Vibora Bay. Easton Tangle. Dragoneer’s Townhouse. It had been a few-ish days since the whole giant…zombie…lizard…thing…and Dragoneer was still just a bit cranky. It was all right, honestly, he’d had a concert and then a match so he’d been having a busy and productive night. But maaaaan, what a way to make your debut onto the scene. UDK was dressed as he always was, and was pacing in front of his own front door. He’d never admit it, but meeting new people was stressful. He never knew how they’d respond to his unique brand of personal charisma. The townhouse was full of his merchandise (posters, action figures, one standee, etc), with photos of friends and family (except those with the surname Maguire) scattered on the walls and tables. Hey, Niro? The invitations went out, right? I didn’t daydream that? Didn’t think about it instead of doing it? Niro Saki, bestest pal to the one and only Ultimate Dragon Knight, was seated on UDK’s couch, reading a thin paperback. He too, was dressed as he always was. Around him on a few tables was a lovely spread of refreshments. The bigscreen television was on but muted. He did not look up. No, Dragoneer. You followed through. I watched. UDK nodded and kept pacing. Cool. Cool cool cool. Cool. I guess they’ll…be here when they’ll be here. He blew air out through his mouth. Niro turned the page. A watched pot never boils. The moment I leave is when the first one shows up. Paranoia. Gospel truth. I somehow doubt that. Dragoneer stopped pacing. All right, I’ll…watch TV, I guess. He sat down in his recliner and unmuted the television for the latest celebrity news. Ironically, it was not news to him. Because it was about him and his move to Vibora. Click. New channel, hello sports.
Sadly, the Ultimate Dragon Knight had to work and thus was not in town when Storm of the Century happened. Bitter, he is. But whatever. Because Dragoneer a rich, charismatic fellow who vastly prefers getting his way to anything else and thus can be very persuasive. Surely he can get the Mayor of Vibora (or whoever else) to invite Vibora's new heroes to his house for a meet up and maybe a bit of a housewarming party? Could they possibly turn down one of the most famous celebrities on the planet? Well, I'm not the one who knows that. That would be you.

History: Dragoneer wasn’t both with that as his only legal name, of course. He was born Davis Maguire, not that he’s answered to that name in actual decades. He was the wild middle child of five, then seven (the fraternal twins at the end were a bit of a surprise). Absolutely uncontrollable, he did whatever he wanted to do. Though that’s not how he framed it in his mind, of course. We’re all the heroes of our own stories. Alcohol, sex, drugs, crazy stunts, he did it all. He started wrestling (badly) at 15, having lied to the local promotion about his age. At 18, he changed his name, left Boise and didn’t look back. His life didn’t change all that much. Wrestling for cash that was quickly spent on booze and partying. However, he did have a immense talent for wrestling and had picked up enough to get noticed. Dragoneer went to Japan. He learned a lot during his stay. He returned to the US with better skills, the power of moderation, and a contract with the biggest pro wrestling organization in the US. Not too long afterward, he helped found the Avenging Dragons. Their first album was a smash hit, and D was an instant celebrity. Not that he did much with it, as wrestling was his main focus at the time. It was after this when he first met Luis Guiterrez. They partnered with Niro Saki to form the Young Guns faction. The group was a big success, leading to multiple championship runs. Luis always encouraged Dragoneer to be a better man, but at the time UDK was deaf to that kind of talk. The success of the group reached a peak, but not too longer after that peak, Luis died of an unnoticed enlarged heart. Dragoneer was deeply affected by Luis’s death, and pledged himself to be a better man. Unbeknownst to literally anyone else, the catalyst for his name change was a dragon he met in a field outside of Boise as a child. The dragon granted the teenage Davis magical power for reasons it did not deign to share, while laughing the entire time. It was a unusual dragon, to say the least. With Dragoneer’s newfound commitment to being better, he decided to embrace fatherhood (as he had studiously ignored their existence before) and attempt to be a superhero with his powers. Surprisingly, the former was considerably easier and embarrassed, he