  1. OOC thread for this thread. Cruisin' for a high-tech bruisin'. @Tiffany Korta @angrydurf @Dr Archeville @Cubismo @Grumblefloof Everyone gets 1HP to start for beginning in the midst of combat without immediate cover. Captain Imamba and the crew of the Viper Star will use the Soldier stat block from the Core Rules, with the addition of the Teamwork, Improved Aim and Prone Fighting Feats. Their weapons are blasters set to the Stun Alternate Effect. Initiative rolls for the crew: 16. Block of 10 NPCs. After Initiative rolls, the crew will take a surprise round.
  2. GM October 10th, 6PM, 2019 Riverside, the docks, the cargo freighter Viper Star At the captain's shout, the previously stunned and frightened crew dove under railings, slid back hatches or simply discarded bulky survival suits to reveal the sleek, glowing and deceptively-primitivist designs of Dakanan technology. The rustic sound of their propellor cut abruptly, replaced with the distinct thrumm of a daka-controlled propulsion system. The formerly-leisurely pace of the Viper Star noticeably jumped, the freighter turning to head for the North Bay. "I'm sorry," Captain Imamba said, thoroughly looking it, "but we can't wait until everyone who needs our help can afford it. And I can't let loyalty to Dakana stand in the way of my duty as a thinking, feeling human being. Crew, attack!" The crystal arcs crackled, red light flashed, and the air filled with the muted roar of sonic pulses hailing down on the small group of students!
  3. Claremont Academy 10:30 am, August 28th, 2019 Weather: Sunny, 77 F, Wind E 15-20 mph The visitor's parking lot was packed. A sea of people bustled amidst vehicles and toward open, shining gates. Belongings, often with grunts of effort, were loaded onto carts. Laughter echoed from caravans trickling through the main entrance and the Quad. Hand-drawn signs pointed the way, each adorned with student messages. In time, the shadows of the twin dormitories provided respite to travelers. Staff and peer counselors dotted the trail, assisting overwhelmed students on their journey. Vice-Principal Dugan was the first new face to arrivals. Her table near the gates kicked off the journey. Mr. Marquez wheeled the circuit and kept visitors on course. Mr Kuzkin and Ms. Harcourt paced about the Kord and Carter dorms, respectively. Their task, to organize the move-in, appeared to have some success. At the very least, weary travelers could partake of cold refreshments and treats outside the main doors. While outside was organized chaos, the dorm halls were like herding cats. A din permeated the air. Dozens of students, parents, and guardians wandered in search of rooms. Boxes and bags transformed the hallways into obstacle courses. The excitement of new memories and old friends contrasted with worried hugs and goodbyes. If nothing else, the dorms were places of beginnings and endings. What are you doing this beautiful day? Moving into the dorm? Helping new students?

    Helpless

    The Summer had hardly been uneventful but despite a few close calls and a thorough condemnation for reckless risks and an equally thorough commendation for breaking up the ring of Daka Crystal thieves Kam and his friends had returned to Claremont Academy. They arrived in advance of the next year with time to catch up on the news of Freedom and more importantly perhaps share their own exploits. The late summer sun found several of them gathered for lunch in the central quad trading stories. Kam let out a bright laugh, "Then they spun her." he shook his head at the memory nodding at Janus and eyeing his sister with a teasing glint in his eyes, "At least half of that giggle was genuine." he prodded perhaps foolishly given her penchant for getting the upper hand in these wars of words. Looking directly at Elizabeth he smirked, "It was like something out of one of those teen musicals." he joked easily. It would likely be less funny when those pictures circulated to where their father uncovered them. Raising his hands the Dakanan prince deflected gamely, "I will grant it certainly got people's attention."
