Apparent Age: 16

Gender: Male
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 175 lbs.
Eyes: Grey
Hair: Black

 

 

 

Description: Black hair, cut short and brushed back except for a few bangs that won't cooperate. Leon keeps himself in shape, and trains to keep his agility.

 

He likes to dress casually in his free time, anime/cartoon themed t-shirts and jeans usually.

 

His ‘costume’ use to typically consists of a black short sleeved shirt with red trim, blue jeans and sneakers. He has though agreed to a change of colors to reflect the school’s colors. This is easy for him since his ‘costume’ is usually made of paper made to look and act like regular clothing. This is accompanied by a slim, black backpack with a few various books in it at any time, along with some personal items. Several small black pockets on straps around arms (1 on each), thighs (2 on each) and 2 each hip of his belt. Each pocket is large enough to hold a deck of index cards. Hanging on back of the belt is a case that holds 2 large rolls of paper about the width of receipt tape and hundreds of yards long.

 

 

 

History:
Born in Seattle to a teen mother, she moved to Freedom City when he was still young with her then boyfriend. When Leon began to show signs of not being ‘normal’ the man abandoned them. His mother felt she could not take care of a ‘special’ child and surrendered him to the foster system without telling them of his ‘nature’. Shortly there after she returned to family in Seattle. Leon has not had any contact with her since.

 

In the system since age 8, Leon was moved from home to home several times, unable to settle, acting up, and trying to run away. At first, he blamed his powers for his mother abandoning him. When he was 11 he landed in the same foster house as two other children hiding their powers. With their help he accepted his powers and embraced them. The three agreed that they could only rely on each other and swore to always be there for the each other.

 

Believing the system was a failure and that no one else could or would see them as more then either a burden or a paycheck, the three ran away together and turned to small crimes to do what they thought they needed to survive.

 

 

 

Personality & Motivation:

Leon has always been a bit of a show off. He was also the most ‘energetic’ of his trio of foster siblings. Not bad kids by nature, they simply felt let down and abandon by an over taxed system. Although feeling they had to do what they had to, to survive, none of them ever wanted to hurt anyone. 

 Leon would never give up his siblings, and would never turn his back on them. He isn’t likely to trust anyone quickly, and even if he does, he would just be waiting for the other shoe to drop.

If asked why he saved the officer he just shrugs and dismisses it as an act of stupidity on his part, not willing to admit he couldn’t stand to see someone get hurt.

 

Power Descriptions:

Leon can control and manipulate paper, altering its shape and strength at his will. He can make paper stronger than metal and sharper than any normal blade. He can make it solid enough to resist liquids and gas. He can even have it resist heat and fire to a point. It can easily protect from an explosion with little harm to the paper, but repeated or continued exposure could eat away at the paper eventually.

 

Shaping it, he can create nearly anything from simple weapons and gear to clothing and simple golems. Many pieces of smaller papers can be melded into a single, seamless construction and when done with them the constructs fall apart into their original pieces, or what’s left of them.

 

Aside from his power over paper, or perhaps more because of it, Leon has taught himself how to use simple weapons. These would cover most blades, clubs/maces, spears/staves, bows and arrows, and throwing objects. All things he can easily create with paper. Skill wise, Leon is quick and agile from practicing often. He is not overly strong, equal to anyone his size that works out every so often. He has also developed a firm sense of balance. 

 

 

Complications:

And I don’t give a damn about my bad reputation: Reputation: Leon and his foster siblings have records with the juvenile courts, and he doesn’t care if others know. Being predisposed to thinking that, in the end, everyone is looking out for themselves.

 

It’s just a flesh wound: Disability: Leon lost his left arm not long ago during a robbery attempt. During the robbery Leon and a rookie officer were caught in a building collapse, he protected the officer, but his arm was crushed mid bicep. Leon uses his powers to create and maintain a paper arm that looks real enough.

Just noticed the ‘change log post’ bit.

 

March 26 - changed age from 17 to 16 (meant to do that before posting, but it slipped by me)

March 27 - fixed skills for proper total bonuses, adjusted PP for Paper Weapons; removed Contacts from Feats; added Extra: Area to Force Field

March 28 - Removed Area and Selective from Force Field and added Impervious

Double-check the bonuses on skills; you're short-changing yourself on Acrobatics, Sleight of Hand, and Stealth.

 

The paper weapons setting in the array is 17PP, by my count, but please do correct me if I'm misplaced some math.

 

Per the notes in the character sheet template, all PP must be spent at character creation; Paper currently has 2pp to spend on something fun.

The Mighty on that paper weapon won't do you any good - with a +0 strength bonus, it won't add anything. Since a +0 won't break anything either, and the slot's already under-budget, I'm fine with leaving it as well.

 

APPROVED!

You know...I'm not okay with any kind of Area on Force Field. Maybe for civilians, but even then easily covered by Create Object. It's just too easy to help your fellow heroes break caps, and that's a no-no. Please do something else with those points.
