Chris has a compact and lithe gymnasts build of middling height.  A dimpled smile and certain practiced intensity has earned him larger tips on more than one occasion and he's not above taking full advantage of that.  His hair is neatly coiffed in  a neat fade with the top just long enough to cover an eye when allowed though usually is swept back and cleanly styled into a subtle wave with blonde highlights to it's natural deep mahogany tones.  Deep chestnut eyes sit beneath a delicate brow, clean shaven with fine cheekbones Chris' golden caramel skin tone is often augmented with a light touch of make up to best smooth his complexion and highlight his features.  He cuts a handsome figure and is well aware of it setting off his civilian looks with well fitted dress shirts or skin tight tees as the situation demands paired with fashionable jeans or shorts depending on the locale.

 

His costume consists of a fitted iridescent silver/white full coverage bodysuit with integral boots blending seamlessly into his calves.  A criss crossing ribbon in red runs over the bodysuit with a matching short laced vest over his chest.  The suit comes up to the bottom of his jaw but leaves his head uncovered with a matching thin lensed domino mask covering his eyes.  The overall image is akin to a cirque du soleil take on superhero design. 

 

History:  Chris was born to a  single mother.  The youngest daughter of a conservative and upwardly mobile family in Tampico on the gulf coast.  He's never met them and has no intention to.  He and his mother were removed to an illicit convent hidden in the hills of the eastern Sierra Madre.   Despite the formal organizations having been outlawed as part of reforms separating church and state in the twenties some few underground orders remained serving the devout.  His family had connections to one such and thus a place to send their 'sinful' daughter and her bastard.

 

He was raised in equal parts by his mother as the sisters of the hidden order, it was not an unpleasant childhood but neither was it particularly warm and loving.  His mother never took her vows, a point of contention with the abbess, and did her best to take an active role in her sons life as the orders strictures allowed.  He was well educated in matters both civil and religious and given all he needed to grow into a healthy young man.  Shortly after his twelfth birthday while trying to come to terms with his budding sexuality in the relative isolation of the convent he was found by one of his tutors while experimenting with his mother's carefully hoarded make up.  the sisters response was swift and harsh.  They attempted to switch the deviancy from him to his mother's grave protests.  

 

His mother fled with him that night making for the coast knowing they'd expect her to strike north for the United States.  In hindsight Chris realized she must have long been prepared for when they would have to flee though he still has no idea why.  Unknown to him and only barely understood by his mother, the order and his family along with others hidden throughout the church believed her family to be a repository of the bloodline of the messiah.  Thus her 'sinful' pregnancy and worse her sons 'deviancy' was a dire threat to their carefully curated program to keep the line alive and pure.   Once they made it to the coastal communities his mother managed to arrange transport across the gulf eventually landing in Vibora Bay and requesting asylum.  It was not a swift process but they managed to navigate the bureaucracy and gain entry and eventually citizenship.  While they waited his mother worked many jobs to support them, eventually managing to become a supervisor of hospitality at a nearby beach resort. 

 

Chris attended public school and made middling grades.  Life for a queer immigrant on the panhandle led him into more than a few fights in his early days, his mother fearing for their asylum claims was firm in him following a path of peace.  Not acquiescence but peace.  Eventually it sunk in and Chris is now effectively a pacifist violence begets violence as his mother would say.  Teach, show them, be the better man.  Most days he likes to think he succeeds.  It likely helps that modern Vibora Bay is more welcoming than many places to his existence. 

 

Upon graduation Chris knew there was no money for college and knew even more so his struggles in scholarship would not get him far.  Like many of his generation he bounces from job to job' living with his mother and helping with the bills.  His dream is to make it big as a DJ though he recognizes even local fame is unlikely.  In the meantime he works waiting tables or bartending where his looks and charming demeanor cna earn him spending money and taking what DJ gigs he can supplementing with driving for UBER or Lyft and delivering for one gig economy app or another.

 

Things changed last fall.  He was out with friends at a local club that catered to the younger LGBT latino community.  Chris had just arrived and was lingering just inside the club looking for where his friends might be when there was some kind of altercation in front.  There were slurs shouted, threats, then a sharp crack of a gunshot outside, screams barely audible over the thumbing beat of the nights mix.  The gunman stepped in, the few others near enough to see started to scatter, Chris stared at the man almost in confusion as the barrel began to rise.  His memory is foggy of what happened next.  He demanded the man drop the gun, there was an almost blinding light from behind him, the rifle fell to the floor and the gunman met Chris' eyes his gaze full of so much hate then sorrow as he fell to his knees sobbing and begging forgiveness.  Chris ran.  