  5. GM Egyptian Airspace, 30 minutes from Cairo Friday, April 18, 2019 (1:20 PM local time) A Danger International private jet soared above the light cloud cover over northern Egypt as it entered its final approach toward Cairo. The sleek aircraft began a gradual descent as it continued on its flight path, transporting a rather unusual group of passengers to the ancient city. It had been several months since a group of Thule Society sorcerers accompanied by several enhanced SHADOW clones had attempted to steal an ancient Egyptian artifact during the opening of an exhibit at the Hunter Museum of Natural History. What the Thule Society had not accounted for was the presence of three Claremont students who had been able to halt the theft. But as the remaining Thule sorcerer had escaped, he had made a cryptic remark about artifact, suggesting that there it possessed some secret the teens were unaware of. Two of the teens, Veronica Danger and Elizabeth Grey, had been able to confirm that the artifact (the burial mask of the Pharaoh Sanakht) resonated with magic and that it was some sort of key. But despite their best efforts to research what that might mean, they still did not know exactly what it was a key to. So over the last few months Danger International, with some assistance from the Dakanan Royal family, had made arrangements with the Egyptian authorities to allow for an investigation of Sanakht's pyramid at the Saqqara necropolis. Permission had not been obtained until after the start of the new year, meaning Veronica, Elizabeth and Kam Kingdom had to wait until Claremont’s Spring Break to take the trip to Egypt. The interior of the jet was rather luxurious, with each of the teens having a large leather seat with plenty of room around them. The seats rotated so they could turn to face the middle and each other to more easily converse about the expedition they had set out on, or could turn out towards a small table next to each of seat (with connections for laptops and cellphones).
  6. GM Marmaris, Turkey Mid-July, 2019, 11:34 AM local time The small city of Marmaris, Turkey was nestled among low foothills along the southwestern coast of Turkey, not far from the Island of Rhoades. With long, beautiful beaches and clear blue waters, the city was one of the key resort towns along the section of the Turkish coast line known as the "Turkish Riviera," or the "Turquoise Coast." For most, the primary attraction of Marmaris was the city’s vibrant nightlife, and in particular the collection of nightclubs and discos along bar street. Out in the Marmaris harbor, a sleek sixty foot yacht was making its way towards the inner part of the harbor, easily blending in with the other similar yachts and large sailing ships that filled the harbor and marina. However, unlike the majority of the passengers on the other similar vessels, the four teenagers aboard this yacht were not here for the exciting nightlife, or at least not directly. During an investigation into the possible disappearance of Daka crystals from a border region of Dakana, the teenage children of the Dakana king and two members of the Danger family had uncovered a group of mercenaries smuggling crystals across the border. Information obtained from some of the captured mercenaries had revealed that other members of the mercenary group were planning to meet with some potential buyers in Marmaris the next day. So, the four teens had arranged for a non-descript yacht to transport them to the costal town, providing them an chance to blend in with the other summer tourists looking to enjoy the excitement of the city. The sun was staring to approach its mid-day zenith, and already the temperature was over a hundred degrees Fahrenheit. The nearby beaches were crowded with people and the harbor was busy with activity as the yacht slowly made its way in.
  7. Ace smiled to his Niece and Nibling as well as the Dakanan royals. "Almost there." he jovially offered as he turned back to the console in front of him. "I'm so glad you two and your friends found something to do this summer!" he excitedly exclaimed as he swung the Danger Jet in low over the waters of the Black Sea and engaged the jets stealth capabilities, the residents would not see them coming of that much they could be certain. The rocky shore of the, until recently, abandoned soviet era base was visible ahead and growing rapidly through the windshield. The squat towers of the base and low domes of bunkers almost hidden in the overgrown forest of the remote island in disputed territory. At least three soviet successor states claimed the island as sovereign territory, and the Russian federation still claimed ownership based on the military installation. Not that any exerted real control on the remote strip of land or its dilapidated cold war era buildings. Which is probably why their targets had chosen it as a base of operations in the first place. It certainly had made it all but impossible to get official clearance to investigate the resident organization on the island in the first place. Luckily for the occupants of the jet it this weeks Danger Family Motto was 'Better to beg forgiveness than ask permission' else Arsenal would be long gone after the setbacks in Dakana and Turkey. "You kids have everything you need? All packed?" Ace glanced over his shoulder to ask like a soccer mom dropping the kids off at camp or the mall for the afternoon. "You have coms you just call when you're ready to go and I'll be in to pick you up." he assured them as they broached the islands perimeter. Once assured all were ready he flipped the switch on the console before him and the klaxons rang out as the drop bay began to open in the floor for them to make the jump. The Danger patriarch gave the teens a thumbs up when they were in position signalling them to make the drop when ready. At the sign Kam dove fearlessly through the bay and as soon as he was clear pulled the low open chute dropping neatly into the clearing they had targeted on the west end of hte island where they could make their way to the installation itself unseen the hoped. On the ground he quickly gathered his chute and made for the treeline to wait for the others to complete their jumps.
