoB: July 4, 1983) Apparent Age: mid twenties Gender: Male Ethnicity: Asian-American Height: 5'7" Weight: 198 pounds Eyes: brown Hair: black In his civilian form he wears fake glasses (they're trendy, he says with a small smile) and baggy clothes to hide his physique. He slouches a lot also. In his hero form, he is a tall-walking wall of a man who doesn't need glasses at all. See below. Power Descriptions: His Life Blast is a large green ball of energy that flies at the enemy very fast. It disrupts the targets life energy and hurts them. His Sickening Touch causes his whole body to turn black and until discharged, when he does hit the target a random infliction will befall the target for a short time. On the other hand, his Healing Touch causes his body to turn white, when he touches a target, the white discharges and the target loses most if not all injuries. And then there's when he turns into a giant bear! He doesn't know what type of bear it is, it's bear he's seen on TV and it's huge. And he can do it, so he does when there are no other answers. His Enhanced Constitution and his Protection have no outward appearance. History: Harry Walker was a meek kid. Growing up he was a short runt of a kid that would always draw the bullies ire. It wasn't until he started lifting weights and working that he gained the confidence to stand up to his aggressors and protect others from harm. Through out his middle and high school years he was known as one who would protect anyone from anyone else picking on them. It was in high school that he found his calling. Science. Particularly medical science. He wanted to study the human body and how it worked. He wanted to know everything about it. This would start his life long study to become a doctor. He graduated his class with top honors and got a scholorship to learn at Freedom City University. The last ten years of his life has been as standard as anyone living in Freedom City. Sure you had the obvious yearly Invasion of aliens or demons and whatsuch, but the heroes were always there to protect everyone. He respected that. People would ask him who his favorite superhero was, and he would answer, "the one that saves the day." It wasn't until Spring 2012 that his life changed. There was a citywide epidemic of the water being contaminated and giving EVERYONE superpowers. Harry was not left out of this. He began to feel something inside of him wantinging to get out. In one giant explosion he turned into a hulking beast! If it werent for a couple of heroes helping him he would have gone on a rampage! But he ended up helping people, like a hero should! By the end of it he was cured of his hulk out and the city was returned to normal as usual. Though he seemed to retain a bit of left over energy. He was shocked by this, but told no one. This was his chance to pay back the superheroes that had helped him all his life, to become a protector of the innocent again. This time on a MUCH LARGER SCALE! Personality & Motivation: In his civilian form he is a gentle fellow, he always says what he means, but the guy seems like a big pushover. He nice to a fault, some would say overly nice. In his hero form he's much more open and free with his words, like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders. He's still nice, but he doesn't mince words and no one would mistake him for a pushover. Powers & Tactics: Blast it if it's far away. touch it if it's up close. He a doctor dammit, not a tactician. Complications: Hippocratic Oath: He's taken an oath to heal the injured. New hero: Not everyone knows who Vitae is.

  3. Just letting you know I'm not gone. Moving around quite a bit, but not gone. Heavenfire
  4. Player Name: Cowboy Character Name: Heavenfire Power Level: 10 (150/150PP) Trade-Offs: +2 Defense / -2 Toughness Unspent Power Points: 0 Progress To Bronze Status: 0/30 In Brief: The prodigal son returns home as a champion of heaven Alternate Identity: Micah Brown Identity: Secret Birthplace: Dothan, Alabama Occupation: College Student (funded by parents) Affiliations: Freedom League, Heaven Family: George Brown (father), Stephanie Brown (mother), Faith Brown (younger sister) Description: Age: 21 (DoB: 1990) Apparent Age: early twenties Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 6'1" Weight: 160 pounds Eyes: Blue Hair: Brown Out of his clothes, Micah looks well built. He is not the bodybuilder type, but he does enough to keep the strong physique. He keeps his hair shaved down and has a light beard. Having spent a lot of time out in the sun, he is very tanned. He has exactly two tattoos. One from his former fraternity (it's below his chest, above his stomach). The other is a trbal designed sun on his left shoulder. He dresses casually, though he does look nice in a suit. His posture is loose, but confident. Power Descriptions: Micah's powers turn him into a great golden flaming humanoid with no distinguishing features. He is a walking fire. He can use his powers to harm evildoers in a variety of ways, but he can also use Heaven's Flame to cure those that need it. With his aura he glows a little brighter than his regular flaming form. His bolts look in lightning, if lightning were golden and on fire. The Heaven Storm is him opening up the heavens and calling down a symphony of Heaven Bolts all around. His healing powers make the healed glow a little bit. Not like him, but more like a soft light. This lasts for a while, but Micah can't turn it off, he figures that He turns it off when He wants to. His flight looks like a large pair of fiery angel wings. History: Micah was born into a church family. His father was the preacher at a small southern baptist church, his grandfather was a deacon (and the former pastor) and his great-grandfather was one of the founding members of the church, He was next. They were preparing him to take over the role when his father wasn;'t able to do it anymore. Now he didn't not believe in the faith. He grew up in it. Yet, he didn't believe it was his calling. Though he knew he had a duty to do, so he reluctantly accepted with no complaints. He just wanted to get out and live a little. They were sending him to college to get his degree in theology. Micah happily accepted, but not for reasons his parents wanted. He would be half way across the state, and besides the irregular check up from his family, he'd be out of sight from them. This would be sort of a sabbatical for him. This would be his chance for freedom! When he got there he made a few friends. He was digging the college life. It was not as eventful as he thought it would be for the first month or so. He did a few silly things that he wasn't supposed to do. He drank his first beer and smoked his first joint. His friends said it would loosen