James is a slim teenager with long black hair that is usually tied into a ponytail. He is rather average looking, neither a pretty boy or ugly, though his eyes have an almost unnatural teal color. James generally dresses in red, white and/or blue clothing. 

 

The Bird of Prey is fused to James' spine. It appears as a silvery-white colored metallic plate in the vague shape of a stylized eagle. While it is visible if James goes topless, it can easily be hidden under his clothes and do not affect metal detectors or the like.

 

The Freedom Eagle armor appears from the Bird of Prey, almost instantly growing to cover James' body. True to his namesake, the armor is stylized as highly patriotic, cast in red, blue, white and gold. While the armor is morphic, changing appearance to match James' current needs and weapons, the base suit is an almost silvery white, with a thick blue line running from his chest and down his stomach and to his inner thighs. The blue line is bordered by smaller red lines. A small white and gold buckle in a shape of a stylized upside down A breaks the blue line at the waist. He wears heavy golden boots with a red center that stretch from his knees to his ankles. The armor is blue from the elbow to the fingers, with the fingers retaining the silvery white. The armor's shoulders and neck is the same blue with red trim as the line on the chest. James' head is covered by a dark blue cowl with a golden face plate that shows glowing teal eyes and a mouth, reacting and changing with his expressions. The armor's chest plate is an intricate design, with dark red trim running over James' shoulders with golden armor underneath. The lower plate is in a triangle shape, with a round shape on James' left chest. On his right, the armor is blue with a succession of silvery white stars spread over his shoulder to his back. On the back, the armor connects to the visible Bird of Prey. When James activates the wings, they stretch out from the Bird of Prey, a silver white frame with golden wings. Due to

HISTORY

 

The future.

 

They call it Earth-∞.

 

To James Gabriel Guthrie, it was home. Impossibly advanced by our standards, space travel is common place, humanity have stretched across the stars, becoming a dominant super power, an empire to rival the Lor and the other mighty empires of their day. Protected by the Freedom Legion and their various offshoots, the futuristic descendants of today's heroes keep the universe safe from danger!

 

James is the latest in a long line of Freedom Eagle, the Freedom Eagle ∞. The Bird of Prey, once the armor worn by the original Freedom Eagle, was continuously upgraded by his successors, until it finally achieved sentience. Now, it exists in the form of a small bird shaped amulet, which bonds with its chosen host to empower them as Freedom Eagle.

 

As a new member of the Freedom Legion Y, James has already served with distinction, battling such menaces as the ÜberBeings, the Superior Dynasty and the Alien-Gator Swarm. During his latest battle against a member of the Alien-Gator Swarm, James attempted to stop them from breaching the defenses of the Chrono-Dimensional Institute. Something went wrong during the battle, and James and the Alien-Gator were thrown through time and space, emerging in the sky above Freedom City in the year 2021, with several members of the Claremont Academy ending up involved in the battle.

 

As a super powered youngster from a future, where else would James go but the Claremont Academy to learn about this world that might just be his past?

 

 

PERSONALITY & MOTIVATION

Despite what one would expect from a future super hero that's fought several grand foes before being thrown into the past, James has severe confidence issues. He isn't sure he got what it takes to live up to the Freedom Eagle legacy, he is nervous and second guesses himself, and he is really not that great in a fight on his own. Still, he tries, and while he might not be the first to throw himself into a fight and might even seem like he is somewhat cowardly at times, he is at least a cowardly lion, ultimately willing to stand up for what's right. James seems rather unsure of the current time and how unfamiliar it is to his own world.

 

The Bird of Prey is very unlike James. It is pragmatic and violent, relishing in battles and driving James to participate, whether he wants to or not. There's no kill like overkill to the Bird of Prey, and it will often deploy increasingly powerful weapons and threats against its foes. Despite the Bird of Prey often claiming it could easily find a new host, it is protective of James, doing its best to keep him from being hurt. Often by destroying its foes with overwhelming power.

 

James' relationship with the Bird of Prey is difficult. On one hand, the alien artifact is incredibly possessive of James, refering to him as its host, and it has been known to take over James' body in the heat of battle, much to to his horror. On the other hand, James knows that the Bird of Prey protects him and he feels a strange kinship with the alien A.I.

 

 

POWERS & TACTICS

Flight and firepower are the name of the game. While not exclusively so, James tends to stay airborne and mobile during fights, making himself a moving target and either moving in for quick hit and run strikes or staying away from his targets. 

 

 

POWER DESCRIPTIONS

All of James' powers as the Freedom Eagle comes from the mysterious alien artifact that refers to itself as the Bird of Prey. The Bird of Prey is a silvery-white metallic plate in the shape of a stylized eagle that is fused to James' spine at the top of his shoulders. The Bird of Prey is a sentient alien A.I. that is capable of communicating with James or even taking control of his body. The Bird of Prey is powered by seemingly limitless cosmic energy contained within its core. The Bird of Prey contain vast knowledge in several fields, which it some times decides to share with James. The Bird of Prey keeps James' thoughts secret from all prying eyes and minds. It is the only one that should have access to his thoughts.