  8. June 6th 2019, 10:00 PM The Fens Crouched atop the van as it sped over the bridge Red Lynx kept his body low and balanced as his target wove in and out of the late night traffic. Technically of course he wasn't supposed to be off campus without leave. As far as he was concerned the notice of his intent to familiarize himself with bayview and the southside perhaps after curfew was as good as permission. Summers likely would not see it that way. Particularly as he crossed the river from the relative stability of south freedom for the infamous fens. But he could hardly allow the thief to escape merely by crossing a bridge. At the Riverview Inn and Suites, which had neither a river view nor suites but did have hourly rates, Robin sat in a rented hyundai camera in hand. Tracking down cheaters was not the most glamorous of work for a PI but it paid the bills and the agency could only take on so many freebie cases and keep the lights on. She heard the revving of the engine as the compensation mobile squealed around the corner and rocked to a stop in the parking lot. The pair that emerged were precisely the type she'd expect from such a fine establishment, tall muscular, wearing the Fens approximation of wealth doubtless ill gotten, armed if that oddly straight legged gait was any indication. Less expected was the thump of muted footfalls on the roof of her car as a delivery van sped past and something almost silently lept from it vaulting off her rental to scale the side of the motel and keeping to the shadows pick their way across the roof overlooking the criminals in the parking lot as they looked around then moved toward the trunk of the lowered Honda they'd arrived in.
  9. OOC for : https://www.freedomplaybypost.com/topic/10854-bang-bang-bang-ic/ Rise my minions necro threading at it's best! This parking lot is not an unusual place to meet a fence and some buyers operate out of the motel rooms. But there are also down on their luck families between homes escaping the fall chill and other bystanders there and in the neighborhood. If Those thieves pull their guns and start shooting there will be a lot of people in harms way.

    Summer Nights

    July 23, 2019: Late O'Clock at night (morning?) Janus Danger There were many common rooms, and certainly one closer to the dorm room that Janus shared with Veronica but this one had the advantage of line of sight to the door of Kam's dorm room. Janus was bored. Frightfully bored any time that they weren't training at the Espadas dojo but finding out exactly what could encourage Kam - the most rule abiding person that Janus may have ever met - to break curfew. Janus was almost entirely certain that it was a girl at this point. They'd been back for less than a week for the late summer session and by Janus' count, this was the third time that the prince had snuck out. Really, it was a time honored Claremont tradition to sneak out and do a bit of vigilante work on the side... just not one that Janus thought Kam would take part in. They were pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong. Janus stretched out on the couch, long legs dangling over the arm and absently scrolling through the phone while they waited. It wouldn't be long now. Janus bit back a yawn. Being tired through classes in the morning was absolutely worth it. When the window creaked open, Janus shifted to eye the Red Lynx from their position dangling upside down on the couch. "Welcome to the hallowed fraternity of Claremont rule breakers, your highness. So, who is she?"
  11. Hunter Museum of Natural History North End, Freedom City, New Jersey Thursday, October 18, 2018; 7:25 PM The Hunter Museum of Natural History had recently achieved something of a major coup among American antiquities museums, managing to obtain a showing of an impressive collection of Egyptian artifacts only unearthed a few years earlier on loan from the Cairo Museum. The Hunter Museum was aided in this endeavor in no small part by its connections with Danger International, which had been one of the main organizations funding the dig. In fact, members of the Danger family had been instrumental in planning the location of the dig and had been present for the major discovery. As such, the museum had worked with Danger International to have Veronica Danger speak at the opening event for the exhibition to discuss her and her parents’ work. Two of Veronica's fellow Claremonters, Elizabeth Grey and Kam Kingdom, had expressed some interest in the exhibit when they had heard her discussing it with Janus over lunch a week ago. So Veronica had made sure Prudence arranged tickets to the opening night event for the two. Now the two teenagers were seated in the crowd of well-dressed men and women that were gathered for the presentation that was the start of the opening night of the exhibit. Seats had been arranged in one of the larger rooms off the main lobby, a small podium set up toward one end of the room where the chairs were facing, and a large projection screen having been set up to one side of the podium. The room was filled with the sounds of various conversations as those gathered awaited the start of the opening presentation.

