Project HERO is a small, freakishly pale guy, and it isn't just his skin that's pale, it's his everything. His newly dyed hair is pale blond, his eyes are a greyish brown. He looks artificial, which he very well might be, especially if you look close enough to see his abnormalities. Small lights sometimes run across his skin, there are small, thick, mechanical fibers hidden alongside his normal strands of hair. Even his eyes have artificial light coming out of them at all times. Nevertheless, he's clearly human.


Thanks to these physical abnormalities, Project HERO wears thick, long pieces of clothes in his civilian identity, Walby, to hide the abnormalities. This means many types of clothing is fair game, however, his favorite outfits so far appears to be a group of brightly coloured sweaters, rather thick jeans, and beanies, as he'll appears in this type of clothing every few days, at least.


Project HERO's costume is simple, but eye-catching. He wears all white, a white sleeveless shirt, a pair of white shorts, and even a pair of shined, tall, white boots. The only thing that breaks this color scheme is the tools and weapons attached to his belt, consisting of a strange, silver gun, a group of round, metal objects and an item that remarkably resembles a stun gun.



Project HERO was born to be a prototype experiment for all of humanity. Or something like that. He never quite got the full story, no scientists would have been stupid enough to discuss his full history in front of him, but what he could get was enough to fill in any crucial blanks. From what he heard, his world was in a dimension called Earth-40, a world far, far ahead of other dimensions technology wise. The only things they didn't have? Superpowers, which apparently was found out while exploring with newly made trasdimensional travel. Project HERO assume an organization decided they wanted their own variety of superpowers to further make their world more advanced, legally or not. And so, Earth-40's own version of The Fellowship made their first prototype, Project HERO.


The details get a little fuzzy when he first actually came into the picture. He knows the scientists got him from somewhere, but whether they took him from what would have been his family, or grew him in a test tube, or even are his parents he'll never figure out. What he does know is, the day he was the equivalent of a few days old, nanobots were injected into his body, to give what ability they had to him while making it the most "natural" powers the scientist could create.


And, surprisingly, the experiment didn't go horribly wrong... somehow. No, he really did receive the nanobots ability to teleport, even if the power only showed itself at around toddler age. And that was for the best, Project HERO has no idea what they would have done to him if he was still a baby, but it definitely still wasn't fun when his powers began being tested. He would be forced to use his teleporting ability over and over to various devices, places and machines from the day he had no idea what he was doing, to when it became boring monotony. Honestly, he decided to escape when he saw the scientists and their clipboards one day and, quite frankly, hated the sight. But turns out, the scientists were smarter than that. He tried to teleport straight out of the building... And found himself crashing against a wall that he simply could not pass through. They brought in technology to "keep him in line" from that day forward.


But he was still a nuisance. That didn't change. Now that he realized he could teleport anywhere in the building, that's exactly what Project HERO would do. And, turns out, there was way, way more stuff in that facility than he thought. Books, computers, things that could help him learn. And hey, if he could ruin the research of the scientists by not doing all their tests properly, than that's what he'd do! So he first figured out how to read. Then he figured out what a name was. And then proceeded to give himself a name, Walby, he was pretty sure it was nonsense, but he liked it. He then began learning about the world itself. He always got taken away from what he was reading before he finished, but he could fill in blanks with whatever he wanted.


Soon however, all that stuff in his head, real or not, began making him wish for escape again. Especially when he found out what a hero was while learning about his powers. Heroes just seemed so unreal, and that just made him realize how unreal the world, people, the other dimensions and so many other stuff he read about looked to him. He needed to see all that! So he went to escape again, his strategy didn't change, but he knew the facility like the back of his hand, or so he thought.


His teleportation escape brought him into all sorts of rooms to try and avoid the scientists or camaras. Rooms where he saw other "experiments" actually people like him, and none doing all that great, physically, and probably mentally. So no wonder he was the go to experiment to test and study, he was the only experiment that actually succeeded. And well, that made him want to escape even more, if he was a success.


His luck almost ran out after an hour of trying to find a way out. He got shot by one of the scientists' machinery, the weapons meant to keep him in line. However, he seemed to keep his teleporting ability out of sheer desperation, much to his and the scientist's shock, even if it hurt to teleport. So he did exactly that and more, teleporting and snatching away all the scientist's weapons, an odd gun, a belt with metal spheres and the old electricity holder he have seen since he was a kid. The scientists were just as useless as he thought without them.


With these weapons helping him feel more confident, Project HERO ventured into one of tghe most monitored rooms, filled with some amazing, unknown machines. But none seemed to be a way out and, out of options and no longer wanting to teleport anymore as it hurt too much, Project HERO began messing with every single one of the machines. He found the transdimensional travel machine just as the scientists tracked him down.


At first, Project HERO didn't know he was on Earth Prime. He knew he was outside, but that's about it. So when he was first found, well, both he and other people were very confused. Eventually, after a few hours, it was figured out he was from a previously unknown dimension, and only knew the world from computers and books. It was decided it would be best to place him in the Cline Building, with other transdimensional refugees. However, he was still a bit of a bother, but was now a staple of the city, both as Walby Project and, later, Project HERO, which have not been traced back to him just yet thankfully. Still, Project HERO first appeared a few days after Walby Project arrived and saw his first superhero literally throw a villain straight out the city, much to his extreme delight. The next day Project HERO first showed up, and proceeded to do everything he would become known for, bragging, attention grabbing, and teleporting. But he still did save people in that first fight, as a couple can testify, he teleported them out if the way of an attack when he haven't been paying them any attention at first. So he have now been called an annoying hero, a slightly idiotic hero, but no one can deny he is a hero, even if he doesn't always show it properly.