 

That was when the Voice started, his glorious purpose, his destiny, his fate.  And Chris couldn't run from the Voice.  His mother thought his moodiness was shock from the near shooting, or maybe drugs.  She told him to tell her when he was ready.  He doesn't know if he ever will be.  But he does know he stopped something terrible that day, and times since.  He of course has a choice, everyone does, but not helping is hardly any choice at all.  So he swore a designer he knew to secrecy and got a disguise, a costume, and now he tries to make the world a little less frightening.

 

Personality & Motivation:  Chris is young and a little scared.  He still is trying to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up and he has a voice in his head telling him he about duty, destiny, and hinting at dark futures he may have to stop.  As he puts it, "It's, Alot."  The worst of it is that Chris won't walk away.  He knows he can help, and that if he doesn't it won't get done or worse fall to another to help, possibly at greater cost.  He's not certain if he's losing his mind, and not sure if fixing that would take his powers.  He's not sure if he might want that.  So he lives his life full out with a certain heedless abandon where tomorrow is not promised and does what he can to make the world a better place in the meantime.  He's given to private crises, but outwardly is gregarious, flirty, and carefree.  

 

Powers & Tactics:  Still ingrained in his methods is his mothers teaching of how many problems are solved by violence (zero).  Chris is at the core a pacifist.  And his powers lend themselves to this.  He speaks with divine mandate and the world obeys his commands.  He can disable, disarm, and command weaker minds and overwhelm even strong ones.  He usually keeps his commands simple and short, 'Stop!', 'Sleep!', 'Freeze!' etc. will stop many in their tracks at least long enough for them to be restrained.  More complex commands can be used in less strenuous circumstance of course and he has been known to march those bound to the Voice into a police station to turn themselves in.  A situation the police accept with dubious care, where mind controlling supers fall on the spectrum of fourth, or fifth amendment rights is sufficiently unclear to make such tactics questionable.    When facing foes not affected by the Voice directly he'll concentrate on defending innocents and doing what he can to aid or bolster allies. 

 

Power Descriptions: Much of Chris' powers are internal, the advice and warnings of the Voice can reveal much when it's in a talkative mood and will warn him of dangers.  As well his existence is to put it tritely, blessed, fate bends to the will of the Divine and the Divine wishes him intact.  His active powers consist mostly of the Voice of the Divine overwhelming the weak minded.  His commands must be obeyed when he puts the power of the Voice behind them.   Beyond the ethereal presence of the Voice and it's direct effects it is difficult to notice, people simply obey his command.  When used with subtlety it can go unnoticed entirely while shouting short commands as in most fights are a more obvious use mostly due to the immediate reactions.  Chris is also able to peer into the psyche of an enemy and force upon them visions of how their actions harm others or similar regrets of ill lived lives.  Such revelation can be overwhelming.  Lastly he can perform miracles, manna from heaven, heal the sick, mend the broken, even if it is so willed raise the recently fallen.  Performing such miracles even on a small scale is not subtle invoking a divine glow at the very least and manifesting a blinding halo, or even the chorus celestial upon grander use.

 

Complications:
The Voice: There is a Voice, God, Angel, or madness Chris doesn't examine too closely.  It speaks of his duty and the needs of the world as well as some future fate.  The Voice may demand action or inaction of Chris listening to it may earn HP, the voice may also be distraction either with demands or overwhelming him at key moments earning Chris HP for such setbacks.

Pacifism:  Though he's willing to use his powers to stop people he draws a line at harm.  When the situation calls for direct violence and his refusal limits his options chris will earn HP.

The Covenant:  The self styled Covenant of the Blood believes that it has a sacred duty to guide and preserve the lineage of Christ and that Chris is a scion of this august line.  Attracting their attention could become problematic in many ways. 

Pure of Heart:  Those who have committed no wrongs upon others may be immune to the visions he conjures with Empathic Visions earning him HP.

All right, that's cleared up! I just wanted to add that I commend your sensitive use of the setting's existing cosmology/assumptions here.

I would imagine his deflect is more inline with Zoolander, given the image.

That said, I cannot see any mechanical or fluff concerns that are not address in sheet.

 

However his name is a concern, unless I am wrong, as it should be Noun [adjective] in Spanish.  It's been awhile since high school.

 

Upon personal review, just going to go with it,  given it's source.

 

Approved.