    Red Sky at Night

    October 5th, 5pm The doors to the Doom Room hissed open as the various members of the recently formed Red Squad stepped towards the entrance. From inside the gathered teenagers found what appeared to be a stereotypical dojo, rice paper walls and wooden floors with banners hanging decoratively. Crickets chirped softly, the sound carried on a gentle breeze coming from an open doorway within the simulation to a forest outside the building. Standing by the woods, admiring the simulated sunset in her school issued costume, Gauss turned her head back to the group. "Hey guys, I see everyone got my notes. So, you guys remember when Headmistress Summers grouped us up together, I figured if we're going to be a team and competing together against pretty much the rest of the school we should probably have a formal meet up to get an idea of what everyone can do power wise, any skills or talents we bring to the table, all that good stuff."

    Roar & Hiss (IC)

    The skulls weren't going to fit on the walls, and it wasn't Leroy's fault. "Dio! What is this, a prison?! Behold how cramped and mean our abode!" Covering the entire bed and part of the floor, the green dragon stretched luxuriously and gave no apparent reply. From behind the headboard, a long, forked red tongue flicked out, then vanished. "At least the barracks of the worlds liberated by my sisters, those had some rude charm!" Sighing a long-suffering sigh, Leroy sat down in a swirl of colored silk as his robes billowed. Surveying the shelves piled with bits and bobs, posters, maps, trophies, book stacks and carefully-positioned feather duster, Leroy ran a hand over his new hair. He still missed the masses of curls he'd grown up with, but the close-cut geometry of the Caesar was at least fun to skim your fingers over. He frowned, the pupils of his golden eyes narrowing to slits as he pondered the riddle of interior design logistics. He turned his eyes back to the lounging dragon "What if I just piled them at the foot and head of the bed, then I can just take them out when I want and during the day they can go over the covers?" "And where will I sssleep, O Dragon Prinsssce?" His face was draped behind the headboard, and a dragon's physiognomy is hard to read anyway, but Dio's voice carried the wry note of sarcasm perfectly. "Under that tree." Leroy pointed unthinkingly at the tall, spreading oak visible from the window. "Neither rain nor frost nor burning sun discomfort you, and I'm the one who needs sleep the more!" Dio started to reply, when his tongue, flicking out again, paused. It darted out again, for longer. "I sssmell sssomeone...your bunkmate, arrange yourssself!"
  15. Red Lynx Red Lynx is the younger twin to the White Lion and until the final competition was the heir expectant. Despite this he respects his sisters place as the Protector of Dakana and relishes finding a wider role to play for himself and his nation in the world. Taking to Freedom to begin his work he's beginning to build himself into a hero where an individual can still it seem make a difference. History Born in 2002 moments after his sister Prince Kamau grew to his pre-adulthood with want of little but also instilled with a bone deep understanding of what was owed his people for what they as rulers were granted. From a young age he trained and prepared to one day compete for the mantle of the White Lion and rulership of his country. When the moment finally came he froze. There were a thousand different scenarios running through his mind, a hundred actions to take that could spin reality on one direction or another and he froze unable to choose. His sister simply acted, didn't for a moment consider the ramifications, dangerous, reckless, glorious. She defeated their half brother Baako and ensured their families continued rulership over Dakana. He saw that she was still who Dakana needed. He would walk a different path. He has begun attending Claremont like his sister to learn more of American and the wider world. Costume and Appearance Red Lynx wears a daka infused skin tight suit of armor much like the underlayment used by the Dakanan royal guard with a harness to hold his tools and weapons. Topping it is a helm with a stylized feline shape, a nod to his chosen name, the entire costume is in a deep almost black crimson the daka crystals glimmering in the suit with stored energy when struck. He's armed with a pair of Marangu throwing clubs the heavy knobbed ends good for tripping and trapping weapons as well as use as bludgeons and more importantly with careful control allow for less than lethal attacks. Powers Red lynx doesn't have any powers int he traditional sense. He was raised a royal of Dakana however and of the line of the white lion. Even at his young age he is physically and mentally approaching the peak of humanity and has trained since near birth in the techniques and methods of the Dakana royal Guard and the White Lion themself. He is faster stronger and healthier than most with a keen mind and the natural charisma and confidence of a beloved prince. He utilizes his training and gifts as well as Dakanan technologies not available in the wider world to disable and detain enemies that they may be rehabilitated.

