Freedom Eagle II - PL 10 - Congyoglas

Recommended Posts

Players Name: Congyoglas

Power Level: 11 (153 PPs)

Unspent PPs: 3

Characters Name: Freedom Eagle II

Alternate Identity: Richard O'Connor (secret)

Height: 6'0"

Weight: 180 pds

Hair: Red

Eyes: Blue

Description: Outside of his costume, Richard O'Connor is a handsome, muscular man in his late twenties. He bears a certain resemblance to his famous father, and an even more striking resemblance to his grandfather, Mike Sr. Inside the costume of the Freedom Eagle, Richard O'Connor is an imposing figure in avian armor, decked out in the patriotic costume that his grandfather made so famous in the Golden Age.

History:

Richard O'Connor grew up on stories. Growing up in the darkness of the Iron Age, his father and grandfather told him stories of the wonders of the past, the glories of Freedom City in its heyday and of the heroes who'd once kept its streets and skies safe from bad men. It was no secret in the family that his grandfather, Mike Sr, had been the first Freedom Eagle in the Golden Age, and Richard loved those stories of virtue and triumph over evil more than any other. He was fourteen when his father came to power as Mayor of Freedom City, and sat with his mother and sisters that day as a bright and shining new age dawned for Freedom City. The young man had never been happier.

Until,. that is, the Terminus Invasion. Badly wounded by a piece of falling debris, Richard spent much of the early 1990s in and out of physical therapy. He went from a spoiled, if likeable, boy to a driven young man, determined to live up to his family's legacy and make his father and grandfather proud. He worked his way through high school, playing sports, learning karate, and doing well in his classes, and was acknowledged by all as a credit to the family name. He followed in his grandfather's footsteps and became an engineer, graduating from Hanover in 2001. His father used family connections to help him get a steady job as a consulting engineer for the city, and Richard settled into a respectable, middle-class lifestyle.

But after only a few months, the peace and quiet of his life began to gnaw at Richard. He heard the whispers of his coworkers that he'd gotten his job because of his father's connections, and he wasn't sure they weren't right. He had ambitions that his steady job couldn't hold, and those ambitions wore golden wings and an eagle's breastplate. His father was deeply uneasy at the idea of reviving the family's legacy, acutely conscious of the sacrifices and dangers _his_ father had made, back in a simpler time of clearer rights and wrongs. How much more dangerous would it be to be a hero in the Modern Age? He refused.

So Richard stole the Freedom Eagle suit. Not the one that his grandfather kept in the back of the house "for emergencies", but a backup flight harness that no one would notice missing. Richard worked feverishly for hours to improve his grandfather's design. Cracking the daka crystals inside was difficult, but with transistors where his grandfather had used vacumn tubes, and modern engineering tools, Richard took one of the finest devices of its age and made it even better. The next time he asked his father's permission to wear the family's colors, he did it from inside his version of the suit. Mayor O'Connor turned white, and for a moment Richard was afraid he'd actually given the old man a heart attack.

But finally, with his father's grudging permission, and the enthusastic cheerleading of his grandfather, Richard O'Connor made his debut as the Freedom Eagle only a few months ago. He has already learned just how right his father was; balancing his work, his family, his girlfriend, and his responsibilities as the Freedom Eagle is an incredibly difficult task. A task worthy of a story; and for the first time, Richard O'Connor is telling his own story.

Looks great! I love the legacy idea.

Two questions:

1. Concerning "Super-Strength 4 (Heavy Load 1.25 tons; Flaws; Limited-only while flying)", could you explain why your Super Strength doesn't work when you aren't flying? This could be important during game play, because it could help define what "only while flying" means. For example, could you activate your flight, hover stationary, a half-inch off the ground and then use your Super Strength like any normal hero with Super Strength who didn't take this limitation (while grappling, breaking things, etc.), or do you actually have to be flying, i.e. moving up, down, or across at a reasonable flight speed to use it? The former probably isn't much of a limitation. It's probably a complication ("Super Strength doesn't work when Flight power is inoperable"). If you actually have to be in the air flying and the power only helps you lift stuff with your flight momentum (and not break things or grapple) then that probably is worth a 1 point flaw.

2. How do you change into your super identity (that takes less than 3 seconds)? And how can you be prevented from changing into your super identity?

Costs: Abilities 34 + Combat 42 + Saves 12 + Skills 21 (84 Ranks) + Feats 20 + Powers 24 + Drawbacks -3 = 150 PPs

Trade-offs: Attack/Save DC: +13/+7, Defense/Toughness: +10/+10

Looks great! I love the legacy idea.

Two questions:

1. Concerning "Super-Strength 4 (Heavy Load 1.25 tons; Flaws; Limited-only while flying)", could you explain why your Super Strength doesn't work when you aren't flying? This could be important during game play, because it could help define what "only while flying" means. For example, could you activate your flight, hover stationary, a half-inch off the ground and then use your Super Strength like any normal hero with Super Strength who didn't take this limitation (while grappling, breaking things, etc.), or do you actually have to be flying, i.e. moving up, down, or across at a reasonable flight speed to use it? The former probably isn't much of a limitation. It's probably a complication ("Super Strength doesn't work when Flight power is inoperable"). If you actually have to be in the air flying and the power only helps you lift stuff with your flight momentum (and not break things or grapple) then that probably is worth a 1 point flaw.

Well, the listed archetype does get a bonus from using the Super-Strength to grapple, but only while flying. Since the harness is described as anti-gravity in nature, I think it's likely that the daka-crystal power source is an all-or-nothing affair. Enough anti-gravity power lets the Eagle fly _and_ lets him lift heavy objects, but he can't lift those objects if he isn't actually flying. Let's say he can't use his super-strength without using simultaneously using at least one rank of flight.

So while Freedom Eagle might be able to lift a small car, he'd have to do it by flying into it at speed (not a nice way to treat Grandpa's design!) instead of merely lifting it from ground level.

(It's a bit like Ultimate Power's suggested use of flight as an enhancement to super-strength, but used in a different way.)

2. How do you change into your super identity (that takes less than 3 seconds)? And how can you be prevented from changing into your super identity?

Well, walking around in the full Freedom Eagle regalia all the time would look a little suspicious. =D The anti-gravity harness isn't as bulky and cumbersome as a full battlesuit, so snapping it on is a free action as opposed to a full-round action. It's _not_ a flaw that the original Freedom Eagle had, interestingly, but you have to pay a price for those upgrades to speed and strength...

So, the harness is a large, cumbersome device that he has to get out (briefcase?) and put on, but because of the new tech, he can put it on very quickly? Sounds good to me.

Yes, this sounds quite likely. The harness is somewhere around the Batman Beyond batsuit on the "I am a costume _and_ a power!" scale. It's not as incredibly bulky as a true battlesuit, but you can't carry it around in your pocket either.

Yay! Am I good to go?
