  1. GM Waterfront, Freedom City June 12th, 2017 Approximately 11 PM The heat of the day had faded to a cooler night, warm, not oppressively hot. Clouds above passed over the moon. The air smelled of saltwater by the docks. Four vehicles, two SUVs, two cars, pulled up to a modest two story office building. The men and women that got out of the vehicles were dressed in stylish, seasonal wear. Various bags and briefcases were shuffled into the building. Surrounding the central office were a series of smaller buildings and shipping containers arrayed carefully. Most of them, however, were sitting long in disuse, and the office building was maintained, but not often used.
  2. Player Name: TheThirdWay Character Name: Gyrfalcon Power Level: 10 (150/150 PP) Unspent Power Points: 0 Trade-Offs: +4 Attack, -4 Damage/+2 Defense, -2 Toughness In Brief: A cowl who plays the role to the hilt while in costume, but couldn't be more different in his secret identity. Alternate Identity: Riley Reed (Secret) Birthplace: Freedom City Residence: Downtown Freedom Base of Operations: The Nest (a quiet warehouse in Freedom) Occupation: Head of Reed Applied Technology's Consumer Product Division Affiliations: None yet Family: Noah Reed (Father) Claire Reed (Mother) Nicole Washington (Older Sister) Sean Reed (Older Brother) Marcus Reed (Older Brother) Description: Age: 24 (June 1993) Gender: Male Ethnicity: Caucasian Height: 5'9" Weight: 150 lbs Eyes: Green Hair: Dark brown Riley sports a thin, wiry build, on a frame of average height. He typically keeps his dark brown hair in a close crop. His clean-shaven, soft-featured face give him a slightly younger appearance. While he is out on the town, he prefers to wear loose-fitting hipster fashion or businesswear. When patrolling as Gyrfalcon, Riley sports a costume that fits the form of his body closely but takes great pains to hide his face. The costume itself is primarily black with silver accents that give off a dull shine, plus a matching cape. He also wears a cowl with a visor that conceals the upper half of his face and comes to a point over his nose. History: Riley is the definition of a trust fund baby. He was born to two rich families and grew up living a charmed life. Born to the founders of Reed Applied Technologies, his parents afforded him every opportunity to succeed in life. Whenever he or any of his siblings took an interest in something, his parents were more than happy to fund their newest hobby. The Reeds had planned to pass their business interests along to their children, but Riley had little interest in technology or business management. Over his formative years, he developed a love for gymnastics and a fondness for kitschy detectives novels, but little in the way of what could be called "marketable skills." While he attempted to work his various hobbies into a paying career, he eventually settled for his predestined role in the family business. He was allowed to manage a small portion of Reed Applied Technologies. It was a successful and cushy position, but Riley felt dissatisfied regardless. Feeling as though he had nothing to actually contribute to the business left him unfulfilled, and left him looking for ways he could build something of his own and to do good. As a Freedom City native, it seemed only natural that his attention would eventually be drawn to superheroes. While he didn't have any powers or any great expertise to fall back on, he looked to the many cowls of the past as examples and asked himself, "If they can save the city with just gadgets, why can't I?" He spirited away some of his personal savings for the outfit, motorcycle, and hideout, and requisitioned some Reed technology for the rest of his gear, and designed a personality the shadowy detectives that he admired. He spent the first several months of his super career intently researching and training in the skills he'd need as a crime fighter, going on patrol in Freedom essentially as a means of training and rehearsing his new persona, and seeking training in martial arts including aikido and taekwondo. He's only recently become relatively comfortable with the superhero lifestyle and has begun nailing down his Gyrfalcon persona, leading to his willingness to take on bigger criminals and generally make himself known. Personality and Motivation: While outside of the costume, Riley is a bright and happy-go-lucky, always willing to crack a joke or have a good time. He's deliberately created the opposite personality for his Gyrfalcon persona, behaving in a dark and intimidating manner. Beneath it, he feels that his role as Gyrfalcon is his great calling in life, and throws himself completely into it to savor both the feeling of doing good, and the satisfaction that comes with Gyrfalcon's fame. Powers and Tactics: Riley knows he is likely to be outclassed in a straight fight, so he prefers the stealthy approach, which also complements the "I am the night" personality he's attempted to cultivate. While he takes the time to plan out his battles before engaging, he prefers to finish them in the most impressive manner he can. Power Descriptions: Lacking any proper powers, Riley prefers his gadgets to follow the aesthetic of entertainment tech, sleek and chromed. He's not picky as long as it's sufficiently flashy and matches the costume. His boomerangs, which he has dubbed "Raptorangs," are shiny chrome and are designed like stylized birds. His motorcycle is the same shade of black as his costume, with a large, swooping panel over the front resembling his costume's visor. His HQ is a more recent investment, and is kept simple and spartan. Complications: Fortune and Glory: He professes to be above it, but Riley adores the limelight that superheroing brings.. He can be easily tempted by the potential for glory and fame. No, But I Play One On TV: Riley is still establishing his super-identity. He may, especially when stressed, switch to his normal wisecracking behavior while in his Gyrfalcon persona, or behave in the dark and quiet manner of Gyrfalcon while living his day-to-day life. Legitimate Businessman: Riley can't devote his entire working life to superheroing without arousing some suspicion. He needs to take time away from the costume to run his business on occassion, a fact which he isn't thrilled with. Awkward Teenage Years: Riley's early period as Gyrfalcon, before he had built up his skills and demeanor, aren't very far behind him. He will occasionally run into someone he encountered during his beginner days, meaning they may think of him as his former, more bumbling self.