  16. Twenty Questions 1. Where is your hero from? Dakana 2. How would your hero physically describe him/herself? Is this different from how others would? Average height with a healthy build and sure demeanor, well groomed and mannered. Others would probably focus on the hue of his skin and put his height and build at decidedly outside average. 3. Does your hero have distinguishing speech characteristics or recurring mannerisms? When performing as Kameron Kingdom he smiles too often and too widely seeming over eager to please almost. A caricature of the west's expectation of African native peoples. He tends to steeple his fingers when altering his phrasing for an audience, pausing before speaking to compose his statement with greater care than the average teen. 4. What is your hero's motivation? Kamau has a perhaps overdeveloped sense of noblesse oblige and certainty of his peoples cultural superiority. Dakana has too long stood by and allowed the vice and violence of the colonizers to ravage the continent and indeed the world. Dakana needs to prove and show a better way and lead the world toward a more egalitarian and selfless way. 5. What are your hero's greatest strengths and weaknesses? Kamau has the fine genetics of the Dakanan royal line and the upbringing and training to be a prime physical specimen and a cunning and careful combatant in realms physical, social or cerebral. He is perhaps over reliant on these privileges and his careful and deliberate manner of engaging leads to not only a certain inflexibility but a tendency to freeze up when the unexpected happens or he needs to make a split second decision without knowing the consequences beforehand. 6. What does your hero love? What does your hero hate? Kam is still young and idealistic enough to say things like "Equality!" and "Justice!" but it's closer to say while he hates the opposite he lacks the real depth of understanding to really love beyond the fraternal sense. He 'loves' his family, and adventure, and proving himself right. 7. How would you describe your character's mental and emotional state? Kam tries and usually succeeds at a certain detached paternalism in his emotional state. trying to please the group or person he's with without being weak. A peacemaker of sorts and prides himself on a level headed logical approach. 8. What does your hero fear the most? Failure. Real failure, not just temporary setbacks or being out performed by one better trained or prepared but failure where the blame lies on his own choices being the wrong ones. 9. What is your character's greatest ambition? Prove the superiority of the Dakanan model of governance and justice, bring the benefits of Dakanan cultural and technological achievement to the wider world and see a new age of more enlightened, connected, and unified society. 10. How does your hero feel about the state of the world and his/her place in it? The world is torn asunder by greed, petty tribalism, and historic hurts that are piled on historic hurts. In his more grandiose moments he feels he could fix some or all of those divisions. But mostly he recognizes he can lead by example and one step at a time try to lessen the harm of those forces wherever he may be. 11. Does your hero have any prejudices? How does he/she get along with others? Kamau takes great effort to listen to others and make sure they feel included and cared for, even enemies. At the same time he believes in a certain cultural superiority and regal self worth that puts he and his above those not part of his people. 12. Where do your heroes loyalties lie? In what order? His Family, Dakana, those under his protection. though he'd probably say it was the opposite if asked. 13. Does your hero have a lover or partner? How do they feel about the hero now? He does not. 14. Does your hero have a family? What is the relationship there like? He is the scion of the Royal family of Dakana and the lineage of the White Lion(ness). He loves his parents though is trying to remain out from under their considerable shadow. His sister he shares a special bond with though as teens both prefer not to speak of it. He knows absolutly he can rely on her as she can rely on him even if they don't see 100% eye to eye. 15. How would the people closest to your hero describe him or her? Reserved and thoughtful, almost hesitant but driven to excellence. 16. Is your hero a role model? He hopes to be and certainly tries to live up to the responsibility of such. 17. How spiritual is your hero? Does your hero follow a religious tradition? He follows a sort of traditional ancestor worship based on his lineage and a broader spiritual belief similar to a gaian philosophy of holistic stewardship of nature and other people. 18. Is your hero part of a team, or would he/she like to be? Why? Kam is officially a member of hte Royal guard though that is primarily an honorific rank. HE is also part of Claremont and soon to be assigned to an action group there for training purposes. He's eager to work with others and build such a group into a smoothly operating team. 19. How does your hero feel about the place of metahumans and aliens on Earth? Those that are weak need to be protected, those that are strong should do hte protecting, those that try to harm their fellows or humanity need to be stopped. 20. If you could give one piece of advice to your hero, what would it be? Think of the world and it's people more complexly. Not everything can be reduced to a zero sum game and there is not always a right answer.