stopped superheroing. He put more focus on his rock career (they’d done a few more hit albums, but his touring presence was erratic at best) and eased off on his wrestling career for a little while. In short, Dragoneer attempted to finally mature from a selfish and petulant child to a full grown adult. Success was far from easy. But with generous help from his remaining friends and kid sister, he made the transition as best he could. Now, with even his youngest away at university, Dragoneer is going to make a serious attempt to be a superhero. Vibora Bay is a good place to start doing that, he thinks. His life is settled in a way that it previously hadn’t been. AvDrag are among the grizzled veterans of the Top 10 charts. D himself is a massive crossover star, and a multi-time world champion. One last hill to climb. Personality & Motivation: At his core, Dragoneer is the kind of innately selfish person who wants everything his way all the time and automatically assumes that only things that affect him are important and/or worthy of his attention. No exceptions. This has always been fairly well covered by an ultra easygoing manner and immense personal charisma. What is different now from his early days is that he has a fully functioning conscience, and is very mindful of his essential nature. He doesn’t just do whatever he wants, he does whatever he thinks the right thing to do is. He is living proof that a person does not have to be a slave to their nature, but in fact can choose who they are. He also has immense confidence in himself, which let’s be honest is a big ol’ ego. Honestly, he’s never acted his age, so why start now? Life’s much more fun when you’re twenty something, right? Additionally, UDK’s never been exactly all there. Just a little bit crazy. So there’s that. His motivation is pretty simple, but encompasses the whole of what he does what he does now. He wants to be a good man. To feel redeemed for the sins of his selfish past. One day. Maybe. Powers & Tactics: Dragoneer’s powers are basically a magical transformation. Armor of hard dragon scales, functional wings on the armor, a lance that’s a part of the armor, and fire breath out of the helmet. He’s also better in combat overall. Tactically, he’s just a hit ‘em until they stay down kind of guy. He hasn’t really thought to develop anything more complex than that, aside from stripping out the dodge bonus (with Acrobatic Bluff) if he’s having trouble hitting or damaging (because follow up Power Attack). Power Descriptions: Green dragonscale plate armor with wings. Lance generated out of same that he can stab with or throw and have return to him. Fire breath (out of the helmet) in a cone. That’s it. Complications: World Famous: Dragoneer is a well known public figure. A bonafide celebrity. This means whatever he does tends to be some kind of news. He, his family, and his friends tend to get stalked by paparazzi. And anyone with access to the internet can find their faces, names, and probably their personal addresses. When this sort of thing becomes a problem for a superhero, a GM may award a Hero Point Ultimate Dragon Knight: Being a Dragon Knight does technically come with responsibilities to the dragon who granted him the power, not that the big lizard’s ever called in that marker. Dragoneer is also marked in a way that supernatural senses can effortlessly detect. And this may cause certain beings to assume what his allegiance is before he even opens his mouth. When this becomes a problem, a GM may award a Hero Point. World’s Finest…Even At Screwing Up: So…Dragoneer has a big ego, a couple of his screws are a little bit loose (who’s literally Fearless altogether?), and he’s known for sometimes making…questionable…decisions based on Insane Troll Logic. Basically, this is the “make D do the exact wrong thing” Complication. GMs can hit this one as often as seems reasonable. No matter how hard he tries to be better, he’ll always also be this guy. God love him. I Had A Friend: A decade plus later, and Dragoneer still desperately misses Luis Guiterrez. They were very, very close friends. D would be over the moon to have an opportunity to speak with Luis again. He wants the Puerto Rican’s approval desperately. This can obviously, be used against him. To trick him or force him into being his worst self at the worst possible time. Or to just use the face and voice to shatter his emotions. Or violate the grave to inspire an unreasoning rage. A GM may award a Hero Point for this or whatever similar thing they may think of.
