Fred Furlong looks like a brick. He is only a whisker over five foot, but has an unnatural build, with a barrel chest and short, thick limbs loaded with slabs of muscle. He looks like a short, steroid-loaded body builder.

As a 'detective' of sorts, Fred normally wears casual clothes that can fit his abnormal body, like a t-shirt, jacket and joggers. He usually wears a blood red t shirt with “M” on the front.

 

Power Descriptions:

Freddy Furlong is a mutant with an unnaturally stocky and resilient body. When he “pumps up”, his blood becomes supercharged – meaning his muscles swell and engorge, his veins and arteries throb, and he looks like a sack of watermelons.

 

Freddy has the ability to control his own blood and the blood of others. He can thin or clot blood, for instance. Doing so will make his eyes red and his skin blister. He prefers a straight fight than “cheating” with his blood control powers.

 

His most spectacular power is to drain the blood from his body, forming a homunculus of blood whilst his own body remains desiccated and inanimate.

 

History:

Fred grew up in a poor Immigrant family (from Poland). His father was always keen for his son to be able to “look after himself” and young Fred was soon down the boxing gym, pounding away. It was here that it slowly became apparent Fred was a mutant, although this was not confirmed until many years later. As he continually punched, and was punched back, his body grew into a short, squat and muscular form, able to shrug off even the strongest right hook. He soon became a feared bareknuckle boxer, and got mixed up with the mafia.

 

When Fred refused to do any more of the Mafia’s dirty work, he was shot and left to dead. It was at this point he discovered his real power: the ability to control blood. His wound stopped bleeding and he arose stronger than ever.

 

The years of boxing, combined with a minimal education, had left Fred a little short in the brains department. It was at this point that Harry Hound, part time private investigator and all time coward, stepped in. He was looking for a partner, someone to be the hero.

 

Personality & Motivation:

Fred is a good natured but crude guy. He has a heady laugh and has a strong sense of honour. He dislikes crooks, liars, cheats, and people who hit dames.

 

Having said that, he has a nasty temper, and when he fights, he fights dirty. Fred grew up on the streets, and knows that when you slug it out, you do what you need to. He is quick to use his fists and intimidate people.

 

Fred is a good guy, and likes being a hero, even though he knows he ain’t the smartest tool in the box. He relies on Harry Hound to keep him “in business”, although he is more moral than Harry. Fred will take on a charity case, much to Harry’s annoyance.

 

Powers & Tactics:

Fred is exceptionally strong and tough, with a body that has adapted to blunt force. His blood gives him superhuman strength. He is thus happiest slugging it out fist to fist, where his strength, training, and resilience will win through.

 

If he has time, he will “pump up”, rushing more of his super-charged blood to his already powerful muscles. This takes a moment or two, and is short lived, but makes him much stronger, able to run and leap even further. When this happens, his muscles swell massively, his veins bulge out, and he throbs with every heartbeat.

  

Whilst Fred prefers a straight out slug, he can use his control over blood to offensive purposes. Normally this would mean either thinning the blood, making the enemy tired and weak. He can also cause bleeding eyes and ears, blinding his opponent (at least till they wipe the blood away). As a more dangerous measure, he can seriously hurt people by stopping the blood flow, causing bleeding, clotting, or other very dangerous effects. Of course, he only does this in more serious situations.

 

Complications:

 

Bloody: Harry's alternate form is continuous, but he cannot actually deactivate it without the blood crawling back to his body; or more accurately, if he deactivates it (leaving a puddle of his blood), he cannot restart his real body without a blood transfusion or the like. 

 

Bloody Coward: Whilst Harry Hound is technically a fanatic sidekick, in reality his courage often fails him..

 

Bloody Crude: Fred lacks many social graces and is happiest in the gutter with street life. He ain’t going to fit in with polite society.

 

Bloody Dames, Don’t Ever hit Dames: Fred may fight mean and dirty, but he was always brought up to know that a man don’t ever hit a dame.

 

Bloody Illiterate: Fred can’t read or write, although he has learned a crude signature.