  17. Dakana Parliament N'Gome ya Watu, Dakana 09:00 EAT (0:00 EDT) Thursday 12th July 2018 It was rare that all of the Clan representatives, both major and minor were all gathered in the main room of the parliament. Much more rare was that no one was arguing or trying to outdo the others, instead, they spoke in nervous hush tones. And whilst their nation had yet to be involved none of them, even the most isolationist of them, would dare suggest they do nothing, for an invasion from the Terminus was a threat to the entire world. After a few moments one of the nations chief scientists, despite her young age, K'Sema moved to the center of the gathered representatives and with a swipe bought up a giant hologram of the globe. As King M'Balla raised a hand to silence everyone else she began to speak. "As expected were have detected a vast amount of Terminus energies around Freedom City, but that's not the only place we discovered them. We've passed the information onto the Freedom League but we have a problem closer to home." With a sweep of her hand, the map focused on Dakana itself, with one region in the south-west being illuminates, the Singing Hills. Due to a fluke of geology, the Daka crystals found below the hills had formed in perfectly linked crystal strata. This allowed to natural collect and store energy in their structure which caused them to give out a low-level hum that was disconcerting to both humans and animals alike. It also tended to build up and release energy at random making it difficult to operate electronics in the area. All this made the area more or less uninhabitable, even mostly ignored by those that kept Dakana's borders secure. "We picked up an anomaly on the regions seismographs back on the 10th but paid it no heed, until we got news from America about the invasion, so we used a technology we'd been developing to use the natural frequencies of the area like a sonar and we've formed an image." The hologram changed to that of some sort of massive structure though apparently much of the image was made up of best guess and still it looked menacing in its structure. "Our best guess is that they're using the crystals to generate powers four there other structure on the planet. We're can't even guess at how it operates but it should be easy to shut it down safely." "Why can't we just bombard the place before they become more of threat? If they send people out to capture the sacred mountain or even the Beast itself?" ask one of the representatives "The feedback from that or any large-scale assault could cause a catastrophic feedback loop in the crystal below destroying them and most of the hill. The environmental damage would be catastrophic with that along, not to mention possible harm from terminus infused materials." having said her piece K'Sema stepped back to allow the parliament to discuss a solution to the problem. For the next hour, the parliament debated how to deal with this discovery, whilst still performing their ancient duty to guard the caged beast, with every one of them getting a chance to speak their piece. Finally, it was decided that the Dakana army would prepare itself to defend the sacred mountain, whilst a small band of heroes would go and hopefully destroy the structure. Naturally, the two defenders of Dakana would go on this dangerous mission as well as some assistance from experts from outside the country that could assist them in their own way.
  18. Red Lynx Power Level: 10 (146/150PP) Unspent Power Points: 4 Trade-Offs: +2 Attack / -2 Damage, -1 Defense / +1 Toughness In Brief: Dakanan Prince taking a more 'personal' approach to aiding the less privileged nations. Catchphrase: Theme: The Message Alternate Identity: Kameron 'Kam' Kingdom, Officially Prince Kamau (Secret outside Dakana) Birthplace: Dakana Residence: Dakana Royal Palace, Claremont Academy Base of Operations: Bayview Occupation: Prince & Student Affiliations: Dakana Royal Family, Claremont Academy Family: M'Balla (Father), Asma'u (Mother), M'Zale (Grandfather), Ubasti (Grandmother), Àjàṣorò Tafari (Twin Sister), Baako (Half-Brother) Description: Age: 16 (DoB: 12th April 2002) Apparent Age: 16 Gender: Male Ethnicity: African (Dakanan) Height: 6' Weight: 185 lbs Eyes: Brown Hair: Black Dark skinned and powerfully built Kamau looks every bit the part of Dakanan Royalty. With an athletic frame and well defined musculature he evokes a distinct bearing of controlled power and moves with a sure grace. A strong jaw and broad features continue that trend though his eyes have a thoughtful and considering cast. He attempts to school his features into an implacable mask fo royal propriety but is easily given to an all to boyish grin revealing nor at all regal dimples. He wears his hair shorn in a tight fade on the sides with a crown of tight 'locks coiled above. He usually dresses to suit the occasion though when given to leisure prefers utilitarian workout clothes. In costume his augmented suit is a deep almost black crimson with the interwoven daka crystals flaring to a bright red when struck with force. Vitals are covered with hardened plates of lightweight composites that gives the central torso an articulated appearance but leaves his range of motion free. He's stylized the armored helmet with high peaked 'ears' and a feline shape to the visor to better strike fear in the hearts of 'cowardly and superstitious' villains. History: Kamau is the second born of twins, children of King M'ballas second marriage. As such he has been afforded every benefit growing up the wealth and power of his upbringing grooming