him up. While he was hesitant at first, when he saw it was mostly harmless, he was ok with it. He tried to keep the balance of having fun and actually learning balanced. Then came his first actual party. It was fraternity rush time! The fraternity had these little excesses to loosen up the returning members and attract new members. It was an informal tactic, but it was fun and it did give them some time to meet their new pledges on a personal level. Micah enjoyed what he remembered of it. Though he was quite shocked when he woke up with a girl he didn't know and never saw again after that. He justified it as one of those minor things. Just one of the long list of minor justifications. Micah would come back to the fraternity after reading some literature on it. They helped the community and had some influential names in their alumni. So that was definitely a plus. What he didn't know was that their pass transgressions were steep, though hidden by said powerful names. Eventually getting into the fraternity after a grueling haze/hell week, he was chosen as one of the new brothers. He even got a tattoo (that was mandatory) to forever mark him as one of the few that made it. While the fraternity did their fair share of humanitarian work, their antics were quite harsher than Micah expected. Though Micah was supposed to keep these secret. It wasn't like they alienated him either. The way they made these bad things sound was almost like it was second nature. Those second nature things just happened to be some criminal activities. Theft of property was treated as "Robin Hood". A few masked intimidations of people that needed to back of never turned violent, but then again the threats they made never suggested they wouldn't. Finally there was the "underground fundraising drives" which sold more than a few things people shouldn't be able to buy. By his third year, Micah was par for the course for these things. He needed something, they got it for him, they needed something for it, he knew exactly where to find it and no one would know any better. There was an unquestionable loyalty between him and them. He looked out for them while they looked out for him. Unfortunately, his third year would be his last. During one of more stupid stunts of his recent life, he was driving under the influence while receiving some 'attention' from a girl WHILE a couple of his brothers were getting pictures and video. This little stunt ended with him accidentally not seeing a steel guardrail and plowing into it. His brothers received some minor cuts and bruises, he and the girl were killed on impact. When Micah woke up from his ordeal, he was sitting on the front pew in his family's church, sans clothing. No one else was around, though he was slightly embarrassed. Covering himself with a hymnal, he tried to wal out of the side door to the hallway, but it didn't budge, like it was locked there. He tried to knock on the door and cry out forhelp, but he found that he could not speak. He was scared as he remembered the night before. Everything refocused. This was his funeral! His family, extended family and even some of his frat brothers were there . Though none could see him. It was a touching ceremony. Wehn the left he found he could not leave with them. He had accepted his fate. His afterlife was to stay in this church forever. If only someone could see him or hear him. As he curled up on the last pew, he felt a tap on his shoulder. A man dressed in white slacks and a white longsleeved button up shirt looked to him. Micah thought this was it. As he sat up, the man sat next to him. "Micah, We've been watching you. I've been watching you. I know your story. Your actions the past few years, have made me wonder. Why?" Micah tried to speak up, but was cut off. "Save your excuses. I know them all. What I'm here to do is give you a second chance. There is a catch though. You'll be working for us." Micah gasped. The man smiled, "This will be your chance for redemption, son. Sure, you can have some fun, but don't go overboard this time." The man touched Micah on the shoulder and he was gone. Micah too was in a different place, but he had clothes and was alive! The Freedom League helped in earthly affairs to set him back up and to keep the dead guy coming back to life story off the news. He even got to speak with his family again. He was hesitant at first, but he wanted to be truthful. His mother and father, while awkwardly listening to the story accepted that their flesh and blood was alive. When Micah told them the catalyst for his journey home they were shocked. They didn't know what to say. His father told him to search his heart for this. If it was true, then it was his calling to the faith. They were glad that he was situating into his new life and even set him up with some cash so he could continue college again. Though this time he would have his fun more safe and sane. Finally the man in white would appear to him and tell him of his new status as a warrior of Heaven. To strike out at evil where ever it stands. It was true, this was his calling. He was now Heavenfire. Personality & Motivation: Reborn? In a sense. He's definitely been through the lowest point in his life. As the saying goes, "When you hit rock bottom, the only way you can look is up.". He's still got a piece of his old life with him, though he's balanced it out with some introspective. He's an active and fun-loving guy to hang out with, he's just not brash and self-destructive now. He carries the light of Heaven with him. He's not acting accordingly because he has to, but because he wants to. He's seen the alternatives. Being stuck somewhere for the rest of his afterlife? Not for him. His motivation comes from the heart. He's seen the dark side of life trying to run from the light. He doesn't want anyone to fall into that spiral. Powers & Tactics: Micah like to be up front in a fight. Never one to hang back, he'll chase an evildoer for until it gets tired and bring Heaven's wrath upon them. Though he will accept a plea for mercy, if they really mean it. Otherwise he'll punch the bad guy if he can and shoot the bad guy if he can't. If an ally or he looks injured enough, he'll stop and fix it. Complications: Heaven's Champion: He's not the only one out there, but he has a responsibility in some people's eyes. Those that know Micah as Heavenfire, and vice versa, sometimes hold him to a higher standard than he acts sometimes. Secret: Micah doesn't want any bad influences from his hero life sneaking into his personal life. Absolute Enemies: Demons and undead. These things set something off in his head something fierce. He cannot be around them for very long without one of them falling. Demons and undead also get the same feeling about him.