 

The Bird of Prey can cover its host in a red, white, blue and gold armor, able to change the actual design on the fly, morphing it into different weapons or shapes. It allows the host to fly through a mix of gravity manipulation, jet propulsion and giant golden wings. The wings are strong enough to be used to slash at foes, with cosmic energies surging through them to reduce a target's defenses, or be used to defend against attacks. 

 

The suit contains a number of communication systems, including radio and directly linking with computers.

 

The armor is loaded with a veritable arsenal of weapons. Enhanced musculature strenghens the hosts body, gravimetric manipulation allows the host to simulate telekinetic abilities or create a constraining sphere of localized gravity to keep a target trapped. Aside from that, the suit contains a wide variety of both potentially lethal and non-lethal weapons, such as electric shocks, blasts of cosmic energies, gravity blasts, missiles, grenades and much more.

 

The suit is able to morph between different shapes and grow different features and technologies to adjust to the current situation.

 

 

COMPLICATIONS

Alien Weapon: While from the future, the Bird of Prey seem to have existed for a long time, and even in the present, James seem to be attracting everything from bad attitude from aliens to alien bounty hunters looking to score a high grade weapon for themselves.

A GM can award Freedom Eagle a Hero Point if aliens or others recognize the Bird of Prey, making interactions more difficult due to their distrust of the weapon, or making situations turn hostile as they try to take it from James.

 

Assuming Direct Control: The Bird of Prey can assume full control of James' body. While James can resist, it is generally a losing battle, and the much more violent Bird of Prety will eventually take control, with a tendency to escalate any conflict.

A GM can award Freedom Eagle a Hero Point by having the Bird of Prey take over. This can either lead to James being dazed for a round as he struggles against the Bird of Prey's control, or for the Bird of Prey to somehow, often violently, escalating a situation.

 

Don't Lose Your Nerve: James' is really not sure about being the newest Freedom Eagle of Earth-∞, not helped at all by being thrown into the past. He is nervous and prone to making mistakes.

A GM can, if the situation calls for it, make James second guess himself, freeze up or otherwise hinder events by his reluctance to fight, in turn awarding him a Hero Point.

 

Foes of Freedom: The first Freedom Eagle might have hung up his wings a long time ago, but his legacy still lives on. Any particularly long-lived or continued enemies of the first Freedom Eagle or the Liberty League might seek out the new Freedom Eagle as an ersatz enemy, to take revenge by proxy. Aside from that, James' arrival in 2021 brought along a future Alien-Gator that seem to have a personal vendetta against James.

A GM can award Freedom Eagle a Hero Point by having enemies of the Freedom Eagle legacy or any of James' new enemies, like the future Alien-Gator, arrive to complicate a situation.

 

Overkill: The Bird of Prey tends to be rather fond of overkill. Using weapons meant to kill while James would rather knock out or, at most, bruise. Some times it will switch out weapons from the ones that James wanted to use, forcing him force his shot in a different direction at the last minute, turning a hit into a miss.

A GM can award Freedom Eagle a Hero Point by making the Bird of Prey switch to lethal weapons at the last minute, forcing Freedom Eagle to miss his attack or deal lethal damage. 

 

President Eagle: As of early 2021, the American president is Michael O'Connor, Jr., secretly the son of the original Freedom Eagle. It is only a matter of time until he learns about the new Freedom Eagle, and only time will tell how he reacts, if at all. 

As President O'Connor is unlikely to interfere directly with the Freedom Eagle during threads, this complication exists more as a potential plot seed.

LAST CHANCE

Spoiler

Freedom Eagle's entire backstory is a lie.

He is not from the future.

His name is Alexander Lincoln Freeman, a teenager born April 4th 2005 in Nevada, where he grew up. He saw a meteor crash towards the Earth in late 2020 and went to find it, finding the Bird of Prey that immediately bonded to him.

Within a few weeks of his first appearance as a winged hero, Alexander was recruited by the government sponsored Patriot Act group who dubbed him the new Freedom Eagle, joining several other American legacy would-be heroes of varying moral standing.

In early 2021 Alexander was chosen to infiltrate Claremont Academy with his partner to look for potential recruits for Patriot Act, as well as potential threats to the American public. The future backstory was chosen to prey on Claremont's willingness to take in chronally and dimensionally displaced refugees.

Everything about the Bird of Prey, aside from being from the future, is the truth, however, and Alexander knows very little about the alien artifact bonded to him.

The built-in computer was noted as costing DP, rather than PP; I'm not going to make you go another round of review for a single typo, though, so I've taken the liberty of fixing it myself.