him to be a leader and perhaps eventual White Lion. It also instilled in him a deep feeling of responsibility for both his nation and his fellow man throughout the world. Unlike his (As she is quick to point out, elder) twin he has always taken a keener interest in his home country and it's heroes the White Lions and other champions throughout the years. As he grew he began training with the palace security in addition to his tutoring in assorted skills believed necessary for a prince and potential White Lion. Kamau excelled in most tasks put to him with a natural talent and easy confidence in his ancestry. Despite this, or perhaps because of it he has always approached his tasks and lessons with a certain careful and collected care. Both to avoid unintended consequence and to ensure success through application of his skills and abilities. When it came time for the challenge of the White Lion he fully expected he'd emerge the victor. Though his half brother was powerful he was reckless and easy to manipulate. Kamau's own sister had little more than passing interest in the title. While evenly matched in many of the trials when the final challenge came Kamau held back unwilling to commit lest Baako seize the power of the White Lion. In the end this proved his undoing. His sister acted unhesitatingly sizing opportunity when presented and carried the day. For some the failure at the trial may have soured their opinion of the winner or caused a crisis of faith or confidence. But Kamau felt something more akin to relief. He had pursued the position out of a default feeling of responsibility not out of any surity he was the right person. In truth he saw almost immediately the wisdom of the trials construction and that his sister was best suited for it took much more than strength of body or mind to be hte White Lion, or in this case the White Lioness. Kamau joins his sister at Claremont, seeing attendance at the Freedom school as an opportunity to not only learn from the americans but help them to clean up their 'crime ridden' streets and corrupt institutions. Personality & Motivation: Kamau affects a friendly and gregarious persona for public events a skill he has developed over the course of many state events from childhood on. In more private settings he's more withdrawn with a more naturally dry wit and quiet confidence until an area of particular interest draws out enthusiastic, and at times exhaustive, discussion of the topic at hand. As Red Lynx Kamau takes on the collected personality of the dark avenger his voice a low growl and a carefully curated body language to evoke fear in criminals and unsettled gratitude in innocents and law enforcement alike. Publically Prince Kamau is a strong proponent of his fathers policies of inclusion and action outside Dakanas borders. The nation has power and wealth and the responsibility to use them for the betterment of the world as a whole. This is not to say he is ignorant of the geopolitics his nations long isolation and how it effects modern attempts at involvement. In part this is why he was eager to leave Dakanas borders. He disagrees with the Isolationist old guard and imperial ambitions of some of the Red Hyena but also feels more must be done on the ground not only through economics and soft power but by citizens of good intention doing what is in their power to bend the other nations toward greater equity. He takes this duty seriously as Red Lynx to strike out against injustice in his adopted home of Freedom where despite the benefits afforded the citizens of the US many still find themselves victims of corruption or criminal enterprise turning ht tools of freedom to personal gain. Powers & Tactics: Lynx fights with a tactical efficiency born of his training with the Dakanan security forces. He approaches a potential conflict with tight focus on ending it quickly and with minimal collateral damage using the environment and keen tracking of his environments to give himself the advantage. Preferring to strike from unexpected directions he avoids direct confrontation until the time of his choosing whenever possible then attacks with single minded determination to eliminate the threat as quickly as possible. Utilizing his superior athletic abilities and training he's willing to stand toe to toe with an enemy to buy time if that is what is required or distract and draw an enemy to a battleground of his choosing denying the enemy the ability to use innocents or property damage against him. Power Descriptions: Beyond his physical training and conditioning Red Lynx utilizes advanced technology from Dakana for his efforts fighting crime abroad. In addition to his armored suit he uses a pair of Marungu. The throwing clubs are similar to those utilized by many Dakanan security forces and made of advanced alloys lightweight and strong, well balanced for throwing or striking. Complications: The Hero Formerly Known as Prince: Kamau is a foreign Royal operating as a secret vigilante on U.S. soil. International incidents are not out of the question. OLDER Sister: His elder twin is the White Lioness, and in his school, here enemies will be his enemies as well as the reverse. The World is a Mess and I Just Need to ... Rule it: Kamau see's the world outside of Dakana as less civilized and a little backwards. This can get him in trouble when he acts unilaterally for the good of "the people" regardless of authority. Keep it in the Family: Kamau's half brother Baako, as well as Ubasti sometimes put their politics into action, with fists. Kamau and his sister are likely targets.