  

Bloody Messy: Fred's blood related powers are, to be frank, rather messy and ugly. It isn't a gore-fest (and remains PG-12), but it’s easy enough to see the signs of his powers (specks, drops, or pools of congealed blood), or follow the trail of his homunculus. And the sight of his blood draining out of his mouth to form the homunculus is a little unsettling...

 

Bloody Old and Rusty: The Bloodhound Detective Agency always uses second hand and out of date equipment and vehicles, with a tendency to break down, belch and burp.

 

Blood, and only Blood: Bloody Mess’ blood control powers require the target to have blood (as opposed to be alive). Some creatures (such as Jellyfish, or fungus) without a blood system will be immune to his powers.

The HoundThe Hound2.jpg

 

Power Level: 7 (160/160PP)

Trade-Offs: +3 Attack / -3 Defence, +3 Defence / -3 Attack

Unspent Power Points: 0

In Brief: Dishevelled gumshoe detective / dog.

Alternate Identity: Harry Hound

Identity: Secret ('The Hound' is known, but not his superpowers)

Birthplace: Freedom City

Occupation: Freelance detective

Affiliations: Bloodhound detective agency

Family: Penny Hound, Sister (Cook)

 

Description:

Age: 50

Apparent Age: 50

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Caucasian

Height: 5’8”

Weight: 60Kgs

Eyes: Brown

Hair: Brown

 

Harry Hound looks like a dishevelled middle aged man. He is in reasonable shape but looks rather sunken in. He tends to wear a crumpled mac, creased shirt, and loose tie. He chain smokes and has nicotine stained fingers. In short, he looks thoroughly unprofessional.

 

He does not (normally) wear a costume. He can, of course, preserve his secret I.D to a degree by his dog form. Whilst Harry is known as "The Hound", his ability to change into a dog and his canine powers are a secret.

 

In dog form, the Hound looks like a mangry mongrel dog. For some reason, whilst his clothes morph into dog form (and back again) his loose tie (presumably for psychological reasons) remains round his dog neck (unless he takes it off - which he will do if he remembers!)

 

Power Descriptions:

Harry has the power to transform into a rather large cross-breed dog, which has the same characteristic dishevelled look, all matted hair. In either form, Harry can talk as a human, or bark like a dog (although as a human his barks come with an accent, and as a dog his speech is rather gruff). In either form he is able to mentally control dogs by touching them (normally scratching or patting them in a friendly way)

 

History:

Harry’s abilities, although he doesn’t know it, are a result of a magical enchantment (or curse) many years ago. The men of his family are able to shape change into dogs. He found this out in his late teens, and it came in handy when he joined the police force (initially as a dog handler!). However, Harry is a coward, dishevelled, and often late. Desipte his fine mind and skills, he was eventually kicked out of the police force for tardiness. At this point he set up his own private agency.

 

Harry needed some muscle, and that’s when he heard of Bloody Mess a.k.a. Fred Furlong. They might be chalk and cheese in many ways, but they were both street guys, and soon struck up a friendship.

 

Personality & Motivation:

Harry is a curious man, always one to stick his nose in to a dirty or suspicious circumstance. When danger comes knocking, however, Harry is a bit of a coward, and will tend to run or talk his way out of a problem. He has set up his detective agency as a way to make money, which it doesn’t do a hell of a lot of, as Fred takes on charity cases. Harry is less inclined to do so himself, but deep down he probably would.

 

He is not a particularly cultured man, and comes across as cynical. Whilst he can actually communicate with dogs, he doesn’t particularly like them.

 

Powers & Tactics:

Harry uses his powers to augment his natural detective skills. By adopting the form of a dog he can spy on people, or track them. If push comes to shove, he is a good fighter, in either form (although his dog form is slightly stronger). He has always been a bit of coward, so one of his preferred moves is to push people over and run away. He has got pretty good at this. In general he fights like he talks, dirty and sneaky.

 

In either dog or human form, Harry can speak human languages or bark/woof like a dog (speaking to canines).