Personality & Motivation:

Project HERO is very confident, maybe too confident. He believes he knows much more than he does and, since he learned about much of the world through fiction or biased bits of internet, his view of the world if very skewed and, quite frankly, innocent, like a child's. And he thinks every single wrong idea he got is correct, making him bull-headed and a bit of a know it all. Part of this behaviour appears to be because he was isolated for much of his life, in fact, his annoying tendencies to butt into things or be rude and such seems to be attempts to get attention, something he is rather desperate for. And that's not even mentioning his memory is actually rather amazing, and, surprisingly, he can be rather competent with electronics. Being ignored or reminded of how he was isolated are practically the only way to cause him to lose his sunny, if obnoxious, personality. Honestly, being ignored or being isolated seem to scare Project HERO very much, alongside a few specific things, like electricity or labs, which is even more surprising due to his extreme bravery and gung-ho attitude with anything else.


Project HERO considers anyone even just a little kind to him a friend. In fact, it's hard to get him to ever hate a person. He won't even really hurt a person intentionally, physically or emotionally. Unintentionally, yes, but if told what he have done, he'll attempt never to do so again. He's a real people's person, and is actually proud of that fact, meaning he'll likely never lose this trait of his.


However, all these facets of his personality make him love to be a hero. But, while he loves the attention, fame, and love he gets, his real reason, that even he sometimes denies, is his own love of people. People are beings he never got to truly be around, and they are, for the most part, just as great as he imagined and learned. Even most of the villains, they're pretty cool, the only reason he fights them is the fame and the fact they're messing with other people. He'll just make sure he doesn't hurt them too bad. All these people, good and bad, is something amazing to Project HERO, and he's not about to lose them when he just found them.


Powers & Tactics:

Project HERO nanobots have only one ability, teleportation. And due to the fact that Project HERO is irreversibly connected to those nanobots nowadays, he teleport alongside them, with no problems unless the nanobots were somehow compromised. Items and people that are held or carried in any form by Project HERO will also teleport, he himself assumes this is because the nanobots temporary assume the item and person is a part of him. The teleportation range is technically unlimited, but further distances put a strain on Project HERO and his nanobots, causing nausea, disorientation, and is often not worth the trouble, causing him to usually stick to small distances. Unfortunately, despite his ability's sheer value as a supporting power, Project HERO will typically attempt to be a front lines attacker, but if he sees another hero or person who needs assistance, or is plainly told to assist other heroes, he will become support, moving others and items quickly across whatever "battlefields" he is currently in.


Project HERO also has an array of equipment, as teleportation is his only legitimate power, and he needed some ways to fight and defend himself. He has three main weapons and tools, three pieces of equipment he can use easily. The main piece is a silver gun, clearly from another dimension. It's main function is a ranged energy attack that can stun, hurt, and even kill. However, it is often set on stun, due to Project HERO's discomfort over harming a person. His other two pieces of equipment are mostly just in case he is unable to use the silver gun, a few round, metal objects, and something that resembles a stun gun. The round, metal objects can be thrown as a weapon and will always return to their owner, even returning to their place on Project HERO's belt. The last piece is more of a last resort than anything else. It releases a powerful electric shock if stabbed into someone, but this shock cannot be controlled, and requires Project HERO to be nearly right next to his opponent.


Power Descriptions:

Project HERO's teleportation is often signaled by a flash of light on his skin and even hair, it appears to be his nanobots activating, and this will happen any time he teleported, no exception.


Project HERO's weapons are clearly futuristic in appearance and function. The gun will always shoot a white shot of energy, no exceptions. The round, metal objects don't really change when thrown at somebody, instead, they just float back to the user afterwards, with a slight mechanical, clicking sound. The last weapon, the one that resembles a stun gun, has electricity visibly emerge from the tip whenever used, but nothing else.


Short Circuit:   Project HERO's body is dependent on the nanobots in him due to having them all his life. These nanobots are prototypes, and, as it turns out, can be affected by electricity, black-outs, and extreme blasts of energy. If this happens, the nanobots are forced to reboot, making his powers harmful to himself his powers until then.

Disarm: Project HERO cannot fight without his belt of weapons or tools. Like, at all. Taking the belt or even just a few of the weapons or tools can render him nearly defenseless until he retrieves everything.


Nanobots Tracker: Project HERO's nanobots all have tracking devices in them. This means that the organization that kept him as an experiment can track him, and they want their years long experiment back. And that's not even mentioning if anybody else figures out how to track him with his nanobots' tracking devices.


Know-Nothing-at-All: Project HERO doesn't actually know how the world works. Not one bit. This doesn't stop him from assuming he knows everything, as he had read many books and entries online. This not only can make him a little aggravating, but can cause problems related to social graces, laws, common sense, and even just simple education.


Prototype Strain: Project HERO and his nanobots are prototypes, meaning they sometimes cannot take the strain of their own ability. If Project HERO teleports to a distance further than a hundred feet all at once, it'll put strain on his nanobots, and strain on him, causing nausea, slower reflexes and disorientation.


Lab Rat's Fears: Anything that reminds Project HERO of his days as an experiment seem to scare him greatly now that he is outside. Things such as electricity, labs and isolation in particular are at the top of the list, giving him a possibility of not wanting to go near that specific fear, or freaking out.
